INNEREYEFULL: Shake That Thing

INNEREYEFULL: Shake That ThingThe thing with spending a significant proportion of three years shaking your thing live at such festivals as Beautiful Days, Port Eliot, the Great Estate and the Newquay Boardmasters is that it doesn’t leave so much time to shake your thing in the studio. Which probably explains why Shake That Thing is the first new single out of the Innereyefull camp in the best part of a year. Still

DOUBLE BUBBLE: Ridiculous EP

DOUBLE BUBBLE: Ridiculous EP Neither a new brand of inflatable chewing gum nor indeed a line from the ‘Scottish play,’ Double Bubble hail from Nottingham and come bearing party breaks. Title track Ridiculous finds Kurnel MC riding a bleepy, rolling drum beat as he references interplanetary travel in such a manner that may lead some to suspect the employment of a metaphor. One about being on a natural high

SMOOVE: Recorded Delivery

SMOOVE: Recorded DeliveryEight years after his original Jalapeno Records remix comp. First Class dropped, Smoove finally follows up with the sequel, Recorded Delivery. Eight years! Why the wait? Well that’ll partly be the small matter of writing, producing and touring the three Smoove & Turrell LPs that have come out in that time, all those live DJ sets and many of the remixes which are collected on this – so many in

THE ALLERGIES: Every Trick In The Book (Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Every Trick In The Book (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ I don’t know – those Allergies boys, they make you feel good and they know how to turn you on. Oh wait, no, that’s – well…never mind. What I meant was The Allergies make you feel good and they know every trick in the book – which, as we all know, has resulted in an impressive run of grooves that keep you hooked. Take their forthcoming 45 banger – er – Every

BASEMENT FREAKS: ‘Tape Funk’ sample pack

BASEMENT FREAKS: 'Tape Funk' sample packMB regulars will know that over the years Basement Freaks has knocked out a multitude of sample packs for Black Octopus in all kinds of flavours but for Tape Funk, his twentieth (!), it’s something a little bit special. Made as a collab. with Concord Audio, it’s got a title that evokes an era of analogue warmth because the entire contents were run through a vintage tape machine

DJ OONOPS: Oonops Drops Vol. 2

DJ OONOPS: Oonops Drops Vol. 2 Stand by for Oonops Drops Vol. 2, the second volume in a multi-genre compilation series from Brooklyn Radio’s DJ Oonops which comes out on Agogo Records at the end of the month. It seems our man spent more than a year putting the funk, soul, dub, jazz, beats and hip-hop encompassing double vinyl project together and you know with that level of time investment, there’s going to be a

MORLACK: Bluff

MORLACK: Bluff No frontin’ from Morlack as he delivers a new party breaks LP, the thirteen-track Bluff. The producer is one of the few scene players who actually troubles to knock out whole albums and not only is this his ninth full-length effort (thus surely giving anyone else’s record in the genre a thorough trouncing) he continues to maintain an envious level of consistency. Those familiar with

CANNON & MIRRORBALL: Black Rhythm Rap/ Makin Time (Vinyl 7″)

CANNON & MIRRORBALL: Black Rhythm Rap/ Makin Time (Vinyl 7So successful was Cannon & Mirrorball’s last set of cut n paste disco antics for the Disco Bits label that they’ve been invited back again to do another 45 – Black Rhythm Rap b/w Makin Time. The latter cuts up Loleatta Holloway’s 1980s hit Love Sensation for a funky nu-disco excursion and in doing so reclaims the track as a sample source from the clammy hands of 90s Italo-house casualties Black Box. For the monkey though, it’s

ALEXANDER NORMAN feat. DYNAMITE MC: Flamingo

ALEXANDER NORMAN feat. DYNAMITE MC: FlamingoDecked out in shocking pink and spending the entire time cooling off in water and eating, no bird says summer quite like a flamingo.  Which is probably why Alexander Norman named his new anthem for crazy nights and lazy days after it.  Featuring UK mic veteran Dynamite MC (doing a more breezy turn than usual on the mic – perhaps because he’s donned his Adidas shelltoes and is on

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Breakin’ The Riddim Vol. 3

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Breakin’ The Riddim Vol. 3A bit later than last year’s Vol. 2, Vol. 3 of Breakbeat Paradise’s bashment breaks crossover comp. Breakin’ The Riddim has arrived with ten tracks to tun up the dancefloor. Twice as long as the initial volume and very slightly lighter than last year’s Vol. 2 the comp. sees a host of the usual suspects return: Cockney Nutjob, Fredy High and Basschimp (who’ve featured on both previous
