Night Strangers - (4:47) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

On Fire - (6:20) 117 BPM
from $1.84
Review: The honour of curating the 44th instalment of Katakana's Edits series has fallen on Disco Funk Spinner, a much respected re-edit guy whose work has appeared on the likes of Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.84
Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: We pity the fool who don't' dig the jams of this retro funk producer from Greece. Here he returns with a new record in a new year, but on an old label - Cold Busted. The album, The Return Of The Classic, boasts 12 new cuts to sink your teeth into, all of which cover the jazzy hip-hop that he's know for, highlights including the swaggering clavinet-lead bluesy funk of "Break My Back", the staccato breaky rock of "Put The Needle On" and the brassy tight funk of ""View From" and the title track's heavy wah-wah head nodding vibes.

Review: 2017 has started with a bang for fans of French Kiss Records label boss KS French. First was a new instalment in the "Supa Funky Edits" series and now we have a rare full solo EP from man himself. Here on the Bad Soul EP French goes for a vintage soul influenced sound, particularly the sassy and brassy James Brown-sampling opener, "Godfather Edit". Elsewhere there's a nod to his fellow countrymen Daft Punk on the Edwin Birdsong-sampling "Cola Freak Baby", the stomping, bass-fuelled shakedown of "Party Noize" and woozy sax-led boogie on the lo-fi "Give It Up".

Review: A little funk sensibility can be the best of remedies to sooth your winter chills, and this new 20-track compilation from JalapeNo is the perfect remedy. The imprint has it down when it comes to releasing contemporary soul-dance, and peeps like the Ephemerals, Basement Freaks, and Izo Fitzroy are all revelations in of themselves. Just to give you a little flavour of this steaming hotpot of sounds and grooves, there's a little tribal disco slaying on Soopasoul's "Hustlin'", vintage Motown soul with The Allergies and "Since Youave Been Gone", and contemporary r&b vibes through the vocal talent of Alexia Coley and her "Jekyll & Hyde" tune. There's something in here for all walks of life, so be sure to flick through this baby to find your kink.

Review: If life teaches you anything it's to expect the unexpected. Here the mighty re-edit label Katakana deliver their 42nd instalment of scapel jobs. However, this time, rather than have a specific producer curate an EP, they've shaken up the formula and delivered a compilation of edits. There's a whopping 24 reworks to enjoy too, many thrills and spills, but our favourites include Morlack's explosive drum-lead MJ cover, "Don't Stop", Mister Vagz' corny 60s mash-up "Love Me Venus" and Dim Zach & Deem's baggy rework of the Happy Monday's sublime "Loose Fit".

Review: Back in the day, US rock band Kiss created quite a furore when they were finally unmasked. Now it's the turn of veteran re-edit maestro DJ Butcher who, for this new LP, now steps beyond the moniker to reveal himself as George Kelly. Staying true to his heart he album delivers 11 tracks of what he does best - expert disco scalpel jobs. Highlights include the retweaked Eric B & Rakim/Coldcut jam "Music Just Turns Me On", the six-minute, string laden clap along "Turn It Up" and the squelchy funk grooves of "No Taboos".

Review: The Bahnsteig 23 crew are flying towards the end of the year with a salvo of essential wares from their established crew and new faces alike. Sweden's Albion Venables has been doing the business on labels such as Ambassador's Reception and Macadam Mambo for the past seven years, and his first turn on Bahnsteig doesn't disappoint. In a flurry of eclecticism, the mood veers from the bubbling kosmische tones of "En Trance" through to the schlocky funk of "Schwarzen Mer", mixing live band dynamics with quirky electronics and keeping the groove delightfully authentic. The diversity maintains on the flip as "City People" taps up a moody New York flavour and "Die Marinette Der Zeit" strikes a more classic funk note.

Review: There will no doubt be much debate about the identity of the "hyped" editor behind GAMM's latest missive - the 'L' in his or her new moniker is, apparently, a clue - but it's the quality of the edits on show that matters most. Opener "Not Easy", a dubbed-out, chopped-up chunk of disco-funk sweetness full of meandering horn lines, rubber electric bass and woozy synths, is arguably the pick of the bunch, though the loopy, dewy-eyed soul-jazz attack that is "Dues Paid Fast/How I Like" is also rather good. Those looking for jazzier dancefloor flavours should also check "Jazz in Italics", a high-octane jazz-dance re-edit full of fluttering flute lines, sweaty drumming and fluid piano solos.

Here on the 32nd (!) instalment we get another 25 cuts to joyfully wade through. Highlights of this collection include the trippy and epic psychedelic opener "That Was Just His Thing" by The IN Keepers, the quirky, snake-like 70s grind "Trombones" by Herb Pilhofer and the squelchy retro grooves of "The Bulldozer" by Steve Gray.

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".

Review: Craig Charles is many things to many people - to some he's Dave Lister in Red Dwarf, to others he is the guy with class A's and jazz mags in the back of a taxi and to others he's one of the UK's finest soul DJs. Here we find him in the latter role, thankfully, introducing us to his fourth annual Funk & Soul Club collection. This time he presents 19 soulful gems. Highlights include the Chaka Khan-style "Family Tree" by Kylie Auldist, The Traffic's bombastic and brassy cover of "White Lines" and the effervescent 1960s soul homage "Next Time" by The Tibbs.

Review: Ok folks, it's a new Bomb Strikes release, you should all know the drill by now. Yep, it's all about party friendly breaks and mash-ups here, so leave your arty pretensions at the door, thank you very much. Here we have two self-professed 'funkmasters', Prosper and the suggestively titled Stabfinger hooking up for three sizzling jams. The title track mixes brassy big beat and daisy age rap, whilst "Don't Hold Back" is pure hands-in-the-air poppy electro funk before "Baby Baby Please" wraps it all up nicely with an infectious fusion of electro-swing, rap and cumbia beats.

Review: A producer well known for his unapologetic love of all things 80s, Slynk greets 2017 with this new one-track offering. "Things That You Do" is a light and breezy jaunt into mid-80s boogie territory, featuring a 'slinky' funk bassline that meanders around punchy drums, warbly voicebox excursions and trumpet from the Herb Alpert school of Diamonds. Time to order a Mai Tai, don a loud Hawaiian shirt and start moving! Infectious stuff.

Some of the many highlights featured include the powerful and bluesy soul-bearing opener, "Reckoning" by Iro FitzRoy, the candy floss tones of Berenice Van Leer on the 80s-tastic "My Mind' Made Up" by Kraak & Smaak and the muscular harmonies of Farina Miss on Featurecast's "Ego Tripping".

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: 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: Parisian Young Pulse is back with some killer edits on Paris Edits Vol. 3. First up he takes the razor to Earth Wind & Fire on "I Love You So (I Cant Let You Go)" making an effective but ergonomic edit out of this classic. There's some Lamont Dozier also; "Shout (About It)" get's a makeover, but still retains the full impact of this boogie classic. Lastly Italian legend Claudio Simonetti aka Kasso's "Dig It (It's Time") from 1982 gets a fresh revamp for modern dancefloors; more upbeat than the original but works rather well!

Review: An excellent follow-up in this series of far-out and crate-dug breaks and funk originals, "School Yard Breaks Vol 2" is a must-have for fans of untapped yet inspiring funk. B-boys young and old will bug out to Le Par Bongo Rockers' version of "Apache" for example, while the Chicano-meets-Jackson 5 of Karma's "Funk de Mambo" is simply too classy to not adore after just a few seconds.

Review: The first of two big edit releases from Resense: Titanic Bristol funk from the infrequent partnership of Monkey Boxing's Mako and serial editor Mr Bristow: "King Soul-omon's Mine" takes a cover of heavily-sampled, well-known Lee Dorsey/Allen Toussaint gem and adds a subtle contemporary swing. Flip for a full band breakdown over a pristine break as "Sock It Silly" strips down the science of every funk tune ever. Vinyl-only; this one's a keeper.

Alone With You (Loframes remix) - (4:16) 120 BPM

Review: Kraak & Smaak's recent album, Juicy Fruit, was packed with warm, loose and attractive blends of boogie, jazz-funk and soul-soaked disco. "Alone With You", a heartfelt stroll through soft-focus boogie pastures in the company of expressive vocalist Cleopold, was undoubtedly one of the highlights. Here it gets a deserved single release, accompanied by three new reworks. Purple Disco Machine steals the show with a version that deftly melds the Dutch outfit's original disco instrumentation to a tasty house groove and atmospheric nu-disco synths. Elsewhere, Knight One's rework is breezy and organic, whilst Loframes delivers a bouncy, radio-friendly house interpretation shot through with bold electronic motifs.

Review: Aroop delivers the third instalment of his "Brazil Breakdown" series with three of his floor-fired reworks to date. "Brilhantina" is a percussion-heavy slice of four-to-the-floor soul with synths straight out of the Detroit playbook. "Quem Vai Querer" ups the ante with a juicy bottom end (think mid 00's Yam Who), feel-good chants and a conga roll so hypnotic you'll be shaking your hips for hours. Finally we hit "O Mestre"; rich in warm reverbed synths and coated with a pristine-polished 80s soul vocal, this will work well on both sides of the night. Honey coated warm up or an emotional finale.

Review: Funky Breaks, Ghetto Funk, Nu Funk, Glitch Funk, Nu Skool & Old Skool Breaks: you name it, they got it! London's Funk Fusion are back with Fused Funk Volume 16, which is a whopper of a compilation; 17 servings of block rockin' beats which will suit any occasion.. almost! Some of the highlights on here (and there's quite a few) are: "More Diggity" by Jay Tip; no guesses what this is a remix of (hint: Blackstreet!) but there's no hints for which rock'n roll classic got mashed up with jump-up drum and bass on Phat Bangers Club's "Wah Wah Everybody". Elsewhere, Sticky Icky's "I Wanna Hold You" takes the timeless classic by The Beatles and injects it with some tough breaks.

from $1.84
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: Given the infamous depth of Nick The Record's vinyl collection, you'd expect this contribution to Z Records' excellent Under The Influence series to be packed to the rafters with unheralded gems. Predictably, it is, delivering 22 cuts that should be thrillingly new to all but the most dusty-fingered collectors. Picking out highlights from such an excellent and in-depth collection is tough, but try the steel drums-laden celebration of Boogsie's "Can't You See Me", the synth-laden jazz-funk badness of "Keep Your Shoes" by MC and His Great Googa-Moogas, and the fizzing, melody-rich 808 electro of Ronnie Jones "Video Games". If that's not enough there's also a swathe of DJ-friendly re-edits from Nick himself.

Review: Strictly Breaks are masters in both indentifying, and compiling, the various old tunes used as source material for hip-hop classics. Although Tribe Vibes volumes one and three are already available, volume two has yet to be released digitally until now. As expected, it's a thoroughly enjoyable rummage through lost gems and bona fide classics. There are 30 tracks here including Freda Payne's torch soul lament "We've Got To Find A Way", the sinuous muscular funk of Slave's "Son Of Slide" and Funkadelic's totally spaced out synth jam "Tales Of Kid Futuristic".

Review: Twenty-eight strictly funk beauties get assembled with a lot of love on this new collection which boasts choice cuts by the likes of The Ohio Players, Kool and The Gang, Georgie Fame, Tom Scott and Cannonball Adderley. Plenty of the songs here have been scooped up and sampled by the Beasties, Pete Rock, DJ Shadow and more, yet they remain absolutely unique and engrossing in their own right - from the almost Broadway-esque "On The Move" by The Impressions to Eddie Bo's northern soul stomp.

Review: The most Reverend P is continuing the good lord of re-edit's work, delivering rare funk and soul to new believers. This time round, "Brown Baby" by Diana Ross - culled from her famous Touch Me In the Morning album - gets gently tweaked into ten minutes of exotic funk bliss. On the digital flip however, things liven up with the shimmering diva funk of "Emotions". Praise be!

Review: Aroop Roy - London based soul boy 'of many dimensions' - has been pretty silent for nearly a year. Perhaps he just went on holiday in some exotic far-flung dimension, but he's back now, all guns blazing. Brazil Breakdown Part 2 features three spicy cuts of feverish retro Latin funk, all boasting irresistible beach party grooves and seductively catchy vocals.

Review: Less than two years deep into their groove crusade and Funk Fusion teeter on their 20th compendium of party-firing bangers. But first, volume 19 - an all-out session the leaves no stone unturned. Expect nothing but turbo charged gospel ("Happy Break"), Skillz-sampling rap damage ("Gotcha Ed Noddin'"), Wonder-full synth subversions ("Super Tissues"), Chemical Zeppelin chaos ("Block Rockin Love") and a Dre-meets-Biggie missile that's so explosive it should come with a health warning. Revel levels set high on this one.
