Review: Here's an interesting one from the ever-reliable Grimy Edits - is it an edit or a mash-up? Who knows, but "Words" is a seductive blend of Tina Weymouth's new wave vocals from Tom Tom Club's classic "Wordy Rappinghood" and some seriously slinky disco funk. If the vocals aren't your thing there's a dub version included, but really it's all about the vocals.

Review: It's a family affair as Grimy returns with heat from the windy city known for amazing dance edits. Tim McAllister takes it out the gate with "Rollin'", a classic soul/disco beater replete with joyous flute trills, Leslie speaker efx and a pumping house kick. In-demand newcomer Cratebug's "Get Up Move Your Body" is a spacious, cosmic edit of a little-remembered Canadian gem. The song ends with an intuitive synth jam that will be enjoyed by DJs and home listeners alike. Longtime Grimy associate Rahaan ends things with a bang. His largely original "Buari Traxx" mixes Ghanaian rhythms with killer disco bass and the nuanced, tracky drum programming you could find on a DanceMania record. The brilliant track is built for the floor and also serves as an apt transition into Grimy Trax, a sister label that will release all new music. Chicago's still burning.

Review: The highly anticipated release of Grimy Edits Vol. 6 is here with the type of monster edits you'd expect from GRIMY! On this sixth volume of the popular edit series you have Veteran Chicago DJs Zernell & Rahaan bringing the heat with Rahaan's supercharged version of Rebound as the 1st track, coupled with the Zernell - Rahaan collaboration of an obscure B-side Latin Disco / Break Beat Jam perfectly titled WHAT! Joined on the flip side of the release is veteran edit master Tim McAllister of M.I.L.C. Music fame who takes a lesser known JB 7" and transforms it into the dance foor killer titled "I Need Help!".

Review: Grimy Edits stalwarts Zernell and Goodking are back with more re-workings of the soundtracks to long-lost disco nights. "Big Time" is a killer looped accelerator with slick guitar licks and female chanting. "Strivin" is ironically, more laid back with a swingin' slap groove that flowers into a lovely melodic chorus and finally "Get Down" ends things with an intense cowbells 'n' wah-wah funk guitar jam.

Review: There's something faithfully fuzzy about the Grimy Edits series. Clearly inspired by Rahaan's scalpel-heavy reworks and the crusty grooves of Theo Parrish's Ugly Edits series, there's a loose authenticity throughout that should appeal to crate-digging disco heads. "Who Can I Turn To" sets the tone, delivering a percussive rework of an unfamiliar lights-out, disco-soul anthem. It's an undeniably sweaty in that "shirts off" way that only a particular kind of disco can be. The faster "Freakin" brilliantly flits between heavy disco-funk breaks and the sharp strings of its source material, while "Keep On Running" rides a way of soaring horns, heavy percussion and breathless vocals.
