those of you in the know would have realised by now we may or may not have ties with the UK’s leading re-edit label Midnight Riot Records out of London.

Due to this we have been making quite a few new friends, and after bad Barbies killer little mix her work husband Evil Smarty has stepped up to the plate to give us this gem of a compilation carefully tied together. we strongly recommend a listen.

About the man in his own words:

I started collecting records and djing 19 years ago. I have played in many different towns and cites in the uk. Played to thousands in superclubs and to only a few in tiny dives. But have always been driven to see if i can make people dance. Over the years i have tinkered with music production. But in the last couple of years i have been enjoying the art or re-editing. Having my first release on the Get Down Edits Family ep, which reached number 1 in the Juno Disco charts and went on to get a vinyl release. Then releasing my first ep. Smart Edits Ep on DiscoDat. In recent times i have teamed up with my good friend Bad Barbie, who has a radio show on Guildford’s Kane FM. We have teamed up to do gigs in London and Readings Milk Bar. We have also been teaming up in the studio. She is quite a task master, but we have been getting good results. Our first ep being released on FKR and our second Disco Reggae influenced ep, The Disco Seen being released on Midnight Riot.

here is the mix peeps….enjoy!

and a few little releases:

Review: Guildford-based Bad Barbie and Evil Smarty first joined forces in the autumn of 2014, releasing an EP of sleazy disco and funk re-edits for French Kiss Recordings. Here they join Yam Who’s Midnight Riot imprint, delivering a quartet of disco-reggae re-edits drenched in dub delay, spiralling special effects and subtle additional percussion. Particularly potent is the stretched out, dubbed-out “Get Enough”, an excellent rework of a classic reggae cover of Michael Jackson, while “My Bell” layers Anita Ward’s famous vocal over a nu-disco tinged dub house backing. The package also includes a future summer sing-along – a tasty revision of a reggae version of Chic’s “I Want Your Love”.

Review: Southampton’s Evil Smarty has been collaborating with the likes of Bad Barbie recently, but here he’s doing his own thing. He’s been busy too, chopping up five choice cuts, highlights being the mantra-like 80s funk loops of “The One”, the rough and raunchy disco pumper “Hotel” and the Gino Soccio-borrowing sultry grind of “Dancer”.

Review: Guilford’s Bad Barbie is the self-proclaimed “first lady of nu-disco,” whose sensual, saucy re-edits have seduced many fans including likes of Greg Wilson. Here she teams up with Evil Smarty for the Don’t EP featuring four disco sizzlers – the warm and fuzzy ’70s funk of “”Don’t”, the laid back strings and wah-wah jam, “Easy”, the retro boudoir grind of “Love Me” and finally their celebrated rework of a Michael Jackson track, now re-titled “I Can’t Get Enough Acid”. Bad and evil…in the best possible way!

Review: Not to be confused with the techno-minded Dutch label of the same name, this Deep Sense is based out of Mexico, they have a penchant for the funkier side of the dance and the cheekier side of edit culture. They proved it on their inaugural voyage in November 2014, and they’re proving it once again right here… Kicking off with the sax-massaging jack-jam “The Road To Kalakuta” the whole album is an instant party full of sassy sonic surprises. Highlights include the dusty vinyl crackles and heaving harmonics of Rafael Fernandez’s “Nothing’s Changed”, the epic synth-slapping cosmicity of Funk My Jesus “24K”, the classic funk guitar squeezes of Chuggin Edits “We Got The Funk”. And that’s just a handful of party peals to be harvested from this 16-track heavy album. Bon voyage indeed!

Review: Dealing strictly in extended collections, Funk Fusion continues its extensive work into 2015 with a 22-track compendium of killer edits, bootlegs and reversions. With an emphasis on fine-tuned, low-swung party jams; highlights include the subtle acid treatment of En Vogue (“Get It”), silky, synth-slapping disco boogie (“Mistery Island”), badass blue grass (“Bluesy Bounce”), Chic-style Public Enemy subversion (“Funky Enemy Number One”) and smoke-stacked skank science (“Method Man”). Fusion by name, funky by nature: no party should be without this collection.
