BADBOE & TOM SHOWTIME: Toxic Funk Vol. 1 (Vinyl 7″)

BADBOE & TOM SHOWTIME: Toxic Funk Vol. 1 (Vinyl 7Having popped their 45 cherry back in the spring with Mako & Mr Bristow’s Stank Soul Edits Vol. 4, the Breakbeat Paradise crew are obviously keen to enlarge their slice of the lucrative vinyl 7″ market. And so it is that Badboe & Tom Showtime team-up to deliver the second 45 on Breakbeat Paradise this year with Toxic Funk Vol. 1. The title notwithstanding, this vinyl 7″ actually provides phat hip-hop booties for the dancefloor. The first of these is We Funk Things – a solid reggae-boom-bap party affair (no surprise at all given the presence of Mr Showtime) re-working a certain Bush Babees number. Meanwhile, The Time Has Come reboots what was once a downtempo head-nod affair by Blahzay Blahzay as something a little more uptempo and altogether more uplifting. Arguably best of all however, is We Have It Hot (yes, not just BBP’s second 45 this year but the second to feature three tracks!), which provides a scorching slab of Latin boom-bap to underpin bars from The Beatnuts’ and Greg Nice. Get on it!
(Out 23 August on Breakbeat Paradise)
