Review: As the title suggests, this five-tracker from the previously re-edit-happy Editorial imprint showcases slo-mo disco/house crossover cuts from a selection of mostly little-known producers (the fast-rising Matthew Kyle aside). For those who've been digging the superb releases of labels like Sleazy Beats, Wolf Music and Instruments Of Rapture, Slo-Motion Potion comes highly recommended. It's largely impressive stuff, with DJ Butcher's epic "Shake Your Body", Kyle's deliciously sensual "Off My Mind" and 78 Edits' heady opener "Come On Baby" standing out. That said, the whole package is well worth a listen.

Review: The Editorial re-edit label have a deep sense of purpose and that is to hunt down as many top notch spliced and diced classics and release them quick smart. With over 20 releases in just a few years, they must be pretty good at their job. DJ Steef begins proceedings with the slow and loungey "Rising South Coast", before the temperature rises with the guitar-driven and string-laden funk of DJ Moar's 'Funky French' really starts the party. Things get slow and saucy again though, on Hotbox's "Can't Get Enough" before we get in a sublime disco-house spin with Thomass Jackson's "Luv Doctor". Things end in an upbeat fashion with "Music Is Love" an early 70s slow funk anthem re-tweaked by Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee.

Review: The scalpel fiends and rework hounds behind the Editorial label rarely disappoint, and this latest split EP is packed with floor-friendly midtempo goodies. The most revelatory cut of all is Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee's "Slow Fire", a delicious 109 BPM bumper that re-casts Gwen McRae's electrofunk-era disco bomb as a stoned head-nodder. It works so well that you wonder why nobody's done it before. Elsewhere, there's some sweet groovery from Feza, a surprisingly percussive disco-funk jam from the usually dawdling 78 Edits, and a decidedly Balearic jazz-funk excursion from Manmademusic and Freshtone. Really, it's only the usually on-point B-Jam who lets the side down with the so-so "Everyday".

Review: There's something admirable about the no-nonsense approach of the Editorial camp. While steeped in a deep love of the disco sound and the genre's deep history, the edits and reworks they release are first and foremost tried-and-tested dancefloor bumpers. The four cuts here are a great case in point. Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee's "Do It One More Time" is a hustlin', low-slung treat (recasting Harvey Mason's "Groovin You" as a sweaty chugger), while Rabo & Snob's "Camel Filter" romps along on a formidable disco-funk flex. The biggest surprise, though is Vinyladdicted's "Alright", a rush-inducing chunk of Balearic disco.

Review: Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee are arguably Editorial's most overworked duo; rarely a release slips out of the label's clandestine, underground HQ without at least one of their sneaky re-cuts on it. Here, they deliver two smart and sassy re-interpretations. The first, "Inner City", is a dubby, jazzy take on Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)" that profits from some booming house bottom end. "Magic", on the other hand, has a delightful looseness - all lazy, loping breaks, sweet jazz guitars and rasping horns. Another solid Editorial EP is completed by Virgin Magnetic Material's "Fly", a faithfully Balearic re-incarnation of Steve Miller Band's "Fly Like An Eagle".

Review: Having previously danced the night away, the extended musical family behind the Editorial imprint sit down together for a nice spot of Sunday Brunch. In practice, that means a slightly deeper, groovier flex than some previous outings. There's plenty to enjoy, though, from the low-slung mutant nu-disco of JKriv's "Something Special" and the tumbling goodness of Sonicvibe's "Wet Level" (based on Rick James' "Cold Blooded"), to the original boogie sweetness of DJ Butcher's "All My Dub" (a much-needed tweak of Major Harris's long-forgotten "All My Life"). Of course, there are a couple of peaktime stompers, with Feza's Bohannon-ish "Feel Like" standing out.

Review: With Valentines Day just around the corner, Editorial changes tack and takes a step into the world of loved-up, slo-mo groovery. It's a smart move. They've got some great up-and-coming producers involved, with Matthew Kyle's pal Joseph Terruel and Aussie moustache man Rocco Raimundo both offering deliciously deep, spine-tingling rubs. The latter's epic, filter-heavy "Looking For You" is arguably one of the best things he's done to date - a sinewy, string-laden disco slow dance that should impress all but the most miserable of disco purists. Heion's "Run" and DJ Steef's "I Can Win" are gorgeous, too, offering loopy, bass-heavy grooves with just the right amount of lip-smacking charm.

Review: Nu disco re-edit label Editorial seem to be continuing on their recent deep slo-mo direction. Their fifth label comp/EP sees them in fine fettle, with Sellouts delivering the deep n loopy "Satisfy" (a deceptively powerful dancefloor builder), Deep&Disco's "Otis Held Tight" is a beautifully sparse yet soulful outing, Manuel Shagun's "So Good" provides an amazing glammy disco stomp, riddled with samples and all the better for it, while the party winds up with the cruising blue sky funk of The Noodleman's "3rd Time".

Review: This seven-track collection of disco re-edits from the Editorial camp has a lot to offer - not least previously unreleased cuts from fast-rising scalpel starlets Matthew 'MK' Kyle and Rayko. It's Kyle who steals the show, laying down a typically groovesome deep house/disco cut that boasts some particularly blissful jazz-funk guitar samples. Rayko's cut - a dancefloor-friendly re-dub of "What Did You Do To Me?" - is as solid and playable as you'd expect. Elsewhere, debutant Noodleman excels with the deep fried cosmic funk of "Teachin' & Tryin", and Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee bring the heavyweight party flavours with "Get Some".

Review: On the back of their decidedly smoochy Show Me Love EP, the scalpel fiends and disco/house crossover monkeys at Editorial HQ take another trip into the world of soft-focus groovery. As usual, there's plenty of decidedly touchy-feely fare to enjoy, from the tough bass and twinkling synths of Elias Tzikas' "Just For You" and Tiger & Woods-on-valium vibes of Sellouts' "Let Me Work", to the sensual, slo-mo soul of Get Down Edits' "Two-Timin' Lady". The ever-cheeky Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee pair up for a silly, delay-laden re-tweak of the Knight Rider theme tune (really), whilst Debonair offers up a slick chunk of rush-inducing disco-house loveliness. Top stuff.

Review: Sneaky re-edit imprint Editorial likes to offer good value. As with previous releases, "Cross Corner" features no less than six floor-friendly reworks to satisfy the needs of all but the pickiest disco divas. While there are a couple of merely solid versions of well-known hits (Grace Jones and Marvin Gaye both get cut-up), there are far more high quality re-arrangements of lesser-known gems. Of particular interest are the contributions from The Legendary 1979 Orchestra and Manmademusic, both of whom wonderfully stretch out soul-flecked disco gems with inch-perfect precision.

Review: The Editorial crew present their 18th release in less than two years, and it's another bumper selection of scalpel jobs primed for house dancefloors. 78 Edits opens proceedings with a typical slow burner, before DJ Steef delivers one of the highlights - a simmering soul chugger that rises and falls in all the right places. The Candy Dealers opt for a super dubbed-out electrofunk vibe on their vast "Don't Stop", before DJ Butcher provides some sturdy, floor-friendly fare in the shape of "Clap & Stomp". The undisputed highlight, though, is The Lonely Smoker's "Keep The Same", a loopy, chunky version of Thelma Jones' soul classic "How Long" that's got serious chops.

Review: This time round, fast-fingered re-edit evangelists Editorial have set their sights on breathing new life into dusty, obscure and occasionally much-played soul nuggets. Those with a passion for the dubbed-out, slo-mo end of the contemporary re-edit scene will enjoy 78 Edits' typically hypnotic "Slick" and DJ Raw Sugar's charmer "Barry Me Softly" (yep, the Walrus of Love gets a tweak). If you like your grooves a little more uptempo, you'll devour Disco Tech's delightful "Tight Money" - an unlikely anthem in waiting, we reckon - and Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee's dubby disco-funk groover "Movin". It all adds up to an impressive selection of well thought-out reworks.

Review: Editorial, the label who profess to wanting 'to make you move.... slowly, and with purpose', are back with the 19th instalment in their disco edit series. Containing six tracks of summery re-jigged fun, the EP kicks off with Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee's "Glow Of Dub'. Further highlights include the 70s porno-funk of B-Jam's "Infinity", the Herb-Alpert-does-The- Loveboat vibe of "What Makes You Believe" by The Lonely smoker, but it's Copycat's 'Heaven Or Hell", with it's killer arpeggiated riff and steel drums that's true gem here.
