Dusty Donuts Just A Touch Of Faith / Bonita In My Life Aww yes, ain’t that fresh! Dusty Donuts coming correct with another batch of dope edits that will no doubt be rocking dance floors and accelerating the art of moving butts if you know what we mean. The A side, “Just A Touch Of Faith (Naughty NMX x Marc Hype) gives you the best of that Bob James/ De La/ Slave edits for your ear hole by revisiting Slave’s Just A Touch Of Love and applying the same breakbeat leverage that De La Soul gave to their Slave sample on Keepin’ The Faith. On the flip, NMX, this time in the company of Doc Flex, applies the same process to RAMPs’s Daylight, famously sampled by ATCQ on Bonita Applebum thus continuing their services to DJs everywhere with a perfect set opener or closer.

Cannon & Mirrorball Black Rhythm Rap Cannon & Mirrorball may not be the disco edit scene's answer to moustache-sporting 1970s/80s comedy heroes Cannon and Ball, but they certainly serve up tracks that will put a big goofy smile on your face. Their latest Disco Bits adventure begins via "Black Rhythm Rap", a chunky, hip-hop friendly rework of an obscure, late 1970s disco-rap bomb rich in funky guitar licks, cut-glass strings and party-starting MC flows. On the flip they get even cheekier, placing Loleatta Holloway's incredible "Love Sensation" vocal over a stomping, Blaxploitation-era disco-funk backing track and all manner of familiar soul and funk samples. Purists will no doubt sneer, but they really shouldn't: this is tastefully produced disco heat of the highest order. Disco Bits 7" Pre-Order

SoulBrigada Resense 046 SoulBrigada is back with a new joint, serving two edits of classic funk & soul tunes on a tasty funky 45. Two essential killer cuts not to be missed! The soul hit "Do Your Thang" on the A-side was released by a vocal duo from Florida in the mid seventies. The edit extends the original to the right length and new ryhtmus and percussion tracks give the song the missing power. "Grab Your Thang" on the flipside, is a 1965 killer funk tune from Memphis, which will make every dance floor burn with mad breakbeat, new arrangement and additional samples. Agogo Records 7"
