STEPPIN’ TONES: Lean With An Uppercut (2017) Free download

Blimey – a mash-up! Remember them? Steppin’ Tones certainly does and on this he splices the sixties-ish guitar-fuzz riffs of Pop Levi’s Pick Me Up Uppercut with the crunk-flows of snap-rappers Dem Franchize Boyz’ Lean Wit It to create Lean With An Uppercut. See what he did with the name there? In the process, he gives the Pop Levi

JACK & JOINTZ: Beaming Jointly With Delight (Remixes)(2017)

JACK & JOINTZ:  Beaming Jointly With Delight (Remixes)New from the Fatherland’s ChinChin label is this drop from Jack & Jointz who must be beaming with delight at the idea of getting remixes of four tracks off last year’s debut LP – er – Beaming Jointly With Delight, three of which come from the likes of Diesler, Ursula 1000 and Club Des Belugas. This crew of reprobates are respectively jazz-discoing with delight, electro-boogie-ing with

JOHNNYPLUSE & THE STORMTROOPERS OF LOVE: Talking About The! (2017)

JOHNNYPLUSE & THE STORMTROOPERS OF LOVE:  Talking About The!Not an outfit with a reputation for restraint, Johnnypluse & The Stormtroopers Of Love nevertheless deliver perhaps their most restrained track ever with Talking About The! and quite a pleasing affair it is too. Play this out with its vintage vocal motifs of ‘uhh,’ and ‘now, now baby,’ a lo-fi skanking breakbeat plus the odd dancehall shoutout like, “Now my selectah!” and it’ll be free

SKEEWIFF: Skeewiff In Wonderland (2017)

Skeewiff In WonderlandRating: ★★★★★ Skeewiff were beginning to get very tired of listening to boring old breakbeats, and of having nothing to do. Once or twice they had peeped other people’s steez but it was all excessively conventional, ‘and what is the use of a breakbeat track,’ they thought, ‘if it doesn’t make you say, ‘what the bloody hell are these two on?’ They were considering in their own minds whether

REE KEEN: Makeeni (2017)

Fresh from some recent electro-swinging with the likes of Groovy Joy & Sebastian Roser, the Beatnik City label gets straight back to what it does best – dope sixties-themed party breakbeat numbers. And it does so with the aid of a man who never needs any encouragement – Ree Keen. Well – it’s in his name isn’t it? Talking of names, this release goes by Makeeni – no – not the

TURNTILL & MERLIN feat. DOPPIA ERRE & SKY 189: Break A Day (2017)

Rating: ★★★★★ Looks like it’s not just The Allergies and Andy Cooper who’ve got Get Down fever in the last few weeks – for here is the new one from Chosen Few crew members Turntill & Merlin featuring Doppia Erre and Sky 189Break A Day. Alright, so The Get Down is set in 1978 and Break A Day lyrically eulogises 1989 but there’s more than a little block party feel to this drop – on

VARIOUS: Lime Sorbet VI (Selected by QUINCY JOINTZ)(2017)

Has it really been two years since the last Lime Sorbet? So it would seem, for it was indeed 2015 when volume V came out. Still, that means compiler Quincy Jointz has had plenty of time to scour the breakosphere for the fourteen zesty cuts featured on this volume. As previously, our man takes an all-encompassing approach to the concept of the breakbeat compilation from the

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
