KID PANEL & BLADE: Freak/ Weedee Funk (2017)

Kid Panel & Blade revamp a couple of oldies for 2017 on this new Mustbeat drop. The first is Freak which shares a name with Chic’s most famous cut and includes samples from Sugarhill Gang and Ultramagnetic MC (among others) employing pounding drums that keep it just the big beat side of house and take it back to – oohh at least 1997. Weedee Funk on the other hand features a more

JPRIME: Boom Boom EP (2017)

It’s always worth sparing some time to listen to JPrime, even when (or perhaps especially when) he’s named his latest drop after the catchphrase of Basil Brush. The four tracks on the Boom Boom EP should certainly have you wiggling about like an excitable glove puppet though (thankfully without the aid of a glove puppeteer’s hand) due to plenty of big farty bass, crisp drums and hooks culled

BMD: Nickelodeon (2017)

All the B’s in breaks tonight as it turns out that former Tru Funker BMD‘s got a new breaks single in the offing as well as Badboe. In this case it’s Nickelodeon, an instrumental mix of squelchy 70s guitars and wobbling synth bass over relentless drums. Putting a coin in the remix slot are D.End, who ups the wobble, and neo-big beater Rory Hoy who drops Godzilla-sized drums and goes

BADBOE feat. MC SHURESHOCK: Under The Spell EP (2017)

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

QDUP feat. EVERYMAN: Joyride (2017)

QDup and EVeryman provide a new theme for driving down PCH top down and hands in the air like you just don’t care by way of Joyride. It’s a catchy P-Funk-inspired breaks tune with crisp drums, farty synth bass, EVeryman knocking out the verses and QDup himself on the talkbox for those authentic frequency-bending hooks. Should have your lowrider popping. Comes complete with

KOOL HERTZ: Here Comes The Sun EP (2017)

If you haven’t tuned in to Kool Hertz‘s frequency yet, now might be a good time as his four-track Here Comes The Son EP is out and very loud. In time-honoured party breaks fashion, old and not-so-old samples are cut up and looped, given the funky drums treatment and a bass jolt. The first two tracks cater to the kids with the title track’s wobbled-up treatment sure to work up a sweat as

KRAFTY KUTS & DYNAMITE MC feat. CHALI 2Na: It Ain’t My Fault (2017)

Rating: ★★★★★ If news of a third studio LP from Krafty Kuts fluffed your nuts at the end of last year, this new single featuring both Dynamite MC and Jurassic 5’s Chali 2Na is going to make you blow your load by setting the bar massively high for dancefloor boom-bap in 2017. It Ain’t My Fault bangs and let that be the last word on the subject. Oh – except to say that Krafty’s ‘Hands High’ 2017 tour featuring both emcees has been well under

GROOVY JOY & SEBASTIAN ROSER: Mola Gramola (2017)

The Beatnik City label dips its toe into electro-swing waters with Groovy Joy & Sebastian Roser and finds itself decadently yanked into a pool along with Lavern Baker and Billie Holliday. These two ladies who provide the source material from the fifties and thirties respectively for the two booties, Fe Fo Fu and Meeny Mo contained on Mola Gramola find themselves, like us, lured into an

PHIBES: Raw 2 The Floor EP + ‘Ain’t No Thing’ A Glitch Swing Collection (2017)

Apparently not ones to drop merely one thing when they can be releasing a three track EP on legendary breaks label Bomb Strikes at the same time as putting out a self-released ten track album on their bandcamp, the Phibes boys have done precisely that this February. The Raw 2 The Floor EP finds the pair open with the heavy artillery of the title track upon which skeletal beats vie with

JON KENNEDY: Ha! EP (2017)

Jon Kennedy is back with full length album Ha! in the summer and here’s the Ha! EP by way of a teaser. Clearly not a man for long release names these days, he makes up for the brevity of the title with the number of remixes on this drop – a mighty eight no less, plus bonus exclusive cut Lord Tarries feat. Coreysan on vocal duties. Of course with that many remixes you can cover a lot of
