MORLACK: Ghetto Disco Vol. 2 (2017)

MORLACK:  Ghetto Disco Vol. 2 It seems like barely a minute since Morongroover and Mr Bristow popped the cherry of a new Breakbeat Paradise series – Ghetto Disco – and now here’s Morlack with Ghetto Disco Vol. 2. Being Morlack of course, he’s not only gone one track deeper than Vol. 1 (taking this to five tracks) but his ‘ghetto’ take on disco benefits from his magpie-like approach to sampling. Take in your

MJ:  Thriller The Funk of 40 000 Years (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM Edit)(2017) Free downloadHello – pictures of fruity young ladies with tattoos? You can tell this is a Rocknrolla Soundsystem edit before you hear or read anything about it – even if the hottie in question is all dolled-up like Baron Samedi.

THE ALLERGIES:  Dig Jalapeno (Album)(2017) + 'Blast Off' remix premiereEverybody knows deejay-producers love nothing better than getting the keys to a record company’s back catalogue so one can only imagine the pants-wetting excitement Bristol duo The Allergies must have experienced when they recently gained access to Jalapeno’s vaults. Of course, having penetrated the inner sanctum, there was nothing left to do but have had a right old rummage. The

MAIDM: Tun Up Di Heat (Party Banger) b/w B-Boy Shit (10″ Vinyl)(2017)

MAIDM: Tun Up Di Heat (Party Banger) (2017)Rating: ★★★★★ Stand by for the dopest Brit-hop dancefloor cut you’ve heard since Roots Manuva’s Witness. Cue splutterings, guffaws and stroking of exaggeratedly huge chins all round at such a grandiose claim, of course. But the thing is, producer and emcee on Tun Up Di Heat (Party Banger) are UK legends Aim and Mikey D.O.N respectively, known collectively here as MAIDM

DJ PNUTZ: Bee-Sides (2017)Fresh – in both the primary and hip-hop senses of the word – from her recent 16 Psyche album, DJ Pnutz drops a brace of recording session extras that didn’t make the final cut in the shape of this Bee-Sides single. And about this, it would be remiss of the monkey not to create some buzz (thank you, I’m here all week) since the track Bee-Side is an efficient slice of heavy Hammond-tinged

MINED & FORREST: There It Is EP (2017)

MINED & FORREST:  There It Is EP Mined & Forrest from Munich and Cologne-based collective Obba Select forge a musical alliance with their There It Is EP on which they provide their vision for twenty-first century booty breaks.

KRAFTY KUTS: Back To The Flow EP (2017)

KRAFTY KUTS:  Back To The Flow EPAfter a brace of funky hip-hop classics earlier this the year – one of which (It Ain’t My Fault) featured on his genre-spanning All 4Corners LP, Krafty Kuts gets Back To The Flow to show the yout’ how to do the wobble on this new two-tracker. The title track opens with wah-wah so squelchy you could give it a right old squeeze and still have moisture to wash your car and your
