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
from $1.95
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 $1.95
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.

from $1.95
Review: Futureboogie's annual Summer Riot EP rarely disappoints. This year's instalment of the multi-artist extravaganza - the fifth in totak - is every bit as essential as its' predecessors. Long time friend of the family Bonar Bradberry steps up first with "Analogue Express", where bubbly synthesizer lead lines rub shoulders with Chicken Lips style bass and rich, life-affirming piano chords. Experienced Italian DJ Rocca fuses brain-melting acid lines, dark electronics and African influences on the wonky "Voodoo", before former Fila Brazillia man Steve Cobby drops a lolloping chunk of audible sunshine in the shape of "Lefthanded Books". Arguably best of all, though, is Field Theory's "Rituals", a swirling fusion of dreamy deep house, mind-altering acid, and warehouse-friendly rhythms.

Review: There are no holidays to be had at Punks HQ this year, what with the release of their BBQ Beats comp and a new single from Left/Right +Jacq. Following on from the huge Can't Stop, this new jam, "Lies" will only keep the hype coming. The original is pure cinematic gothic vibes with brooding bass hums and morbid vocals. The remixes are livelier affairs however - Billy Kenny drops the BPMs a tad for his riotously sleazy tech-bass monster of mix. A tough act to follow, but Aloka brings it with a remix full of stark drum and bass-meets-breaks mayhem.

Review: Those who pay close attention to the contemporary edit scene should already be aware of Voodoo Whiskey. The Newcastle-based producer has previously released music on a wide number of labels - Undercover Operations, Editorial and Chopshop included - and here pops up on '80s Child's Masterworks Music. He begins with the bumpin', delay-laden disco-house swing of "Blueberry Muffins", before dipping a toe into the world of filter-heavy disco-funk on the pleasingly sweet and punchy "Get Next To You". Elsewhere, be sure to check out the funked-up disco-house roller "Tutti Frutti" (the main sax riff, in particular, is ace), and closer "Kittiwake Kebab", whose combination of hazy instrumentation and shuffling breakbeats is particularly refreshing.

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: 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: In the past Romanian producer Heion (aka Razvan Ghenciu) has dabbled in both disco and house. Here though, he returns from a bit of a break with a new EP, In The Moment, which also introduces a jazzier tone to his sound. The title track kicks things off with laid-back Mediterranean moods - gentle percussion, warm synth washes and jazzy keys tinkling away. Elsewhere "Hot To Trot" ups the tempo and adds shimmering arpeggios into the mix, "Embrace It" meanwhile embraces the live and loose funk bass and finally The Model reworks Hot To Trot into deep trance-tech.

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: 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.

from $1.95
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.

Give & Take - (6:02) 103 BPM
from $1.95
Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: A legendary funk band from Brooklyn, Brass Construction blazed a trail throughout the 70s producing grade-A vintage boogie. Much of their repertoire has been plundered by sample-heavy acts since, but here we get the original and true album version of 1975's "Movin". Displaying the kind of musicianship that could only be learnt by slogging it out on the notorious Chitlin' Circuit. Moogs and mellotrons, funky bass and smooth vocals, the song is still a party bomb now. However the SAW-house style extended/Back To My Roots mix and the syrupy 80s pop of "Give And Take" both add some 'challenging' schmaltziness.

Review: James Curd is a deep house nomad, jumping from label to label and from bomb to bomb. The thing about his own personal strain of house is, however, that he likes to add a little Chicago flair and wizardry to his tunes. Although "Checking Out NYC" refers to the other big US house town, the track is very much rooted in the sort of fire that peeps like Ron Trent used to make - sexy piano keys, subtle waves of acid and swampy vocal samples all wrapped up in a tight groove. "Vertigo" is darker and heavier on the 303 licks, while "Dance&Dash" is a super nice tropical touch to end this sublime EP that comes very heavily recommended and tipped from us.

Review: Following a run of releases from L'Enfant and Feirertag, Kraak & Smaak's Boogie Angst label turns its attentions to the music of Snacks, a production unit that helped launch the Magic Jams label in 2014. This four-track EP is full of life and bursting most is the soul of "We Want Love" which feels like some kind of post-futurist amalgamation of Moby mixed with John Legend and early Hotflush records. "Get Me High" merges R&B with Prince and Stevie Wonder-influenced pop, while "Chatter" is less about the vocals and more about dope keys and chords. And for DJs out there, an extended mix of the title track comes as a bonus.

Review: Shir Khan's Black Jukebox series rolls ever onwards, in the process serving up another bumper selection of groovy house cuts built around extensive disco samples. 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.

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.

Review: London's Duke Dumont is still basking in the huge success of his synthpop hit Ocean Drive. However he started in the underground and his For Club Play Only series is his way of staying in touch with his roots. That said, his fourth instalment does see him defect from Tiga's Turbo Recordings to Defected, and lead track "Be Here" is a lot more commercial in sound. Boasting gospel diva vocals and warm, soulful 90s synth pads, the song is a radio friendly winner. "Worship", though, with its bleepy Italo disco bassline and melodies is the cooler of two tunes by far.

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: Ever since their last release, we've been preoccupied with what really does do go on deep within the mind of a dragon. It turns out that beneath all the scales and firey breath they tend to think a lot about holidaying in Ayia Napa circa 2001. Wonder if Saint George knew this. Anyway, "Too Much" is a delicious mix of catchy distant vocals snippets and perky 130bpm beats and warm, undulating bass waves. Remix-wise Mike Millrain brings the '90s house fire - all slammin' New York garage vibes and closer than close synthy goodness. Summer is officially here!

Lady Bird - "Jazzy Doll" - (8:20) 125 BPM

Review: Italy's masters of the Balearic re-edit return, with chief scalpel-wielder Enzo Elias successfully touching-up a trio of saucer-eyed classics. His penchant for dreamy old Italian deep house is well-known, so it's little surprise to see him reworking Morenas' tactile, twinkling "Hazme Sonar" (a production by the team who brought us "Sueno Latino"). Removing most of the original vocal and teasing out the action for maximum effect, Elias makes great use of the rolling piano lines and attractive bassline. Elsewhere, he successfully stretches out and rearranges Lady Bird's trumpet-laden deep house number "Jazzy Doll", and provides a thoroughly floor-friendly, peaktime rearrangement of Afrika Bambaata's piano-heavy 1990 hip-house jam "Just Get Up & Dance". It has "festival anthem" written all over it.

Review: To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Boris Dlugosch's debut single, "Keep Pushin" - something of a chunky, funky house anthem in its' time - a swathe of remixes were released last year. 12 months on, Peppermint Jam delivers three more reworks, each of which just missed the cut in 2015. Session Victim steps up first, utilizing snippets of the now famous vocal over a dreamy deep house groove, rubbery bass and subtle disco touches. Hyped disco-house twosome Purple Disco Machine deliver a bouncy Dub blessed with an extended, teased-out build-up and killer breakdown, before Oliver Dollar tips a wink to the French Touch sound with a tough, hard-edged disco-house Dub.

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: 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: 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: DJ Deeon's original version of Freak Like Me was a house hit first time around - that's 20 years ago! It was revived in Ibiza when Marco Carola dropped Lee Walker's remix and now it's newfound success continues with remixes by the mighty Armand Van Helden and Sonny Fodera. The former opts for stripped and tough speed garage with swirly synth breaks, whilst the latter opts for rolling drums, stark vibes and elastic bass. With the quality of all these new mixes this tune is on its way to becoming immortal!

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.

Review: Here Pets unveil the second outing in the Home Is Where The Pool Is series (best name ever?), and the mood is deep and bouncy -perfect for swishing cocktails, skimpy bikinis and inflatables-a-go-go. Eats Everything is up first with the thumping and loopy rolling techno of "Chitter Chatter (dub)", before things flair up with the tingly fizz of Gemini's "On This Planet (Walker & Royce Edit)". "In Thin Air" by Steffano Ritteri is misty eyed synth-pop and Kim Ann Foxman & Shaun J Wright get really deep and emotional on the jackin' "Destination".

Review: Roots For Bloom boss Jamie Trench has decided to mix things up a little on the latest edition of the Shag Edits series, supplementing one of his own contributions with cuts from three label debutants. His "Where The Party At" is a brilliantly ballsy, bass-heavy fusion of classic funk breaks, 45 King style samples and booming house beats, while Reese Johnson makes merry on the heavyweight disco-funk-goes-house slammer "Let's Dance". Bristol-based Alfresco Disco regular J Morrison snuggles up to the Godfather of Soul on his bumpin', subtly executed funk head-nodder "Brown Eyes", before G Markus brings proceedings to a close with the acid-laden deep house/disco fusion that is "BING!".

Review: Following the success of their first all-star EP, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams has once again assembled the crew for a second throw-down. Dennis Sutra goes for the jugular on opener "TIME 4 PRAYER", where ghetto-house style cut-up vocal snippets ride a thumping, 128 BPM groove, while "Fear E" reaches for the classic house vocal samples on the low-slung warehouse jack of "Candi's Quadra". Speaking of jack-tracks, you'll struggle to find more muscular thrills than the fuzzy electronics, stomping beats and hedonistic intent of CT Trax's "Walk For Me". The same outfit's surging acid jam, "Toxic", pulls down the curtain on another killer DABJ release.

Say What You Want (Dicky Trisco version) - (5:44) 119 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Given that he's one of the owners of Maxi Discs - alongside longtime pal and sometime production partner Dicky Trisco - it's perhaps surprising that this is Pete Herbert's first solo single for the label. Amazingly, it's also his first EP under his own name for three years. Naturally, there's plenty to enjoy, from the bouncy nu-disco bass, Italo riffs and rolling disco percussion of "Gang Related", to the Reverso 68 style Balearic nu-disco of "Say What You Want" and bold, anthemic, piano-laden electrofunk rinse-out "Slave To It". Dicky Trisco reworks "Say What You Want", emphasizing the original's Italo-influenced melodies while giving the track a greater dub disco flex.
