Review: The latest offering from the Chop Shop camp aims to shine a light on a trio of up-and-coming re-edit artists. Polish producer Brick Fever made his debut on the label earlier this year, and here delivers two more party-starting highlights; the horn-heavy, synth-laden, straightened out anthem that is "Last Dance", and the smooth, soulful disco shuffle of "Stay With Me". Italian producer Ten Different also impresses with "Shake", a deliciously percussive, all-instrumental rework of the Jacksons' "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)", before joining forces with Vaudafunk for a cheery stroll though house-friendly disco pastures on the swinging "Orlando Magic".

Review: Fancy flavours may be all the rage, but there's little more delicious and refreshing on a hot summer's day than a cornet stuffed to the brim with vanilla ice cream. Certainly, that's the view of the guys and gals at Chopshop, who've named their latest collection of party-starting disco and electrofunk jams after the stuff. As usual, there's much to enjoy, from the rubbery bass and twinkling chords of Quincy Jointz and Shaddy's breezy "Rebel On The Run", to the sun-baked disco-house warmth of Brick Fever's "A Lot To Offer". As for George Kelly's title track, we can safely say it's the lick (sorry).
