Review: Last Night Bill Brewster saved my life, Sprechen Sie? Legendary UK musicologist, DJ and scribe Billy B returns to Chris Massey's Sprechen label following his Frottage Cheese EP from last year. Laced with the right kind of fromage a second time around, BB let's loose with some wild rhodes and heavy struck piano chords and mumba percussion in "Macumba Espanol", with some starlight bassline funk and cosmic instrumental disco in "Gone East (Version Deux)" - zing! FInd some high street soul-jazz in "Where There's Muck, There's Brass" with some spacey UK dub and post punk funk in "Wake Up (Dub Disco)". Tell 'em Elton sent ya. A good Brew.

Review: Sprechen's latest release is something of a doozy, all told. It comes from font-of-all-musical-knowledge and top notch DJ Bill Brewster, who shares four killer cuts from his personal stash of re-edits. It really is all killer, no filler, with "Love Hard" - a brilliant revision of a spacey, throbbing, tongue-in-cheek classic that dispenses with almost all of the most familiar bits and concentrates on the track's sleazy groove and intergalactic synths - hitting home particularly hard. Opener "Carpet Warehouse" offers more spacey synths, camp vocals and killer grooves, while "SOS" is a near perfect revision of a low-slung, post punk-era dub disco obscurity. Speaking of post-punk era goodness, we'd suggest checking out EP closer "Wide Awake Club", which could well be the strongest edit on a very strong collection of reworks.

Review: When Eskimo Recordings approached Bill Brewster with the idea of putting together a compilation exploring his epic record collection, the acclaimed journalist and DJ decided to take a widescreen approach. While the CD and vinyl versions are split into multiple, themed editions ("Post-Punk", "Balearic" and "House"), this vast, 41-track digital edition gathers everything together in one place. Predictably, it's a hugely impressive and eye-opening set, with Brewster serving up largely obscure or long-forgotten cuts that range in scope from trippy, dubbed-out post-punk disco, jaunty jazz-funk, synth-heavy boogie and heavily percussive Afro-disco grooves, to saucer-eyed European synth-pop, the dub techno of Maurizio, Swag's early UK tech-house and the East Midlands deep house bump of Charles Webster's "A Love From San Francisco" project. In other words, it's a cracker from start to finish.

Review: Given his encyclopedic knowledge of music, you'd expect any compilation put together by Bill Brewster to be full of unlikely gems and lesser-known anthems. That's certainly the case with After Dark, the first in a new DJ-focused series from the Late Night Tales camp. From start to finish, Brewster's selections are spot on, from the lowdown, slo-mo disco oddness of Sheffield chanteuse Marti Caine's "Love The Way You Love Me" and wide-eyed, acid-laden kosmiche of Coober Peder University Band's "Moon Plain", to the dirty electrofunk of Zed Bias's "Koolade" (featuring Toddla T, of all people) and mid'80s percussion fest of Martin Kershaw's "Keep On Pokin". If that wasn't enough, Brewster has also unearthed a decent Jamiroquai record. The wonders never cease.

Review: In the words of Paper Disco, episode six of their floor-friendly "Trash The Wax" series delivers "plenty of party pumping offerings". Predictably, proof of the set's club-ready status arrives via Hi-FI Sean's compilation opening remix of IPG v Hot Toddy's "Slow Motion Cowboy", which delivers a funk-fuelled riot of delay-laden guitars, funk rock attitude and sizzling dub disco grooves. Naturally, the rest of the collection is similarly strong. Highlights include a rare production outing from Bill Brewster (the throbbing, off-kilter Italo-disco him of "4 U Blue"), the Balearic Italo-disco bliss of Richard Norris's "Glow", the dreamy, arpeggio-driven nu-disco warmth of Kooky and Damoon's "Walk Back Into My Life" and Sheffield stalwart Solid State's deep, epic revision of "Remnants" by Speed For Lovers.

Review: DJ, author, journalist and all-round font of musical knowledge Bill Brewster is the owner of a killer record collection, so it's little surprise to see that Eskimo Recordings has asked him to curate an epic compilation. Tribal Rites is appearing in three parts. While later instalments focus on house and Balearica, this first edition delves into the post-punk section of the veteran selector's collection. Predictably, Brewster's selections are not only on-point but, for the most part, suitably obscure. Check, for example, the stretched-out jazz-rock-with-spoken-word weirdness of Agape's "Rejoice", the humid dub trip of Urang Otan's "Walking in the Jungle", the thrillingly tongue-in-cheek electro-pop silliness of Ploff's "Mein Walkman is Kaput" and the blissful brilliance of Motion's dub-fired lounge jazz number "Crazy Beat". And that's just for starters. In other words, you need this in your life.
