Review: 62 collections deep and still blazing up any party in a 1000 mile radius; Katakana deliver yet another fun and funk-fuelled package. All laced with a heavy rhythmic theme, attention to groove detail is paid throughout as we're treated to range of classic and deeply dug edits. "Galaxy" sets the tone with a sleazy strutting war cry before we're hurled into a Latin frenzy on both the sultry "Camina" and the bull-fighting "Descarga". Elsewhere "Leroy Loves Ya" brings the soulful touch and "JB World" closes with a little psychedelic mystique.

Never Gonna Give You Up (Joey Negro Remixes)

Never Gonna Give You Up (Joey Negro Re-Grooved instrumental) - (6:34) 120 BPM
from $1.90
Review: Though not as celebrated as some of its contemporaries, Patrice Rushen's 1980 single "Never Gonna Give You Up" is undoubtedly a breezy, sweet-as-sugar disco treat. It arguably didn't need remixing, though if there's one man guaranteed to give it a great makeover it's housemaster turned disco don Joey Negro. He delivers killer vocal and instrumental versions, both of which give more prominence to the original beats, killer bassline, spacey synths and horns, waiting to introduce the sweeping orchestration - a dominant feature of Rushen's 1980 version - until the later stages of the track. They're the kind of mixes Tom Moulton may have produced back in the day, and there's no higher praise for a disco remixer than that.

Review: According to Timewarp, Sorraia hail from another planet. Perhaps they do? Their stunning instrumental sounds are beguiling. At once sounding warm and familiar and from a far away planet; shades of dub, Cuban, Latin and Arabic all fused with Balearic charm and precision studio polish. The eerie melodica echoes of "Adenai", the Saharan bumps and blasts of "Cadiz", the serious eastern mysticism but raw funk "Oulata" and the sliding jazz tinged blues of "Blues Rose" are just some of the highlights. Essential for fans of the Israeli funk movement such as Markey Funk.

Review: The one they call Pecoe returns on Cuttin' It Fine here with a box of absolute scorchers, bringing a real injection of energy to the table. We kick off proceedings with the enigmatic future funk sounds of the title track 'Funk Nuggets', before stretching into the more classic northern soul inspired arrangements of the well titled 'Taste Of Soul'. Next up we take a dive into the hip hop inspired grooves and vocal slices of 'Everybody Get Down', before rounding off proceedings on 'Get In The Groove', a real masterpiece of post-soul production, driven by inspired guitar solos and a cracking vocal.

People Get Up - (5:12) 120 BPM
from $1.90
Played by: LEGO EDIT
Review: Sound Exhibitions boss Funk Reverse brings us two more slices of nu-funk goodness. 'Get Down Sound' is up first, starting with house-y vocal samples and light, toppy percussion before introducing choppy guitars, an intricate live-sounding bassline and disjointed male vocal snips, the main "gonna make you dance" vocal arriving only after a brass-tastic breakdown halfway through. 'People Get Up' nudges even closer to beach house/Balearic territory, making these two contemporary funk slabs that eschew straight-up 70s pastiche, opti instead to embrace more modern influences and, as a result, end up eminently programmable in a wide range of sets.

On the first side he takes the knife to a couple of Gladys Knight classics, namely the feel-good "Don't Make Me Run Away" and the uplifting "Love Gives You The Power". On the flip it's George Duke's turn, "Say That You Will" is you all know is a sultry deep soul number for lovers while "Party Down" is definitely for night people; this one is pitched up for optimum dancefloor effectiveness too!

Review: The honour of curating the 44th instalment of Katakana's Edits series has fallen on Disco Funk Spinner, a much respected re-edit guy whose work has appeared on the likes of Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Review: The second instalment of Licked Out Funk on Funk Fusion is rip-roaring to say the least, as all 28 tracks were brought into this world with the sole purpose of getting you moving, something accomplished through big drum hits and recognisable samples. Almost every track on this compilation has a sample you'll recognise; 'Come To Skanker' is a distortion of Beatles classic 'Come Together', 'Ain't No Funkin' does a good job flipping Chaka Khan's original 'Ain't Nobody' and 'Trippin Biggie' gives the funk treatment to The Notorious BIG. This is a feel-good album of still quality tracks and you'll have a hard time not moving to the procession of boom-bap drums, big synth lines and sense of retro nostalgia.

Let Me Be - (3:20) 108 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.90
Review: German nu-funk/funk breaks stalwart Jayl Funk comes with a two-track release on his own Honkey Phonk label, and it's very much a game of two halves, Brian. 'Miracle' opens with some geetar screeching ? la 'When Doves Cry', before breaking out into an exuberant, happy-clappy soul stomper, complete with gospel choir, that's surely missed its true destiny - to soundtrack the wedding party scene in a Whoopi Goldberg rom-com. But for dirtier, rawer funk thrills head for the brass-parpin' 'Let Me', which comes on like a long lost Ike & Tina jam from the early 70s.

Review: You can't fault the value for money OR the quality here, as Funky Fever serve up a third collection of contemporary funk gems. From the liquid bass and barrio brass of Disko Killers' 'Snappy' to Giancarlo's Lelli wigged-out breakbeat-and-Hammond jam 'Organ Pipes', from the nagging sax and six-string virtuosity of Funky Brothers' 'Old Guitars' to the 70s porn squelch of Spranga's 'Funky Joint', and from the raw hip-hop soul of Piadina Funk's 'I Found The Way' to the rockier, Wild Cherry-ish leanings of Master Funk's 'I Wanna You', it's an authentic-sounding collection that comes on like the OST to the best blaxploitation flick you never saw.

Review: As ever, the Bomb Strikes imprint delivers an awesome package to us with this brand new 25 track compilation entitled 'Funk N' Beats Vol. 5', To be honest, it's exactly what it says on the tin as The Allergies head up waves and waves of funkadelic rhythms and crunchy riffs. For us the highlights have to be the futuristic drum processing and subtle percussive movements of 'Loose Gardner' from Flevans, along with the classic breakbeat fusion of 'Fire' remixed by Smoove but originally produced by the Renegades Of Jazz. With the sheer depth of the project it's easy to get lost within the tracklisting, which is always a good sign on a large scale compilation.

Review: No matter how much rare stuff gets released in this information age, there's always some even more obscure cool material yet be unearthed. Here obscure 70s LA outfit 4th Coming get the re-issue treatment: an out-there musical core consisting of Henry 'Hank' Porter, Jechonias 'Jack' S. Williams and a rotating cast of musicians, they released a handful of rare 7"s before disappearing. It wasn't until the 90s when fan DJ Shadow started bigging them up, and now we get a full collection that enables us all to finally enjoy their weird and wonderful grooves.

Review: Back in the day, D.C LaRue was one of the undoubted stars of the underground disco scene, so it makes perfect sense that Z Records boss Dave Lee has bagged a swathe of new remixes. Lee dons the familiar Joey Negro alias to kick things off with a brilliant extended interpretation of all-time LaRue fave "Cathedrals", before Ron Basejam wraps spacey synth solos and fluttering flutes around a killer slow disco groove on his fantastic rub of "Do You Want The Real Thing". Elsewhere, Glitterbox regular Dr Packer provides a rolling, delay-laden take on "Indiscreet" rich in killer disco interpretation that could well be the EP's highlight, while the Idjut Boys serve up a typically trippy, dub disco powered "Beats" version of "Let Them Dance".

Review: Meistro, Deep Sang and DJ Stylus make up the Sol Power All-Stars, a DJ/production collective from Washington DC dedicated to the many styles of African dance music. Here, they make their debut on GAMM with an excellent collection of sneaky afro-centric re-rubs. "Catch Monkey", the lead cut, offers a punchy, floor-friendly take on an Afrobeat classic. There's also a thrillingly dubbed-out, dancefloor friendly take (The "2AM Dub") that's almost an improvement on the excellent vocal original. "Let Yourself Go", meanwhile, expertly teases out a formidably percussive groove from a 1980s Afro-funk jam - all rousing horns and fluid synths. Closer "Taxi Driver", meanwhile, is a joyously celebratory juju jam. Quality stuff.

Review: This is the third album in as many years from the Bristolian hip-hop/funk duo, who are also festival favourites, so there's a good chance you already have a pretty good idea what they sound like. For the uninitiated, then old school block-party hip-hop would be one obvious point of reference, Stereo MCs another - but The Allergies throw far more than just rap into the pot, with soul, funk, jazz, R&B, breakbeat and rock elements weaving in and out of Steal The Show's 13 tracks. Guests on the album include Andy Cooper, Izo FitzRoy, Skunkadelic, ASM, Uncle Frank and Dr Syntax.

Review: Fresh from delivering a tidy two-track missive on Rare Wiri, Tonbe returns to his spiritual home, Disco Fruit, with a suitably epic collection of fresh re-edits and reworks. It's a typically rock solid selection of tried-and-tested revisions, with the Serbian producer offering up a mixture of head-nodding, toe-tapping slo-mo grooves (see the slowly strutting disco-funk of "It's My Time" and "That Sample", not to mention the low-slung dub disco of "The Sun Goes Down" and Moog-laden shuffle of closing cut "Take Off Everything") and sweatier peak-time workouts. The latter are naturally in the majority, with highlights including the early Daft Punk style madness of "Brooka Bass", the rich electrofunk-goes-disco house flex of "Life Goes On" and the hot-stepping, jazz-powered goodness of "Something Brewing".

Review: Given the infamous depth of Nick The Record's vinyl collection, you'd expect this contribution to Z Records' excellent Under The Influence series to be packed to the rafters with unheralded gems. Predictably, it is, delivering 22 cuts that should be thrillingly new to all but the most dusty-fingered collectors. Picking out highlights from such an excellent and in-depth collection is tough, but try the steel drums-laden celebration of Boogsie's "Can't You See Me", the synth-laden jazz-funk badness of "Keep Your Shoes" by MC and His Great Googa-Moogas, and the fizzing, melody-rich 808 electro of Ronnie Jones "Video Games". If that's not enough there's also a swathe of DJ-friendly re-edits from Nick himself.

Review: Belgian future funk and soul producer Krewcial joins forces with the ever ready sounds of Swedish label Gamm for a four track disco bonanza. This release is as classic as it can get as we start with 'Lose My Mind' which has been designed to kick off the party with it's funky riffs and grooves. The elegant jazzy solos of 'Cindy' are up next, followed by the expansive sound design of 'Dancing', another fantastic piece of work equipped with soulful vocals and crunchy drum patterns. We round the EP off with the slow dance that comes with 'When He Comes'. The classy string harmonies and crunchy bass riffs on this one proceed to bring the project to a satisfying close.

Review: At first glance, the pairing of Forest Hill resident Andrew Ashong and Sound Signature boss Theo Parrish would seem strange. But the duo have worked together previously with the Ghanaian born vocalist (and supposed owner of a vinyl collection that would make most record shops look like a car boot sale) lending his soulful tones to Parrish's excellent nine minute plus translation of the Hot Chip and Spiritualised affiliated About Group. Whereas that collaboration was more about Ashong's voice being just one element of a production that was undoubtedly Parrish, the three tracks present on the Flowers EP look to showcase what a talent the Londoner is. Those trademark dust filled stacatto rhythms are present in the opening title track, but they never swamp Ashong's killer vocal delivery, while "Take It Slow" is bonafide D funk of the highest order. After the brutal, divisive nature of Theo's kung fu experimentalism on the Any Other Styles EP, these three tracks show him in a wholly new light and hopefully Parrish and Ashong will be making much more music together.

Big Bad Woman - (3:09) 81 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.90
Review: Bristolian duo The Allergies have long made a speciality of taking hip hop back to its funk roots, and 'When The Heat Comes Down' is no exception, with the pair's fast-flowing rap vocal underpinned by a full-phat bassline, soaring brass and some fine wukka-wukking guitar. 'Big Bad Woman' is a different kettle of fish, having something of a mod jazz vibe to its shuffling drums, boogie-woogie piano and wigged-out 60s organ flurries, all of which are topped by a full-lunged but uncredited female vocal announcing "I'm a big bad woman and I'll eat you alive". Crazy, daddio!

Review: Some proper phat-ass 21st Century funk from The Broker & Funk Reverse here. 'Funk Down' throws everything into the pot from rave sirens to Rodgers-esque guitar chops and Hammond organs, while nodding to glitch-hop in the chopping and stuttering of the beats. 'Funk Up' is an unashamed ghetto-funk party starter: it's big and bouncy, with plenty of squelch in the bassline department, and to be fair that's all that's really required of it. Finally, 'Funky Town' is a slightly pacier, more electronic-sounding affair than the other two, and so may be more easily programmable in a wider range of sets.

Review: Neck a handful of anti-Malaria pills and head for the rainforest: TJ Edit is treating us to some "Tropical Funk". The long-serving Sound Exhibitions regular is in fine form throughout, from the mazy, horn-heavy Brazilian disco-funk chug of inspired opener "Tropical Funk", to the delay-laden dancefloor bliss of "Deeofunk", where woozy chords, echoing Clavinet lines and ricocheting vocal samples rise above a chunky, house-friendly mid-tempo groove. Sandwiched in between you'll find "My House", a throbbing, beefed-up deep house number smothered in rolling hand percussion, lazy trumpet and sax solos and sugary-sweet piano flourishes. Tasty stuff, all told.

Review: The sound of Afro-funk is alive and well, as this four-track EP from DJ Moy ably and amply demonstrates! 'L'Afrikano' opens proceedings, a heady cocktail of Afro, funk, Balearic and house influences. 'Superfunk' is more in classic 70s funk mode and could have been lifted straight from a blaxploitation soundtrack with its fat, squelchy bass, vocal shouts and twittering flutes, 'Afrojazz' does such a good job of describing itself in a single word that's there's probably no need to say much more except "listen to it, cos it's great!" and finally there's 'The Dance Floor', a deep percussion and woodwind groove for the dancers.

Here Boraman celebrates the best of contemporary underground soul, pairing familiar fare from the likes of Speedometer, the Haggis Horns and the Killer Meters with a skipload of slept-on fare. There's a great mix of instrumental blasters and breezy vocal cuts (see Nick Van Gelder's slick "Something's Got To Give" and Jo Stance's wonderful "Hey Girl"), with a few deliriously uptempo workouts (Renegaes of Jazz, The Mighty Showstoppers) thrown in for good measure.

From start to finish we are treated to delicious lashings of soulful samples and funky feeling, especially on tracks such as the latin inspired 'Easy Summertime' and the super groovy 'Lowdown Funk'. Other highlights definitely include the sunny sounds of 'Supernatural Babe' and of course 'Dynamite Funk' which fuses punchy drum selections with soulful choruses and funkadelic riffs.

Review: Banana Hill is a London-based party helmed by Cervo, and it's built a sterling reputation for embracing all manner of global grooves. Now the party is spreading its wings by starting a record label that kicks off in fine style with the sound of multi-instrumentalist Majid Bakkas, a Moroccan musician with many strings to his bow. Both tracks on this EP have been given a delicate shove in the direction of the dancefloor thanks to Cervo, who pitches his kicks and claps just right to make for utterly natural sounding party fodder of the highest order.

Review: Not one but five funky slices from fresh talents make up this new EP from Italian label Pizza Tunait. Jong Long's 'This Road' is a deep funk jam consisting primarily of live drums, warbling Hammond chords and a scratchy, sampled female vocal. There's more Hammond action on Girolamo Erilancho's 'Maybe', augmented by sonorous bass and reverb'd geetar, Francois Du Starper's melancholy, jazz-tinged 'Vignola 84' has a cinematic, soundtrack-y kinda feel, Gavin Saccoda's 'Come On' takes us into uplifting, brassy territory and finally Franco De Morano's 'Biancaneve' has airy flutes, raw slap bass and yes, more of those ker-razy Hammonds.

Best of the bunch is the weaving of Busta Rhymes' vocals over the JBs water-tight funk on "Ass On Fire".

Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Bristol's Scott Hendy aka Boca 45 steps forward on the Bomb Strikes imprint with a fantastic new compilation composed of 29 previous classics, unreleased dynamite sticks and a selection of exclusive new music. What a way to summarize the Boca 45 sound, as the release, specifically crafted by the man himself rolls effortlessly through 20 years of funk, breakbeat, hip hop and whatever else fits the situation! The two new records are entitled 'Hand Of God' and 'The Bear Pit' which pays homage to the infamous Bristol underground location. Overall, this is a fantastic collection and a must purchase for any Boca 45 fan!
