Imagination - "Burning Up" (Koko edit) - (7:58) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: In a world where every man and his dog is putting out so-so disco edits, the Basic Fingers crew can usually be relied upon to inject some soul-flecked quality into proceedings. That's certainly the case here, as Koko cuts up much-loved cuts by Norman Connors and giant nappy-wearing Brit-electro types Imagination. The version of Connors' "Stay With Me" is pleasingly upbeat, building up from a chunky, percussive start into a hazy disco-soul singalong. The beats are reliably sturdy, but most of the original musicianship remains in tact. The version of Lee John and company's "Burning Up", meanwhile, is nothing less than a jaunty stomper, with occasional vocals interspersed between a flurry of piano solos. Hands skywards, please.

Review: Given his credentials and track record, it's unsurprising that original disco and boogie artists are willing to let Joey Negro play around with their biggest hits. His first stab at this kind of multi-track remix, 2014's Remixed With Love, was such a success that he's decided to unleash another swathe of revisions over two vinyl double-packs. This edition features some killer reworks, including a sublime, on-point rearrangement of Gwen McRae's "Keep The Fire Burning" and a rolling, dubbed-out version of Grace Jones' "Pull Up To The Bumper" that rivals Larry Levan's classic remix. The veteran producer also successfully turns Pockets' "Come Go With Me" into a classic soulful house rub, and pushes Thelma Houston's "I'm Here Again" further towards disco anthem territory.

Review: Ever a duo of fine taste, Mobb Deep have sampled many a musical gem. There's too many collected here to name them all (25 in total) but some of the album's many highlights include Giorgio Moroder's snowblind and slick Scarface disco on "Tony's Theme", the cavernous '70s funk rock of "Dirty Feet" (as famously pinched for "Shook Ones Pt II"), another "Cavern" this time Liquid Liquid's punk-funk masterpiece, and the hysterical intimacy overload of Prince's "If I Was Your Girlfriend".

Review: Often, a lot of questionable feats and skills are retrospectively foisted upon music legends by the nerdier music fans amongst us. Classic DJs like Ron Hardy are regularly claimed to have seamlessly mixed the one copy of the same record for five hours with his toenail, whilst stood upside down and blindfolded in the booth. The sleeves of "School Yard Breaks" do nothing to change this, but for the most part we'll never really know what is truth and what is myth. However we do know what they played and here are another 25 b-boy breaks to play 'air mix toe' to.
