Editor’s Kutz returns in 2016 with the seventh installment of it’s highly sought-after and extremely high-quality edit series. Assembling an all-star cast of heavy hitters and new-comers, label founder, Vinyladdicted, drops in first with his looped out, disco-house burner, “Shining Bright.” Chunky guitar riffs and thick bass grooves loop to perfection before plunging into a lovely, yacht-rock vocal chorus that’s sure to light up any disco loving dance floor. Dan Johnson displays his skills on the A2 with “Love Affair,” a beefed up take on the classic Jimmy Ross anthem while Get Down Edits and Osmose take over the B-side for some groovy beatdown sounds. GDE do a lovely job reworking a jazz-funk cover of Bobby Womack’s “Stop On By,” while the Smokecloud boss-man lays down the heavy funk on “Get Ready.”

Take heed, disco fiends: THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

Smokecloud Records rounds out the year with a syrupy 7″ from label founder and boss-man, Osmose. The Athens, GA funkateer and vinyl purest crafts two, low slung numbers aimed less at the dance floor and more at the bedroom. “Forgotten Love” is a shimmering, Balearic tinged foray between the sheets that is sweet and soulful. A-side, “Time Is Now” has a slightly amped tempo and relies on a cut-up, 80’s inspired funk gem complete with layers of latin percussion and slick sax riffs.

A double-dose of sleaze for you here today as the lads at Sleazy Beats Black Ops bless the masses with a surprise, 7″ outing with label regular, Frank Booker. This smooth little disc opens up the biznezz with “Sugar,” an ultra-funky chop that features a rubbery bassline and roller-rink bounce straight out of 1976. The B-side finds some classic sample material from Shriekback given the Booker treatment with psychedelic dubs and shimmering synths… a perfect homage to the original while adding a unique and unmistakeable stamp from one of the best Kiwi’s in the game.

Bit late to the game on this one, but better late than never, no? Bristolian, Admin, has been on a bit of a roll for me and rounds out his year with an exceptional outing on the always impressive and highly collectable, Sleazy Beats Black Ops. His “Super Lover EP” is the stuff that wet dreams are made of: it’s slinky, sexy and above all, hazy… like a distant memory of a one night stand.

Opening cut, “Have A Nice Day” is a groovy little number with with a cooing vocal riff and layers of latin percussion…the filter rides are particularly tasty on this one. Next up, “Sugar Loaf” goes deep with chirpy trumpet stabs and soft rhodes melodies while the close out, “Super Lover” treads similar ground as “Have A Nice Day,” but is so irresistible, we’ll just have to let him slide on that one.

This vinyl only release is just about sold out at every major retailer, you’re best bet is to hunt Discogs for a copy HERE.
