Serial re-edit fiend Rayko enjoyed a busy 2012, releasing countless well-regarded EPs of floor-friendly electrofunk and disco rubs. Here he kicks off 2013 with a first solo outing on Chopshop. Like previous outings, it provides a quartet of synth heavy re-dubs and the odd peaktime re-cut (see the mostly instrumental take on The Whispers' "And The Beat Goes On"). Opener "Shake Your Body" is probably the standout, building a formidable electrofunk groove around thickset synths and heavy low-end. "Put The Freez On" ups the tempo and laces chunks of vocal over a particularly sweet and soul-flecked synth groove, while "Superman" rolls along on a Roger Troutman flex - all heavy P-funk synths and fancy talkbox vocals.
