Review: If life teaches you anything it's to expect the unexpected. Here the mighty re-edit label Katakana deliver their 42nd instalment of scapel jobs. However, this time, rather than have a specific producer curate an EP, they've shaken up the formula and delivered a compilation of edits. There's a whopping 24 reworks to enjoy too, many thrills and spills, but our favourites include Morlack's explosive drum-lead MJ cover, "Don't Stop", Mister Vagz' corny 60s mash-up "Love Me Venus" and Dim Zach & Deem's baggy rework of the Happy Monday's sublime "Loose Fit".

Review: Dead set on 'funky vibes' Hotmood hail from Mexico (the new, nu-disco capital?) and here they appear on Ganbatte with a new four track gem-filled package. The Country People EP sees them do what they do best - delve deep into the 70s to find the finest slo-mo boogie tunes to edit. The title track is a stomping, clavinet march -along, whilst "I Wanna Funk" sees B.T. Express get stripped down and extended. Elsewhere the squelchy Usisilike gets housed up and "Movin' II (Furious Edit)" is a gloriously uplifting disco chant-along.

Review: Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".

Review: KS French and Mr Given Raw are like two peas in a pod. A disco-shaped pod. Here they join forces again, both providing both solo tracks and a joint collaboration too. Label boss KS French plonks a platform show on the dancefloor first with the tight James Brown-sampling funk of "Still On the Case". Then MGR takes over for two sizzlers - the catchy soul-pop lament "Beggin You" and the psychedelic soul stomp of "Funky Mama". Finally the titans clash on the phased disco-boogie joy of "Never Give You Up". Good times.

As We Do Our Thing - (4:04) 130 BPM
from $1.96
Review: The Allergies are duo (DJ Moneyshot and Rackabeat) who hail from Bristol. However unlike many a fellow Bristolian, these guys don't produce bone-rattling bass productions, instead they opt for the 'feel-good, energetic ear candy' of mashed-up funk, soul, disco and breaks. Their album, As We Do Our Thing, is out now, and here we have two tracks culled from it. First up, "Love's Supposed To Be" fuses twangy, Fatboy Slim/Wiseguys-style '90s big beat with a soaring soul vocal, whilst on the digital flipside the album's title track is all about loose '60s R&B/soul loops - pure party (guilty) pleasures!

Review: Funky Breaks, Ghetto Funk, Nu Funk, Glitch Funk, Nu Skool & Old Skool Breaks: you name it, they got it! London's Funk Fusion are back with Fused Funk Volume 16, which is a whopper of a compilation; 17 servings of block rockin' beats which will suit any occasion.. almost! Some of the highlights on here (and there's quite a few) are: "More Diggity" by Jay Tip; no guesses what this is a remix of (hint: Blackstreet!) but there's no hints for which rock'n roll classic got mashed up with jump-up drum and bass on Phat Bangers Club's "Wah Wah Everybody". Elsewhere, Sticky Icky's "I Wanna Hold You" takes the timeless classic by The Beatles and injects it with some tough breaks.

Review: 'Australia's hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio', Cookin' On 3 Burners, are on the eve of marking their 20th anniversary. They've been quiet since smash 2014 album Blind Bet, but here they begin the lead up to said milestone with a re-release of 2009 iTunes RnB Chart number one, 'This Girl'. The track was recently reworked into a pumping house hit thanks to Kungs, but here we get the more melancholic original. Boasting a slow, vintage 1960s soul sound and a vocal tour de force from Kylie Auldist, this tear-jerking version is still guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.

Review: The Rev's back! Parisian edit magician serves up four revised soul excursions for modern audiences to experience the second time around and in true style. On the first side he takes the knife to a couple of Gladys Knight classics, namely the feel-good "Don't Make Me Run Away" and the uplifting "Love Gives You The Power". 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: Greek disco producer Timewarp teams up with an anonymous pal from funk blog extraordinaire, The Zuzu Club, for this compilation that's exclusively about 'great and fresh' new music. Although there's no theme they do look across the water to the Caribbean for some inspiration on the likes of the laid back reggae lament of "Theory Of Revolution" and the smooth dancehall grooves of "Baby Got Me Good". Elsewhere we encounter vintage electro-swing on Pavlov's "Moving Next Door", retro lounge-rock on "Jesu" By Loopez and even some good old big beat on "Jungle Boogie" by Chinese Man.

Review: "Sugar" lay unissued for many years, before finally seeing the light of day on BBE's 2003 set of previously unheard Roy Ayers' recordings, Virgin Ubiquity. It was later remixed by Dave Lee under his familiar Joey Negro pseudonym, and here gets the multi-track edit treatment from French scalpel specialist The Reflex. He typically does a good job of building energy and excitement throughout the vocal version's seven-minute duration, showcasing different instruments (vibraphone, horns, bass, guitars) and the track's alternating male and female vocals, in the manner of Tom Moulton or Walter Gibbons. The accompanying instrumental is tasty, too, but lacks a little of the vocal revision's soulful charm.

Rewards - (4:59) 60 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: Kylie Auldist is a heavyweight Aussie soul singer whose powerful lungs have graced many a hit over the years. Now, with the help of Lance Ferguson and Graeme Pogson, she's recorded a solo album, Family Tree, and this here EP features a selection of tracks from it. Gone is the raw funk vibes of old with Auldist opting for a bright and synthetic mid-'80s pop-soul sound instead. It largely works too with the Donna Allen-esque "Sensational", the chrome and carpet grooves of "Family Tree" and the late-'70s US funk style of "Rewards" as standouts.

Review: Here they are at it again, fusing, twisting and sampling all the hits, obscurities and bangers you've come to love over the years; be they hip hop, electro, pop, funk or rock. Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!

Review: The bubbly JalapeNo imprint has been the main home to Kraak & Smaak's house-minded output over the years - although a few outings on the Spinnin' labels certainly help to cement their status as veritable nu-disco specialists - and this extensive new album Juicy Fruit feels like a natural place for them to be right now. We're talking about thirteen classy disco-leaning house gems here, all of them perfectly suitable for dancefloor domination and Saturday evening seduction. This is for the dancers, the swingers and party starters; it feels like the sort of ticket you don't get too often, an energetic and fun collection of great dance SONGS. Indulge.

Review: The latest installment of the epic Dusty Fingers series of original funk, soundtrack, library and rock breaks contains some seriously fascinating material from the archives. Take the blustering "Confunktion" by D Richmond fro example, or the melodic instrumental baroque funk of Jack Kayborn's "Music People", the incredible jazz drums of "Type A to E" by Hiro Tsunoda and even a cover of Bob James' breakbeat classic "Take Me To The Mardi Gras", done in a psyched-out way by The Spotnicks.

Review: A London based leftfield funker producer, Mr Mamode excels in filling dancefloors with evocative quirky grooves and breathy vocals. Here he drops this seven-track mini-LP for the esteemed Five Easy Pieces and it's a winner. Highlights include the sleazy clavinet-driven grind of "In This Case", the stoned and broken nu-soul of "Like I Do" and the bonkers percussive freakout "JumpWorkShakeMov".

Review: Boulder-based badman Griz delivers his fourth album and it's - without argument - his finest work to date. A firing future funk document that's steeped in instrumentation and obese, floor-focussed dynamics and grooves so powerful they could bring an end to all comas, his organic signature is matched toe-to-toe with bold muscular production and anti-formulaic subversion. Highlights include the authentic 70s blacksploitation funk strutter "Get Down", the smoky, lazer-rasing Pretty Lights-esque "It's All Good" and the wholesome classic hip-hop jam "For The Love" with Talib Kweli. Say it loudly, say it proudly... Griz has gone next level on this one.

Make Love To Your Mind - (7:22) 127 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Stockholm-based Seegweed has been part of the extended GAMM family for some time, having delivered the first of three white-hot re-edit releases way back in 2011. Even so, this latest batch of tasty reworks marks his first material for two years. As usual, he hits the spot from the word go, delivering a scorching, floor-friendly extension of Aretha Franklin's high octane soul killer "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" that's notable for its' reverential treatment of the original source material. There's a little more soft house hustle about the smoldering, electric-piano heavy soul-jazz strut of "Save My Love", while closer "Make Love To Your Mind" turns a Bill Withers standard into a sweet, heart-felt anthem that brilliantly increases in intensity midway through via some heavy additional percussion.

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: A DJ since the '80s, Argentinian by way of London Fabiolous Barker has appeared previously on Midnight Riot, Masterworks and Funkfusion and presents us with some quality disco edits. "Sticky Party (ReVamp 2016)" is a funky excursion to soul heaven that you'll never forget, while it's back to the disco on "The Boogie" which reworks Uncle Louie's "Full-Tilt Boogie" from 1979. "Into The Disco Scene" is the kind of recycled disco loops that Thomas Bangalter would be proud of while "The Crown" mashes up a few disco nuggets actually, but absolutely to perfection; try and guess which ones... but don't forget to dance!

Review: High-grade schmokin' disco is on the menu here on the latest Katakana Edits installment, courtesy of Fabiolous Barker and Amir Perry. The former flexes his re-edit muscle over three beguiling tracks: the frisky funk fizz of the housey "Sing", the sultry low-slung "NightGrooving" and the punchy Flash & The Pan 80s rework "Why D'Ya Run Away". Perry mans the decks for the final tunes - the diva-funk strutter "Watch The Dub" which comes in both standard and extended versions.
