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.

from $2.50
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.

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.

from $1.49
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.

from $2.50
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". The title track manages to combine a hypnotic funk with a nocturnal spiritualism. Elsewhere "Leadbelly" boasts a deep Chicago bassline thrills with Afro overtones, while "Novena" is chopped and housed up by DJ Butcher.

Review: Cazbee is best known for his collaborative re-edits and reworks with Padded Cell man Richard Sen, most of which have been nigh on essential. Here he steps out of Sen's shadow for a four-tracker on DJ Butcher's Chopshop imprint. As you might expect, it's pretty good, offering up smart re-edits across a range of styles and tempos. There's the sweet, synth-laden disco-funk of "Get On Up", a breathless afro-funk stomper ("Travellin Man"), and a sultry, sensual stroll through slo-mo pastures (the 'erection section' groove of "Second Time Coming"). Best of all, though, is "Stand Up", a riotously percussive disco workout that gets the right balance between lo-slung funk and peaktime pressure just right.

In Search Of Phenomena - (5:16) 123 BPM
from $1.49
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: There's a whole bunch, ten in fact - count em! - of high-end Parisian disco re-edits to choose from here. Proceedings begin with six-minute jam, "Get It", which is a tantalising re-edit of a well-known female's disco-funk record. It's so well chopped up, it'll be on the tip of your tongue as to its identity, but we're not going to spoil it for you. Further on, we have the accelerating, string-laden "Differente", the glistening boogie of "Victim Dub", the Italo sadness of "Nite Time" (originally 'The Night' by Valerie Dore), the self-explanatory "Percussions" and the haunting new romanticism of "Berlin 83". C'est bon!

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-based producer Dave Gerrard specializes in creating cut-and-paste tracks that blend the best elements of familiar disco, funk, boogie and hip-hop jams. What really marks him out, though, is the classy way that he does it. Check out the way he shifts between basslines, grooves and samples on the boogie-tinged house jam "What We Gonna Do Here" (inspired, if that's the word, by Midnight Express's "Danger Zone") or the way he breathes new life into the Average White Band on the thrilling "Drop The Pieces". There's also a riotous tribute to the giants of P-Funk on "Rip The Funk", arguably the EP's strongest moment.

Review: Having spent recent times darting between proper party fodder and strobelight disco delights, the Chopshop crew return with an EP the dips the tempo and depends the grooves for an altogether more slow burn feel. 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.

from $1.49
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.

Review: The much-loved Chopshop label is back with four more saucy retakes for your aural pleasure. Label boss DJ Butcher kicks off proceedings with the shimmering bass odyssey of "Paradise", and next is JMRS' new cover of The Stones' "Miss You" which livens up this disco-rock classic with perky guitar and a Lionel Richie-esque vocal, finally the slinky female fronted funk of "Good Time Groove Train" leads us into Ronin's stormin electro-disco remix of "Miss You" - easily the coolest joint on this excellent EP.

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: Clash Of The Titans here, with Clapham house heroes Groove Armada having their back catalogue given a good seeing to by Manchester's tape-wielding disco maniac, Greg Wilson. It's quality from the get go, starting with "The Girls Say" now reworked into an awesome early 80s synth funk workout that would make Rick James proud. "DIY Disco" is celebratory retro electro-disco at it's finest, while "Love Sweet Sound" is a happy-sad cowbell disco journey of immense proportions. Finally we end proceedings on old skool electro tip with 'Save Our Souls" sounding like a vocodered alien invasion.

Review: More gung-ho re-edit and rework business from the long-running Chopshop imprint, this time with a distinctly summery feel. As usual, there's plenty of variety, and tried-and-tested reworks that lock classic cuts into contemporary trends. Groove Motion gets things going with a distinctly dubbed-out take on Carly Simon's Balearic classic "Why" - think filters and delay aplenty - before Dave Gerrard delivers a sparkling, loopy dub of "Glow at Night" - all lazy jazz guitar solos, flexible disco bass, twinkling pianos and clipped guitars. Ilya Santana provides some decidedly dubby, quirky early '80s post-punk chunkiness in the shape of the excellent "Boomerang" (probably our pick), before Touchsoul instils some percussive swing and disco-funk sassiness to his late night delight "Mazed Projections".

Review: This latest release by Ill Advised is a perkier affair than we've come expect from DJ Butcher's edit label Chopshop of late. Yes its been slo-mo city round Chopshop towers recently, nowt wrong with that of course, but these four tracks are all peak time disco sizzlers where the likes of Christopher Cross and Elbow Bones' The Racketeers get edited to within an inch of their lives ("Ride The Wind", "New York Nights").

Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from re-edit/mash-up/rework specialists Chopshop; namely the kind of sophisticated, floor-friendly concoctions that appeal to both geeks and party-starters alike. This split EP features plenty more material to tickle the fancy of DJs, from the Clav-heavy disco groovery of Ill Advised's "Inside Out" (a smart Odyssey cover) and block party disco-funk of Captain Futuro ("Booty Express"), to the needless-but-fun Indeep cut-up "In The Mix" by Dave Gerrard. Best of all, though, is the fluid re-touch by Greg Wilson of DJ Butcher's "Music Turns Me On", a sweet cut-and-paste effort that's pitched just right.

Review: Chopshop boss DJ Butcher has never been afraid to share the wealth and this latest is release is no different, featuring four different producers with four different tunes. Butcher bravely steps up with the Eminem-meets-70s soul "Slim Shaddy", Ill Advised goes loop-crazy for the celestial funk joy of "Love Is What We Need" and Voodoo Whiskey goes for the bass twang jugular with "Suck My Sausage". Finally the curtain closes with the tight and sophisticated disco-funk inferno that is "Drama Queen". Hot stuff!

Review: For this latest Chopshop release, label boss DJ Butcher has decided to present a smorgasbord of his roster, the prime cuts if you will. Ill Advised presents the fast n' furious raw vintage funk of "Save Me", Leon Sweet's "Wasn't I Your Friend" is slower, more sensual and guitar-led, "Burn It Up" is straight outta the mid 80s with a digital sheen and linn drums aplenty and things wind up nicely with The Silver Rider's eccentric chant of "Baboon".

Review: Here Chopshop welcome Moplen to their clan with an introductory EP of re-jigs. It's an impressive start: "Ma Foom Bey" is brooding Afro house with a slightly Chi-town undercurrent, 80s disco staple "Ain't Nothin Goin On But The Rent" gets a respectful nip and tuck while "Cavern" ends things with a way-out and noodley adaptation of Liquid Liquid's "Cavern".

Review: Serial re-edit fiend Rayko enjoyed a busy 2012, releasing countless well-regarded EPs of floor-friendly electrofunk and disco rubs. Here he kicks off 2013 with a first solo outing on Chopshop. Like previous outings, it provides a quartet of synth heavy re-dubs and the odd peaktime re-cut (see the mostly instrumental take on The Whispers' "And The Beat Goes On"). Opener "Shake Your Body" is probably the standout, building a formidable electrofunk groove around thickset synths and heavy low-end. "Put The Freez On" ups the tempo and laces chunks of vocal over a particularly sweet and soul-flecked synth groove, while "Superman" rolls along on a Roger Troutman flex - all heavy P-funk synths and fancy talkbox vocals.

Review: For their latest release, DJ Butcher's much-loved bootleggy edit label Chopshop have secured hip disco dons Situation. They've not held back either, serving up four new tracks for our delight. It's a slo-mo affair, with most tracks under the 110 bpm mark; highlights include "Dance Boogie" which is based around that famous Steal My Sunshine sample, the blissed-out Latin funk of "Sweet Music" and the attitude-heavy snazzy disco grooves of "Unique Groove".

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: Chopshop Music joins a growing number of labels to endeavour to show their support following the recent devastation in Japan. This Re Birth compilation gathers up tracks from an impressive array of disco centric artists and will hopefully raise the funds that will have some positive effect on the country's attempts to recover. Included are fifteen tracks from the likes of Martin Brodin, Dead Rose Music Company, Tal M Klein and Space Ranger - with a variety of styles and tempos traversed from start to finish. Alongside the raft of edits there are some interesting original tracks present - not least "Kaneda" by Kompleks which features some nifty sampling of an animation classic!
