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

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

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

LAPTOP FUNKERS: Feel The Goodness (2016)

Feel The Goodness Laptop FunkersLaptop Funkers follow up 2013’s Ready To Rumble EP with an eight-track mini album, Feel The Goodness, that suggests the intervening three years have left them champing at the bit. Why? Because here are bouncing party breaks that hark back to the glory days of early big beat and set them alongside like such latterday non-wobble big beat like minds such as Rory Hoy and DJ Axe

BASEMENT FREAKS: Block Party Mix (2016)

Block Party Mix Basement FreaksOh Christ. Grab hold of something sturdy. Basement Freaks is in the club and he’s brought planet-sized farty bass, party breakbeats and…Queen? Yes that’s right – it takes a brave breaks-man to open his set with stadium pomp rock’s campest (and that’s saying something) (p)outfit but Georgios Fotiadis is that man. He will rock you. Any concerns that his latest Block Party Mix is

WACK RECORDS 16: SMOOVE Nowhere To Go/ Return Of The Beats 7″ (2016)

Wack 16 SmooveRating: ★★★★★ If only at least one of the booty soul breaks cuts off Beatnik City’s epic Northern Breaks Vol. 1 could appear on vinyl sighed the monkey previously about said EP. Yeah – like that’s going to happen – Beatnik City are thus far digi-only. If only one of the dj/ producers involved had their own party breaks label and were all set up to do vinyl. Enter Wack Records (prop. one S. Moove) and Wack 16 – featuring a Vandellas-on-steroids

BEATNIK CITY: Northern Beats Vol. 1 (2016)

Northern Beats Vol. 1 Beatnik CityRating: ★★★★★ Forget mods vs. rockers. If diehard northern soulies get wind of how fast and loose the very concepts of Motown and northern soul have been played with for Beatnik City’s latest booty-breaks outing, it’ll be bowling bags at dawn, Bruce Lee kicks and ninja-style clouds of talc thrown in the eyes. Just as well those involved are all on their game for Northern Beats Vol. 1

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
