Review: As you can imagine, Breakbeat Paradise Recordings specializes in the sort of house music that's carried by chunky blockade of beats and bass, all rounded off by a distinctive electro swing. This is the second chapter of the Big Fat Mama Beats series and, once again, the imprint have gone to extreme measures to secure a supremely effective line-up for both them and us. There's not a dull moment in here, or anything remotely beatless, so be sure to cop yourself this super-charged, super floor-minded collection of new-school breaks for the masses.

from $1.92
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: 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.

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.

Whole Lotta Love (Back To The Box edit) - (14:08) 113 BPM
from $1.92
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!

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.92
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".

Yeah Alright (Lego Funk Touch) - (6:16) 105 BPM
from $1.92
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!

Get Down On You - (3:35) 52 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.92
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.

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".

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: 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.

Now it's lesser-known 1974 follow-up The Return Of The Incredible Bongo Band, finally gets re-released and will expand minds and dancefloors again with its 11 tracks of totally out-there percussion-based grooves.

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!

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: Here we have the debut album from self-confessed 'sunshine pop' musician Lucas Arruda. Now 30, Lucas spent his formative years playing in hard rock bands but was converted to soul and jazz by a deadly seductress (a vintage Fender Rhodes actually) in his early 20s. This impressive long-planned long player features a cornucopia of styles and moods, including the lazy 70s soul of opener "Physis", the gentle Rio-funk of "Tamba (Pt1), the smooth vocals of "Who's That Lady?" and the lilting bossa nova of "Alma Nova".

Review: More regularly found on the Pig Balls label, Pulpfusion here releases Funk Never Sleeps via BPR. 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".

Review: Jun Kamoda's last outing - April 2016's The Clay EP on Mister Saturday Night - boasted a pair of full-throttle workouts that variously drew influence from slamming basement house, rubbery disco and percussive African rhythms. There's a similar feel to this fine follow-up on Black Acre. On "Blind Disco", he does a fine job of joining the dots between fuzzy Afro-house and skewed disco, layering sampled chants and additional percussion hits on top of a wickedly wayward groove. Arguably even better is the cowbell-driven, Idjut Boys style low-slung disco-funk madness of "Ramen Funk", while "Savanna On The Palm" offers a slightly dreamier and deeper voyage into left-of-centre Afro-house territory with distinctive Detroit techno overtones. In other words, it's another killer EP from the talented Japanese producer.

Review: Joey Negro focuses entirely on the Brit Funk movement of the 1970s and 80s on his latest mix compilation. The twenty-three tracks provide an extensive history on the genre and contain a number of extremely rare and very sought after crate digging collectables. Avoiding the huge hits of the scene which appear on retrospectives the world over, Negro unleashes a host of the genre's underground club hits that remained only on the local scene, many of which were re-edited by Negro exclusively for this compilation. Do not miss this.

Review: Two new excursions in funk from the excellent Gamm label, who drop Reviva Alias Estephe & Vulzor's epic reworking of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" on this split single this week. Cleverly using outtakes, instrumental versions and accapellas of the original, the team craft a fresh remake - and an absolutely huge break down and build half way in too. "Dreaming On The Riviera" is another fine edit job, making for a breezy disco-funk jam that DJs will be pining for after just a few bars.

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: 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: Having 'done their thing' so successfully last year with their debut album, Moneyshot and Rackabeats stride into 2017 with their targets set on another LP. The trip starts here with the seasonally-timed hip-swaying party jam. "Love That I'm In" purrs with sultry vocals, flexed with rippled lyricism from long-time compadre Andy Cooper and laid back funk guitar/bass groove. Silky, sunny, catchy.. The Allergies continue to deliver some serious gold.

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: 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.

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.

Review: Daytoner is a mysterious producer who resides in the far west of England and is obsessed with perfecting his vision of 60s-tinged sunshine music from his studio shed. This album features 15 tracks of warm, familiar, feel-good tunes, the highlights of which include the euphoric R&B-soul of "Little Soul", the retro bossa nova of "Benz Bargin Bin Bossa", the gentle "From The Root To The Fruit", the Motown-esque "Treat Me" and "Tell The World" which quite frankly sounds like the theme to retro TV show, Taxi!

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.
