FORT KNOX FIVE: The Brazilian Hipster (Vinyl 7″)

FORT KNOX FIVE: The Brazilian Hipster (Vinyl 7Back in 2004 when Fort Knox Five’s fifth release and signature cut The Brazilian Hipster first came out, the vinyl 12″ was still king of DJ formats, digital was a dirty word and the 45 was little more than the province of die-hard spinners of old wax. Fast forward to now and the 12″ is a rarity, digital’s huge (but still a dirty word in some parts) while there’s nothing hipper than a vinyl 7″. What

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Neverthless

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: NeverthlessSince 2011, he’s invented the genre of ‘northern jazz’ and put out two albums’ worth of it (plus a remix LP of one of them), created an epically atmospheric Lucifer-themed concept album (plus a remix of the same), dropped an afro-beat inspired long player (and, again, a remix of the same) and now, creative powers as fertile as ever, David Hanke a.k.a Renegades Of Jazz, releases his

KOKA MASS JAZZ: Elephunky Trip (Vinyl 12″)

Koka Mass Jazz’s Elephunky Trip twelve inch is the new piece of vinyl out from Timewarp Music and, perhaps surprisingly, is only the long-running label’s second wax drop.

SNOOP DOGG: Snoop’s Upside Ya Head (BRUNO BORLONE Remix)

SNOOP DOGG: Snoop's Upside Ya Head (BRUNO BORLONE Remix)Chilean producer Bruno Borlone’s been away for a while but as you’ll hear, he still seems to be doggystylin’ on Edit Row with shit locked down and sewed up on the first of two Snoop Dogg remixes today. This particular one finds one Calvin Broadus Jr. well and truly upside your head on Borlone’s version of – er – Snoop’s Upside Ya Head. Out goes the minimal G-funk fuzz of the original and in

KIBOSH: Pocky Way – Free download

KIBOSH: Pocky Way - Free downloadIt’s been a bit of a week for party breakbeat releases and here’s yet another – Kibosh’s Pocky Way Scour Freemix remix thingy of The Meters’ Hey Pocky A-Way. The original came out on the Rejuvenation LP bang in the middle of the New Orleans legends’ glorious original eight album run between 1969 and 1977 and was a loose mid-tempo groove dripping with sub-tropical bayou

MORLACK: Pull Up

MORLACK: Pull UpIt had been relatively quiet from the Morlack camp over the last year or so but one of party breaks’ most prolific producers seems to be ramping up his productivity again with two EPS in the last month. The first was Katakana Edits Vol. 83, the second is this one – Pull Up. And as with its predecessor, it finds Morlack stepping outside of his DC Go-go comfort zone, this time into the

MAKE IT FUNKY TORONTO presents: DJ TANNER AV Showcase

MAKE IT FUNKY TORONTO presents: DJ TANNER AV ShowcaseFollowing the overwhelming audience love for his AV set at a gig supporting Krafty Kuts in Toronto back in March, it would be rude of DJ Tanner not to recreate the very same set for posterity and upload to the interweb – er – so that’s what he’s done. Marvel and groove then whilst watching visuals for the very same tracks you’re listening and moving too. For those who prefer a more

JOHNNYPLUSE: ‘Give Me A Break’ podcast

JOHNNYPLUSE: 'Give Me A Break' podcastWind the clock back nearly a year and Johnnypluse was on the cusp on unleashing his new video and homage to the funk drum breakdown – Give Me A Break. Somewhere between then and now though, the video was jettisoned and – perhaps appopriately, given it’s focus on the sound of funky drums – the project has now been released as a podcast. It’s still got interviews with Krafty Kuts

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 83 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 83 MORLACKNow on an incredible Vol. 83, the Katakana Edits series once more features breakbeat’s go-go king, Morlack, though on this occasion he’s heading in a funky direction that’s less DC-centric. First up is the brisk Jimmy Sabater-sampling Here Comes The Hook which sets a very funky precedent that is ably matched by the squelchy groove of Sossego – a heavyweight rerub of an already very groovy
