Why Wait For Tomorrow (feat Pete Simpson - Al Kent Disco Madness version - Record Store Day edit) - (8:18) 120 BPM
Played by: Dave Allison, Hot Toddy, Headzsquare, The Funk Hunters, Al Kent, Vladislav Moustache Love, Random Soul, Monkey Boots
Review: Here's a downloadable version of Z Records' limited edition Record Store Day vinyl remix package of four tracks by label boss Joey Negro and his Sunburst Band. Sizzling electro-funk lead track "Taste The Groove" is given a low-slung, chugging 'Walk The Night'-style disco makeover by Hot Toddy. "Why Wait For Tomorrow" is teased out into up to 11 minutes of vintage disco ecstasy (in over three different mixes!) by Al Kent. "Definition Of Luv" also gets some super camp New York housey lovin' from Sean McCabe.

Review: Quick! Look up! Is there a glitterball twirling around majestically above your head? No? Then you're doing this summer wrong. This collection will definitely get you on the right track; curated by Germany's longest standing disco house imprint, each of these cuts will give you that all important hip-swaying, unashamed funky disco fix that you desperately require. From Roger Williams' pumping updated of Gusto's "Disco's Revenge" to Funky Star's super-polished string-slammed cover of Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way", Disco Galaxy have put together a superb collection that will befit almost any hour on the White Isle.

Review: Stylo G enters 3 Beat territory with his latest bundle of dancehall delight and hip-swaying ganja riddims! "Soundbowy" comes in two forms, the first with the man's own vicious and infectious lyrics riding all over the rhythm and the second as a bouncing, dread-ready instrumental. Di Genius remixes the original by adding in some much needed house sensibility and once again leaving us with another instrumental to scratch away until da mornin' come! Sigma's re-interpretation is somewhat breakbeat-leaning thanks to its brain-shattering d&b muscle, whilst Ross Couch literally transforms the track into a seductive club house stepper!

Review: When Joey Negro dons his Akabu guise, you know he's about to lay down a timeless house groove. He did it with "Sax My Bitch Up", he did it with "Life Is So Strange", and, with the help of Alex Mills' dulcet tones, he's doing it with this, too. Rolling with a classic analogue bassline and deep dreamy chords, the "Strip Mix" is an instant hip-wiggler with serious 'zone-out' potential while the "Warehouse Mix" adds more texture and a hollow harmony to the bass a la Robin S. Everybody wants something...and your dancefloor wants to hear this!

Review: Following a host of releases with his Sunburst Band, Z Records boss Joey Negro is back to perhaps what's he's best known for: spinning light and soulful disco house. This second in the series kicks off with the handbaggy "Smile" by Mistura and take in thumping diva business "Every Day Of The Week", sublime techy house "Life Is So Strange", unsullied authentic disco "Power To The People", acid-jazz on "Better Things To Come" and the phaser-heavy, electro-boogie of "Begun To Love".

Review: Serious party vibes abound as El Salvadorian Itchy Bastards add three new funk nuggets to their armoury. "Make Money" takes Busta to trumpet school, "Lemme Talk" looks to Clinton for some world dominance (George, not Bill) and "Roundacorna" is a deeper, jacking affair with a lolloping slap-bass riff and some lovely organ and wukka-wukka guitar twangs on the main hook.

Review: Tru Thoughts' extended family now stretches all the way to Rio with this very wise new signing. Drumagick have been around for over 15 years now, adding their Latin magic to house, drum & bass and funk templates. Here we find them with carnival-o-meter set at 11 with four fantastic compositions. "Maracutu" is brash brass medley that doesn't sound far off Gregory circa "Tropical Soundclash", "Rio Drums" is a deeper, tribal affair with an off-beat wobble bass thrown in, "Sunday Morning" is a jazzier, silkier affair while "Feelings" flips the switch on a lush rolling D&B tip with washy, soothing chords and emotive pianos.

Review: Oli Stewart dons his Casbah 73 guise again and returns to Lovemonk with a second EP of soul-flecked goodness. His style - a peculiar but highly attractive mix of deep house, classic soul, broken beat, jazz and wide-eyed Balearica - guarantees a selection of tracks that are far from predictable. Opener "If You're Leaving (Part 1 & 2)" is a great example, moving from shuffling, soul-flecked 4/4 shuffler to sparse broken beat bomb in under 7 minutes. Elsewhere, "All Night Long" turns a forgotten soul gem into an atmospheric chunk of baggy deepness, "Too Cool to be Careless" sounds like the results of a smoky, late night studio jam session, and "I Want A Lot" is a particularly tasty chunk of disco-soul/deep house fusion.

Review: Always at the forefront of the best house and techno, Toolroom call on Slovenian ace Umek to helm the latest in their series of Toolroom Knights mixes. Tracks from Funkagenda, Hertz, Gary Beck, Alex Kenji are among the 36 prime cuts on offer (available as seperate tracks or as two full-length mixes), with special shouts going out to Just'n Toko's minimal thriller "Let Me Dig", Christian Smith's brilliant old-school burner "The Price Of Freedom" and Umek's own "Novi Sad".

Review: Ever since Serbian producer Gramophonedzie burst onto the scene with his blends of sturdy house and goodtime swing, the Balkan nation has become a hotbed for electro-swing. The latest Serbian talent to impress is Uros Petkovic, who hear repeats his countryman's formula with a goodtime fusion of parping horns, swinging beats and effortless vocals (from guest chanteuse Sofia Knezevic). The loose and groovy original is joined by a duo of remixes by Nikola Vujicic and Grant Lazlo. It's the latter's low slung, funk-laden swing-rock remix that most impresses. The EP also features "Get Up", another cheeky chunk of hip-wigglin' electro-swing goodness.

Review: With dance music's annual Winter Music Conference in Miami fast approaching, Toolroom present a selection of tunes to impress the gathered industry boffins, clubbers and well-watered music journalists. Oh, and DJs who fancy getting the label's next "big tunes" well in advance of their regular release. At 47 tracks deep, with three DJ mixes thrown in for good measure, it's a bit of a beast, but there's more than enough to excite those who want fresh, recent and forthcoming bangers. All the big players are present - Deadmau5, Huxley, Maya Jane Coles, Duke Dumont, Mark Knight etc - as well as Toolroom favourites such as Hoxton Whores, Dirty South and Nicky Romero. Basically, if you're after big tunes to please big rooms, you should give it a whirl.
