Soundtrack funk collective Calibro 35 dropped Traditori Di Tutti to great acclaim last year. Now, to keep the heat on, this retro Milan outfit deliver this LP sampler comprising two of the album's sharpest tracks. "Vendetta" sounds like it's from a club scene in a '70s Argento movie with lots of shuffly beats and some seriously far out organ and psyche rock riffs. "You, Filthy Bastards" is a far funkier and less dark affair, with plenty of wah-wah guitar and is actually quite reminiscent of Starsky & Hutch! Looks like this is the album that just keeps on giving.

There's something pleasing about the no-nonsense approach of the Killer Funk Disco crew. Their edits cut straight to the chase, chopping, looping and tweaking the key passages - percussive breaks, grooves and choruses, mainly - of their excellent source material. They're in fine form on this fifth volume in the series, which originally dropped on vinyl a few years back. Variously you'll find a perfectly pitched re-cut of a classic dubwise cover of "Staying Alive" ("Sly & Robbie Disco"), horn-totin', hands-in-the-air disco-funk ("Rescue The Edit"), string-laden low-slung disco ("Is That A Firecracker In Your Pocket Harvey...") and a slap-bass sporting disco singalong ("Mmm, Tiger..."). All killer, no filler.
