Review: Spanish producers Angel Funke and Alex Brinken are experienced heads in the disco-house game. Here they join forces with an EP for party-starters Chopshop. Lead cut "What's The Colour" sets the tone, building a sparkling deep house/disco hybrid following a superb, cowbell and bongo-laden intro. It's based around a groove that recalls the late '90s productions of disco-house specialists Peppermint Jam. Funke's "Zombie" adds a little Afrobeat shuffle to the formula, building into a percussive frenzy via relentless organs and electric piano keys. The collaborative "Nu Funk A Go" slows things down, offering a spooky, smoky trip into classic trip-hop territory.

Review: Middlesborough-based DJ/producer Appo has been mixing up and chopping up tracks since the late '70s. Here he makes his first appearance on re-edit imprint Chopshop with a five-track, pick 'n' mix assortment of floor-friendly reworks that touches on Balearica, AOR and, of course, disco. In the latter category come slo-mo disco-reggae drum workout "Fantasy Island" and scream-along disco-soul anthem "Getaway". Weirdly, two of the best cuts are also the most esoteric selections. Appo must have had his tongue firmly pressed in cheek when chopping up Cliff Richard's "Devil Woman" (really) and JJ Cale's "Cocaine". Both tracks are given a surprisingly Balearic new lease of life.

Tricky Situation (Martin Davies remix) - (9:32) 110 BPM
from $2.55
Review: Veteran Swedish producer Beat Fanatic (Ture Sjolberg) knows a thing or two about a dancefloor teasing re-edit gem. Here on Tricky Situation he tackles the evergreen 1970s Ned Doheny classic Get It Up For Love, or rather a slowed down rework version, which ends up sounding like the Gypsy Kings jamming with some drunk cowboys. That's a good thing by the way. Martin Davies also joins the party, bringing along some peyote fuelled nu-disco meanderings with him. Never has something so silly sounded so good!

Review: They seek him here, they seek him there, the elusive Bloody Tadi is rumoured to dwell everywhere from Dubai to Slovenia. What we do know is that Chopshop has gone beyond the traditional edit route and presented us with this excellent four-track hybrid of deep house and slo-mo disco. Highlights include the pilled up g-funk of "No Worms" and the deep and jazzy womb-house of "Been Too Long".

Review: ChopShop Digital barely deviates from its' well-worn formula, which involves serving up multi-artist EPs full of tried-and-tested reworks. Happily, they're at it again here. BnC kicks things off with the break-driven funk shuffle of "Good Times Roll", before Woodhead & Hebegebe raise the temperature with the heavy funk-goes-Italo-disco surge of "Pony Up". West Country scalpel fiends Situation serve up the dusty soul sweetness of "Change For A Coke", while Senior Citizens attempt to outdo them with the similarly luscious and soulful "The Perfect Plan". Finally, label boss George Kelly steals the show with a killer re-cut of Willie Bobo/Ronnie Laws favourite "Always There".

Review: Ricky Bonewell's music on the Slowburner EP incorporates three vintage songs re-edited into sinuous and percussive grooves. "Edit Your Love" is all dark sweaty basement bass and fierce percussion breaks, "Itadi" is throbbing late hip grinder and "Slowburner" is all dreamy dreamy synths and slo-mo bottom end, a beautifully seductive closer.

Review: The latest offering from the Chop Shop camp aims to shine a light on a trio of up-and-coming re-edit artists. Polish producer Brick Fever made his debut on the label earlier this year, and here delivers two more party-starting highlights; the horn-heavy, synth-laden, straightened out anthem that is "Last Dance", and the smooth, soulful disco shuffle of "Stay With Me". Italian producer Ten Different also impresses with "Shake", a deliciously percussive, all-instrumental rework of the Jacksons' "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)", before joining forces with Vaudafunk for a cheery stroll though house-friendly disco pastures on the swinging "Orlando Magic".

Review: Welcome to the future. Welcome to the past. Whichever direction you wish to travel, the Capitan will take you there in style. Cruising in a gas-guzzling disco edit machine, his vibes sing to any floors from the 70s right through until tomorrow. Each of these grooves have already been tried and tested with full vocals attached now Chopshop have commissioned a full set of instrumentals for added DJ creativity. Highlights include the reverb saturation on "Firehoes" guitar licks, the Chic-style bass juice on "Love Me Crazy" and the heavy horn action on "Play It Again". Ideal for all summer shenanigans, Futuro and Chopshop have delivered some serious goodness right here.

Review: Chopshop regulars DJ Butcher and BnC have enjoyed considerable success since joining forces as Captain Futuro. Unlike their solo releases, which flit between funtime disco re-edits and housed-up party jams, their Captain Futuro material delves into the party-hearty world of hip-hop, old skool electro and, in this case, reggae. Both the cheeky "Natural Fun" (it samples, we think "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun") and "Dancehall Style" meld together elements of reggae, disco, hip-hop and electrofunk, largely with great success. "Gimme Some More" recreates classic '80s electro, while closer "Girls Wanna Dance" offers a new take on perennial party fave "I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Review: Something a little different from the Chopshop camp, as DJ Butcher and BnC join forces for a project inspired by the disco-biting world of early hip-hop. It's a definite progression for the Chopshop crew, who previously stuck largely to straightforward re-edits and mash-ups. Of course, there's plenty of reliance on classic samples - see the bumpin', jazz-flecked disco breaks of "Like We Say" and rubbery disco-funk groovery of "Freak The Groove" - but also plenty of invention within the bouncin', block-party grooves of "Firehoes" and "Play It Again". It's the latter - all head-nodding bump, twittering flutes, disco horns and addictive rap - that really stands out.

Review: Captain Futuro, a collaboration between producer/MC Jeff Gonzalez and DJ Butcher, has long been one of Chopshop's most interesting projects. While much of the label's output focuses on straight-up disco re-edits, the Captain Futuro sound is much more akin to the original, disco and boogie-friendly sound of classic early hip-hop. This expansive debut album-come-compilation, which boasts both vocal and instrumental versions of many tracks, follows this simple goodtime formula, delivering a range of tracks that borrow heavily from both well known and obscure '70s and '80s records, adding fresh rap vocals and those lifted from previously released hip-hop jams. Predictably, it's a hugely enjoyable set, sharply focused on getting the party started, whatever the time or place.

Review: With a sly wink and a beckoning wave of the hand, Chopshop invite us into their boudoir for another seductive trip into slinky rework territory. As usual, many bases are covered. Captain Futuro kicks things off with "Love Me Crazy", a slo-mo disco-flecked hip-hop head-nodder. Label supremo DJ Butcher turns Dave Gerard's "Twisted Message" (a sneaky bootleg version of the Furious Five classic) into a disco funk-breaks smasher, before laying down some revivalist rare groove fun in the shape of his own "However Do You Want Me" (a rework of Soul II Soul's "Back To Life"). A decidedly sensual package is completed by the misty-eyed headiness of Ill Advised "Superstition" (yep, a remake of that "Superstitition").

Review: Hailing from Rio De Janeiro, producer Carrot Green's latest offering his a house prayer, literally a "Novena".

Elsewhere "Leadbelly" boasts a deep Chicago bassline thrills with Afro overtones, while "Novena" is chopped and housed up by DJ Butcher.

Review: Label regular Cazbee has hooked up with Chopshop boss himself, DJ Butcher, for a new three-track groove-fest. Title track, "You Don't Know", is a slow burner, coming across like The Scissors Sisters doing a 70s ballad...produced by Morcheeba. "Hyped Up" is more party-orientated fare, capturing a killer vintage funk sample, looped over an almost AC/DC-style 4/4 beat and adorned with rationed synth flourishes. Finally, "In Search Of Phenomena" is fast and furious disco-funk, with rolling bongos and a meaty bass synth riff, all punctuated with some effective action from the brass section.

Review: Re-edit heavy hitters Chopshop are back following their recent killer Greg Wilson/Groove Armada EP, and the big guns are out in force. Andrew Clarke is first up with "My Desire", an exotic funk bass and shimmering grand piano orgy. Then Yam Who? arrives at the party armed with "Quested": an immense synth-boogie looper that will slay you without even trying. Not to be outdone, DJ Butcher's "The Future Is Ours" risks weirding out the dancefloor with its twisted leftfield funk, and succeeds (possibly due to the dog barking bit). Lastly Appo ends with a classic: an arpeggiated disco cover of Chain Of Fools.

Review: Having previously delivered both chunky disco edits and cheeky, bootleg style reworks, the usually reliable Chopshop crew offer up an EP dripping with soul and funk. Included is a loose, hip-hop tempo rework of deep jazz-funk standard "Nautilus" from Copycat (ideal for those bar sets/warm up moments), a head-nodding, heavy 4/4 tweak of an odd electrofunk record from DJ Raw Sugar, and a dubbed-out take on James Brown ("The Boss") by Discotech. Best of all, though, is DJ Agent 86's "Give It To Me Baby", a cheeky, horn-toting rework of freaky 80s funk legend Rick James.

Review: Stafford's Dave Gerrard has been around for over 30 years so you can trust the DJ on this one. He's back on his usual stomping ground for more disco goodies on DJ Butcher's Chopshop out of Athens, Greece. He first takes the knife to the Jackson 5's "Dancing Machine" on "Generation 5" (great edit this one!), then he turns in an edit of a proper soul funk classic on "Repeat The Funk" (any guesses?) but finally he gives a Bill Withers classic a makeover on "You Got The Stuff". Class!

The former delivers a bouncy, slightly toughened up re-interpretation of Deodato's Brazilian disco-funk classic "Night Cruiser" (here re-titled simply "Cruiser"), while the latter get knee deep in Funkadelic on the kaleidoscopic synth-funk bump of "What About The Groove". Elsewhere, label talisman George Kelly drops a future re-edit anthem in the shape of the punchy, disco/boogie fusion "Feet Start Moving", and Vaudafunk teases out a killer saxaphone line on the distinctly big and bold "Sugar".

DJ "S" begins by tackling the mighty 70s jam "Shaft" - adding a thumping great house kick to bring it up to date. Elsewhere we get filtered French-touch style grooves on Vaudafunk's "Somebody's Stole My Nuggets" and HP Vince's "Funky Disco Party" is all about the hedonistic loops. Finally we end with an extremely familiar funk riff, toughed up to devastating effect on S Nolla's "Do You Wanna".

Review: Fancy flavours may be all the rage, but there's little more delicious and refreshing on a hot summer's day than a cornet stuffed to the brim with vanilla ice cream. Certainly, that's the view of the guys and gals at Chopshop, who've named their latest collection of party-starting disco and electrofunk jams after the stuff. As usual, there's much to enjoy, from the rubbery bass and twinkling chords of Quincy Jointz and Shaddy's breezy "Rebel On The Run", to the sun-baked disco-house warmth of Brick Fever's "A Lot To Offer". As for George Kelly's title track, we can safely say it's the lick (sorry).

As usual, there's plenty to devour, from the warm chords and deep house sassisness of Peter Francis and James Omarta's "Slo Grind", to the lolloping, break-driven jazz-funk of Dj Butcher's "The Perfect High". Elsewhere, Andy Kidd doffs a cap to '80s rare groove with the soulful head-nodder "Remind Me" (arguably the EP's stand out track), and Rotarydisco76 impresses with the blazed, wide-eyed deep Latin funk of "Ultima Chance".

Review: There's something pleasingly old-fashioned about DJ Butcher's approach. Steadfastly committed to toasty, feelgood grooves, his productions veer from hip-hop influenced cut-and-paste creations to straight-up edits and sample-heavy blends. You'll fittingly find all three styles here, from the pleasingly sweet feelgood electrofunk grooves of "Disco Nite", and sample-heavy boogie bounce of "Ef U En Kay", to the "To Be Real" biting jazz-funk niceness of "Real Brother". Even better is the Rhodes-laden deep boogie-funk headiness of "Where's The Funk", which fittingly boasts some heavy percussive breaks and killer old school vocal samples.

Review: To mark the fifth anniversary of his re-edit imprint ChopShop, label owner DJ Butcher now presents his long awaited debut long player, "The Breaks". It's an ambitious project that took at least a year of deep digging, sourcing, remastering and editing. It was a labour of love of course, and this album has clearly been crafted with lots of love - with plenty of newly restored and delicately tweaked rare '70s funk gems, including the much-sampled bassline of "That's Right", the laser-tom drum assault of "Disco Owl" and the spacey Californian yacht rock of "Breakdown".

Review: Chopshop supremo DJ Butcher is back following the success of his recent debut long player The Breaks. This time he's in pure uplifting party mode, delivering two slices of prime euphoric '70s disco. "Moog Brass Rhythm" is more than a little disco inferno with loops of brassy breaks held together with a nice 'n' loose hi-hat. A similar hi-hat can be found leading the slinky chopped up title track into sleazier territory. Good times are here again!

Review: Disco deejay and scalpel-handy audio surgeon, DJ Butcher, has awoken from winter hibernation to deliver his first EP of 2015. The Last Hurrah boasts three new joints, all with a noticeably sultry vibe. "Making Mad Music" is all smoldering, percussive 1980s yacht-beat, "Talk Is Cheap" is a sharp, tight and a funky wake-up slap, and finally "You Promised Me Some Lovin'" is a combination of the two - with clipped, funky riffs grinding with sticky disco melodies.

Review: To date, DJ Butcher has earned himself a reputation as a purveyor of fine party-starting tackle - the kind of edits-not-edits that blur the boundaries between remixes, mash-ups and original productions. This latest EP for his Chopshop label continues on a similar theme, with lead cut "Boyz" sitting somewhere between old skool electro, breaks, house and boogie. "Need Some" - available in vocal and dub flavours - sounds like a long lost New York freestyle cut from 1985 (no bad thing in our book), while "The Party Has Just Began" [sic] fixes heavy synth bass to the sort of acid-laden breakbeat-house jam that was all the rage around '89-90. All four tracks are, of course, buckets of fun.

Review: After honing his skills with a series of well-regarded re-edit releases, DJ Butcher changes tack here, delivering a devilishly sweet fusion of deep electrofunk, B-boy breaks and old skool hip-hop vocals. Clearly designed as a tribute to late '70s/early '80s hip-hop (check out the Sugarhill Gang/Furious Five style vocals), "Sol Wrap" has enough about it to suggest that it will easily slip into contemporary party sets. There's an instrumental, too, for those who can't be doing with the vocal, while Leftside Wobble offers up a slick remix that replaces the bass with pulsing vintage synth hits. The Latin-flavoured Timewrap Remix is pretty tasty, too.

Instrumentals and acapella versions are also supplied for maximum fun.

Review: Previously found on compilations, here re-edit hero DJ Laurel, makes a solo debut on the mighty Chopshop. First up is the title track and suffice to say it takes a well loved 70s classic and goes back, Jack, and does it again...with a beefy back beat for good measure. Next, "Falses Faces", is more obscure, but just as effective with a tight, thumping funk groove and an impassioned vocal grunt-along. "I Wouldn't Treat A Dog" follows as a transportive melancholic Balearic dream, and "The Breakdown Funk" is an old-time boogie clap-a-long.

Review: The disco edits are coming thick and fast this August, perhaps the summer heat has ignited all the producer's creativity. DJ Butcher's ChopShop label has a new missive, Special Things, which sees the work of four talented acts rounded up and compiled for our listening pleasure. DJ XS is up first with the punchy drums and 80s soft rock vocals of pop-house jam, "25 Miles". Next Fantasy Love Affair present "Slow Love" - a loop-heavy slice of mellow beachside dream-boogie, Ken@Work gives us "The Jackal", a slow and bluesy groover, and lastly Saint Mathieu wraps it up with "Finer Things", a glorious P-Funk influenced disco-house bomb.

Review: Tom's cheeky productions have surfaced on a plethora of cheeky edit labels including Drum Beats, Chunky Traxx and Shak. However he seems to be settling in with the infamous Chopshop and here he's stays put for a hip hop fuelled corker. "Rebounce" is a slinky funky breaks number coupled with Timbaland's rap from Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody" for a more hands-in-the-air party anthem. If, for some bizarre reason, it fails to work, then call in the does-what-it-says-on-the-tin "No Diggity Edit" which will destroy all and sundry and then some!

Review: Classic b-boy business from start to finish, Tom Drummond steps forward with a slice of premium party breaks that sits somewhere between Ugly Duckling and Abdominal. A flavour array ensues as we're bombarded with creative twists; the scratch-heavy, breakdance-ready chops of the Cuts edit, the neat sweet organ blasts of DJ Butcher's sexy disco twist and DJ Ace's serious attention to detail on the drums all score high on the funk-o-meter. Flipping the bird has never been so essential.

Review: Chopshop's latest saunter into the sun-kissed world of summertime grooves comes from Fantasy Love Affair, AKA Los Angeles-based scalpel merchant DJ Recycle. The Californian is in a predictably warm and loved-up mood throughout, shuffling between the saucer-eyed, mellow jazz-funk loveliness of "Music Saved My Life", where fluttering flute solos and lazy guitar riffs wrap themselves around a sumptuous groove, and the near horizontal, Terry Callier style soul bliss of "How Can I Forget". In between, you'll find "Vive Libra" - a swirling and occasionally grandiose chunk of shirts-off disco smothered in epic orchestration.

Review: Greek re-edit powerhouse, Chopshop, is back this time with a new various artist's compilation, Lost In Grooves. There's plenty of jollies to be had here, beginning with the high drama of "Lost In Venice" a swirling disco features golden tonsilled sirens and bug thumping drums. Elsewhere Levantine's "Atmosphere" recalls the good old days of French Touch, with its warm, filtered loops, C Da Afro opts for lazy beats and sumptuous strings on "The Sexy Groove" and DJ Laurel mellows things out with some silky 80s synth funk grooves on "Rising On Top". Slick!

Review: Trust us, in our experience when encountering someone who goes by a nickname like Fingerman, it's usually best not to enquire as to how they came to be christened so. Here though he seems intent for us to know his true story, and luckily for us he's explaining it through the language of music. "I Know Its Mine" is a snazzy, brassy anthemic jam, "Lenny's Disco" is super camp fun of the Carl Bean variety, "Outta Sight" is more low-slung stuff, and "Honky Honk", with its incredible sliding bassline, is the sound of a roof being raised!

Review: Producer/Remixer/Label Owner George Kelly aka DJ Butcher is back on his adored Chopshop imprint again. Expect to hear anything from jazz, funk, hip hop and disco all the way to house, electro and big beat on this fine label. Here Kelly goes deep into sexy and groovy territory with his new EP "The Nudist Camp". The title track is a sunny and evocative disco jam that's perfect for Sunday open-air bliss: bring on the third (is that what we're up to?) Summer Of Love! Next up "Aquarian Dream" is a looped up funky house groover which is once again on the disco tip and at some points could almost pass for early noughties Hed Kandi or Defected: a compliment if there ever was one. Finally "Venga" is as lo-slung and slo-mo and you like it: perfect for drifting and getting stoned into the groove.

Review: On his last outing, Grecian producer George Kelly successfully joined forces with vocalist Andre Esput to showcase the soulful side of his output. Here, he's back in solo mode, returning to the Chopshop imprint he founded some years back. The Big McGhee doesn't take long to get into its' stride, starting as it does with a slamming, decidedly heavyweight house rework of Marlena Shaw's "Woman Of The Ghetto". Jimmy 'Bo' Horne rework "Spankbank" is similarly stomping, with Kelly expertly cutting up and rearranging the original's famous electric piano riffs over a bounding house groove. Finally, the title track delivers a tightened up, straightened out version of Francine McGee's infamously wild disco smasher "Feelin' Good".

Review: Back in the day, US rock band Kiss created quite a furore when they were finally unmasked. Now it's the turn of veteran re-edit maestro DJ Butcher who, for this new LP, now steps beyond the moniker to reveal himself as George Kelly. Staying true to his heart he album delivers 11 tracks of what he does best - expert disco scalpel jobs. Highlights include the retweaked Eric B & Rakim/Coldcut jam "Music Just Turns Me On", the six-minute, string laden clap along "Turn It Up" and the squelchy funk grooves of "No Taboos".

Review: Chopshop's chief scalpel fiend, George Kelly, returns to action with another three-track assault of goodtime grooves. First up you'll find "Last Forever", a swinging chunk of sumptuous, string-drenched, saucer-eyed disco funk goodness that derives much of its instinctive sweetness from a hip-hop style breakbeat, fluttering dub effects and some particularly tasty horns. Kelly pushes up the tempo a little on "Satisfaction Express", a rework that benefits greatly from the producer's on-point rearrangement skills and subtle effects. It may not be that revolutionary by re-edit standards, but it's certainly very, very good. He completes a great package with the bouncy, Brass Construction style goodness of "The Brass Band".
