Having spent recent times darting between proper party fodder and strobelight disco delights, the Chopshop crew return with an EP the dips the tempo and depends the grooves for an altogether more slow burn feel. As usual, there's plenty to devour, from the warm chords and deep house sassisness of Peter Francis and James Omarta's "Slo Grind", to the lolloping, break-driven jazz-funk of Dj Butcher's "The Perfect High". Elsewhere, Andy Kidd doffs a cap to '80s rare groove with the soulful head-nodder "Remind Me" (arguably the EP's stand out track), and Rotarydisco76 impresses with the blazed, wide-eyed deep Latin funk of "Ultima Chance".
DJ Butcher is keeping the disco train a runnin' with the latest instalment of his label's much loved compilation series "Chopshop Turns Me On". Now on its fourth outing, the series is as good as ever, this time featuring Situation's saucy half time space-grinder "Hot Meter", Butcher's own Fender Rhodes-fuelled boogie fest "The Charms Of Chamille", JMRS' killer Moroder-esque rework of "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)" and the deep, synth washes of closer "Daylight" by Andy Kidd.
