Review: Juicy Fruit are back with a juicy, fruity number and on this occasion the production credits are going to K-Jah and S Man, both of whom have delivered very different but no less appealing slices of 170 goodness. K-Jah's remix of Wah Gwarn is rolling and vibrant, with a proper old-school feel the drums and some melancholic synths over the top to give it a slick vibe. S Man has taken things in a darker, more penetrative direction with his remix of What We Deal With, which skips along at a serious pace, pulsating and echoing basses fluctuating beneath. Top stuff.
Review: Remix time! Walking Dead switch up the stems with a straight up swap between two of its key protagonists. Eazy takes on D-Nasty's "Kapo" first; maintaining that addictive riff, he dives in with big groaning textures on the bass making it feel like it's being dropped on you from a space centre. D-Nasty returns the favour by taking "Time To Kill" to even more murderous plains than it already existed. Croaky.
Review: Despite sounding like a long lost '80s buddy movie, the Baker Brothers are a veteran live funk and soul collective from London. In anticipation of the band's forthcoming new album "Hear No Evil", ISM have delivered this remix package and it's a winner. "Love's Atonement" is turned into laid back poolside disco funk by 78 Edits, whilst the poppy Jamiroquai-isms of "Hill Climb" are tweaked twice by Yambee, first being into accelerated cosmic funk and secondly dubbed into a fizzy, hi-hat driven headnodder.
Review: Buenos Aires nu-disco label Heartbeat Revolutions dropped the Music Fever EP by Ccccchaves earlier this year. Now it's back in remixed form and sounding as good ever. "Dirty Disco" has been turned into glistening, synth drenched electro-disco by Phunktastike, "Funky Dancefloor" gets twisted into very early '80s Duran Duran (with plenty of killer slap bass) by Julian Sanza and finally the title track gets stretched into an irresistible seven-minute slab of percolating electro-disco-house by Future Feelings.

Review: This is a gorgeous collection of laid back vibes, which is totally soul soothing. The vibe of the EP seamlessly mixes, liquid, jungle and dub into one warm pot of remix loveliness. Standing out as one of our favourites is 'Early Morning (Treeex Remix)' with is soft flutes, piano and its warm, unassuming sub. 'Different' has been remixed twice on this EP and we're really feeling the Rvee cut which feels open, allowing us to hear the subtle pulsations and reoccurring drum crashes. 'Look at the Trees' has a real ethereal feel inviting us to float and observe the world from higher planes.
