MORLACK: The Bodyrock EP (2014)

The Bodyrock EP MorlackHere he is again then, the producer that never sleeps. But with quite what style does Morlack invite us to ‘bodyrock to it’ on an EP with the same name as a 1984 break dancing feature? Let’s just say that you can blame it on the boogie on this cut from forthcoming LP Loose Booty. Relative Dimensions stalwarts Leygo and Kenny Beeper are on remix duty with the former drifting off into

ANALOG SON: Analog Son (2014)

Analog Son LPIt’s funk fusion supergroup time as a motley crew of Denver funk fanatics team up with members of both Soulive and the New Mastersounds (among other assorted other personnel) as Analog Son and give birth to new album named – er – Analog Son. The result of a Kickstarter-funded campaign, the band’s ten-track musical offspring delivers mostly instrumental cuts with nods to the sort of

THE GREEN FUTURE: Electrified Rock (2014)

Electrified Rock Green FutureRating: ★★★★★ Back in the day Italian outfit The Green Future (a.k.a The Green Future Orchestra) covered a load of ‘famous rock n roll’ hits on an LP, perhaps unsurprisingly titled Famous Rock N Roll Hits, which featured dodgy instro hammond covers of things like Rock Around The Clock and Tutti Frutti. In amongst these though was bona fide hammond/horns funk bomb Electrified Rock

TOM SHOWTIME: The Butter Zone EP (2014)

The Butter Zone Tom ShowtimeAccording to to the PR for this, the ‘butter zone’ for ghetto-funky-hip-hop-party-breaks is 105 bpm and Tom Showtime is certainly in that with these four bumping reworks and cutups of hip-hop’s underground, overground, great and good. YZ’s 900 Number lyricism is richly spread atop a supernatural slice of P-Funk, Lyrics Born does ‘that’ ‘there’ to Lauryn Hill, on the warmly melting That’s Them

DILATED PEOPLES: Good As Gone (2014) + video + US/ Europe tour dates

Good As Gone Dilated PeoplesA while back, press releases gave out that the forthcoming Dilated Peoples LP Directors Of Photography was due in 2012. When that didn’t happen, it was all ‘it’ll be out in 2013’. Since that didn’t happen either, the new rumour is that it will be out in 2014. What makes the oft-repeated news more plausible this time is that it’s accompanied by both a single (Good As Gone), a video and a drop date for the

MEN OF NORTH COUNTRY: ‘Game Of Thrones Theme’ Live video (2014)

Game Of Thrones Men Of North CountryIn just the same way that ‘everyone’ only really reads The Scum newspaper ‘for the sport,’ it is widely known that ‘everyone’ watches Game Of Thrones for its richly epic fantasy rather than the high incidence of jutting fantasy breasts and quasi-medieval muff shots. If I didn’t know better though, I’d say some people were getting the horn. You’ll still get the horn if you watch this video –

TOO MANY T’s: 1992 Pt. II (2014) Free download + video

1992 Part 2 Too Many Ts90s rap obsessives Too Many Ts‘ new single finds them revisiting previous single 1992 for Part II thus revisiting a track which itself stylistically revisits 1992. If you follow me. Where Part 1 was all about our lovable skinny white boys rhyming over funky breaks and loud guitars like it was the year of their birth (for their smooth and beardless chops suggest they cannot be much older) Part II

VARIOUS: Carnibal Records 010 (2014)

Carnibal Records 010In the second of today’s ‘Where the fuck have you been?’ moments here’s only the second release this year from Palov and Panama Cardoon’s always trusty Carnibal Records – a label that can be relied upon to deliver something for the dancefloor. Specifically party breaks with a swinging-latin-Carribbean-breakbeat-dancehall vibe. And release 010 is no exception. DJ Inko‘s got a latin-skank

BOOTY FRUIT: Cherry Bombs Vol. 3 (2014)

Cherry Bombs Vol. 3 Booty FruitIt’s been a while since we had any hip-hop/ reggae Cherry Bombs but fear not for the (cherry) bomb bay of Booty Fruit command’s Vol. 3 will shortly be opening right above you. Nynfus Corp are on a grimy dub tip for example and the ever trusty DJ Maars is back (man) to apply to his beat an emcee who’s not a wack man but someone who eats rappers like he’s Pacman. That’ll be Das EFX then

MISTER T: Funk Around The Sun (2014)

Funk Around The Sun Mister TMister T (no, not that one) has been down the breaks-gym pumping hard and come up with twelve tracker Funk Around The Sun for his sins. It’s party breaks in the traditional sense then as he veers from funky beats to swing beats to disco-influenced beats on the journey from one end of this twelve tracker to the other. It’s not dissimilar territory in fact, to that of his curiously
