Mystic Love - (5:53) 121 BPM
Sunset Disco - (6:24) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: For their latest trip into fireside-warm disco-house territory, Diggin' Deeper has turned to the twin talents of Jay Airiness and Perlair. The duo kicks things off with "Mystic Love", an expertly chopped, looped, tweaked and dubbed-out re-make of a deliciously tactile and loved-up jazz-funk classic from the disco era. While the track getting the treatment is almost untouchable (seriously, it's a stone cold classic), they've done a terrific job in delivering a re-edit that takes it in a totally different direction. "Sunset Disco" is, if anything, even sunnier and breezier, with the production partnership working some sparkling loops hard before unleashing a samba disco inspired crescendo. Nicely done, lads.

Phat Pad - (5:18) 109 BPM
Basse Publique - (5:30) 100 BPM
Played by: KS French, MR Given Raw
Review: Over the last few years, Jay Airiness has proved to be one of the re-edit scene's most prolific producers, releasing tasty morsels on such labels as FKR, Rebel Hearts, Editorial, Binary Flights and Seventh Planet. Deep World sees him return to the Diggin' Deeper label - scene of many of his greatest triumphs - with a trio of sensual, sun-kissed cuts. He begins with the woozy, ultra-deep nu-disco/house/blue-eyed soul hybrid "Deep World", before looking to Larry Levan for inspiration on the metronomic, dubbed-out boogie-house shuffle of "Phat Pad". Finally, he hops into Doc Brown's Delorean to travel back to the mid '80s on "Basse Publique", a sparkling revision of what sounds like an early Jam & Lewis production.

Feeling - (5:46) 122 BPM
Review: Following his disco exploits around a galaxy of re-edit labels, new disco man Jay Airiness continues to root down with Diggin Deeper. His latest release for the label, Feeling EP, sees him breathe new life into three old boogie bangers. 'Here Is The Funk", a sizzlingly funky clavinet attack, leads the charge with back up from the six minute flute n' guitar riff-ola of "Spirit Of The 70s" and rolling sequined closer "Feeling". The party goes on!

Played by: KS French, MR Given Raw
Review: Since first appearing on our radar in 2014, Jay Airiness has gone on to deliver solid releases on Rebel Hearts, FKR, Binary Flights and Diggin Deeper. Here he returns to the latter with a three-track selection of Boogiedits. He begins with the loopy-but-baggy warmth of "Hello", where a backwards breakdown ushers in some head-in-the-clouds vocal harmonies and killer piano work. On the slightly faster "Up & Down" he does a good job turning a rubbery boogie gem into a sweet disco-house roller, while "Away Boogie" sees him successfully pay tribute to mid-'80s synth-soul, p-funk and electrofunk in his own distinctive manner.

Sun Fun Shine - (4:57) 122 BPM
I Like To Party - (5:40) 124 BPM
Review: Nantes-based disco-house fusionist Jay Airiness has impressed in recent times, with his Boogie Nite EP on Rebel Heart offering just the right blend of original house chops and classic disco/boogie samples. For this outing on Diggin' Deeper, he's in straight-up disco edits mode, offering up loopy house interpretations of some classic material. "I Can't Wait Saturday" sees him successfully chop-up Oliver Cheetham's anthem-like "Get Down Saturday Night", adding a little grunt via well-chosen loops and smooth house drums. On "Sun Sun Shine" he does the same to Central Line synth-boogie summer anthem "Walking Into Sunshine", giving it a relentless loop-house flavour. As for "I Like To Party", it's an extra-heavy, housed-up take on a synth-heavy '80s soul classic.

LA Nuit (Disco mix) - (5:29) 111 BPM
Stereo In Party - (4:57) 107 BPM
Review: Having recently taken time out to co-produce a big Venice Beach single for Nang, French disco digger DJ Moar returns to the re-edit game with four more desirable reworks. His edits are often characterized by a distinctive house shuffle and liberal use of filters. While that's partially the case here - "La Nuit (Disco Mix)" has a classic US deep house feel, despite the live disco keys and vocals, and "Stereo In Party" sounds like a Soundstream cut-up of Fred Wesley's "House Party", with a little more swing - there's also a pleasing looseness to proceedings. This is particularly evident on the undulating disco-funk flex of "Somebody Funky" and the yearning, Rhodes-laden midtempo goodness of "4 Love", arguably the EP's stand out moment.

Review: Back in 2012, house-inclined disco editor DJ Moar decided to return to his hip-hop roots, joining forces with fellow long-serving Parisian crate digger Lord Funk to pay tribute to the legendary Ultimate Breaks & Beats series of battle records. Ultimate Disco Breaks - first released on wax and now finally available digitally - was created with hip-hop influenced funk freaks and disco deviants in mind, delivering a range of dancefloor-friendly fixes that emphasize groove, rhythm and energy over production trickery and stretched-out scalpel works. For the most part, that means familiar disco and disco-funk staples being chopped and lopped for maximum excitement, with no extraneous middle eights, needless verses and noodling solos. In other words, it's all killer, no filler.

Review: For his latest release, Lord Funk shifts his amorous intentions from his hometown Paris towards the slightly less glamourous London. Judging by the soft focus affection all over these retro funk tracks he's definitely smitten with the capital, but the sound is firmly rooted in early '80s America. Highlights include the stark electro-disco of "It Turn Me On", the shimmering silk sheet digi-funk workout "Piccadilly Circus" and The Odyssey-esque dry-ice grind of "London Town".

Top Jeebin' - (2:49) 96 BPM
Review: In order to keep the funk wolf from the door, veteran Parisian re-edit DJ Moar returns with a quick stop-gap one-off "Top Jeebin'". Steering further away from the housier stuff he's released of late, this track reignites his love affair with hip-hop, being a killer mash-up of Audio Two's "Top Billin" and a classic James Brown instrumental.

Highlights include the Eurodisco stomper "All Nite", the prowling-tiger-of-love low-slung funk of "Tuerie C" and "I Really Want U: a retweak of Diana Ross' supremely funky cover of Marvin Gaye's I Want You.

Afro Discoder - (4:00) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Paris-based crate digger DJ Moar is no newcomer to the re-edit game; he released his first illicit reworks and bootlegs in the mid-2000s, and in the last few years has successfully divided his time between solo jaunts and work as one half of disco/house fusion duo Venice Beach. This soul EP of soul and funk flavoured reworks is arguably his best for some time. Each of the four tracks is deliciously playable, from the horn-heavy disco-funk of loose-limbed opener "High Groove" (arguably the highlight of a strong collection), to the vocoder-laced Afro-disco loop-grooves of "Afro Disorder". There's a slower, deeper gem, too, in the shape of the intoxicating, sun-kissed "Funky Cat".

Review: After a couple of outings on the French Kiss imprint, Parisian scalpel fiend Mastercue pops up on Diggin' Deeper with a quartet of floor-friendly disco reworks in his trademark house-tinged style. There's a surprising urgency about "Dance With Me", a heavy, pitched-up rework of a Peter Brown classic that makes great use of the original's fantastic bassline and guitar line. There's more looped-up disco-house pleasure to be found on the similarly groovy "Get On Up", while "Talked To You" uses filters and delay to great effect while stretching out a soulful, synth bass-propelled groove. Arguably best of all, though, are the razor-sharp strings and head-nodding bottom end of loose disco-soul rework "Make Me Hot".

Certainly not Parisian producer Lord Funk, that's for sure: the Retouch EP is a sleek exploration of the hazy sound from a boombox on a New York street corner somewhere around 1982. It's a four-track smorgasbord of slap-bass, icy synths, Linn drums, slo-jam vibes and soulful vocals. Rick James would be proud.

Review: Parisian DJ Moar seems to be enjoying his recent solo forays so much that it's amazing that he still finds time to release stuff with his band Venice Beach too (but somehow he does). Here he presents four more sweaty, slap-bassy, late night pelvis grinders, the most of obvious of which "Disco Jazzers Delight" takes the overly familiar ("Rappers' Delight") and rearranges it into something completely fresh and new. Elsewhere the source material is less obvious but equally as good and funky with the clean, tight and linear '80s soul grooves of the title track, "Funky Execution" being a real highlight.

For Diggin Deeper, KS French has gone 'fonkier', delivering four sumptuously plump disco nuggets: the loopy backbeat 'n' keys driven "The Groove", the Chic-getting-lasered diva soul of "Dancin' With My Love", the celebratory clap-a-long "True Funk Affair" and finally, the tight 'n' sassy funk of "They Say Nothin".

Review: If you like your disco loopy, with a healthy dollop of heavily compressed house bottom-end, you should check out the re-edits of Bremen-based producer KS French. His successful formula - combining the '90s "French touch" sound (think well known and obscure-ish disco loops with plenty of filter tweakery) with longer sections of the original material - guarantees party-starting material each and every time. Here, he drops more tried-and-tested reworks, from the singalong release of "Good Vibration" (a re-cut of Salsoul classic "Love Sensation"), to the head-nodding slo-mo bounce of "Trippin Dub" and string-laden electrofunk chug of "Loop You Body".

Review: Venice Beach member DJ Moar knows a thing or two about crafting sturdy, floor-friendly reworks of disco, funk and soul classics, as anyone who's picked up his previous edit-minded digital-only singles will confirm. Here, he's at it again, dropping another trio of tried-and-tested instrumental groovers. "Dream Lovers" and "Come On Baby" both chop up loops from familiar disco classics, beefing up the bottom end and adding new house-centric beats for guaranteed peaktime pleasure. It's the latter that ticks the most boxes, if only for its righteous slap bassline and oh-so-familiar guitar melodies. "Together", meanwhile, is an altogether sweeter and groovier excursion, focusing the action around delicious jazz guitar licks and wide-eyed chords.

Review: Greece-born, Paris-raised, Bremen-based DJ/producer KS French has previously impressed with his tasty reworks of classic disco and electrofunk jams. Here he delivers four more tried-and-tested edits for Diggin' Deeper. These range from the familiar (a loopy, filter-heavy take on "You Used To Hold Me So Tight", which sounds like the sort of thing House of Disco would release), to the little known (the similarly filter-heavy '80s soul bump of "Lovers"). Here, though, he's at his best when hitting the more straight up disco flavours hard, as the bass-heavy disco-funk bump of "Make Your Body Groove" and hands-in-the-air anthem "Wear It Out" more than prove.

Review: If you're going to have a garden it might as well be a disco one, even if it's just so you could answer the question 'how does your garden grow?' with 'pretty disco actually' (should anyone ever actually ask such a thing). The grass in P Sol's garden is certainly disco and the low slung, punk-funky grooves of the title track prove it. Elsewhere we get more sleek, linear and looped edits including the throbbing disco house of "Fool's Paradise" and a mellow take on George Benson's "Turn Your Love Around".

Review: Normally home to DJ Moar exclusively, Diggin' Deeper has now opened its doors to the mysterious KS French. It seems access to the DD club has two basic requirements: the first is to have double initials, and the second is to have a seriously funky knack for re-edits. This guy wins on both scores with four slices of prime vintage funk cuts, nipped, tucked and given a bit of extra thump for maximum party potential.

Review: Still enjoying his solo vacation from his Parisian nu-disco band Venice Beach, DJ Moar is back with another fine EP on Digging Deeper. The clue is in the label name, certainly where the title track's concerned anyway. "Girlz" is a sublime slice of slinky and seductive deep disco house - all '80s funk bass, lazy beats and looped atmospherics. Elsewhere "She's The One" and "Thanks" explore more straight up retro funk vibes; the former evoking memories of Shakatak and the latter possibly sampling a certain Marvin Gaye.

Review: Parisian party starter Moar has spent the last couple of years concentrating on his work as part of nu-disco/house/disco fusionists Venice Beach, yet his career stretches way back to the '90s. Here he presents his first solo single for a couple of years, an expertly teased and tweaked chunk of heavy funk given a loopy house makeover. "Funk Recycle" is expertly executed, Moar building the pressure thanks to a tasty combination of sturdy funk drums, house loops, occasional filters and just the right amount of yelps, guitars, horns and bass from the source material. As you'd perhaps expect, it has all the makings of a sweltering summer party smash.

We've got three productions here and they all hark back to his earlier days as a hip-hop DJ: "The Show" is all funky, retro bloc-rocking' breaks, "La Nuit" is a features lithe, sensual bass work and "Kingston Discoteque" ends things on perky slap 'n' clap funk terms.
