Dream Chaser MG Gost Jack JonesMG Gost teams up with Jack Jones a.k.a Audessey of Soundsci for some inspirational verses on this jazzy boom-bap freeness from the Dusty Platter label.

BUDAPEST BURLESQUE: The Gambler EP (2015)

The Gambler EP BUdapest BurlesqueWhat have we here then? Ah yes – Budapest Burlesque – not (in this instance at least) a chorus line of hotties clad in the skimpy lace panties and titty tassels but rather DJ Jutasi and Clarinet player Babi.

Sabotaggio Calibro 35 Beastie BoysI bet you can’t guess what this is. No it’s not a mirage – Italian mod-crime-funkers Calibro 35 have appropriated the acapella from one of the Beasties’ most notorious tracks – a certain shouty guitar-fest on Ill Communication (which harked back to a whole album of shouty guitar-fests on Licensed To Ill) and created their own edgy psych-funk backing track. Some might view that as

Illegal Move Dokkerman  The Turkeying FellazShortly to be released on Tramp Records is Illegal Moves – by the finest afro-funk-soul outfit that Hungary has to offer – Dokkerman & The Turkeying Fellaz.

Monmouth Breakdown BrassMore funk from the rodeo city of Calgary as Kept Records get their 45 on once more and provide two cuts from Brooklyn-based Breakdown Brass. A-side Monmouth has horns menacing enough to kick off some sort of rebellion while B-side Next Episode may ring some hip-hop bells.
