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

DJ YODA: Home Cooking

Looks like the fourth is strong (thank you, I’m here all week!) in Dj Yoda’s latest LP, Home Cooking which, if you don’t count his self-released Piano Breaks ’98 cassette job, is his…er…fourth solo studio long-player. Well, I say ‘solo’ but Home Cooking (or ‘Homecooking’ depending on your source) actually features a host of guest

ALDO VANUCCI feat. KYLIE AULDIST: Get A Hold On This + remixes

The latest single to be taken from Aldo Vanucci’s party-bumpin’ second LP, Diggin For A Living, is the Kylie Auldist-featuring, neo-northern soul stomping Get A Hold On This, which comes with a remix package so groovalicious, it might as well be called ‘Get A Hold Of This’. First up are The Allergies who, presumably figuring it would be hard to make things even more stomping, get a

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

ALDO VANUCCI: Digging For A Living

ALDO VANUCCI: Digging For A LivingRating: ★★★★★ As with its predecessor, Aldo Vanucci’s second long-player, Digging For A Living, goes by a title that references its debt to samples while its mix of soul, funk and hip-hop-flavoured party breaks continues precisely where Straight Lift left off, as if a mere twelve years hadn’t elapsed between release dates. It is called Digging… not Releasing… though and I think we

DISCOBETA: Sparks EP

DISCOBETA: Sparks EPIt’s been a while since the monkey has heard from production duo Discobeta but it looks like they’ve been keeping themselves busy and here’s the proof – their brand new Who Got The Sparks EP. Who got the sparks? Name sounds a bit like Black Moon’s Ronnie Laws-sampling ’93 Who Got The Props doesn’t it? As does the track itself come to that since all three cuts on the EP find Discobeta
