BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Disco Paradise Vol. 2

Following up on one of the label’s many compilation series is Breakbeat Paradise’s Disco Paradise Vol. 2 – a BBP allstars effort that manages to top Vol. 1 in a couple of ways. It’s longer for one, with fourteen tracks to its predecessor’s eight and it’s even more pumpingly – well – disco. Having said that, there’s all flavours and eras of disco represented with Luke

PECOE: It’s My Beat EP

PECOE: It's My Beat EPIt’s My Beat is the new EP from Pecoe, the title track of which does indeed see Pecoe providing his own beat (with nods to The Ohio Players) for an ancient Sweet Tee & Jazzy Joyce number.

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Christmas Bootleg Bells Vol. 2

Christmas Bootleg Bells Vol. 2 Breakbeat Paradise Records start the Christmas festivities early in 2020 (forgivably, you might agree, given the events of the preceding eleven months) by spreading advance Yuletide cheer with the Christmas Bootleg Bells Vol. 2 LP. The plan was simple – give the multifarious members of the BBP family the chance to rework classic funk and soul Christmas tracks (as opposed to more

MINED & FORREST: Cool Operator EP

MINED & FORREST: Cool Operator EPIt’s all about the variety on Cool Operator, Mined & Forrest’s new breakbeat EP on BBP. The opener and title track is a relatively chilled affair offering glitch-hoppy stylings compared to the thunderous, snarling guitar-led business of Rock-It which follows. Up next, NY Diesel dials down the grit in favour of breakbeat atmospherics and a clear bid for the very next opening in the cyberpunk/ hacker movie soundtrack market. Finally the duo

PROSPER & BADBOE: Toxic Funk Vol. 3 (Vinyl 7″)

PROSPER & BADBOE: Toxic Funk Vol. 3 (Vinyl 7 Prosper & Badboe ensure the 45 side of things continues to bubble away at the Breakbeat Paradise label with the arrival of new vinyl 7″, Toxic Funk Vol. 3.  And the first of two cuts to be featured is A-side Beastie Lifestyles on which (you guessed it) the Beastie Boys’ All Lifestyles ‘pella sees the light of day again over a jaunty new disco-funky beat. This alone should provide more than enough ‘shabadoo shabbadee’ (if not

PECOE: Funk Anthems EP

Funk Anthems EP PecoeIf you’ve caught any of Pecoe’s previous material, the news that he’s got a new EP out on BBP called Funk Anthems will be cause for celebration. Possibly not coincidentally, the material on this one is reminiscent of circa 2009 LP Break The Funk by label owner Badboe himself – to wit, party breakbeat tunes comprised of funky grooves and a plethora of vocal samples with wobble-free

MAKO & MR BRISTOW: Stank Soul Edits Vol. 6 (Vinyl 7″)

MAKO & MR BRISTOW: Stank Soul Edits Vol. 6 (Vinyl 7It’s been a long road to getting this out – the small matter of a pandemic being only one among multifarious delays that nearly meant no vinyl drop at all.  Ultimately however, the forces of light have triumphed – in so sudden and final a turnaround that Mako & Mr Bristow’s Stank Soul Edits Vol.6 arrived before the PR was finalised.  So let’s cut to the chase – on the one side – Stealin’ Alright; on t’other side – Stolen Nolan. Cheeky!
