Good lord has the Bulabeats label really been around eleven years!? It’s certainly been around long enough to amass more than enough party breaks action to fill – say – a double vinyl LP. A double vinyl LP!? Yes – not some piddling little 45 but a proper man’s format. Twelve inches times two. Super stable on the decks. Not so prone to warping and cupping. A scratch artist’s dream. And in this case, no fewer than sixteen nuggets culled from the label’s back catalogue.
The tracks included take in hip-hop, glitch-funk, breaks of many flavours (including reggae-breaks hybrids) and drum n bass and come from label boss Johnny Pluse himself, Frankee More, Ri Ra, Arron Mazarati, Loop Maffia, Dusty Tonez, Djtzinas and Hephph along with remixes from Frankee More, DJ AKA and Leygo. Highlights have to be Arron Mazarati’s neck-snappin’ boom-bap number I Don’t Need You and Dusty Tonez’ funky party breaks banger Got That Funk. Pre-order and listen HERE. Ah go on – you know you want to!
