OLD FLAME feat. RORY HOY: So Daft (2016)

so-daft-old-flame-rory-hoyHeavyweight big beat breaks in 2016? So daft – kind of like an old flame trying it on again. Actually, that can be quite a lot of fun can’t it? A bit like Old Flame‘s new musical adventure So Daft on which he’s brought a mate who also has a penchant for big beat – Rory Hoy. Blimey, it’ll be an aural threesome – you, Old Flame and Rory Hoy! Talkin’ of bringing up the past, the loop on

TURNTILL: TCF Rock Riddim (Remixed) (2016)

TCF Rock Riddim Remixed TurntillBack last year aways, DJ Turntill of Swiss crew The Chosen Few set out to make a single reggae track. Remember that fact, it’s important – a single reggae track. However, being a musically well-connected sort (due to his label and crew The Chosen Few) one thing led to another and he ended up with no fewer than twenty different vocal versions of said riddim released as TCF Rock

BMD: Funk It Up (2016)

Funk It Up BMDFormer Tru:Funker BMD is back in the production seat with new single Funk It Up. In fact not so much ‘funk it up’ as ‘big beat it up’ as he goes hell-for-leather after the sound that once defined the Heavenly Social club – pounding uptempo breaks and a 90s take on the kind of noise that post-punks ESG used to make in the clubs of NYC back in the early 80s. Of course – that does bring

Hey Everybody Rory Hoy Ashley SlaterHey Everybody! Not just the title of the new disco biscuit from Rory Hoy featuring Ashley Slater (as they of them team-up to make it funky from Knaresborough to Brighton) but an exhortation to report to the dancefloor as the pair show Pharrell and Daft Punk it’s not just Smoove & Turrell that have them in their sights. “Hey Everybody/ You ain’t never goin’ to get a lady with that loser vibe

BEATNIK CITY: The Beat Kicks Vol. 2 (2015)

The Beat Kicks Vol 2 Beatnik CityRating: ★★★★★ I thought it was high time for more big beat licks from The Beat Kicks booty series on Beatnik City – and here it is – with all the swagger of its predecessor. Vol. 2 weighs in at one track deeper but the game is the same – namely pedal-to-the-metal, big beat versions of sixties classics. Some uptempo library music with little added DWYCK sir? Try Fab Samperi and Skeewiff. Re-

Step forward Pulp Fusion, Morlack, Discobeta, ElectroGorilla, Mr Bristow, SBK, Crashgroove, Rory Hoy and Wiccatron but mainly the latter seven

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
