Black Amex - "You've Been Replaced" - (6:40) 108 BPM
Funk Hunk - "Wake Up" - (3:04) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Played by: Richard Rossa
Review: It's a real battle here for the winner of the 'slickest name award' with re-edit act Black Amex giving it a commendable shot. However, it's gotta be the Funk Hunk who bags the prize for sheer daftness alone. The music's the real winner though, a draw to be precise, with the tough-love electro boogie of "You've Been Replaced" perfectly complementing the quirky funk of "Wake Up". A win-win situation.

It's Friday Night (Funk Hunk re-edit) - (6:08) 120 BPM
Review: Despite the name Funk Hunk is displaying some pretty foxy legs on the sleeve of "Feelin Hot". In fact he's rustled up some seriously sassy sounds here too. Three servings of prime late-70s and early-80s boogie is the order of the day, starting with the Rick James-esque title track, which tightens up the original ever so slightly by adding a few sharper edits and loops. Next "Don't' Stop Believin'" is smooth as a gnat's chuff disco-soul of the highest order and finally "It's Friday Night" wraps things up perfectly with the Junior-style sharp UK funk vibes. Slick!

Your Love Is Heaven And Hell (Funk Hunk Re-edit) - (6:29) 108 BPM
Played by: Ziggy Phunk
Review: Re-edit specialists Handshakes are back with more surefire disco arsenal. This time presenting Denver's Funk Hunk (again!) another one to watch on the disco re-edit front of late. He lends his midas touch to Grace Jones' 1979 classic "On Your Knees" giving it a good and proper thumping revision for modern dancefloors. There is also another familiar classic that needs no introduction that's given an ergonomic re-rub on "Your Love Is Heaven And Hell (Funk Hunk Re-edit)". Lovers of Late Nite Tuff Guy or Gay Marvine should definitely take notice of this guy.

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.

D-Train - "Walk On By" (Funk Hunk Re edit) - (4:49) 116 BPM
Review: Denver's Funk Hunk may not be the hardest-working man in the re-edit scene, though he's certainly amongst the most productive. Happily, it seems that regardless of the frequency of his releases, the producer's famed high quality threshold remains intact. Certainly, this latest EP contains some real dancefloor bombs. Particularly impressive is his affectionately stuttering, heavily chopped-up tweak of T-Connection disco-funk shuffler "Time is Short", which revolves around the manipulation of a wealth of short, sweet samples. Elsewhere, Raydio's decidedly Balearic, sun-kissed boogie-funk jam "Until The Morning Comes" gets transformed into a rolling chunk of midtempo disco-house, while D-Train's sweet cover of all-time classic "Walk On By" is given a strings-and-synth heavy makeover that wisely emphasizes Hubert Eaves III's original instrumentation.

FELIPE AVELAR & DaFunkeeTomato - "Falling In Love" - (6:11) 124 BPM
Review: For their latest foray into party-starting re-edit territory, Handshakes has turned to label stalwart fiend Funk Hunk (he's so dreamy) and Ammo Recordings regular Felipe Avalar. The hunky one steps up first, first doffing a cap to stab-heavy late '90s disco-house and the sparkling "Should Have Known Better", before surging even further towards peak-time territory via the sharp edits, bumping disco loops and Chic style guitar passages of "Wear It Out". As for Felipe Avelar, he serves up the beefed-up, arpeggio-heavy disco-funk of "Lovely" (seemingly a rework of a particularly cool and fresh, early '80s anthem), before joining forces with Dafunkeetomato to turn a Salsoul synth-disco classic into a bumping chunk of cheery house goodness.

Review: All re-edit labels have their own twist on things and Handshakes' thing is classic funk. After messing around with singles for a while, they've bitten the bullet and delivered a long player. It's been worth the wait too as there's a whopping 19 tracks to choose from featuring a mix of names both familiar and new. Highlights include the touchy-feely throb of "Groove On (IMFROMULL edit)", the grey leather slip on electro-funk of "You Wanna Get Up (Dr Packer Funkout)" and the raw, slap-bass heaven of Jam Master's "Party Lights".
