Review: Given that DJ Kaos's Jolly Jams imprint has consistently delivered some of the most unsusual and inspired re-edits and reworks around, you'd expect this label compilation to be nigh-on essential. It is, of course, with the eccentric, long-serving producer serving up a mixture of languid, sunset-ready synth-scapes ('Tangerine Stream' by Galling & Gruzis), electro-disco chuggers (Mark E Quark's "Slo-Mo Edit" of 'Doin' It Right'), fiery disco-funk (Bastedos' 'Nobody' and Dany B's 'Gotta Get It'), oddball disco ('Tapping The Source' by DJ Kaos), late-night acid sleaziness (Ivo Del Plado and Tavish's spaced-out 'Raw Seduction'), and glassy-eyed Balearica (Cole Medina). The package also contains a superb, slowed down re-imagining of Sylvester's 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)' by Balearic Skip that's simply stunning.

Check The Rhime - (5:40) 96 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: It's a case of "monster by name, monster by nature" here because opener 'King Of Disco Mountain' is an absolute BEAST, as Medina does for Mussorgsky's 'A Night On Bald Mountain' what Walter Murphy & The Big Apple Band did for Beethoven back in the 70s. It'll either give you spine-tingles or a full-blown case of The Fear, but either way you won't forget it in a hurry. Elsewhere, 'Let's Do It Again' is based on an unknown disco/soul nugget from the satin sheets and 'Luudes school of thought, while 'Check The Rhime' reworks A Tribe Called Quest: both are very playable, but it's 'King...' that's the killer.

The Nigerian (Cole's Chaka Chaka Chant) - (8:16) 85 BPM
Review: Los Angeles DJ/producer Medina serves up a fourth collection of druggy, chuggy slo-mo re-edits. Opener 'Thrill Her' borrows, as you'd expect, from 'Thriller' - but instead of just looping up the best bits, Medina has taken the Vincent Price passages and thrown them into the pot with squelchy analogue synth chords, a camp, slowed-down spoken vocal eulogising house music and more besides, making for a re-edit that's definitely more inventive than most. 'One Love' and 'The Nigerian' take a similar approach to vintage raps from Whodini and NWA, respectively, while 'Short Dick', the EP's most uptempo cut, is a slo-mo tribal rework of 20 Fingers feat Gillette's 1994 handbag houser 'Short Dick Man'.

The Rainforest Is Dead - (7:19) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Despite keeping up a regular release schedule over the last decade and a half, Cole Medina has arguably struggled to match the majesty of his magical 2008 Bee Gees revision, "Cole Loves You Inside and Out" (a 12" single that now changes hands for silly money online). His latest EP comes close, though, thanks to the low-slung fusion of early 80s David Bowie grooves and Crystal Waters vocals that is "Gypsy Fashionsta", not to mention the ultra-percussive, Daft Punk-goes-mid-80s-jack insanity of "Neneh's Cherry". For those looking for something more tactile and Balearic, the glassy-eyed warmth of "Sun Flower (Cole vs Sensei)" should do the trick, while closing cut "The Rainforest Is Dead" is little less than a loved-up skip through blissful 80s synth-pop/Italian dream house pastures.

Woman Of My World - (7:30) 115 BPM
   
Woman Of My World (Strings Attached dub mix) - (8:16) 115 BPM
Review: Three prime slices of small hours house deepness here, coming courtesy of Los Angeles scene veteran Cole Medina. 'Unbroken' is an ultra pared-back affair consisting of a heavy, muted kickdrum, a single hi-hat, a pulsating arp and, at first, just an ethereal wail... so when the 'full' vocal turns out to be a heavily treated Toni Braxton sample it comes as quite the surprise. 'Woman Of The World' is a tad more floor-friendly, with steel drums, rubbery bass, squelchy synths and something of a Latin tinge, but the accompanying Strings Attached Dub sees us back in dreamy, drifty post-club territory.

Target Woman - (10:54) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Groove king Medina is fighting fit and back with an absolute odyssey. "Heart Of Kyushu" is an all-out trip of tranquillity. Weighing in at 13+ minutes, it's for the deepest and most tender of moments and real statement on where Cole is at right now. "Target Woman" follows suit with a little more cosmic welly. Shiny sultry vocals, mystic synth whirlwinds and more immersivity than a VR village, Cole's not messing around with these.

Review: Armed with a ravishing string/harmony sample that swoons with instant summer breeze, Cole Medina has created this year's essential sunset piece. Armed with the right amount of squelchy low-end weight and groove that won't quit, it's Cole at his very best. For more sample mastery flip for the dubby disco lollops of "Make Your Body Move" and the Vadim-esque cosmic hip-hop meanderings of "Big Pimpin'". Super spacious. Another classic EP from the Medina discography!

It's My Nature - (8:09) 98 BPM
Review: LA-based Cole Medina is a respected DJ who's all about the soulful funk (funky Cole Medina anyone?). Here he explores his romantic side with two edit/bootlegs of the slow and sensuous kind. "Tell Me More" takes 70s staple More More More by Andrea True Connection and tickles its fancy with some retro piano house with a distinct Balearic vibe. "It's My Nature" takes what sounds like a Marvin Gaye sample and stretches it out into an eight minute rare groove jam.

Review: Movin 2 Fast? Not when these sparkling disco house jams are spinning... You'll be shimmying and boogying at just the right speed as these Whiskey wunderkinds let loose. Each of the four cuts is a highlight in its own way; Eddie C conjures up the spirits of Cevin Fisher with just a dash of Krivit keys, Alkalino's low-swung bass jacker is as sexy as disco gets, Cole Medina pilfers a very well-known sample and injects it with undiluted disco dust while Osmose closes the show with an ace edit of the Alan Parsons Project.

If I Ever - (5:01) 118 BPM
Review: Given his track record in producing simmering slow jams and seductive grooves, you'd expect Cole Medina to be rather handy between the sheets. Regardless, he's at it again (arf) with another two-tracker packed with wide-eyed, loved-up grooves. "Close 2 U" is particularly delicious, offering a head-nodding chunk of 100BPM goodness that pairs seductive slo-mo disco grooves with filter-laden modern soul vocal samples. By the time it finishes, you'll be undressed, greased up and ready for action. The more upbeat "If I Ever" continues the R&B fixation, chucking select soul vocal samples over a hip wigglin' deep house groove and kissable chords. In a word: sticky.

What I Like (Is House Music) (Reinoud Van Toledo remix) - (5:17) 124 BPM
Review: While Cole Media has always been capable of cranking out sweaty floorfillers, much of his best music bobs along at a more sedate tempo (remember that blissful smack-house dub of the Bee Gees from a few years back?). "What I Like (Is House Music)" bobs along at a head-nodding 112 BPM, offering a warm, melodic and organ-heavy fusion of deep house, sun-warm nu-Balearica and knowing garage revivalism. It's a pleasing combination. There are two more upbeat interpretations for those seeking bare dancefloor thrills. L'Equipe Du Son delivers a sax-laden homage to mid-90s New York house, while Reinoud van Toledon offers a mix of touchy-feely chords and tribal percussion.

Love For The Sake Of House - (8:18) 105 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Party Jam - (6:15) 120 BPM
Review: Here's an interesting proposition from veteran disco/deep house fusionist Cole Medina, a man whose productions are rarely less than excellent. "Love For The Sake Of House" is particularly memorable, impressively fusing elements of Claudja Barry's slo-mo disco classic "Love For The Sake Of Love" with sturdy house beats and, most notably, a super-slick R&B accapella. It shouldn't work, but it really does. "Party Jam", meanwhile, ups the tempo, turning a forgotten P-funk number into a formidable chunk of contemporary dancefloor funk. With a thick electrofunk bassline, sweaty vocal stabs and some neat guitar cut-ups, it's a real winner.

Review: For this 11th edition of the Whiskey Disco series, Sleazy McQueen has gathered together a series of decidedly loved-up re-edits, many with a real AOR feel. That's certainly the case with "Moonlight" - a wonky bundle of 6am sunrise hugs edited into shape by Yves Saint Lau'rant - and Anthony Mansfield's delightfully subdued "Cosmic Annie". There's some straight-up party flavours in the shape of Disco Tech's bumpin' rework of perennial Dolly Parton fave "Jolene", while Cole Medina successfully dubs out a deep house love song on "Your Love".

Cole Medina - "Ain't No Funq" - (6:25) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Following a couple of years when he's rocked more uptempo rhythms, Cole Medina makes a return to the sumptuous, soul-flecked sound with which he made his name. Both "Stay With Cole" and the gorgeous "Aint No Funq" recall the orgasmic, touchy-feely vibes of his infamous Bee Gees rework ("Cole Loves You Inside & Out"), working a glut of glossy, string-laden soul samples into steaming slices of slo-mo sensuality. "Cole's Just Crazy" throws some 80s soul into the pot for max end-of-night slow-dance pressure, but it's the other two tracks that really excel. Sexytime with Cole, anyone?
