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.

Review: The bubbly JalapeNo imprint has been the main home to Kraak & Smaak's house-minded output over the years - although a few outings on the Spinnin' labels certainly help to cement their status as veritable nu-disco specialists - and this extensive new album Juicy Fruit feels like a natural place for them to be right now. We're talking about thirteen classy disco-leaning house gems here, all of them perfectly suitable for dancefloor domination and Saturday evening seduction. This is for the dancers, the swingers and party starters; it feels like the sort of ticket you don't get too often, an energetic and fun collection of great dance SONGS. Indulge.

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: 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!

from $1.98
Review: The first ever Athens of the North 12" is a real pearler, presenting the unreleased full length mix of Symbol 8's classic disco burner "I Thought You Wanted To Dance." The track was originally pressed on 7" back in 1978, split down the middle with one part on each side, but it's a track that was made for the full 12" format and is done so here on a Full Midtown Mix. Charlie Adams versatile vocal flipping into falsetto with ease while the band holds the solid groove is a special thing. On the flip-side is a Shock Version of "I Thought You Wanted To Dance," which surfaced later and sounds very different, sitting pretty alongside a personal DJ Fryer favourite "Call Me". Essential as always.

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: "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: Greek disco producer Timewarp teams up with an anonymous pal from funk blog extraordinaire, The Zuzu Club, for this compilation that's exclusively about 'great and fresh' new music. Although there's no theme they do look across the water to the Caribbean for some inspiration on the likes of the laid back reggae lament of "Theory Of Revolution" and the smooth dancehall grooves of "Baby Got Me Good". Elsewhere we encounter vintage electro-swing on Pavlov's "Moving Next Door", retro lounge-rock on "Jesu" By Loopez and even some good old big beat on "Jungle Boogie" by Chinese Man.

Review: Following BBE's release the Chicago troupe's Devil Made Me Do It earlier this year, Athens Of The North ensure the criminally over-looked/under-paid band continue to remain in the spotlight with an entire album of unreleased material. Recently excavated from a Chicago warehouse, complete with masters, the songs were written and recorded in the mid '70s not long before the band eventually split. If you know their material, you'll already know how funky the band are. If not, dig deep at the soonest opportunity. From the toxic-levels of cosmic funk on "Boogie" to the dreamier, space ballad "Dark Moon", this is the sound of a super-tight, incredibly talented funk band who really should have been up there with Cymande or Average White Band.

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: 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: The lovingly curated Sofrito parties, hosted by DJs Hugo Mendez and Frankie Francis alongside The Mighty Crime Minister, have grown beyond their roots in the, erm, tropical climes of East London to beach parties in Greece, shady Brooklyn bars and festivals ala WOMAD and the Big Chill. Showcasing the finest in Afro, Caribbean and Latin grooves, here we see the Sofrito collective's first compilation, and what better label to hook up with than kings of all things funky and boutique, Strut? The selection on offer here certainly opened our ears to some dynamite tropical jams, which touch on everything from cumbia to Congolese jams, native Ghanaian funk, salsa and calypso. Basically, if it's exotic and you can dance to it, it's in here.

Review: Block rocking Bavarian breaks for only the most happening block parties here courtesy of Nuremberg's Jayl Funk. He collaborates with Leeds' Tarzan Bros on "Shake It" which features four versions on offer. The original features some catchy hands in the air vocals and soul guitar licks, backed by funky breaks and bass and even a brass section! The AGFA remix is more of an electronic, nu-skool breaks sound for the club. London's Skeewiff gets the perfect combination of both previous versions, injecting a fierce breakbeat for added dancefloor dynamics, but keeping the organic feel of the original. Finally Yamaha Eletrico inject an electro beat and a razor sharp bassline into it, which will appeal to fans of Whirlpool Productions, Laidback or newcomers like Will Clarke.

Review: We've lost count of the number of volumes in the Good Times series, but it must have easily reached double figures. This instalment, previously unreleased digitally, first appeared on long-departed rave imprint React back in 2003. If you missed out first time around, it's well worth checking. Unlike later volumes, which seemed to try and tick far too many boxes musically, Good Times 3 pretty much sticks to gorgeously sunny, soulful flavours. That means a delightful, party-friendly selection that touches on vintage funk, soul, disco, boogie, US garage (remember that?), ska, reggae, classic hip-hop (the boom-bap brilliance of Main Source) and, erm, Jamiroquai. Delightfully, there are plenty of classics to plug the gaps in your collection, but also a wealth of lesser-known nuggets.

Review: Having previously delivered both chunky disco edits and cheeky, bootleg style reworks, the usually reliable Chopshop crew offer up an EP dripping with soul and funk. Included is a loose, hip-hop tempo rework of deep jazz-funk standard "Nautilus" from Copycat (ideal for those bar sets/warm up moments), a head-nodding, heavy 4/4 tweak of an odd electrofunk record from DJ Raw Sugar, and a dubbed-out take on James Brown ("The Boss") by Discotech. Best of all, though, is DJ Agent 86's "Give It To Me Baby", a cheeky, horn-toting rework of freaky 80s funk legend Rick James.

Review: Freestyle might be a label that puts out high-grade rare shizzle, but it's also a label that likes to tease. The sampler for this fine third installment of the Black Feeling series came out what seems like years ago (ok, it was August, but still). Anyway the wait is finally over and here we now have all 12 rare deep cuts for our listening pleasure. Some of the many highlights include the foxy 70s flute and guitar duel "The Bump", the hazy, retro funk cloudsurfer "Rotation" and the frisky piano jam "Buckingham Palace".

Review: Wherever it's made, disco is exotic, sumptuous and sexy. However when it's made somewhere that actually is exotic, sumptuous and sexy, well, then the sparks really fly! Brazil and disco have always been fiery lovers, and here we are presented with three tantric gems from that part of the world. "Relax" provides smooth, loungey vibes complete with strong vocal harmonies and cocktail effect atmospheres, while "Ripa Na Xulips" follows with a perkier, almost Italo-disco, synth-funk vibe. Finally "Labirinto" is slightly schmaltzy Casio-led crooner (think early '80s Latin soap theme).

Review: Tramp's supremacy as the master's of the funk reissue is almost unchallenged at this point, so far ahead is their lead. Here they have unearthed to ancient gems, originally found relinquishing on the long lost LP, on the Dream Queen album. They first transferred these two tunes to 7" vinyl for all the purists out there, now they've sold out we can all now enjoy them digitally too. The title track features trumpet harmonies a-go-go, bongos and a general far-out 60s groove. "Pearl/Among The Swine" however, adds pianos and xylophones into the heady retro mix.

Highlights include reggae-rock hybrid opener "Brothers & Sisters This Sound Run Town", the Long Train Running-esque loops of "In My Soul" and the vintage funky drummer, Acid Jazz vibes of "Roll On You".

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".

Review: Musicians have it easy these days. Tala AM (pka Tala Andre Marie), was born in Cameroun in 1950. As a child he lost both parents and went blind before building his own guitar by hand in order to make music. He was discovered and brought to Paris where he was seen by James Brown, who immediately ripped off Hot Koki for his own Hustle. Tala sued him and won, enabling him to go on and make some of the most essential Afrofunk of the 70s. Here the track gets a official treatment, being sensitively remixed by a selection of cool producers including Jkriv, EMV128 and Ben Hauke.

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 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.
