MORLACK: Beautiful Mistakes (2017)

MORLACK: Beautiful MistakesReports of Morlack’s death have been greatly exaggerated, it seems, since here he is in fine fettle with new LP, Beautiful Mistakes. But where has the former ‘busiest man in breaks’ been and what’s with that title anyway? Well, apparently he’s spent some time hanging out with Trotter in Brazil attending festivals in the middle of the jungle which – admittedly – is a pretty good

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Paradise Breaks Vol. IV (2016)

Paradise Breaks Vol IV BBPImagine if you will, a tropical island consisting of nothing more than a conveniently dancefloor-sized clearing and a couple of palm trees. Floating above cloud level at sunset. Oh yeah – and the conical under-surface of said island reveals the entire structure to be nothing less than a giant speaker. Someone clearly has, for this is the cover of the latest compilation of party breakbeat glory in the

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. IV (2016)

Good To Go Go Vol IV MorlackThere surely can’t be a man outside of Washington DC doing more to propagate a global love of DC go-go music than Morlack. His devotion to this regional Stateside blend of 70s funk and early hip-hop has been a massive influence on much of his work and is the prime focus of his Good To Go Go series which, with the arrival of this, is now on Vol. IV. Of course Morlack is a fully twenty-first century

MORLACK: Party Non-Stop (2016)

Party Non-Stop MorlackWho’s the man with the mostest when it comes to late 70s/ early 80s funk-meets-breaks type beats? Morlack? You’re damn right! Yep – it’s him – back once again like the renegade master with the first Funk Blasters drop in a while. And just in case you’re worried he’s branched out into trap or developed a love of Finnish grime – let me put your mind at rest. What you’re getting is three

BEASTIE BOYS: So What’cha Want (MORLACK 2016 Remake)

So Whatch'a Want Morlack RemakeWhat to do now the man has bought out Soundcloud and Soundcloud is increasingly biting the dj remix culture hand that fed it like some sort of senile Alsatian? Bandcamp? Great setup but upload it lossless or forget it. Hearthis? It’s free, it’s got that early SC vibe – might be the way forward. Morlack‘s got a different answer that allows you to keep all your shit on soundcloud with

MORLACK: Hypersonic Freak (2015)

Hypersonic MorlackOk we’ve all been there, over done it on the mince pies and the turkey. And the alcohol. And the dvd boxsets. And the family. Er – so anyway – now it’s time to get back into it in the run-up to the year’s most massive celebration. And running towards this like a hypersonic freak is Morlack – almost as if he’s only recently looked at his calendar and realised, ‘Shit!’ I haven’t had at least twenty

Morlack. Timewrap ensures good vibrations when he incorporates a bit of Meff and DMC over Willie Williams’ Armagideon riddim on DubRealMC and supplies an instro version too. Morlack on the

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. III (2015)

Good To Go Go Vol. III MorlackYou know it’s only months with less than twenty eight days in them when there probably isn’t a Morlack release about to drop and years without four numbers when any given release doesn’t include some sort of nod towards the man’s beloved DC go-go music. So it won’t come as any surprise to learn that the Funk Blasters label boss is dropping Good To Go Go Vol. III later this week

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Funk Bananas (2015)

Funk Bananas BBPWho said big beat was dead? Certainly not Badboe’s label Breakbeat Paradise Recordings which presides over this very big-beat-tastic bunch of fifteen Funk Bananas which features the work of a select cadre of the label’s roster of artists. Step forward Pulp Fusion, Morlack, Discobeta, ElectroGorilla, Mr Bristow, SBK, Crashgroove, Rory Hoy and Wiccatron but mainly the latter seven
