Review: The Rev's back! Parisian edit magician serves up four revised soul excursions for modern audiences to experience the second time around and in true style. On the first side he takes the knife to a couple of Gladys Knight classics, namely the feel-good "Don't Make Me Run Away" and the uplifting "Love Gives You The Power". On the flip it's George Duke's turn, "Say That You Will" is you all know is a sultry deep soul number for lovers while "Party Down" is definitely for night people; this one is pitched up for optimum dancefloor effectiveness too!

Review: KS French and Mr Given Raw are like two peas in a pod. A disco-shaped pod. Here they join forces again, both providing both solo tracks and a joint collaboration too. Label boss KS French plonks a platform show on the dancefloor first with the tight James Brown-sampling funk of "Still On the Case". Then MGR takes over for two sizzlers - the catchy soul-pop lament "Beggin You" and the psychedelic soul stomp of "Funky Mama". Finally the titans clash on the phased disco-boogie joy of "Never Give You Up". Good times.

Review: Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".

Sugar (The Reflex instrumental) - (6:59) 125 BPM
from $2.19
Review: "Sugar" lay unissued for many years, before finally seeing the light of day on BBE's 2003 set of previously unheard Roy Ayers' recordings, Virgin Ubiquity. It was later remixed by Dave Lee under his familiar Joey Negro pseudonym, and here gets the multi-track edit treatment from French scalpel specialist The Reflex. He typically does a good job of building energy and excitement throughout the vocal version's seven-minute duration, showcasing different instruments (vibraphone, horns, bass, guitars) and the track's alternating male and female vocals, in the manner of Tom Moulton or Walter Gibbons. The accompanying instrumental is tasty, too, but lacks a little of the vocal revision's soulful charm.

Review: A DJ since the '80s, Argentinian by way of London Fabiolous Barker has appeared previously on Midnight Riot, Masterworks and Funkfusion and presents us with some quality disco edits. "Sticky Party (ReVamp 2016)" is a funky excursion to soul heaven that you'll never forget, while it's back to the disco on "The Boogie" which reworks Uncle Louie's "Full-Tilt Boogie" from 1979. "Into The Disco Scene" is the kind of recycled disco loops that Thomas Bangalter would be proud of while "The Crown" mashes up a few disco nuggets actually, but absolutely to perfection; try and guess which ones... but don't forget to dance!

Review: Here they are at it again, fusing, twisting and sampling all the hits, obscurities and bangers you've come to love over the years; be they hip hop, electro, pop, funk or rock. Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!

Review: You can always rely on the Midnight Riot label to pick up a party. Seriously they'd get people dancing in a morgue. Here label favourite Ziggy Phunk turns in four sweet and tasty reworks of obscure 80s dance cuts. "Give It To You" is a soft focus helium-voiced disco cut that puts The Bee Gees to shame, "Some Kinda Lover" is nearly seven minutes of tight and sharp 80s electro-soul, "Sneak Preview" is a shiny filtered pop gem that bears more than a passing resemblance to early Madonna, and "Stand Up" is a sped up celebration of guitars and trumpets.

Review: Having previously plied his trade on Tonbe's Disco Fruit label, re-editor Disco Funk Spinner transfers to Katakana Edits. Providing the ongoing series' 40th release, the Tel Aviv-based producer delivers a trio of tidy reworks. "Breakfast Jam" is bold and brassy, offering a chunky, hip-wigglin' version of a lesser-celebrated Michael Jackson workout complete with crashing drum breaks, scratching, clipped guitars, bold horns and impassioned, freestyle vocals. "What's Your Name" expertly cuts up David Bowie's "Fame", emphasizing the original's killer disco-funk groove along the way, while standout "Written Letter" extends a sweet soul gem, in the process turning it into a six minute club workout.

On the flip we have got the jazzy and soulful "Blast Off" which features a big band energy and an explosive delivery which as label 45 Live say themselves "will be gracing decks from Bristol to Boston, Sydney to San Francisco and all points between". And who are we to argue!

Review: It's time to raise a glass of something cold, fizzy and boozy to the long-running G.A.M.M imprint, which celebrates a century of releases with a trio of new disco-era Michael Jackson reworks from regular contributors Moplen and The Reflex. As usual, The Reflex hits the spot, playing around with the original parts to deliver a punchy, floor-friendly extension of Off The Wall cut "Burn This Disco Out" that sounds like some mythical, long lost Tom Moulton remix. Moplen weighs in with two versions of Jacksons' banger "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)"; a DJ-friendly effort that begins with easily mixable grooves, and a superior, mostly instrumental 'Remix' that builds up masterfully via a sumptuous, orchestral intro.

Review: Here on Neon Dancer Mr Absolutt stays true to his name and goes absolutely pure on his homage to the sound of early RnB dancefloors. "Night Drive" is a hazy blend of What's Love Got To Do With It tropical synths and sultry Princess-esque grooves. Elsewhere "One Love" is fluffy boogie fun, "The Cross" is a twangier Paradise Garage-era raw funk jam and "Champ" is a hiNRG-funk crossover. A refreshing 80s vodka cocktail of an EP (no prizes guessing which brand).

Review: With a name like Honkey Phonk Records and a founder called Jayl Funk, it's no surprise to find this label comes with a stated dedicated to 'straight funky sounds'. This maxim is lived up to on this tenth label compilation, which coincidentally features ten tracks, with Jayl and his roster stepping up for some no-nonsense party music. This time round the label boss takes the lion's share of the release, providing seven new cuts including the chirpy retro strut of "Dirty", the bloc-rockin' breaks of "Rising" and the vintage sample-heavy ecstatic medley of "Don't Stop Movin". Other highlights include the bluesy funk-rock of "Bohannon" by EuPe and the raw underground 60s soul of "Let Me Do My Thing" by Voodoocuts. Quality party fodder.

Review: Basement Freaks is George Fotiadis, a Hamburg native who is considered by some as "The hardest working man in funk." This time he appears for UK-based label Jalapeno so his style is right at home. "Talkin About 'Dat" evokes the spirit of legends like Cameo, no doubt due to regular partner in crime Georges Perin and his smooth vocals. "Little Red Afro" gets the Curtis Mayfield vibes happening with a bit of help from the velvery voice of Washington D.C's Mustafa Akbar. Australia's Kylie Auldist also lends a helping hand on a stand out track here; the super soul funk jam "White Hot" while the mazing lungs of Newcastle's John Turrell (as heard recently in collaboration with Hot Toddy and Kraak & Smaak) assist on the powerfully emotive "The Call".

On "Give It To You" we're loving the sultry vibes he's accentuating from the original and "Summer Breeze" takes us back for another glorious ride on the soul train assisted by some nice filtered and loopy build ups that'd make even The Noodleman stand up and notice!

Here we get two instalments of "After The Dance" - one with lush brass and strings, and a rolling discofied version. Also included is the uplifting vocal bouncer "Go Away Dream". Slick stuff.

Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

Review: Given his encyclopedic knowledge of music, you'd expect any compilation put together by Bill Brewster to be full of unlikely gems and lesser-known anthems. That's certainly the case with After Dark, the first in a new DJ-focused series from the Late Night Tales camp. From start to finish, Brewster's selections are spot on, from the lowdown, slo-mo disco oddness of Sheffield chanteuse Marti Caine's "Love The Way You Love Me" and wide-eyed, acid-laden kosmiche of Coober Peder University Band's "Moon Plain", to the dirty electrofunk of Zed Bias's "Koolade" (featuring Toddla T, of all people) and mid'80s percussion fest of Martin Kershaw's "Keep On Pokin". If that wasn't enough, Brewster has also unearthed a decent Jamiroquai record. The wonders never cease.

Review: The Wah Wah 45s label is responsible for rescuing of the work of long forgotten Canadian/Haitian pianist, Henri-Pierre Noel. Both his 1979 debut Piano and its early 80s follow-up One More Step have been rediscovered and repressed by the label, and here we get a selection of cuts from the latter all reworked by the French producer The Reflex. There are four killer reworks here - the pumped up Afro-disco belter, "Funky Spider Dance", the boogie-up clavinet heavy take on "A Fifth Of Beethoven", the ramshackle island grooves of "Back Home...Sweet Home" and toughened up raw funk of "Diskette". Class.

On the digital flip however, things liven up with the shimmering diva funk of "Emotions". Praise be!

Review: Stockholm-based Seegweed has been part of the extended GAMM family for some time, having delivered the first of three white-hot re-edit releases way back in 2011. Even so, this latest batch of tasty reworks marks his first material for two years. As usual, he hits the spot from the word go, delivering a scorching, floor-friendly extension of Aretha Franklin's high octane soul killer "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" that's notable for its' reverential treatment of the original source material. There's a little more soft house hustle about the smoldering, electric-piano heavy soul-jazz strut of "Save My Love", while closer "Make Love To Your Mind" turns a Bill Withers standard into a sweet, heart-felt anthem that brilliantly increases in intensity midway through via some heavy additional percussion.

Review: Nothing cheap about the complier of the latest installment of Katakana Edits series. Cheapedits has lined up a sizzling selection of party-orientated scalpel jobs, and gives The Supremes a thorough early 90s hip-house makeover on "Stopin". Inxs get a sleazy big beat facelift on "Tonight", and it's all about the vintage 60s shuffle on "Blacktel". "Buyer" provides some poppy ska and "Qui Qui" wraps things up with closing-time-at-a-tequila-bar vibe.

Dance, Love & Die - (6:09) 121 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.19
Review: Since making his debut in the mid noughties - some 15 years after he began making beats -Ibiza-based Guts has developed his sound somewhat. Where his early releases doffed a cap to classic trip-hop and downtempo grooves, recent outings have effortlessly joined the dots between live funk, golden era hip-hop and modern soul, with some notable jazz and Latin American influences thrown in. Eternal, his latest full-length, continues this approach, throwing in additional nods to P-funk (the superb "Give You Up"), nu-jazz ("Incomplete"), and Afrobeat ("Dance, Love & Die"). With a string of guest musicians, singers and rappers lending a hand, Eternal is a vibrant, thrill-a-minute album that shows off the full range of Guts' finely honed skills.

Anyone who's a fan of vintage Public Enemy will immediately be taken back to the days of funky drummer beats and cut-up soul samples with just one listen to this daisy-age corker. Don't believe the hype kids, well actually in this case, do!

As usual it's a funk-heavy selection, of which highlights include an organ-led, 60s style makeover for the Jacksons on "Dave Jackson", the P-Funkisms of "Party Sweep", the Yazoo-twisting of "Go Well" and the Snoop Dogg-goes-ska laid back grooves of "Cantaloop Dog".

Review: Africa Seven continue their rich vein of releases this year with an indepth exploration of the Tala A.M. discography. Those unfamiliar with the Cameroonian's story will be shaken by the adversity he lived through before going on to enjoy a successful music career; blindness and the death of both parents afflicted him as a child. However Tala Andre Marie's love of music was his guiding light, as was Cameroonian icon Manu Dibango who helped him relocate to Paris and thus began a recording career consisting of no less than 13 albums! African Funk Experimentals 1975 To 1978 sees Africa Seven dip into the Tala AM archives for a ten track presentation of his funkiest cuts during the early years of recording for the Fiesta label. "Hot Koki" is a particular treat, whilst disco selectors will love "Sugar Lump".
