PIMPERNEL JONES: RPM 2020

MORLACK: Skanky Bank Vol. II EP

MORLACK: Skanky Bank Vol. II EPAre you getting the feeling there’s an island influence on the four new cuts from Morlack that comprise Skanky Bank Vol. II?┬áThe cover art’s a bit of a giveaway after all, the Funk Blasters’ Betty Davis label logo which seems to have swapped heads, old-school Worzel Gummidge style, (“‘allo Aunt Sally, I’ll just get me rasta ‘ead on”), and the rest of it features palm trees silhouetted against a

FUNKIN BASSTARDS: Drop The Mirrorball

FUNKIN BASSTARDS: Drop The MirrorballWith a title like Drop The Mirrorball and cover art like that, you can probably already sense that this is the second disco-friendly payload today – in this case from Funkin Basstards.

ZERO THE DESK: The Secret Edits Volume 1

ZERO THE DESK: The Secret Edits Volume 1New from Bulabeats, it’s chunky breaks package The Secret Edits Volume 1 from the mysteriously-named Zero The Desk – quite possibly the nom-de-plume of a certain Mr Pluse given that the drum patterns and sounds on offer here are his signature. Whatever the truth of the matter, this producer steps on you again by chopping up a notorious Madchester anthem over clattery beats
