Review: Mike Misiu is no newcomer to the edits game, having previously contributed to releases on Secret Squirrel and Bastedos. Here he joins another renowned rework outfit, Brooklyn disco swingers Razor 'N' Tape, bringing with him a tight collection of floor-friendly revisions. He opens with the rising and falling disco orchestration, crunchy Clavinet lines and subtle acid tweaks of 107 BPM winner "Loose Change", before wrapping more TB-303 lines and heavy analogue bass around delay-laden boogie vocals and proto-house beats on the brilliant "All A Dream". Elsewhere, "Roll The Dice" is a gently dubbed chunk of masculine peak-time disco-funk, while "Black Magic" is an undulating, filter disco treat.

Review: SBM is a new collaboration between Philpot co-founder Micahel Baumann (AKA Soulphiction) and the mysterious Blunted Monkz (an artist who has made just a handful of appearances on EPs and compilations since debuting in 2011). Happily, the quality threshold remains high throughout. Opener "Gotta Have It" sets the tone, serving up a rolling deep house cut built around low-slung dub disco bass, echoing vocal samples and layered percussion. "Tripolis Jam" is an even sweatier and more intensely percussive affair, with restless cowbells and heavier drum hits working in unison with a fuzzy, punk-funk bassline. Finally, they unveil the EP's undisputed banger, "Criticize", a woozy but energy-packed, jazzy deep house jam featuring vocal snippets from the Alexander O'Neal classic of the same name.

Review: Lego Edit is Italian Diego Lelli, who has been in overdrive the last year: hammering out a few dozen releases already. Does this guy ever sleep between all the edits and DJing? What's your secret pal? On Dancefloor Edits Hot Barbecue, hear that inspirational Martin Luther King Jr speech over an uplifting lo-slung disco groove that is "Billy Groove" (Lego dub 5 AM). Next up, hear the drummer get wicked on the funk explosion of "Hot Stone" (Lego ReFunk) and finally just to provide some variety: we have got some good ol' fashioned funky R&B in the form of a right classic (spliced to perfection!) for modern audiences on "Link Ollins" (Lego dub). All killer no filler right here kids!

Review: In 2015 DJ Harvey made his hugely anticipated return to Ibiza and made Pikes the home for his Mercury Rising debut, a concept inspired by the beauty of the real Ibiza, the incredible history of the hotel (aka The Chelsea of Ibiza) and a genuine love for music. This Balearic spirit perfectly and poetically encapsulated by DJ Harvey has seen Mercury Rising widely recognised as the most special night to embrace the island in over a decade. The next step in the story sees him launch Pikes Records - the first record label founded by Pikes owners and Ibiza Rocks co-founders Andy McKay and Dawn Hindle. From his own Locussolus project's slow burner "Next To You" (Marcy Rising edit), to fellow London disco heroes Idjut Boys who serve up "One For Kenny" where they get really deep. There's also party favourite Gatto Fritto with "Invisible College" and Eric 'Dr. Dunks' Duncan, on form as always, with Chris Munoz on the scorcher "Zona De Perigo".

Review: Earlier this year, Dan Snaith raised a few eyebrows by releasing a FabricLive mix that was almost entirely made up of previously unheard Daphni productions. It's some of those 19 productions, presented in extended and fully-fledged form, that make up the bulk of Joli Mai, Snaith's second Daphni full-length. It's a far more varied and evocative set than its largely dark, percussion-heavy predecessor, variously touching on dreamy, head-in-the-clouds late night house, acid-fired, off-kilter dancefloor psychedelia, bustling Afro-house fusion, stripped-back dub disco, revivalist rave thumpers and, in the case of stunning closer "Life is What You Make It", languid instrumental bliss.

Flesh World (Kapote's Drum Jam version) - (9:59) 117 BPM

Review: Having spent the last few years giddily hopping between labels, COEO has decided to settle down. Flesh World is the Munich-based twosome's second release of 2017 for Toy Tonics, an imprint they first graced back in 2014. As usual, they're in a positive frame of mind, serving up a trio of tracks rich with both the feel good pulse of disco and boogie, and the metronomic heaviness of house. Both "Flesh World" and "In Motion" explore similar sonic territory, with the duo working a range of ear-pleasing samples from killer old disco and boogie cuts. Best of all, though, is the Kapote Drum Jam version of "Flesh World", which adds a little percussive pressure to an already celebratory workout.

Review: While more often associated with punk-funk and dirty Italo style dancefloor workouts, Gomma's vast back catalogue contains a string of disco and boogie-inspired gems. To highlight the fact, the label has decided to release a series of EPs featuring some of its finest "Disco Jams". This first installment begins with a fine WhoMadeWho interpretation of Munk and LCD Soundsystem founder James Murphy's Sly Stone style growler, "Kick Out The Chairs", before charging into dub disco-meets-proto-house territory via In Flagranti's "In The Silver White Box". There's another chance to admire Dimitri From Paris and DJ Rocca's Prelude Records tribute, "Eros Disco Theme", while original NYC disco don Nicky Siano channels the spirit of Loose Joints on his fantastic rework of KDMS's "Never Stop Believing".

Review: File Under Disco: releasing 100% original disco since 2012. Their latest release is by Oh Yeah, who produced the massive "Nothing But The Beat" last year which included a mighty Hot Toddy remix. Now they deliver yet another dancefloor weapon of a track: it's reminiscent of classic Michael Jackson or '80's Motown. Remixes are by Perth's finest Dr Packer: two in fact. The first injects much more funk and dancefloor dynamics into the track, while the dub mix does exactly what it says on the tin. New Zealand's Frank Booker is in top form as always, getting that soulful '70s vibe on and finally Razor 'N Tape's Dicky Trisco & JKriv go for a New York City circa '83 kinda joint: which will take you back to the days of Studio 54.

Then there is Yam Who? dropping the remix business and in the process inject the track with some added dancefloor dynamics: for later in the night when any serious DJ needs to turn the heat up a notch or two.

As yet untitled, each of the four cuts sparkle and shimmy with his signature warm flare. From the belting vocal harmonies on "Track 1" to the loose-limbed percussive and wonked-out bassline of "Track 4", Hotmood has cooked up another superlative vibration fest. Start counting down the days...

Till You Surrender (DJ Fudge Disco mix) - (7:01) 123 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Those with good memories may remember the original version of "Surrender". A big disco-house number in Dave 'Joey Negro' Lee's classic style, the Taka Boom-voiced club anthem first hit stores way back in 2001. While that release was full of filter-heavy funky and soulful house versions, this revived edition re-invents it as a sweeping, string-drenched disco treat. In other words, DJ Fudge's fresh remix is more Salsoul than Daft Punk; so much so, in fact, that it feels like a long lost relic of the original disco era, rather than a remix of a 16 year-old soulful house bomb. If you dig disco, then you really need it in your life.

Review: Second time around for Lord Echo's Mara TK hook-up, "The Sweetest Meditation", which was one of the standout cuts on the Kiwi producer's brilliant Harmonies album. This time, the "high-rolling summertime opus" is given the remix treatment, with the good Lord kicking things off via a warm, jazzy and sun-kissed "Club Mix" full of wavy deep house attitude and Roy Ayers style Vibraphone solos. Julien Dyre utilizes the original version's dub style bassline to the full on his boogie-tinged deep house interpretation, while Borrowed CS's top-notch reworks sits somewhere between the Detroit deep house of Andres and Joe Clausell's percussive Afro-house productions. Arguably best of all, though, is "The Sweetest Dub", a rolling and echo-laden, dub disco style re-make.

from $1.97
Review: Following an extended hiatus, Daco returns to Paper Recordings with an EP stuffed full of high-grade dancefloor moments. Opener "The Uprise" is particularly potent, featuring as it does a killer combination of "I Feel Love" style arpeggio bass, Kraftwerkian computer vocals, driving beats, spacey chords and some superbly manipulated spoken word samples ("the money, the drugs, the oil, the guns, the war, the uprising!"). It's followed by a proto-house and Italo-disco influenced alternative version that is arguably even closer in tone to vintage Giorgio Moroder, while bonus cut "Faith" is a deep, woozy and dreamy chunk of Balearic house laden with melancholic strings and a superb vocal by Mikey Raphael.

Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a collaborative debut album (on Sound Signature, no less) from London broken beat veterans Dego and Kaidi Tatham. As with their previous joint releases on 2000 Black, Rush Hour, Eglo and, of course, Sound Signature, it's the duo's love of rich, jazz-fuelled musicality, sun-kissed melodies and loose, languid rhythms that shines through. There are naturally nods towards disco, boogie, jazz-funk, Afrobeat, hip-hop and classic "bruk", with a stellar cast list of guest musicians and vocalists swinging by to lend a hand. If Herbie Hancock decamped to Ladbroke Grove and made an album with Bugz in the Attic, it would probably sound like this. In our book, that's a very good thing indeed.

Review: Having spent much of the last two years establishing Discoalition as one of the edit scene's more reliable labels, boss man Seen On TV has finally decided to deliver a follow-up to his 2015 EP French Kiss. It's an expansive, action-packed affair, with six solid reworks to choose from. Highlights include the elastic bass and bustling disco grooves of opener "Non Stop Dancing", the saucer-eyed, loved-up boogie bliss of "French Kiss", the thrillingly loopy and intoxicating "Lazy Afternoon" (a DJ-friendly instrumental version of an early '80s cut that's notoriously hard to mix) and the hazy disco-funk warmth of the two tunes that close the EP, "Never Enough" and "Shift". The latter, with its spiraling horn lines and twinkling vibraphone lines, is particularly memorable.

Review: Hot Digits enjoyed Kellini's last EP so much that they asked him to come back and this time he's brought fellow Norwegian Saskin S: who follows his The Game EP from last year. The two bring some serious heat with this bunch of energetic nu-disco cuts. Starting off with the neon-lit boogie of "Break A Leg" followed by the low slung groove of "In Doubt" which really takes things deep. It comes alongside remixes from rising Irish producer Stephen Richards, whose rendition of "In Doubt" gets some groovy summertime vibes happening (to get any decent Disco Stu in the mood) while Chewy Rubs' From The Deep dub of "Resaca" takes things down a darker and headier route: which would be perfect for late night mood lighting on the dancefloor.

Review: Neil Diablo's To Rack & Ruin edit series has been on fire of late, delivering killer reworks by The Rejected, Phil Gerus, and Que Sakamoto & NT. Volume 13 contains a quartet of collaborative reworks by Italian pals DJ Rocca and N2B. First up is "Inergy", a dirty and full-throttle disco workout that contains a fantastic extended percussion break midway through. Rocca and N2B reach for the disco delays on the super-sweet shuffler "Mister Cheryl", before whipping their shirts off for a muscular disco-funk hoedown (the sax-laden stomp that is "Music For Your Lose"). Finally, the tape delays return on the dense, disco-goes-proto-house closer "Powa", which may well be our pick of the bunch.

Review: Deeply rooted in '70s and '80s disco, funk, boogie and rock, Raico Pena is the founder of Rare Wiri Records. Rayko's influences are masterfully interpreted and transformed into modern day dancefloor bombs. His name has appeared on literally dozens of great records scattered across labels like Eskimo, Is It Balearic? and of course Nang who present "No Stopping". His debut album entitled Rebirth first appeared on the London based imprint back in 2014 and this is his third release for them. Starting off with the original version, which is a deep/lo-slung disco joint for lovers and featuring Tania Harosha's gorgeous vocals. Ron Basejam (Delusions Of Grandeur/Futureboogie) takes it further into slo-mo territory, creating a nice chilled atmosphere while Santa Esperanza Records boss Ilya Santana (who has

Review: Dutchman Bas Roos is the latest producer to contribute to Exploited's Shir Khan-curated Black Jukebox series. He kicks off a fine EP via "Downtown", a lumpy, bumpy chunk of dusty, piano-laden peak-time goodness driven forwards by bustling drums and a killer disco style bassline. You'll find more blissful piano solos on the similarly hustling, low-slung "One Way", which also makes great use of impassioned disco-soul vocal snippets and restless handclap samples. Elsewhere, "Take Life Easy" is an impeccable hybrid of jazzy disco samples and swinging deep house percussion, while "Ugly House" sounds like a long lost collaboration between Kevin Saunderson's Inner City Project, Chez Damier and Sheffield-based dusty house specialist Thatmanmonkz.

Review: Originally started in Mexico, Fran Deeper now runs the Spa In Disco imprint out of Mallorca in Spain. Over the last few years has brought us some killer jams by the likes of Rayko, Super Agente 86, Jose Hdez and David Manso to name but a few. It is now over to Italian guy in Bristol Kiu D with the Small Steps EP. Beginning with the deeply percussive nu-disco joint that is the title track, "Smoke" gets all sexy and housey on us in a very late night fashion. "Wiper & True" gets some Kaidi Tatham style nu-jazz soul vibes into the mix: that Herbie Hancock style synth bass really doing the business. Finally, there's a remix by the formerly Dubai based Brit Andy Buchan with an irresistible nu-disco makeover of "Small Steps".

from $1.97
Review: If you've been to a festival this summer, it's likely that you will have heard "Surrender", the first collaboration between Running Back man Gerd Janson and Black Jukebox curator Shan. A pleasing slab of feel-good disco-house with added carnival percussion, the track's appeal likes as much in the duo's ability to place life-affirming peaks (built around colossal disco samples) in all the right places as the rock solid nature of the production. Basically, it sounds like an anthem and is fast turning into one. There's a similarly old school feel to "Gentle Place", too. The track's analogue bassline and layered, carnival house style percussion is brilliantly off-set by the kind of swirling Balearic chords and eyes-closed vocal samples so familiar from Janson's Talamanca System work with Phillip Lauer and Mark Barrott.

Review: Story has it that Chicago disco legend Sadar Bahar discovered Ben (aka Cosmic Force of Clone/Creme Organization fame) Spaander's Utrecht based studio, and it's said to be housing around 60 synths. Electro fiend Spaander 'was charmed by the electronic elements in Sadar's funk and Sadar loved Ben's ideas.' They claim that nothing was sampled on these two tracks. There's undoubtedly an old school flavour to "We Are Righteous People" with its funky bass, sleazy guitar licks and bongo drums galore over spacy synths. Next up "Bouncing Atoms" gets the party started in fine form with dusty/live sounding drums, more frenetic guitar work and the mandatory cowbells going off all over the place!

George Clinton-approved FSQ add a little more drive in the drum department and swooning focus on the harmonies, Nark strips back the layers and polishes with a generous dose of acid while long-time Soul Clapper Michael The Lion rebuilds the elements into a roaring piece of piano-hammering gospel house feelgoodness. Feel the love!

Review: Laroze may not be one of the more hyped members of the new wave of French deep house producers currently making their mark, but his occasional releases are often more impressive than those by his contemporaries. Past 20 Years is his most expansive EP to date and is full of immaculately produced treats, from the swirling disco-house brilliance of opener "You Gotta Keep On" and thrusting warehouse bounce of revivalist rave-era house workout "7AM Feelings", to the anthem-like cheeriness of "What About Me". Interestingly, the EP's two deeper and more subtle productions - "Arcade Desire" and "What About Me" - are arguably the most impressive of the lot. Subtle, smoky, dusty and soul-soaked, they prove that he's about more than just party-starting hedonism.

Review: Some 19 years on front the release of their debut single - on, of course, Drop Music - Inland Knights are still going strong. First up on the prolific duo's second single of 2017 is "Say Watt", a formidable peak-time workout built around rubbery disco bass, jazzy keys and their usual no-nonsense, East Midlands deep house beats. Interestingly, "Walk On" sees them depart from their trademark style, instead delivering a shuffling electro/deep house/acid hybrid featuring the kind of wayward vocal that was once all the rage in quirky Japanese pop songs. Crucially, when they allow the beats and acid lines room to breathe, it's something of a heavyweight jam.

Review: Tulioxi is back with his first 2017 release on Alexander Robotnick's Hot Elephant. Mattia Tuliozi has already had two previous releases for the imprint and this new effort showcases the artist's development. Made with a large selection of electronic instruments; from Roland Grooveboxes to old samplers, modular synthesis and electronic drum shaping - the tracks emanate hot and fresh vibes. The dark and grinding arpeggio of "Apollo 409" sits somewhere between Italo disco and EBM: it's a brooding yet infectious affair. It gets a properly cosmic rendition up next by fellow Italian nu-disco legend from Venice: Bottin. Second original offering "Animal Funk" is a more traditional disco affair with progressive rock tendencies. It too gets remixed by boss man Robotnick, whose rendition gets well funky and more upbeat with added dancefloor dynamics.

Review: A chilled Brazilian-tinged boogie cut from the recent Joey Negro epic entitled Produced With Love gets transformed into a piano fuelled, peaktime banger by Swedish jazz musician/producer Crackazat. He retains the Latino flavour of the original but 'adds bags of dance floor energy.' Dave Lee has been one of the most prolific producers in dance music over the last three decades and we would highly recommend the album to anyone who considers themselves a fan of proper house, disco or soul music. It features collaborations with such legends as Diane Charlemagne, Linda Clifford and Alex Mills. In addition to remixes of recent heroes of the scene such as Horse Meat Disco and Peven Everett.

Not even taking a whole slew of singles on the likes of Basic Fingers, DOC, Kampana and House Of Disco into account, he's more than made up for lost time. "Flecha De Fogo" is a heavy sunset soul piece that works around a Nazare Pereira samba with woozy chords, layered percussion and an alluring vocal. "Todo Mundo Tem Amor" takes us deeper into Aroop's dancefloor psyche with a much more driving beat. Golden.

There are four cuts here to get up and down to. "Funkier Than That" is a snappy, Minneapolis-style majestic funker, "Pushin' On" is perky synth-pop and "Making Love" is fast, sweaty and a thrill a minute. Lastly "YYT Shake (Funk Hunk remix)" is a cool slice of vintage B-Boy hip-hop.

Review: Man Power has proven on many occasions to be adept at all manner of different moods within the hardware house canon, but on this occasion he's particularly focusing on creating an exotic feeling out of mechanical means. "Tropical Bastard" is a fitting title for this project for Not An Animal Records, with the original steeped in driving patterns of rhythm and melody that approximate a flavour of far flung lands while mutating the feeling into something more club-minded. Lord Of The Isles goes one step further with a remix that ramps the modulation up to devilishly wonky levels. "Tropical Bastard 2" is an entirely different beast that plays on a cinematic vision of tropical escape, but with an acid thread pulsing through it. Then the Frank Butters remix finishes the EP off with a more submerged, but equally mischievous take.

Review: Name a highly respected and innovative label in techno and there's a strong chance Chaim has blessed it. Moscoman's Disco Halal is a perfect fit for Chaim who's signature flexes around the alluring, mystical and hypnotic aesthetics and instrumentations of the east. "Perfect Circle" is the perfect example as it charms the softest of snakes from the deepest of pockets then brainwashes them with an array of trippy vocal stutters and spine-rippling chords. "Ha Alla" maintains the spiritual feels with a little more steel drum introspection while "Slower Circle" takes elements of the lead track and brings them right down into a low-lidded slumber jam. Sweet dreams.

Review: Influential and prolific, Dave Lee has been one of house music's major proponents of soulful, disco-tinged, vocal tracks. Without question, he was instrumental in its development. Produced With Love is only the second ever Joey Negro album to be released and the first for more than 20 years. It proves that dance music with character still exists and rather than rely on sampling older records, the overwhelming majority of music is newly recorded. Rest assured that there's quite the supporting cast here, on the vocal front: the late great Diane Charlemagne on "Overnight Sensation", Canadian songstress and frequent Nick Holder collaborator Sacha Williamson on "I Recognize" and the legendary Linda Clifford on "Won't Let Go". Fellow London disco dons Horsemeat Disco collaborate on "Dancing Into The Stars" too. The second half of the collection focuses on Lee's impeccable remixes and yes: there is a version of "Must Be The Music" and a track by the inimitable Peven Everett entitled "Love Is Thicker Than Water" alongside several other gems.

Review: Cosmic-minded Brazilians get busy with Razor N Tape with an artistically presented eight track collection of native edits and originals. Charming from the off-beat funk of "7 8 E 1", we're soon hammered by the steady stamps of "Botoque", massaged by the come-to-bed soul of "Formula 1" and whipped into a shamanistic frenzy by the percussion-fuelled "E Um Barato". Complete with a cheeky little 7" brother - that features the acid slapping Latin club smasher "Margarida" and the ghetto-busting funk of "Blaus" - these are the type of packages RSD was invented for. Party time.

On the fittingly titled The Sound Of A Feeling EP he serves up the charmingly titled "Shit Wizard" a soulful, nu-disco boogie-down jam. "We Walk To War" in its original form is the kind of lo-slung/slo-mo disco that really floats our boat, but the remix up next by Tee Mango really injects it with some Stevie Wonder style soul-funk that'll help get your shine on. The title track is the deepest and most emotive offering here, with its sublime and hypnotic qualities being pushed along by a tight groove.

Review: Following on from their successful hook up with 2020 Vision, nu-disco heroes Crazy P have now joined forces with the Classic label (how has this not happened before?!) and here we get the "Truelight EP". Spacey retro soul balladry gives way to filthy cosmic funk on "One True Light" and "In My Hands" is nasty Padlock EP-style disco of the highest order. Hot Toddy (aka Chris Todd of Crazy P) remixes the latter into hypnotic acid and band co-founder Ron Basejam turns the former into chugging, sun-warped Balearic boogie.

"Giovanni Frizzante" is something of a life-affirming, lose-your-shit peak-time treat, with the German producer brilliantly joining the dots between sleazy Italo-disco (represented by a chugging arpeggio bassline) and cheery Italian house (a range of brilliant piano solos and accompanying positive electronic elements). The track's anthem-like elements are pushed to the fore on Prins Thomas's dizzyingly good remix, which craftily replaces the original's arpeggio lines with rubbery synth-bass and a full tablet's worth of loved-up vibes. The bubbly nu-disco bounce of bonus cut "D-Trainse (No Cure Mix)" is also worth a listen.

Review: Berlin's Charlie Smooth: if you don't know, you really don't know! A stalwart of the German capital's scene for close to 10 years who is a promoter of the Disco Train parties and one of the minds behind the seminal Get Deep parties at local institution about//blank until its final shindig in 2016. The boy from Bulgaria now presents his newest venture: Smooth Operators. Offering up four respectful edits, strictly for DJ use only. From the sultry Afrobeat of "I'm Alive" to the '70s latin disco of "Mesta Lanion" or a bit of ol' fashioned funk for good measure on "El Fen".

Review: Norwegian Pandreas last appeared on local imprint Maksimal with some spacey nu-disco business. He's finally hit the big time: if an EP for local powerhouse Full Pupp qualifies? We sure think it does. The Bergen native throws down a wicked EP following up great EPs by Velfred, Chmmr and label boss Prins Thomas. High octane opener "Trommer Traumer" gets things off to a good start, title track "Back 2 School" is a bleepy jackathon using a sick 303 acid bassline. "Ohm" is cruise control that holds the suspense before you can drop a bigger tune and finally "R.G." is the deepest of the bunch: lo-slung and perfect for the early evening or sunrise set alike.

Review: Long serving Sheffield twosome Hiem has a new album ready to drop. First, though, we get a taste of what's to come in the shape of "Highlife", the duo's first single for two years. It's a jaunty and groovy affair, with band member Bozz doing his best Phil Oakey impression over a dub disco-meets-synth-pop backing track rich in rubbery bass guitar and sleazy saxophones. Nang regular Pete Herbert is on remix duty, delivering two floor-friendly interpretations in his usual elastic nu-disco style. He adds some Italo-disco inspired synth solos and fizzing electronic noises, re-playing the duo's bass guitar part on his favoured synthesizer of choice. Of the two, it's the Dub that we prefer, though the vocal version is almost equally as impressive.
