Vol. 1
(01) Bring Me There
(02) Wsoop Wsoop
(03) Whatever You Do
(04) Fightin' for Nothing

Re-edit maestro and disco/house producer Tonbe dons the lesser-used Loshmi alias for this four-tracker on his Disco Fruit imprint. This time out, he's exploring a P-funk/electrofunk flex, delivering Serious Edits that subtly toughen up and rework a quartet of little-known '80s jams. There's a delightfully celebratory feel about opener "Bring Me There", whose jaunty horns, party atmos and synth squiggles are backed by a superbly rubbery low-end groove. There's more urgent slap bass action to be found on the baggier "Fighting For Nothing", while "Wsoop Wsoop" and "Whatever You Do" both deliver heavy, floor-friendly P-funk workouts. In other words, Tonbe delivers all killers, no fillers.

Vol. 2
(01) Disco Chola
(02) Music Forever
(03) Holiday in Abroad
(04) The Way I Like It

It's a lucky week for Tonbe fans because here, under his Loshmi alias, we have his second EP in the last seven days. "Serious Edits Vol 2" is a different kettle of fish to Cactus Jack altogether. Instead of the housey funk of the latter, it's all about vintage party disco. Highlights include "Disco Chola", which sounds like a long lost Frank Farian Euro gem, "Music Forever" - a Paradise Garage-style muscular retro funk jam and the obvious but good "The Way I Like It".

Vol. 3
(01) It's Not Enough
(02) Few More Steps
(03) Funky Stroke
(04) Jump All Night
(05) Love Philosophy
(06) Trouble Man
(07) Disco Chola 2
(08) Someone Like You

Prolific disco-house dude Tonbe is back under his Loshi moniker for his biggest Serious Edits installment yet on his Disco Fruit label. There's a whopping eight new scalpel jobs this time and it's all about the glorious sound stardust and neon sprinkled late 70s American dance floors. Highlights include the liquid silk bass of the Jacksons-esque "Few More Steps", the sleazy late night block-rocker "Funky Stroke" and the bewildering spacey strings of "Trouble Man".

Vol. 4
(01) Real Love
(02) Be My Love
(03) Don't Play With Me
(04) Depends on You
(05) Wishes
(06) Sad Future

Serbian disco/house type Tonbe seems to reserve the Loshmi alter-ego for some of his finest reworks; killer edits of often obscure or overlooked material that shows due reverence to the source material. That's certainly the case here, as he works his way through a variety of styles over the course of six suitably hot edits. So, he treats us to some soaring '80s soul revivalism ("Real Love"), jaunty but tight, piano-laden electrofunk ("Be My Love"), surging, high-octane, disco-funk (the string laden madness that is "Depends On You"), and even a dash of punchy boogie-rap (the brilliant "Sad Future", which comes complete with an excellent spoken vocal and some terrifically sleazy sax solos).

Vol. 5
(01) Evil Girls
(02) George the Man
(03) Goodbye
(04) Her Shine
(05) I Wanna Be Ready
(06) Secret Game
(07) This Is the Night

Tonbe is keeping himself busy. This fifth volume in the Serious Edits series, credited to his alternative Loshmi alias, comes hot on the heels of the fourth. As usual, it's an expansive collection, delivering tidily put together reworks that get the right balance between the original material and the needs of contemporary dancefloors. Kicking off with the fluid disco-funk of "Evil Girls", the Serbian producer variously touches on swinging, blue-eyed soul ("George The Man"), hot-to-trot disco hustlers ("Goodbye", "Her Shine"), Solar Records style '80s vocal disco ("I Wanna Be Ready"), and filter-heavy versions of radio-friendly disco anthems ("This Is The Night"). Best of all, though, is "Secret Game", a breathy, sleazy exercise in Rhodes-laden disco sweatiness.
