Review: Another week, another episode in the re-edit series that just keeps on giving. Getting the razor-and-tape treatment this time around, courtesy of Brighton's Adam Billingham AKA Fray Bentos, are Evelyn 'Champagne' King's 'Shame' (1977), Class Action's 'Weekend' (1983), George Benson's 'Love X Love' (1980) and Johnny 'Guitar' Watson's 'Superman Lover' (1976). There are tracks on that list where you might think, "It's a brave producer who thinks they could add anything to THAT" - and you'd be correct. All credit to Mr Billingham, then, because he pulls it off with plenty of aplomb and absolutely no sacrilege in sight! Some useful little bullets here.

Give It To Me (Unity edit) - (9:41) 120 BPM
Review: Usually, Katakana Edits releases have us furiously Googling lyrics to try and identify the source material, but for this latest volume Fray Bentos saves us a job, opting to work his magic on two very well-known tracks, Linda Clifford's 'Runaway Love' (1978) and Rick James' 'Give It To Me Baby' (1981). 'Linda's Marathon' is aptly named, as Bentos stretches out the original to a full 12:39, making for a sultry groove that'll go down a treat at Horse Meat Disco, while on 'Give It To Me (Unity Edit)' he goes for a struttier approach with a tech-house style "some Rick James, some Rick James" vocal loop for an intro.

Friends - (4:47) 124 BPM
Review: Fray Bentos, AKA Adam Billingham, cut his teeth on the Midlands' deep house free party circuit. These days, after 15 years in London, he's down in Brighton playing soul, funk and hip-hop, but on this EP for Hot Gorilla he serves up three disco-house/nu-disco cuts. 'Dunn's Groove' might be a bit Marmite thanks to its ear-piercing synths (you'll want a decent set of speakers for this one or it all turns to mush!) but 'Obsession' is a solid slice of soulful/disco house with some cool stabs, while the string-drenched 'Friends' is the most authentically 70s-sounding cut and, to these ears, the EP's clear standout.

Review: Tinned pie enthusiast and sometime producer Fray Bentos (real name Adam Billingham) has previously served up slices of meaty, deep-filled disco goodness on Katakana Edits and Alpaca Edits. Here he brings his brand of pastry-topped dancefloor deliciousness to Hot Digits for the very first time. There's plenty to get you salivating across the EP, from the Atlantic Jaxx-era Basement Jaxx house fizz of opener 'Atom Refunk', and the colourful nu-disco-meets-house warmth of 'Life Goes On', to the screaming, tooled-up disco re-edit rush of 'Where Were You?', and the more loved up but similarly grandiose closing cut 'X-Press Yo Self'. Perfect fodder for your solo lockdown discos; much dancing round the living room will ensue.

Lose Your Love - (9:17) 120 BPM
   
Grapevine (Soul Casserole edit) - (6:26) 119 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Over the last few years Fray Bentos has proved to be one of Katakana Edits most reliable contributors. Here he hits the mark once more with another double dose of pie-eyed reworks. The pastry-loving producer begins with "Lose Your Love", a gloriously meaty and celebratory re-edit that successfully tools-up and stretches out an Emotions classic for guaranteed extended dancefloor pleasure. It's really rather good, all told, though the accompanying "Soul Casserole Edit" of "Grapevine" (yep, you know the original) is arguably even better, in part because it builds tension via an extended instrumental section before unleashing the song's oh-so-familiar verses and chorus. Whether either track needed tampering with is debatable, but these are undeniably excellent alternative edits.

Review: Katakana Edits first compilation, 2017's "Crate Diggin", was an epic collection of high-grade re-edits, mash-ups and reworks packed to the rafters with tried-and-tested dancefloor treats. This belated follow-up is even more epic, with the popular label squeezing in no less than 50 tracks that variously touch on riotous disco-funk, dub disco, new wave, disco-rock, deep funk, Afro-boogie, swamp funk, Latin beats, boogie, pitched-down chuggers, boogaloo, hip-hop and everything in between. You'd expect that standard to be high - it is a "best of" collection after all - and it is. If you need an instant armoury of scintillating club cuts, look no further.

Fray Bentos & Dusty Sanchez - "Straighten It Out" - (5:15) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Given that he named himself after a popular brand of tinned pastry products, it would be fair to say that Fray Bentos likes pie. Disappointingly there's a distinctive lack of pie puns within the track titles of his latest EP, though the edits themselves are top notch. "Sum Ting About Ya" is an expertly rearranged and lightly bulked up slab of disco-soul, while "What It Takes" is a thrillingly delay-laden, tooled-up revision of a sing-along disco classic that makes the most of the original's synth bass-propelled instrumentation. For the EP's final two tracks he joins forces with Dusty Sanchez, first for the bustling disco-house stomp of "Hit It Off" and then the filter-smothered warmth of "Strengthen It Out", a deliciously dreamy affair blessed with superb piano solos.

White Men Can't Funk - (6:30) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
House Of Bricks - (6:06) 110 BPM
Review: Just under six months on from his last outing for the prolific rework label, tinned pie enthusiast turned hotshot re-editor Fray Bentos returns to Katakana Edits. He starts in typically strutting fashion, offering a slightly heavier and beefier version of Wild Cherry's funk-rock classic "Play That Funky Music" that subtly shifts from dubbed-out dancefloor stomp to full-throttle party madness over the course of six sizzling minutes. "House of Bricks" does a similar job on a hazy, horn-heavy chunk of flash-fried disco-funk goodness. This is perhaps a little more reverential than the producer's Wild Cherry revision, though it still boasts house-friendly beats to appease those who can't be bothered mixing records with live drums.

Secrets Of Wakanda (original mix) - (6:32) 120 BPM
Review: The clue's in the title with this one, as Particle Zoo serve up an EP dripping in African flavas. The title track, in its Original form, is a rolling Afro-disco groove with chanted vox and all manner of delicate percussion. Simon Mills declutters the top end and beefs up the kicks a little, but the obvious choice for club play would be the stripped-back and (deep) house-ified Don Dayglow Remix. Two more originals complete the EP: 'Algeria To Zimbabwe' sounds like Talking Heads trying their hand at African jazz while 'Secrets Of Wakanda' scatters a little magic disco dust.

Love For The Sake Of Love - (8:47) 105 BPM
Review: Its not just noted Twitter collage artist Coldwar Steve who has a thing for tinned pies. Fray Bentos, a Midlands-raised re-editor and rework merchant, is such a fan of the 1970s favourite that he named himself after it. There's something fittingly meaty about "Groove To Get Down", the opening cut from the producer's latest Katakana Edits outing. It offers up chunks of jazz-funk piano, finely diced synth flourishes and a hearty vocal in a thick disco funk gravy. You'll find more horn-heavy heartiness in the shape of rolling disco-funk workout "Night and Day", while "Love For The Sake of Love" sees him extend, beef-up and slightly pitch-up one of disco's better-known dancefloor slow jams.

Review: The team behind Thunder Jam is dreaming of a "Fantasy Fling". Given that the compilation is an expansive, 21-track affair (sorry), it would be safe to say that they're thinking of a steamy, all-action romance rather than a disappointing one-night stand. Musically, the cuts on offer tend towards the warm and loved-up, with Adata's dreamy deep house opener "Marlena Soul" and the glassy-eyed Balearic disco heat of Aure Zwins' "Long Way" setting the tone. Highlights include the loopy, filter-heavy bounce of Celestino's Lionel Richie-sampling "Rhythm", the twinkling, picturesque nu-disco cheeriness of Double F.O.G's "Bang Bao Boulevard", the synth-heavy boogie revivalism of "Fangkok" by Ivan Fabra and the low-slung dub disco-goes-jazz flex of Noil Rago's "J.Club".

Review: Fray Bentos is Adam Billingham - currently a resident DJ with Brighton's infamous Soul Casserole crew. He has supported the likes of Norman Jay, Craig Charles, Don Letts, Giles Peterson and The Reflex during his tenure. He returns on the trusty Katakana Edits with more handy resplices of golden oldies for modern audiences, supported by Goji Berry and Hawwis here for the label's 58th edition. Bentos' "Magic Work" is a lo-slung affair with a rolling funk bassline and some shimmering synth work - it's an edit of something quite familiar you think - but then that vocal dops and it finally hits you! Greece's Goji Berry delivers some smooth Italo styled business on "Mama" while Manchester's Hawwis serves up the sweltering Afro vibes and gets totally spiritual on "Amiga".

Fray Bentos returns in fine style with two cuts, starting with the bumpy, utterly groovy "Body Down", followed by the deeper, more majestic jazzy feel of "Night Giver" - oh, those strings! DJ Laurel's up next, bringing through some proper stylish funkiness with "Yes I Know", sampling the late, great Pino Daniele on the vocals, while "More Shame" goes for the tribal touch, pushing through some lovely horns and a magnificent sway of seductive trumpets for that sexy feel. Yet more Katakana goodness!

Review: This decidedly epic collection marks Katakana Edits's first foray into the compilation market and is designed as a "best-of" style outing. It boasts 30 reworks, mash-ups, remixes and re-edits gleamed from the prolific imprint's first 50 singles. Naturally, club-ready material comes thick and fast, with a multitude of genres - think swamp funk, disco, dub disco, electrofunk, Italo-disco, hip-hop, reggae and dancehall - and wide variety of tempos represented. Naturally, some of the reworks tend towards the well known, though there are also plenty of rubs of lesser-known gems for those who want to dig deeper than familiar peak-time anthems. Most importantly, the standard remains impressively high throughout.

Review: Katakana Edits hail from Scituate, Rhode Island and are responsible for edits, re-edits, bootlegs and mash-ups only! Fair enough! The bulk of their new EP comes courtesy of Fray Bentos who is originally from the Midlands - where he cut his teeth blagging sets with the free party scene in the early 90's. He then lived in London where he ran his own night Deep Fried for 15 years. He's currently a resident DJ with Brighton's infamous Soul Casserole crew who have supported the likes of Norman Jay, Craig Charles, Don Letts, Giles Peterson and The Reflex. There's some familiar hooks on these fine edits such as on "Hot 2 Trot" which is absolute fire. "Come & Get It" has some some Summery NYC circa the '70s styled heat. Finally there's a track by Russian duo SO KA with "Loveliness". Their edit going for some smooth Curtis Mayfield styled flavour. Respectful edits on offer here.

Review: Here they are at it again, fusing, twisting and sampling all the hits, obscurities and bangers you've come to love over the years; be they hip hop, electro, pop, funk or rock. Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!

Review: There's no denying Funk Fusion definitely live up to their name; take these first two tracks which sample and flip Kool & The Gang and Tribe Called Quest numbers into something new and different for 2015. There's also a cheeky garage remake of Basement Jaxx, and for something slower check out the hip hop throw down of Aretha Franklin's "Say A little Prayer For You" by KMT. And have you heard Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" pitched against Sean Paul lyrics? Well you have now. Something for everyone.
