HIPHOPPAPOTAMUS: Tropical Wiseguy (2014)

Tropical Wiseguy HiphoppapotamusHere’s something all set to rock the house and so simple it’s a wonder no-one’s thought of it already. But then isn’t that just always the way? What about…a latin-breaks rerub of that Wiseguys track? Ooh la la – er I mean – arriba – it’s the Tropical Wiseguy EP! Accompanying the title track are all manner of sunshiny musical flavours including a breaks version of a kettle drum take on

BOOTY FRUIT: Cherry Bombs Vol. 3 (2014)

Cherry Bombs Vol. 3 Booty FruitIt’s been a while since we had any hip-hop/ reggae Cherry Bombs but fear not for the (cherry) bomb bay of Booty Fruit command’s Vol. 3 will shortly be opening right above you. Nynfus Corp are on a grimy dub tip for example and the ever trusty DJ Maars is back (man) to apply to his beat an emcee who’s not a wack man but someone who eats rappers like he’s Pacman. That’ll be Das EFX then

DJ MAARS: Summer Soundbwoy Vol. 2 (2014)

Summer Soundbwoy Vol. 2 DJ MaarsRating: ★★★★★ Some would have it that a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play but were you aware that a Maars per gig helps you work a crowd, rest easy that they’re moving and plays well even with wall flowers? Such is the case with the man who seems of late to have taken over the Shepdog/JStar mantle as king of the reggae hip-hop mashup – DJ Maars. Summer Soundbwoy Vol. 2

DJ MAARS vs. TOM SHOWTIME: The Bling Tubby EP (2013)

DJ Maars and Tom Showtime continue their run of excellent reggae/ hip-hop mashups but alongside their (well-deserved) reputation for so doing they begin to cultivate a reputation for really quite shocking reggae/hip-hop puns as titles. Thus it is that The Bling Tubby EP constitutes the sequel to The Chipper Irie EP and the pair embark on a sadistic journey that seems likely to inflict such

DJ MAARS: Summer Soundbwoy EP Vol. 1 (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ DJ Maars attacks again with four more of his trademark reggae/hip-hop booty bullets. This time he sidesteps the ska and goes deep staging a raid on JStar territory with a dubbier choice of reggae beats to stitch rapapellas to. The Summer Soundbwoy EP Vol. 1 features four floor-rockers consisting of Jurassic-flavoured reggae, Wu-flavoured reggae, Alkaholiks-flavoured reggae and a

BOOTY FRUIT: Cherry Bombs Vol. 1 (2013)

The latest installment of fruity booty from the Booty Fruit crew is the first in their new series (Cherry Bombs Vol. 1) which sees them lobbing four mashed-up hip-hop bangarangers right atcha. Far be it from them to launch the newness without recruiting the heavyweights though and so it is that Breakbeat Paradise label owner Badboe signs up for booty duty along with the UK’s Roast

BOOTY FRUIT: Best In Season EP (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★
Quality is never out of season at Booty Fruit‘s beat market and lest ye forget they prove it by assembling the best of the best of many previous season’s releases, waxed, polished and gleaming on the green matting. By some strange vagary of interwebular traffic the monkey never got the chance to comment on some of these the first time

BOOTY FRUIT: Proper Produce Volume 5 (2012)

It’s rich pickings among the breaks section of the bass music market this December and Booty Fruit’s stall is no exception. Volume 5 of their Proper Produce series offers quality fare that steers clear of wobble ‘funk’ and vends hip-hop, funk and reggae influenced numbers instead. Mr Fresh, for example, is true to his name keeping things all hip-hop and mo’ fruity. Then there’s Lone Drum’s Minnie which

BOOTY FRUIT: Proper Produce Vol. 3 (2012)

For Proper Produce Volume 3, Booty Fruit have taken a simple approach which you could perhaps regard as one very large musical bap filled with a supersize helping of boom. Second cut Bad Influence from Prince Pimms and General Tack beefs up Dyke & The Blazers Let A Woman Be A Woman, Let A Man Be A Man and splices it with Jurassic 5 but the remaining trio are strickly
