Blessin' - (11:23) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Whole Lotta Love (Back To The Box edit) - (14:08) 113 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Also known as Jamie 3Too6, this badass Chicago dude knows his disco and delivers it in devastating quantities he does, with relish. "Blessin'" is an uplifting slice of live, drivin' funk, the kind that slayed the Garage of an evening. Digital B-side "Whole Lotta Love (Back To The Box Edit)" sounds like NOIA covering Led Zeppelin - all dirty electronic riffs and 4/4 beats that slowly escalate over the course of 14 minutes!

Review: As we've learned in the past the Funk Hunk likes muscle, lots of disco muscle. His edits are never weak. So it's business as usual on Funkier Than That, his latest selection of edits. There are four cuts here to get up and down to. "Funkier Than That" is a snappy, Minneapolis-style majestic funker, "Pushin' On" is perky synth-pop and "Making Love" is fast, sweaty and a thrill a minute. Lastly "YYT Shake (Funk Hunk remix)" is a cool slice of vintage B-Boy hip-hop.

Review: Featurecast flexes hard into the crates right here: digging deep over 20 years of party breaks, he's put together the definitive journey of funk with the refreshing devil may care attitude we've come to expect. His selection excavations are here for all the benefit from... The Wiseguys's lesser-spotted jam "One For The Ladies", Lack Of Afro's horn-melting "The Outsider", Max Sedgley's sugar-sweet "Happy", Flevans' Afrofunk shake-up "12 Apostles" and Featurecast and Aldo Vanucci's 2008 hoe-down stomper "Blue Grassed Devil" are just some are just some of the floor-matured classics amid the 25 cuts on offer here. And that's before we even get to awesome mix. Don't dillydally on this one.

Review: Crown Ruler Records co-founder Jeremy Spellacey is highly regarded within the crate-digging community, primarily for his ability to sniff out copies of obscure - but, naturally, high quality - boogie-era disco records from Africa and the Caribbean. On this fine compilation, Spacetalk has offered the New Zealander the opportunity to showcase some of those finds, alongside a smattering of better-known favourites and more recent cuts (see Mike Fabulous's overlooked modern boogie gem "Wang East"). Predictably, Spellacey has delivered the goods, serving up humid, exotic and loved-up gems galore, including the fluttering brilliance of Stimela's "I Love You", the marimba-laden Balearic boogie of Feladey's "Forest Music" and Devon Russell's impeccable reggae-soul cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Move on Up".

Main Sourced - (8:30) 105 BPM
from $1.95
Review: It's 25 years since the release of Main Source's Breaking Atoms album, one of the finest full-lengths of hip-hop's renowned "golden era". To celebrate this fact, Geordie producer Smoove has put together "Main Sourced", a cut-and-paste tribute that incorporates elements from tracks sampled by the group across the celebrated set, alongside carefully selected rap samples. As you'd expect from a man of his talents and experience, it's brilliantly done, achieving a near perfect balance between the needs of the dancefloor, the dustiness of the original album, and the demands of Steinski style cut-and-paste productions. In other words, it's pretty darn good.

Review: Hot on the heels of "Outta My Head / Give Me Something" the Haggis comeback is in full effect as they drop another sure-fire brass-blasting blunderbuss: "Take It Back" features slippery lyricism of writer/comedian/MC extraordinaire Doc Brown alongside their signature tight groove and rolling sense of playful funk. Loaded with an instrumental on the B, this one is guaranteed to sizzle your summer.

Yeah Alright (Lego Funk Touch) - (6:16) 105 BPM
from $1.95
Review: It was high time for a new instalment of Lego Edits, the new frontrunner in our favourite disco reincarnations, and this is especially true when the tunes in questions are already among our ist of absolute classics! The infamous "African Rhythms", by a certain artist that we can't specify on here, is reworked into a tasty, jazzy sort of stepper carrying a chunky groove full of sweet, kinetic percussion for the dancefloor. The Lego Funk Touch version is reserved for the "Yeah Alright" edit, a more intricate funk nugget taking into account everything from samba through to jazz and even a little bit of that house edge that we all need right about now. Party tools for all!

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: Banana Hill is a London-based party helmed by Cervo, and it's built a sterling reputation for embracing all manner of global grooves. Now the party is spreading its wings by starting a record label that kicks off in fine style with the sound of multi-instrumentalist Majid Bakkas, a Moroccan musician with many strings to his bow. Both tracks on this EP have been given a delicate shove in the direction of the dancefloor thanks to Cervo, who pitches his kicks and claps just right to make for utterly natural sounding party fodder of the highest order.

Review: Crate-digging reissue specialists Africa Seven has decided to flip the script on this fantastic album, asking a range of contemporary producers to "re-imagine" a string of rare soul, funk, Afrobeat and disco jams. Thrillingly for those who remember the original West London broken beat scene, the comp contains some killer "bruk" revisions - not least Silkie's brilliantly fluid and groovy take on Ekambi Brillant's "Soul Castle" and EVM's rolling, Bugz in the Attic style revision of M'Bamina's "Mosi Zole". Elsewhere, Appleblim delivers a typically fuzzy and bass heavy rework of Sorry Bamba, Dj Food chops up Sookie's organ-laden funk slammer "Rhythm on Rhythm" an IDM heroes Plaid join the dots between vintage African jazz and woozy electronica. In a word: superb.

Get Down On You - (3:35) 52 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: Last year, Bristol's successful neo funkateers, The Allergies, delivered a strong LP, As We Do Our Thing, on Jalepeno. However rather than rest on their laurels, the pair (aka Moneyshot and Rackabeats) have continued to release new material. "Entitled To That" is their latest non-LP track and it's a blinder! Furious 60s beats stomp ahead with tambourines, claps and raucous female vocals right behind - a super authentic Motown-style jam of Marthe Reeves-proportions. On the digital flipside, "Get Down To You", looks more to the 70s for inspiration, with a tight clavinet and wah-wah guitar-led funk groove that's impossible to resist.

The title track is a slap bass funk rock spectacular featuring Morris Chestnut, Lorenzo Medici and someone called Jim. Remixer Jayl Funk also rocks up to take the tune downtown to cool, retro New York block party. Elsewhere "The Beat Inside My Soul" is steamy, rolling 60s mod funk jam, given a party friendly electro-swing makeover by DJ Maars and turned into party breaks territory by Rory Hoy. Extra party breaks ammo can also be found in bonus cuts "Beat The Clock" and "Feeling The Blues".

Feet On The Ground (Vas Moody rework) - (4:45) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: A couple of years back, Rafael Top Secret - a selector known for digging deep for inspiration - delivered a tidy re-edit of "Sekele I Like It", a previously little-known Afro-boogie cut by French artist Robert "Bobby" Helms. Copies of the 1980 album it came from, Lay Down, Girl, now go for serious money, prompting this licensed reissue. Helms' brilliant, horn-totin' original is accompanied by another cut from that album, "Feet On The Ground" - a straight-up disco affair - and two new remixes. Baptman and Betino's "Philly Vibe" mix of "Sekele I Like" is a largely instrumental interpretation that includes some killer electric piano solos, with Vas Moody's "Feet On The Ground" remix taking that track in a tightly-wound dub disco direction.

Nightflare (Appleblim dub) - (5:54) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: Like many producers whose careers began during the "post dubstep" era, Adam "Arkist" Gazia has spent much of his career sidestepping easy categorization. Even so, few would have expected his latest EP - the brilliantly titled Astrocat - to be a colourful, synth-heavy homage to the P-Funk era. Opener "Small Talk", featuring Mr Woodnote rocking the talkbox, is so authentic-sounding that it could be a long lost Funkadelic recording. The same could be said of "Astrocat", whose fuzzy synths, talkbox vocals and stuttering machine drums would make Roger Troutman purr. Also worth a mention are the slap bass-propelled boogie funk of "Only" and "Nightflare", a sweet chunk of laidback, instrumental electrofunk. Appleblim's bonus remix of the latter - dubby, intergalactic, spacey and melodious, is also superb.

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
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: 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: Stone cold classic from 1977. Zebra's self-released (and only) single has had an interesting trip in the last 15 years. First chanced upon by Ian Wright, then a hot target on the collector's merry-go-round, then a big hit for Jazzman and now, 10 years later, a potential smasher for Jazzman alumni Fryer and his consistently ace AOTN imprint. In case you don't know it, "Simple Song" is a slapping, frenzied funk groove while "I Forgot To Say" plays consummate counterpoint with a blissful honeyed ballad. It's worth jumping on this while you can...

Review: Brazilian-born, UK-affiliated DJ Marky is and always has been a DJ's DJ. The man has been at the forefront of the d&b scene since the late 90s, not primarily on the production side but as one of the very few whose able to deliver an 8 hour set of immaculate transitions, sublime dubplates, and multi-faceted tunes. As such, he's been called up on the mighty BBE to deliver the second chapter of his Influences collection, a series of compilations made up of the finest, break-driven dance music on the planet. While many classics feature in here, such as Origin Unknown's "Truly One", Influx Datum's "Meant Love", or even the likes of Roni Size, this is NOT simply a d&b mix. On the contrary, you'll find peeps like Juan Atkins under his Galaxy 2 Galaxy moniker, soul master William Devaughn, and even house tunes by Cultural Vibe. What an absolute beast - yes, MARKY!

Review: Joey Negro's Z Records have a remarkable knack for knocking out vintage compilation after vintage compilation. Here though, they've really discovered a rare niche of unmined gold courtesy of Nuphonic's David Hill who acts as selector. As Hill explains "gospel music has often followed trends in secular music" and this album captures 24 attempts of gospel getting on the disco and boogie trains. Highlights include the hiNRG longing of "I Need You", the electro-soul of "Love Is The Message" and the piano & strings frenzy of "Awake O Zion".

Review: Omar has been riding the UK soul train for as long as our charts have been pumping and, the thing is, our boy hasn't put in a dud release to his name. Granted, it's not the sort of house and garage that will please everyone out there, buts it's certainly the creme de la creme of the genre. He's back on Freestyle with this magnificent EP in the company of the mighty Leon Ware, and the duo out in a sublime performance that oozes soul from every angle, a smooth and sexy episode backed by remixes from DJ Jazzy Jeff and Rob Hardt. The Reflex's remix of "Vickys Tune" is a masterful little slice of summer-friendly house music, but Maurice Brown's vocals help to to make "Brainstorm" into a dope hip-hop tune with a little Dilla magic at the core of it. Very nice gear.

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: 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: The Timewarp label are one of this outfits who care more for diversity than they do about specialising in one particular genre. Through artists like Afternoons In Stereo or Afroqben, they've established their place as a label who can offer something way beyond the dance floor format, and into the varied and imperceptible genre we refer to as 'nu-jazz'. Mister T & Lucy Lune Gillespie are pretty much first-timers to the scene, but their debut EP, Retro Respect, suggests these two have been producing some serious music for a while. These six tracks are both a pleasure to the ear, and offer something different with each new verse; "Mental Playthings", for instance, is stuck between jazz-dance and house, while "Retro Respect" itself is a funky, swingy little number the recalls the 50s jazz smoke, and "Blame It On Me" steps away with some tasty little breakbeats. Lovely.

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!

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: 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: 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".

80s Casual - "Fiesta" - (4:27) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
Yuri Petrovski - "True" - (4:55) 98 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Cold Busted is the scene leader when it comes to hip-hop informed instrumentals. This latest release sees two cult producers supply one slick new jam each. The spectaculalry monikerer 80s Casual is first on the stands, rustling up "Fiesta" - which is a rich Balearic shuffle based around some hypnotic classical Spanish guitar samples. Next Yuri Petrovski presents "True" which in theory, with its sampling of Spandau Ballet's pastel -tinged hit of the same name, would be more appropriately attributed to the name 80s Casual - seeing as that was who originally danced to the tune nback in '83. A sunkissed classic nonetheless though.

Review: Mister T just don't give a damn. This mysterious and humorously quirky artist has been dominating our funk charts like a pro over the past few years, and this new EP for Timewarp is no different than his usual bag of quality tricks. Lucy Lune Gillespie features as the lead vocalist on the groovy little number named "The Heart Grows Fonder", which is followed by the boogie-tastic number "Gamma Rays". "The Gospel Way" is a soulful, marching breakbeat attack, while "Funk Ground" breaks out the funk breaks - guitar fuzz and all!
