It's been an impressive debut year from Australian producer Greg Packer, whose re-edits and remixes under the Dr Packer alias have won him a legion of fans around the world. Here, he makes his Hotbox Boogie debut with a quartet of floor-friendly, house-focused reworks of disco and boogie classics. David Joseph's Paradise Garage classic "You Can't Hide You Love" gets a thickset, 21st century makeover on "Can't Hide", while a familiar talkbox-boasting electroboogie cut gets straightened out and toughened up on "Jam Right". Best of all, though, is "I Love Sunshine", a singalong deep house take on Maze's "Joy & Pain" which utilises elements from both the original and live versions of the track.
