Four others who also know this are Mako & Mr Bristow

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!

GRAMOPHONE SOUL: Toxic Funk Vol. 2 (Vinyl 7″)

GRAMOPHONE SOUL: Toxic Funk Vol. 2 (Vinyl 7Breakbeat Paradise is currently running two 45 series and Toxic Funk Vol. 2 is the next instalment of one of them, on which this time (unlike Volume 1) both tracks are the work of just one man – Gramophone Soul.

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Funk Originals (With Remixes) (Digital)

ELECTROGORILLA: Enimal Planet

ELECTROGORILLA: Enimal PlanetElectrogorilla (a.k.a. The Funk Fury, a.k.a Synoptix) follows 2015’s All Get Down EP on Breakbeat paradise with full-length effort Enimal Planet. It’s a nine-track affair on which our man hedges his bets by offering electro-tinged breaks of various flavours, that will appeal both to wobble fans (albeit while maintaining a healthy level of funkiness e.g. on Electrhino) and those preferring

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Bring Back The Funk Vol. 4 (2015)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Bring Back The Funk EP Vol. 4 (2015)Who’d have thunk it? It’s been two and a half years since the last volume of a certain BBP comp. so it’s long past time that Breakbeat Paradise dropped Bring Back The Funk Vol. 4 which is a bumper six cuts long. Longtime cohorts Badboe & Prosper stand up first with a Ludacris ‘pella and a James Taylor sample over a suitably beefy disco breaks beat to ensure your smiling face. There’s

TOSSES: Scratch Beats Vol. 1 (2016)

scratch-breaks-vol-1-tossesAle Tosses‘ production conveyor belt seems to be working overtime at the minute – this is at least his third release this year!

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Badass Funk EP (2016)

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

CALAGAD 13: Music Is My Life (2016)

Music Is My Life Calagad 13Rating: ★★★★★ 120 bpm plus and makes you want to leap around like a hare on hot coals? Gotta be b-boy breaks. Welcome to a world where if it doesn’t give you that itch, it ain’t worth scratching. There are no such shortcomings for The Fonkey Calling though – the amping opener to Calagad 13‘s triumphal return to BBP (their Music Is My Life EP) which carries enough firepower to see off

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Funk Bananas (2015)

Funk Bananas BBPWho said big beat was dead? Certainly not Badboe’s label Breakbeat Paradise Recordings which presides over this very big-beat-tastic bunch of fifteen Funk Bananas which features the work of a select cadre of the label’s roster of artists. Step forward Pulp Fusion, Morlack, Discobeta, ElectroGorilla, Mr Bristow, SBK, Crashgroove, Rory Hoy and Wiccatron but mainly the latter seven
