Review: The Funk District strikes back with a brand new label that will take you deep down the rabbit hole with a mix of styles and original sounds, not to mention a global reach when it comes to talent. The very first release arrives with four outstanding mixes that combines a smoky blues flavour with laid back funk for uniquely soulful and danceable results. Mixes including a hot reworking from Italy's legendary LTJ Xperience and a smooth collaboration with Argentinian key wizard Sokur. A sumptuous, subtly disco-infused house mix completes the package with a flourish of funky guitar and languid Rhodes piano.

Review: Some killer collaborative action here, as sometime Saint Wax and Masterworks Music man Gledd (real name Edoardo Barbi) joins forces with prolific producer The Funk District (AKA Mexican scene stalwart Fernando Mendoza) for the very first time. The pair serve up three top-notch cuts that combine extensive samples from gospel soul and gospel disco outings with their own chunky drums and instrumental flourishes: excitable, occasionally loopy disco-house slammer 'The Rabbit', the more lolloping, piano-heavy bounce of 'Thankful' and the hard bass, percussive hustle, insatiable riffs and righteous, preacher-man vocals of 'New Rising'. Art of Tones remixes the latter cut, turning it into a classy-sounding slab of disco-house/gospel house fusion that arguably makes greater use of both the sampled lead vocal and the pair's funky instrumentation.

Paul Older - "Love" - (6:30) 118 BPM
Review: Four very serviceable slices of contemporary funk and disco here courtesy of Mexico's Super Spicy Records, who describe their remit as "the hottest and spiciest of funk, disco and jazzy music around the globe". Monsieur Van Pratt kicks things off with 'Forever Funk', with its parping sax and familiar spoken vocal sample ("in the beginning, before there was house, before there was techno... there was funk"), Igor Gonya & Crack D bring the brassy Blaxploitation vibes on 'Two-Piece Orchestra', The Funk District take us right back to the soulful sound of early disco on 'Watcha Gonna Do' while Paul Older's 'Love' is camp, Euro-y and strutty, with more of a late 70s feel.

Review: Mexican label Saint Wax bring us an EP featuring four disco/funk cuts that are heavily infused with influences from global music. The Funk District AKA Fernando Mendoza is up first with two Afro-leaning cuts: 'Gogo Mama', with its rolling, interlocking percussion and sing-song chanted vocal, and the stop-start 'Easy Easy'. Then it's over to Vagabundo Club Social, who blend funk, jazz, disco, acid and Latin vibes to splendid effect on 'Cumbi' before bringing the EP to a close with 'Ki-kongo', which as the name suggests is another Afro-inspired affair, this time featuring much brass parpery.

Review: We've become accustomed to the Editorial label offering up expansive EPs packed to the rafters with tasty edits and reworks, but even by the imprint's high standards Raw Funk is rather special. It begins with a bumpin' chunk of hazy and excitable sample house courtesy of Cody Currie (the brilliant 'Aquarian Girl') and ends with some slow-motion, downtempo disco sweetness from Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee ('Slippin'); in between, you'll find a fine rearrangement of an organ-laden chunk of sweaty dancefloor soul (the Funk District's 'An Evening With El Diablo'), some slap-bass-sporting disco-funk (Matt Hughes' 'Get Down'), and a righteous trip into driving disco territory (the Owl's low-slung 'Funky Feelin').

Review: Having recently notched up a sixth year in business, Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint is in a celebratory mood - hence this all-action round-up of recent delights and unheard treats from the disco-loving label. Encompassing no less than 30 tunes, the collection giddily skips between warming beatdown disco (P-Sol's "Walter"), Mark E style slo-mo loop jams (Vigi's "I'll Be There") and glassy-eyed Balearic nu-disco (Picklejam's "Untitled Love"), before raising its hands skywards as the peak-time party-starters begin to appear thick and fast. Highights in this category include the vibrant jazz-house flex of Dexter Jones' "Swing Thing", the bustling boogie re-edit business of Monsieur Von Pratt's "Let's Dance" and the hearty disco-funk heaviness of Chewy Rubs' "Funky Bee Bop".

Review: Nine highly enjoyable slices of contemporary funk and disco here courtesy of Fran Deeper's Mallorca-based Spa In Disco. Some of the artists are well-known, at least in the appropriate circles (C Da Afro, Funk District, Monsieur Van Pratt); some are less so, while there's one genuine first-gen survivor in the form of Spiteri, a legendary Venezuelan player who gave London's 70s disco scene a dose of Latin flava. Don't expect too much in the way of radical reinvention - these grooves are so faithful to the sounds of the 70s that we had to check a few of 'em weren't actually 40 years old! - but the standard throughout is impeccable.

Review: A warm welcome back to the Funk District, a label-hopping re-editor and producer who's previous solo single dropped way back in 2018 on Masterworks Music. He begins his first Furious Mandrill outing with "Stuck On The Line", a loopy chunk of warm, sun-kissed disco house rich in jazzy piano solos, bluesy vocal samples and chunky, bass-heavy grooves. He breaks up the bits a bit more on "Melas" - think heavily chopped and looped Mexican disco-funk samples, rolling disco beats and heavy organ riffs - before joining forces with Sokur on the beefed-up tropical disco-funk of "The Horn". Finally, the Cancun-based artist reaches for the dub delays on a warm and woozy disco-house excursion rich in elongated pads, clipped guitars and bustling beats ("Abstract Love").

You'll excuse us the full track-by-track, then, but suffice to say that this is the label that helped launch the careers of Dr Packer and Natasha Kitty Katt, both of whom feature here, and with names like Ziggy Phunk, Rayko, Alkalino, Chuggin' Edits and Fabiolous Barker also on bill, you should already have a pretty good idea what to expect. Classy stuff all round, and a great VFM package - here's to five more years!

Review: A cross-border collaboration here as Austin, Texas-based nu disco producer The Silver Rider joins forces with his Mexican counterpart Fernando Mendoza, AKA The Funk District, for a split EP on Whiskey Disco. The Silver Rider brings us 'Woman', a pacey, looping funk groove with a neat line in rasping bass and spoken, Euro-style vox, and 'Hustle Up', which comes on like a Blaxploitation funk jam. Then it's over to The Funk Rider for 'Imaki Ra Reo', a lively, Latin-leaning affair with a hefty bottom end and some truly wild sax blasts, and 'The Root Of Evil', which like 'Hustle Up' has an understated, soundtrack-y feel.

Review: Fresh from an impressive contribution to a recent multi-artist EP on Editorial, Cancun's Fernando Mendoza once again dons the Funk District alias and serves up some more funky dancefloor heat. First up is the bounding Afro-disco/Afro-funk fusion of "Freaky Stuff", a rubbery but decidedly heavy version of a familiar favourite, quickly followed by the filter-sporting Afro disco-funk bounce of "Do It Right". Arguably even better is "Soul Vibration", a booming, full throttle, house-friendly tweak of a slamming disco-funk belter. Bets of all, though, is closing cut "Tin Lin Non", where subtle house beats underpin a rearranged version of a steamy Afro-funk/Afro-disco cut rich in glistening guitars and undulating bass.

Review: Hold tight for more boozy dancefloor excess from the Editorial crew, a collective of re-editors whose musical output is always worth a listen. The seven-track missive begins with a chunk of electric piano-laden samba/jazz-funk magic courtesy of Nik M, before sometime Hot Digits and Midnight Riot man Frank Virgillio offers a more piano and percussion-laden chunk of sun-kissed Brazilian magic. Labor of Love gets the disco juices flowing via the cowbell-heavy shuffle of disco funker "Like I Do", The Funk District reach for the Clavinets on hazy roller "Baby Got It" and I Gemin smothers a tasty groove in liquid synths and deep house flourishes on "Oh Baby". To round things off, C Da Afro rearranges a warm and groovy electrofunk jam and Rica lays down some colourful nu-disco deepness.

Review: Fingerman's Hot Digits label has now notched up 50 releases. To celebrate this landmark occasion, the man himself has selected 25 of his favourite cuts from the label's rapidly expanding back catalogue. As a showcase for everything that's good about the imprint, it does a bang up job, gleefully jogging between exotic mid-tempo disco and disco-funk (Frank Virgilio, Dr Packer, The funk District), slo-mo disco-acid (Fingerman's tremendous rework of B-Jam's "Sundog"), kaleidoscopic, reworked '80s boogie business (Casual Connection, Melon Bomb, the hard-tweaked filters and heady loop business of Chewy Rubs), tried-and-tested party-starters (Smashed Atoms, Get Down Edits remixing Stephen Richards) and giddy peak-time workouts (Shit Hot Soundsystem, Dave Gerrard, Thomas Maslo, Kiu D). As the old saying goes, this is all killer, no filler.

Review: Two years ago, our fancy was suitably tickled by the second "Vanguardia" compilation from Mexican edits outlet Deep Sense. Predictably, this delayed eight-track follow-up is also rather good. It kicks off with a spacey, synth-heavy chunk of Brazilian boogie, lightly beefed up by reliable sorts Hotmood, before sprinting through chunky, hip-wigglin' deep disco-soul (the Funk District's "Soul Dose"), bustling peak-time disco-house (Levantine's "Be Myself"), groovy, horn-toting disco sing-alongs (Sould Out's lolloping, mid-tempo rub "Midnite Ride"), sparkling, Jam and Lewis style '80s soul ("Watch Out" by Monsieur Von Pratt) and sun-kissed, sllo-mo Balearic/synth-funk fusion (Flodz's brilliant "Governor's Ball").

Review: In the words of Paper Disco, episode six of their floor-friendly "Trash The Wax" series delivers "plenty of party pumping offerings". Predictably, proof of the set's club-ready status arrives via Hi-FI Sean's compilation opening remix of IPG v Hot Toddy's "Slow Motion Cowboy", which delivers a funk-fuelled riot of delay-laden guitars, funk rock attitude and sizzling dub disco grooves. Naturally, the rest of the collection is similarly strong. Highlights include a rare production outing from Bill Brewster (the throbbing, off-kilter Italo-disco him of "4 U Blue"), the Balearic Italo-disco bliss of Richard Norris's "Glow", the dreamy, arpeggio-driven nu-disco warmth of Kooky and Damoon's "Walk Back Into My Life" and Sheffield stalwart Solid State's deep, epic revision of "Remnants" by Speed For Lovers.

Review: Some 18 months on from the release of the label's first retrospective compilation, Brazilian imprint About Disco presents another bumper selection of floor-filling re-edits, reworks and original productions. With 23 killer cuts to choose from, the collection provides excellent value, particularly when you factor in the eclectic nature of the reworked source material. Compare and contrast, for example, the warm and sticky Afro-disco goodness of NFC and Key Sokur's "Coming From Congo", the bass-heavy disco hustle of "Hihache" by Ozzy and the kaleidoscopic, hard-spun synth-funk brilliance of Rafael Cancian's "Queen of Zanzibar". We're also huge fans of J.B Boogie's gently lolloping and exceedingly loved-up "Love To Love", though we could say the same thing about half a dozen of the other included tracks. Stellar stuff, all told.

Review: The Funk District is Fernando Mendoza from Cancun, Mexico. This is funk on steroids basically: respectful edits of fresh and funky grooves, that are made to move people all around the world. Following up hot releases for Editorial and Hot Digits: this guy is certainly one to watch! From that distillation of a very familiar groove on "Love To Fly" which takes some slo-mo boggie action of a certain classic to new heights, or the neon-lit funk attack of "The Spaceship" (which propels into the stratosphere) or the soulful love action of "Come On Get Up" that lights up the dancefloor: it is clear that that Central America has it really going on at the moment.

Switching up the slate from last month's Slo Mo Disco from label lynchpins Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee comes this uptempo collection of star-lit disco house. Lavish organic instrumentation, loose grooves and insatiable energy running throughout; highlights include the juicy slapbass of Difusion's "You Got Everything I Want" the classic sample flip of Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee's "Daydreamz", the powerful p-funk fusion on The Funk District's "Do Yo Thang" and the sultriness and high hip Chi-town struts of Sunner Soul's "We Make Love".

Review: Mexican party-starter Fernando Mendoza AKA The Funk District has been in a rich vein of form since making his debut on Hotbox Boogie back in 2015. Two years and umpteen releases later, he pops up on the Fingerman-helmed Hot Digits Music for the very first time. He kicks things off with the bumping, hip-hop style funk breakbeats, wild harmonica and guttural male vocals of swamp funk rework "Get Up! Get Back!", before underpinning a sleazy disco-funk gem with bustling house beats on "Close to the Ground". 'Shacked", meanwhile, is a stomping, filter-heavy rearrangement of one of the best-loved, break-driven disco-funk slammers (later covered by A Certain Ratio, fact fans) and "Rock On" is a no nonsense, tooled-up disco-rock banger.

Review: This fourth audio missive from the Wonderful Times stable has been picking up plays from some of the digital re-edit scene's most revered names. Given that all four tracks are tried-and-tested disco-house treats, it's easy to see why the EP has proved popular thus far. Highlights include the sexy sax cut-ups, colossal builds, swirling effects and bumping beats of Rafael Fernandez's "Ode To A.J", the fuzzy electronics, densely layered percussion and whistling melody lines of Sould Out's "Doctor Kongas", and the celebratory disco-funk rush of The Funk District's "Time Will Tell". Hotmood's loopy but essential opener, "In A Disco", is also well worth regular rotations.
