Dephicit - "No Rules" (featMissin Red - Funkanomics remix) - (4:05) 146 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: This is the second instalment of Riddim Fruit's new compilation series, Remix The Version, that see choice cuts from their vaults get reworked by others on their roster. First up is Shimi Sonic's "Hot Peach", which gets tackled by BadPoe resulting in some serious early '90s vibing breaky world-hop. Next up Dephicit's "No Rules" is turned into a killer digital dubby Trap/R&B hybrid.

Shimi Sonic - "Brothers" - (3:40) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Shimi Sonic grabs the last of this season's rays with a new end-of-Summer release on UK label Brown Sugar. Having previously reworked classics by the likes of The Doors, Shimi Sonic has now recorded a series of collaborations with various international artists; British soul singer Curtis Field takes the lead on the searing Philly soul of "In The Shadows" and Israel's own Karen Perla bellows on the assertive "Got To Move". A returning Curtis Field joins Ireland's Mr Highspeed for the ironically slow motion grooves of "Do What". Shimi Sonic himself wraps things up with a wah wah-heavy funk jam called "Brothers".

I'll Take You (feat Rowetta - El Bomba remix) - (5:33) 149 BPM
Review: As the days get longer and the sun begins to peep out from behind the clouds, thoughts begin to turn to summer nights and al fresco dancing. The lead cut on this EP - a Mouldy Soul remix of "Supernova" - sounds like it was tailor-made for dancing to in the sunshine. Its' breakbeat rhythm and low end bounce are perfectly complimented by some delightfully lazy trombone solos. Blend Mishkin continue the lazy, sun-blushed theme with a cosy downbeat interpretation of "Going Around", while Dephicit delivers a thoroughly breezy re-cut of "Follow Me". A dazzlingly bright EP is completed by a solid hip-hop-soul take on "I'll Take You" by El Bomba.

Review: Four new crucial remixes and edits from Israeli producer Shim Sonic on "Re:Funked" as he breathes new life into The Doors on "Soul Kitchen" and "LA Woman", with a set of punchy nu-funk breaks gelling nicely with the funky-rockin' originals. Lulu's excellent freakbeat classic "Love Loves To Love, Love" also gets the Shimi Sonic treatment, as well as the Fab Four on the booty-spanking "Drive My Car".

Review: A nu-funk troubadour hailing from Israel, Shimi Sonic (aka Michael Emet), blazed a groovy trail for quite a few years before taking something of a sabbatical. Well now he's back and with an album in the pipeline too. Here, on the Hometown EP he's enlisted the talents of Rowetta, Kool Dee, Ella Joy Meir over four late night sizzlers - the gangsta shuffle of "So Fresh", the sing-along retro funker, " All You Funky Boyz", the up-tempo 60s soul-hop of "I Sing" and best of all, the dreamy, saucy grind of "The Way I Feel".

Review: 'It's Go Time' has a cinematic vibe with orchestral strings along side the expected funky guitar, bright sparkling twinkles lighten the mood. 'Los Chicas' is a fun track with a shuffling shaker, which will have you shimmying with the best of 'em. Moving in to 'Shimitronix' and we've got a really fusion of modern electronic from the sci-fi samples to the subtlety detected jutting undertone.

Evinha - "Esperar Pra Ver" (Shimi Sonic remix) - (4:21) 98 BPM
Played by: Voodoocuts, Weedyman
Review: It's nearly been a year since Israeli producer Michael Emeth (aka Shimi Sonic) delivered his last single, the successful collaboration project True Stories. Now he's back to what he does best - reworking old tunes in a contemporary booty-shakin' style. Here he tackles two vintage Brazilian funk cuts - "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" takes the original's sunshine vocals and marries them to a discreet, rolling groove while "Esperar Pra Ver" gets a harder retro funk workover. Classy!

Review: Tel Aviv's Shimi Sonic shows off his wide range of influences on this new EP for UK label Riddim Fruit. Opener "Supernova" even has a touch of the Pink Floyd about it, with a spacey two-chord jam fleshed out nicely by slide guitars and trumpets, while "Follow Up" mines a cumbia beat and features a fun, carefree vocal from Missin Red. The straight-up studio funk of "I'll Take You" featuring Rowetta on the mic is also well worth a listen if funky breaks are your weakness.

Hot Peach EPEXCLUSIVE

Satellite Funk - (3:04) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Boomin - (3:35)
   
One Love - (3:42)
Review: Israeli funkster Shimi Sonic returns with a quad of party-minded nu-funk jams. "Hot Peach" is the slowest burning, soul-smouldering number in the pack; all strings, flutes and Shaft-style percussion. "Satellite Funk" ups the ante with a much more contemporary fusion of percussion and ragga vocals. "Boomin" takes a smoggy Led Zeppish bluesy jam session, beefs up the beats and adorns the chunky funk with a Black Rob vocal while "One Love" is all about the massive, not to mention euphoric, Hammond riffs. Peachy.

Review: Home to artists such as Mr Bird, Mr 50 and Funkanomics, Devon-based beat stable Riddim Fruit have developed a peachy reputation since their inception in 2010. Here we find them curating their most laidback, soulful jams on Cloud Watching. Perfect for headphones and warm-ups alike, this inaugural collection bridges the gap between glitch, triphop, downtempo and soul with true style. Highlights include the crooning horns and soft mournful vocal cries on "Cold Blooded Murder", the lolloping laidback vibes and filtered loops of "Boy Mayers" and the confident, smokey classic hip-hop badness of "Back Packers". Watch clouds for long enough and you'll start seeing shapes. This particular shape is a massive thumbs up. Riddim Fruit have smashed it on this one.

Review: A brand new label dedicated to the nu-funk crusade, Funk Fusion are launching with a serious statement of booty-shaking intent. With concentrated mid tempo party vibes littered throughout the set, there are some genuinely unique examples of creativity here... Including the harmonica and slap-bass mischief of "Seems Like A Dream", the rich crooning dancehall vocal of Waykin Bakaman on "The Scury", the haunted house-level scratchy bass on "Monster". With other highlights coming from X-Ray Ted (a discofied version of Junior Senior) Phunk Sinatra (Busta Rhymes goes Bollywood) and Rory Hoy (gritty horn heaven that nods to Exit Planet Dust), this really is a fantastic way to launch a label.

Now having fully ingested all the goodness contain therein, we're ready for the next helping. There are ten new wonders to get lost in here. Highlights include hearing The Spinners' timeless melodies given a light and breezy Latin makeover on "Disco Shame", BadboE's smokin' breaks rework of a Velvelettes classic on "Breaking Down Motown" and finally Leygo's percussion-lead stomper, "Feels Good".

Review: Welcome to the sunkissed and free world of Swing Set Sounds, a label committed to sunshine melodies and grooves. Having cleverly built interest in this, their first artist compilation, by revealing a track at a time, the album is set to put the label (and the artists!) firmly on the map. Highlights include the slow and low organic hip-hop grooves of "Imagine This" by Shimi Sonic, the big drummed funky breaks of "Watch The Man" by D-Funk and the sparse Latin grooves of "La Majeur" by The Fritz. Once you visit this world, you won't want to leave.
