Review: ChopShop Digital barely deviates from its' well-worn formula, which involves serving up multi-artist EPs full of tried-and-tested reworks. Happily, they're at it again here. BnC kicks things off with the break-driven funk shuffle of "Good Times Roll", before Woodhead & Hebegebe raise the temperature with the heavy funk-goes-Italo-disco surge of "Pony Up". West Country scalpel fiends Situation serve up the dusty soul sweetness of "Change For A Coke", while Senior Citizens attempt to outdo them with the similarly luscious and soulful "The Perfect Plan". Finally, label boss George Kelly steals the show with a killer re-cut of Willie Bobo/Ronnie Laws favourite "Always There".

Label boss DJ Butcher kicks off proceedings with the shimmering bass odyssey of "Paradise", and next is JMRS' new cover of The Stones' "Miss You" which livens up this disco-rock classic with perky guitar and a Lionel Richie-esque vocal, finally the slinky female fronted funk of "Good Time Groove Train" leads us into Ronin's stormin electro-disco remix of "Miss You" - easily the coolest joint on this excellent EP.

Review: The long-standing Editorial stable have welcomed many choice boogie and disco heads to do the honours in reviving classic gems from the seemingly endless mine of 70s and 80s wares, and they're at it once again with the Good Fot Get Down collection. Regular contributors Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee keep things lightly shuffling and laid back on "Let U Go" while The Owl gets into a more stripped and stiff floor-focused funk. The Funk District have more clear intentions in getting the party started with "Disco Dynamite", while Spankie Hazard gets a little jazzy on "Party". Whatever your funky needs, Editorial have it all and more.

Review: Chopshop mark the completion of their first decade in the game with this 17-track compilation of funk n' breaks nuggets from the label vaults. Groove Armada and Situation both feature, but generally the emphasis is on less well-known names, who serve up a mixture of cheeky bootlegs, re-edits and original material. Dave Gerrard samples the Average White Band on 'Drop The Pieces' and George Kelly & DJ S's 'Movin' To The Groovin' takes Wild Cherry to the breakbeat party, but the majority of the tracks draw on less obvious sources of inspiration, with standouts including the big beat/lounge-y vibes of Senior Citizens' 'What A Body' and the ghetto disco groove of Appo's 'Getaway'.

Review: A decade has now passed since George Kelly established the Chopshop imprint as an outlet for goodtime grooves, sneaky reworks and club-ready re-edits that blur the boundaries between disco and house. To celebrate the fact, he's gathered together some of his label highlights on an expansive compilation. It's arguably best enjoyed via his action-packed DJ mix, which is tucked away at the end of the collection, though DJs will delight at the sheer volume and quality of the unmixed cuts on offer. Our favourites include the rubbery bounce of HP Vince's appropriately titled "Funky Disco Party", Kelly's killer Marlena Shaw revision ("Raised In The Ghetto"), the bustling funky house pleasures of HP Vince and Dave Leatherman's "Back 2 The Old Skool (House Mix)") and the disco-rap goodness of Captain Futuro's "Club Warzone".

Review: Under the DJ Butcher alias, George Kelly has turned the Chop Shop imprint into one of the world's most reliable sources of party-starting re-edits, remixes, mash-ups and sample-heavy productions. Hello My Name Is... Chop Shop celebrates the label's successes so far, with a hot-to-trot DJ mix from the man himself being joined by 18 hand picked highlights from the vaults. Tiptoeing the fine line between original scalpel-work (see the high-tempo, summery celebration of Le Visiteur's "Let The Sunshine" and Corsican Brothers' ace "Big Apple Rock"), house-friendly rubs (Sam Palmer's filter-drenched "Hurt Me", an excellent Latin disco-house cut from The Silver Rider), and balls-out, party starting cut-ups (the block party flex of DJ Agent 86), Kelly has curated an excellent selection of peak-time gems.

Review: Midnight Right's Afrobeat, Afro-funk and Afro-disco inspired "Riot In Lagos" compilation is arguably one of the label's standout releases of the last few years, so it's exciting to hear that volume two is on the way. To give us a taste of what's to come, the Yam Who-helmed imprint has offered up this rock solid sampler. Krewcial kicks things off via the jaunty, sax-heavy brilliance of "Mabina" - a kind of swinging, bass-heavy disco tribute to Fela Kuti - before Get To Know cheerily dance through mid-80s Nigerian boogie/synth-soul pastures on the wonderful "Fugar" re-edit. The EP also boasts two versions of Situation's Afro-centric cut "Wonky": a deep and jazzy Afro-house version by Frank Situation rich in glistening jazz guitar solos, and an even hazier and more hypnotic Mr Mulatto take.

Review: DJ Butcher has gathered together an all-star cast for this latest re-edit missive on his always on-point ChopShop label. Experienced scalpel fiend Leftside Wobble kicks off proceedings with "Dope Love", a heavyweight, hip-hop style funk cut-up that makes great use of Candi Staton's vocal from "You Got The Love". Fast-rising, Warrington-based boogie lover 80's Child weighs in with a deliciously glassy-eyed chunk of downtempo soul, before the lesser-known Love Drop delivers "To Prove My Love", a great blue-eyed soul/AOR disco shuffler made from a classic chunk of West Coast stoner rock. Finally, West Country producers Situation steal the show with "Jay Bee", a tasteful James Brown re-work that bobs and weaves in all the right places.

Review: West Country edit fiends turned nu-disco wizards Situation return, and this time they've got a bunch of top remix talent in tow. The original version of "Stand Tough" is typical of their sound; an attractive blend of shuffling, live-sounding disco drums, warm chords, chunky bass and deep house attitude. Greg Wilson and Derek Kaye step up first, dropping a version that adds a little more of a live feel, whilst retaining the original's synth-heavy, nu-disco vibe. More exciting - if less obviously in-your-face - is Pete Twin's version, an enticing fusion of upbeat hip-hop breaks, fizzing synths, acid squiggles and P-funk sassiness. Finally, Look Me In The Eyes delivers a shimmering, ultra-deep nu-disco interpretation.

The Johnny Disco EP, though, shows how at home they are with this label, providing us with an epic so ambitious, it's split into two mammoth parts. "Johnny Disco Part 1" is a light-headed raw disco jam, replete with flowing guitar licks, incessant percussion and loopy keys. "Part 2" ups the energy with disco party claps and new wave-inspired synth lines. "Maxi Disco" also continues with the electronic theme, being a thrilling Moroder-in-space Italo-disco bomb.

Review: Gracing labels like Nang and ChopShop, Situation is also a regular on Our Records, and here the producer's 2014 It's A Beautiful Life album gets remixed. Dicky Trisco is the biggest name on the bill and Barry Reeves delivers a dubbed out, Rhode driven remake to the title-track, which is also taken on by Vampire Disco who bring out the tropicana vibe in their remix and it's all grimey bassline house in the Look Both Ways rework - that vocal! For straight up Detroit soul check out Bitter Suite's version of "Just On Me", while there's such danceability to the The Forgotton's remix of "I Wanna Feel Sunshine" - again, great work on the vocal! And for a bonus, boogie down to the instrumental version of the funkadelic "Keep It Cool".

Review: Fresh from releases on Nang and Chopshop, Gloucestershire-based disco/boogie/deep house fusionists Situation pop up on Paper Disco. "Get A Taxi" is arguably one of their strongest tracks to date; a seductive fusion of bubbling P-funk synth lines, vintage electrofunk swing, smooth disco drums, heady vocals and just a little 21st century deep house flavour. Interestingly, it's this latter element that most of the remixers choose to focus on, with Alkalino, Goshawk and Vampire Disco all delivering nu disco-meets-deep house interpretations. Love Drop do things a little differently, serving up a warm, Balearic-inclined interpretation that doffs a cap towards jazzy, early noughties broken beat.

Review: Given the usual high quality of their reworks, it's little surprise to see Situation pop up on Alpaca Edits. There's much to admire on this four-track assault of mid-tempo floorfillers, with the Gloucestershire outfit showcasing their shrewd way with a scalpel. They begin with the Rhodes-laden soul shuffle of "Cookin' On Love", before sneakily rearranging a much-loved, synth-heavy boogie banger from Melba Moore to emphasise the killer bassline, sweet vocal and ear-catching guitars ("Moore Melba"). Also impressive is the bluesy, low-slung funk-rock of "Gimme Some", though the standout is undoubtedly "Prancing Mayfield". Expertly stitching together bits of several tunes, it's an altogether more classy proposition that 99% of cut-and-paste efforts.

Review: The Cotswolds might not be the first place people think of when discussing summery disco, but sometimes surprises are more fun. Hometown groovers Situation have been steadily earning a solid reputation for slick nu-disco jams. "Hurricane" is their latest missive, a sparse clavinet-driven groove with the dreamy vocals of Lauren Rimmell floating on top. There are lots of great mixes too including the skippy house vibes of the NY Club mix and Yam Who?'s super smooth rework of TWI.

Review: Stroud collective Situation has long been among the most reliable re-editors on the nu-disco scene. Further proof that they barely put a foot wrong arrives in the form of "Simple Pleasures", a deliciously jazzy chunk of breezy dancefloor goodness that effortlessly combines glistening guitars, warm organ stabs, shuffling soul breaks and a life-affirming female vocal. For those who can take or leave the vocal, the boys from the Five Valleys have included an excellent instrumental version. There's a tougher, more upbeat remix present, too, with Chop Shop boss George Kelly turning the swinging original into a metronomic disco-house chugger. While good, it lacks a little of the alluring looseness of Situation's original version.

It's a slo-mo affair, with most tracks under the 110 bpm mark; highlights include "Dance Boogie" which is based around that famous Steal My Sunshine sample, the blissed-out Latin funk of "Sweet Music" and the attitude-heavy snazzy disco grooves of "Unique Groove".

Here the Gloucestershire collective pop up on Chopshop with The Cosmic Situation, a triple-dose of tried-and-tested reworks and mash-ups. First up is "Get Down Love", a surprisingly successful fusion of Oliver Cheetham's "Get Down Saturday Night" and Alexander O'Neal/Cherelle fave "Saturday Love". "Judge & Dury" offers an excellent extension and rearrangement if Ian Dury & The Blockheads' "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" (check the fuzzy sax stabs in the second half of the track), while "Maxine's Tip" makes merry with some deep hip-hop loops and a dash of Q-Tip.

Review: The Situation crew are taking over the disco-balearic connection, coming through with constant quality, often drenched in a familiar poppy feel that we very much need at this moment of the year. "You Gotta Move" is a slow, funky little number with everything from liquid guitars melting lift, right and centre, to seductive vocals reminiscent of the 1980s. If that wasn't enough, they've recruited a rather fine set of remixers, with the legendary Ashley Beedle spear-heading the festivities with a broken beat monster in a fine boogie style.

The set the tone with the jazz-funk-meets-deep house brilliance of "Soulstice" - check the lazy guitar solos, Rhodes chords and bubbly bass guitar - before doffing a cap to one of Glastonbury's most celebrated behind-the-scenes spots on the similarly languid, live-sounding "Maceos". "Stardust" is a rich, wah-wah-guitar flecked shuffle through deep disco pastures, while "Let's Dance" is an energetic slab of Prince style purple funk complete with fizzing slap bass and wavy, eyes-closed guitar solos.

Review: 'Be a Better Man' is Situation's first outing on Situationism with new vocalist to the fold Andre Espeut bringing his unique vocal & song writing talents sparking an exciting collaboration with Situation's collective. After the successful "Get to Know Me" release on Nang late last year this is the 2nd release Situation have had with Andre & there is much more to come! 5 reasons bring us a funky filter drenched dancefloor pleaser in their inimitable style! The combination of their new style deep house with a sprinkling of nu disco & big production shows us again the talent that is 5 Reasons. The winning combination of Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye on the remix has delivered another beautiful deep dance floor winner! This heavy synth drenched groove has electro piano lines reminiscent of late 80's jams with a dubbed out breakdown before launching back into a bumping instrumental section to finish.
Californian West coast producer Juan Hoerni brings us his distinctive Latin house vibes with incredible flute & trumpet playing by David Soto from Puerto Rico, creating an infectious Hispanic house killer! Ourra take us on their 80's boogie down journey, keeping the vocals raw & cleverly cut up in snippets with a great driving bass groove that kicks with the snappy drums & percussion. Covered in 80's synths, this is a serious slice of boogie action!

Review: Stroud boys Situation are clearly enjoying a fruitful relationship with vocalist Andre Esput, delivering their second collaborative release in as many weeks. In its original form, "Times Going Down" is a warm and breezy chunk of soft focus soulful house smothered in rich instrumentation and subtle nods to early '80s jazz-funk and mid '90s New Jersey garage. It's accompanied by some stellar remixes. Chief amongst these is Joutro Mundo's fine freestyle remake, which sounds like a long lost NYC or Miami production from 1986 - all wobbly synth bass, electro drum hits and Latin Rascals style edits. Hypnotic Lovers' remake is a bouncy chunk of electrofunk/deep house fusion, while the Black Bridge Dub looks to legendary New Jersey club Zanzibar for inspiration.

Review: Gloucestershire collective Situation continues to impress with their soul-soaked singles, which invariably join the dots between nu-disco, electrofunk and deep house. That's certainly the case on "Put The Rhythm In Your Life", where slick soul singer Andre Esput adds his honeyed tones to a midtempo electro-soul shuffler. Andre Espeut is in a bolder mood on "Kiss The Sky", wrapping his impassioned vocals around Prince style purple funk guitars, New Jersey organs and an unfussy house groove. Arguably best of all, though, is "Gonna Get Real Nice", whose combination of hushed vocals, dreamy deep house chord progressions and tumbling jazz guitar licks is reminiscent of fellow West Country outfit The Rurals.

The duo's "Not So Crazy" is a quirky, disco-friendly house chugger with a sublimely tropical percussion and tied together by zesty boogie basslines. There's a whole artillery of remixers to boot: Peza rolls thorugh with a bit of electro house, Mr Mulatto drops a heartical Miracle dub, Audio Luxury offers a sweet, nostalgic garage sound, and Masterman ties it all off with some wavy, progressive hits of the drums. Top stuff!

Review: For the second time, Stroud collective Situation joins forces with golden-voiced singer Andre Esput and asks, "What Is Going On?" Some of their many producer pals provide sterling remixes of the Cotswolds crew's tasty original version, which hit stores back in June. The Andromeda Orchestra step up first with a low-slung, party-hearty disco-funk version that expertly channels the spirit of Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up", before West Country deep house veterans BRS offer up a smooth, warm and groovy revision tailor made for sun-kissed afternoons, humid evenings and sweat-soaked nights. To round things things off in style, Bitter Suite peppers a broken beat influenced house groove with jazz-funk synths, spacey chords and just the right amount of warming slap bass.

Review: West Country heroes Situation have kept it local on their latest EP, which offers up a suite of previously unheard re-rubs of Andre Espeut hook-up "Beyond Compare" by Bristol-based house hero Sean McCabe. It starts with vocal and instrumental interpretations built around warming, mood-enhancing chords, jangly piano riffs, unfussy beats and the kind of slick, ear-catching electronic bassline more associated with Atjazz productions. Then McCabe offers up a superb "Vocal Reprise" take that sounds a little "fuller" and more energy-packed (thanks in part to his use of more urgent-sounding vocal snippets and grandiose chord sequences), as well as a brilliantly dreamy and locked-in Dub that sounds a little like one of Frankie Knuckles' classic remixes. The final bonus treat is definitely worth some special attention too.

Disco Funk Spinner - "Blind Beat" - (6:17) 117 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: While Toys Of Joy might sound like the name of a bumper box of "adult pleasure accessories", it's in fact Midnight Riot's chosen name for the label's occasional series of split artist EPs. This second volume does, though, contain rather a lot of crotch-moistening material. Stroud scalpel fiends Situation Sounds impress with a stretched-out version of a dreamy Balearic rock classic, while Black Magic Disco and Disco Funk Spinner both steal the show with essential disco-rock reworks ("Strike It Back" and "Blind Beat" respectively). For those whose erogenous zones respond better to synthesizers, Ursula 1000's sweet, rubbery and sensual boogie re-rub "Be The One" should get the juices flowing.

The Silver Rider - "George Gio Metro" - (7:15) 115 BPM
Review: For the latest ChopShop missive, label boss DJ butcher has taken a back seat in order to let his roster shine. This third installment in the Summer Is Early series pits four re-edit heroes against each other for a disco bloodbath with no losers. First up Situation tackles the immortal Betty Davis Eyes riff on "Kim Sun", while Carrot Green ventures down Mexico-way for the Latino acid disco of "Me Recuso". Fingerman channels some vintage Larry Levan vibes on "Boogie Beatdown" before The Silver Rider wraps things up the funky guitar and slap bass frenzy that is "George Gio Metro".

Review: DJ Butcher is keeping the disco train a runnin' with the latest instalment of his label's much loved compilation series "Chopshop Turns Me On". Now on its fourth outing, the series is as good as ever, this time featuring Situation's saucy half time space-grinder "Hot Meter", Butcher's own Fender Rhodes-fuelled boogie fest "The Charms Of Chamille", JMRS' killer Moroder-esque rework of "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)" and the deep, synth washes of closer "Daylight" by Andy Kidd.

Review: West Country nu-disco dons Situation are the latest outfit to and compile and mix an installment of Nang's popular Beach Disco Sessions series. Happily, they've dug deep into their crates, putting together a selection that blends back catalogue material from the Nang and Tirk labels (Ruf Dug's quirky mix of Klein & MBO's Italo-disco classic "Dirty Talk", the blissful nu-Balearica of Sorcerer, AN2's overlooked rework of Space's "Carry On, Turn Me On") with vintage material and overlooked gems from a decade of nu-disco (see the early Hans-Peter Lindstrom remix of Fuzz Against Junk's "Country Clonk"). Naturally, there are a few of their own tracks and remixes in there, too, including the deliciously woozy deep house cut "Here Comes The Sun" and a sublime, string-drenched remix of Love/Money's "Strange Kind of Love".
