Review: Hellenic disco label Timewarp has been riding the boogie train for many years now, but when will a cut from label boss Angelos Stoumpos (aka Timewarp) ever arrive? Well now, that's when! Here he finally three jams, all connected by one common root - dub. Stoumpos is joined by half Greek/half French vocalist Georges Perin on opener, the fruity and fresh "Tropicaliente". Elsewhere, "Reggae On Dope" is thrilling mish-mash of gypsy rhythms and panpipe action and the smooth "Dub in Disco" is just that - hazy 4/4 spaced out grooves. There's even an instrumental version of the title track included to keep those headnodding vibes going.

Review: Greece's Quincy Jointz selects the sixth volume of his concept Lime Sorbet compilation. Lime Sorbet was always the compilation series for open minded music fans and so is also volume six. From sunshine vibes, funky grooves and breakbeat through to house or downbeat. Once again Quincy selects a special mixture of unreleased music by well-known and upcoming artists. Block rockin' beats courtesy of Valique with "Long Journey" (Quincy Jointz remix) will sort you for deep funk, cheeky crooner Louie Austen is back since the electroclash days with the sleazy soul of of "Make You Move" (Quincy Jointz remix) and Stuttgart's Tobe Tronic serves up the deep, breaks driven nu-disco of "Night Drums".

Review: Although he's enjoyed covert missions for other labels like Royal Soul and Kraak, Stephane "Leon" Voituret can usually be found on Greece's mighty Timewarp label. Here he returns to the label he calls home with a vaguely James Bond-ish themed long player. There seven new tunes, should you wish to accept them, and don't worry - they won't self-destruct after you've played them. Oh no -they'll just keep delivering the disco action. Highlights include the ravey 60s psyche-out of the title track, the Austin Powers meets Man From UNCLE riff-ola of "Get On The Boat" and the bhangra-meets-garage-rock of "Sexy Toy".

Review: Mister T just don't give a damn. This mysterious and humorously quirky artist has been dominating our funk charts like a pro over the past few years, and this new EP for Timewarp is no different than his usual bag of quality tricks. Lucy Lune Gillespie features as the lead vocalist on the groovy little number named "The Heart Grows Fonder", which is followed by the boogie-tastic number "Gamma Rays". "The Gospel Way" is a soulful, marching breakbeat attack, while "Funk Ground" breaks out the funk breaks - guitar fuzz and all!

Review: They say an artist's muse can be refreshed following the release of a retrospective collection. Afternoons In Stereo (aka Greg Vickers) has been silent since the release of Retrospective in 2015, but now he returns with new long player, Echo Valley. Listening to these 13 tracks it's clear to see that he's found a new freshness to his sound. Highlights include the sombre, wafting lament "Eames In Dub", the wah-wah laden "Redondo Beach" that gets its 70s strut on and the wistful, breezy Balearica of "King Of The Iron Coast". So then, in short; a whole new shiny chapter for Vickers.

Review: The Timewarp label are one of this outfits who care more for diversity than they do about specialising in one particular genre. Through artists like Afternoons In Stereo or Afroqben, they've established their place as a label who can offer something way beyond the dance floor format, and into the varied and imperceptible genre we refer to as 'nu-jazz'. Mister T & Lucy Lune Gillespie are pretty much first-timers to the scene, but their debut EP, Retro Respect, suggests these two have been producing some serious music for a while. These six tracks are both a pleasure to the ear, and offer something different with each new verse; "Mental Playthings", for instance, is stuck between jazz-dance and house, while "Retro Respect" itself is a funky, swingy little number the recalls the 50s jazz smoke, and "Blame It On Me" steps away with some tasty little breakbeats. Lovely.

Review: Mark Ronson can keep his Uptown Funk pastiche, because DJ Inko is here with some of the original stuff. "Big Brawl" features rolling bass and tight Prince-like guitar licks, "Alley Cat" fuses disco house with vintage clavinet driven boogie, "Buzzer" boasts bass of the elastic variety and wah-wah guitar overload for some flares-flappin' action and finally "Pusherman" adds some electronic funk to mix for real dancefloor demolition. Mark who, again?

Review: Greece's Timewarp label continues to plunder their disco reserves whilst flashing the proverbial funky cash willy-nilly. Yes we have another 16 fresh cuts (admittedly down from the last instalment's 31 so they should maybe think about tightening their wallets a little) on Freestyle 4 Funk 5. Timewarp is once again selector and some the many highlights he chosen here include the digi dancehall headnodder "Fyah Fyah" by Balkan Riddims, Jyal Funk's pulsating breaky electro rework of "Jamaican" by Funky Destination and the breathy jazzy shuffle of "Sensitive Kind" by Truez.

Review: Greek disco producer Timewarp teams up with an anonymous pal from funk blog extraordinaire, The Zuzu Club, for this compilation that's exclusively about 'great and fresh' new music. Although there's no theme they do look across the water to the Caribbean for some inspiration on the likes of the laid back reggae lament of "Theory Of Revolution" and the smooth dancehall grooves of "Baby Got Me Good". Elsewhere we encounter vintage electro-swing on Pavlov's "Moving Next Door", retro lounge-rock on "Jesu" By Loopez and even some good old big beat on "Jungle Boogie" by Chinese Man.

Review: One time funk/breaks producer turned party edit king, Valique, is not one to be burdened with the responsibilities that come with artistic credibility. This guy just wants to have a good time, and here on V-Shaped, a compilation of some of his best remixes, he provides 12 demonstrations of this philosophy. Highlights include his deliciously dreamy synth-disco rework of Kraak & Smaak's "How We Gonna Stop The Time", the accelerated swing/jazz minimal house of the "Dark Jazz Dub" by Nekta and his tough electro-funk remix of "Disco Life" by Basement Freaks. An impressive back catalogue indeed!

Review: We've hardly heard from Timewarp's Leon since last summer, but now he's back with possibly his most commercial offering yet. "People Like Fashion" is an unashamed party soul ditty, with campy, sing-along recitals of big fashion label names. Sure to get people pulling some moves even the stiffest dancefloor. Elsewhere the title track is more authentic 80s electro-boogie, "Reality" is unreal soft focus 70s disco and "Song For Lou" is like Chris Rea soloing over a hazy soft porn soundtrack. What's not to love?

Review: After a slew of remixes and reversions and revisions, Greek funk dub troupe Timewarp return with two beautiful originals. "Theory Of Revolution" is a warm, organic groove that's coated in smoky croaky vocals from Georges Perin and peppered in guitar and melodica instrumentation. "Liberty Is Our Destiny" is a more upbeat track that's highly reminiscent of Fort Knox Five with its uptown breaks, nifty scratching and dubby washes. Complete with two dub versions, Timewarp leave no sonic stone unturned right here.

Review: Greg Vickers aka Afternoons In Stereo is a master at the art of electronica and all things downtempo. Over the years, the majority of his output has come out through the Timewarp label, to which he returns to at present with Retrospective, a collection of his own favourite productions from the last ten years. In there, you'll find his inimitable take on IDM and electro, most vividly represented by classics such as "El Puma", "Metrosexual", or the utterly memorable "Tinto Brass", a favourite around these parts.

Review: It's been ten years since disco and funk fusionist Angelos Stoumpos and his band of musical merry men delivered the first Timewarp Inc album, Dub My Funky Groove. Ever since, they've been in-demand on the remix circuit. Having previously put out two volumes of the Remix Sessions to showcase their reworks, here they offer up a third instalment. There's plenty to get excited about, from the dense, Latin-influenced tribal disco-house madness of their remix of Dublex Inc's "Tango Forte", and a rubbery rework of DJ Maxx and Gabb's "Afrovibes", to the bass-heavy nu-funk of their 'short remix' of Deep Dive Corp's "Blue".

Review: Unhappy with the amount of re-edits and mash-ups in the nu-disco scene, Timewarp are doing something about it! That 'something' is the Lemon Sorbet series of mixes curated by the one and only Quincy Jointz. Featuring some of the finest original compositions, many until now unreleased, from leading nu funk artists. Highlights of volume 5 include the retro new jack urban beats of Jointz own Flashbaxx remix, Ashley Slater (Freak Power)'s low-slung and slinky Al Green cover "Stay Together" and the cool, slap-bass heavy, Latino disco jam "New York To Brasil" by DJ Colour C2. Who said originality was dead.

Compiling a selection of his finest reworks of artists such as Afternoons In Stereo, MustBeat Crew, Timewarp Inc and Trotter, he certainly serves up a tasty big beat buffet. Highlights of the 14 tracks include the bluesy afternoon haze of "Passion", the electronic spikiness of Latin lounge classic "Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps" and the hip-house/ ska-hop party anthem, "Cop Dat Shit".

Review: Swiss slicker Banderas returns to Timewarp with two smouldering breakbeat funk originals. "Handbrake" is a horn-heavy exercise in contrasts as we're hyped into a sweaty mess on the Budos Band-style builds before dropping into smooth Skweewif-style main groove. "Faro", meanwhile, takes us into a more dramatic, car-chase experience as we're pursued across the musical metropolis by firing flutes and tightly plucked guitars. Remix-wise, "Handbrake" gets the treatment from Timewarp Inc (samba-style rocksteadiness) and Trotter (Brownswood jazz style) while "Faro" gets the rub from Quincy Jointz (Afrobeat stomp hypnosis) and Fata & Morgana (Italo-angled cosmic heaven). Take two? We'll take all six please.

Review: Croatia's Funky Destination (aka Vladimir Sivic) has made a big splash on the funky breaks scene appearing on a variety of well renowned labels. However, the honour releasing his new long player, Supersonic Bomb, has fallen on the mighty Timewarp. Normally known for their nu-disco sound, the Grecian label has taken a chance on these 16 organic funk jams, and it's paid off! Highlights include the bubblin' piano boogie of "Getting Higher", the luxuriously silky "Eternal Light" and the fuzzy, breaky, disco house of "Get Up".

Review: We've all experienced an 'economic boom' of some sort during the course of this recent recession, none more so than the Greeks. Here, despite the title, Greek nu-disco label Timewarp thankfully deliver more of a sonic boom. The title track kicks things of with a mid tempo breaky dub workout with an uplifting flow from vocalist The Mage. The Ragga Twins step up to the mic and up the fierceness on "Pump The Style", whilst "Economic Boom" gets remixed by Balkan Riddims adding some killer bottom end and Jazz K Lipa who adds some breaky punch.

Following a recent project that saw a lot of his back catalogue remixed and retweaked, Jointz is now back with some new party ammunition. "Rock On" is a short and sweet, poppy breaks-driven hoot that gets a jazzy house makeover by Diesler. Elsewhere Mister T goes to town on the organ and tough beats whilst and Tobe Tronic ends thing on a heavy electro-breaks tip.

Review: While most funk, blues or soul minded producers will instantly dive to the sampler for inspiration, here we find an authentic document of freshness. A guttural bluegrass hoe-down written by Tony Bate (with his tongue just slightly in cheek), Dubstax has taken the folky, Howlin Wolf style original and added a lolloping bassline, strutting beats and a series of dubbed out synths to create the perfect fusion of songwriting techniques, old and new. Serious party vibes... We'd advise you to wiggle it. Just a little bit.

Review: It seems that Timewarp's rare funk compilations are like buses: you wait ages then three arrive at once. Well, not quite - the second instalment in this series arrived two years ago, precisely half the time between that and the first one. So by our calculations the next one should arrive in a year's time. That gives us just enough time to fully absorb all 31 bangers featured here, including the backbeat swagger of "Ghetto Drunk", the shimmering '70s glamour of "Soul Sugar" and the lush, luxury disco of Timewarp's own remix of "Afrofunk".

Review: Anyone who spent time lounging around outside a beachside Mediterranean bar last summer will have no doubt heard the sun-kissed Balearic shuffle of Bonnie & Klein's "No Escape". Here, they bring their particularly brand of horizontal, nu-disco influenced house to Timewarp. "Disco Size" sees them in LTJ Experience style slow-house mode, lacing pitched-down disco and soul samples over a sumptuous, 100 BPM groove. The looser "Sexy" has distinct funk and soul influences - check the lazy guitars and sampled horns - but retains a similar head-nodding feel. Finally, "Get Up" moves further towards the funk, whilst retaining a decidedly Balearic sensibility.

There's nine different takes supplied here, the best including Quincy Jointz's urgent jazzy souler which is also turned into a spellbinding minimal tech-house anthem by Valique.

Review: German DJ/producer Quincy Jointz has been strutting his funky stuff behind the decks since 2003. He's struck up a close bond with Greece's Timewarp in particular, so much so in fact that he's back with his fourth mix album for them! "Lime Sorbet Vol IV" sees the guy condense 18 tracks into an hour-long mix, which is quite a journey indeed. The individual tracks are also included here in full, highlights of which include the Junkie XL-ish "Pray", the bouncy electro-pop meets retro rap of "Summertime (remix)" and the electro-funk-breaks of "Do You Want More Ah".

Review: Having first made his name with rasping funk breaks, Valique has in recent years focused more on disco and house. Here, he delivers his most deep house focused release yet, a sumptuous collection of recent remixes. Predictably, there's plenty to enjoy, from the midtempo deep house/nu-disco/deep funk fusion of Valique's "Future Boogie" remix of Dr Cuts' "Red Hot Chilli Cuts", to the piano-laden deep house bump of his "Anthem" mix of Funky Destination's "Down To The Music". Best of all, though, is the twisted 303 funk and piano solo madness of Valique's "Less Swing" remix of Emmanuel Bravo's "Little Swing".

Review: Bootleg mash-up specialist turned funk breaks heavyweight Zamali returns with "The Rebirth", an expansive EP packed with well-crafted, floor-friendly goodies. "Funky Rotator" sets the tone, offering just the right balance between spiralling Hammond funk, shuffling drum breaks and melodic sweetness. Punchier dancefloor fare can be found in the shape of "Far Far West" and Time To Sleep", while "Loose Control" [sic] and "Is It Worth It" drop the tempo, expertly adding a welter of soul and funk instruments for added pleasure. The EP also includes a number of tasty remixes, with the sweaty funk beats, spiralling trumpets and low slung bass of Mister T's "Funk Rotator" rework standing out.

Review: Greece's Timewarp drops the second installment of the Jointz Venture remix series, and my word have they done things right! It's a beautiful bundle of funk, breaks and party tools, all geared up for heavy club use; starting with Tom Drummond's electro/broken beat hybrid remix of "Blast", it goes all the way through to JazzKlipa's remix of "Bodyline" - a straight electrohouse chaser with a hint of boogie - via Aenea's sultry deep house vibe on "Get Down" and a few other surprises. Highly recommended...

Review: Few albums are so rich in funk and soul they can spawn two worthwhile remix albums, but few outfits run the groove gamut with the same authenticity and clout as Timewarp's in-house production team. Whisking the original off to far-away party pastures, each version brings a whole new lease of life to the originals. From the mesmerising percussion and sharp organ blasts of Soopasoul's take on "Ghetto Drunk" to MSdoS's jazz-flecked D&B twist on "Bullshit" via the deep space cosmic funk bubbles of Angel Funke's remix of "Hipsko", each of these resonates with quintessential remix science.

Review: It's been a while since we heard from Danny Ward, at least under his Dubble D alias (he's better known for his house productions under the Moodymanc moniker). "Thud" is a pleasing blast from the past - a rolling, dancefloor-friendly workout that matches snappy, MPC-programmed hip-hop beats with warm Rhodes codas, subtle whispers of jazz flute and carefully-chosen vocal samples. The remixes are tasty, too, with EZ Icarus recruiting MC J Conroy for an uptempo party-rocking workout, Tosses & Verdez dropping some tasteful breaks, and Widosub turning the original into a warm, jazzy, broken beat number.

Review: It seems like ages since we've had some good old-fashioned soul from Athenian mellow-vibes label, Timewarp. Well, wait no longer: we now have three new bangers (or whatever the '70s equivalent was called) from the aptly named Funky Destination. The shuffle and clap-led, piano looped anthem "Down To The Music" kicks things off with some leather-lunged vocals, while "Vintage Satisfaction" is a battle royale between a hammond organ, a sharp guitar and a rogue sax (oh, and a rapper too). Finally "United Colours Of The Sun" ends things on a hazy and infectious loungey Latino tip.

Review: The Worldstylers (a brand new act from Savages Y Suefo) deliver two absolute party-jammers. Exploring the creative potential of blues and electronic fusion, both "Put It Right Here" and "Gimme One More" are riddled with rich vocals, heaving harmonicas and big swinging bass. The former is the stomper of the pair with a jacking, 4/4 stomp while the latter takes the nu-funk route with swinging breakbeats and a cool-but-confident groove. Both absolutely smash it. Throw in myriad remixes from the likes of Ordiman (filtered funky house) and Niles Philips (Thievery Corporation style slinky silk) and this really is a special package.

Review: The term 'liquid gold' has been many things, including the name of a '70s disco act and a type of head-rushing party poppers. Now, it's also an album by funky hip-hop and Afro-Cuban US artist AfroQBen (see what he did there?). The album actually came out last year and now Timewarp have decided that it deserves the remix treatment. The reggae, funk, Latin and soul vibes of the original are tweaked in a number of interesting ways, in particular the electro/reggaeton hybrid of Qdup Foundation's mix, Father Funk's electro-boogie-isms and Drumspyder's Bollywood beats.

Review: We're not quite sure why this German funk meister is so enthralled by lime sorbet in particular (other than that it tastes nice), but that is what he has chosen to dub his popular mix series. This third installment packs in a hefty 18 tracks and is available both as a continuous mix and as individual tracks too. Highlights include the mini Moog workout of QZ's remix of James Beige, the high-energy riff-o-rama of "Monsterjam" and the effervescent disco-funk of "This Sound".

Review: Originally released back in February, "Ghetto Drunk" is an in-house album from renowned Athenian funk/nu-disco label Timewarp. The record covers a host of styles from trip-hop to house, and now the net is flung wider with a host of producers enlisted to remix it on this spin-off release. In addition to the previous styles, here we also get some sassy swing breakers ("Bullshit" Niles Phillips mix), electro-disco sizzlers ("Yuil Disco Breaks" Valique remix) and perplexing acid-funk on the 'acidisco' version of the title track.

Review: If it ain't broke don't fix it as they say, and this Euro party edits producer is certainly living by this maxim. Here we find the talented producer providing Greek label Timewarp with a selection of his reworks of disco obscurities. As usual it's hard to not want to get up dance to his infectious remixes including the pulsating, arpeggiated 80s night drive of "Yull Disco Breaks (instrumental)", the wah-wah heavy hip-house of "Blast" and the chaotic acid funk of "Nose Dive".
