Review: Q-Dance's contribution to the harder side of the dancefloor goes from strength to strength this year as the Dutch brand curate a full-flavoured four-pack of barbed-bass EDM/hardstyle hybrids. Geck-E's "She Likes It' is the most uncompromising of the bunch thanks to demonic pitched down vocal and gabber slow-jam stomp. Elsewhere we find Acti polishing up a classic Public Enemy sample, Audiofreq getting all emotional and anthemic and A*S*Y*S getting all militant and tribal. "QULT" = quality.
Review: It seems that for his 19th installment of edits, label boss Valique has thrown caution to the wind, boldly going where no re-editor has dared venture before. The six scalpel jobs on this collection include many tracks considered either sacred or just too wrong to ever tackle, but it bothers him not a jot. Standouts include Mick Hucknall's unapologetic expression of sexual arousal, Something Got Me Started, being turned into a the Balearic house bouncer "I'd Give It All For You", the proggy electro-house Pink Floyd rework "Brick Wall" and the groovy Prince edit "The Future".
Review: This is collection of edits and it's as fresh, fun and funky as any good disco edit should be. Starting the bunch is 'At No Cost' with a classic guitar and pumping beat, decorated in shimmers and sparkles, get the glitter out. 'Let's Fall In Love' is a sing-a-long, with a deep sub and a tinkling triangle. ''Appelle Moi' is one of those track everyone's heard before, we're loving the new aquatic, echo drips which have been added. 'Bring The Best In Me' is an amazing track, we defy anyone to listen to it and not dance, the jazzy piano, the infectious bongos and that killer vocal, disco done good!
