Smoke Miash (Santuri version - MCurtis remix) - (5:04) 98 BPM
Review: Greek producer Timewarp Inc demonstrates his remarkable versatility in the studio once more. Recent album 'Theory Of Evolution' focused primarily on reggae and dub sounds, but on this single-track release he takes an abrupt left turn into Latin-inspired territory. More specifically, the mid-paced 'Smoke Miash', with its fluttering Spanish guitars and mournful trumpets, has a distinct Mexican feel - it wouldn't sound out of place on an Ennio Morricone spaghetti western score, perhaps soundtracking the build-up to a hanging or funeral. It's not one for club play, but it certainly makes for hypnotic, head-nodding home listening.

Restart (Beat Ride instrumental remix) - (5:12) 96 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Here's a Juno Download exclusive that's well worth checking. It sees talented but relatively little-known producer Beat Ride rework "Restart", one of the highlights of Timewarp Inc's fourth studio album "Theory of Revolution". Whereas Timewarp Inc's original version (not included here) was a skanking slab of sunshine reggae-funk featuring the soulful vocals of Jammaroots, Beat Ride's radical revision re-invents the track as a stirring, string-laden chunk of emotive, atmospheric trip-hop rich in warm Rhodes keys, dubbed-out horn blasts and jazzy guitar solos. It's a superb rework all told and available in both vocal and instrumental variations; our pick is the former, but both are top-notch.

Review: Don't be fooled by the title here. While there's definitely a strong African influence to the six tracks featured on this EP from Greece's Timewarp, you don't need to be a lover of complex polyrhythms or breathy, chanted vox to appreciate them. Instead, ever-prolific Italian producer Lalinga looks to African funk and jazz of the 1970s for inspiration. 'Nasty Shit' comes at the sound from a hip-hop perspective and 'Rebellie' is the EP's most overtly house-leaning cut, while 'Afrikaanse Waansin' is the most traditional-sounding, but all six will work well on the floor and will have particular appeal for the breakers and jazz dancers.

Broken Wings (feat Christie Bell) - (3:30) 84 BPM
Review: It's been an epic eight years since we last heard from the yet to be understood project that is Auditors Domination; a breakbeat fusion of acoustic, electronic, instrumental and folk inspired experimental music that sits on a jazzy, soulful tip graced by the slightest of eastern-themed motifs. 2012 was the first and last that we heard from the project when Timewarp released their debut album Palace of Light, which was given a huge 10 artist remix package, and following nearly a decade out of the spotlight, Auditors Domination teases at the idea of another album with this Modern Times single. Take "Global Conspiracy" for your instrumental, jazz and fusion dose, with "Broken Wings" your laid back, vocal lounge time session.

Review: Long-player number four here from Croatia's Vladimir Sivc, better known as Funky Destination, and his third for Timewarp. The clue's definitely in the title, because it's largely soul rather than funk flavours that dominate - though we're talking sweaty 60s James Brown stompers rather than smoochy 70s love ballads, and admittedly that's one of music's most porous boundaries anyway! If you dig the likes of Speedometer, The Allergies, Skeewiff or Dr Rubberfunk you'll find much to enjoy here, with standouts including the blues harmonica-augmented 'Make It Fuzz' and the aptly-titled 'Bad Ass Jazz', while the string-laden 'Come Back To Me' has the most commercial, Amy-esque appeal.

Liberty Is Our Destiny (RSN instrumental remix) - (5:10) 50 BPM
Review: Another single here taken from Timewarp Inc's heavily reggae-inspired 'Theory Of Evolution' album, which dropped back in November. Already featured on the 'Theory Of Revolution' instrumentals package, 'Liberty Is Our Destiny' now gets remixed (in vocal and instrumental flavas) by fellow Athens resident Aris Rsn, who tones down the original's hip-hop elements while beefing up the bottom end. The actual song structure remains untouched, but in RSN's hands the track has a much heavier, more dubwise feel, and as such would probably work a lot better in straight-up reggae/dub sets than the original album version.

Review: It's been just a month since the loose musical collective centred around Greek producer Angelos Stoumpos released their fourth long-player 'Theory Of Revolution', and now here comes what is effectively Part Two, featuring instrumental versions of seven of the original 19 tracks. As per the album proper, reggae and dub vibes predominate, with the well-chosen title track and the Afro-influenced 'Restart' particularly deserving of your attention, but for funkateers the standouts will be lead single 'Realistic' (which sounds a lot more funk/hip-hop-oriented when stripped of its doo-wop vocal) and the lounge-y, Hammond-tastic 'I'll Be Okay'.

Review: Album number four here from Angelos Stoumpos and friends. It comes hot on the heels of trailer single Realistic, but the latter's languid doo-wop soul vibes, however excellent, aren't really indicative of the album as a whole, which packs a lot more reggae and dub than it does soul and funk. Standouts include the dubbed-out 'Tweaky' and the skankin' 'Liberty Is Our Destiny', which sports an old school-sounding scratch break in the midsection and a dancehall vocal courtesy of Gobey, while funk and disco lovers are catered for with cuts like 'Discogirls', 'Afrofunk' and fine, jazz-tinged closer 'Not Bad Disco'.

Realistic (feat Georges Perin) - (4:23) 94 BPM
Review: Greek producer Angelos Stoumbos, better known as Timewarp Inc, comes with a single-track release on his own label here. Featuring a vocal from Georges Perin, 'Realistic' has a lazy, laidback, vaguely doo-wop kinda feel, and in a fairer world could easily follow the likes of Aloe Blacc's 'I Need A Dollar' or Pharrell's 'Happy' into the upper reaches of the Top 40. Coming on a Greek indie label means it probably won't, of course, but you're still left with a very accessible little groover that'd work just as well in hip funk and soul clubs, or at weddings and bar mitzvahs.

Come Back To Me (Soopasoul remix) - (4:28) 59 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Timewarp bring us a single release from label regular Funky Destination, AKA Croatian producer/bandleader/arranger Vladimir Sivc. There are two mixes of 'Come Back To Me' to choose from and they're both quite different. In its Original form, it's a very competent but fairly standard-issue "new old" funk/soul jam with a rasping part-spoken/part-sung female vocal, handclaps, looped-up beats and some fine work on the strings. But check the accompanying remix from Soopasoul for something altogether more down n' dirty, complete with phat funk bassline, wukka-wukking guitar, hard-hitting JBs-like drums and some mournful sax towards the track's close. Album #4 is surely due soon, so this bodes well...

Review: Funky, jazzy instrumental vibes with a hint of Latino influence are what we get from Timewarp Greece this time out. Soupasoul's remix (for such it is) comes in two parts, a nod to the days when that's how longer tracks were served up on vinyl. Part 1 foregrounds the muted trumpet part that serves as a lead line, underpinned by a resolutely funky b-line and augmented by a nagging keyboard riff. Part 2 opens with an extended percussive break, then revisits all the same parts but in a dubbier style, with the parping trumpet only really making an appearance towards the end.

Review: With an EP title like that, and tracks called things like 'Afro Lions', 'Afro Afraid' and 'Afrolicious', we're not giving out any lollipops for guessing the overall musical mood here! Part IV in the series finds Lalinga and friends serving up eight more cuts (or rather, seven more plus a remix) that basically pastiche African funk of the 70s extremely faithfully - though there's room, too, for a hint of Latin influences (see 'Ipanema Funk'), a dash of 60s boogaloo ('The Frequency') and straight-up funk (Squerzanti Silvan's closing 'Road Trip', which is also given a more Afro-tastic makeover on the VI Mode Inc. Project Rework).

Review: Formerly regulars on US label Cold Busted, Bulgaria's Koka Mass Jazz - originally a solo project of producer Konstantin Katsarski, now a fully-fledged live band - recently moved over to like-minded Greek imprint Timewarp for their third long-player 'Elephunky Trip', from which this single is lifted. The Timewarp Inc Remix places Tiffany Blu's full-lunged soul vocal (which, lyrically, uses a traffic lights metaphor to discuss sexual consent) atop a backing made up of lilting Hammond chords, live hand percussion, a distinctly dubwise bassline and the occasional electric guitar squall, and is accompanied simply by a matching instrumental.

Review: Dutch breakbeat/funk producer Arjen Flipsen, better known as Niles Philips, returns to his regular home of Timewarp Music with four tracks of dusty, lo-fi hip-hop. 'Other People' takes extensive samples of spoken vocal that sound like they've come from a 1950s/60s educational film, and places them atop a backing that wouldn't sound out of place on a western soundtrack. 'Lovers' Battle' marries chipmunk'd R&B vox, crunchy beats and wonked-out strings, 'Compassion Level' loops up smoochy 70s soul vox over a hefty midtempo breakbeat, while closer 'When It Comes Down' is similar in style to the rest but with a more dubwise feel.

Review: Greek producer Angelos Stoumpos, better known as Timewarp Inc, brought us 'Discogirls' on his own Timewarp label last year, and now it's back with a brace of new mixes from fellow countryman Aris Kokou (whose real surname is actually Koukouselis). Kokou's Afro Disco Remix is pretty faithful to the original other than in the percussion department, where things get every bit as lively as you might expect. But if that's not enough of a workout for your dancers, then head for the fairly self-explanatory Afro Disco Beats mix, where those drums are REALLY let loose...

Review: Label boss Timewarp Inc. is back in business with his single "Discogirls" remixed by his Russian friend. You can expect a dance floor remix from the disco king Valentine Golovachev (aka Valique) where he gets on a trippy downtempo groove approach compared to the original's disco/funk track - and it is a nice move to taste something different. As the title states, this is a remix version made to watch the sunrise after a heavy night at the club!

As usual, you'll find tons of killer cuts to set the pulse racing, from the Sitar-laden mid-tempo skano of Stoumpos's remix of Supersan's "Suez" and the dubbed-out warmth of his version of "Some Melodic Jazz" by Erkos Quartet, to the Afro-infused bounce underpinning a superb rework of Banderas's punk-funk-tinged "Handbrake" and the sun-kissed trumpet solos and crunchy funk breaks of Mr Gagun's "Funky Dog". In other words, it's another hugely entertaining collection of remixes from the Athens scene stalwart.

First up is the third part of Timewarp's "Afrodisiac" series and seven slices of Afro-funk-fired dancefloor goodness. There's naturally much to admire throughout, from the lilting trumpet solos of bongo-powered opener "Ekskuus" and the chant-a-long 4/4 funk breaks business of "The Black President", to the punchy 1970s Afrobeat update that is "Imali", a cut available in both vocal and instrumental variations. Closer "Kumi", a deep, bass-heavy and musically rich mid-tempo Afro shuffler, is also top notch.

He's released a string of EPs on the Timewarp label, along with a collection of his remixes for other artists, and it's to Timewarp he returns with his debut artist album. His particular brand of funk is scuzzy, fuzzy and quite guitar-heavy, more redolent of late 60s/early 70s bands like War, Rare Earth or Sly & The Family Stone than glitzier outfits like Earth Wind & Fire or The Ohio Players. But if searing Hammonds battling their way through a psychedelic haze are your idea of fun you're gonna love it, while 'So Good So Tight' veers towards future R&B territory and 'Whiskey Wool & Fireplaces' adds a twist of jazz.

The eerie melodica echoes of "Adenai", the Saharan bumps and blasts of "Cadiz", the serious eastern mysticism but raw funk "Oulata" and the sliding jazz tinged blues of "Blues Rose" are just some of the highlights. Essential for fans of the Israeli funk movement such as Markey Funk.

Review: After a painfully lengthy hiatus on the solo material front, Koka Mass Jazz aka Konstantin Katsarski reigns supreme once again except this time the man's up on Greece's Timewarp label. We didn't expect this either given his sensibility for jazz music but this new LP, Elephunky Trip, strangely fits like a hand in glove with the imprint's usually more experimental sound archive. "Play The Game" opens with sultry blues vocals and laid-back sort of style, melting nicely into the instrumental jazz-funk of "At This Moment", before turning on the funky pop vibes again with "Getting Better", featuring Boyan Levchev on the vocals. Tiffany Blu is back on the ones and twos on "Summer Soul", a rude little tune that gets sexier by the bar, and there's more funk to be had with the likes of Krista featuring on yet another two dope cuts.

Review: Timewarp Music is an independent Greek record label since 2004, whose musical style moves through funk and nu-disco through to dub and breaks. Label boss Angelos 'Timewarp' Stoumpos now presents Funky Destination a.k.a Vladimir Sivc: the funkiest project based in Croatia's Istria region. He is back with his third full length album for the label. We Are All Shining Stars features a dozen or so funk and soul edits mainly, but not limited to rock 'n' roll, new nu-skool breaks and a bit of ol' fashioned soul to boot. From the block rockin' breaks of "Boom Bang", the super lo-slung "J.J's On Meskaline" or the sultry slo-mo balearica of "On My Way To Rio" - this is indeed one well funky destination.

Review: Italian producer Vito Lalinga presents his debut EP on Greek label Timewarp, bringing five hot tracks on his fresh Afrodisiac EP. Your fix of nu-funk, combined with broken beats and a touch of African vibes - as heard on the spiritual and life affirming "Fela Mania". Likewise, "Move Your Body In Africa" features a cinematic touch with a soulful style that Vito Lalinga always brings. This is a collaboration with his mates Angelo Dattuomo and Giancarlo Coppola as Vi Mode Inc. Project and we sure can't wait to hear what is in store next from this hot trio.

The perfect way to kick off a new year, Timewarp smash it once again.

On the flip side we hear the summer cruise anthem 'Sunday Chill' which features a fantastically laid back selection of instrumentation coupled with soft 4x4 drum patterns and cool guitar riffs.

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: Hellenic disco label Timewarp has been riding the boogie train for many years now, but when will a cut from label boss Angelos Stoumpos (aka Timewarp) ever arrive? Well now, that's when! Here he finally three jams, all connected by one common root - dub. Stoumpos is joined by half Greek/half French vocalist Georges Perin on opener, the fruity and fresh "Tropicaliente". Elsewhere, "Reggae On Dope" is thrilling mish-mash of gypsy rhythms and panpipe action and the smooth "Dub in Disco" is just that - hazy 4/4 spaced out grooves. There's even an instrumental version of the title track included to keep those headnodding vibes going.

From sunshine vibes, funky grooves and breakbeat through to house or downbeat. Once again Quincy selects a special mixture of unreleased music by well-known and upcoming artists. Block rockin' beats courtesy of Valique with "Long Journey" (Quincy Jointz remix) will sort you for deep funk, cheeky crooner Louie Austen is back since the electroclash days with the sleazy soul of of "Make You Move" (Quincy Jointz remix) and Stuttgart's Tobe Tronic serves up the deep, breaks driven nu-disco of "Night Drums".

There seven new tunes, should you wish to accept them, and don't worry - they won't self-destruct after you've played them. Oh no -they'll just keep delivering the disco action. Highlights include the ravey 60s psyche-out of the title track, the Austin Powers meets Man From UNCLE riff-ola of "Get On The Boat" and the bhangra-meets-garage-rock of "Sexy Toy".

Lucy Lune Gillespie features as the lead vocalist on the groovy little number named "The Heart Grows Fonder", which is followed by the boogie-tastic number "Gamma Rays". "The Gospel Way" is a soulful, marching breakbeat attack, while "Funk Ground" breaks out the funk breaks - guitar fuzz and all!

Review: They say an artist's muse can be refreshed following the release of a retrospective collection. Afternoons In Stereo (aka Greg Vickers) has been silent since the release of Retrospective in 2015, but now he returns with new long player, Echo Valley. Listening to these 13 tracks it's clear to see that he's found a new freshness to his sound. Highlights include the sombre, wafting lament "Eames In Dub", the wah-wah laden "Redondo Beach" that gets its 70s strut on and the wistful, breezy Balearica of "King Of The Iron Coast". So then, in short; a whole new shiny chapter for Vickers.

Review: The Timewarp label are one of this outfits who care more for diversity than they do about specialising in one particular genre. Through artists like Afternoons In Stereo or Afroqben, they've established their place as a label who can offer something way beyond the dance floor format, and into the varied and imperceptible genre we refer to as 'nu-jazz'. Mister T & Lucy Lune Gillespie are pretty much first-timers to the scene, but their debut EP, Retro Respect, suggests these two have been producing some serious music for a while. These six tracks are both a pleasure to the ear, and offer something different with each new verse; "Mental Playthings", for instance, is stuck between jazz-dance and house, while "Retro Respect" itself is a funky, swingy little number the recalls the 50s jazz smoke, and "Blame It On Me" steps away with some tasty little breakbeats. Lovely.

Mark who, again?

Timewarp is once again selector and some the many highlights he chosen here include the digi dancehall headnodder "Fyah Fyah" by Balkan Riddims, Jyal Funk's pulsating breaky electro rework of "Jamaican" by Funky Destination and the breathy jazzy shuffle of "Sensitive Kind" by Truez.

Elsewhere we encounter vintage electro-swing on Pavlov's "Moving Next Door", retro lounge-rock on "Jesu" By Loopez and even some good old big beat on "Jungle Boogie" by Chinese Man.

Review: One time funk/breaks producer turned party edit king, Valique, is not one to be burdened with the responsibilities that come with artistic credibility. This guy just wants to have a good time, and here on V-Shaped, a compilation of some of his best remixes, he provides 12 demonstrations of this philosophy. Highlights include his deliciously dreamy synth-disco rework of Kraak & Smaak's "How We Gonna Stop The Time", the accelerated swing/jazz minimal house of the "Dark Jazz Dub" by Nekta and his tough electro-funk remix of "Disco Life" by Basement Freaks. An impressive back catalogue indeed!

Song 4 Lou - (3:51) 82 BPM
Review: We've hardly heard from Timewarp's Leon since last summer, but now he's back with possibly his most commercial offering yet. "People Like Fashion" is an unashamed party soul ditty, with campy, sing-along recitals of big fashion label names. Sure to get people pulling some moves even the stiffest dancefloor. Elsewhere the title track is more authentic 80s electro-boogie, "Reality" is unreal soft focus 70s disco and "Song For Lou" is like Chris Rea soloing over a hazy soft porn soundtrack. What's not to love?

Liberty Is Our Destiny (feat Gobey - instrumental) - (4:57) 105 BPM
Review: After a slew of remixes and reversions and revisions, Greek funk dub troupe Timewarp return with two beautiful originals. "Theory Of Revolution" is a warm, organic groove that's coated in smoky croaky vocals from Georges Perin and peppered in guitar and melodica instrumentation. "Liberty Is Our Destiny" is a more upbeat track that's highly reminiscent of Fort Knox Five with its uptown breaks, nifty scratching and dubby washes. Complete with two dub versions, Timewarp leave no sonic stone unturned right here.

Review: There's no need for a funky bailout for Greece's Timewarp label as they have more than enough in reserve. So much so in fact, that they have rustled up another 31(!) fresh cuts for this, their latest compilation. Highlights include Niles Philip's quirky stop-start nu-funker "What'Cha Doin", the Euro/reggaeton hybrid weirdness of the Congo Sanchez remix of "Choices In Life" by AfroQBen and the bonkers electro-pop skank of "Blast" by good old Quincy Jointz (as remixed by Kowalski).

Review: Greg Vickers aka Afternoons In Stereo is a master at the art of electronica and all things downtempo. Over the years, the majority of his output has come out through the Timewarp label, to which he returns to at present with Retrospective, a collection of his own favourite productions from the last ten years. In there, you'll find his inimitable take on IDM and electro, most vividly represented by classics such as "El Puma", "Metrosexual", or the utterly memorable "Tinto Brass", a favourite around these parts.
