Sept-Amber - (5:57) 63 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Played by: Jamie Fatneck
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: Croatian musician-turned-DJ (turned DJ-musician) Vladimir Sivc (aka Funky Destination) is back, this time on Cold Busted, with the Gonna Give Ya Something To Funk On EP. Combining live instruments with an ear for the dancefloor, he presents us with six sizzlers, all with a retro feel. Highlights include reggae-rock hybrid opener "Brothers & Sisters This Sound Run Town", the Long Train Running-esque loops of "In My Soul" and the vintage funky drummer, Acid Jazz vibes of "Roll On You".

Review: It seems that Timewarp's rare funk compilations are like buses: you wait ages then three arrive at once. Well, not quite - the second instalment in this series arrived two years ago, precisely half the time between that and the first one. So by our calculations the next one should arrive in a year's time. That gives us just enough time to fully absorb all 31 bangers featured here, including the backbeat swagger of "Ghetto Drunk", the shimmering '70s glamour of "Soul Sugar" and the lush, luxury disco of Timewarp's own remix of "Afrofunk".

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.

Take Me With You - (6:37) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
To Rack & Ruin Vol 4 by Out Of The Basement on To Rack & Ruin Cue Track
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".

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.

Re Visions Vol 3: The Stevie Edition by The Reflex on Gamm Cue Track
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.

Got Me Burning - (7:08) 107 BPM
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.

Review: It's party o'clock round the Replay offices right about now with label boss DJ Friction (aka Frico) celebrating his imprint's tenth anniversary. A decade in the music game is no mean feat, and listening through the 13 tracks selected here you can hear how it's the quality of the edits that's got them where they are now. Highlights include the hazy scratchy take on "It's A Family Affair", the peaks and troughs rearrangement of "Is It All Over My Face" and the dreamy Italo disco of "It's Alright". Here's to the next ten years!

Review: Interesting timing for this Brazilian/Latin edits EP to arrive, what with the World Cup controversy and all. What can we say? They're better at making music than playing football. Well, certainly as evidenced here anyway as we get four boss nova classics gently tweaked and strengthened making for contemporary sounding loungey retro vibes. Ole!

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: 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: What would we all do without Strictly Breaks, eh? Well, we'd all be spending much, much longer hours in dank basements digging for records for one thing. This compilation label tirelessly collects songs with classic breaks as used by many artists over time, with their albums working both as a reference source and as just good albums of classic tunes. Highlights here include Grace Jones' otherworldly tropicalia of "My Jamaican Guy", the raw and evocative free jazz of John Klemmer's "Free Soul" and the hazy grooves of Roy Ayers' ever-seductive "Searching".

Review: The first installment of Late Night Tales' After Dark was that rarest of things: a DJ mix that retained a smoky sense of early morning, home listening atmosphere while retaining an open-minded focus on the dancefloor. This follow-up - once again compiled and mixed by Bill Brewster - offers more of the same. Musically it's pleasingly varied, moving from the string-drenched downtempo beauty of Typesun's "Last One Home", to the heady Balearic rock of General Lee, via Justus Kohnke, the soulful post-bruk smoothness of As One, and the sprightly analogue electronics of Emperor Machine's remix of Paqua's "Late Train". There's also a bunch of previously unreleased tunes to enjoy, including killer contributions from the Mang Dynasty (AKA Ray Mang), The Gino Fontaine (Chicken Lips man Andrew Meecham) and - most surprising of all - The Grid and Robert Fripp.

There quite literally is something on here for everyone.

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: LA's Cold Busted have been putting out some pretty sizzling records since opening its doors in 2008, or as label boss Derrick Daisey has it, they 'have created a lifestyle music experience orbiting around his rarefied palette and iconic vintage-vibing artwork and a thriving community of innovative musicians". Who's to argue? Not us when we absorbed the 27 new releases and exclusives on offer on "Bust Free 16". Highlights include the spacey synth trip "Pow Plastic", the romantic trip-hop of "Amour" and the deep, soulful and housey loops of "On The Run".

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.

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: 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".
