Review: When operating under the V's Edits alias, re-edit maestro Valique can always be relied upon to bring the goods. It's little surprise, then, to find out that his latest collection of fresh cut-jobs - an epic affair featuring no less than 24 tracks - is packed to the rafters with high-grade fare. We don't have enough space to list all of the highlights, but we'd suggest checking out his rolling revision of Lee Dorsey's "Night People", the low-slung disco-funk heaviness of the Brass Construction rework ("Gotta Do It"), the intergalactic disco deepness of the Marvin Gaye revision ("Funky Space"), the lightly tooled-up, slowly unfurling take on Tom Browne's "Funkin For Jamaica" and the sweeping, string-laden disco brilliance of "Miracle (V's Edit)".
Review: Toolroom boss Mark Knight teams up with BBC 1's Danny Howard for one of the biggest house releases of the year. The title track rides a rolling, tech-house rhythm that is full of vocal samples and propelled by effective snare rolls. It's infectious, fun and really catchy. "Playing With My Heart" opts for a somewhat different approach. Reminiscent of early 90s New York house, its insistent, slightly menacing bass provides the back drop against which Knight and Howard add in repetitive vocal samples. Factor in some insistent filters and the pair give "Heart" the requisite push towards the big room.
