Review: Through his releases on Chopshop Music, DJ Butcher has proved to be a skilful practitioner when it comes to the party-starting end of disco edits and reworks. While he rarely resorts to cheap tricks or less than subtle percussion, his edits and re-cuts have a fun, effervescent quality that's sometimes at odds with current trends. This latest EP for Master Press offers more of the same joyous, fuss-free fodder with a cheeky glint in the eye. Lead cut "Love It" - a combination of samples from two or three jangly, summertime disco hits - is arguably the pick, though the squeezable electrofunk jams "Chinga" and "Get Down" are not far behind.

Review: There are plenty of words to describe producer Mr Bird and most of them are variants of the word 'funky'. This guy lives and breathes funky music, particularly re-edits and bootlegs. This newie features three different mixes of the one vocal funk track, "Everybody Knows". The original, "Nobody", is laid back 70s-style funk with fresh, modern production. The "Rambolage Space Is The Place mix", is a livelier outing with disco claps, bouncing bassline and luscious strings, and finally the Bird dub mix is a tweaked instrumental of the "Nobody mix".

Review: Aptly described by British producer Mr Bird as "rollerboogiespacediscofunk", latest tune "Skate Dancer" is indeed a b-boy banger that takes in a wide-range of influences - right down to the Funkadelic-esque group chorus. With some excellent boogie/cosmic funk remixes included from Azaxx, DJ Unite and B-Dub, this is a must for fans of hip-hop production and classic '70s funk.
