No need to look further if you’re in need of heavyweight funky breaks with original raps on top this month since Badboe‘s got you covered. It’s hard to imagine that Under The Spell will fail to cast its enchantment across dancefloors, turning as it does on a funky sample heavily buried in crunchy drums and synth fx with Oz rapper MC Shureshock busting bars on the mic

BEATNIK CITY: Northern Beats Vol. 2 (2016)

northern-beats-vol-1-beatnik-cityRating: ★★★★★ Things are looking musically bright already before we’ve even got to 2017 – at least on the booty edits front. Why? Because Beatnik City have lined up another scorching outing of sixties and seventies soul-inspired booty beats. One track deeper than Volume 1, Northern Beats Vol. 2 effortlessly maintains the high standards of its as predecessor as a go-to source of dancefloor

B-SIDE vs BADBOE: Party Bangers Vol. 2 (2016)

party-bangers-vol-2-b-side-badboeB-Side and Badboe on the same drop? Now there’s a face-off to conjure with as two of the funkiest ghetto funkers go head-to-head for the sequel to B-Side’s Party Bangers Vol. 1 from last year with Party Bangers Vol. 2. Also great timing with the release date – why it’s practically begging to soundtrack Guy Fawkes Night parties! But what is the nature of the four ‘bangers’ hereon? Well

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Paradise Breaks Vol. IV (2016)

Paradise Breaks Vol IV BBPImagine if you will, a tropical island consisting of nothing more than a conveniently dancefloor-sized clearing and a couple of palm trees. Floating above cloud level at sunset. Oh yeah – and the conical under-surface of said island reveals the entire structure to be nothing less than a giant speaker. Someone clearly has, for this is the cover of the latest compilation of party breakbeat glory in the

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Badass Funk EP (2016)

Badass Funk EP Breakbeat Paradise RecordingsRating: ★★★★★ Blimey. Hold the floor. When a label like Breakbeat Paradise celebrates ten years in the business you know you can expect some heavyweight party breaks action and with a name like Badass Funk EP – you know that shit is going to be stanker than JB’s jock strap. Don’t be expecting any wobble though because part of this one’s charm is that in celebrating a label

BADBOE: Ghetto Funk Testament (2015)

Ghetto Funk Testament BadboeIt seems like it’s been ages since a solo original Badboe release – let me see now, that would have been his Pump Up The Funk LP in…2012. But that was three years ago! Good lord! It really has been ages since a solo original Badboe release. Fear not though, this scene legend is back with a vengeance putting the fun back into ghetto funk in a testament that is tantamount to a dancefloor

BEATNIK CITY: The Beat Kicks Vol. 2 (2015)

The Beat Kicks Vol 2 Beatnik CityRating: ★★★★★ I thought it was high time for more big beat licks from The Beat Kicks booty series on Beatnik City – and here it is – with all the swagger of its predecessor. Vol. 2 weighs in at one track deeper but the game is the same – namely pedal-to-the-metal, big beat versions of sixties classics. Some uptempo library music with little added DWYCK sir? Try Fab Samperi and Skeewiff. Re-

BADBOE: ‘The Bullet Jam’ (2014) Free download + video

The Bullet Jam BadboeIt’s hip-hop doo-wop time as Badboe delivers booty mash The Bullet Jam. Basically, Pete Wingfield’s tongue-in-cheek 50s pastiche Eighteen With A Bullet and Missy Elliott’s verse on the Damizza remix of Pariah Carey’s godawful I Still Believe collide over a break on this to create a mood-lightening number, that if not exactly seasonal, at least has a warm glow about it. Not to
