JIMI NEEDLES: Jazz Trippin (2015)

Jazz Trippin Jimi NeedlesOh hello, what’s this then? It’s a throughly modern Jimi (Needles) with his new single Jazz Trippin‘. Shall we swing? Why not I’ll put my car keys in the bo- oh you mean the music, why yes, I’d love that even more – all that ‘slap, slap, slap – oh that’s too hard’ business. Nothing sexual at all, merely a choice bit of electro swing – though if that gets any latterday slap…er, I mean flappers excited

BUDAPEST BURLESQUE: The Gambler EP (2015)

The Gambler EP BUdapest BurlesqueWhat have we here then? Ah yes – Budapest Burlesque – not (in this instance at least) a chorus line of hotties clad in the skimpy lace panties and titty tassels but rather DJ Jutasi and Clarinet player Babi. While I appreciate that in one sense this may be a little disappointing, don’t despair completely since in another, particularly if you like electro swing, this may well have you

COCKNEY NUTJOB: My Baby Don’t (Scour Records Freemix) (2015) Free download

My Baby Don't Cockney NutjobIf you haven’t noticed lately, Scour Records have been busily gliding around planet breaks hoovering up party-starting talent like some sort of ghetto funk Dyson. If you’re one of the lucky ones what happens is, if you’re not already on a label (and in some cases even if you have been) you get sucked in using patented Scour technology and spend the rest of your days making floor-filling tunes whilst

THE WORLDSTYLERS: Adventures With… (2015)

Adventures With The WorldstylersSavages Y Suefo’s alter ego The Worldstylers goes from strength to strength with the arrival of debut LP . Anyone who caught Niles Philips massive remix of Gimme One More last year will know to expect plenty of interesting antics from this Budapest-based breaks outfit and this album is unlikely to disappoint. Every bit as varied as the name The Worldstylers would suggest, Adventures

FOXY CHEEX feat. JEM STONE: Lick The Spoon Remixes Pt. 1 (2015)

Lick The Spoon remixes Foxy Cheex Jem StoneDon’t worry, MB isn’t making a foray into the murky world of the adult movie industry, Foxy Cheeks and Jem Stone are simply the pair behind last year’s swing breaks banger Lick The Spoon. Said track has now been firmly re-licked into new shapes by both breaks/ ghetto funk giants Funkanomics and Rory Hoy. The former opt for some slap bass-powered grinding while the latter

ODJBOX: Penguin (2015)

Penguin OdjboxPenguin is the latest leak from Odjbox‘s Oak EP – his forthcoming ‘KPM Shorts’ drop on EMI’s KPM library music subsidiary. Many will know of KPM as the source of much late sixties/ early seventies funky Hammond-driven instrumentals – however, while both instrumental and funky, Hammonds are noticeably absent. Instead Penguin begins with a flurry of horns and drums before settling into a

SCOUR RECORDS: Freemixed Nuts Vol. 3 (2015) Free download

Freemixed Nuts Vol. 3 Scour RecordsHas Scour Records really been going over two years already? That’s a ‘yes’ then but with this they’ve managed to squeeze a third annual freebie into that time, a not-so-secret winter hoard of banging, warping, grinding, swinging Freemixed Nuts. Vol. 3. But which bass n breaks squirrels have been working overtime? Well, Leo’s employed hammer synths to bassbin-destroying effect on his update of what sounds like some nasty 90s soul

PROLETER: Rookie (2014) Free download

Rookie ProleterRating: ★★★★★ Class work from Proleter here as the Toulouse-based producer drops his somewhat misleadingly entitled new release, Rookie. ‘Somewhat misleadingly entitled’ because this man, clearly, is a highly competent producer and his third EP consists of some of the most beguiling swing-hop it’s ever been the monkey’s pleasure to hear

KITTEN & THE HIP: Don’t Touch The Kitten Remixed EP (2014)

Don't Touch The Kitten Kitten  The HipJailbait/ pervy uncle electro-swing combo (and signings to Skeewiff‘s Pedigree Cuts label) Kitten & The Hip is actually the second coming of Ashley Slater (the Hip), frontman of 90s chart-bothering, Norman Cook-featuring acid-jazzers Freak Power. Turns out Slater isn’t the only one coming given the recent flurry of furiously jealous tabloid masturbation over Kitten’s stripper past and her
