Review: Chopshop boss DJ Butcher has never been afraid to share the wealth and this latest is release is no different, featuring four different producers with four different tunes. Butcher bravely steps up with the Eminem-meets-70s soul "Slim Shaddy", Ill Advised goes loop-crazy for the celestial funk joy of "Love Is What We Need" and Voodoo Whiskey goes for the bass twang jugular with "Suck My Sausage". Finally the curtain closes with the tight and sophisticated disco-funk inferno that is "Drama Queen". Hot stuff!

Review: Those who pay close attention to the contemporary edit scene should already be aware of Voodoo Whiskey. The Newcastle-based producer has previously released music on a wide number of labels - Undercover Operations, Editorial and Chopshop included - and here pops up on '80s Child's Masterworks Music. He begins with the bumpin', delay-laden disco-house swing of "Blueberry Muffins", before dipping a toe into the world of filter-heavy disco-funk on the pleasingly sweet and punchy "Get Next To You". Elsewhere, be sure to check out the funked-up disco-house roller "Tutti Frutti" (the main sax riff, in particular, is ace), and closer "Kittiwake Kebab", whose combination of hazy instrumentation and shuffling breakbeats is particularly refreshing.

Review: Having cut his teeth on disco re-edit compilation EPs, Newcastle's Kaayli Williams finally gets his chance to shine with this solo EP under his Voodoo Whiskey moniker. He doesn't fluff his chances either, delivering four prime cuts of vintage sounding disco funk jams. "Doggin The Do" is a celebratory anthem complete with a thick housey thump underneath, "Get Ready" totally goes there with the sax (and pulls it off), "Mellowwell" is a well, mellow, '70s joint, and we finish with the slap bass seduction of "Sexy Lady".

Review: DJ Butcher's excellent re-edit label Chopshop has entertained many different takes on disco, but has yet to tackle dub. Until now that is. Here we get four different artists all delivering some seriously dubbed out sonic adventures. Voodoo Whiskey goes first with the seriously cool, low-slung funk haze of "Cairo", while DJ Ace's "Viva La Raza" manages to combine Balearic beats with very light reggaeton vibes. Situation take it further with a totally toasted version of The Rolling Stones' "Under My Thumb", whilst the label boss himself wraps up things with the laid back, glistening electro-funk of "No Taboos".

Review: With sunshine bathing much of Britain, it seems a fitting time for the Editorial label to celebrate the arrival of summer. Heat WAVs, their latest split EP, oozes sun-kissed warmth. Voodoo Whiskey kicks things off with the hazy Balearic deep house bliss of "Desert Stroll", before "Joutro Mundo" drops some compressed disco edit action in the shape of the rather lovely "Roller Shake". Woodhead and Hakatone continue the celebratory feel with a pair of righteous disco-funk bumpers (the superb "Party Down Tonight" and "Sugarbaby" respectively), before Tikki draws an excellent EP to a close with "The Crooner", a curious but effective combination of easy listening vocals and swinging house grooves.
