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'".

Compilation heavyweights Strictly Breaks are back with more uncovered gems, this time for the third instalment in the series that sources breaks sampled by daisy age hip-hoppers De La Soul. As ever these collections prove that beyond the sample spotting we simply get some great old skool tracks including The Commodores' slightly hippyish groover "Girl I Think The World About You", the Austin Powers-esque swinging 60s jam "The Bottle" by Duke Pearson and the spacey analogue synth dream "After The Dance (instrumental)" by Leon Wear.
