Katakana Edits Vol 132
Ms Fine Brown - (5:32) 110 BPM Hot
Baila - (4:07) 53 BPM
Revenge - (3:44) 95 BPM
Tutu - (2:59) 92 BPM
Review: El Paso has become quite the Katakana regular of late, having helmed vols 115, 116, 122 and 129, and now he returns for a fifth instalment with four funk reworks in tow. 'Ms Fine Brown' revisits Syl Johnson's 'Ms Fine Brown Fame' from 1976, while James Brown's much-sampled 1973 classic 'The Payback' becomes 'Revenge'. The sources for 'Baila' and 'Tutu' - both featuring Spanish-language vocals - will sadly have to go unidentified, but the former has a Nu Yorican, boogaloo/barrio funk kinda vibe about it while the lower-tempo 'Tutu' is much more tropical and lounge-y in feel.

Katakana Edits Vol 129
Kitty Kitty - (3:37) 95 BPM Hot
Grande - (3:13) 88 BPM
Revolution Solution - (4:36) 104 BPM
I Got To Be Kissed - (3:44) 108 BPM
Review: El Paso steps up to the plate for Vol 129 in the 'Katakana Edits' series. The original versions will sadly have to go unidentified this time around, but suffice to say Da Funk is in full effect across all four tracks, kicking off with 'Kitty Kitty', a rolling trop-funk groove with breathy female vocal snips. 'Grande' follows and operates in similar territory but in slightly more lazy n' laidback - and 100% more instrumental - fashion while 'Revolution Solution' brings the militant Black Power soul vibes with its conscious male vocal, before finally 'I Got To Be Kissed' plays us with out with its full-lunged 60s-style female soul vox.

Katakana Edits Vol 122
Besoka - (3:39) 100 BPM Hot
Hong Kong - (3:19) 99 BPM
Kikiribu - (3:37) 102 BPM
Tropical Sant - (3:54) 124 BPM
Review: This latest installment in the 'Katakana Edits' series draws pretty much entirely from global music, which makes trying to identify the source material nigh-on impossible! Still, there's a kind of 60s/70s lounge-y vibe to opener 'Besoka', augmented by wave sounds, while 'Hong Kong' is a more Mexican/Latin-sounding affair that'd be best served in the summer sunshine. The fluttering 'Kikiribu' again has a Latin feel, with a chanted vocal this time, while 'Tropical Sant' maintains a similar MO but has more of a hazy, psychedelic vibe about it. One for the more eclectic DJs that like to mix up different world rhythms.

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
Katakana Edits Vol 116
Nuevo Boogaloo - (3:31) 66 BPM Hot
Brother & Sisters - (2:44) 52 BPM
Spanish Butterfly - (3:32) 101 BPM
Supimos Callarnos - (3:48) 90 BPM
Review: Chalk up two 'Katakaka Edits' outings on the bounce for El Paso, as hot on the heels of the soul-flavoured '115', released just a fortnight ago, he brings us four re-edits that look to vintage Latin music, and particularly 60s boogaloo, for inspiration. Leading the charge for this reviewer is 'Spanish Butterfly', which pairs the lead male vocal with melodic female BVs to die for. Elsewhere, pianos and trumpets take centre stage on 'Nuevo Boogaloo' and sparkling vibes/marimba (?) augment the sunny 'Brother & Sisters', before 'Supimos Callarnos' plays us out in far more laidback, lounge-y, almost melancholic style.

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
Katakana Edits Vol 115
Sociedad - (3:27) 87 BPM Hot
Cali Woman - (5:10) 93 BPM
Review: Remember that tape/DJ mix/playlist you made - the one where you cobbled together all your most sensual and seductive tracks, to put on when you finally got That Special Someone back to yours? I bet you even called it 'Lights Down Low' or 'The Passion Parlour' or something, didn't you? Yes you did. Well, that's basically what this latest 'Katakana Edits' EP sounds like, as El Paso reworks two soul grooves from days gone by. 'Sociedad' (origin unknown) is a bit Latin-y, while the Joe Bataan-biting 'Cali Woman' is (oddly, given the source) less Latin-y, but with a bit of luck no one's REALLY listening anyway...
