Review: As we've learned in the past the Funk Hunk likes muscle, lots of disco muscle. His edits are never weak. So it's business as usual on Funkier Than That, his latest selection of edits. There are four cuts here to get up and down to. "Funkier Than That" is a snappy, Minneapolis-style majestic funker, "Pushin' On" is perky synth-pop and "Making Love" is fast, sweaty and a thrill a minute. Lastly "YYT Shake (Funk Hunk remix)" is a cool slice of vintage B-Boy hip-hop.

Review: Crown Ruler Records co-founder Jeremy Spellacey is highly regarded within the crate-digging community, primarily for his ability to sniff out copies of obscure - but, naturally, high quality - boogie-era disco records from Africa and the Caribbean. On this fine compilation, Spacetalk has offered the New Zealander the opportunity to showcase some of those finds, alongside a smattering of better-known favourites and more recent cuts (see Mike Fabulous's overlooked modern boogie gem "Wang East"). Predictably, Spellacey has delivered the goods, serving up humid, exotic and loved-up gems galore, including the fluttering brilliance of Stimela's "I Love You", the marimba-laden Balearic boogie of Feladey's "Forest Music" and Devon Russell's impeccable reggae-soul cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Move on Up".

Review: Featurecast flexes hard into the crates right here: digging deep over 20 years of party breaks, he's put together the definitive journey of funk with the refreshing devil may care attitude we've come to expect. His selection excavations are here for all the benefit from... The Wiseguys's lesser-spotted jam "One For The Ladies", Lack Of Afro's horn-melting "The Outsider", Max Sedgley's sugar-sweet "Happy", Flevans' Afrofunk shake-up "12 Apostles" and Featurecast and Aldo Vanucci's 2008 hoe-down stomper "Blue Grassed Devil" are just some are just some of the floor-matured classics amid the 25 cuts on offer here. And that's before we even get to awesome mix. Don't dillydally on this one.

Main Sourced - (8:30) 105 BPM
from $1.93
Review: It's 25 years since the release of Main Source's Breaking Atoms album, one of the finest full-lengths of hip-hop's renowned "golden era". To celebrate this fact, Geordie producer Smoove has put together "Main Sourced", a cut-and-paste tribute that incorporates elements from tracks sampled by the group across the celebrated set, alongside carefully selected rap samples. As you'd expect from a man of his talents and experience, it's brilliantly done, achieving a near perfect balance between the needs of the dancefloor, the dustiness of the original album, and the demands of Steinski style cut-and-paste productions. In other words, it's pretty darn good.

Review: When it comes to making drum and bass that strikes a balance between the needs of DJs and home listeners, few are better than Dominick Martin AKA Calibre. It's for this reason that the album format suits him so well. The Deep, his 12th full-length in total, could well be his best set yet. Jam-packed with effortlessly soulful moments, evocative piano flourishes, rich live instrumentation and yearning vocals, it's a far more expansive and ambitious set than most D&B albums. It also supplements his trademark, club-ready rollers with tracks that look to modern soul, jazz breaks, dub and R&B for inspiration. Throughout, Martin barely puts a foot wrong, delivering a set that more than stands up to repeat listens.

Review: Given his encyclopedic knowledge of music, you'd expect any compilation put together by Bill Brewster to be full of unlikely gems and lesser-known anthems. That's certainly the case with After Dark, the first in a new DJ-focused series from the Late Night Tales camp. From start to finish, Brewster's selections are spot on, from the lowdown, slo-mo disco oddness of Sheffield chanteuse Marti Caine's "Love The Way You Love Me" and wide-eyed, acid-laden kosmiche of Coober Peder University Band's "Moon Plain", to the dirty electrofunk of Zed Bias's "Koolade" (featuring Toddla T, of all people) and mid'80s percussion fest of Martin Kershaw's "Keep On Pokin". If that wasn't enough, Brewster has also unearthed a decent Jamiroquai record. The wonders never cease.

Review: DJ Vadim hails from Russia, is a long-time Londoner and now currently enjoys the good life in Barcelona. All of this travelling makes for good music as creatives love nothing better to soak up new influences and to stir them into the mix. Due in September, the long player Double Sided see Vadim fully collaborate with Katrina Blackstone (they've done bits and pieces before). Here as a teaser they present two cuts from the album, the slow and raw vintage style soul-pop of "Luv 2 Luv" which benefits with Blackstones' reggae-lite warblings. Next is the title track, which features a cool, lo-fi soca rhythm and squelchy electronic groove.

Review: Veteran UK retro breaks duo Skeewiff (aka Alex Rizzo and Elliot Ireland) recently caused a splash with the release of their first album in ages, Skeewiff In Wonderland. Now they're back again, this time with a new, non-LP single. "Coming Home Baby" appears here in three versions: an acapella (or 'Wiffapella") a single edit and the full length version. Out favourite is the latter where you get nearly eight whole minutes of searing DnB beats fuelling a shimmy-tastic 50s/60s-style swing-along. Also included is the Austin Powers-meets-The-Spencer-Davis-Group Hammond heavy romp, "Triumph Stag". Groovy, baby!

Get Down On You - (3:35) 52 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
Review: Last year, Bristol's successful neo funkateers, The Allergies, delivered a strong LP, As We Do Our Thing, on Jalepeno. However rather than rest on their laurels, the pair (aka Moneyshot and Rackabeats) have continued to release new material. "Entitled To That" is their latest non-LP track and it's a blinder! Furious 60s beats stomp ahead with tambourines, claps and raucous female vocals right behind - a super authentic Motown-style jam of Marthe Reeves-proportions. On the digital flipside, "Get Down To You", looks more to the 70s for inspiration, with a tight clavinet and wah-wah guitar-led funk groove that's impossible to resist.

Review: The late Jorge Reyes was a leading figure in Mexican experimental music, and this album recorded with Antonio Zepeda is one of his earliest and most striking works. Originally released in 1986, A La Izquierda Del Colibri is a worldly product of the era in the same way as the work of Jah Wobble and Brian Eno, rich in new wave funk but reaching to a higher plane thanks to all manner of sonic devices. From treated jungle sounds to swooping pads, the whole album feels like an exotic trek through the heat and mystery of Central America, at times leaving the Western world far behind and at other times embracing it. A captivating listen.

from $1.93
Review: A couple of years back, Rafael Top Secret - a selector known for digging deep for inspiration - delivered a tidy re-edit of "Sekele I Like It", a previously little-known Afro-boogie cut by French artist Robert "Bobby" Helms. Copies of the 1980 album it came from, Lay Down, Girl, now go for serious money, prompting this licensed reissue. Helms' brilliant, horn-totin' original is accompanied by another cut from that album, "Feet On The Ground" - a straight-up disco affair - and two new remixes. Baptman and Betino's "Philly Vibe" mix of "Sekele I Like" is a largely instrumental interpretation that includes some killer electric piano solos, with Vas Moody's "Feet On The Ground" remix taking that track in a tightly-wound dub disco direction.

Loaded with an instrumental on the B, this one is guaranteed to sizzle your summer.

Review: Portugal's premier funkateer Mr Bird has sadly been fairly quiet since his long player Lo-Fi Classics (a collaboration with honey-voiced blue-eyed-soul warbler Greg Blackman) dropped back in 2014. However, despite the title of this classic soul LP highlight, the party remains strong courtesy of this new remix package. The mighty Ashley Beedle provides not one, but two mixes - with his "North Street Mix" lowering the BPM and upping the chiming, harmonies and brass section, and his "Stripped Back Mix" losing the beats altogether. If that wasn't' enough fun, further dubs and instrumentals are also supplied too!

Review: German live ensemble, The Bahama Soul Club, recently released their 4th Long Player, Havana '58, where they paid homage to the 'tropical playground' that was Cuba in the 50s - a 'pleasure dome of sensual overload and rum-fuelled abandon' featuring wild showgirls, high stakes gambling and revellers including Marlon Brando, Ernest Hemingway, Frank Sinatra and J.F.K". Now its time for the remixes, and there's 18 of them! Artists as diverse as Smoove, Opopolopo and Postive Flow all contribute by adding funk, house and soul to all the Latin Jazz, Bossa and Boogaloo vibes goin' on.

Review: It was high time for a new instalment of Lego Edits, the new frontrunner in our favourite disco reincarnations, and this is especially true when the tunes in questions are already among our ist of absolute classics! The infamous "African Rhythms", by a certain artist that we can't specify on here, is reworked into a tasty, jazzy sort of stepper carrying a chunky groove full of sweet, kinetic percussion for the dancefloor. The Lego Funk Touch version is reserved for the "Yeah Alright" edit, a more intricate funk nugget taking into account everything from samba through to jazz and even a little bit of that house edge that we all need right about now. Party tools for all!

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: Earlier this year Si 'Bonobo' Green delivered his sixth album, Migration, which was his first full-length since 2013. It features 12 tracks that ruminate on the nature of personal identity and ideas of nationality, The LP includes songs inspired by international styles, one of which, "Bambro Koyo Ganda", has now been elected for release a single in it's own right. A seamless mix between fragile, touchy-feely house beats and traditional vocals courtesy of Innov Gnawa, the track will take you on an exotic emotional Journey. Also included is a new Analog version and an extra treat in the form of the clubbier non-album track, "Samurai".

Review: US spoken word don Rich Medina is usually seen releasing a downtempo strain of hip-hop that branches out into more soulful territories, but BBE have snapped him up to take control of their latest compilation, this being number one in the new Jump 'n' Funk series. Tropical-flavoured funk would be the best way to give you a snapshot of this glorious collection of music, ranging from rare afrobeat to newer, more contemporary broken beat rhythms, but in reality this is simply a wonderful vibe placed under one roof. Inside, you'll find everything from drumming legend Tony Allen, to Fela Kuti, Tweak, Jungle By Night, and plenty more dance-friendly artists. Warmly recommended, and afro comp of the week from us!

Review: Pop soul hero Mike City first rose to prominence back in 2000 by being the man responsible for penning and producing Carl Thomas' #1 hit I Wish. From there he's gone on to create hits for Brandy, Rihanna, Angie Stone and Jamie Foxx and Sunshine Anderson. Here though he steps out into the limelight himself with a solo album, The Feel Good Agenda Vol 1, on Barely Breaking Even. As expected quality is the unifying theme here over the course of 12 star-studded tracks, with highlights including the choppy, cut-up future boogie of "Rock Wit U" (feat Dwele), the warm and soothing "When I Luv" (feat Faith Evans) and the deep electro-boogie of "Been Too Afraid" (feat Teedra Moses).

Review: New Orleans' Grammy nominated Hot 8 Brass Band release their fifth LP. The title of the new album refers to that special moment in a New Orleans parade when the band stops to take a break but keeps noodling with their instruments for the crowd. When they're completely in the moment: they sync up and the magic happens - a new tune is created: On The Spot. It also points to the way the band have had to adapt, learn and live from moment to moment throughout their careers and their lives. A tragic series of events - the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the separate deaths of five band members plus trumpeter Terrell "Burger" Batiste losing his legs in a car crash: these moments have tested these men time and again. Their life-affirming story has been featured in the Spike Lee documentaries When The Levees Broke and The Creek Don't Rise plus David Simon's HBO series Treme. In true Hot 8 style, this album pairs hard hitting, heart-on-sleeve sentiment with party fuelling beats, hooks and grooves; raw funk and charismatic hip hop vocals mix with Big Easy jazz elegance. "We still break down a lot," says bandleader and tuba player Bennie Pete, "but now it's tears of joy. We keep everything in our hearts, but we keep on."

Review: Omar has been riding the UK soul train for as long as our charts have been pumping and, the thing is, our boy hasn't put in a dud release to his name. Granted, it's not the sort of house and garage that will please everyone out there, buts it's certainly the creme de la creme of the genre. He's back on Freestyle with this magnificent EP in the company of the mighty Leon Ware, and the duo out in a sublime performance that oozes soul from every angle, a smooth and sexy episode backed by remixes from DJ Jazzy Jeff and Rob Hardt. The Reflex's remix of "Vickys Tune" is a masterful little slice of summer-friendly house music, but Maurice Brown's vocals help to to make "Brainstorm" into a dope hip-hop tune with a little Dilla magic at the core of it. Very nice gear.

Review: Black cotton: the racy yin to white mink's raunchy yang, Freshly Squeezed squeeze into their slinkiest number and lay down five more unabashed versions on classic speak easy standards. Highlights include the insane energy and juicy funk of Wolfgang & Louie's "Puttin' On The Ritz", the floor-burning D&B mischief of Mista Trick's "Swinging All Day" and the sudden switch into an almost rocky stomp on Pisk's "One Steady Roll". Teases and pleasers with nothing but authentic instrumentation and preemo prohibition party vibes.

Guarapera - (5:37) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
Review: The latest in a string of excellent GAMM releases, Swedish edit/remix maestro Jazzy Jens has a ball with The Undisputed Truth's progressive early-70s soul classic "Smiling Faces Sometimes" on "Undisputed". Speeding it up a little and adding just the right amount of extra percussion and delay to certain vocal phrases, he keeps the original's vibe nicely in tact whilst also making it a DJ's delight. Backing "Undisputed" is "Guarapera", a nicely arranged romp through some vintage Latin rumba and modest disco beats.

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
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".

from $1.93
Review: SMBD aka Simbad is back on GAMM again after a longer break and said to be planning a few EPs with seasonal themes for the label. The first EP as you might expect delivers three tasteful season influenced reworks and remixes which the label claims will 'be your perfect DJ weapons over the Summer months.' If the Afro broken beat groove of Bootsy's "Rather Be With You" (Alphabets Heaven X SMBD remix) won't do it for you, or the super soulful Colonel Abrams tribute "Table 42" (SMBD Tribute) does not grab your attention, guaranteed that the stunning 4/4 rework with Mike Lowrey of Jazzy Jeff's Summer classic "Summertime" has the potential to be a huge tune in the coming months.

Review: Bristolian drum and bass legend and mainstay of Roni Size's Full Cycle imprint DJ Die is back. With a bit of help from Rodney P plus Indigo Kid on the mic for some hip-hop flavour on "Holes In The Building" which has some fairly thought provoking subject matter being told over a ska influenced jam which is super blunted goodness. There's an instrumental version and an accapella for your added convenience.
