THE BREAKBEAT JUNKIE VS DJP:  Hit Me With The HornsThe Bank Holiday arrival of new party breakbeat single Hit Me With The Horns can only mean one thing. That’s right – it’s time to welcome back a certain TBJ and DJP – or The Breakbeat Junkie vs DJP as they style themselves – as if their horns were continually locked over production issues. And despite going around the horn, as it were, by


Badass Funk EP Breakbeat Paradise RecordingsRating: ★★★★★ Blimey. Hold the floor. When a label like Breakbeat Paradise celebrates ten years in the business you know you can expect some heavyweight party breaks action and with a name like Badass Funk EP – you know that shit is going to be stanker than JB’s jock strap. Don’t be expecting any wobble though because part of this one’s charm is that in celebrating a label

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 5 (2015)

Scoured Cream Vol 5 Scour RecordsIt’s time to get creamy again boys and girls. Why? Because Vol.5 of Scoured Cream, the ongoing series of wobbly, glitchy breakbeat butterphat from Scour Records is imminent! As usual there’s plenty of buzzsaw bass-synth antics and indeed the Bear Twists/ Father Funk/ Phibes/ WBBL opening quartet is business as usual in this regard. Where things start to get interesting for the

TREMENDO Vol. 2: Various (2012)

Telephunken’s Tremendo express rolls into the station for the second time in a manner much like its predecessor. A whopping eight party breaks? Check. One of his own plus some other established big hitters (Badboe, The Breakbeat Junkie and Rory Hoy) and a few young guns – Morlack, DJ Rudd, Bobby C Sound TV and Wood N Soo? Check. Cover the whole gamut of party breaks sub-genres? Check. Best cuts this time are

GMF feat. AKIL THE MC: Remixed! (2012)

“Do whatever feels good to you. It’s cool/ For you to do whatever you want to just do,” raps former Jurassic 5 member Akil The MC on the original Grand Mother’s Funck version of Do (video below) – with admirable laissez-faire as his and the band’s work is taken off by Badboe and various nu-funky friends. Perhaps surprisingly, the end result isn’t a six-track ‘loud-up the drums, wobble

BBP: Freak Hop EP (2011)

It says here that the ‘freak hop’ concept was invented by long time Badboe cohort Prosper. ‘Freak hop’, in case you were wondering, seems to be like a mash-up for those with terminal ADHD since it involves combining not two or even three previously recorded tracks but as many as can possibly be crammed into between 4 to six minutes. Didn’t that used to be called a minimix? Whatever it is, the main elements of all the tracks

BIG M PRODUCTIONS: Banging Artists Vol. 6

Rating: ★★★½☆

It’s ‘Volume 6’ o’clock in Nufunk land at the minute and Big M beat Manmade Records to the draw by dint of fact that this is already out. Funnily enough Manmade label bosses CMC & Silenta turn up on the first track on which they give Papa Was A Rolling Stone a disco-breakin makeover. Then you’ve got Breakbeat Junkie throwing a multitude of ingredients into the nufunk melting pot and Hayz feeding beat steroids to the Happy Mondays. So far, so nufunk by numbers. Happily Ewan Hoozami rocks up at the end with the beefy Drinking Song, a collision of hefty scattershot drums, chopped up ancient scratchy vocal and a cheeky little homage to Rage Against The Machine after a ridiculously long breakdown. Watch this man!

NICK PRIDE & THE PIMPTONES/ THE BREAKBEAT JUNKIE: Deeper Pimp (Smoove re-touch)/ Turn It Up 7” – Wack Records W07

Oh shit! Double funky trouble from Smoove’s Wack Records with more than a dash of the mambo in the second track…
Nick Pride & The Pimptones- Deeper Pimp (Smoove Re-touch)
A long time ago in a far away galaxy, a Band of musicians got together with the queen of soul music to lay down some of the heaviest funk tunes known to mankind. This version was never released until it was recently discovered by aliens who kindly transported the master tape back to planet earth.
The Breakbeat Junkie – Turn It Up
Coming straight outa Nottingham the pause button master decided to ditch his cassette tapes and ZX spectrum for 21st century computer and keyboard and has since fast grown a reputation amongst avid beat heads for making superb slices of Funk, Hip-Hop and breaks and rarely would it deviate…the rest is history.
All aboard the Funky break train!
Out 5 October on Wack Records
