I Want Some More - (6:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Having spent months locked away in his Bologna bolthole, veteran Italian producer LTJ (Luca Trevisi) has returned to the daylight with a new batch of fresh edits for the listening public. The sound here is, of course, his beloved psyche-rock/cosmic disco fusion - the sound with which he originally made his name back in the '80s. It's a deep, trippy and rewarding listen particularly on the slinky, percussion-heavy throbber "Plug Me" and the tight and tough disco-funker "I Want Some More".

Funk Is OnEXCLUSIVE
   
Funk Is On - (9:06) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Slow and steady wins the race, right? It should also win over that dancefloor of yours when it's as expertly crafted as this. As with all previous LTJ releases, "Funk Is On" is all about the groove and, indeed, the development thereof. New elements such as extra synth textures, vocal snippets and percussive tools introduce themselves slowly and politely as the track builds and builds with a sense of cool understated drama. Weighing in at a cool nine minutes, and not a dull moment, this is LTJ at his finest. But then what did you expect from Hot Groovy?

Ain't Nothing But A Groove - (9:56) 105 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Not to be confused with any liquid drum & bass producer, LTJ is a true fiend of low slung deep house and this plain and simple track preaches his gospel with effortless aplomb. The title gives it away, but this is a track that works around an austere funk hook and rides it out for ten minutes of cool jamming. The bass rumbles laconically, the vocals drift in and out through filters and the guitar licks trip over each other in a delicious discoid fashion. It's a simple trick superbly executed for the warm-up slot.

Don't Let The System Get You Down - (7:34) 109 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: More edity goodness as Luca Trevisi digs deep with two new discerning grooves. "Dreaming" is laid back sludger of Mark-E or Quiet Village style proportions. Leaning heavily on a small sampled hook and diced vocals, it's the ultimate warmer-upper or sunset soundtrack. For more groove welly and rhythmic chugginess head for "Don't Let The System Get You Down" and instantly get lost in the groove.

All Ya Got - (6:15) 107 BPM
   
I'll Never Change Up On You - (6:47) 95 BPM
Review: Italian producer LTJ is something of a master when it comes to producing groovy, head-nodding edits. Here, he brings his trademark style - undeniably floor-friendly and house-centric, but also suitably reverential to his the little-known source material - to Hot Groovy for a three-track burst of sumptuous reworks. The slo-mo jam "I'll Never Change Up on You" - all touchy-feely grooves, saccharine vocals and tactile melodies - is effortlessly soulful, while the winding sax and fluid Rhodes of the more bumping "All Ya Got" are strangely addictive. Its house pulse should guarantee peaktime pleasure. Best of all, though, is the low-slung, righteous funk bounce of "Black Machine", an exercise in wringing maximum pleasure from the most crucial of grooves.

Giving BackEXCLUSIVE
   
Giving Back - (7:55) 108 BPM
Review: Deep house hero LTJ is back with an exclusive one-tracker and his one man disco! Well, the body of "Giving Back" of course follows his expected thumping, deep groove formula, but he's added quite a few extra spices into the recipe here. Sounding much like the kind of rolling mid-tempo fare that the likes of Leftfield were often known for, this eight minute epic also features a sample of a twangy disco bassline, spacey whooshes and exotic percussion.

Walking GrooveEXCLUSIVE
   
Walking Groove - (9:42) 110 BPM
Review: Italy may not be the first place that springs to mind when someone mentions far-out psychedelic rock, but Bologna's LTJ Experience is all about surprises. Here, on "Walking Groove" he delivers almost ten minutes of a slow-building psyche-funk jam which develops from a rolling cowbell-led pulse to a fully (consciously) expanded duel between wah-wah guitar and organ. What's the Italian for 'groovy'?

Feel InsideEXCLUSIVE
   
Feel Inside - (7:12) 107 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Luca "LTJ" Trevisi has long been one of the disco edit scene's unsung heroes, delivering formidably atmospheric, rolling rubs for Super Value, No More Hits and others. "Feel Inside" is another quality rework in his inimitable style, building from a chugging, atmospheric start - think loved-up, mid-tempo deep house, but with jazz-funk loops - into a lovingly huggable, guitar-flecked disco gem. As with much of his other work, the track rolls along impressively, with subtle changes to the bassline, beats and sampled vocals keeping things moving impressively. Speaking of the vocal, it's deliciously warm and fuzzy, featuring the kind of saucer-eyed, love-for-all message that makes you want to kiss perfect strangers.

To The Disco - (8:11) 118 BPM
Review: LTJ's Hot Groovy label contuniously serves up hot plates of drum tracks that
make the sonic cuisine of other contempory disco labels look like sloppy fast food gruel. This release sees LTJ delivers an ultra sultry "Get Your Groove", a track that should only be danced to when the temperature is hot and the ceiling is teeming with sweet. Alternative cut "To The Disco" also focuses on basslines and drums with a slapping string stab that vamps as hard as Bootsy Collins on heat. Get down.

What I FeelEXCLUSIVE
   
What I Feel - (6:52) 94 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: LTJ X-Perience is an Italian slow-disco re-edit guy, Luca Trevisi, who has an impressive string of releases under his belt. Following his recent artist album I Don't Want This Groove To Ever End, he now delivers this non-album track. As you might expect "What I Feel" is a mega-slow (94bpm!), lolloping funk workout, laden with an incessant guitar riff, bass loop, cosmic swishes and stoner trumpets that would make Herb Alpert proud. One listen and you'll feel like you're flying, in slow motion of course, through fluffy clouds with a cocktail in your hand.

Get DownEXCLUSIVE
   
Get Down - (7:18) 100 BPM
Review: LTJ (he of "Experience" fame) returns with another single-track missive for his own Hot Groovy imprint. As usual, his main concern is slo-mo funk, and "Get Down" has it in spades. Sat somewhere between the smooth bump of Revenge-ish slow-house, the shuffle of head-nodding disco edits and the dirty groove of vintage funk, "Get Down" seems to inhabit a space all of its own. With the action focused on some down-low grooves and an urgent vocal loop, it has all the energy of a peaktime stormer, despite clocking in at a little over 100 BPM. In short: it's a bit of a belter.

Go Down - (3:49) 83 BPM
Review: It's nearly two years since Luca 'LTJ' Trevisi launched the Underrated Grooves series. Given the extended break, it's perhaps unsurprising that this belated follow-up boasts an expanded track list. There's little to fault throughout the six tracks, as Trevisi serves up tactile, evocative edits and extensions of suitably obscure (un-credited) material. Highlights include the snaking saxophone, jazzy guitars and lazy grooves of sensual opener "Way Down", the country soul-goes-house shuffle of "Trigger Finger", and the acid-flecked throb of Baldelli style cosmic rock chugger "One Night in Bologna". Best of all, though, is closer "Go Down", which is little less than pitched-down Balearic gold.

Space Phonik - (7:13) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Double Dancing - (7:07) 102 BPM
Review: Re-edit/nu-disco/that kind of thing producer Luca Trevisi (aka LTJ) normally reserves all the releases on Hot and Groovy to himself. This time however he's enlisted the help of Ivory Boy to create two new slices of woozy disco-funk - "Space Phonik" is slow and cosmic with a cool plod and elastic band bass to take you to another dimension, while "Double Dancing" loops a tight funk guitar lick and vocal snippet and wraps it around a jazzy disco-house backing for maximum penthouse grind potential. Chic sounds.
