KOWALSKI (a.k.a. DJTZINAS): Remixes EP (2015) Free download

Remixes KowalskiMore freebie action this New Year’s Eve Eve, with a big old barrel of bashment breaks bizniz. Kowalski: The Remixes finds Jamie Bostron, Chong X, Balkan Riddims, S Strong & Funkanizer and Bossy Ride get their sweaty mitts on Addictive and Dancehall Time off From Colorado To San Francisco by Djtzinas side project Kowalski and deliver two rerubs of the former and three of the latter

FREDDY Y SUS AFRO LATINOS: Maltrato (DJ DSK edit) (2015) Free download

Maltrato DJ DSK edit Freddy Y Sus Afro LatinosNow then, what about a bit of free latin naughtiness before NYE? Who doesn’t like a bit of that? In this case it’s DJ DSK‘s edit of Freddy Y Sus Afro Latinos’ Maltrato. There’s no suggestion that the 70s original has received any maltrato here though as our man goes for a subtle beat tweak delivering boom-bap oomph and creates a party-starting shimmy in the process. Which

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

THE SCRIBES present: MR TEATIME And The End Of The World (2015)

Mr Teatime End of World The ScribesRating: ★★★★★ Apparently, The Scribes boys recently ‘received’ an email from the future (2074 to be precise) courtesy of one ‘Mr Teatime’ who has survived a nuclear holocaust which let’s face it, is a mixed blessing at best. Worse, ‘the machines’ have also survived and as – any viewer of The Matrix and Terminator series will tell, this never works out well for humans. Still, at least

Sneaky Kilmatik Kev La Kat remixA mere 48 hours after sneaky freebie – er – Sneaky came out from Austin emcee Kilmatik (dropped in celebration of his debut Kool Keith-featuring LP Ruler) comes Kev La Kat with this sneaky little remix which monkeyboxing is able to premiere for your aural delectation and with somewhat more fanfare than the original. Love Our Records main man Kat chops up the piano

CLEVELAND ROBINSON: Xmas Time Is Here Again (EWAN HOOZAMI edit)(2015)

Xmas Time Is Here AgainChristmas time is here again and I’d be the first to admit that I’d be last in line to countenance any extension of that. Unless of course it was Cleveland Robinson’s funky Xmas Time Is Here Again and the choicest sections of the original had been extended by jolly, smiling festive spirit Ewan Hoozami who has also percussively pimped the original and sped it up. This last amendment has

KILMATIK: Sneaky (2015) Free download

Sneaky KilmatikAustin emcee Kilmatik celebrates the release of his debut LP Ruler (which contains the Kool Keith-featuring track Zero Weirdos) by sneaking out a free download this close to Christmas entitled, appropriately enough, Sneaky with minimal promotion. Man, that is sneaky. But why so sly? Minimal classical piano over a dusty break topped with furtive verse sounds all good to me. Cop it

THE BLUEBEATERS: La Mia Geisha (2015)

La Mia Geisha The BluebeatersThe Bluebeaters squeeze in another single off their superb Everyone Knows album before the end of the year with their take on Luigi Tenco’s 1962 Italian hit and croony ballad, La Mia Geisha. Poor old Luigi sadly committed suicide in 1967 after hearing that another of his songs had been eliminated from the Sanremo Music Festival a.k.a. the festival which inspired Eurovision. If only he’d
