Played by: Don Dayglow, Kongisto
Review: Ganbatte's latest affair may be all-star affair, but Fabiolous Barker rightly takes top billing thanks to delivering two takes on his latest track, "The Expert". He opens the EP with a hybrid electro/disco flavoured "Old Skool Re-Master" full of whispered vocals, crunchy guitars, throbbing synth-bass and tight horn blasts, before returning at the end with a "Funka-Masta-House" version that underpins the music with a head-nodding house style beat. In between you'll find the bouncy, Hi-NRG era Latin disco-house insanity of Dim Zach's "La Habernaro", the dreamy harmony vocals and ear-pleasing nu-disco grooves of Carlos Gatto's "Call It Love" and the alien funk masterclass that is Don Dayglow's "Gotta Say Yes", a suitably throbbing revision of an old Yello favourite.

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: Subwoofah are rolling things out nicely here with a joint four-tracker from Grimesy and Speaker Louis, who manage to combine riotous jungle with more considered tones to great effect. 'It Was' lands more on the side of the former except it smashes out the jump up stabs over a staggered, junglist undercarriage which injects a whole new dynamic of broken, torn energy to create a proper choon. 'What You Do' is a bit more stripped back, a bit more focused on the drum side of things and it works really well, sub-bass stabs abound in the gaps and its all just very sick. Top work you two.

Review: Mexico's Deep Sense serve up a six-track EP that shows there's more than one way to go about repurposing a classic. Rather than simply looping up chunks of the original, the edits here get a little more creative - Sauco & Manuel Costela's 'Are We Ready?', for instance, takes the vocal from Fatback's 'Bus Stop' vocal and places it over a fresh (and utterly irresistible) funk backing, while on 'Last Nite' Tony Disco uses a similar trick to reinvent an InDeep classic in altogether sultrier, jazzier form. An equally well-known chanted vocal tops the brass-tastic 'Flamingo' from Hot Mood, and there are three more very playable nuggets where those came from!

Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: A reissue here for a sought-after Italo-disco classic from way back in 1983, as UTC Limited serve up two tracks that originally featured on the Orchestra Charles Brissot's one and only long-player 'Running For Fun'. 'Second Galaxis' owes a major debt of inspiration to Space's 'Magic Fly' from a decade earlier, being centred around a very similar-sounding plinky-plonky analogue synth riff (as well as some startlingly acid-like burbles), while 'Serenade To The Sunrise' is a gloriously cheesy affair with synthesized strings taking the lead - were The Love Boat ever to take off into outer space, this is what'd be playing in the ballroom!

Review: Greek producer Chris GS returns to Israel's Thunder Jam with four more slices of reworked vintage funk/disco goodness. He's dug nice and deep for this set, so the original source material remains a mystery in most cases, but in his hands 'Shake It' is a strings-drenched disco number that would've sounded right at home on the 'Saturday Night Fever' soundtrack, while 'Lady' rocks a slightly rawer funk vibe. The same goes for 'The Funk', which reworks Positive Force's 'We Got The Funk' from 1979, while finally 'About It' leans a little closer towards early 80s boogie territory.

Review: No slapsash edits here, just some cheery nu-dsco positivity from sometime Re-Loved re-editor Conan The Selector and guest vocalist Sherie. Her lead vocal is superb - think classic soulful house meets screaming disco diva - while Conan's backing track on "Disco Lights" is rich in twinkling piano motifs, handclap-heavy percussion, rich disco grooves and clipped, Chic style guitars. Conan's original version comes backed with two solid reworks, too. First Andy Buchan gives the track a slightly more electronic feel on his synth-laden nu-diusco revision, before Ash Reynolds layers delay-laden vocal snippets above a deep and dreamy disco-house groove on his headline-grabbing remix.

Review: Of late, Dean Meredith's Rogue Cat Sounds label has been exploring the more cosmic and Balearic end of the musical spectrum, so it's little surprise to see him welcome Italian legends DJ Rocca and Daniele Badlelli to the imprint. The storied twosome begins in fine fashion via the lilting electric guitar solos and bubby electronic disco grooves of "Sky Dump", before opting for a weirder and more psychedelic dancefloor sound on Afro-Cosmic workout "Massive Birth" and doffing a cap to Yello on the eccentric electronics of "Talorypo". The accompanying remix package is epic and uniformly high standard, though if we were picking favourites we'd opt for Warehouse Preservation Society's warm, thickset nu-disco version of "Talorypo" and Mind Fair's Chicken Lips-esque rework of "Massive Birth".

'Fluty Loops' itself opens with an intricate, extended percussive intro, before funk geetar and stabby strings usher in the meandering flute line that gives the track its title - imagine Joey Negro remixing Roy Ayers and you're somewhere in the ballpark. 'Everybody' shows the same attention to detail in the percussion department but has a more Chic-ish vibe, while completing the EP is the more sultry 'Been So Hard', which comes on like Linda Clifford given a Balearic makeover...

Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: Funky Town reissue two tracks from Sound Factory Inc's 1977 long-player 'Night Shift'. 'The Limehouse Groover' opens with a resonating gong hit before revealing itself to be a sunny, carefree jazz-funk/jazz-fusion affair with a synthesized saxophone lead line - the likes of Spyro Gyra, Mezzoforte or Morrissey-Mullen would be useful reference points here - while 'The Funky Beauty' is a more uptempo number that leans towards Euro/Italo disco, with organic sax and trumpets counterpointing analogue synths that are very much of their time. It's all a bit "70s sitcom soundtrack", but leave your fromage-phobia at the door and just enjoy!

Editor-in-chief Valique is the man at the controls, gleefully charging between chunky, bass-heavy Afrobeat goodness (the chant-along heaviness of "Like It Is"), party-hearty deep house/disco-funk fusion (the heavy house beats and toasty electric piano stabs of "Mercy", shirts-off celebratory disco ("Disco Dancer"), swinging, Hammond-rich Philly Soul (Timmy Thomas rework "Got To See You Tonight") and strobe-lit peak-time insanity (the Clavinet-sporting disco rush of "Midnight"). In other words, it's another top-notch selection of club-ready revisions from one of the hardest working editors in the scene.

Review: Gather round: Editorial is revealing the contents of the mythical "Disco Scrolls", a sacred document for all those who kneel at the altar of the Church of Nu-Disco. It contains eight audio commandments, all of which should be listened to intently. Salvation comes first via the fluid nu-disco positivity of Bica's "Endless Rhodes" and the disco-house grooves of the soulful and musically expansive "Because I'm Black" by Old Chap. Elsewhere, you'll find righteous testimony from Hotmood (via the deep disco-funk of "Only Your Mom Calls Me Daddy"), The Owl (the boisterous horns and filter tricks of "Shake"), Frank Virgilio (the lolloping party disco-funk of "Out Here"), Labour Of Love (the bassline-driven percussion-fest that is "Good Feelin") and NFC and Key Sokur (the rubbery and down-low disco fun of "City Affair").

'Feeling Of Spirits' is a midtempo shuffler that slowly breaks out into an intricate jazz-funk keys workout, 'Keep Strangers' is a Chic-y stomper, 'Liquid Disco' has distinctly Candido-esque overtones, 'Lay In Low (MF-SB Version' is a mellower, more lounge-y cut with muted space disco stabs and finally 'Simply Around' rocks a funkier, Blaxploitation-like vibe. With all five highly authentic-sounding and avoiding obvious samples, heavy rotation at the likes of Glitterbox and Horse Meat Disco is pretty much guaranteed.

Review: With "Rhythm & Waves", Russian producer Sunner Soul seems to be daydreaming of sunnier and warmer times. There's certainly something suitably sun-kissed about the title track, which gently beefs up and re-arranges a bouncy, Clavinet-heavy chunk of groovy disco-funk that comes smothered in atmospheric party sounds. The tighter, slap bass-sporting "Universal Disco" explores similar sonic territory, while "Red Hot Disco" sees him layer up the percussion and filter sweeps on a joyful, mid-set workout. Elsewhere, "Let's Somebody Love" is a soaring slice up tooled-up disco-soul and "Get ready With Me" is a fine slab of string-laden boogie brilliance that sounds like it was beamed down from a distant disco planet.

It's an attractive place where loopy, filtered and delay-heavy disco-house revisions of obscure turn-of-the-80s cuts ("I Need Your Love") rub shoulders with Clavinet-sporting slabs of disco-funk/AOR disco fusion in an echo chamber filled with bell-bottom flares, hoary haircuts and flash-fried DJ effects ("Jump"). The corridors of Older's cranium also boast doors to P-funk-fired dancefloor shufflers ("The Magic") and bouncy, house style cut-ups of glassy-eyed Philly Soul numbers (EP highlight "You Are Perfect").

Our highlights include the aptly named house retro-futurism of "Something Jazzy", the bounding, bass-heavy haziness of title track "Street Groove", the colourful nu-disco/deep house fusion of "Feels So Good" and the slap-bass propelled wonder that is "I Think You Like", where bongo-heavy hand percussion and bumpin' house drums combine to create an energy packed peak-time mood.

'I Don't Belong To You' kicks things off in fine brass-parpin' style and 'Use Your Imagination' brings the album to a close with sprightly bass, whistling synths and a spoken female vocal, while in-between you'll find eight more tracks ranging from non-cheesy disco-house ('I Want To Hear This') to west coast-ish funk ('Shake Their Bodies'), with Zapp-esque squelchy synth basslines and vocodered vox much in evidence throughout.

He quickly switches focus on "I'll Be Good", a deliciously driving and low-slung rework of a heavy swamp funk workout blessed with hazy, ear-catching vocal samples and cut-glass disco strings, before whipping off his top and slinging his arms aloft via soaring disco re-edit "Feel It".

Review: Russian disco edit fiend Valique serves up another hot Boogie Box and we're up to number three already! Highlight's on here not limited to Princess' smooth ergonomics displayed on the re-splice of the Prince classic "Sexy Dancer", Feel The Vibe's great cover of "Get Down Tonight" looped for your pleasure by Kc/Sub and they save the best for last with Mr Faded/Blackhead's (aka McFadden & Whitehead's) 1979 classic "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now". They are all 're-re-edited' by the way: by none other than Valique himself. Trust the DJ!

This full tracklisting offers up seven original smashers from Jonny, along with a Cut & Paste version of 'Funky Time', with JPSTOL supplying two original creations for good measure. There are a few clear standouts with MC Coppa's vocal assistance on 'Never Get Old' being one of them, along with the high energy, shuffling breaks and bubbling bass tones of 'Drop This In The Middle'.

Consequences - (6:01) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Played by: Philippe Petit
Review: There's a serious message running through the latest release on Decision Making Theory. The work of label owner Philippe Petit, it states that humanity is witnessing 'a meltdown' and that we will be left to deal with the aftermath. By way of a soundtrack, there's the knotted, acid-heavy "Causes", while the title track is a heads-down, relentless affair that just keeps on building. Thankfully though, it's not all bad news; closing track "Consequences" offers some solace. Despite cruises along at 130bpm, its layered, building chords and scatter gun percussion create a euphoric Detroit-style finale to this socially aware EP.

Matt's Ring - (6:10) 115 BPM
Review: Although he's contributed numerous tracks to recent compilations, this three-tracker from Frank Virgilio is actually the enthusiastic label-hopper's first single since the spring. He begins by applying his magic touch to a prime slice of horn-heavy purple funk, wrapping the original's flash-fried guitars, tasty trumpets and scat style vocals around a chunky disco-house style groove. He dips the tempo - but not the floor-friendly intensity - on "Cat In Rio", a low-slung dub disco affair that boasts a suitably heavy bassline and plenty of sun-kissed, samba-soaked synths, while closing cut "Matt's Ring" is a loopy, disco-house style cut-up of Matsubara's "SOS", a jazz-funk/disco fusion classic that used to get regular rotation at David Mancuso's legendary Loft parties.

"Galaxy" sets the tone with a sleazy strutting war cry before we're hurled into a Latin frenzy on both the sultry "Camina" and the bull-fighting "Descarga". Elsewhere "Leroy Loves Ya" brings the soulful touch and "JB World" closes with a little psychedelic mystique.

Review: In which no fewer than 24 rock and indie classics get reworked for the dancefloor. Admirably, the mysterious V avoids the temptation to simply whack a 4/4 kickdrum under everything - in fact, many of the cuts could better be described as remixes or reworkings rather than simple re-edits. Inevitably, some of the resulting concoctions work better than others - and which you think that applies to may depend on your views on the original source material - but if you're looking for a way to drag non-house/disco lovers onto the floor, this collection should serve you well.

We kick off with the high energy vocal lines and choppy drum inputs of 'Find Our Way', which could inject energy into any dance, followed by the more unusual jittery synthesizers and organ tones of 'Let Me Show You'. This whole project is laced with infectious vocal lines, a theme that continues heavily throughout the groovy tones of 'Moving On', before we finish up the EP in serious style with the super choppy drumwork and interesting melodic structures of 'Realize'.

Review: Thunder Jam's latest EP comes from a producer yet to make his (or her) mark in music, the capital letter loving REZ. The artist has another EP due out on Hatched soon; if this debut EP is anything to go by, that will be well worth a listen. We're particularly enjoying the chugging, slow-motion disco-rock head-nod that is opener "Too Cool To Be Careless", a revision of a well-known 1980s AM radio hit that will have your dancefloors singing along when the chorus eventually drops. Elsewhere, "Believe In Magicians" re-imagines a quirky and bluesy swing number into a locked-in chunk of hip-house, while "It Was All A Dream" successfully rearranges a slap-bass sporting chunk of "juicy", 80s-inspired 1990s hip-hop/R&B.

"Freak U Higher" is more of a bootleg mash-up, splicing Missy Elliot's vocals from get "Ur Freak On" to Jackie Wilson's "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher".

Perhaps the most alluring of these "spirits" is opener "Constanera Montana", a vibraphone sporting shuffle through drowsy Rhodes chords and metronomic beats, though the heavy and low-slung "The Bright Day" and all-action electrofunk workout "Voice of Saturn" run it close. Elsewhere, "Sprit of the Boogie" is a bass-heavy disco-funk party jam smothered in high-grade horn lines and brilliant bass guitar, while "Jazzy Patterns (Raw Edit)" is an accurately titled blend of dusty machine drums, jazz samples and crazy special effects.

F-Block's "Jah Bone" combines all manner of echo-laden dub guitar with filthy dubstep bass, while Wood N Soo's "Smoke 2 Joints" is a contemporary update on The Toyes' classic, filling it with rolling snares and powerful low end. Subtifuge's "Love 4 U" is a slightly more skanking effort, with rolling D&B rhythms completely at odds with its laid back mood, while DJ Tzinas' "Wicked" combines a horn sectiona and tropical acoustic guitar with some serious dub airhorn - big stuff all round!

Review: Known for his work on Midnight Riot, Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit, among other labels, here London-based Argentinian producer Fabiolous Barker comes to the Katakana stable with three very fine re-edits. 'Only Fools Fall In Love' is a midtempo groover with female vocal harmonies, subtle guitar chops and an overall early 80s boogie vibe, 'Sending My Love' centres around a full-phat funk bassline and the Cameo-esque male "sending my love from me to you" vocal, while finally 'Weakness' has a male scatted vocal and tinkling keys. The source material has our disco detectives beat this time out, but all three are eminently spinnable.

Highlights include the sexy sax cut-ups, colossal builds, swirling effects and bumping beats of Rafael Fernandez's "Ode To A.J", the fuzzy electronics, densely layered percussion and whistling melody lines of Sould Out's "Doctor Kongas", and the celebratory disco-funk rush of The Funk District's "Time Will Tell". Hotmood's loopy but essential opener, "In A Disco", is also well worth regular rotations.

E Muita Raca - (4:41) 119 BPM
Review: Like Ronseal's quick-drying wood varnish, "Brazilian Edits" does "exactly what it says on the tin". It sees Muleke and Leo Mafra work their magic on two typically sunny and life-affirming Brazilian cuts of old. First up is the carnival-ready brilliance of "Sarava", a genuine rush of turn-of-the-'70s positivity blessed with righteous horn arrangements, funk-rock guitars, cheery male vocals and locked-in samba-disco drums. Arguably even better is "E Muita Raca", a tasty revision of a little-known P-funk era number rich in Parliament/Funkadelic style synths, Prince-ish guitar riffs, punchy horns and chant-along vocals. Two cuts guaranteed to get the party started: what's not to like?

Review: The late Tony Joe White's 70s/80s adventures in fusing blues-y swamp rock with disco and funk never met much success, and he's better known as a songwriter - he penned 'Rainy Night In Georgia', for instance. Here, though, 1983's 'Swamp Rap' becomes 'Country Rap', and the result is a slightly novelty-esque but truly distinctive-sounding funk slab. Fred Wesley's 'House Party' and The Chi-Lites' 'Bottoms Up' get similarly funked up as 'Gonna Have A Party' and 'Turn The House Down', respectively, while 'Other Sight' draws from sources unknown but has a go-go feel. 'Country Rap' is the one that'll really prick up ears on the dancefloor, though.

That's certainly the case with "Moonlight" - a wonky bundle of 6am sunrise hugs edited into shape by Yves Saint Lau'rant - and Anthony Mansfield's delightfully subdued "Cosmic Annie". There's some straight-up party flavours in the shape of Disco Tech's bumpin' rework of perennial Dolly Parton fave "Jolene", while Cole Medina successfully dubs out a deep house love song on "Your Love".

Review: When delivering a V's Edits release, Valique tends to pack the EP with tried-and-tested, club-ready reworks, and plenty of them. That's certainly the case on this latest outing, which boasts six razor sharp cuts. There's much to admire throughout, from the wavy positivity of AOR disco-soul opener "This Lady" and the sparkling cheeriness of "All Mine", where one of disco-boogie's most memorable moments gets smothered in filters and compression, to the new wave era electro-rock moodiness of "Hey, La!" Also worth a listen is the heady, intoxicating shuffle of "Funkin' For Kingston", where a break digging boogie classic is subtly extended and rearranged.

Yomakomba - "Hold You" - (4:42) 117 BPM
Review: Po-faced disco and boogie purists should probably steer clear of this five-tracker from the Tru Funk crew. For the rest of us, there's plenty to enjoy. The action is typically floor-friendly, offering party hearty thrills with just enough purist flavour to impress. Agent 86 drops a deliciously synth-heavy stepper in the form of "Sticky Funk", while Jamie Ruz closes his eyes and lets the jazzual guitar solos flow on the soft focus boogie-soul jam "Lovers Delight". Yomakomba's "Hold You" should inspire a few "moments" on the dancefloor with its sinewy combination of '80s soul and Balearic house chug, while Trotter's "40 Degrees" is a slamming chunk of slap bass-heavy disco house.

Review: Every now and then, in between artist EPs, Tru Funk knock out a mini compilation of bootlegs where the original artists get spliced together like Frankenstein's monsters of funk. Highlights of this five tracker include Tom Showtime's fusing of Khia's famously filthy My Neck, My Back with some of Snoops' Gangsta Luv on "Gangsta Lick", Phibe's totally eccentric party smasher "Dig My Bounce" (which mixes Missy Elliot with No Diggity) and Spox's electro funk monster "Roses" which beefs up Haywood's '80s classic of the same name.

The Beat Selecta - "Bat Bomb!" - (4:20) 131 BPM
Review: More scrumptious sonics from the Polish party crew, the fourth volume of Tru Funk's "Tasty Beats" series sees old friends and new lay down five sizzling jams that will guarantee unified butt-shaking. New faces Bruno Borlone and Boogie Mike lay down a Spanish rap funk jam "I Like The Party", DJ Axe pays homage to Nice & Smooth and Curtis Blow, ElectroGorilla reach for the lazers with the euphoric breakbeat flexor "Funky Beast" and Rory Hoy and Saxon Scoundrels get busy on a classic rock and swashbuckling drum vibe with "Bouncin & Rockin". Finally The Beat Selecta boldly fixes up the classic Batman theme tune on a D&B with - quite cleverly - Hijack's "Badman Is Robbin" rap originally sampled by DJ Supreme. Holy bootlegs!

Weekend Express - "Deeper" (original mix) - (6:44) 115 BPM
Review: Victoria's finest come together to launch the Melbourne Deepcast imprint, proving that there's much more to the city than great coffee. Up first is Lewie Day - perhaps better known to the record buying public as Tornado Wallace - who drops the immensely pleasing soulful mid tempo bump of "Some Kind Of Man", a sample-heavy house jam that has been receiving a lot of love on the Juno office turntable. This is followed by "Devoted", an effort from MD head honcho Andy Hart that shimmers with Motor City soul - watch out for those keys! Up next there's some eagerly anticipated new tackle from Fantastic Man, with the deep groove/low slung riffage of "From Start To Finish" sounding like a snug fit for the 6th Borough Project back cat, while Weekend Express's "Deeper" bristles with vintage Chicago vibes. An auspicious debut.
