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

RORY HOY vs. KITTEN & THE HIP: I’m Ur MF (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ Rory Hoy nails a summer banger here and one with massive crossover chart potential to boot. One reason for that is I’m Ur MF‘s big Fatboy Slim-ish funky party breaks beat with acid flourishes. Another is having electro swing outfit Kitten & The Hip on vocals. The Hip is Ashley Slater (famously vocalist for his nineties collab with Norman Cook, Freak Power) who now

TRU FUNK: Nu Party Breaks Vol. 7 (2013)

“Yes mate – what can I get you?” “Six shots of party breaks booty bangers please” “Tru Funk’s Nu Party Breaks Vol. 7 do you?” “Yep – nice one – you always know what you’re getting don’t you?” Of course you do – reliably funk-related party breaks business, naturally. This release’s ‘most pornstar name’ award surely goes to Dick Diamond who works that party with some rap-on-hammond

RORY HOY – Bounce Rock/ Everybody Wants To Be A DJ (2012)

I think Pulpfusion might have started something with his Wrong World foray into ‘ghetto metal.’ Here’s the burgeoning scene’s latest progeny in the shape of Rory Hoy‘s forthcoming release on the Bulabeats label. That’ll be Bounce Rock then which does what it says on the tin. I got out of breath just listening to it. And then I heard Saxon Scoundrels‘ heavier remix and had to go and have a cup of tea and a lie-down. The sentiment of

PULPFUSION: Wrong World Remixed Vol. 2 (2012)

News of Pulpfusion’s Wrong World Remixed Vol 2 arrived at just the wrong time two weeks ago dropping on to monkey’s virtual doormat hours before the annual monkey summer holiday. Still, to redress matters here we are now in a brief examination of what happened when the Swiss beat assassin bravely handed over the keys of his Wrong World LP for the second time this year to a

DJ AXE vs. STEREO BEATZ: Funk N’ Breaks (BigMD038) (2012)

BigM regular Stereo Beatz has brought along his mate DJ Axe this time for Funk N’ Breaks or more accurately ‘ghetto funk n breaks’. Not that I’m complaining you understand – as the synths on this rock a funky ice cream van vibe that I haven’t heard since Jake Slazenger brought out Supaphunk about fifteen years ago. Slazenger’s was more of an armchair anthem though whereas the big breaks

VARIOUS: Bulabeats Four Zero (BB0040) (2012)

For many, reaching forty means a flabby gut, spending money you don’t have on a leather jacket and sports car you don’t need and staring at life’s traffic lights wondering where and when it all went so wrong. Not Bulabeats though. Nope, they’re hitting the dancefloor with a ten-track blast of dirty-ass bass and breaks. But maybe that’s because this is a celebration of Bulabeats’ fortieth release rather than their fortieth

TREMENDO Vol. 2: Various (2012)
