Oli's French Fries - (3:01) 114 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Enjoys - (3:31) 140 BPM
Review: The unofficial winner of 'best pun-name 2012' award, DJ Oli Garch is back to treat us to a couple more slices of his trademark electro-swing. "Oli's French Fries" features bold as brass vintage, er, brass samples with big fat beats and an almost dubsteppy bassline treading underneath. "Enjoys" is fruitier: all perky, shuffly beats and a call-and-response between a 1940s male chorus and a modern sassy female.

Get Your Enjoys - (3:34)
Review: Oli Garch was last heard of covering Bryan Ferry; here he returns with five swingy cuts with a slight hip-hop bent. Things kick off with the Latin lounge-via-the-durrty-south vibes of "Rollin Stone", the instrumental "Oh My Man" goes way back for a Louis Prima-style sound married to trippy hoppy beats, "Get Your Enjoys" loops some vocals from a similar retro tune, whilst the two versions of "Hollywood Swings" explore the housier end of the electro-swing spectrum.

Played by: DJ Oli Garch
Review: When not busy buying up investment property in west London, Oli Garch likes to drop retro themed swingy jams. The Goldenera Edits EP is more of what he does best: marrying vintage big band sample with tougher contemporary beats, and it's a formula that really works. Highlights here include the four on the floor "Jungle Night In Harlem" which boasts some mean old skool trumpet riffs, and the showtunes-go-dubby party-orientated "Grabtown Electricity".

Daisy Electro (Dubstep version) - (4:12)
Played by: Minimatic, DJ Oli Garch
Review: Back in the 1980s, the biggest style influence was 1920s Art Deco, just look at the video for Bryan Ferry's Don't Stop The Dance and that sax-playing gal with the Louise Brooks haircut. What with that lookalike on this cover, its seems that electro-swing hero DJ Oligarch is on a similar tip. Oh wait; this is a cover of Ferry's louche classic! The original completes the circle by transporting the song back to the 'jazz age' 20s, while the tough beats and vintage instrumentation of "Daisy Electro" could be straight from the recent Great Gatsby remake. Spiffing!

Quincy vs Cakes - "Tito" - (5:58)
   
Global Booty Shakers - "Global Booty Shakers Theme" - (4:32)
Review: Add a little red blooded Latino spirit to your sets this summer with this rather sun-splashed four piece on Big M. "Esperanca" is the lead cut here, and it comes in two forms; Oli Garch's original is a sprightly rolling breakbeat number complete with some very well-timed half-time beat work. Quincy Jointz' remix, meanwhile, ups the tempo for an equally seasonal D&B cut that comes with added vocal flexes. Quincy appears further on in the release as he pairs up with Cakes for the ultimate carnival set-piece. Taking a Cuban standard and beefing it up to the max, you can almost smell the flamenco guitars and big fat cigars. Global Booty Shakers finalise proceedings with their very own theme, a well-paced sing-along affair with steady beats, wild percussion and just a small dosage of menace on the bass, it's a fitting end to a fine release.

Review: The Katakana edit express thunders on with their 11th installment of party breaks. This time the overwhelming vibe is of retro soul, jazz and swing. The latter is handled with a Latin influence on "I'll Be A God Man" and "Lovely TV" by DJ Clairvo, while the amazingly-named DJ Oli Garch provides a breaky, swingy version of jazz standard "Summertime. Lastly Timewrap opts for some Cuban-tinged grooves on "Miami", as well as a cheeky retweak of The Velvelettes' Motown classic "He Was Really Saying Something".

Review: For a label that only launched this spring, four volumes of creatively executed party jams is beyond impressive. We reckon this could be Funk Fusion's best yet, too. From Rhythm Scholar's respectfully tripped out twist on "Lucy In The Sky" to Fabioulous Barker's slap-bass blazed take on Skeelow via the funkiest ever version of 2Pac's "California Love", it's an impressive collection that leans towards the more subtle art of editing rather than crass bootleg cut-and-shuts and will have a lot more timeless appeal as a result.

Review: Just four tracks to be found on the Katakana Edits crew's latest instalment their ongoing disco comp series. Still, it's all about the quality, not the quantity and there's plenty of that still to be found. Bonnie & Klein deliver the warped hypnotic funk of "Kung Fu Love", LCA & Voodoo Cuts serve up a vintage-jazz-meets-daisy-age-rap joint, old skool ragga-roots is the order of the day on Timewrap's good time anthem, "Dubshine". Oligarch arrives with the raucous "Swingin'" to wrap things nicely, and nicely he does.

Review: If you like your funk and breakbeats a little dirtier, than Funk Fusion have the grease to grind those gears. Terry Wagun drops a wobbly, saw-wave bassline over a choral of Lily Allen vocals in the opening track, while Mr Bristow slugs out some dirty low-end similar to Mr Oizo's "Analog Worms Attack" in his addition. For a crunchy, slowed down, stoners version of Pharrell's "Happy" there's 2RUD's "Happy Ska" - and don't forget Dave Gerrad's mashup of Queen and Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" in his Funkadelic "Kurtis Breaks". Some bass-heavy 808 beats like Felix Da Housecat's "Kickdrum" rumble under a pair of titan hip hop vocals in "Turn Down For Hip Hop" thanks to Lil Jon and Fatman Scoop samples which spit over the top of Major Lazer synths. Get fused.

Review: If life teaches you anything it's to expect the unexpected. Here the mighty re-edit label Katakana deliver their 42nd instalment of scapel jobs. However, this time, rather than have a specific producer curate an EP, they've shaken up the formula and delivered a compilation of edits. There's a whopping 24 reworks to enjoy too, many thrills and spills, but our favourites include Morlack's explosive drum-lead MJ cover, "Don't Stop", Mister Vagz' corny 60s mash-up "Love Me Venus" and Dim Zach & Deem's baggy rework of the Happy Monday's sublime "Loose Fit".

Review: This latest offering from the shady Katakana Edits crew makes their previous offerings seem positively anemic by comparison. Boasting a whopping 22 tracks, it's almost certainly guaranteed to provide decent ammo for every house party imaginable. Highlights include the chugging electro dub sing-along "Shakka Boom" by DJ Clairvo, the p-funk meets disco of vibes of "Miami Freaks" by Lee Zamah and Timewrap's pumped up version of The Velvettes's perennial Motown classic, "He Was Really Sayin' Something".
