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?

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.

PECOE: Full Tilt EP (2017)

PECOE:  Full Tilt EP (2017)There’s no end-of-the-year slacking from Oz party-breaks merchant Pecoe who delivers decidedly summery four-tracker the Full Tilt EP to warm-up your life before shit gets really cold. As with his Dance Sucka bump on the summer’s Big Fat Mama Beats Vol. 2 from BBP, he’s clearly got the requisite old school party breaks credentials but isn’t completely trying to deny that he’s living in 2017
