BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Funk Originals (With Remixes) (Digital)

Back in 2017, Breakbeat Paradise Recordings took time out from dropping stuff that sampled funk to release vinyl 12″ Funk Originals instead –  four tracks of brand-new, all-original funk from Grand Slam, Grand Mother’s Funck, Nasa Funk and A Man About A Dog.  Now, that same collection gets a digital release with remixes of three of the tracks. First up is Beat Le Juice who takes on the pulsing electro funk of Grand Slam’s Get on Down and renders it into what might best be described as ‘wobble-boogie.’ This is succeeded by Jayl Funk’s remix of Grand Mother’s Funck’s jazz funky Tha Dog who slows the tempo, and changes the drums to make things a little slinkier while adding the odd scratch for some additional spice. Finally, B-Side and Badboe take on clattery jazz-funky fusioneering of A Man About A Dog’s Pollos and go all nu-disco-boogie on its ass – and you get to don your sunglasses with star-shaped lenses all over again.
(Out 10 April (Juno Download exclusive)/ 17 April globally on Breakbeat Paradise)
