Review: In 1976 the unstoppable music monster that is disco finally broke out across New York City, turning it into the coolest place on earth, probably before and certainly since. It was the first time that DJs ventured into the studio to create jams aimed directly at their dancefloors. Now Bare Breaking even have painstakingly assembled about 30 of the most essential tunes from this time. What you'll encounter here are the ground breaking edits and remixes by some of the most important figures of the period including Walter Gibbons, Tom Savarese, Jellybean Benitez and John Luongo. Priceless.

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.85
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".

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: When you consider the sheer quality and breadth of their output, there really isn't another label like Wah Wah 45s. Adam Schrimshire's pioneering imprint reaches its 18th birthday this year, and he's kicking off celebrations straight away with the launch of this new collection featuring a whopping 33 remixes of mighty back catalogue tunes. Highlights include the bleepy, warped hip-hop of "Ooh (J-Felix remix)" by Paper Tiger, the doomy, the brooding witch-soul of Goth-Trad's remix of Lea Lea's "Black Or White" and Ashley Beedle's deep and silky smooth "Return To The Factory" remix of "Glory" by Stac. Happy birthday fellas!

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: Craig Charles is many things to many people - to some he's Dave Lister in Red Dwarf, to others he is the guy with class A's and jazz mags in the back of a taxi and to others he's one of the UK's finest soul DJs. Here we find him in the latter role, thankfully, introducing us to his fourth annual Funk & Soul Club collection. This time he presents 19 soulful gems. Highlights include the Chaka Khan-style "Family Tree" by Kylie Auldist, The Traffic's bombastic and brassy cover of "White Lines" and the effervescent 1960s soul homage "Next Time" by The Tibbs.

Yuri Petrovski - "True" - (4:55) 98 BPM
from $1.85
Review: Cold Busted is the scene leader when it comes to hip-hop informed instrumentals. This latest release sees two cult producers supply one slick new jam each. The spectaculalry monikerer 80s Casual is first on the stands, rustling up "Fiesta" - which is a rich Balearic shuffle based around some hypnotic classical Spanish guitar samples. Next Yuri Petrovski presents "True" which in theory, with its sampling of Spandau Ballet's pastel -tinged hit of the same name, would be more appropriately attributed to the name 80s Casual - seeing as that was who originally danced to the tune nback in '83. A sunkissed classic nonetheless though.

Review: We pity the fool who don't' dig the jams of this retro funk producer from Greece. Here he returns with a new record in a new year, but on an old label - Cold Busted. The album, The Return Of The Classic, boasts 12 new cuts to sink your teeth into, all of which cover the jazzy hip-hop that he's know for, highlights including the swaggering clavinet-lead bluesy funk of "Break My Back", the staccato breaky rock of "Put The Needle On" and the brassy tight funk of ""View From" and the title track's heavy wah-wah head nodding vibes.

Review: Massive boogie joint from 1982, Frazelle's "Today Is The Day" packs the same punch it did 35 years ago; stomping beats, salubrious guitars, widescreen production and gutsy vocals from Ken Frazelle himself. Powerful in the lyrical, technical and party dynamics this is a huge dancefloor record... This reissue is long overdue. You know what to do.

BUY
Jody & John - (2:53) 111 BPM
from $1.85
Review: Now this is what you call a hot damn funk record right here. The legendary Nathan Bartell released this absolute scorcher entitled "Top Going Up Going Down" back in 1975 and is what you could call a good and proper digger's delight. You can trust German powerhouse Tramp (run by Tobias Kirmayer) to bring the revival as always; these guys specializing in rare soul and funk reissues. Second offering "Jody & John" undeniably takes its cues from the godfather himself James Brown and his orchestra, but wow: this one's an absolutely explosive tribute if we do say so ourselves. Hailing from Ashburn, Georgia. Bartell started out with Eddie & the Cascades in the '60s. In 1991 Bartell was hospitalised with a lung ailment and while recovering became born again, vowing never again to sing R&B music. He instead formed a Gospel group called Nathan Bartell & Reality and still performs in Southern Georgia.

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: The most Reverend P is continuing the good lord of re-edit's work, delivering rare funk and soul to new believers. This time round, "Brown Baby" by Diana Ross - culled from her famous Touch Me In the Morning album - gets gently tweaked into ten minutes of exotic funk bliss. On the digital flip however, things liven up with the shimmering diva funk of "Emotions". Praise be!

Review: Joey Negro's Z Records have a remarkable knack for knocking out vintage compilation after vintage compilation. Here though, they've really discovered a rare niche of unmined gold courtesy of Nuphonic's David Hill who acts as selector. As Hill explains "gospel music has often followed trends in secular music" and this album captures 24 attempts of gospel getting on the disco and boogie trains. Highlights include the hiNRG longing of "I Need You", the electro-soul of "Love Is The Message" and the piano & strings frenzy of "Awake O Zion".

Review: The series is the result of house legend Joey Negro's admiration for all the semi anonymous vinyl junkies that he has encountered on his own vinyl quests. Following the success of the Red Greg-compiled first instalment, we now have veteran radio broadcaster and soul aficionado Paul Phillips delivering his selection of long-lost classics. It's a veritable feast of rare disco releases (25 in all!), highlights of which include the glossy Philly sounds of State Department's "Slow Love", the Chic-isms of Pike's "Good Feelings", the digital electro-funk of Midnight Energy's "Saving Of My Love" and the sublime synth-soul of Ron Richardson's "Ooh Wee Babe".

Review: There will no doubt be much debate about the identity of the "hyped" editor behind GAMM's latest missive - the 'L' in his or her new moniker is, apparently, a clue - but it's the quality of the edits on show that matters most. Opener "Not Easy", a dubbed-out, chopped-up chunk of disco-funk sweetness full of meandering horn lines, rubber electric bass and woozy synths, is arguably the pick of the bunch, though the loopy, dewy-eyed soul-jazz attack that is "Dues Paid Fast/How I Like" is also rather good. Those looking for jazzier dancefloor flavours should also check "Jazz in Italics", a high-octane jazz-dance re-edit full of fluttering flute lines, sweaty drumming and fluid piano solos.

Review: Although he's enjoyed covert missions for other labels like Royal Soul and Kraak, Stephane "Leon" Voituret can usually be found on Greece's mighty Timewarp label. Here he returns to the label he calls home with a vaguely James Bond-ish themed long player. There seven new tunes, should you wish to accept them, and don't worry - they won't self-destruct after you've played them. Oh no -they'll just keep delivering the disco action. Highlights include the ravey 60s psyche-out of the title track, the Austin Powers meets Man From UNCLE riff-ola of "Get On The Boat" and the bhangra-meets-garage-rock of "Sexy Toy".

Review: Mister T just don't give a damn. This mysterious and humorously quirky artist has been dominating our funk charts like a pro over the past few years, and this new EP for Timewarp is no different than his usual bag of quality tricks. Lucy Lune Gillespie features as the lead vocalist on the groovy little number named "The Heart Grows Fonder", which is followed by the boogie-tastic number "Gamma Rays". "The Gospel Way" is a soulful, marching breakbeat attack, while "Funk Ground" breaks out the funk breaks - guitar fuzz and all!

Review: Original pressings have been previously spotted passing hands for well over L1000: Big Apple Band's 1976 deep funk classic has been rarer than hen's teeth for most of its 41 year life. Its sought-after status accelerated by Keb Darge for last 15 or so years - that and the fact it's an out-and-out soul-stirring, honey-vocalled, low and slow funk burner - AOTN have finally unleashed it in it full length for all of us. And we should all be eternally grateful.

Review: Swindle's latest jam is a total homage to the chrome and carpet dancefloors of 1980s. No one's being conned here though as there is nothing but pure love of the Minneapolis sound with this here EP including a homage to the mighty Purple One. There are four tracks in all with the title tracks being a fresh update on the early Rick James funk blueprint and "Sympathy" could be a smoochy Wendy & Lisa grind from 1987. Elsewhere the warped nu-funk "Saturns Returns" and "New Life" sounds like a stoned Maxwell tryin' out some g-funk shizzle.

Review: Wherever it's made, disco is exotic, sumptuous and sexy. However when it's made somewhere that actually is exotic, sumptuous and sexy, well, then the sparks really fly! Brazil and disco have always been fiery lovers, and here we are presented with three tantric gems from that part of the world. "Relax" provides smooth, loungey vibes complete with strong vocal harmonies and cocktail effect atmospheres, while "Ripa Na Xulips" follows with a perkier, almost Italo-disco, synth-funk vibe. Finally "Labirinto" is slightly schmaltzy Casio-led crooner (think early '80s Latin soap theme).

Review: Strut have a strong record in delivering excellent, thoroughly researched compilations, and this is one of them. This album collates the best from the vaults of KPM's public library music collection - music made by expert musicians but never intended to be publically available. Of course everyone from Jay-Z to Doom have sampled these previously hard to find gems, but now we can all enjoy the flute-disco whimsy of Alan Parker's "Unlimited Love", the carnival freakout of Barry Morgan & Ray Cooper's "Samba Street" and the very familiar loungey jazz of Francis Coppieter's "Cross Talk".

Review: Freestyle might be a label that puts out high-grade rare shizzle, but it's also a label that likes to tease. The sampler for this fine third installment of the Black Feeling series came out what seems like years ago (ok, it was August, but still). Anyway the wait is finally over and here we now have all 12 rare deep cuts for our listening pleasure. Some of the many highlights include the foxy 70s flute and guitar duel "The Bump", the hazy, retro funk cloudsurfer "Rotation" and the frisky piano jam "Buckingham Palace".

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.

Review: The clue is in the title here as Brighton-based funk label Jalepeno have rounded up fifteen of the best soul sister cuts from their mighty catalogue. Boasting a mix of old and new, and spanning quite a few different styles too, this compilation couldn't have come soon enough. Some of the many highlights featured include the powerful and bluesy soul-bearing opener, "Reckoning" by Iro FitzRoy, the candy floss tones of Berenice Van Leer on the 80s-tastic "My Mind' Made Up" by Kraak & Smaak and the muscular harmonies of Farina Miss on Featurecast's "Ego Tripping".

Review: The first ever Athens of the North 12" is a real pearler, presenting the unreleased full length mix of Symbol 8's classic disco burner "I Thought You Wanted To Dance." The track was originally pressed on 7" back in 1978, split down the middle with one part on each side, but it's a track that was made for the full 12" format and is done so here on a Full Midtown Mix. Charlie Adams versatile vocal flipping into falsetto with ease while the band holds the solid groove is a special thing. On the flip-side is a Shock Version of "I Thought You Wanted To Dance," which surfaced later and sounds very different, sitting pretty alongside a personal DJ Fryer favourite "Call Me". Essential as always.
