RORY HOY feat ASHLEY SLATER: Gettin’ Home (2017)

On their latest collab, Rory Hoy and Ashley Slater tackle the issue of Gettin’ Home from ‘the party’. We’ve all been there – a night’s carousing followed by the sudden realisation that you need your distant bed. In the absence of a beer-scooter (i.e. you’re conscious enough to remember the epic night-hike you’re about to undertake), what you need is a jaunty anthem to belt out while

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

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-

SKEEWIFF: Funky Shizzle (2015)

Funky Shizzle SkewiffFunky Shizzle?

No, it’s ok thanks – I had one this morning. Oh – sorry – you meant the latest from Skeewiff – the man who’s carried the torch for two generations of funky breakbeat antics?! Well, in that case then it’s an emphatic yes please! What’s the deal?

Well – it’s a project that started in 2008 but then

OMEGAMAN: Hot Sauce Remixes (2015) + ‘Lovers Skank’ video

Hot Sauce Remixed OmegamanOmegaman hands the keys to over to the likes of Skeewiff, Fort Knox Five, Qdup and DJ Maars for the remixes of his Hot Sauce EP from last year with equally tangy consequences. So tangy in fact that you might have trouble picking a favourite from Skeewiff’s salsa breaks take on Oye Como Suena, Fort Knox Five’s slightly sped-up Lover’s Skank, QDup’s now neon-tinged electro boogie

SKEEWIFF: Skeewiff Vs Shawn Lee EP (2015)

EP Skeewiff Vs Shawn LeeNo prizes for guessing what is contained upon the Skeewiff Vs Shawn Lee EP or ‘Skee vs. Lee’ as I like to think of it. That’s right, veteran funk-soul-jazz-library-breaks-brother Skeewiff goes to town on veteran funk-soul-jazz-psychedelic-ambient brother Shawn Lee‘s groovy Soulfood 2 LP from a couple of years ago. Which came out on Skeewiff’s very own Pedigree Cuts label. Which must’ve been

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

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Fire (2014)

Fire EP Renegades Of Jazz AspectsFire is the first single off forthcoming LP Paradise Lost from ‘northern jazz’ don Renegades Of Jazz. Turns out he’s enlisted fallen rap angels, Aspects for mic duties and they employ their impressive powers of rhyme and rhetoric to spread the commandments of the adversary – you know – thou shalt add an ‘l’ to the end of any word ending in a vowel, thou shalt drink scrumpy and only

ALEXIA COLEY: Drive Me Wild (2014) + video

Drive Me Wild Alexia ColeyRating: ★★★★★ More excellence from Alexia Coley in the shape of the latin-horns flavoured northern soul of Drive Me Wild. She gets tingles deep inside according to the lyrics, which is what you’ll get when you hear it this too. Comes in Lack Of Afro and Skeewiff flavours too. The former goes in softly-softly before ditching the doo-wop percussion and unleashing something a little

SKEEWIFF: Ghetto Latin & Broken Ballroom Remixed (2014)

Remixed Ghetto Latin SkeewiffNot enough baroque beats in your life since – say – last September when Skeewiff‘s Ghetto Latin & Broken Ballroom came out? Fear not! It’s time to don a powdered wig and step to the marbled floor once more as said Wiffery gets remixed. Swingrowers go a bit hayseed dnb on Rumba Style, the Hong Kong Ping Pong crew are all about the carnival drums on their pumping take on
