Mmmm?. Tiger Can You Switch Over To The Golf Channel Please (5 Under Par edit) - (4:12) 115 BPM
from $1.49
Review: There's something pleasing about the no-nonsense approach of the Killer Funk Disco crew. Their edits cut straight to the chase, chopping, looping and tweaking the key passages - percussive breaks, grooves and choruses, mainly - of their excellent source material. They're in fine form on this fifth volume in the series, which originally dropped on vinyl a few years back. Variously you'll find a perfectly pitched re-cut of a classic dubwise cover of "Staying Alive" ("Sly & Robbie Disco"), horn-totin', hands-in-the-air disco-funk ("Rescue The Edit"), string-laden low-slung disco ("Is That A Firecracker In Your Pocket Harvey...") and a slap-bass sporting disco singalong ("Mmm, Tiger..."). All killer, no filler.

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!

Que Pasa/Nebulosa by Turbojazz on Gamm Cue Track
Nebulosa - (5:12) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Jam Master
Review: Italian producer Turbojazz has already found homeground success as part of the Futureground collective and now he's being introduced to a wider audience thanks to established nu-funk label GAMM. Here we get two tracks of low-slung grooves, organic, authentic and totally vintage sounding - "Que Pasa" is built around an incessant guitar lick, hazy beats and soaring Euro vocals. "Nebulosa" on the other hand is a jazzier affair, less retro and more based around loungey Latin loops. We think we'll be hearing more from this guy.

Katakana Edits Vol 15 by Voodoocuts on Katakana Edits Cue Track
Get Up Brother - (5:24) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The ever-reliable Katakana Edits crew returns, this time with a quartet of goodtime funk reworks from Berlin-based edit fiend Voodoocuts. James Brown gets a going over on "Voodoosexmachine", a flute-laden re-cut of the Godfather of Funk's best-known tune. Another familiar favourite - check the snaking sax line, as sampled by The 45 King on B-Boy classic "The 900 Number" - is given a dancefloor touch-up on "Blow Ya Woopie", while "Get Up Brother" turns a cover version of Bob Marley's "Get Up, Stand Up" into a deep, bassy, fluid house jam. Finally, there's more bumpin' rare funk business on the ludicrously bottom-heavy "Stay Excited".

Dirty by Jayl Funk on Honkey Phonk Cue Track
Jayl Funk - "Dirty" - (3:44) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: There's funk and then there's Phonk. This here EP is most certainly the latter, with Honkey Phonk deliver two raucous slices of delirious party-fuelled phonk. "Party People" pairs good time brass, bass and beats with some old skool hip hop MCing. "Dirty" is a low-slung joint with serious Stevie Wonder vibes.

Review: Eyal Goldman has been notching up a whole bunch of feelgood re-edits under the guise of Funk Sinatra. 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.

from $1.49
Review: Nope, "Music For Adverts" is not a long lost '70s Eno LP, but the new album by neo soul producer Adam Gibbons, aka Lack Of Afro. Kicking off with raucous opener "Freedom" (featuring the vocals of Jack Tyson Charles, son of Craig), we are taken on a 12-track journey into the vintage soul of Mr Gibbons. Highlights include the funky '70s grind (is that Ron Burgundy on flute?) of "One For The Trouble", the 4/4 disco funker (with a sprinkling of hip-hop) "Brown Sugar" and menacing Latin jam of "No Guts, No Glory". Classy.

Why I Came 2 California - (4:48) 109 BPM
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.

from $1.49
Review: Stand back! The fourth instalment of this heavyweight re-edit series is coming through. This time, Blood, Sweat & Tears' soul staple Spinning Wheel gets gently tweaked and extended as "Wheel Spin", the sassy funk-rock of Gone Is The Thrill" is actually BB King with a break beat and things wind up in party mode with the low down disco groove of "Got Me Burning". Good time music for all.

from $1.49
Review: Killer Funk Disco present a double whammy here, with both an eponymous label and artist debut. First up, don't be fooled by the title, this ain't Odyssey, it's a deft chop-up of Richie Haven's rare version of "Going Back To my Roots". "Indecision" meanwhile is lovely, rolling, hazy sensuous funk, Sister Sledge's "Thinking About You" gets a gentle re-jiggle and an instrumental cut of Luther Vandross' majestic "Never Too Much" lets the oft overlooked music shine for once.

from $1.49
Review: Already a favourite of Craig Charles, David Hanke's Renegades Of Jazz follow up last month's Moo Juice with the new stormer, "Gonna Break This Chain". Eschewing his more jazzier influences, this time Hanke delivers two slices of live and true vintage funk and soul - the title track being a searing anthem of the "Hold On I'm Comin" variety, and "Gimmie Some" fusing old school soul and gospel vibes with some cool, laid back hip hop.

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 Katakana edit express thunders on with their 11th installment of party breaks. This time the overwhelming vibe is of retro soul, jazz and swing. The latter is handled with a Latin influence on "I'll Be A God Man" and "Lovely TV" by DJ Clairvo, while the amazingly-named DJ Oli Garch provides a breaky, swingy version of jazz standard "Summertime. Lastly Timewrap opts for some Cuban-tinged grooves on "Miami", as well as a cheeky retweak of The Velvelettes' Motown classic "He Was Really Saying Something".

Played by: Quasamodo
Review: Although he's previously dropped albums for the likes of Freestyle, "Big Picture" cements the new bond between Quasamodo and Jalapeno following a tester EP release last year. Boosted by the positive reaction to the EP, he's back and he's got both the Q Orchestra and long time vocal collaborator Thaliah covering his back. It's an explosive team, delivering 13 old school funk bombs, some of which are even peppered by the occasional rap!

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: Londoner Aroop Roy describes himself as an "artist and producer of many dimensions". In the past we've tended to call him a 'bearded soul boy". Anyway one thing that's true is that this guy sure knows how to blend Afro, soul, jazz and funk. This is his first release since album Nomadic Soul a few years ago and it sees the man tackle two of his favourite Brazilian tunes in his inimitable style. More please!

Review: Bobby Marin was a leading figure in the 1960s Latin Boogaloo New York movement, producing the likes of Joe Cuba and Eddie Palmieri as well fronting his own Latin Blues Band (as recently sampled by Christina Aguilera). Now, hold on to your hats folks, because, after four years in the making, professional compiler Dean Rudland can proudly present "an explosive collection of (northern) soul, deep funk and Latin jazz tunes from Spanish Harlem" all sourced from Bobby Marin's immaculately tailored back-catalogue. Trust us, it's been worth the wait.

Renegades Of Jazz & SEM - "Shocking Venus" (feat Q) - (3:48) 133 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Dusty Tonez
Review: For his latest 'digital seven inch', David Hanke's Renegades of Jazz group have accepted the assignment of getting breaky. "Assignment B-Boy" blends Dick Tracey-era big band brass with chunky tough big beats. Meanwhile ROJ are joined by SEM for the retro 60s diva soul organ wig out of "Shocking Venus" (surely a nod to Shocking Blue?). Good times ahoy!

When The Funk Rains Down by The Boogie Man on Imagenes Cue Track
When The Funk Rains Down (Lowrider version) - (4:11) 119 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: This is the debut single by The Boogie Man, the North London 'project' of Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel, previously of Los Charly's Orchestra. Their aim is to 'embrace the legacy of the Boogie Funk...blending with the London touch' and that, they do with a lot of panache. "When The Funk Rains Down" is a slice of raw, unadulterated '70s style boogie with excellent trumpets. Lowrider also steps up to deliver his discofied version; a cheeky, claps 'n' cowbells jam.

Let It Be Me - (4:31) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Splendidly monikered French duo Last Bongo In Paris (aka Cleon & Jazzy Pidjay) have arrived on EDR packing an impressive re-edit of early Odyssey album track "Battened Ships". A hippy-funk classic, the song, a vehicle for the soaring vocals of the legendary Royce Jones, keeps the jovial flutes and yearning vibes but speeds things up a little, layering some extra breaky breaks and adding bass by Patchworks. Meanwhile "Let It Be Me" reveals the duo's penchant for Latin-tinged vintage soul.

Review: Since launching at the tail end of the noughties, Sofrito label has tickled the fancy of a wide range of DJs, with releases regularly topping the Juno sales charts. It's no fluke. By joining the dots between the past and the present and offering listeners formidable, floor-flaying material tailor-made for open-minded dancefloors, Sofrito has picked up a reputation as a must-buy label - a notoriously tricky feat in these days of falling sales and digital overload. Here, they return to Strut for a second compilation. Whereas the first, 2011's Tropical Discotheque, had a distinct theme, Sofrito International Soundclash takes a more wide-ranging approach. The results are predictably enjoyable and deliciously heavy. Opening with the classic Soca of Lord Shorty & Vibrations International, the album moves through world music styles past and present at a furious rate. The whole thing is gloriously upbeat and very, very memorable. Aside from the enthusiasts that gather at Sofrito parties in London and Paris, where many of these tracks are dancefloor staples, few will know much about many of these styles of music, let alone the artists who make them. But that's the point: through International Soundclash, the Sofrito crew are opening our eyes and ears to brilliant sounds we never knew existed. For that reason alone, this comes highly recommended.

Here we get two instalments of "After The Dance" - one with lush brass and strings, and a rolling discofied version. Also included is the uplifting vocal bouncer "Go Away Dream". Slick stuff.

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.

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: 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: Often, a lot of questionable feats and skills are retrospectively foisted upon music legends by the nerdier music fans amongst us. Classic DJs like Ron Hardy are regularly claimed to have seamlessly mixed the one copy of the same record for five hours with his toenail, whilst stood upside down and blindfolded in the booth. The sleeves of "School Yard Breaks" do nothing to change this, but for the most part we'll never really know what is truth and what is myth. However we do know what they played and here are another 25 b-boy breaks to play 'air mix toe' to.

Review: What with the robots' recent Grammy wins, "Get Lucky" continues to rule and inspire from here to Timbuktu. Now cheeky Frenchmen Minimatic applies the tune to another big musical force right now: electro-swing. In fairness though, "Get Swingy" largely eschews the electro in favour of a more rootsy and authentically jazzy romp through last summer's indestructible anthem. If you're looking for something less obvious try the slammin' soulful house of "Gonna Swing You" or even better, their breaky spaced out cover of Ram Jam's Black Betty.

Review: We've been waiting a LONG time for this one! Miguel Mantovani, Archerio Mantovani and Kengo San have been teasing and pleasing with their tongue-in-cheek funk on wax and on stage for years... We always knew when an album drops it would be big. And just look at the line-up - Kurtis Blow, Abdominal, Mica Paris, Tenor Fly, Omar, KT Tunstall are all collaborating across this 15 track funk explosion. With licks from James Brown endorsed CBs band and the perfect balance of tight riddims and humour, "Yo Bonita" rocks in every sense. Essential.

Review: If previous releases by Funk Sinatra (he's really called Eyal Goldman) didn't get the message across, then this latest one will hammer it home: this guy is all about the party. Gently rejigged and still under the four minute mark, Rose Royce's "Car Wash" is now even more of a party slayer than ever before. Meanwhile we get trippier on Santana's "Jingo", which now gets over an extra minute more of high courtesy of Mr Sinatra. Buy the man a drink!

Review: It's 35 years since hip hop's 'big bang' moment, where a steady flow of indie rap records eventually led to mainstream hits by Sugarhill Gang and Kurtis Blow. 1979-83 was an exciting time for the fledgling new genre and here veteran London DJ Sean P compiles a selection of some of the long lost gems from that time. Largely hailing from New York state and often appropriating popular dance cuts of the time, it's a fascinating listen indeed. Highlights include the dubby funk of "Boom", the sleazy hip-disco of "The Golden Rule" and the slo-mo electro funk of "To The Max".

from $1.49
Review: Despite delivering a smattering of original nu-disco productions over the years, producer Disco Tech is probably most famous for his sneaky but relatively faithful reworks of classic funk, soul and disco cuts. Here he returns to the re-edit field, reworking more sweet soul and funk jams. "Waiting On You" delivers a slick, floor-friendly take on Al Green, while "Devil's Work" subtly tweaks a midtempo funk-soul gem. More revolutionary is "You Got The Stuff", a formidably loopy chugger that ekes maximum joy out of a delicious groove. Elsewhere, check the suitably slow and dewy-eyed "Inside Is Love" and "Take Me As I Am".

Review: German DJ/producer Quincy Jointz has been strutting his funky stuff behind the decks since 2003. He's struck up a close bond with Greece's Timewarp in particular, so much so in fact that he's back with his fourth mix album for them! "Lime Sorbet Vol IV" sees the guy condense 18 tracks into an hour-long mix, which is quite a journey indeed. The individual tracks are also included here in full, highlights of which include the Junkie XL-ish "Pray", the bouncy electro-pop meets retro rap of "Summertime (remix)" and the electro-funk-breaks of "Do You Want More Ah".
