Review: This decidedly epic collection marks Katakana Edits's first foray into the compilation market and is designed as a "best-of" style outing. It boasts 30 reworks, mash-ups, remixes and re-edits gleamed from the prolific imprint's first 50 singles. Naturally, club-ready material comes thick and fast, with a multitude of genres - think swamp funk, disco, dub disco, electrofunk, Italo-disco, hip-hop, reggae and dancehall - and wide variety of tempos represented. Naturally, some of the reworks tend towards the well known, though there are also plenty of rubs of lesser-known gems for those who want to dig deeper than familiar peak-time anthems. Most importantly, the standard remains impressively high throughout.

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.

The Hustle Parisian - (8:58) 125 BPM
from $2.07
Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a hot and sticky, two-track collaboration between 10-piece Parisian disco-funk outfit Cotonete and disco-house survivor Dimitri From Paris. "Parribean Disco", a Latin-tinged take on Caribbean disco rich in expansive jazz piano solos (think "Strings of Life", and you're close), pressure-building grooves and rousing horn lines, is undoubtedly the star of the show, though the high octane and fiendishly heavy disco-funk slammer that follows, "The Hustle Parisian" - all "Spank" electric piano stabs, mazy synth solos and layered trumpet riffs - arguably boasts more dancefloor weight. Both are superb, though, and sound like peak-time anthems in waiting.

Review: The ever-ready Jalapeno supply us with another box of top draw jams as they release their 9th edition of 'Jalapeno Funk'. This project features six originals spanning the full length of electro-funk and new school jazz, showing off everything great about the label. Our highlights for this release include the fantastically retro sounds of Boca 45, with the smooth grooves and scratches of 'Soul On Top', the magnificent John Turrell with his soulful vocals on 'The Temper' and the cali-swag driven arrangement of 'Talkin About Dat' from the wonderful Basement Freaks. It certainly seems that Jalapeno continue to tick all the boxes with this great collection of new wave funk and soul.

Review: Crate-digging reissue specialists Africa Seven has decided to flip the script on this fantastic album, asking a range of contemporary producers to "re-imagine" a string of rare soul, funk, Afrobeat and disco jams. Thrillingly for those who remember the original West London broken beat scene, the comp contains some killer "bruk" revisions - not least Silkie's brilliantly fluid and groovy take on Ekambi Brillant's "Soul Castle" and EVM's rolling, Bugz in the Attic style revision of M'Bamina's "Mosi Zole". Elsewhere, Appleblim delivers a typically fuzzy and bass heavy rework of Sorry Bamba, Dj Food chops up Sookie's organ-laden funk slammer "Rhythm on Rhythm" an IDM heroes Plaid join the dots between vintage African jazz and woozy electronica. In a word: superb.

Review: Featurecast flexes hard into the crates right here: digging deep over 20 years of party breaks, he's put together the definitive journey of funk with the refreshing devil may care attitude we've come to expect. His selection excavations are here for all the benefit from... The Wiseguys's lesser-spotted jam "One For The Ladies", Lack Of Afro's horn-melting "The Outsider", Max Sedgley's sugar-sweet "Happy", Flevans' Afrofunk shake-up "12 Apostles" and Featurecast and Aldo Vanucci's 2008 hoe-down stomper "Blue Grassed Devil" are just some are just some of the floor-matured classics amid the 25 cuts on offer here. And that's before we even get to awesome mix. Don't dillydally on this one.

Review: Skeewif is one of the many breakbeat editors who knows his craft and, most importantly, knows how to get people moving and onto the floor. Back on the bustling Japaleno imprint, he drops the funkiness of "Mexican Flyer" all over fast-moving jazz drums, sampled and re-shaped to a 4/4 sort of stance - an excellent, party-rocking bombshell. "Delta", on the other hand, is all about the soulfulness, dropping organs, breaks and glam vocals over a tight drum groove - sounding a little choral and gospel-like. Oh, Lord!

Review: Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".

Review: It's been a good while since the mighty DJ Butcher served us up one of his meaty selections of disco off-cuts for our listening pleasure. DJ "S" begins by tackling the mighty 70s jam "Shaft" - adding a thumping great house kick to bring it up to date. Elsewhere we get filtered French-touch style grooves on Vaudafunk's "Somebody's Stole My Nuggets" and HP Vince's "Funky Disco Party" is all about the hedonistic loops. Finally we end with an extremely familiar funk riff, toughed up to devastating effect on S Nolla's "Do You Wanna".

Review: It seems that there is no end to the brilliance of the Jalapeno output with yet another classic now being released from Ephemerals. This original recording is smooth all over, with the relaxed vocal melodies layering themselves pleasingly over vibrantly orchestrated horn harmonies and drum grooves in an almost Chance The Rapper style of intentional looseness. This one comes complete with a bag of great remixes, including a trippy Asta Hiroki rework of the instrumental backing. Top stuff again from both the Ephemerals and Jalapeno brands!

Review: To date, each volume in Africa Seven's thrilling Africa Airways compilation series has been little less than essential. It goes without saying that this fourth instalment is also exceptionally good. Whereas previous volumes have focused on Afro-funk and "Afro-psych" (think Sly Stone, Nigerian style), this set drills down into African disco-funk released between 1976 and '83. Highlights come thick and fast throughout, from the solo-laden, slap bass-boasting bounce of Tala AM's "Get Up Tchamassi" and Charly Kingson's squelchy, synth-laden Blaxploitation number "Nimele Bolo", to the righteous, piano-driven thrills of Kemayo and K-System's brilliant "Biram" and the superior boogie business of Jake Sollo's "Tinini Yasana".

A decade in the music game is no mean feat, and listening through the 13 tracks selected here you can hear how it's the quality of the edits that's got them where they are now. Highlights include the hazy scratchy take on "It's A Family Affair", the peaks and troughs rearrangement of "Is It All Over My Face" and the dreamy Italo disco of "It's Alright". Here's to the next ten years!

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: Aroop delivers the third instalment of his "Brazil Breakdown" series with three of his floor-fired reworks to date. "Brilhantina" is a percussion-heavy slice of four-to-the-floor soul with synths straight out of the Detroit playbook. "Quem Vai Querer" ups the ante with a juicy bottom end (think mid 00's Yam Who), feel-good chants and a conga roll so hypnotic you'll be shaking your hips for hours. Finally we hit "O Mestre"; rich in warm reverbed synths and coated with a pristine-polished 80s soul vocal, this will work well on both sides of the night. Honey coated warm up or an emotional finale.

Review: We, The People is Pasteur Lappe's 1979 masterpiece, and what is surely an LP that has helped the afro-funky sound to grow and prosper throughout the years. Africa Seven have done us the favour of digitising such an iconic six-tracker, and it just makes so much sense given today's fascination with outer national sounds of all variations. This is pure funky from start to finish, such as in "More Sekele Movement (Papas NI Name)", about there is something cosmic, deeper, and more experimental behind its seductive hypnosis. It's also pure party music through and through, never going to deep as to leave the dancers running dry - it's quite simply an essential piece of music to have in your arsenal, and a very early African funk bomb to show off in the discussion threads...

Review: As we've learned in the past the Funk Hunk likes muscle, lots of disco muscle. His edits are never weak. So it's business as usual on Funkier Than That, his latest selection of edits. 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: Here we have a real meeting of minds with the esteemed re-edit label Gamm recruiting Glasgow's very own nu-disco veteran Al Kent to serve up some more of his fine work for our listening pleasure. There are just two cuts featured here, but who needs quantity when you can have quality, eh? "So Good" sees a sultry seductress heavily breathe her words over a smouldering Love Hangover-style twanging groove. "Victorious" meanwhile incorporates 70s disco rock, over-excited clavinets and bongos galore. Heavy-duty boogie vibes!

Review: Breakbeat Paradise is very good at satisfying our funky needs, never failing to come through with some blissful, sample-heavy party bangers for all walks of life. It's a mixed bag, as per usual, and this will surely appeal to DJs with wider sound palettes, from the hip-hop heads to the disco junkies. Coming across almost like edits, the sounds of peeps like B Side and DJ Maars manage to incorporate so many elements of dance music into single arrangements, and these tunes are surely what is needed to get the dancefloor going; whether it's your bag or not, you won't be able to resist their funky touch.

Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

Review: Greece's Timewarp imprint is a wild and all-embracing label, preferring to focus on GOOD music rather than specific sub-genres with a propensity to die out and become all too sterile. This is true of the genres they deal with, of the reissues they decide to pursue, but also of the artists they decide to recruit. Newcomer Jazzprofilactika is given his debut with this mighty nine-tracker spanning all things 'jazzy'. Much like the sounds heard on labels like BBE or Brownswood, this artist has nailed the formula when it comes to merging influences and chopping up suave samples. The majority of the music here is organic, which is heard through its improvisational nature, but it will undoubtedly appeal to fans of everyone from Floating Points to Moodymann. Subtly pushed forth by low levels of house grooving, this is the perfect material for the early sets, or for the house parties. A mighty touch from a mightily attractive new artist!

Review: In honour of the 15th birthday of his acclaimed weekly radio show, Beats In Space, Tim Sweeney has decided to have a bit of a mix-up. This isn't any-old mix-up, though. While the second disc of this excellent collection focuses on Beats In Space classics - gathering together familiar favourites from Justin Van Der Volgen, Rocha, Tensnaske and Naum Gabo, amongst others - it's the first disc that shines. It features a thrillingly eclectic and party-friendly mix almost entirely made up of previously unreleased material. Given Sweeney's credentials, it's perhaps no surprise to find some real gems here, including some boogie revivalism from Azari & III, a guttural rework of Edwin Starr by Eric Duncan, and the wide-eyed rave revivalism of Junior Fairplay.

Review: The series is the result of house legend Joey Negro's admiration for all the semi anonymous vinyl junkies that he has encountered on his own vinyl quests. Following the success of the Red Greg-compiled first instalment, we now have veteran radio broadcaster and soul aficionado Paul Phillips delivering his selection of long-lost classics. It's a veritable feast of rare disco releases (25 in all!), highlights of which include the glossy Philly sounds of State Department's "Slow Love", the Chic-isms of Pike's "Good Feelings", the digital electro-funk of Midnight Energy's "Saving Of My Love" and the sublime synth-soul of Ron Richardson's "Ooh Wee Babe".

from $2.07
Review: Four party-shaped edits from the always-reliable Gamm label, this time by DJ Will Rock who tweaks the smoky soul of Moses Dillard's "Got To Find A Way" into a canny nu-funk block-rocker and blends Ripple's classic b-boy anthem "A Funky Song" with a late-period Pete Rock beat on "Sure Is Funky". Best of the bunch is the weaving of Busta Rhymes' vocals over the JBs water-tight funk on "Ass On Fire".

Review: Not much is know about JM edits, but considering this EP is released on the well established Gamm, it's fair to say this was always be something from the classier end of the re-edit spectrum. Here we get four slick and smooth re-teaks of quality soulful house ("Africa"), soul ("I Love You") Afro beat ("Flea") and dobby, bluesy funk ("Who Is He"). Top class!

Review: Aroop Roy - London based soul boy 'of many dimensions' - has been pretty silent for nearly a year. Perhaps he just went on holiday in some exotic far-flung dimension, but he's back now, all guns blazing. Brazil Breakdown Part 2 features three spicy cuts of feverish retro Latin funk, all boasting irresistible beach party grooves and seductively catchy vocals.

Review: Funk fantastic Dave Gerrard is back where he belongs - with Chopshop, the re-edit label run by the one and only DJ Butcher. Rip More Funk is all about the fun and contains four reworks of fairly familiar party funk favourites with the likes of James Brown appearing on "Like A Funk Mashine" alongside the more obscure disco chant-a-long "Do It (I like To) and the elastic boogie of "Keep Your Body Workin'".

Review: Ok folks, it's a new Bomb Strikes release, you should all know the drill by now. Yep, it's all about party friendly breaks and mash-ups here, so leave your arty pretensions at the door, thank you very much. Here we have two self-professed 'funkmasters', Prosper and the suggestively titled Stabfinger hooking up for three sizzling jams. The title track mixes brassy big beat and daisy age rap, whilst "Don't Hold Back" is pure hands-in-the-air poppy electro funk before "Baby Baby Please" wraps it all up nicely with an infectious fusion of electro-swing, rap and cumbia beats.
