Marc Roberts ‘Marc Roberts Edits’ (MOTON RECORDS INC)

Londons longest operating Edits label, the Dave Jarvis and Diesel managed Moton Records Inc imprint delivers a stunner by Marc Roberts, who is looking back on a career of more than 25 years in the business, reflecting on a wide range of influences and his love for all things House, Techno, Jazz, Disco, and Afro. He has played plenty of great big shows all over the world and now digs deep in his Soul, Funk and Disco collection to serve his favourite edits.

Out soon on vinyl, Marc serves up four Bintang fuelled revamps, effortlessly gravitating from low-slung Balearica to hi-octane funk with a dash of Brazilian disco and pop thrown in for good measure. Marc Roberts slices and splices four beautiful cuts that that fit perfectly into the highly collectable and off-centre Moton Records universe.

My personal pick must be the extremely funky, yet laid back ‘Maia Amor’, a track you can see yourself lying by the pool sipping a nice cocktail. In other words: Summer can come!
