MAKO & MR BRISTOW: Mojan Edits: Uptight Boss b/w Beg For A Dollar (Vinyl 7″)

MORLACK: Closet Freak EPSurely the most prolific artist on BBP’s roster – even if he’s been relatively quiet of late – Morlack returns with brand new EP, Closet Freak.

CRASH PARTY: Toxic Funk Vol. 5 (Vinyl 7?)Rating: ★★★★★ Breakbeat Paradise keep up a very successful run of 45s as Crash Party – er – crashes the party with Toxic Funk Vol. 5 and a double measure of hip-hop influenced booty. We’ll start by considering B-side World Gone Def. which marries Joe Tex, Method Man and a funky boom-bap rhythm for a joint which could well have been an A-side itself were it not for the fact that the A-side on this, Dirty Glass, generates even more
