For those with a passion for soul, funk and disco, Dave Lee's recent Backstreet Brit Funk compilation was something of an essential purchase. You see, rather than revisiting well-known cuts from across the pond, it showcased a super-hot selection of long-forgotten British black music bangers. Here, some of those Brit funk obscurities get the re-edit treatment, with Ashley Beedle, Faze Action, Boy Norty and Onur Engin supplying the touch-ups. All treat the original material with reverence, preferring to subtly tweak and tease rather than rework. It's all good, with Faze Action's snappy beats and rubbery bass take on Elixia just nudging out Beedle's luscious jazz-funk extension of Nigel Martinez in the stand out stakes.
