Katakana Edits Vol 137
I Can't Stop - (6:34) 114 BPM
Once You Get It - (5:36) 105 BPM Hot
Review: Hard on the heels of volumes 133 and 128, MBO returns with his third contribution to the long-running 'Katakana Edits' series, and two tasty little nuggets he's served up too! In the blue corner we have 'I Can't Stop', a funk-fuelled disco chugger (origins unknown) with a female vocal intoning the title, a slinky-assed bassline, brass fanfares and some seriously soaraway sax work. In the red corner, meanwhile, there's the slower-moving 'Once You Get It', which reworks the BT Express cut of the same name (from their classic 1974 long-player 'Do It ('Til You're Satisfied)').

Katakana Edits Vol 133
Twilight - (6:11) 118 BPM
Boca - (5:30) 95 BPM Hot
Review: MBO's first contribution to the 'Katakana Edits' came on Vol 128 and now, just five instalments later, he's back with another brace of fresh reworks of vintage nuggets. What exactly those nuggets are will have to go sadly unidentified this time out, but 'Twilight' is an unhurried lounge-y, tropical kinda jam with some sprightly-fingered jazz keys and minor chords that recall Flash & The Pan's 'Waiting For A Train', while 'Boca' is even more laidback, with Balearic-style dusty, sampled drums, wistful flute, schmaltzy strings and, most importantly, some very cool, blues-y Hammond work. Perfect for groovin' on a sunny afternoon.

Katakana Edits Vol 128
Doctor Funk - (5:20) 122 BPM
Get It - (5:09) 107 BPM
What They Want - (4:13) 103 BPM Hot
See - (4:25) 135 BPM
Mine - (4:18) 105 BPM
Review: These ears have seldom encountered a Katakana release they didn't like but Vol 128 really does pack some sterling re-edits, kicking off with MBO's reversioning of Jackie MacLean's 'Dr Jackyll & Mister Funk' from 1979. Next to get the treatment is The Jackson 5's 'Get It Together' from 1973, followed by The O'Jays' 'Give The People What They Want' from 1975. There's a similar 70s soul feel to 'Mine' - source sadly unknown - before we come to the jewel in the EP's crown, a stunning take on Don Covay & The Goodtimers' 'See Saw' from 1965. Mod R&B was, of course, the original rave music - check this and you'll understand why!
