Review: The Dance Floor Outlaws like to portray themselves as gun-totin' breakbeat cowboys, sneakily giving the law the slip while laying down more highly illicit floor-bating mash-ups. Certainly, their particular brand of party-centric breaks - squeezed full of classic R&B, hip-hop, soul, rock and pop samples, and blessed with suitably gargantuan basslines - falls into the "instant floorfiller" category. Each of the four tracks here hits the spot, though it's the all-action lead cut, "Juke Box", that really resonates.

Review: Disco and cake... If there's a finer combination, we'll eat our servers. Not just a great name, though - this label knows sample science at a PhD level. That's p for party. Merrier than a man with a 24 pack of premium beer and swag bag of fireworks, this will rock socks off your dancefloor. "Power Boots" fractures Snap's original with nu-funk brutality, "Spinning Wheels" whisks us away on a retro waltz while "Wonderful World" takes Jimmy Cliff to territories he didn't even know existed. Climaxing the package with a rather clever Mighty Boosh sample, this is one sweet cake. Fancy a slice?

Review: Masters of the crafty art of bootlegism and funk edits, the not-so-pseudonymous Defkline and Red Polo get busy on four classics with crucial party-boosting results. "Space Cowboy" takes the Steve Miller classic and coats it with a whole slew of classic rhymers from ODB to Fiddy. "Turn The Beat Around" takes the disco classic of the same name and reboots it with chunky house 4/4. "It Ain't No Good", meanwhile, takes De La Soul and Chaka Khan's soul-blistered ballad and gives it just a cheeky mild skank. "Shystie's Disco" brings us to a fitting climax with ripples of glitterball-twisting electro boogie vibes.

Review: A DMC champ and a very tidy producer to boot, JFB makes his debut on the Disco Cakes label with three bass 'n' breaks bangers, led by the raw funk drums and hyper wobbles of "Fizzy Bubla" and backed up nicely by the Herbie Hancock-assisted "Cantaloopoo" and the deadly hip-hop flow of "Rock Your Goldfish".

Review: Back with their second release, Disco Cakes assemble a talented mix of breaks producers of all different styles and collect them on this new, funk-fuelled set. Tom Drummond and JMC have fun with Daft Punk's "Robot Rock" on "Again & Again & Again", while big soulful vocals can be found on The Dancefloor Outlaws "Get Your Boogie Down" and Delimentary's "Why Can't There Be Love". Slynk and Ed Solo meanwhile update Skee Lo's evergreen "I Wish" in a whole new breaks-tinted way.
