  2. Fade Away (Fouk remix) (5:46)

  4. EP (Rayka remix) (6:06)
Review: Those who cop digital downloads may already have come across these fine remixes of tracks from Smoove & Turrell's fantastic Stratos Bleu album, as they were released as part of an expansive set of reworks a couple of months ago. It's great that they've finally landed on wax though, because there's some genuine dancefloor gold amongst the four reworks on show. Our picks of the bunch are Ray Mang's sparkling, synth-laden, slightly dubbed-out disco revision of 'Do It', and Ashley Beedle's breezy, life-affirming old-school house take on 'It Ain't Working'. Elsewhere, Rayka wraps thrusting acid lines around bouncy, forthright beats on a surging revision of 'EP', while Fouk impresses with a cheerful piano-house version of 'Fade Away'.

Elgin Towers (Hot Toddy remixes) (12" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: JAL 331V. Rel: 03 Sep 20
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Elgin Towers (Hot Toddy remix) (5:25)
  2. Elgin Towers (4:32)
  3. Elgin Towers (Hot Toddy dub) (7:02)
Review: Jalapeno's main men, so-called Northern Funk proponents and Gateshead mainstays Smoove & Turrell serve up another of their mini classics with "Elgin Towers." It's a busy and bustling track that blends house, disco, funk and soul into one full flavour and high impact tune for the peak of the night. The much more tender and seductive Hot Toddy remix is low slung and funk-fuelled, while the dub is upbeat and rousing but with a little more space in the mix for the vocals to really hit home. This is another fine offering from these UK treasures, then.

Review: Modern day funkateers and stomping soul boys Smoove and Turrell can always be relied upon to deliver the party-starting goods. Even so, new album "Stratos Bleu" - their sixth studio set in total - may well be their strongest and most well-rounded set to date. Interestingly, this time round they've infused their usual breakbeat-driven funk and soul sound with a range of distinctly 1980s musical influences, including audible nods to boogie, electro, early Chicago house, Loose Ends, Soul II Soul and deep synth-pop. As a result, it's a hugely colourful and vibrant set, with Turrell's honeyed voice sounding particularly fresh atop Smoove's more electronic-sounding backing tracks.

I Feel Alive
Cat: JAL 277V. Rel: 21 Jun 18
Funk
  1. I Feel Alive (3:14)
  2. Mr Hyde (4:44)
Review: Anticipation for the northern duo's fifth album Mount Pleasant continues to rise as the Jalapeno funksters drop another cheeky doublet ahead of the release. Two sides, two very distinct vibes: "I Feel Alive" tips a wee nod at their label mates Kraak & Smaak with its fluttering space disco elements and hip-strutting beats while "Mr Hyde" takes us up a notch with a sweaty northern soul twist. Bring on the album.
