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)".

It's label like Minimatic that keep the party going for another decade. Where electro-swing goes for sped up ballroom and big band jazz, Minimatic's approach to genre reformation takes the likes of UK pop (Oasis and "Owner of A Lonely Heart"), US hip hop ,(Eminem, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga) to slices of R&B via Ed Sheeran and dresses them up latin rhythms of baile and urban funk, adding touches of turntablism, jazzy horns and keys to lowriding grooves.

The Funky Beauty - (3:34) 121 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
The Limehouse Groover - (4:10) 87 BPM
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!

Cosmic Funk 7EXCLUSIVE
Plastic City - (4:04) 55 BPM
Cosmic Funk 7 - (3:29) 58 BPM
New Space - (3:45) 80 BPM
Review: Sound Exhibitions bring us the seventh installment in DJ Moy's 'Cosmic Funk' series, and it's an EP that looks firmly to the future. There's no slavish rehashing of 1970s musical tropes here: instead, Moy takes the languid, attitude-y groove of 70s funk and reapplies same with a thoroughly modern sound palette. 'Cosmic Funk 7' itself, for instance, has something of a Balearic feel, while 'New Space' has a thunderous breakbeat and house-y pianos. The result is an EP that defies glib categorisation, but whose three tracks will work on a wide variety of floors.

All laced with a heavy rhythmic theme, attention to groove detail is paid throughout as we're treated to range of classic and deeply dug edits. "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.

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!

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.

Next, we move slightly more funky as the catchy vocal lines of 'Ye Mele' and the classic disco drum work of 'Comanche' wade into view. Finally, we finish off this very eclectic body of work with 'Bebo's Beat', pulling together Rat Pack style brass sections and subtle vinyl scratches for one hell of a finale.

Review: Bustling breakbeat badman turned re-edit hero Morlack has served up some scintillating stuff of late, including a brilliant four-tracker on Katakana Edits. Here he gets his re-edit groove on for Thunder Jam. It's a decent label debut which moves from vaguely Balearic '80s Afro-boogie (the synth and filter-sporting "Kalimba Tree") to chunky, hard-wired P-funk brilliance (the Bootsy Collins-esque bounciness of "Agony"), via smooth, slick and seductive '80s soul ("Control", whose slap-bass, screeching car tyre effects and sassy female vocals are particularly alluring) and horn-toting, big studio electrofunk ("Lovin' U"). In other words, it's another tidy collection of cuts.

Rayko ups the tempo a little with his mix of the boogie wonder "S&M (Sexy Music), while WD label-head Sleazy McQueen has a lot of fun with Stevie Wonder's "Do I Do", looping up instrumental sections just right for a new perspective on this classic Stevie joint.

'All The People' cuts up an unidentified, lounge-y soul take on Blues Magoos' 1967 garage/psych nugget 'The People Had No Faces', while Esther Phillips' 1971 cover of Gil Scott-Heron's 'Home Is Where The Hatred Is' provides the basis for the EP's standout cut, heartbreakingly melancholic closer 'Home'.

Review: Paris DJs are a Paris-based production team featuring the likes of Djouls, Grant Phabao, Loik Dury & Ben Hito and featuring guest vocalists, musicians, deejays, graphic/web designers and writers. This is a great compilation showing off the state off things in their collective at the present time.. and it's impressive! Starting off with funk soul jam of Connie Price & The Keystones - "El Nino" which sounds like something from the film Shaft. QASB's "Jaguar" channels the spirit of Curtis Mayfield on this equally brilliant seventies inspired soul jam. It's a mixed bag on here; take for instance the rhythm and blues jam by Stepak Takraw, "Phat Fat Jackson" or the sultry urban R&B j of Baby Jaymes' "21 Questions" that would make R. Kelly stand up and notice! Our favourites are the smoky, latin love balled by The Echocentrics ("Has Regresado Viejo" feat Natalia Clavier) and Whitefield Soundz- "Safari Strut" which summons the spirit of the late, great Jimi Hendrix of this fuzzy, psychedelic rock excursion.

Review: Paris DJs earned themselves a serious reputation as kings of the compilation with their online mixes notching up 3.7 million (or so they say) downloads. This popularity led to them releasing many official and fully licensed themed comps. However although they've previously explored Afro tropical, psychedelic, jazz and hip-hop themes, they've never touched on funk and soul...until now. They've dug deep here too, providing 15 very different interpretations of these styles including the eerie electro-funk of "Brassa Nova", the chilled out funky hip-hop of "Return Of The Dig-Fu" and the retro analogue shuffle of "Thinkin Back".

Review: Panamian re-edit label Resense serve up more of their party-startin' funk-hop grooves. Mad Doc is up first with 'Turn It Up', which takes a ska organ riff and tops it with chunks of the vocal from Anderson Paak's 'Come Down', while adding a chorus that exhorts you to "turn it up on me, girl". Sono Rhizmo's accompanying '3 Miles Down' revisits the 1978 track of the same name by the Godfather of Rap himself, Gil Scott-Heron. With the former decrying police brutality while the latter laments the condition of the working man, this is re-edit culture with a political conscience for our woke times!

First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Review: Mash-ups, so 2001, right? Well that's quite a while ago now, long enough to listen with fresh ears. One listen to "Shake The Milk" and the era of fusing a pop vocal with another famous instrumental (usually a Wacko Jack one) comes back to life. But you also remember how good ones just ... worked somehow, and here the pulse of Billie Jean sounds perfectly made for Kelis' sultry tones. "Let The Music Take Control" jumps back to the days of breaky hip-house by fusing Busta Rhymes with Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam.

Review: Aroop delivers the third instalment of his "Brazil Breakdown" series with three of his floor-fired reworks to date. "Brilhantina" is a percussion-heavy slice of four-to-the-floor soul with synths straight out of the Detroit playbook. "Quem Vai Querer" ups the ante with a juicy bottom end (think mid 00's Yam Who), feel-good chants and a conga roll so hypnotic you'll be shaking your hips for hours. Finally we hit "O Mestre"; rich in warm reverbed synths and coated with a pristine-polished 80s soul vocal, this will work well on both sides of the night. Honey coated warm up or an emotional finale.

Hold Up (Battle Beat #1) - (1:36) 105 BPM
Review: Old Rummy returns to the Bomb Strikes stable with three more essential party jams. "Work Signs" takes Justin Timberlake back to the early '70s on a Parliament-charged funk train, the epic sample session "Funky Vibrations" flips us back to the early '90s with a focus on the De Le Soul's "Roller Skating Jam". Finally we get lively with a muscular big beat jam that features the distinctive vocal tones of DJ Kool Marva Whitney's evergreen horn hook from "Unwind Yourself". Show us a sign!

Review: Aroop Roy - London based soul boy 'of many dimensions' - has been pretty silent for nearly a year. Perhaps he just went on holiday in some exotic far-flung dimension, but he's back now, all guns blazing. Brazil Breakdown Part 2 features three spicy cuts of feverish retro Latin funk, all boasting irresistible beach party grooves and seductively catchy vocals.

Review: For their latest statement of intent, Bristol's nu-funk troubadours The Allergies have found a new home at Goodgroove. They've consummated the relationship in fine style too, going a whopping four times in the process. "Special People" is a roaring breaky funker that could easily be mid-70s O'Jays. Elsewhere we get daisy age hip hop jam "React", vintage Stax-style stomper "As We Do Our Thing" and guitar-led rap "Feel Alright". We're glad they're back!

Written Letter - (6:38) 103 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Having previously plied his trade on Tonbe's Disco Fruit label, re-editor Disco Funk Spinner transfers to Katakana Edits. Providing the ongoing series' 40th release, the Tel Aviv-based producer delivers a trio of tidy reworks. "Breakfast Jam" is bold and brassy, offering a chunky, hip-wigglin' version of a lesser-celebrated Michael Jackson workout complete with crashing drum breaks, scratching, clipped guitars, bold horns and impassioned, freestyle vocals. "What's Your Name" expertly cuts up David Bowie's "Fame", emphasizing the original's killer disco-funk groove along the way, while standout "Written Letter" extends a sweet soul gem, in the process turning it into a six minute club workout.

Gonna Swing You - (4:09) 127 BPM
Betty Was Here - (3:02) 100 BPM
Review: What with the robots' recent Grammy wins, "Get Lucky" continues to rule and inspire from here to Timbuktu. Now cheeky Frenchmen Minimatic applies the tune to another big musical force right now: electro-swing. In fairness though, "Get Swingy" largely eschews the electro in favour of a more rootsy and authentically jazzy romp through last summer's indestructible anthem. If you're looking for something less obvious try the slammin' soulful house of "Gonna Swing You" or even better, their breaky spaced out cover of Ram Jam's Black Betty.

Morlack - "Cool Monster" - (3:57) 106 BPM
Review: Once again Honkey Phonk's label boss Jayl Funk takes a backseat to let his roster shine, this time on a split-single. First up in Berlin-dwelling Voodoocuts, with a pulsating slice of brass and bass duelling, classic funk. On the proverbial flip is Morlack with a killer 'Bootsy goes hip-hop' electro-boogie workout.

Review: Producers Lebrosk and Totalcult go head to head on this new EP from Cult Music - dropping originals then remixing each others funky breaks. Lebrosk throws down a natty set of breaks on "Dope", with a nagging wah-guitar sample taking the lead along with acapella cuts from Dimples D's "Sucker DJ's" among others. Totalcult slows things down a few notches while incorporating beats from Uptown's classic "Dope On Plastic" on his mix, while his own "Raging Horn" uses the horns from Blood, Sweat and Tears' "Lucretia MacEvil" to devastating, ass-shaking effect. Lebrosk meanwhile adds some filter and speeds it up into a jacking breaks worker on his version.

Take My Hand - (4:04) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Take My Hand (NonVoice version) - (4:03) 116 BPM
Review: Based in Nuremberg, Germany, Jayl Funk is a DJ/producer whose work, in his own words, spans "funk, soul, breakbeat and nu-disco". Here, he teams up with French vocalist Lucy Lune Gillespie on a cut that bridges the gap between neo-soul and 'new old' funk ? la The Dap Kings, Haggis Horns, Lack Of Afro et al. 'Take My Hand' has a summery, midtempo but still uplifting feel and a singalong "take me from the dancefloor to the bandstand," and just begs to be heard live at a festival on a sunny day, while if you're not a fan of vocals there's also a NonVoice Version supplied to suit your needs.

Elsewhere, Pharaoh Monche goes toe-to-toe with Joe Cocker on the ace "Hands Up Woman" while Snoop gets a Zapp rerub on "Pop Lock".
