We know you're not the kind of person who lets just anybody into your soul, but after one listen to Minimatic's new EP, we're pretty sure you'll make an exception for this charmer. "Let's Get Into Your Soul" sees the Parisian DJ splice a cheeky Marvin Gaye vocal with some infectious bossoul nova for some seductive results. "In Da Roots Club" recontextualises 50 Cent's killer debut with some laid back roots and "Planet Jerk" wraps things up nicely with some party-startin' vintage funky breaks.
Resense are on a roll of late with new releases coming left, right and centre. Here we have more old-meets-new-skool frivolity, with two incendiary dancefloors excursions. Mambo is certainly the order of the day here, with "My Zindi" featuring 1940s-style crooners over a tight shuffling beat. "Regulate Your Aperitif" is insanely catchy, with a cool hip-house rap delivered over a backing that recalls "My Definition Of A Boombastic Jazz Style".
Sacre bleu! Parisian 'electro-organic hop-soul' producer and DJ, Minimatic, is back with a new release. "Supermarket Freaks" is a celebratory mash-up of chunky, funky beats, perky brass and than a little Gallic funk. "Empire Of The (ChaCha) Strikes Back" is more of a laid back hip-hop number with break beats and retro 60s samples and lastly "Easy Is My Name" ends things on a loungey, cinematic high.
JoJo Effect - "Freaky Brown Bug Meets The A Sisters" - (3:25) 120 BPM

Jogging Tunes' charming, jolly and energetic mix of raucous electro-swing, breezy mambo, swingin' dancefloor jazz, fat funk breaks and cheeky salsa grooves should help motivate all but the laziest of runners. With excellent cuts from Bajka, the James Taylor Quartet and Ella Fitzgerald squeezed between the bootlegs, mash-ups and grin-inducing floorfillers, there's more than enough quality to get you to the finish line - whether you're jogging, dancing or indulging in a little horizontal mambo.
