Review: Things have been a bit quiet from retro funk producer B Jam since his bumper packed eight-track EP last year on Midnight Riot. We can all relax now, as he's back with four new tracks under the attention grabbing title "Dog Slap". The rolling electro-funk stomper "Hide Out" gets things going nicely, and from there we see The Real Thing's disco staple "Can You Feel The Force" get a rocket up its backside and "The Magician" provide some breaky, rubber bass thrills, before "Talk About" wraps things up in a gloriously chopped up '80s electro-soul fashion.

Review: Iceland's BG Baarregaard has made a big impression on the nu-disco scene - already releasing on a plethora of hip labels (Audaz, Whiskey Disco, Editorial) since his arrival two years ago. Here joins up with Disco Dat for two sizzlers: the arpeggiated 4/4 synth-disco slammer "Play With Us", and the slinkier, glittery funk loops of "Pitch Black City". Classy!

The Void (re-work) - (6:43) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
Review: Hot on the heels of a recent, well received deep house excursion on Paper, Norwegian producer BG Baarregaard pops up on Swedish edit label DiscoDat with a pair of white hot scalpel reworks. "Out Of Space, Out Of Time" adds a heavy house pulse to Electrik Funk's 1982 Prelude classic "On A Journey", cleverly combining elements from the vocal and instrumental versions on a thrillingly spacey rework. "The Void" has more of a European feel, sounding like a cross between the muscular, arpeggio-heavy throb of Munich Machine, the tongue-in-cheek cheeriness of Italo-disco, and the melodious, organic feel of obscure Balearica. The results are both dancefloor-friendly and impressive, despite the laidback feel of the chiming melodies.

Review: Having previously plied his trade on Midnight Riot, Hot Digits and Hotbox Boogie, amongst others, Perth-based Casual Connections makes his debut for DiscoDat. Those familiar with his smooth, dubby and floor-friendly re-edits will feel right at home. Like fellow Aussie Rocco Raimiundo, Casual Connection is a master at looping and dubbing out forgotten '80s soul and electrofunk gems, giving them filter-heavy, house-friendly tweaks whilst retaining the essence of the original tracks. There's plenty to enjoy across the eight tracks featured here, from the re-imagined disco-funk shuffle of "Do Thangs" and horn-totin' throb of "Shake It", to the delay-laden boogie-dub antics of "Sugar" and string-drenched sweetness of "Do You Believe".

Review: We're not quite sure what Disco Tech is celebrating with the Anniversary Edits, but there's no doubting that it's a bumper collection, stuffed full of tried-and-tested dancefloor rearrangements. Across the 24 tracks, you'll find reworks of familiar favourites ("Dreadlock", "Jamaican Funk", 'Keep Forgettin"), and lesser-known gems ("I Like The Feeling", the deliriously elastic disco workout that is "You're A Winner"), as well as edits that span a wide range of moods and tempos. Highlights naturally come thick and fast, from the pitched-down, boogie-era reggae-disco of "Feel About U" (a killer edit of a tasty cover of an Evelyn "Champagne" King staple), to the subtly beefed up disco-funk strut of "Too Funkay").

Review: Its been a while since we've had the pleasure of a new installment in mister if-it-ain't-broke, Disco Tech's Funky Heroes series. Well, panic over - he's back and he's brandishing six new cuts, all of which are mercilessly aimed at the dancefloor. The level of quality is high, but our particular faves include the intense, jagged new wave funk of "You A Winner Babe", the love-lorn Caribbean lilt of "Feel About U" and the tropical Italo-disco of closer "Make Daddy Shook".

Review: Not much is known about Dr Packer but what we do know is that his sound is both inimitable and funky as hell. He's a straight-up edit man, full stop, and this time it's five roots reggae tunes which have been reshaped into more danceable forms. The opener "Someone Has My Number" is particularly groovy and fit for the summer months, but even the steppers, Shaka-style beat on "Chasing Devils" is pretty suited to your sunshine raving.

Review: Surgery Edits Vol 3 sees Aussie editor Dr Packer apply the knife to a selection of stone cold disco and funk classics. Extending and exciting at every opportunity, there's an emphatic headnod to the '80s throughout as we ignite with crisp revisions of both Jocelyn Brown's "Somebody Else's Guy" and Change's "Change Of Heart". As the doctor digs deeper we're treated to savage synth boogie badness by way of the slap-bass and horn heavy "Luv Ya Lady", a dubby dedication to George Benson's "Give Me The Night" and some cool filtered flurries on Lace's "Can't Play Around". Weighing in at near-album size, edit collections don't come much more extensive than this.

Review: Every one's favourite Deborah Harry rap gets a cosmic workshop makeover in Dr Packer's edit of Blondie's seminal "Rapture", the track that opens this sixth Surgery Edits release. Each track of this edition, as is the way with disco edits, hints to the listener where the track originally stem. And for some fun, we suggest you do some digging/guessing to find the origins of productions like "Oh What Wow", the crooning funk of "Just A Little More", and the legendary "One More Time". Light up your next party with the Best Surgery edits release yet.

Review: Whoever said that disco was dead was not aware of Dr Packer and his life-restoring scalpel skills. The cover of this eighth installment of edits reveals the good doc and colleagues hard at work resurrecting a giant disco ball and the sonic results can be heard on this mini-album. Highlights include the slinky clap-along, "Somebody Else", the noodle-bass moog boogie of "Xpand Your Mind" and the breaks-laden cocktail grind of "Tropical Jump". Good to hear disco has checked outta hospital and back on the dancefloor in full health.

Review: For a seventh time, Perth-based scalpel fiddler Dr Packer opens his surgery doors and invites us inside. As usual, his cheery, floor-friendly reworks strike the right balance between contemporary dancefloor chops (beefed-up bottom end, well-placed filters, and so on), and treating the source material with due reverence. Happily, there's not a duffer in sight, and even his reworks of stone cold classics (see Oliver Cheetham tweak "Friday's Enemy", First Choice revision "Love Doctor" and housed-up Evelyn 'Champagne' King stomper "Shame (VIP)") are different enough to be worthwhile additions to your collection. Highlights are plentiful, but check - in particular - the string-laden disco chug of "Ecstasy" and "Nightlife", a thickset '80s boogie rub full of sparkling synthesizers and heavy bass.

Review: Mysterious SoundCloud sensation Dr Packer returns with the follow-up to his popular Surgery Edits EP. His style - taking classic and little known disco, boogie and '80s soul jams and giving them a smooth, dubby deep house makeover - is undeniably attractive, and sympathetic enough to the original material to get the crate-diggers onside. There's plenty to excite among the six tracks showcased here, from the synth-bass laden sweetness of "Gimme Your Loving" and deep, soulful disco-house outing "2 The Bank", to the slap bass-boasting headiness of "Snap Shot" - all delay-laden vocal hits and hazy guitar solos - and wide-eyed disco release of "Running", whose source material should be familiar to all but the most inexperienced disco DJs.

Review: Antipodean disco dabbler, Dr Packer, will see you now. He's now reopened his surgery and this fifth volume is simply bursting with stuff that's good for you. There are eight new jams in total including the cheeky pop ragga of "Sensi", the well-oiled bass machine "Get Down" and electro-funk squelcher "One For Me". A fine remedy for any disco related ailment!

Review: Thwack! That's the sound of those rubber gloves being smacked on in preparation for the procedure that's about to commence. Don't worry though, it's not a cavity search, the mysterious Dr Packer is about to apply his precision scalpel skills to some vintage sounds in an operation bound to make these oldies seem younger, fresher, sexier, groovier. There are four incisions here, each as fine as the last. Highlights include the Hall & Oates goes Balearic roller "Want My Soul", the warm Italo goodness of "Smiling" and the swishy Loveboat-isms of "Give It All You Got".

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: Stockholm's Discodat label is pushing a Scandinavian sound that's pretty distant from the kind of Scandi EDM floating about these days. With this debut from Nordstorm though, the label ventures a little from their soul/funk/disco re-edit ethos into more deep synthpop territory. The Jessie Ware-esque "All We Need" is dripping in luxuriant mid '80s pop-dance production, "Set It Out" is beyond smooth - heavy layers of snow-washed keyboards fizzing over a Balearic backdrop. Finally "Clair De Reve" is an orgy of bass and DX7 pads; just think 'Miami Vice club scene' and you'll get the picture. Slick.

Review: After putting out three Mixed Bags on Wall Of Fame and other material for Hot Digits, FKR and Editorial, P Sol lands on DiscoDat! His entrance is a laid back one with the lazy Sunday vibes of "You Left Me", while "Six Machine" is amplified funk with trumpeting horns, walking basslines and sassy vocals. "Not Easy" ventures down a soul route leaving the flutey "Harlem River Drive" to seal the deal of a great four-track release.

Review: Disco Tech's re-edit label DiscoDat has earned itself a strong reputation due to its relentless stream of high quality reworks. Here, on the Metropolis EP, they look towards Fritz Lang for some inspiration, but beyond the titles and cover, the mysterious Rare Cuts stick to '70s grooves. There are four tracks to immerse yourself in, with our favourites being the smooth and jazzy soul ballad "Sweetest Pain" and the suspended tension of tight and funky space jam "Get It Up".

Well, it's true, and here, Alexander Chebankov aka Sunner Soul delivers three more sizzlers to keep the frostbite at bay. This time produced without his pal Banana Lover, "Hey" is all laid back and loungey guitar funk, "Mysterious Investigator" is seriously cool bass and bongos driven disco-fizz and "Street Madness" wraps things up with shimmering and golden phaser-heavy looped grooves. Hot!

Review: Serbian disco head Tonbe has previously impressed with a string of EPs in which he effortlessly joins the dots between disco, funk, soul and house. On this debut album, he's at it again, delivering a 10-track collection of contemporary disco-funk jams smothered in clipped guitars, rubbery basslines, sturdy house beats and rasping horns. While the formula is simple, the results are never less than excellent. From the winding flute solo and double bass pressure of "Double Bass Rules" and loose funk shuffle of "Horny & Sexy", to the smooth Hammond and swinging beats of "Raw Taste", Detective's Story is a veritable sprint through head-nodding, toe-tapping, hip-wigglin' dancefloor goodness.

Summer Education - (6:40) 117 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic returns with another three reasons to be cheerful, and an EP bristling with classic funk, soul, disco and boogie touches. His formula - head-nodding house blended with edit style loops and neat musical touches - rarely fails to deliver the sort of rock solid grooves guaranteed to ignite the dance. Here, the real killer is arguably "Funkstar", a thickset fusion of sturdy house grooves, clipped funk guitars, sprightly horns and gritty bass. That's not to say the other two tracks aren't hot, mind; "For My People" is a groovesome chunk of jazz-funk goodness (with house bottom end), while the drifting horns, loose rhythms, eyes-shut guitar solos and rolling Hammond organs of "Summer Education" are every bit as intoxicating.

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: 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: 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.
