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: You can never accuse Wah-Wah 45s of being boring, or indeed of giving poor value for money. If however, there is any doubt left in your mind, then this sixth instalment of the Allo Love series will dispel them for good. Curated by Leeds / London based electronica act Paper Tiger, they present 15 disparate gems for our listening pleasure. Highlights include the loungey swagger of "One Thirty Three" by Chrome Glaciers, Paper Tiger's own abstract synth-funk beats of on "Ebor Basement" and the knackered boogie of "Shoe Girl" by Bastien Keb. Top-notch stuff.

Review: Dead set on 'funky vibes' Hotmood hail from Mexico (the new, nu-disco capital?) and here they appear on Ganbatte with a new four track gem-filled package. The Country People EP sees them do what they do best - delve deep into the 70s to find the finest slo-mo boogie tunes to edit. The title track is a stomping, clavinet march -along, whilst "I Wanna Funk" sees B.T. Express get stripped down and extended. Elsewhere the squelchy Usisilike gets housed up and "Movin' II (Furious Edit)" is a gloriously uplifting disco chant-along.

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.

As We Do Our Thing - (4:04) 130 BPM
from $1.96
Review: The Allergies are duo (DJ Moneyshot and Rackabeat) who hail from Bristol. However unlike many a fellow Bristolian, these guys don't produce bone-rattling bass productions, instead they opt for the 'feel-good, energetic ear candy' of mashed-up funk, soul, disco and breaks. Their album, As We Do Our Thing, is out now, and here we have two tracks culled from it. First up, "Love's Supposed To Be" fuses twangy, Fatboy Slim/Wiseguys-style '90s big beat with a soaring soul vocal, whilst on the digital flipside the album's title track is all about loose '60s R&B/soul loops - pure party (guilty) pleasures!

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".

Thank You (Stripped Groove mix) - (6:43) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: The thing about the Katakana Edits series is that, with each new release, sometimes it's a compilation, sometimes there's a solitary curator. Here on their 43rd outing they keep it nice and simple - two sizzling summer edits by Rocknrolla Soundsystem. A Dutch foursome (Sebastian, Raymond, Martijn Bosch and Joris), here the soundsystem present two contrasting versions of the same tune - "Thank You". Firstly the Cosmic Funk mix is an eight-minute funk escalator that builds on a brassy, sassy swaggering groove. Meanwhile the Stripped Groove mix keeps the cool 70s vibes but strips everything back to a hip, loose jam.

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: 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: 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: Not much is know about JM edits, but considering this EP is released on the well established Gamm, it's fair to say this was always be something from the classier end of the re-edit spectrum. Here we get four slick and smooth re-teaks of quality soulful house ("Africa"), soul ("I Love You") Afro beat ("Flea") and dobby, bluesy funk ("Who Is He"). Top class!

Review: Old Blue Eyes was many things, but he never was known for his ability to get down with the funk. Not to worry though, as Eyal Goldman (aka Funk Sinatra) has this well and truly covered. Back with a follow up to his recent popular EP of classic soul reworks, the formula ain't changed: great, feelgood tunes gently toughened, tweaked and extended for modern party-orientated dancefloors. This time it's James Brown, Rufus Thomas and the Bar Kays who get the FS treatment.

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.

Review: Greece's Timewarp label continues to plunder their disco reserves whilst flashing the proverbial funky cash willy-nilly. Yes we have another 16 fresh cuts (admittedly down from the last instalment's 31 so they should maybe think about tightening their wallets a little) on Freestyle 4 Funk 5. Timewarp is once again selector and some the many highlights he chosen here include the digi dancehall headnodder "Fyah Fyah" by Balkan Riddims, Jyal Funk's pulsating breaky electro rework of "Jamaican" by Funky Destination and the breathy jazzy shuffle of "Sensitive Kind" by Truez.

Review: The ever-eclectic Wah-Wah 45s have really outdone themselves this time, signing up seminal Afrobeat musician Dele Sosimi for a forthcoming long player entitled You No Fit Touch Am. Now they present to us "E Go Betta", a teaser for said LP, which sees the one-time musical director of Fela's Egypt 80 deliver a cutting slice of social commentary over an intricate and brassy backing. O'Flynn also steps up to present his own edit which concentrates on a more 4/4 dancefloor-friendly structure. Impressive.

Review: Lyons' Uptown Funk Empire made a splash a year or two ago with groove-packed album, The Empire Strikes Back. Now here's the accompanying long player, literally bursting with remixes of a selection of cuts. "Now" gets reworked as piano-soul by Uraz Kurt, as avant garde funk by Staro75 and straight up disco-house by Patchworks. The Gemini Bros give "Boogie" a flute-heavy makeover, while Moto take it in and electro-house direction. "No One's Gonna Stop Us Now" gets turned into Jamiroquai by Uraz Kurt and skippy funk-house by The Gemini Bros. Also "You've Got To Have Freedom" gets some retro Tijuana Brass stylings by Patchworks.

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 first installment of Late Night Tales' After Dark was that rarest of things: a DJ mix that retained a smoky sense of early morning, home listening atmosphere while retaining an open-minded focus on the dancefloor. This follow-up - once again compiled and mixed by Bill Brewster - offers more of the same. Musically it's pleasingly varied, moving from the string-drenched downtempo beauty of Typesun's "Last One Home", to the heady Balearic rock of General Lee, via Justus Kohnke, the soulful post-bruk smoothness of As One, and the sprightly analogue electronics of Emperor Machine's remix of Paqua's "Late Train". There's also a bunch of previously unreleased tunes to enjoy, including killer contributions from the Mang Dynasty (AKA Ray Mang), The Gino Fontaine (Chicken Lips man Andrew Meecham) and - most surprising of all - The Grid and Robert Fripp.

Review: The series is the result of house legend Joey Negro's admiration for all the semi anonymous vinyl junkies that he has encountered on his own vinyl quests. Following the success of the Red Greg-compiled first instalment, we now have veteran radio broadcaster and soul aficionado Paul Phillips delivering his selection of long-lost classics. It's a veritable feast of rare disco releases (25 in all!), highlights of which include the glossy Philly sounds of State Department's "Slow Love", the Chic-isms of Pike's "Good Feelings", the digital electro-funk of Midnight Energy's "Saving Of My Love" and the sublime synth-soul of Ron Richardson's "Ooh Wee Babe".

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: 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!
