Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

Dirty Stories - (7:57) 121 BPM

Review: French legend Ludovic Llorca is back under the Art Of Tones guise for the always impressive Local Talk. Acid soul funk? You bet! Take a listen to I "Just Can't (Get Over It)" and you'll believe there is such a thing. On the flip, the smooth and soulful groove continues on "Dirty Stories" which has an undeniably French touch about it, with good use wonky synths, emotive strings and SP1200 style vocal cut ups. Deepness in the vein of Pepe Braddock or Chateau Flight.

Lovebirds - "Feel The Bern" (Talkbox edit) - (6:59) 116 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Stee Downes and Lovebirds' are old pals, and first joined forces for a 12" on Winding Road Records five years ago. Their joint effort on this fine EP, "Love's Like Dancing" is something of a cheery, mood-enhancing treat. A slick vocal number that should suit both disco and house floors, it sounds like classic Blackjoy fused with Lovebirds' usual brand of colourful deep house positivity. Crazy P man Jim Baron dons his now familiar Ron Basejam guise on the remix, delivering a bouncy nu-disco/deep house fusion. Lovebirds goes solo on the woozy, Rhodes-laden deep house haziness of "Feel The Bern", while the accompanying Talkbox Edit adds woozy, robotic vocals into the mix whilst retaining the track's original feel and structure.

Review: Despite hailing from modern day Norway, Lux Experience's heart remains firmly in the USA during the heady days of the 1970s. Nothing wrong with that as nothing really tops the thrill of the original disco explosion during that wild decade. Here he unearths four more long gems from that time and retweaks them for contemporary dancefloors. "Street Disco" is and accelerated proto-hiHRG opener, "Your Luv" begins as classic French Touch-style diva loops before expanding into more stripped backed boogie and "Freak Mouse" is a bass driven chant-along. Lastly "Prance With Me" wraps things up with some seriously elastic party vibes.

Review: Having previously plied their trade on ManMakeMusic, Christian Piers and Leon Vynehall have been persuaded to bring their Laszlo Dancehall project to Wolf Music. Happily, this first collaborative effort since the tail end of 2013 is every bit as essential as its' three predecessors. They begin with the baggy deep house grooves, stretched-out chords and bustling bass of the hypnotic "Tide In", before adding booming sub-bass and twinkling keys to the jazzy, Andres style swing of "Channel". "Pelagos" is a little bolder percussively, but still revolves around organic, jammed-out keys (not to mention some subtle disco drum samples), while "Tide Out" offers a thrilling, everything-but-the-kitchen sink take on the EP's opening track.

Review: Tico Torres is officially the drummer of Bon Jovi. However it appears that in his downtime he likes to produce underground dance music. Here he teams up with Audaz boss Alkalino for a short, sharp two-track single. The latter rocks up first to deliver "Beware Of The Dog", a super cool, sultry tech-house sizzler with echoes of Good Life and the kind of ominous vocal samples found in early rave. Torres meanwhile, delivers a more wholesome retro jam, "Truly", which delivers a swinging '60s groove complete with Hammond organs.

Review: On 2014's The Roundup, Heist Recordings family members remixed leading label releases from the previous 12 months. It was such a success that Detroit Swindle has decided to repeat the exercise, with similarly positive results. Across the five tracks, you'll find a groovy, clavinet-and-Rhodes heavy loop jam (Brame & Hamo's remix of Fouk's "Lefty's Bar"), some boogie-flavoured, soulful deep house haziness (Fouk reworking Brame & Hamo), a dash of broken deep house funk (Detroit Swindle's take on Nachtbraker's "You're Out Of Your Element"), and a wonderful combination of undulating breakbeat-house rhythms and eyes-closed musical touches (Nactbraker re-wiring M Ono's "Delaware State Route"). In other words, it's business as usual from one of deep house's most consistent labels.

Review: Evil Smarty has spent much of his successful re-edit career collaborating with the equally cheekily named Bad Barbie. Here, he goes solo, delivering a four-track missive of reworks for '80s Child's Masterworks Music label. He gets things going with the throbbing, electro-disco stomp of "Disco Glory", before dipping the tempo for a dreamy rearrangement of Surface's loved-up synth-boogie classic "Falling In Love" (here simply titled "Falling", and arguably one of the most re-edited tunes of all time). "Go Gain" is a brilliant chunk of rock-tinged power-boogie (think bold synth bass, swooping sound effects, razor-sharp guitars and poodle perms), while "Eye 2 Eye" is a tooled-up, house-friendly sprint through purple funk pastures.

Played by: Marquez Ill
Review: Dutch Veteran Gerd's career stretches back an impressive 22 years. Planet F.D.M.X Pt 1 sees him return to Clone's retro-futurist Royal Oak offshoot for the first time in five years. Interestingly, opener "Planet F.D.M.X (909)" doffs a cap to early Warp "bleep and bass" releases, while also paying tribute to the spacey techno sounds of Detroit. There's a slightly more Larry Heard feel to the accompanying "707" mix of the same track, with deliciously deep chords and bright stabs accompanying a "Can You Feel It" style groove. On the flip, he's in full on space mode on the wonderfully attractive and rubbery "Visitors", while "The Cube" bounces along on a wave of vintage acid style refrains, jackin' beats and dreamy, drawn-out chords.

Review: Dirt3000's unstoppable force known as Dirt Crew is back with Berlin local tech house hero Tigerskin, who enlists a bit of help from Grambow on the smooth and melodic deep house of "Looking For Mushrooms (featuring Das Eb)". On "Tsukiji" they go for more of an uplifting house tune complete with swing fuelled rhythm, happy pianos and bumpy bassline that'd make even Kollektiv Turmstrasse stand up and notice! "Octocat" goes for something techier, darker and low-slung; better for the afterhours and finally "Red Fox" goes for more of the hazy and esoteric vibe that'll help you drift like a Crosstown Rebels or All Day I Dream track.

Review: To date, Bavarian duo Coeo has released a number of quietly impressive deep house singles on a variety of labels, including Let's Play House, Seven Music and Dabit. Back In The Days sees them return to the Toy Tonics imprint they last graced back in 2014. There's a classic disco-house-meets-contemporary deep house feel to the groovy and attractive title track, while "Jugendstil" adds hazy jazz influences to the same successful formula. The bizarrely titled "+++" throws African vocal and drum samples into the mix, combining them with bold string riffs and unfussy house beats to excellent effect. Finally, bonus track "Humbled" sees the duo return to their filter-sporting best, with the results sounding like a fusion of Soundstream and Tom Trago.

Review: An Australian based in London, producer Frankee More gives the occasional instalment of frothy party fun. There's no fear of groundbreaking sounds here or deep navel gazing, it's all about cheeky giggles on the dancefloor. Here we have another two such sizzlers to enjoy. First up, "This Feeling" fuses a laid-back electro-funk bassline with an impassioned soul vocal and a sax solo. On the digital flipside lurks "Dance Now", basically an update of C&C Music Factory's Everybody Dance Now that, if played at the right time, will blow the roof off any self-respecting house party. Job done.

Review: Dirt Crew's latest trip into hazy, soft focus deep house territory is an all-UK collaboration between London-based House of Disco regular Harry Wolfman and Manchester's Loz Goddard. They begin with the watery chords, off-kilter samples and eyes-closed grooves of "Uncle Buck", before reaching for the cascading synth solos on the classic New Jersey deep house bump of "Problem Child". You'll find a little more nu-disco influence on the bolder, more heavily electronic bump of "Neck Of The Woods", while the slap-bass boasting "Sundays" is a breezy, sun-flecked treat. If this isn't enough to get the juices flowing, check Brame & Hamo's remix of "Uncle Buck", which brilliantly re-casts the original as a loose chunk of jazz-funk inspired, organic house goodness.

Review: We're absolutely loving the deep and soulful grooves of Richmond, Virginia's DJ Aakmael of late. Whether it's on his own Unxposd imprint or London keepers of the new garde Church; who presented us his brilliant Beautiphul EP back a couple of months ago. On Church Volumes 002, he gives us "Just A Track (Part 7)", a dusty deep house jam with soul samples reminiscent of classic Nick Holder. Speaking of which, Laurence Guy goes for the same vibe on "Wish I Knew"; we really liked this smooth, summery and low-slung groove. Honourable mention to Debukas also; on "Gas & Air" he offers up something a bit more on the techy lo-fi tip influenced by early Chicago/Detroit.

Review: The story of how this record on Wolf Music came to be is a shining beacon of how the underground works at its finest. Booked to play Dortmund venue Oma Doris last year, the Wolf lads were handed a CD of demos from young resident DJ Mr Fries which had them very impressed. Soon after label and artist shook hands, and now Mr Fries becomes Wolf Music's Dortmund correspondent with this blissful 5 track EP. The young German is a fine fit for the Wolf cause, brandishing a deep take on house that's got just the right amount of dust and plenty of soul in the samples used. We'd wager Mr Fries was signed up on the strength of lead track "Get Together" alone! Money $ex Records alumnus Hodini and long-time Wolf affiliate Garth BE provide extra sweetness on remix duties.

Review: After years on the scene, NYC's Honey Dijon has finally received her dues on an international level and her move into production is showing great promise. Courtesy of the always reliable Classic Music Company, "Houze" is a driving and jacking acid odyssey optimised for pre-peak time energy levels complete with druggy pitch shifted vocals. Man of the moment and fellow New Yorker Eli Escobar turns in a more down and dirty rendition perfect for Brooklynite invite only loft parties, while Swiss high tech soul purveyor Deetron's extended remix is a total monster with that grinding, hooverish bassline and furious shuffle in the rhythm.

Love Spy - (6:02) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: NYC/London twosome Discotheque Credit is among the most eclectic of all re-edit outfits, with previous EPs touching on everything from the '80s synth-pop stylings of ABC, to the big beat-era electro of Les Rhythmes Digitales. Having reached Level 9 of their musical arcade adventure, the duo kicks things off with the hard-worn, mind-altering proto-house throb of "Burnt", where acid style electronics ride a snappy drum machine groove and undulating, Italo-style bassline. "Love Spy" sees them sneakily stitch together bits of an analogue house cover version of Cymade's "Bra", and the stripped-back dub of Was (Not Was) single "Spy In The House of Love". Sparse, rhythmic and chock full of heavy synth bass, it's something of a killer.

This 15th edition begins with a pair of collaborations between Illyus and Barrientos: the disco goes stadium house pump of "Camel Brotha", and "Just Bad Shit", where the duo teases out a killer groove before whipping off the shirt and going disco crazy in the closing minutes. In contrast, Purple Disco Machine and Lorenz Rhode's sunny filter disco jam "Birds" feels breezy despite its' loopy construction, while Danye S's contribution, "In The Streets", is hazy, blissful and soft focus. Its' glistening guitar lines are particularly delightful.

Review: Saucy have dubbed Dosage as being 'one of the most technically gifted blossoming producers the UK has to offer' and they're not wrong. Here we get to find out, starting with the celebratory fizz of the totally funky disco-house jam "Panama Peppers". The latter quickly gets disfigured for life by evil genius Kursa who brings some scary bass fire to the tune. "Reaper" continues the dark vibes with more of a dubby ghetto sound which is turned into a sleazy after-hours classic by Echoes & Knight. Finally Dosage teams up with Ricin for the harder bass and breaks attack of "Ishmael".

The best remix is Snacks' rework of the title track - all squelchy disco synths.

This is unabashed big room house music powered by beefy beats and fulsome synth lines, while the vocal hooks seal the deal in ensuring these tracks get everyone from the front rail to the back bar shaking their thang. If the three original jams weren't enough to get your set popping off, there's also a tech-injected remix from Dantiez included for good measure.

Review: The excellent Autonomous Africa series returns for a second release sporting cuts from label founder JD Twitch and the like minded Auntie Flo and Midland. Launched last year, the series intends to highlight the problems that outside interference from other countries has on African countries and their people with all the proceeds from each EP donated to a different charity in Africa. The inaugural EP raised funds for Medecins Sans Frontieres operations in Africa, while this year's EP will raise funds for the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania. Midland offers some of his best work to date with the thumping, scratchy 4/4 of original production "Checkbob" which is matched by JD Twitch's "Olaiya" which adds a devilish sub bassline to the jittery JBs style funk of the uncredited source. Elsewhere, Auntie Flo is in more contemplative mood with "Water Of Life" whilst Twitch's second edit "Juju" is a percussive delight.

Review: Leeds-born Daley Padey, aka Hot Since 82, is known for many things but humility isn't one of them (just read his bio!). Currently standing at the top of the commercial house food chain, Padey reaffirms this anointed position with a sample of the sounds his Knee Deep In Sound label will be treating the White Isle to this summer with a fine sampler. Highlights include Lewis Boardman's sinister and deep "Lose Control", the sunnier uplifting vibes of Dee Montero's "Vedra" and Landmark's sleek and catchy "Lost In The Club".

Review: It's become something of a cliche to point out Rayko's restless productivity, but it's nevertheless true that the Spanish producer does release rather a lot of material. To be fair to the Madrid man, this four-tracker for Midnight Riot is one of his stronger efforts. He begins with the life-affirming pianos and gospel vocals of "Hallelujah", before providing a sun-kissed re-dub of Fleetwood Mac's Balearic classic "Big Love" (here re-titled "Alone"). "That Sound" delivers an attractive blend of wiggly boogie synths, sharp riffs and fuzzy rock guitars, while "Get Loose" is a mostly instrumental re-recording of the Aleems' breakdance era electrofunk classic of the same name.

Review: Natal Zaks is a talented chap. To date, he's released a large amount of very good material, under numerous pseudonyms, for a wide variety of labels. Here he returns to Dekmantel with the second part of the Political Dance series, under the now familiar Central guise. Just like its' predecessor, it's a deliciously positive, melodious and atmospheric affair. The brilliant "Detour King" sounds like Space Dimension Controller, Vincent Floyd and Boyd Jarvis jamming on Mars, while "Political Dance" is a deliciously loved-up journey into early New Jersey deep house, with some distinctively spacey flourishes to boot. Zaks also doffs a cap to ambient house era intelligent techno on the luscious "Convenient Departures".

Played by: GOLDBOY
Review: De Fantastiske To are Ravi and Marius from Oslo, Norway who make feel good deep house vibes for fans of Arto Mwambe or Kollektiv Turmstrasse - like on the dreamy and melodic groove of "God Fallelse". The track gets a couple of kick ass remixes, such as by the likes of Yam Who? whose nu-disco odyssey ticks all the right boxes. But they save the best for last on the emotive high tech soul of "Ut Av Det BlA" which is the perfect accompaniment for a midnight drive down a Detroit freeway.

Review: Hometaping Is Killing Music, the Scottish imprint devoted to the underground, is back this time with Italian young gun Nicholas on the Bonus Beats 1 EP. Things kick off with "Hot Nights" which offers as deadly a sample usage of Minnie Ripperton as the Linkwood classic "R.I.P.". Also on the A side is "Atmo" featuring Paul Cut; more deep and soulful funk grooves for fans of KDJ style jams. On the flip we've got the pumping percussive DJ tool "Together (Beats)" which is a welcome addition to any serious DJs arsenal and finally "Something To Believe" which gets back on the soul train in delightful '70s retrovert fashion.

El Viento Tropical - (6:39) 125 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Issued on Dirtybird's offshoot, here's a release that captures two distinctly different moods. "El Viento Tropical" oozes good summer vibes. As its title suggests, it sweeps in with steel drums, rum-sozzled muf-fled vocals and infectious Latino funk, all underpinned by a rolling house backing. You can picture it getting played at beach bars across the world. "A Whole Lot" represents the opposite end of the mood spectrum; here, the kicks are tough and are supported by a more menacing vocal and insistent bleeps. It's the flip side to "El Viento Tropical" - package holiday hell served up on a puke-stained platter.

Review: That Needs An Edit is a new project from York-based disco enthusiasts Brunswick and Pete Le Freq. A whole load of stuff you know, reworked and rebuilt in their own style and appear for London-based Midnight Riot here, with their edit of a certain soul classics on "When You Gonna Call" and "Backyard" respectively, which are really uplifting. "The Way I Feel" is more on the disco tip while "Dub Me Good" takes the razor to Beats International's version of their 1991 hit/cover "Dub Be Good To Me" which ain't too bad either.

Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

Review: Miami's Jesse Perez follows in the tradition of his hometown's musical legacy ie: seriously bass driven dance music for freaks. He teams up with the west coast don of electro Egyptian Lover on "Cell Phones" fuelled by some fierce and funky breaks beneath a collage of hip hop samples that will appeal to a wide cross range of DJs. "Twerk Machine" will have you doing exactly that, right after the sick drop; bumpy and funky minimal tech house in the vein of Jamie Jones or Jey Kurmis plus those breaks make a welcome comeback. Finally "The One Two Checka" re-asserts that breakbeats are his main strength once more, these ones come at you fierce like a wall of sound; check it!

Review: Southern Fried, Futureboogie, and Dirtybird make for a rather stellar production CV, and that's just how Eats Everything rolls - tune after tune, killer after killer. He's back on Pets Recordings this time around, and the debauchery starts off with the string-led, oddball disco-house of "Big Discs", followed promptly and proudly by the more subtle, more teched-out drive of "Way Past Bedtime". A couple of effective house mutants for ya!

Review: Back in March, Ondule label boss Joss Moog and Sebastien "Around7" Guertau unveiled their 4th Sign project, launching with a fine collection of soul-flecked deepness. This speedy follow-up is every bit as alluring, with the French duo effortlessly floating between a variety of dancefloor moods and tempos. Contrast, for example, the smoky, mid-tempo jazz-house of "The Movement", the string-drenched, sumptuously soulful bump of "Deep Dip", and the near horizontal, slow house head-nod of closer "Lunatique". For those keen on more energetic dancefloor flavours, they've also included a pair of charged-up disco house smashers ("The Right Color", and "Hot Saussice").
