Review: More from Scottish scene veteran Kevin McKay, who moved into production a few years back following decades spent running celebrated deep house imprint Glasgow Underground. As you might expect from someone of his experience, "Move Your Body (Elevation)" harks back to the halcyon days of British dance music. As the title suggests, it's a bustling four-to-the-floor house cover of X-Pansions' 1990 rave-era anthem of the same name. Wisely, McKay has included some of the most familiar elements of the original - most notably the vocal snippets and hands-in-the-air piano riff - while completing re-inventing the groove. Remixes come from U.S soulful house sort Rasmus Faber, who first delivers a warm and groovy classic house take before unfurling a sub-bass sporting, riff-heavy Club Dub.

Review: Glasgow Underground's Ibiza compilations are traditionally the biggest releases of the year for label head honchos Sam Dexter and Kevin McKay. It's stated they 'have been working their socks off to collect the best selection of cuts' and aimed squarely at White Isle dancefloors this Summer. Starting off with Sante Sansone's remix for the aforementioned McKay. This 'Italian stallion' drops his usual disco style for "What U Want", Barcelona's finest De La Swing impresses us as always with the rolling peak time stomper "No Rules" and also Vanilla Ace & Dharkfunkh's "What We Gonna Do?" (Kevin McKay remix) really brings the funk like no other on this disco-fied joint. It's a whopper here: comprised of a few dozen tracks, it's all damn good value and there's enough surefire grooves on here to keep the kids on your dancefloor groovin and movin' all Summer. And if you can't be bothered with all that: it's conveniently mixed up to perfection across three volumes by McKay himself.
