DISCOBETA: Down The Block EP

You’d expect nothing less than hefty breakbeat material from DiscObeta and they don’t disappoint on their new Down The Block EP. Said release features two such original cuts – the title track and Yoobie Doo – both of which max out the scales with a presence like reinforced concrete. Yoobie Doo employs several bars of Sean Price’s Sixty Bar Dash over a booming spacey rhythm

ONDATROPICA: Cumbia Especial (MANOSJMT edit)(2017)

ONDATROPICA:  Cumbia Especial (MANOSJMT edit)There was a time a couple of years ago when you could barely move for breakbeat edits of Latin tracks – all of them good, not a few of them cumbia-based and for some reason, many of them done by Greek producers. Lately though, such fare has been thin on the ground. Luckily, Manosjmt is here to fill the gap in the market with his edit of Ondatropica’s Cumbia Especial. You’ll note from

MORLACK: Sokit2Me EP (2012)

Definitely one of the funkiest producers aligned with the ghetto funk movement, the Sokit2Me EP is Morlack’s latest effort and finds him reworking a number of old school gems for the kids. The title cut sees him have a go at a bit of DC Go Go – and when I say ‘having a go’ I mean producing a bass-bumpin version of Ayre Rayde’s 1986 cut Sock It To Me – a rework which All Good Funk Alliance

DJTZINAS: Mad So Mush EP (2012)

The European fiscal storm might be pissing down from an especially great height on Greece and Ireland at the minute but here’s a team-up to bring a few rays of musical sunshine as Cretan producer Djtzinas (or is it DJ Tzinas – I’m never quite sure?) gets signed up to Irish label Bulabeats. Tzinas’s Mad So Mash EP is a short and sweet three-tracker demonstrating the talents of a man who knows how to prudently spread the contents of his musical

JOHNNYPLUSE: This Will Twist Your Head (2011) Free download

‘Tis the season of giving and here’s JohnnyPluse, boss of Irish label Bulabeats, coming over all Santa-fied with free fourteen-track LP. If you’re the sort of person who doesn’t have enough breakbeat remixes in your life this’ll twist your head and probably your melons too. JP’s basically remixed his way through the punk and post-punk seventies (Blondie, The Clash and The Jam), the overblown and self-indulgent eighties

MADBALL SCIENTISTS: All This Beauty EP (2011)

Maybe it’s the fact that it’s scorchio outside, and I sit writing this in little more than my birthday suit fanned by dusky beauties in fur bikinis but at this moment in time Madball ScientistsAll This Beauty EP seems the very thing to be listening to. Maybe it’s because the Madball Scientists is a team up between Andre Lamb who hails from the adopted country of trip-hop, New Zealand and legend in his own lifetime David

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Moo Juice EP – 2011

Stand aside fusion bores and chin-stroking poseurs, Renegades Of Jazz is back with a new single! Moo Juice is yet more gold-top goodness from David Hanke whose ability to combine jazz samples and heavyweight breakbeats without sounding all wanky/ noodly is near supernatural. Lighter on it’s feet than the music of ‘Daisy Age’ hip-hop but with just as substantial a bottom end

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Get A Wiggle On – Release details

Renegades Of Jazz (a.k.a. breakbeat duo Mash & Munkee’s David Hanke) once again tempers his perverted love for jazz scat-singing with a connoisseur’s choice of breakbeat and uplifting b-line. So good are they in fact that, once again, I found myself overlooking what would otherwise be some frankly unforgivable ‘do-be-doing.’ Not that ‘do-be-doing’ is ever forgivable of course, but couple some crisp percussion, ‘Animal’-off-The Muppets-style drum fills with

AQUASKY feat. THE RAGGA TWINS: Living Legends/Raggatron – 2010

AQUASKY feat. THE RAGGA TWINS:  Living Legends/Raggatron – 2010Christ! I got knackered just listening to this. Normally, long-serving breakbeat terrorists Aquasky would be too ‘core to feature on monkeyboxing and – er – they still are. On Living Legends they supply an approximately 135 bpm breakbeat and a loop that sounds suspiciously like it came from the Blues Brothers soundtrack then race ‘do-what-it-says-on-their-tin’ vocalists The Ragga Twins to the finish.
