Review: For their latest statement of intent, Bristol's nu-funk troubadours The Allergies have found a new home at Goodgroove. They've consummated the relationship in fine style too, going a whopping four times in the process. "Special People" is a roaring breaky funker that could easily be mid-70s O'Jays. Elsewhere we get daisy age hip hop jam "React", vintage Stax-style stomper "As We Do Our Thing" and guitar-led rap "Feel Alright". We're glad they're back!

Review: Newcomer Bondi Stereo lands on Goodgroove for the label's third visceral installment of breakbeats and mutant basslines - we've been waiting for this! Six bouncy and veritably joyous sample flexes, Bondi Stereo merge hip-hop vocals together with popped-out chants and even Marvin Gaye's sultry voice. Check "Love To Funk" if you're ready to rock!

Review: Italian funk fiddler The Captain knows his way around a dusty old seven inch, and more importantly, how to one make into contemporary dancefloor dynamite. This long player is a compilation of some of his finest work, featuring eight cuts of serious party breaks. Highlights include the tough rolling swagger of Patti Drew's version of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle", the breaky, electro-swing of "Shake It", the intense clap-along of "Alright Bossa" and the smile inducing Freddie Mercury goes breaky hip-house joys of "Another One Dusty Bossa".

Review: Pater party starter Father Funk shows us who's the daddy with four more slinky, sample-soaked nu-funk jams. Ranging from the ballsy swing of "Jungle Strut" to the more salubrious, well-oiled slinks and winks of "Start Movin'", once again FF's EP lives up to its title in every way... Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

Review: Welcome to the mid-2000s. A few years before Jalapeno took him on and developed him into the nu-funk guru he is today, but after he'd scored international kudos by syncing to an Apple advert "Channel Surfing", Featurecast was one of the biggest bootleg barons on the scene. 21st century big-beat and turbo-hip-hop, Goodgroove released some of the cheekiest sample-heavy tunes of his early career. And here they are in all their remastered glory. Highlights include the Wild Cherry sampling bootie shaker "Funky White Brother" and the Vandross-DMX love-in "Get It On The Floor". If you weren't around the first time, now's your chance to catch up.

Review: Booty Fruit badman Funk Ferret steps up to man the Goodgroove machine with a low-end lurking five piece. "Don't Stop" is a classic turntablist joint, loaded with cool samples and a burpy bassline. "Keep It Real" is a wholesome disco flexer complete with some very polished slinky bass while "The Anthem" is an understated funk frenzy with slap bass, 8-bit trills and great use of samples. "Give It Up" is one for the bass-hungry as the low-end takes centre stage with all sorts of cool production touches and reverse twists, very much like a Featurecast joint. Finally we hit "Soul City", a horn-heaving strut-out layered with dense bass textures and loads of cool attention to detail on every twist. Genuinely fresh.

Review: Barry Ashworth dons his booty backpack for another selection of razor-sharp reversions. "Eek Boy" takes Eek-A-Mouse to the forefront of 170BPM science with a skank-packed shock-out while Odetta's "Hit Or Miss" gets both the funk and D&B treatments with insanely funky results. "Ranking Nation" smashes down the dancehall while Horace Andy's classic "Skylarking" enjoys two tempo-flexing interpretations. The term 'bombs' doesn't even begin to describe how on-point these bootlegs are. Serious party bizzle - they don't call him the General for nothing!

Review: Two bubbling D&B booties from Dub Pistol founder Barry Ashworth under his General Narco guise. We won't give too many secrets away, but the titles should give the remix identities away. For a peaktime rewind-heavy slapdown head for the bubbling "Oh Bumba Clott" and for a five minute montage of pure floor unity head for "Dreadlock Holiday". Both absolutely kill it, as always from the Pistols camp.

Review: Having recently proved his eclectic credentials with a full-length on major label offshoot Pedigree cuts, Brighton-based beatmaker Ewan Hoozami returns to his first love, namely party-hearty blends of breakbeat and ghetto funk for the effervescent Goodgroove imprint. There's much ammunition for funk-minded DJs throughout the eight tracks on display, from the bold pianos and Fatboy Slim-ish samples of "Can't Help It" and hustling straight-up funk of "High 'N' Mighty", to the parping horns and dense sc ratching of "B-Boy Sound" and sweet, summery, electro-swing inspired "You Are Soul". Hoozami also warms up his tonsils on "Ginger & Lime", which is also available in Dub form if you're not down with his cracked vocal delivery.

Review: Nuremberg's Jurgen Ludwig, aka Jayl Funk, knows his soul music inside and out and here he delivers four fresh new jams via Goodgroove. They're all pretty high quality scalpel jobs, as per usual. "SixxThree Aight" is all heavy breaks and tight licks, "Piece Of Mine" is some classy disco funk, "Supernatural Babe" is some excellent low down boogie and "Still Together" is a hands-in-the-air 70s soul gem.

Review: Sabrosa Soul is the brand new beat-child of Tom Drummond and Charlie Bucket. Oozing timeless funk from every element, each of these four tracks will thaw out the iciest of floors. Highlights include Cuban heel-clicking Latin jiver "Sabrosa Salsa" and the hypnotic slinked-out groove and slo-mo 4/4 of "Tromba". The type of music that will have you instantly reaching for a mojito - even at 10 in the morning - we're expecting plenty more exciting material from Sabrosa Soul.

Review: Having spent much of their nine-year existence blazing a trail for good-time party breaks and ghetto funk, the crew behind Goodgroove Records has decided to turn their attention to disco. The first Disco Series release comes from Glaswegian party-starters Shaka Loves You, whose punchy, horn-heavy take on nu-disco owes much to their funk breaks background. There's much fun to be had throughout, from the electric piano heavy, organic disco-house bump of opener "Make It Last", to the toe-tapping, 107 BPM disco-funk-meets-ragga goodness of closer "Shake". In between, they stroll further towards summery funk territory on "Turn It Loose", and layer snaking saxophone lines over a rolling groove on the tasty "If You Give".

Review: Just over a year ago, Glaswegian party-starters Shaka Loves You joined forces with festival-friendly funk breaks imprint Goodgroove to launch the Disco Series. This belated follow-up is as on-point as its predecessor and contains four-more chunks of fun-time, disco influenced workouts smothered in live instrumentation. We're particularly enjoying the hard-wired funk guitars, rising horns and insatiable vocals of "Dance, Dance, Dance", though throaty edit-not-edit "Ridin' High" - all hard-wired synth bass, shuffling house beats and P-funk flourishes - is also superb. The bouncy, dance-until-you-drop craziness of "In My Soul" (a largely instrumental edit of a well loved early '80s disco smasher) and jaunty opener "My Love" complete a fine package.

From the impossible-to-not-dance-on-the-nearest-tabletop Frantique rework "Sho Nuff" to the butt shakin' rolling funk of "Turn You On" via the 4/4 electro-disco romp "Get Down Town". Quality party joy.

Here he serves four guaranteed floor fillers starting with "Mild Mild West", a loose-limbed disco rendition of the Good The Bad and The Ugly theme, next "Too Good" sees Aretha Franklin get a house-shaped whoosh under her backside, "EveryMoney" meanwhile sees some vintage soul fused with classic Kelis and ODB and finally "Hold Tight" sees the show close with some sizzling neon-flecked arpeggiated disco..

Review: It's that devilish X-Ray Ted, back again on the unstoppable Goodgroove. At the moment, the Bristol crew seems to be holding it down for the UK, with the majority of new artists on our disco/funky charts coming from the West of the country. It's natural, it's in the city's DNA, and even these four new burners from X Ray Ted pack enough rave sensibility to please three to four different generations of British head-nodders. "Rollin'" and "My House" are simple tunes, but they do what they do with utter class - the finest of house rolling that we've come across. "Salsoul Lover" is, of course, a disco inspiration taken from the legendary label's outlandish back catalogue, and "Blue Skies" rocks to a slower, more broken boogie vibe that has everything from the bass to the synths, in the right places. Mighty fine!
