Review: The Katakana edit express thunders on with their 11th installment of party breaks. This time the overwhelming vibe is of retro soul, jazz and swing. The latter is handled with a Latin influence on "I'll Be A God Man" and "Lovely TV" by DJ Clairvo, while the amazingly-named DJ Oli Garch provides a breaky, swingy version of jazz standard "Summertime. Lastly Timewrap opts for some Cuban-tinged grooves on "Miami", as well as a cheeky retweak of The Velvelettes' Motown classic "He Was Really Saying Something".

Lee Mazah - "Revans" - (5:57) 113 BPM
Review: The Katwana Edits crew can usually be relied upon to deliver reliable, floor-friendly edits that get just the right balance between contemporary dancefloor chops and original swing. This four-tracker from Timewrap and Lee Mazah is, unsurprisingly, pitched perfectly. The epic "We're Gonna Rule The World" cleverly blends a number of shuffling disco-soul classics, without ever sounding lie a needless mash-up. "Listen To This" ups the tempo, brilliantly chopping up a soaring, basement-friendly disco-funk jam. Lee Mazah's cheeky "Funky Cameron" goes straight for the P-funk jugluar (via an electrofunk take on the US national anthem and some ace party atmosphere samples), while "Revans" is an outlandishly groovy disco-funk stomper.

Review: Is it that time already? Yep, yet another installment in Katakana's ever progressing re-edit series is here and this time the spotlight shines on regular label contributor Timewrap who delivers four of his finest. Having last occupied this role covering Duran Duran back on number 14, Timewrap looks more to other eras this time round. We get loose and funky 90s hip-hop vibes on the Beasties-sampling "Dopesmokah" and "Old Bisties". Meanwhile headnodding retro 70s funk meets party rap on "Bambooka" and the breezy, jazz guitar-laced Balearic house of "Jazzme" wraps things up nicely.

Review: Forever to be considered a spelling mistake, re-edit hero Timewrap handles creative duties on the latest installment of the Katakana Edits series. With just two tracks on this 32nd volume, it's a short and sweet affair, but hey, it's the holiday season. Timewrap certainly has holidays on his mind here with both tracks having a dubbed-out and rum-soaked sunny atmosphere, based around the riddim from the Willie Williams classic" Armagideon Time." The chunkier version wins it here.

Girls On Drugs (dub) - (5:08) 120 BPM
Review: Katakana Edits regulars Timewrap return to the ever-reliable label with another trio of dancefloor-focused reworks. Perhaps the headline attractions are the two alternate takes on Duran Duran's '80s classic "Girls On Film" (here re-titled "Girls on Drugs"). Both versions (vocal and Dub, the latter of which is our pick) make much of the original's restless punk-funk bassline, tough (but tasteful) new drums and plenty of delay. Arguably even stronger, though, is "Yakayaka", a stretched out, tweaked and teased version of Monyaka's odd (but essential) 1983 reggae-boogie cut "Go Deh Yaka (To The Top)". Stitching together the best bits of the original and dub with new electronics and even more dubwise effects, it offers an excellent, dancefloor-ready alternative to the '83 12".

Review: If you're looking for some cheeky, party-starting music with a difference, this selection of electro-swing re-edits could be perfect. Featuring reworks that range from straight-up swing ("Swing In Rome"), and sweaty mambo-house ("Vira IV"), to heavyweight Arabian jams given a contemporary twist ("Caravan Boot"), there are plenty of horn-toting global rhythms to enjoy. By far and away the best track, though, is closer "Drum & Salsa", which dispenses with additional kits and house production trickery in favour of intricate percussion, Latino swagger and choice vocal samples. Does what it says on the tin. Well, kind of.

Review: In keeping with the previous five releases in this series, Vol 6 of Katakana Edits once again takes vintage tunes and chops 'em up, adding extra modern percussion and the like, to deliver contemporary dancefloor fillers with an old skool twist. This release uses very old songs as the basis for each tune: vintage blues for the Moby-esque "Run Blind", Latino mambo on "Pussycat" and Mexicana on "Yiri Cumbia". Conversely, and perhaps to keep the audience on their toes, "Bitch Boot" features samples of foul-mouthed rap including "My Neck, My Back" by Khia!

First up Timewrap teams up with Mister Vagz to drop a perky big beat hoedown in the form of "Soul Fingaz", before the mighty Timewrap steps in and slows things down with the soulful Reggae grooves of "Jalec".

Hot on the heels of their space disco collection comes this equally spotless set of versions, edits and booties ranging from dub-style hip-hop to all-out trouser swinging Motown monsters. Highlights include beastie skanker "Dopesmokah", the doo-wap walloper "Say Some", the big band cosmic soul drama of "Dr Ray", the middle eastern mischief of "Ida Tharis" and the psychedelic hip-hop funk of "Bambuta".

Kabashaka (Acid dub) - (5:06) 120 BPM
Review: Timewrap's last few releases on Katakana Edits have been epic affairs that gather together a sizeable collection of party-starting reworks. This one - the Rhode Island imprint's 72nd release in total - takes a different approach, offering up two acid-fired revisions of spiraling, tongue-in-cheek disco workout "Kabashaka". The Katakana regulars begin with an "Acid Vox" version that wraps psychedelic, mind-altering TB-303 disco lines around big house beats, swirling disco instrumentation and suitably camp, over-the-top vocals. Arguably even better is the "Acid Dub", which allows the distinctive acid motifs a little room to breathe while tooled-up drum hits and vocal snippets ricochet around the sound space. Both versions sound like serious dancefloor heat.

Review: Katakana follow up the rather tasty EP from Frey Bentos with this bountiful compendium of Timewrap's juiciest, most cosmic edits. Ranging from the surefire party belters such as the slick and sprightly twist on "Pick It Up" to the spaced-out take of double-D pop fave with "Girls On Drugs" via the sprightly island bliss of "Stayin" and the chugging, subtly-filthed, horn-melting "Lost", it's a sunset to sunrise session with every shade of star-lit groove your dancefloor can ever ask for.

Review: Katakana Edits first compilation, 2017's "Crate Diggin", was an epic collection of high-grade re-edits, mash-ups and reworks packed to the rafters with tried-and-tested dancefloor treats. This belated follow-up is even more epic, with the popular label squeezing in no less than 50 tracks that variously touch on riotous disco-funk, dub disco, new wave, disco-rock, deep funk, Afro-boogie, swamp funk, Latin beats, boogie, pitched-down chuggers, boogaloo, hip-hop and everything in between. You'd expect that standard to be high - it is a "best of" collection after all - and it is. If you need an instant armoury of scintillating club cuts, look no further.

Review: If life teaches you anything it's to expect the unexpected. Here the mighty re-edit label Katakana deliver their 42nd instalment of scapel jobs. However, this time, rather than have a specific producer curate an EP, they've shaken up the formula and delivered a compilation of edits. There's a whopping 24 reworks to enjoy too, many thrills and spills, but our favourites include Morlack's explosive drum-lead MJ cover, "Don't Stop", Mister Vagz' corny 60s mash-up "Love Me Venus" and Dim Zach & Deem's baggy rework of the Happy Monday's sublime "Loose Fit".

Review: This decidedly epic collection marks Katakana Edits's first foray into the compilation market and is designed as a "best-of" style outing. It boasts 30 reworks, mash-ups, remixes and re-edits gleamed from the prolific imprint's first 50 singles. Naturally, club-ready material comes thick and fast, with a multitude of genres - think swamp funk, disco, dub disco, electrofunk, Italo-disco, hip-hop, reggae and dancehall - and wide variety of tempos represented. Naturally, some of the reworks tend towards the well known, though there are also plenty of rubs of lesser-known gems for those who want to dig deeper than familiar peak-time anthems. Most importantly, the standard remains impressively high throughout.

Review: This latest offering from the shady Katakana Edits crew makes their previous offerings seem positively anemic by comparison. Boasting a whopping 22 tracks, it's almost certainly guaranteed to provide decent ammo for every house party imaginable. Highlights include the chugging electro dub sing-along "Shakka Boom" by DJ Clairvo, the p-funk meets disco of vibes of "Miami Freaks" by Lee Zamah and Timewrap's pumped up version of The Velvettes's perennial Motown classic, "He Was Really Sayin' Something".

Review: Just four tracks to be found on the Katakana Edits crew's latest instalment their ongoing disco comp series. Still, it's all about the quality, not the quantity and there's plenty of that still to be found. Bonnie & Klein deliver the warped hypnotic funk of "Kung Fu Love", LCA & Voodoo Cuts serve up a vintage-jazz-meets-daisy-age-rap joint, old skool ragga-roots is the order of the day on Timewrap's good time anthem, "Dubshine". Oligarch arrives with the raucous "Swingin'" to wrap things nicely, and nicely he does.

Review: Inventive re-edit maestro Vida G has invented edgy scalpel jobs for a plethora of recognised nu-disco labels, and now he commandeers the latest installment of Katakana's long running Edits series. We get two tracks - "Nu Soul", which sees stoner G-funk vibes fused with hazy filtered disco samples (it also gets a speedy adrenaline boost via Maikon's mix), and the choppy cut-hop of "Supa Soul", which is also remixed - this time in a swooshy trip-hop style by Timewrap.

Review: Interesting move here for established re-edit crew Katakana's ongoing eponymous edits series; rather than choose one compiler, they've chosen several. It's not a bad idea, either, with three different sets of producers providing a selection of their own unique takes on disco obscurities. Highlights include Timewrap's Average White Band rejig "Pick It Up", Dim Zack & Deem's subtly muscular disco version of In Deep on "Check It", and their delicate take on Herb Alpert's classic "Rise".

Review: After honing his skills with a series of well-regarded re-edit releases, DJ Butcher changes tack here, delivering a devilishly sweet fusion of deep electrofunk, B-boy breaks and old skool hip-hop vocals. Clearly designed as a tribute to late '70s/early '80s hip-hop (check out the Sugarhill Gang/Furious Five style vocals), "Sol Wrap" has enough about it to suggest that it will easily slip into contemporary party sets. There's an instrumental, too, for those who can't be doing with the vocal, while Leftside Wobble offers up a slick remix that replaces the bass with pulsing vintage synth hits. The Latin-flavoured Timewrap Remix is pretty tasty, too.
