Review: The prolific and award-winning Diesler has chosen his own Here & Now label to release his latest, a compilation of "music from the modern soul underground". With a constant schedule of DJ gigs, podcasts and production duties, Diesler is constantly having to source fresh new sounds and there's plenty of them here. Touching on funk, soul, disco and Latin vibes, highlights here include Huw's acoustic shimmer-strum, "Reflex", B Visable's eccentric electro-pop-meets-RnB gem "Light Shapes" and the reggae-meets Afro carnival jam that is the Yukicito remix of 'Mirage' by 'legendary New York party man' Nickodemus.

Katakana Edits Vol 22 by Lee Zamah on Katakana Edits Cue Track

Katakana Edits Vol 22 by Lee Zamah on Katakana Edits Cue Track
Ginga (feat Trotter) - (6:37) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Lee Zamah has appeared on stargazing re-edit label Katakana before, but only on various artist EPs. Here on Volume 22, he gets to blossom with two of his reworks featured. "The Cator Groove" is fiery, tight and urgent '70s funk-rock, whilst "Ginga" is more emotional, with soulful loops and plenty of brass action. Overall a well-rounded EP.

Higher Ground - (6:33) 125 BPM
Re Visions Vol 3: The Stevie Edition by The Reflex on Gamm Cue Track
Sir Duke - (6:39) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Gamm is an established re-edit and mash-up label that's managed to repeatedly dig up new-old gems since the early Noughties. Having previously tackled Marvin Gaye's back catalogue, The Reflex return with a new EP and this time they've gone Stevie Wonder crazy; providing re-workings of three of the great man's tunes. First up is "I Wish", a nine minute elaboration of the one people think is called 'Sneakin' Out The Back Door...' and one which does a lot to reverse the damage done by Will Smith on his "Wild Wild West" tune. "Higher Ground" is teased out and into a more DJ-friendly format and finally things on high with "Sir Duke" (the one everyone thinks is called 'You Can Feel It All Over'), which gets embellished with a subtle 4/4 beat and big, splashy and celebratory cymbals.

To Rack & Ruin Vol 4 by Out Of The Basement on To Rack & Ruin Cue Track
Take Me With You - (6:37) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
To Rack & Ruin Vol 4 by Out Of The Basement on To Rack & Ruin Cue Track
Brother's Dub - (5:22) 91 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Out of the Basement are Steve Leggat and James Ellis, both players in Manchester's music scene. Now they've hooked up with the El Diablo Social Club boys to finally deliver two much sought after edits. Both these tunes have been floating around in various forms for a while, but now they've been spruced up for a 'proper' release. "Take Me With You" layers an old soul vocal over new punk-funky live instrumentation for a slick head nodder. "Brother's Dub" meanwhile, is a slinky slo-mo edit of the Brothers Johnson cover of Shuggie Otis anthem "Strawberry Letter 23".

Sister by Montefroid on Cosmic Sumo Recordings Cue Track
Sister (Andrea Rucci mix) - (6:58) 60 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Despite the Japanese theme, Sumo Records actually hail from sunny Italy, a country with its own unique relationship with disco. Here Montefroid have their "Sister" track presented in a variety of mixes from the nu-disco spectrum. Highlights include the hazy and bassy Afro mix, the deep fried funk of Smell Seventy's taut grinder and Andrea Rucci's warm and snazzy disco-house rework.

Highlights include the panther-like nocturnal rhythms of Maleka's "Hey You!", Green Streets' almost Balearic, breezy coastline funker, "Putting It Together", and DJ Buzzword's slow grind clap along, "Eat".

Sept-Amber - (5:57) 63 BPM
from $1.49
Review: A lot of re-edit producers seem to be reappearing following a fairly long hibernation period. It can't be a coincidence that the sun's out too - as re-edits are good times music. The Reflex are finally back and there'll be some mighty good times soundtracked by "Bongle Joogie", an almost seven-minute muscled up version of Kool And the Gang's monster party jam. Meanwhile, Earth, Wind & Fire's timeless hit "September" gets tweaked into a floaty cloud of party joy, with some pretty impressive acapella breaks too.

Review: Funk fantastic Dave Gerrard is back where he belongs - with Chopshop, the re-edit label run by the one and only DJ Butcher. Rip More Funk is all about the fun and contains four reworks of fairly familiar party funk favourites with the likes of James Brown appearing on "Like A Funk Mashine" alongside the more obscure disco chant-a-long "Do It (I like To) and the elastic boogie of "Keep Your Body Workin'".

Review: Freshly Squeezed is known for its many electro-swing releases, but it recently unveiled its new big thing - electro blues. To further pursue the concept, the first compilation arrived along with a new club night in tow - aiming to create a 21st century juke joint experience where vintage rhythm & blues, gospel and old time sounds get a contemporary once over. The albums do the same and here we get 24 more sizzling cuts of this new sound.

Review: Steven Moove (aka Smoove) is back on his own Wack label, doing what he does best - providing serious party fuel in the shape of break-fuelled dancefloor gems. On the Wack Dynamite EP we get a mini album of crowd-pleasing party ammunition, including the breaky Bob Marley rework "De La Marley", the shimmering Michael Jackson disco rejig "Music's Taking Over" and the heavy hitting Eye Of The Tiger/LL Cool J mash up, "Rocky's Knockout". Good times are here!

Re Visions Vol 1 by The Reflex on Gamm Cue Track
I Feel Good - (6:44) 74 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's a mark of the quality of Mad Mats' A&R skills that GAMM has managed to notch up almost a decade of releases without really resorting to releasing the sort of stinky cheese that usually plagues bootleg and mash-up imprints. This EP from newcomers The Reflex continues that record, offering two excellent, funk-laden bangers that get just the right balance between anthemic pomp and heads-down stomp. First up is "ABC", a stretched-out re-take of The Jackson 5's most famous hit that boasts a completely different (but very good) musical backing. "I Feel Good" is even better, turning a loose funk classic into a tight dancefloor bumper thanks to snappy new beats.

Review: The Tramp crew pride themselves on their crate digging skills, however here they've even surprised themselves, providing a collection of tunes rarer than hen's teeth and all inspired by the discovery of Warmth feat. Don McCaslin's sublime "Praise Poems". This has lead to a whole compilation of songs that, they insist, need to be absorbed in complete tranquility. Boasting 16 obscurities never before released on CD or digital, highlights include the soulful jazz of Jorge Darden's "Alone Again", Bold Breed's remarkable "Let Me Down Easy" and the funkier soul of Cookie Thomas. Fingers crossed for a second installment.

Review: In honour of the 15th birthday of his acclaimed weekly radio show, Beats In Space, Tim Sweeney has decided to have a bit of a mix-up. This isn't any-old mix-up, though. While the second disc of this excellent collection focuses on Beats In Space classics - gathering together familiar favourites from Justin Van Der Volgen, Rocha, Tensnaske and Naum Gabo, amongst others - it's the first disc that shines. It features a thrillingly eclectic and party-friendly mix almost entirely made up of previously unreleased material. Given Sweeney's credentials, it's perhaps no surprise to find some real gems here, including some boogie revivalism from Azari & III, a guttural rework of Edwin Starr by Eric Duncan, and the wide-eyed rave revivalism of Junior Fairplay.

Review: The staff at Barely Breaking Even are a tireless lot, constantly digging and scouring for more of the 'real music for real people' that they have earned their reputation through supporting. But it gets hard to keep on top things which is why this annual tradition has evolved in which they all sit down, consume lots of mulled wine and throw plastic cups at each other before they eventually agree on what was the most essential cuts from the year's schedule. Here are the 15 tracks from 2014 that made the final cut - the creme de la creme so to speak- so sit back and enjoy many wonders from the likes of Mr Bird, Shawn Lee, DJ Vadim and more.

from $1.49
Review: A destination label for fans of classy disco and funk edits, GAMM introduce The Reflex to their roster with these new additions to their "ReVisions" series. Marvin Gaye's "Ain't No Mountain" gets a subtle boost to the beats and bottom end, while on a similar Northern Soul vibe, The Reflex treats "Rehab" with a new set of drums and a few added strings and stiff guitar chanks. Best of all, the beatless instrumental of Marvin's seminal "What's Going On" is reconnected with the original acapella in a superbly tasteful mixdown that shows off every nuance of that incredible recording.

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!

Free Circle by Kut Funk on Sound Exhibitions Cue Track
Dinner Funk - (5:10) 100 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Tighter than a martinet's time table: Sardinian supremos Kut Funk lay down two new originals for Sound Exhibitions. "Free Cycles" is a slippery loop-based jam driven by a juicy bass lick, steady rim-shots, occasional blasts of soaking synths, warm organs and crisp-but- dreamy guitars. "Dinner Funk" is slightly slower in tempo and heavier in rhythm. Loaded with jazzy angularities and Booker T weight organs, it tastes as good the name suggests. Tuck in.

Review: Thanks to his BBC 6Music show, self-styled "complete package" - comic, actor, radio presenter, DJ and stand-up poet - Craig Charles has become the UK's best-known funk and soul enthusiast. It's perhaps unsurprising, then, that his annual Funk & Soul Club compilations are extremely popular. This third collection is every bit as potent as predecessors, featuring as it does a riotous mix of heavy funk, horn-totin' soul revivalism, dancefloor-friendly funk breaks (Skeewiff and Stephen Gray), cheeky brass band workouts (Hot 8 Brass Band's famous cover of "Sexual Healing") and a dash of smooth soul (the effortless Omar). With all bases covered and some killer material, it should be essential listening for all those of a soul and funk persuasion.
