Review: Munchies anyone? Dusty Donuts add a little smoky soul to proceedings with two cruise control slow-jams. Keni Burke's "Rising To The Top" gets a little twist and extension, adding the smouldering allure of the original, while Rick James' emphatic green homage "Mary Jane" takes a few hits and settles into a warm sedate glowing groove. Ideal sunset jams; Jim Sharp's delivered once again.

Review: More hot-to-trot edit goodness from Dusty Donuts, a seven-inch series aimed firmly at DJs who spin breakbeat-driven funk, soul and disco. These two "re-flips" are the work of Marc Hype and Naughty NMX, two hip-hop loving Berlin veterans who can trace their careers back to the turn of the '90s. On the A-side you'll find "Flamboyant Move", a swirling, string-laden chunk of disco-era soul goodness toughened up with the addition of fat new hip-hop beats, contemporary rap samples and some carefully placed dub delays. They push the envelope further on side B, utilizing string-laden chunks of a soaring disco-soul classic in a loved-up, head-nodding hip-hop workout that should appeal to all those who like their beats served with a big dollop of celebratory, peak-time flavour.
