SHAKA LOVES YOU: Summer Sessions Vol. 3 Day & Night (2017) Free download

SHAKA LOVES YOU:  Summer Sessions Vol. 3 Day & Night (2017) Free downloadForget Wimbledon, it wouldn’t be summer without the Shaka Loves You summer mix which this year is entitled the Summer Sessions Vol. 3 Day & Night. Is it called that because the boys are at it twenty-four seven? Possibly, if you mean being behind the wheels of steel, for this celebrates the multitude of sets they play – both in the day (represented by funk, soul, hip-hop and reggae)

JIM SHARP: Gangsta Walk 7″ (2017)

JIM SHARP:  Gangsta Walk 7Rating: ★★★★★ Dusty Donuts regular Jim Sharp branches out on his own for new booty seven inch Gangsta Walk and it’s a certified floor filler. The A-side plunders Mark Ronson’s massive dancefloor hip-hop banger Ooh Wee for Nate Dogg and Trife’s vocal bits and adds posthumously-released Nate Dogg ‘pella Gangsta Walk over a beat concocted from the same Boney M loop that Ronson used

PALOV meets A ANGELIDES: He Hecho Mucho Por Ti (2017)

PALOV meets A ANGELIDES: He Hecho Mucho Por TiHe Hecho Mucho Por Ti is the Spanish title of the new ‘Palov meets A Angelides’ mini-album – or as it runs in English, “I’ve Done Plenty Of Things For You,” almost as if in answer to the question, ‘What have the Greeks ever done for us?’ And if that sounds a bit like a Monty Python sketch, consider the absurdity of its having been Greeks who’ve been behind a significant amount of

MORLACK: Beautiful Mistakes (2017)

MORLACK: Beautiful MistakesReports of Morlack’s death have been greatly exaggerated, it seems, since here he is in fine fettle with new LP, Beautiful Mistakes. But where has the former ‘busiest man in breaks’ been and what’s with that title anyway? Well, apparently he’s spent some time hanging out with Trotter in Brazil attending festivals in the middle of the jungle which – admittedly – is a pretty good

THE FUNK FURY: Keep On Lovin’ (2017)

THE FUNK FURY:  Keep On Lovin' Bombstrikes keep up the quality pressure and the label’s recent drift over the last year or so towards a less wobbly breakbeat sound with this drop from Russia’s The Funk Fury – Keep On Lovin’. The title track employs a chipmunk soul vocal over a relaxed mid-tempo beat featuring horns, clavinet and, yes, synth bass while Tribe Of Disco brings

ASIAN HAWK: ‘I Am Asian Hawk’ video (2017)

http://monkeyboxing.com/content/asian-hawk-asian-hawk-2017/Asian Hawk bests his recent Turntable Soul video for DJ City with new one I Am Asian Hawk. Once again, the track features Mr Love providing his impressive USP combo of effortless soul vocals whilst simultaneously demonstrating turntable and controller dexterity – this time on a Guzheng-featuring beat. Also, once again, the video finds our man in the studio working his magic – possibly

CALAGAD 13: Heart Of The City (2017)

CALAGAD 13:  Heart Of The CityThe trouble with all this ridiculously glorious atypical UK summer weather (i.e. it’s hotter than the Bahamas instead of pissing with rain) does rather mean that certain gems have passed without comment this June, so it’s time to set the record straight or at least the Serato console since Calagad 13’s Heart Of The City sadly doesn’t appear in vinyl format. ‘Sadly’, because the

GHOST WRITERZ: They Wanna Know Remixes (2017)

GHOST WRITERZ:  They Wanna Know RemixesThose predisposed to a quality bit of bashment might well have picked up on Ghost Writerz’ recent rather good 7″ They Wanna Know on which toaster Jimmy Screech very solidly laid down the tale of his lifelong involvement in soundsystem culture over a dubby slab of reggae which morphed into a second half of jungle. Those predisposed to a good remix will therefore want to

LACK JEMMON: Lack Jemmon EP (2017)

LACK JEMMON:  Lack Jemmon EPLatest on vinyl 12″ from BBP is the Lack Jemmon EP. No guesses who that’s by. And so it is that the Hungarian pairing deliver a four-tracker for masses – quite literally actually as it kicks off with a remix of a certain ska-influenced pop tune by Simon Cowell puppet, Olly Murs. And if you thought that displayed formidable chutzpah, check the next tune which redefines the very concept of

OLD FLAME: Reignite “The Surefire Collection” (2017)

OLD FLAME:  Reignite Old Flame is up to new tricks with a new mini-album/ EP thingy, eight cuts deep – Reignite “The Surefire Collection.” Well, I say ‘new tricks’; new ‘tracks’ is more accurate for while the material is new, the vibe is is that of reliably old school electro breaks. Cue much in the way of pumping 808s, acid squelches and relentless drums then. Opener, Pasty Suspect, is a highlight pitching, as it
