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

On Fire - (6:20) 117 BPM

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!

Review: The clue is in the title here as Brighton-based funk label Jalepeno have rounded up fifteen of the best soul sister cuts from their mighty catalogue. Boasting a mix of old and new, and spanning quite a few different styles too, this compilation couldn't have come soon enough. 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".

Thank You (Stripped Groove mix) - (6:43) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
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: 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".

Get Up - (3:26) 150 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
Review: Some people have incorrectly dubbed Switzerland as being well, a bit boring. This is nonsense of course, and, with their cheeky mash-up productions, Swiss duo The Niceguys take great delight in proving the haters wrong. The EP's title alone sets the tone - Joy indeed. There are two incendiary party jams featured here - "Pride & Joy" leads the way, taking Marvin Gaye's ode to fatherhood and setting it to a slow trumpet-stab-lead hip-hop groove. Providing a contemporary foil to the latter, "Get Up" sees classic Nate Dogg (and Eve!) set to a lively electro-house backbone. Feel the party joy!

Review: Nuremberg's Jayl Funk is becoming one of the most important producers and DJs in the funky breaks scene. He returns on his own Honkey Phonk label with "Across The Sea (Club version)" a soul funk excursion in the vein of Teddy Pendergrass or Chic but hey don't ask us, ask the DJ or keep diggin' Daddy O! There's also two killer remixes at hand; first up is Funkonomics with a rendition which goes for a more stripped and '80s sound with synth funk bass, 808 hi-hats and vocoded vocals. Finally DJ Love's remix is definitely the party starter on here, with its hip-hop inspired block rocking' beats.

from $1.93
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: 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: Having cut his teeth on Tru Thoughts, veteran soulful beatmaker Diesler moves on to pastures new with his 5th long player, Sounds Familiar, on A Little Something Recordings. Don't worry though, the clue's in title with the album boasting 12 nu-funk jams that are just as good as the old stuff. Highlights here include the deep and percussive future-soul vibes of "Human When You Dance", the very topical and tropical electronic baile funk of "Gold In Rio" and the rolling bass boogie locomotive "Soho To Brighton". This time round familiarity breeds content(ment).

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!

Not sure what ol' blue eyes would make of it all, but with breaky rejigs of perennial faves by the likes of Sam & Dave, Dylan, Don Covay and Area Code 615 (the Old Grey Whistle Test theme), we're sure dancefloors up and down the country will give it the big thumbs up.

Review: Four party-shaped edits from the always-reliable Gamm label, this time by DJ Will Rock who tweaks the smoky soul of Moses Dillard's "Got To Find A Way" into a canny nu-funk block-rocker and blends Ripple's classic b-boy anthem "A Funky Song" with a late-period Pete Rock beat on "Sure Is Funky". Best of the bunch is the weaving of Busta Rhymes' vocals over the JBs water-tight funk on "Ass On Fire".

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: 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: Here we have the sophomore outing for Californian edit crew, Boogie Down, who specialise in sunkissed retro West Coast vibes. Keen to make up for lack of releases, they've jammed a whopping nine scalpel jobs on to this release. We've been grooving to the whole lot here at Juno HQ, but our faves include the minimal cowbell and clap-athon "Get Up", the dreamy Supremes teaser, "Hanging On" and the squelchy G-funk synth jam, "West Side". Dope.

Review: Serious edit heat from the young Parisian who's always on the Pulse: Three well known funk soul classics, Rhyze's "Relax & Enjoy" gets an upbeat, roof-raising treatment with full emphasis on the instantly distinctive groove. Spinners' "It's A Shame" enjoys a sun-splashed Brazilian treatment while GQ's "Shake" gets a turbo-charged shake-up that makes it more floor friendly than a thick shag carpet. And that's friendly. Get to know.

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: 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: Factory Records has always been a source of fascination for music historians and reissue merchants, though their focus has usually been on the label's indie credentials. Here crate-digging experts Strut take a different approach, shining a light on the label's contribution to dancefloor culture in the post-punk years. Largely steering clear of the biggest anthems, FAC Dance offers a good mix of familiar tunes ("Love Tempo", "Confusion", "Cold As Ice" etc), long-forgotten gems (see the alt electro-funk of A Certain Ratio and Marcel King's E'd-up Hacienda anthem "Reach For Love") and genuine curiosities (check The Duratti Column's dubbed-out proto Balearica, the piano-laden Latino vibes of Quando Quango's "Genius" and Biting Tongues oddball post-punk Afro-fusion). A fitting tribute to a truly visionary label.

Review: Here's yet another rare '80s compilation with even more deep cuts than the last. Where do they find them all? Heavenly Sweetness clearly know but they ain't telling! They are showing though, and here on Digital Zandoli they reveal 12 newly discovered disco, boogie and zouk tracks recorded about 30 years ago in the West Indies. We're clearly spoilt for choice on this record, but highlights include the synthetic sea breeze grooves of Puzzle Pulsion's "Mwoin Ka Songe", the mellow Afro grooves of Zanman's "Poutchi" and the abstract body music via a sandy beach vibes of OR EA's "Biguine Inferno".

Review: Perennial crate-diggers BBE have long been capable of unearthing hidden gems and shining a light on long-forgotten scenes. Here, with the help of fellow vinyl-sniffer Mr Peabody, they highlight Chicago's little-known 1970s/early 1980s underground disco and boogie scene. For those reared on the familiar sounds of New York disco and boogie, it's something of a revelation. Certainly, there's plenty for disco enthusiasts to get excited about here, from the piano & horn laden grooves of Sheila Hutchinson and Nedra to the tribal, African-influenced dancefloor rhythms of Lady Gwendolyn and Africa International. Along the way, expect to hear everything from hustlin' party jams and essential 80s groove to crackly disco-funk and distinctly cosmic soul. Absolutely essential!

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: On this compilation, Strictly Breaks aim to provide 'crazy' instrumental versions and rare mixes of some vintage soul and funk gems. They do that and then some over the course of 15 tracks, highlights of which include the gorgeous melancholia of The Emotions, the low down and dirty funk of Beat Mann's tough rework of Wilson Picket, the string laden joy of early Jacksons and some real car chase in a 70s cop movie vibes from Marvin Gaye. Damn funky!

Review: For their latest statement of intent, Bristol's nu-funk troubadours The Allergies have found a new home at Goodgroove. They've consummated the relationship in fine style too, going a whopping four times in the process. "Special People" is a roaring breaky funker that could easily be mid-70s O'Jays. Elsewhere we get daisy age hip hop jam "React", vintage Stax-style stomper "As We Do Our Thing" and guitar-led rap "Feel Alright". We're glad they're back!

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: 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: Nope this ain't a long lost '70s record by Princess Leia's dad, it's by the veteran American south guitar player of the same name. Originally released on Sylvia 'Sugar Hill' Robinson's Stang label in 1977, Hot Lunch originally wowed people with its 'unique' album cover as much as the music contained therein. Now it's remastered with its 10 Sly Stone-esque tracks sounding better than ever. The jury's still out on the sleeve though.

Review: Boulder-based badman Griz delivers his fourth album and it's - without argument - his finest work to date. A firing future funk document that's steeped in instrumentation and obese, floor-focussed dynamics and grooves so powerful they could bring an end to all comas, his organic signature is matched toe-to-toe with bold muscular production and anti-formulaic subversion. Highlights include the authentic 70s blacksploitation funk strutter "Get Down", the smoky, lazer-rasing Pretty Lights-esque "It's All Good" and the wholesome classic hip-hop jam "For The Love" with Talib Kweli. Say it loudly, say it proudly... Griz has gone next level on this one.
