SKEEWIFF: Mexican Flyer/ Delta Dawn (Vinyl 45)

SKEEWIFF:  Mexican Flyer/ Delta Dawn (Vinyl 45)The very label they founded now delves deep into Skeewiff’s back catalogue to meet the insatiable demands of the seven inch-buying public. And it turns out they’ve struck double cheeky old gold to boot. Enter, by way of an A-side, the 2001 released 12″ B-side edit of Ken Woodman & His Picadilly Brass’s Mexican Flyer in all its ‘tropical jazz meets garage rock breaks’ glory. Blimey –

MUSCLE SHOALS HORNS: Break Down (Steppin Tones edit) Free download

MUSCLE SHOALS HORNS:  Break Down (Steppin Tones edit) Free downloadApart from playing session horns on a shedload of soul and rock songs between the late sixties and the mid eighties, the Muscle Shoals Horns also liked to drop their own stuff – notably horns-led (obviously), bass-popping disco-era funk like Break Down now edited for your delectation by Steppin Tones. Even more, full-on than their own Born To Get Down, the original Break Down

VARIOUS: Jalapeno Funk Vol 9

VARIOUS: Jalapeno Funk Vol 9 I don’t know about you but there’s almost as many shades of The Italian Job about the retro red, white and blue van on the cover of the Jalapeno Funk Vol. 9 as there are shades of the 70s Bronx. Which makes it the perfect visual metaphor for a twenty-one track compilation of British funk, soul and funky-breaks inspired by the golden era of Stateside funk and soul. Twenty-one?! You were

PROFIT feat. JFB: Booking Hot (SHAKA LOVES YOU remix)(2017)

PROFIT feat. JFB:  Booking Hot (SHAKA LOVES YOU remix)Part two of tonight’s remix frenzy is the Shaka Loves You boys’ take on the final single from emcee PRofit‘s True Colours album – the JFB-featuring Booking Hot. Out go the wah-wah guitar, and electro beat of the original and in come a rather more funky break, horns and a Rhodes melody, the latter of which lends something of a pensive air to proceedings despite the undoubtedly

BASEMENT FREAKS: Tarantino Bass Sample Pack (Black Octopus)(2017)

BASEMENT FREAKS:  Tarantino Bass Sample Pack (Black Octopus)As a blood red sun sets over 2017, what’s this that comes ambling over the horizon to the sound of mournful mariachi trumpets and harshly jangling guitars? Why it’s Basement Freaks’ new sample pack, Tarantino Bass, on which the the Balkan beat bandit provides a posse of sax, trumpet, trombone, guitar, and accordion loops (among other things) influenced by the sound of both Old

SCOUR RECORDS: Freemixed Nuts Vol. 5 (2017) Free download

SCOUR RECORDS:  Freemixed Nuts Vol. 5 (2017) Free downloadHappy late birthday to Scour Records which yesterday turned five and observed the event in the best way the label knows how – by unleashing a big fat compilation of nutty winter goodness. Which is to say they dropped Vol. 5 of their annual Freemixed Nuts comp. weighing in at a bountiful twelve cuts. And that means it’s their biggest one yet – why – that’s one for every day of Christmas!

FREETHINKER FUNK ESSENCE: The Traveler (2017)

Freethinker Funk Essence’s album The Traveler came out – oohh – over a month ago so I’d say it’s probably high time it got shown some love. The German producer has dropped a number of EPs on Mustbeat Records since they snapped him up a couple of years ago and these (like his Timewarp Music releases before that) have demonstrated our man’s penchant for breakbeat tunes frequently
