Kicking Up Dust EP by The Allergies on Jalapeno Cue Track
Hold It - (3:41) 122 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Initially appearing mainly on compilation EPs, The Allergies have recently graduated to starring on their own eponymous releases. Here they team up with the respected Jalepeno for sizzling four tracker, Kicking Up The Dust. It's an extremely varied affair, providing both different styles for different tastes or, simply just different cuts for different parties - "God Walked Down" is breaky, gospel-tinged soul, "Be With You" is low-slung and loose disco-house, meanwhile "Flip The Scripture" is rockified West Coast groovy hip-hop and "Hold It" goes straight back to a world of 70s cop car chases. Cool!

Kinda Groovy - (4:39) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Pater party starter Father Funk shows us who's the daddy with four more slinky, sample-soaked nu-funk jams. Ranging from the ballsy swing of "Jungle Strut" to the more salubrious, well-oiled slinks and winks of "Start Movin'", once again FF's EP lives up to its title in every way... Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

from $1.49
Played by: Luis Machuca, Bakerman
Review: Nothing cheap about the complier of the latest installment of Katakana Edits series. Cheapedits has lined up a sizzling selection of party-orientated scalpel jobs, and gives The Supremes a thorough early 90s hip-house makeover on "Stopin". Inxs get a sleazy big beat facelift on "Tonight", and it's all about the vintage 60s shuffle on "Blacktel". "Buyer" provides some poppy ska and "Qui Qui" wraps things up with closing-time-at-a-tequila-bar vibe.

Review: Leading London funk enthusiasts Jalapeno bring the heat with another annual collection. Uniting recent highlights with killer exclusives, it's a detailed document that sheds light on the spicy imprint's many directions... Flexing from the gutsy soul of Aldo Vanucci's instant 60s "What Happened" and Ephemerals' emotional white-flag-waving "You Made Us Change" to booty-shaking boogie such as Basement Freaks' "Ain't Got Nobody" and Supasoul's "Funky Hot Grits" via Kraak & Smaak's lush, lolloping synth-laden cruiser "Drunken Master", it's a fitting testament to one of UK dance music's most authentic, dedicated imprints. Get funky.

Shake It - (6:09) 115 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Serious edit heat from the young Parisian who's always on the Pulse: Three well known funk soul classics, Rhyze's "Relax & Enjoy" gets an upbeat, roof-raising treatment with full emphasis on the instantly distinctive groove. Spinners' "It's A Shame" enjoys a sun-splashed Brazilian treatment while GQ's "Shake" gets a turbo-charged shake-up that makes it more floor friendly than a thick shag carpet. And that's friendly. Get to know.

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.

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.

What's Going On - (4:27) 103 BPM
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: Genre-blurring Washington D.C. outfit Fort Knox Five have been holed up in the studio for ages working on the follow-up to their previous LP, Radio Free D.C., which was released back in 2008. It's been so long in fact that these ten tracks really herald a new era for the band rather than simply being a follow up. That said, their familiar signature is very much still present, resulting in a feel good fusion of hip-hop, funk and soul that's destined to be the soundtrack of many folks's summer.

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: Digital Wax Productions is almost exclusively the home of DJ Leonidas/Alien Disco Sugar (some conspiracy theorists even have him pegged as the label's owner), but here we see a new addition to the roster - newcomer Tuxedo Jack. Leonidas has been hyping Jack's 'club friendly funk/break edits' online and we can now hear why - there are five jams included here, including the wah-wah-heavy retro loops of "Kool Funk NT", the block-rockin breaks of "Sexy Pot" and the soulful, slow groover "All Right Now". Dancefloors everywhere, beware!

Review: In the old days, the cross-cultural, cross-genre fusions of Rio de Janeiro-based DJ LK would have been called "beats and breaks". As it is, his wonderfully sunny fusions of samba, bossa nova, jazz-funk, breakbeat and hip-hop could fall between the cracks. That would be a crying shame, as Misturada is as enjoyable a breakbeat-orientated album as you'll hear this year. While there are moments when big basslines and tough drums take over (see the dutty "Nabby Riddim"), for the most part it's a loveably loose, languid and laidback affair, deftly produced by someone who clearly knows what they're doing.

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.

Review: Here we have two vintage funk giants, Joey Negro and Sean P, join forces to present a collection of 'badass funk classics from the disco boogie era'. Individually these guys are authorities on the genre, but combined they're positively the definitive voice. We've a whopping 24 choice cuts to wade through, highlights including the breaks-packed percussive gem "Clap Song", the saucy cosmic funk of "Come On And Rock" and the suggestive aerobic bass workout "Gigolette". An essential vintage compilation if ever we saw one!

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!

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: Here's a challenge to all you crate diggers out there, according to Jazzman's DJ Fryer they always dig deeper! The results show in this excellent double LPs-worth of vintage prime cuts that sound surprisingly dance-floor friendly rather than quaint. Highlights include the intense funk assault of "Wake Up", the classy, shimmering "Teacherman", the emotional "Lost In The Crowd", the puny "Rollercoaster" and Ashley Beedle's re-edit of "Keep Her Happy".

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: Given his popularity amongst the soulful cognoscenti, it's little surprise to find globetrotting Belgian DJ LeFtO - a man renowned for the depth and diversity of his record collection - curating the latest Southport Weekender mix. His mix - included on this digital edition as a bonus cut - is superb, though it's the variety and quality of the unmixed tracks that makes this a must-have for open-minded DJs. Shimmering, bass-heavy futurism and heady deep house sits side by side with samba, African rhythms, jungle-tempo jazz (one of Peshay's recent outings for Tru Thoughts), twinkling Latin house, future R&B and calypso (the excellent Armals Trinidad Cavaliers). Throughout, there's not a duffer in sight. In a word: essential.

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'".

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.

from $1.49
Review: The honour of fronting the latest installment of Katakana's Edits series has been bestowed on the Bergerac of funk himself, Jersey's Zemerald (aka Joseph Kavanagh). Without missing a beat he rises to the challenge and delivers five expertly sliced reworks, with some of our faves including "Soul Girl" a sassy, stompin' retort to the more famous Soul Man, the raw R&B of "Candy" and the guilty pleasures of "Wicked Drummer", a cheeky update of the classic Funky Drummer break.

Review: Normally one for the grand gesture (his last album boasted 27 tracks!), master of the gently nefarious art of the mash-up, Morlack, comes back down to earth to deliver a mere four edited disco gems for Katakana. As usual, the production quality of his sample-fuelled jiggery is second to none, with the slow and elastic funk of smoocher "The Dude", the slap bass twitcher "Morning", the stormin' electro-funk of "Dusic" and the raw, cowbell bustin' hoe-down of "Spinnin'" proving to be dancefloor devourers one and all.

Review: More vintage sampled classics from the crew who do it best, Strictly Breaks. This time round they're concentrating on obscure '70s soul joints that all ended up being sampled left, right and centre. As always these albums work simply as solid collections of good songs too, highlights including the Otis Redding-style Southern RnB jam of "I Tried It And I Liked It", the brassy cop show swagger of "Butter Nut" and the amazingly-titled "Fondle Rock".

Review: Twenty-eight strictly funk beauties get assembled with a lot of love on this new collection which boasts choice cuts by the likes of The Ohio Players, Kool and The Gang, Georgie Fame, Tom Scott and Cannonball Adderley. Plenty of the songs here have been scooped up and sampled by the Beasties, Pete Rock, DJ Shadow and more, yet they remain absolutely unique and engrossing in their own right - from the almost Broadway-esque "On The Move" by The Impressions to Eddie Bo's northern soul stomp.

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: With Italy's Sound Exhibitions giving us four funk flamers from French fella Funk Reverse, this is a truly continental offering. Despite the Euro origins though, these productions hark back to early 80s America and its streetwise electronic funk. The title track is a vintage Adidas-tapping groover with extra breaks, "Super Free" sees big beat underline a low down and dirty slap bass jam. "Go Funk" is all about block rockin' drum rolls and scratching, whilst "Hello" breaks the trend and opts for a contemporary, Latin-tinged groove.
