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!

from $1.49
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.

Sept-Amber - (5:57) 63 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
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: Sometimes certain compilations need a bit of breathing space between their instalments. This is very much the case with Strictly Breaks' rare soul and funk series, which only sees a new volume appear every now and then. This fourth foray into the far reaches of funk uncovers a host of new gems including Aron Collins' raunchy "You Hit The Spot", the gritty and fierce Blaxploitation funk of "Black Morning" by Ellerine Harding and the drum sample heaven of Silver, Platinum, Gold's chrome-plated disco classic "Comin Up".

from $1.49
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.

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.

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.

Perhaps he just went on holiday in some exotic far-flung dimension, but he's back now, all guns blazing. Brazil Breakdown Part 2 features three spicy cuts of feverish retro Latin funk, all boasting irresistible beach party grooves and seductively catchy vocals.

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.

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!

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.

from $1.49
Review: Celebrating a year of successful weekly edit campaigns, Parisian discophile Young Pulse legitimises his dealings with GAMM. This is the first of a series of collections and every track is a dancefloor-tweaked gem. Average White Band's "Work To Do" gets a slick groove extension, a very young Michael Jackson gets a cheeky arrangement polish and added beat muscle on "I Wanna Be Where You Are" and Minnie Ripperton's "Baby, This Love I Have" gets a complete strip-and-rebuild. We conclude with Leon Ware's "Why I Came To California" where Pulse ensures the latent funk in the bass and groove are brought fully for the fore. Stunning.

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.

Review: Early '90s hip-hop act Brand Nubian courted much controversy over their allegedly extremist views and sometimes homophobic lyrics. What often gets lost in all this fuss is the matter of the music, an expertly crafted melange of deft samples. Here Strictly Breaks pick apart those samples and provide us with 28 of the best vintage cuts used as source material by the band. Highlights include the cheery anthem "Sing A Happy Song", James Brown's highly electable "Funky President" and Kool & The Gang's immortal "Jungle Boogie".

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.

New faces Bruno Borlone and Boogie Mike lay down a Spanish rap funk jam "I Like The Party", DJ Axe pays homage to Nice & Smooth and Curtis Blow, ElectroGorilla reach for the lazers with the euphoric breakbeat flexor "Funky Beast" and Rory Hoy and Saxon Scoundrels get busy on a classic rock and swashbuckling drum vibe with "Bouncin & Rockin". Finally The Beat Selecta boldly fixes up the classic Batman theme tune on a D&B with - quite cleverly - Hijack's "Badman Is Robbin" rap originally sampled by DJ Supreme. Holy bootlegs!

Finally we get lively with a muscular big beat jam that features the distinctive vocal tones of DJ Kool Marva Whitney's evergreen horn hook from "Unwind Yourself". Show us a sign!

Review: Strictly Breaks are masters in both indentifying, and compiling, the various old tunes used as source material for hip-hop classics. Although Tribe Vibes volumes one and three are already available, volume two has yet to be released digitally until now. As expected, it's a thoroughly enjoyable rummage through lost gems and bona fide classics. There are 30 tracks here including Freda Payne's torch soul lament "We've Got To Find A Way", the sinuous muscular funk of Slave's "Son Of Slide" and Funkadelic's totally spaced out synth jam "Tales Of Kid Futuristic".

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".

Review: Here uber-compilers Strictly Breaks present their third collection of songs as sampled by classic hip hop act, A Tribe Called Quest. These collections serve as both testament to the taste and crate digging skills of the '90s act and, as well, just a great collection of songs to dig, ya dig? Highlights include the hip-cat modernist jazz of Cannonball Adderley's "Steam Drill", the spittle-flecked verbosity of Last Poets' "Time", the tragically beautiful "Midnight Cowboy" theme and Stevie Wonder's anthem to beat all anthems, "Sir Duke". Dope.

Review: Slowly dipping his toe back into the water of single releases, we now have yet another two new "Reworks" from the London soul boy who had, up to recently, been silent for months. He's continuing to maintain the quality too, with 'Wake Up" being a hypnotically accelerated basement funk fever-jam and "First Time Around" being eight minutes of uber-slick, hazy glamour funk.
