BASEMENT FREAKS: ‘Am Free’ – Free download

‘Don’t be afraid of your free download!’ George Fotiadis a.k.a. Basement Freaks celebrates the rise and rise of his label Bombastic Jam with a typically – er – bombastic refix of the early nineties indie/ baggy cover of the Rolling Stones track by The Soup Dragons. You can cop it HERE.
(N.B. This would have gone up last week except for severe back injury sustained by monkeyboxing’s editor during a hardcore surf session…All right it was two foot and mellow. But the pain wasn’t.)

QUASAMODO: Bollywood Man EP feat. MC Coppa – 2010 – EP review

Rating: ★★★★★

The funky breaks scene has been getting so cheesy recently you could serve it up on crackers at the end of a dinner party – so it’s Quasamodo and MC Coppa to the rescue with a little help from Basement Freaks’ new label Bombastic Jam with the Bollywood Man EP. Despite Coppa’s claiming “I’m a Bollywood man with Bollywood plans/ Got Bollywood fans who do the weird dancing with their hands” the EP, perhaps unexpectedly, is not a cue for loads of bhangra-fuelled antics but an excuse to offload the biggest funky breaks banger so far this year. The wah-wah toting original mix would take the gold medal were it not topped by the Basement Freaks remix horns-fest which doesn’t so much strike you as a good track as prance around shouting “Get me – I’m the shit!’ With considerable justification. Yep it’s yet another full marks – looks like this spring is better than last for beats and rhymes. I know how my next set’s going to finish.
(Out 16 March on Bombastic Jam)
