Review: St Albans-based Hansi serves up four more covers on this latest addition to the long-running 'Funky Grooves' series on his own Viking Grooves. 'Changes' gets the ball rolling, rendering Black Sabbath's classic heartbreak ballad in a tortured, southern soul style - it's almost like Otis's revenge for the Black Crowes! The other choices of cover on the EP are perhaps less surprising - Timmy Thomas's 'Why Can't We Live Together', Run DMC's 'Peter Piper' and The Jimmy Castor Bunch's 'It's Just Begun' - but in all cases Hansi puts his own distinctive spin on the original, making for an EP with more than its fair share of attention-grabbers.

Review: Bringing the dubbed out reggae vibes back to Viking Grooves is Hansi with a sweet four-track EP of dub dub dub. Keeping it smokey yet steppy in "Rewd Boi", get your dance lessons served to you by Lee Scratch in "Avin' A Party Tonite" alongside the dubstep beats and slowed down Mary J. Blige samples of "Tee-C-Her". Super rare dub edits to explored across this EP, get your slice of lover's rock in "Jonny Be Good".

Review: The mysterious Hansi has been quietly turning out the re-edit EPs from his secret underground lair in St Albans since 2017. Here, the 'Funky Grooves' series (he has others) reaches its 13th installment, which is lucky for you if you're looking for some new raw-assed funk nuggets to play with - head for the slow n' sleazy 'Alrite Now' or 'Party Is A Groovy Thing' (which reworks a 1975 People's Choice jam) and you'll be more than satisfied. If, on the other hand, you're after something more instantly recognisable, Hansi can do you decent reworkings of George McCrae and a 1962 mod jazz classic from Herbie Hancock, too...

Review: British DJ Hansi is back on his Viking Grooves imprint with a bunch of surefire 'Disco Bangers'. All edits of course, but they are respectul so that's all that matters. You'll notice that timeless groove of "Give Me The Night" which he's pitched down just perfectly. He gets on a pumped-up and funky disco house vibe on the infectious "Sweet Love" and then of course there is "Every One's A Winner" which is a dead give away right there. Again, the razor and tape was adjusted just perfectly for that slo-mo effect - nice one!

Review: The U.K.'s Viking Grooves claim to be taking the world to a funkier place by rehashing old dusty grooves and giving them a new lease of life. That is certainly true for the latest release by St Albans based DJ and live sound engineer Hansi. The label staple hands in another terrific release here in the form of the Slow Stompers EP. Featuring the '60s rock swagger of "Candy Man", the low-slung funk attack of "Just Keep On Doing It" in addition to "Buck Stomp" which will get you stoned into its slo-mo groove. Finally, the sensual feel of a stone cold classic on "Para Dice" will have you hooked as soon as you hear that vocal drop.

Review: Hansi in the house for a ninth volume of Funky Grooves! At four-tracks large Viking lights it up with some rolling disco and rock-funk in "Save Me" that takes a left of field, dub reggae and hip hop turn in "I & I" - Blackboard lover's rock! Check da wonder funk in the vogue disco and pumping horns of "Summertime Groove" next to the hairspray house grooves of a looped up funk classic by KC and the Sunshine Band. Shake Shake Shake.
