  4. Opolopo - "Put Your Cap On" (5:43)
Review: Z Records DJ-focused Attack The Dancefloor series reaches its tenth installment via an EP packed full of previously unheard secret weapons. There's naturally plenty to get excited about, from the piano-driven goodtime house grooves of Crackazat's floor-filling "What You're Feeling", to the boogie and jazz-funk inspired space-house of Opolopo's brilliant "Put Your Cap On". Sandwiched in between you'll find two Joey Negro disco workouts: his own extended 'Boogie Dub Extravaganza' version of the Sunburst Band style "Must Be The Music", and a nu-disco-meets-Italo-disco reinvention of "Stomp Your Feet" from Crazy P's Chris Todd under the now familiar Hot Toddy alias.

  2. Just Be Yourself (extended mix) (6:34)
Review: Another royal re-edit by the one and only KON, here we find him going to town on 1974 soul classic from Pat Tandy's The Pretenders. Flipping the arrangement so each section gets a chance to shine (notably the raffish walking bassline and sweeping strings) the lead remix pays full respect to the original while giving it a completely fresh new life. Complete with the extended original for the more purest fans, KON's delivered gold once again.

Cat: RNT 025. Rel: 08 May 17
  1. Kettle America (7:18)
  2. I Knead You (5:47)
  3. Without Rob (5:46)
Review: Razor 'N' Tape's two previous servings of Dimitri From Brooklyn edits (and, yes, they're the work of legendary DJ/producer Dimitri From Paris) were both must-haves, so hopes are naturally high for this third volume. Predictably, the disco-loving Frenchman is on fine form once more, laying down a trio of interpretations that breathe new life into classic jams. While the A-side "Kettle America" (say it phonetically) is something of a cheeky treat - impressively chopping between hard-wired guitar riffs and the original track's bustling disco groove - it's "I Knead You", an end-of-night, lights-up version of a Sylvester cut that smartly emphasizes the song's gospel origins, that really sparkles. "Without Rob", a harmonica-heavy rearrangement of a well-known favourite, completes another essential package.

Review: Over the course of the last decade, dub-soaked musical fusionist Lord Echo has delivered a string of fine releases, including two top-notch albums. Given his fine track record, it's perhaps unsurprising that Soundway has snapped up the Kiwi producer's third full-length excursion, Harmonies. It features contributions from a posse of guest collaborators - Tony Laing of Fat Freddy's Drop and regular studio buddy Mara TK included - and giddily infuses reggae and rocksteady with disco, Afro-soul, Afro-funk, Afro-beat, spiritual jazz and, more surprisingly, techno. It's a hugely vibrant and entertaining set, all told, offering a good balance between dancefloor vibrations and more laidback concoctions.

Review: Over the past five years Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold have laid down all manner of sizzling disco edit grooves that veer into spaced out, cosmic territory, but on this new joint for Blue Velvet they aim for the jugular with an abundance of cheeky licks from familiar sources. "Angel Dust" is set to get all manner of parties going wild with its classic hooks, while "Turn Me On" takes a smoother approach into romantic climes with equally recognisable sounds repurposed for the modern dancefloor. The samples may be easy to spot, but that just makes this record's appeal even more universal.

  4. Button Up (5:34)
  5. Sunset Cruise (5:52)
Review: Without fanfare or fuss, Blend It Records' Black Aroma edits series has become a 'must-check' for disco DJs. There's a good chance that this ninth installment, which once again sees main man Twice at the helm, will also fly off the shelves. The quality threshold remains ridiculously high throughout, from the celebratory disco-funk strut of opener "Get Down Party People", to the starry-eyed, loved-up bliss of downtempo jazz-funk closer "Sunset Cruise". Our favourite is probably the ludicrously sweaty "Button Up" - all elastic slap-bass, layered percussion hits and sweet electric piano chords - but the obscure '80s soul diversion "If You Wanna Dance" (a co-production with crate digger Volcov) pushes it close.

  4. Feet On The Ground (Vas Moody rework) (4:41)
Review: A couple of years back, Rafael Top Secret - a selector known for digging deep for inspiration - delivered a tidy re-edit of "Sekele I Like It", a previously little-known Afro-boogie cut by French artist Robert "Bobby" Helms. Copies of the 1980 album it came from, Lay Down, Girl, now go for serious money, prompting this licensed reissue. Helms' brilliant, horn-totin' original is accompanied by another cut from that album, "Feet On The Ground" - a straight-up disco affair - and two new flipside remixes. Baptman and Betino's "Philly Vibe" mix of "Sekele I Like" is a largely instrumental interpretation that includes some killer electric piano solos, with Vas Moody's "Feet On The Ground" remix taking that track in a tightly-wound dub disco direction.

Review: Brooklyn-based Razor 'N' Tape has some serious pulling-power these days. Having already released material from Dirtytwo, Mr V, Loz Goddard, Kraak & Smaak and Fouk, the New York imprint has managed to score an EP from Mister Saturday Night regular Nebraska. Predictably, it's a party-starting affair from start to finish. Bouncy, horn-heavy disco-house A-side "Drill Deep" - a weighty chunk of unashamed peak-time goodness - leads the way, with beatdown-tempo shuffler "Keep On Keeping On" snapping at its heels. This bubbles along tenderly via swirling disco orchestration, before bursting into life midway through thanks to the introduction of a sublime female vocal. "Instant Pressure", a chunkier, dub-flecked fusion of dewy-eyed soul and low-slung acid bass, is also superb.

  5. Transformation (demo) (4:29)
  6. Love Dance (demo) (5:50)
Review: Famously used in both Married To The Mob and, more poignantly, on Silence Of The Lambs, "Goodbye Horses" was Q Lazzarus's only hit and a mystery has surrounded her ever since. The subject of many reissues and versions, this is the first time it's been included with a selection of demos which add to the song's mystique as we're taken through various late 80s studio twists that teeter on the dynamics proto-house. "Tears Of Fear" and "Transformation" add more twists to Q's tale as we're fired through a cannon of synth wave, alt-boogie and full-on, lighters-out balladry. A fantastic piece of history from Mon Amie right here.

Review: Here's a tasty Record Store Day offering: Red Greg, on Moton, delivering a trio of edits of obscure cuts from his seemingly endless record collection. Ten-minute A-side "Movin" is an undulating disco treat built around a killer bassline, twinkling melodies, punchy orchestration and one hell of a female vocal. On the flip you'll find the jaunty, horn-heavy disco-funk bump of "Desire", a superb rework of a barely known, bilingual gem, and the spiraling Caribbean disco-funk insanity that is peak-time workout/synthesizer wig-out "Trinidad Duke". All three edits have been "secret weapons" for the dusty-fingered DJ for some time, and can now be yours for less than nine English pounds. What's not to like?

Review: Italian duo Hugo Sanchez and Edoardo Cianfanelli have been coming together to throw down all manner of discoid greatness for the likes of Slow Motion Records, and now they're on Malka Tuti with what has the potential to be a massive hit for them. Igino's vocal on the A-side track is undeniably catchy, and it sounds great both in the context of the original and simmering over Severino and Ray Mang's slow-burning gem of a remix. "Bella L'Estate" meanwhile sees the duo head into spooky, cinematic territory to great effect, marking out the kind of off-kilter disco jam to turn heads.

Review: While we'd like to think that SPY Edits is the work of a party-loving CIA field agent, it's actually the work of some experienced producers and re-editors. Both tracks here sound like surefire party-starters; the kind of cuts you sling on the decks to really get the dancers fired up in the closing stages of a particularly sweaty session. On the A-side, the mysterious scalpel fiends deliver a subtly dubbed-out, stripped back deep house interpretation of well-known jazz classic "Fever", wrapping the sultry vocal and famous bassline around a delay-laden groove. On the B-side you'll find "Diamonds", a tastefully tooled-up version of a 1986 fave previously reworked by Todd Terje during his Tangoterje re-edit phase.

Review: On this officially licensed release, Wolf Music regular Medlar gets a chance to rework some of his favourite West End Records tracks. He's done a fine job, too, delivering reworks that suit contemporary dancefloors, while paying due reverence to the superb source material. He begins by rearranging and extending Shirley Lites' most famous moment, the boogie-era brilliance of "Heat You Up (Melt You Down)", before slicing together bits of the vocal and instrumental versions of Love Club's steamy electrofunk slammer "Hot Summer Nights". On the flip, he heads towards more traditional disco territory, first cutting up Kenix's sweet hearted "There's Never Been (No One Like You)", before reaching for the dub effects on a brilliant revision of Sweet Life's "I Get Lifted".

Review: Simone Vescovo, better known as Simoncino, kicks off another venture for a regular haunt of his, Sydney's Thug Records, under the Ron Jason moniker. The invitation of Larry Heard on remix duties should tell you something about this release, and the classic deep house tones that come drifting out of the assembled tracks certainly take their cue from Heard's most tender moments. At each turn the beats feel stiff but soft, giving up as much space as possible to the warming bass lines, chiming keys and ethereal pads, and between the originals and Heard's two remixes there's little to tell between them, which should come as something of a compliment for Vescovo.

Review: Best Italy continues to do a wonderful job of unearthing much-sought after gems and giving them the re-press they deserve. Lily Ann was a quintessential one hit wonder of Italo disco perfection that surfaced in 1984, and "Going Crazy" captures the mood of early 80s dance music perfectly. Adding value to the release beyond the fresh mastering job and high-end modern pressing, as well as the previously released vocal and instrumental we also get treated to a dub mix of "Going Crazy" to give you even more options for dropping this impeccable slice of Italian dance music history.

Review: The number 13 may be unlucky for some, but it appears to have had no effect on the quality of the Secret Squirrels' club-ready disco manipulations. In fact, it could be argued that the series' 13th vinyl missive is amongst its best to date. A-side "Track 1" makes merry with a throbbing, piano-heavy disco number, adding expert chops, loops and house style drums for guaranteed dancefloor pleasure. The temperature is raised further on flipside "Track 2", where punchy horn lines, life-affirming organ solos, undulating electronics and dubbed-out vocal samples ride a beefed-up disco-funk groove. As usual, the original source material and editors responsible are closely guarded secrets, but neither really matters; these are scorching dancefloor jams, and that's all that counts.

Review: The Emperor Machine know a thing or two about deviant discoid devastation, and so it is on this new single, landing loud and proud on the new Vertical Tones label. "We Play Perfect" is a mean-tempered beast loaded with sassy lead lines, while "Dry Down The Middle" sports a chirpier demeanour even if the synths are still reassuringly bonkers. "Got To Warm Ride" is one of the standout cuts with its nagging electronic tinkering snaking around a slow-strutting groove in a most wonderfully unusual of ways. "Leggwork" takes a different tack with some organic percussion in the mix amongst yet more cosmic synthesis.

Lipski kicks things off with the blissfully wavy loops and languid Balearic house grooves of "Magical Luv", before the Silver Rider hits the mark via the softly spun nu-disco goodness of "Madness". On the flip you'll find EP highlight "When She Moves, I'm Moved" by Folamour, a sax-laden shuffle through deep house/disco fusion that sneakily pays tribute to a wedding party favourite, and the head-in-the-clouds deep house bump of Gari Romalis and Lello di Franco's "Luv Game".

Bringing the dance magic out of any record and fuelling our focus on the most essential element of the original's groove, each of these edits is a schooling in version science from the lavish emotions of his "Runaway" to the epic, DJ secret weapon percussion frenzy at the end of "Victorious". Essential.

Review: Seemingly out of nowhere, the Kredits label throws its spangly hat into the disco ring with some self-proclaimed "obscure edits", and it's safe to say that whoever is behind the venture has come up trumps. The A side is a beautifully bubbly jam with a honey-coated vocal delivery, lilting horns and generous helpings of disco-fuelled amorous intention. By way of contrast the B-side injects some serious house boogie into the mix of whichever cult cut the proprietors have unearthed. Whoever they may be, they've served up a sterling party record for the diggers to delight over.

The four-tracks here, which all blend samples from classic recordings with their own drums and musical flourishes, all sound like guaranteed dancefloor winners. Check, for example, the breezy Afro-beat-goes-disco cheeriness of "Nigerian Affair", the wonderfully rich keys and organic deep house bump of "Pajama Stomp", and the riotous, high-octane disco-house loop-funk of "Long Night Ahead". Best of all, though, is opener "Like It Is", a sweet, dewy-eyed, string-drenched soul revision that achieves the perfect balance between dancefloor grunt, and paying due reverence to the German duo's horn-heavy source material.

Be prepared for one well funky and soul infused journey on "Talkin Bout Life" which is perfect to bring in the summer of 2017. Funky elements, a serious horns section and strong vocals hold up this brilliant track. It's a more straight ahead deep house affair on the rather evocative "We Together" and actually its the kind of track you could imagine Derrick May or Dixon playing out; there are definitely elements of 'hi-tech soul' in it. The Brisa remix of Talkin Bout Life" on the flip is a worthy addition also.

Review: When it comes to breathing new life into well-known classics, there are few better than Frenchman-in-London The Reflex. Further proof of this assertion can be found on RWY, the third 12" on the producer's own Revision Records imprint. The title track sees him once again take his scalpel to a track by Michael Jackson, subtly building layering up and extending "Rock With You" (a feat made possible by his ability to get hold of multi-track parts to the material he re-edits). On the flip, he successfully tampers with Lionel Richie's end-of-night classic "All Night Long". Brilliantly, he removes much of the percussion during key vocal passages, which in turn gives subsequent choruses extra dancefloor oomph. Bravo, Sir.

Review: Most Excellent Unlimited's Danny Krivit re-edit series continues with more, erm, "most excellent" material. He begins with the heavy drum breaks, guttural funk guitars, bombastic bass and winding saxophones of "City", smartly emphasizing the densely layered percussion and the original track's various instrumental solos. On the flip you'll find the equally intoxicating and mind-altering "Sun, Sun, Sun", where chanted vocals - in tribute to that big orange ball in the sky - rise over a metronomic synth bassline and an African-influenced rhythm track. It's a chunk of genuine dancefloor voodoo just crying out to be played at sunset and sunrise.

Review: Given his renowned crate-digging credentials, it's little surprise that Floating Points is a big fan of Open Soul, the 1976 debut album from Chicagoan soul/jazz-funk fusionists Tomorrow's People. The album is notoriously hard to find, with original copies occasionally changing hands online for eye-watering sums of money. The thing is, though, it's a terrific album, as this welcome reissue on the producer's Melodies International imprint proves. Spanning a wide range of soul and jazz-funk styles - from the rubbery, sax-laden disco-funk bump of "Let's Get Down With The Beat" and doo-wop influenced "Hurry Up Tomorrow", via the blistering "Hurt Perversion" - it's an inspired collection that stands up to repeat listens. Epic flipside cut "Open Soul" - a 20-mimute trip into space-soul territory - is especially good.

Both "Cosa Rosa" and "Wake Up" ease us in gently with shimmering synths and well-tempered slo-mo grooves but "Nar Nar Nehe" ups the energy with a rolling synth boogie groove that's peppered with layers or synth-tom percussion and dubby echoes. Those in need of a swamp wallow should head for the soaking wet bass of "Och Eye" before we're whisked away in an easterly direction on a vibe made purely of faraway twangs, dubby percussion and yearning atmospheres. Genuinely stunning.

Review: Rewind to 2014: Mr Bird and Greg Blackman released an immaculate LP on BBE. As well received as it was, however, it didn't get the vinyl justice it deserves. Until now... "Where Did The Party Go?", one of the albums many highlights, gets a limited pressing with two beautiful updates from the don Beedle. Really relishing Greg's falsettos and the swooning horns, Ashley seduces us with his slow and low North Street remix then casually undresses us with raw organ and percussion on the stripped back remix. Smouldering.

Review: Soundway Records' recent Doin' It In Lagos compilation did a terrific job shining a light on the lesser-known boogie and disco-funk sound of early '80s Nigeria. That set included Livy Ekezemie's "Holiday Actions", one of the standout cuts from the musician/producer's brilliant - but ludicrously hard to find - 1983 album, Friday Night. This reissue is, then, well timed. The set sees Ekezemie effortlessly join the dots between Clavinet-heavy, Afro-tiged disco-funk, boogie, AOR ballads and, in the case of the brilliant "Dedication", his own tribute to Stevie Wonder classic "Superstition". It's a fine set, all told, and one that's shot through with hard-wired early '80s funk.

Review: Paul 'Mudd' Murphy has form when it comes to putting together must-have vinyl box sets. A few years back, he brought the Originals series of Balearic compilations to a close with a fine box set. Now, to celebrate the 10th birthday of his Claremont 56 label, he's put together another lavishly produced, five-vinyl set, this time made up of brand new or previously unheard material. As you'd expect, highlights come thick and fast, from the dubbed-out quirkiness of Holgar Czukay's "Music To Be Murdered By" and the rubbery electrofunk of Phil Mison's remix of FreshRo's "Pacific State", to the samba-boogie of Jex Opolis's remix of Paraiso, and deep space Balearic bliss of Leo Cecranti's "Andromeda Bound". Throw in killer reworks from Lexx, Bjorn Torske, Ron Trent, Larry Heard, Emperor Machine, and Murphy himself, and you have an essential collection.

Review: For those of a certain age, Gwen McRae's "All This Love That I'm Givin" will always evoke memories of Cassius' French Touch classic "Feeling For You", which sampled it heavily. It remains a killer record in its' own right, though, as this timely reissue proves. Originally released in 1979, it sees McRae at her powerful best, delivering a potent message to an errant lover over a killer, low-slung disco-funk groove. It's one of the tracks that should really be in any discerning funk, soul or disco DJ's collection. Flip for original B-side "Maybe I'll Find Somebody New", a breezier chunk of laidback soul with a slightly Southern lilt. It's good, but pales into insignificance compared to the brilliant 'A' side.

Review: Dark Entries are starting to delve into the Sensation archives and what better way to start than with M&G (AKA Italo don Mirko Galli) "When I Let You Down" is a picture perfect piece of mid 80s synth disco with its massive chorus, filmic theme of barbed hope and insatiable drive, it grabs virgin listeners from the off with a feeling you've known it all along. "Boogie Tonight" ups the ante with a big electroid riff that was years ahead of its time and echoes much of the Norwegian cosmic disco sound. Massive.

Fusing catchy pop-rock workouts with truly madcap moments and glued together by lots and lots of synths, it's little wonder that the Emotional Rescue gang were enamoured with the release and resolved to put together a reissue. There is some really adventurous production going on here, with "Juegos Confusos" being particularly flamboyant and "Uranio Enriquecido" ramping up the oddball keys and splashy effects. Meanwhile the likes of "Sensacion Melancolica" nail that slow and seductive synthwave sound impeccably.

Review: When it comes to muscular, basement-ready slabs of Italo-disco, proto-house and sweaty disco nostalgia, you can't beat Luke Solomon and Nick Maurer's Powerdance series. For slab number four, they've slightly changed the blueprint, delivering a woozy, smile-inducing fusion of baggy vocals, Balearic disco shuffle and blue-eyed soul attitude. The A-side "A Safe & Happy Place (Extended Disco Mix)" is the one for sunshine sets and happy-go-lucky parties, while the flipside "A Safe & Happy Beat" veers back towards their usual mind-altering antics. A breathless dub that utilizes only short snippets of the original, it owes much of its power to sweaty drum machine hits and wild, undulating acid lines.

Review: Despite Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart boasting a discography packed to the rafters with successful forays into all sorts of vintage dancefloor styles, many were still surprised at the brilliance of the first Voilaaa album, On Te L'avait Dit. This follow-up is equally as impressive, and features 13 more trips into classic Afro-disco and tropical disco territory. With Clavinets, punchy horns, live percussion and Afrobeat bass to the fore, Hovart and his many collaborators - including a number of French vocalists with African heritage - variously pay tribute to all sorts of late '70s and early '80s dancefloor fusion sounds. The album includes tons of club-ready excursions, including the righteous "Problems", disco-tastic "Kemtane" and sweaty, high octane "Mbele".

Review: Pascal Rioux's Favorite Recordings hasn't put out a dud record since its inception back in 2006 and, along with introducing us to artists like Onra, the imprint is surely one of the most complete sources of disco and nu-disco available on the market. Their most recent series, AOR Global Sounds, have all the makings of future classics, and this is especially true given the fact that all of its tunes have been lost in the depths of time and greedy Discogs sellers. The third chapter in the series features tunes from between 1976 and 1985, carefully curated by Charles Maurice with the aim of showcasing various disco artists from around the world that have been influenced by the inimitable 'Westcoast' boogie sound. Make no mistake, these tunes are all rare-as-hens-teeth, and you're unlikely to find them pressed up on wax anywhere else. Although each tune features a different artist, from Stratus through to Funky Team or even Brazil's Willy Santana, this is very much an LA kinda thang. An essential comp for anyone serious about their boogie joints...

Finally we're seduced by the Balearic weaves, ripples, twangs and horns of "The EB Theme". A rainbow of vibes from start to finish, this one's hard to put down.

Happily, BBE has decided to make the in-demand B-side, "Rude Movements", available again via a tasty, Record Store Day 7" single. To fit the restricted playing time of the format, Collins has expertly split the original into two parts, subtly re-editing a few parts in the bargain. The results are sublime, with the glistening guitar solos, spacey synths and lo-fi drum machine hits of "Part I" just edging out the hazier "Part II".

Looking towards Persia for inspiration, the OST Version of "Plane Goes East" is an intoxicating, heady brew of chugging, bubbly synth arpeggio lines, cascading oriental melodies and opium den guitars. As cinematic as you'd expect - it feels like the theme tune from a yet-to-be-released, Istanbul-based horror flick - it gets the full synth-driven dub disco treatment on the accompanying Dance Version. The muscular dancefloor thrills continue on the flip, where "Voodoo Your Ex" gleefully joins the dots between thrusting Italo-disco and chant-heavy Turkish boogie.

Review: German electro-pop duo Starcluster first joined forces with iconic former Soft Cell singer Marc Almond way back in 2008. This collaborative debut album, then, has been a long time in the making. It is, though, something of a gem. Produced entirely using vintage "vintage synthesizers and drumcomputers", the presence of Almond's distinctive vocals and lyrics gives it a genuinely authentic, 1980s feel. Put simply, it sounds like a long lost Soft Cell album, which is no bad thing in our book. Almond is in fine form throughout, while Starcluster's backing tracks rise, fall, throb and shimmer in all of the right places.

Review: District of Columbia-based deep house imprint Better Listen has barely put a foot wrong since launching late last year.

Title track "Everlast" opens proceedings via jazzy, jammed-out pino riffs, dewy-eyed electronic flourishes and dusty deep house beats, before "You're Solid as Fuck" re-focuses attention on a chopped-and-looped deep house/jazz-funk fusion. Flip to the B-side for the grandiose orchestration of disco-house pumper "Fool's Gold" and the near-Balearic sweetness of sun-soaked chunky house closer "Babesonite", which comes on like a disco-house enthusiast's tribute to Pepe Bradock's "Deep Burnt".

Review: Fleeting Wax hits its third release with this bout of sinister, sleek disco for the darker dancefloor that finds Bucharest-based duo Valeriu Borcos and Eduard Gabia getting remixed from a strong cast of characters. The ever prolific Khidja is up first, turning "Choose Your Colour Gypsy Dark" into a brooding, almost-rocking affair with an irresistible noirish tint to it. The label heads then get busy with a version that ups the arpeggios in a nod to Italo amidst plenty of dubby FX, before Mehmet Aslan stretches out across the B-side with a more yearning version that lets a little light in on the situation. It's a diverse, potent bag of versions that do credit to the original while saying something new as well.

"Sigint" slithers and writhes with salubrious, warm soapy levels of liquid funk while "Mint" is a slow-motion jog through a field at sunrise, living up to every fresh and lush connotation its title suggests. "Dusky Downtown" adds a little warped mysticism as the bassline seems to fall over the sludgy breaks and the synths melt in the spaces between. To top it all off, Andrei also throws in a chunkier, slightly more upbeat Amberflame remix, too. Safe travels.

On the flip you'll find him channeling the spirit of Don Henley and Donald Fagen on the vocal "Radio" version of "Different Aspirations", before launching into space via the hazy, dubbed-out funk-rock shuffle of "Woodstock".

  1. Leroy Hutson - "Get To This (You’ll Get To Me)" (Alex Attias edit) (6:39)
  2. Michael Gregory Jackson - "Risin’ Up" (Alex Attias edit) (6:19)
Review: For the first installment in the Vision Inc's LillyGood Party series, label founder Alex Attias (previously of Compost Records fame) returns from artistic exile to deliver two re-edits of forgotten gems. On the A-side, he takes his scalpel to Leroy Hutson's "Get To This (You'll Get To Me)", a 1978 chunk of glassy-eyed sweetness that sits somewhere between laidback disco and horn-heavy jazz-funk. Attias' version is fairly reverential, offering a club-friendly version created by extending key passages. There's more jazz-funk flavour on the flip, where Michael Gregory Jackson's 1979 cut "Risin' Up" - all ear catching clarinet motifs, bold pianos and fusion grooves - is stretched out in all the right places.

  3. Funkynoizer (Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco mix) (7:45)
  4. Funkynoizer (DJ Rocca Boogie mix) (6:04)
Review: The fabulous "Funkynoizer" is typical of Daniele Baldelli and DJ Rocca's previous collaborative work, melding as it does spacey, cosmic electronics and alien noises with delay-laden guitar flourishes, funk-fuelled bass and dubbed-out horn lines. It's really rather good and comes accompanied by a trio of remixes. Selvagem embraces the duo's instinctive musical insanity while dragging "Funknoizer" further towards dub disco territory, before Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco lay down a summery, dub-flecked Balearic disco interpretation. DJ Rocca rounds things off with a "Boogie" mix of his own that cannily draws out the original's synth bassline while adding jangling piano riffs seemingly inspired by Cheryl Lynn's "To Be Real".

Review: Helpfully, there's little information about the mysterious artist - or artists - behind this first, four-track missive on the Decent International imprint. Musically, though, there's much to admire - not least the anonymous producer's penchant for combining Ugandan, Liberian and Ghanaian percussion with vintage drum machine hits and humid electronics. While there are some more purist offerings - see the looped indigenous samples, trademark guitars and fluid percussion of "Leaving You", and horn-heavy, vocal rich "When Koaa" - it's the more adventurous offerings that really hit the spot. Both "Uganda Futura 1" and "Uganda Futura 2" are delightfully out-there, pairing original African rhythms with the far-sighted electronics of Motor City techno - it's just a shame they both last no longer than 2 and a half minutes.

Across the five cuts, you'll hear party-starting boogie/hip-hop/house fusion ("We Do It Right"), bouncy, ska-influenced blues-house ("Something Serious"), GAMM style cut-up disco business ("In Your Hands", "Linie 6"), and even a dash of languid, jazz-funk fuelled house dustiness ("Like This"). In other words, it's a fine collection of DJ-friendly workouts.

Review: Suave Parisian scalpel-botherer Dimitri From Paris continues to churn out top notch re-edits, slightly altering his famous production persona from label to label. Here, he delivers a second 12" for Razor 'N' Tape under the Dimitri From Brooklyn alias. Like its' predecessor, it features a couple of stone cold bangers. "Right My File" offers a thunderous, housed-up take on a lesser-known cover version of Dan Hartman's grandiose disco smasher "Relight My Fire" - all vocal breakdowns, big builds and big-lunged sing-along moments. As for "I Want Your Back", it re-casts Dimitri as The Reflex, laying down a version of The Jacksons' "I Want You Back" that sounds like it was done from the multi-track parts. It is, of course, dancefloor dynamite.

"Bustin" meanwhile was originally made for Shing02's short movie of the same name. All slinky and whispering, it's like Samuel L Jackson whispering sweet nothings in your ear over a Faze-O track.

The main slinky hook from Sister Sledge's "He's The Greatest Dancer" may have been subsequently bastardized by Mr Will Jiggy Smith, but Hood's minimal sampling of the same source on the 1991 track "The Greatest Dancer" must have sounded thrilling then. It still does today, remastered and is complemented on the flip by "Dancer", a new Hood jam that is as close to outright disco without losing that trademark Detroit grit as you can get.

Review: Fresh from an acclaimed outing on FACES, Giovanni Damico pops up on Marcel Vogel's inspired Lumberjacks In Hell label. The Italian producer is naturally in fine form here, with A-side "Tanzania" - a breezy, house-friendly rework of what sounds like a Tanzanian boogie cut - being one of the most addictive and life-affirming edits we've heard this month. You'll find more wiggling synthesizer lines on the deliciously dreamy and evocative deep house shuffler "I Need Me", while "Are You Somebody" is a successful exercise in subtly beefing up a low-slung disco-funk number. As if that wasn't enough to set the juices flowing, he completes a brilliant E.P with the jazz-fuelled deep house smokiness of "Humans After All".

Review: With its NYC heartbeat and Paradise Garage relationship, West End's influence disco and soul needs no introduction.

First released in 1987, it's the sound of the label looking back and unwittingly highlighting what would later become key influences, DJ tools and sample sources for the house explosion just months later. Sparque's hypnotic guitars and cosmic nuances on "Let's Go Dancin'" and the sassy synth groove (and iconic vocal) on "Do it To The Music" are just two key examples of how West End foretold the future... Not once with the original releases, but within the context of this compilation, too. Who knows how this will sound in another 30 years time?

We close on two contrasting grooves; an earthy ballad ("Trust Me") and a Whitfield & Strong style funk instrumental ("Dance Awhile"). Cheers Sam!

Next up is a re-splice of a certain track called "I'm An Indian, Too" by Don Armando's 2nd Ave. Rumba Band which we found curious (yet not altogether unpleasant!) and finally we can never get enough of The Jackson 5 right? "The Life Of The Party" is presented here with the right amount of pizazz, yet again displaying Dunn's deft hand for revising classics for modern audiences.

Review: For the second volume in the Tony Allen and Africa 70 Disco Afro Re-Edit series, Africaine 808 and Mexican Sound Institute have been given the tricky task of reworking some suitably epic classics. The 12-minute original version of "Afro-Disco Beat", long considered one of the greatest Afrobeat workouts of all time, proudly stretches out across the A-side, allowing listeners to revel in Allen's extended drum breaks and Africa 70's rousing, horn-heavy instrumentation. Africaine 808 give the track a deliciously spacey, Moog-heavy makeover, combining Allen's playing and Africa 70's horns with vintage drum machine hits and outer-space effects. A brilliant package is completed by Mexican Sound Institute's similarly spacey, intergalactic interpretation of 1979 cut "African Message".

Review: It's been relatively quiet from Trujillo recently, but now the Venezuelan producer casts out a transmission from his Berlin base to let everyone know that all is well and we can get back to the business of smooth grooving. "Everytime I Think Of U" speaks to the Balearic tendencies embedded in the producer's aesthetic, with a reflective vocal swirling amidst dreamy guitar chops and swooping synth warbles of a strictly blissed out nature. Telephones does a sterling job of remixing the original version into a warm and funky deep house jam peppered with organic delights.

Review: Razz-Ma-Tazz's sole single, 1982's sweet, jazz-funk era soul gem "Sugar Sugar Sugar", has long been sought after by collectors. Last year, Italy's Cannonball Records discovered a previously unissued Razz-Ma-Tazz track, recorded during the same period, and have decided to share it with listeners via this one-sided 7". While they've done a pretty good job cleaning up the long-hidden master tapes, the sound remains on the dusty side. The thing is, "On The Disco Floor" is such a fine disco-soul track - think emotional vocals, smooth horns, bustling bass and some frenetic drumming - that you barely notice. This is a slice of history that should be in every soul collector's record box.

Review: If you heard this collaboration between female vocal duo Ekkah and Dam Funk without knowing the identities of those involved, you would automatically assume that it was a little-known '80s soul EP. Both of the original tracks showcased here - "What's Up" and "Space Between Us" - sparkle with authentic 1980s synth-soul flavours, from the use of distinctive TR-808 cowbells and tactile synthesized basslines, to the vibrant colours of producer Dam Funk's colourful chords and melodies. Ekkah's vocals, too, are deliciously evocative and emotion-rich, conjuring images of cruising down Sunset Boulevard in the early hours in a soft-top convertible, killer boogie jams playing on the radio. The silkscreen sleeve is a thing of rare beauty, too.

Review: Under the now familiar Mannmademusic alias, Ian Mann has delivered fine material for Shadeleaf, Lumberjacks In Hell and Glenview. Here he makes his first appearance on fast-rising Bristol disco-house imprint Boogie Cafe. Opener "Sandman" is superb; a kind of colossally beefed up edit that underpins the soulful, party-starting source material with bustling new beats and bass. In contrast, "Get Up (Remix)" is a dustier and woozier, jazz-flecked deep house affair of the sort we'd expect to hear from Detroit producers such as Andres. Flip for the debut of previously unheard producer Jank. "Doin' It" is a chugging, LTJ style edit of a super-sweet soul cut rich in undulating bass and twinkling keys. Fittingly, Mannmademusic provides a jauntier, deep house flavoured remix.

Plunging deep into the realms of kosmiche, Italo and electro, from the energetic major key lift off thrust of "Preternatural Convergence" through to the pulsating droning bass and poignant chords of "Imprint Manifestation" each cut is one way chapter. Gradually getting deeper, slower and more introspective as the trip continues, and climaxing with pneumatic steaming remix by Umberto, this really is a remarkable release from the San Francisco composer.

Review: James Holroyd's Begin project has been responsible for some of the most magical Balearic music of the last seven years. We say last seven years; Let's Talk is actually the first Begin EP since 2014. It gathers together three tracks that sit somewhere between dubbed-out re-edits and original productions. The title track sets the tone, wrapping jazzy guitar solos, becalmed piano motifs and spoken word snippets around an intoxicating, jazz-fuelled downtempo groove. "Aight" sees Horoyd getting busy with delay-laden old school house vocal snippets, woozy chords and a languid broken beat rhythm, while standout flipside "Cut The Paste" is a trippy, pitched-down chug-fest rich in ghostly chords, fuzzy synth stabs, mutilated modem noises and a druggy arpeggio style bassline.

This record does a fantastic job of reaching back to the glory days of low budget 80s production, with the attitude to match the punky finish.

"The People Come Together" meanwhile gets a late 80s boogie kink in its swagger, ramping up the bass and throwing in some powerful chord progressions to get the soul stirring. "Wonderlust" finishes the EP off with a breezy, summer-ready jam for feel-good times in the sun or under the stars.

Review: More quality grooves from Washington DC label specializing in reissuing obscure and unknown 70s and 80s dance music. This time around is Dreamcast who are Davon Bryant in conjunction with Swedish guy Sasac aka King Al. "Liquid Deep" is sexy late night deep funk the way it was always intended and Bryant's smooth as silk vocals are just like... Wow! So with Dreamcast on the vocals and Sasac on the beat, we are hoping there's more things on the way from this trans coastal duo in 2017.

Review: Ever since joining forces on "Josephina's Groove" in 2014, Khotin & Dane have been one of the most consistent sources of pure sonic style on Common Edit. Naturally Common's eleventh dispatch is no exception. Dane takes the lead with an upbeat space jam that's peppered with elements of Italo and dub and a smooth cosmic sheen that's not dissimilar to Metro Area. "Rock Studio", meanwhile, takes us to much more soulful pastures with heavenly swooning harmonies and guitars so shiny they could make Pacqua blush. Not to be slept on.

Review: The development of Aussie Tornado Wallace from a promising deep house producer to a masterful maker of Balearic beats has been a joy to behold. Since first hooking up with Beats In Space and the similarly inclined ESP Institute last year, he's begun to develop a trademark sound that's warm, humid and musically rich. He's still capable of laying down chunky dancefloor rhythms, though, as the hypnotic new age house bumper "Soft Light" - the flipside of this second outing for Lovefingers' acclaimed imprint - so deftly proves. Really, though, it's when he gets more adventurous - such as on the wonderfully evocative Jonny Nash collaboration "Time of Nectar" and decidedly tropical lead cut "Circadia" - that he really comes into his own. Highly recommended.

Review: "Give Me Your Love" was produced by Roy Ayers and James "Jaymz" Bedford in 1981, this digger's delight was the one and only single by American singer Sylvia Striplin. It is an irresistible serving of soulful disco that really captures the spirit of the times. The track has been sampled on numerous occasions, but most famously on the classic track by Junior M.A.F.I.A. (Notorious B.I.G. production) on their song "Get Money" in 1995 and also by Armand Van Helden on "Full Moon" in 2000. On the flip is the sexy and lo-slung "You Can't Turn Me Away" featuring some sexy funk guitar licks and bass beneath Striplin's powerfully seductive vocals.

Review: Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra are in safe hands right here as serial editor and connoisseur Al Kent takes the parts of one of their 2014 album highlights "Vendetta" and revisions them into a hypnotic dancefloor trip. Where the original is loose and prone to steamy Latin string histrionics, Al's edits restrain the emotion a little and let it leaks out much more gradually over an enticing weave of percussion. Whether it's the vocal or dub version, both are guaranteed to take your floor to new places.

On El Sur, MFM founders Tako Reyenga, Abel Nagenast and Jamie Tiller cast their gaze over Bibiloni's work from the more experimental era of his long career (he first released a single in 1967) selecting tracks from a six album run which commenced with the album Una Vida Llarga I Tranquila, originally released in 1984. It was during this time that Bibiloni began to compose with the assistance of tape loops, drum computers and synthesisers and these primitive experiments make for compelling listening across the ten tracks on El Sur.

Review: There's no doubt that Loose Joints' "Is It All Over My Face" is something of a disco classic; arguably, it's one of those records that any discerning disco DJ should have in his or her collection. This reissue features both the popular "Female" and lesser-known "Male" versions - the latter blessed with arguably better percussion and thrillingly eccentric horns but worse vocals - in remastered form. The re-master only serves to highlight the quirkiness and looseness of Arthur Russell and company's playing and Steve D'Aquisto and Russell's deft production. If it's not in your collection, it should be - if only for the celebratory eccentricity of one of disco's baggiest anthems.

"Sanctified" has supposedly been a staple of Midland's recent DJ sets and become a real hit, prompting him to release it on ReGraded... and thank goodness for that! Reenergising Donna Summer's classic "Spring Affair" from 1976 into a pumping, flanged and stuttering dancefloor bomb. On the flip we've got "Watchasay" which is a rolling, disco house chugger, using some of the same samples from Homework's 2011 hit "Whipped Cream" along with some killer bongo drums.

Review: The second instalment in the Tale of Tales series brings with it four more reasons to be cheerful. Dirt Crew regular Felix Leifur steps up first with "Eitt", a lovably loose, dusty and occasionally wonky trip into blazed jazz-house territory. The jazzy mood continues on Toy Tronics duo COEO's rolling deep houser "Clouds", before Moony Me peppers a bustling, organic-sounding groove with sparkling synth refrains and drowsy chords on the thrillingly hazy "Soul Mirage". Sune opts for a far more bustling, chunkier beat pattern on skewed disco-house caper "I'll Be Right Back", which features some superbly cut-up and rearranged vibraphone solos alongside punchy horn samples and a brilliant post-breakdown drop.

Review: Point your thumbs skywards and strap yourselves in: the Rollover DJs have decided to rework a funk-fuelled, piano-heavy 1985 disco-funk treat from everyone's favourite animated frog frolicker/former Beatle. "Sir Paul 1985" is undoubtedly something of a cheery treat and offers a perfect opening to Chopshop's Record Store Day 2017 offering. Boss man George Kelly takes control on the flip, gathering his Brothers in Arms to breathe new life into a well-known chunk of headband sporting, MTV-baiting 1980s stadium rock. The fact that he's managed to do something rather dramatic with such a well-known cut - it's now a dub disco extravaganza with additional sleazy synths - is testament to his production skills.

Here they make the transfer to one of Sleazy McQueen's other imprints, Lovedancing, with some tasty original productions. "Yawumna", featuring Somma Idrisu, effortlessly underpins jangly acoustic guitars and African vocals with a metronomic nu-disco groove, while "Afia", featuring vocalist Azizaa, sounds like an unlikely fusion of Afrobeat and Adonis's "No Way Back". Art of Tones provides an organ-laden, sunshine-soaked Afro-house revision of "Yawumna", while Jacques Renault provides a suitably chunky dub of "Ifa" for those late night moments.

There's a chunky, looped up quality to "Silver Suitcase" with its insistent bass lick and slamming drums, but there's equal space for soul thanks to the string-loaded sample hook. By way of contrast "Lunaire" fires up the acid flare and heads straight into a babbling brook of 303-related goodness. "Amsterdam" rounds the EP off on a stomp, whipping up the kind of bombastic disco drama that would get Studio 54 moving were it in action today.

Here, he delivers his debut album, Biology, and it's every bit as warm, imaginative and luscious as his previous work. Each of the album's seven tracks is something of a gem, from the crystalline, new age house of "Sea World" and Vangelis Katsoulis-inspired ambience of "Out of Wind", to the Italo-influenced dancefloor pulse of "Suzaku" and rush-inducing, synth-heavy brightness of "Can You Really Feel It". It's one of those albums that will brighten up even the dreariest of days, and those sets are arguably few and far between.

Both are subtly done, with Weston teasing out Lindsay's grooves and making more of his deliciously soulful versions, all without adding needless house drums or contemporary production tricks.

The flip's "One Night In A Disco" is a sample-heavy, string-infused floor-melter, whereas "Shelter Me" goes all balearic and feet-up - the perfect lounge cut.

A high chief and Kenyan diplomat who allegedly refuses to discuss his music, he self-released eight albums in the 70s and 80s and these are some of the many highlights. Stretching from the New York-influenced post-punk synth funk of "Good Name" to the most authentic Afro fusion of "Why Go To War", Onyeabor's range not only reflects his clear creative skill, but also the ever-developing international language of music during the fruitful period he was active. Who is William Onyeabor? Press play and find out yourselves...

Review: Following fine outings from Inkswel and Johnny Rock, the good burghers at Oye Records have turned to Uffe Christensen for the latest volume in the occasional Oye Edits series. The Amsterdam-based producer hits the ground running on opener "No Clue", a thrillingly tribal Afro workout that boasts little more than heavy drums and occasional chants. "Strange Brief Thing" is a punchy, horn-heavy rework of a solo-laden disco-funk slammer, while "Remember To Forget" sees him playing around with a Balearic-era, clarinet-laden blue-eyed soul shuffler. Finally, he returns to the world of disco-funk via the rubbery electric bass, razor-sharp guitars and slack-tuned drums of "In Some Other Place". As re-edit releases go, this is one of the hottest we've heard in some time.

This, then, is a more than welcome reissue. The genius of Krivit's scalpel job is that it merely emphasizes the sections of the original that dancefloors want to hear; specifically, the acoustic guitar and organ-heavy groove, killer drum breaks and winding saxophone lines. It's simple but devilishly effective. For those seeking the full vocal experience, the original 1979 12" version is included on the flip.

  1. Body To Body (7:42)
  2. African Love Song (6:43)
Review: Italian singer and songwriter Giampiero Scalamonga had a successful run as a disco hitmaker through the 70s, and his crowning glory was surely the Body To Body LP released in 1979. Now Best Records have turned back the clock to disco's golden hour to reissue the Gepy & Gepy classic on pristine wax. While the A-side title track is a timeless gem on its own, it's the impassioned club burner "African Love Song" that will have the diggers rejoicing. From its days as a staple in Studio 54 it's been a sought after gem, and now it's back in circulation for those that know.

  1. Tonight (vocal version) (6:56)
  2. Tonight (dub version) (5:14)
Review: Classic Italo one-hit mystery, Tony More (or Tony Moore as he's often credited) gave the world this lavish futurist Marzio Benelli-written pop odyssey in 1985 before promptly disappearing. With original pressings fetching over L200, Dark Entries have democratised it for all to enjoy. And there's plenty to enjoy... A restrained by hooky riff, sparse but delicate and vulnerable vocals and a chugging synth groove that cuts with a heavy cinematic feel that's succinctly of its time. Complete with an instrumental for full mix creativity.

Review: And the edits, specials, versions and remixes keep coming... This time we're taken on a predominantly trippy, early morning jaunt as "Snakecharmer" twangs, bangs and twists itself inside out amid layers of proto house psychedelia. Rich Cason & The Galactic Orchestra's 1983 brilliant boogie bash "2001" is given a heavy Hardy extension by almost two minutes, Leon Sylvers outfit Real To Reel's pant-dropping soul funk jam "Love Me Like This" is present in all its sleazy glory while "Flor De Coca" gives us a final Latin sunrise slap. Keep on keeping on...

  1. Stay (8:09)
  2. Venus Requiem (5:57)
Review: **REPRESS ALERT** Chicago's The Nite Owl Diner originally released "Stay" by local heroine The Black Madonna back in 2014 to much fanfare. A wonderful edit geared for some life affirming moments on late night dancefloors that was no doubt honed by the artist's (known to her Dad as Marea Stamper) skills behind the decks for several years at Windy City institution Smart Bar. On the flip there's the even funkier and discofied "Venus Requiem" full of neon-lit synths and cracking Linn drums; there's an odd familiarity throughout as it builds and builds.. and drops right at that moment to set the dancefloor alight again. It's just one of 'those' kind of tracks and here's your chance to snap up another copy of this remastered gem before it flies off the shelf again.

  4. Musically Time (5:34)
Review: Not content with helming the well-regarded Banoffee Pies imprint, Ell Weston has decided to set up a second imprint: the Balearic-inspired Tracy Island. The first artist to step foot on the baking hot sand and head for shade is Mori Ra, an experienced re-editor famed for quirky releases on Macadam Mambo, Forest Jams and Berceuse Heroique. The edits assembled here are undeniably trippy and out-there, with the producer smothering an intoxicating, Moog-laden instrumental with delay on "Wilderness", before heading to Idjut Boys pastures on the wonky, dub-fuelled eccentricity of "Machinally City". On the flip you'll find the trumpet-laden lounge disco sweetness of "Candy Flow" and the tropical quirkiness of "Musically Time".
