SCREECHY DAN & BLUNTSKULL:  Keep Doin It The new one from Brooklyn Dancehall veteran Screechy Dan finds him hooking up with producer and known 90s reggae-boom-bap fiend Bluntskull so it’s no surprise that Keep Doin It should strip things back to the time-honoured recipe of the kick, the snare and the double bass all at around a 100bpm tempo.

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Big Fat Mama Beats 2 (2016)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Big Fat Mama Beats 2BBP’s latest comp. is Big Fat Mama Beats 2 – a second and even larger helping (ten tracks rather than seven) to follow-up last year’s first volume.

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
