Review: Despite delivering a smattering of original nu-disco productions over the years, producer Disco Tech is probably most famous for his sneaky but relatively faithful reworks of classic funk, soul and disco cuts. Here he returns to the re-edit field, reworking more sweet soul and funk jams. "Waiting On You" delivers a slick, floor-friendly take on Al Green, while "Devil's Work" subtly tweaks a midtempo funk-soul gem. More revolutionary is "You Got The Stuff", a formidably loopy chugger that ekes maximum joy out of a delicious groove. Elsewhere, check the suitably slow and dewy-eyed "Inside Is Love" and "Take Me As I Am".

Review: A classy set of rerubs from the Disco Tech crew - this time adding some subtle beats to b-boy classics like Gwen McCrae's "90% of Me Is You" and Wendy Rene's "After Laughter Comes Tears" (sampled by the Wu-Tang and recently rejigged by Nicolas Jaar too). There's also tasty beefed-up versions of Al Green and UK soul man Eddy Grant too.

Review: Having been in the game since 1996, Portsmouth-based nu-disco DJ Gregg Holmes knows a thing or two about slick disco re-edits. Here, under his Fingerman alias, he treats us to five vintage reworks. "2 Remember" takes good old Shalamar, stretches them out and wraps them in disco swishes, with more claps than a standing ovation. Elsewhere, Teena Marie's "I Need Your Lovin'" gets gently teased and filtered on "Just A Little Luv". Bloodstone get extra electronic percussion on "Stronger Love" and The Chi-Lites get a dirty house workover on "Move That Bottom".

Review: Since launching earlier this year, Disco Tech's DiscoDat label has picked up a lot of attention within the re-edit community. Here, Disco Tech gathers together a bunch of previously unreleased reworks from some of his pals in the scene. It's a good collection, variously alternating between dubbed-out slo-mo soul (see his own "Stormy", Reflex's "Thrill Is Gone" and Andrew Clarke's excellent "Mellow Blow") and dancefloor disco (Steef's "Whole Lotta Love", B-Jam's cut-up gem "Seen It All"). He also finds space for Copycat's excellent "You'll Like It Too", a gospel-tinged soulful number that should impress all those who like their disco soulful, musical and uplifting.

Review: Proving that's there's still life in old re-edit disco dog yet, the guys at fledgling label DiscoDat continue their ascent with a second instalment in this series. Aiming to collect unreleased reworks from the players on the re-edit scene, this album boasts, amongst others, Karim's fleshed-out rework of Millie Jackson's "Keep The Homefires Burnin", Copycat's extended "Lovely Day" by Bill Withers and label boss himself, Disco Tech's teased-out version of Sister Sledges' 'Pretty Baby".

Review: DiscoDat continue on their quest to retweak every song from the 1970s charts with another EP, this time by Vinyladdicted; and why not? Sometimes it can actually improve on the original, as in the case of Dr Hook's mid 70s mustachioed romp, "Sexy Eyes", which gets looped and beefed up here. "Don't Break My Heart" soups a little known 1980 anthem by Tonee & Bill Collins, "Miss Ya" is sweet holiday funk but it's a hypnotic reworking of Hot Chocolate's "Stay With Me" that really hits the spot.
