Guildford-based Bad Barbie and Evil Smarty first joined forces in the autumn of 2014, releasing an EP of sleazy disco and funk re-edits for French Kiss Recordings. Here they join Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint, delivering a quartet of disco-reggae re-edits drenched in dub delay, spiralling special effects and subtle additional percussion. Particularly potent is the stretched out, dubbed-out "Get Enough", an excellent rework of a classic reggae cover of Michael Jackson, while "My Bell" layers Anita Ward's famous vocal over a nu-disco tinged dub house backing. The package also includes a future summer sing-along - a tasty revision of a reggae version of Chic's "I Want Your Love".

Parisian producer Blundetto (the man behind French radio station Radio Nova no less) is back with his third album, World Of. Further pursuing his love of soulful reggae, cinematic scores, and Latin and Afro beats, he's invited some French reggae heroes (Biga Ranx or PupaJim), a New York MC (Jahdan Blakamoore) and new comers John Milk and Marina P to contribute to these rich and intoxicating 12 sizzling tracks. A producer who never lets us down.
