Review: Hamburg label Deja Tunes have a strong roster of soulful, futuristic nu-jazz artists on their books - so much so that they've dedicated two whole collections to the best beats so far. Part Two features all manner of jazz-sampling, broken beat brilliance, such as Michael Sauer's effortlessly sultry "Hey Woman", The Bas Lexter's Ensample's Herbie Hancock-esque "The Speech", or the Supreme Court Jesters and their Last Poets/Gil Scott-Heron-aping "Archaeology of The Soul". There's even a jazzy nod to dubstep on the highly original and beautiful "Jazzmove 2" by Channel Two.

Review: SOL Discos, a sub-label of France's Favorite Recordings, have been quietly turning out disco and funk boogie reissues since 2006, and if you've yet to experience the delights of their catalogue then this eight-track compilation is the perfect chance to get acquainted. The album packs a couple of 70s-flavoured disco nuggets, namely Direct Connec Shun's 'He's No Good' and Executive Suite's 'When It Comes To Loving You', but beyond those two we're strictly in 80s boogie/electrofunk territory, with Spice Of Ice's fast n' funky 'Star Struck' and Janice 'Nicki' Harrison's rap-tinged 'Magic Of Love' particular standouts.
