Yet another 45 on the way and this time it’s double funky action from the Jalapeno Records camp with a Basement Freaks and Kylie Auldist collab. on the one hand and a Basement Freaks remix of a John Turrell cut on t’other.

SAVAGES Y SUEFO: Brotherhood

SAVAGES Y SUEFO:  BrotherhoodAt last, the long-promised Savages Y Suefo LP, Brotherhood has dropped. Surely, this was first rumoured, oohh, two years ago when the Ashley Slater-featuring single Revolution! appeared. And since that track appears on this, it now seems, in retrospect, to have been the lead single. Two years? Man, that is a long lead time. Mind you, better late than never, and the implicit call to unity

PECOE: Funk Nuggets

PECOE:  Funk NuggetsNot had enough funky breaks today yet eh? Alright, let’s try you with a bit of Pecoe – the Perth-based beat-prospector whose recent discovery of a seam of funky ore has culminated in the appearance of five chunky Funk Nuggets. The title track, for example, contains elements (thank you, I’m here all week) of pulsating, pitch-bending 80s funk and appears to be flecked with particles

FUNKIN’ BASSTARDS: Return Of The Originals

FUNKIN' BASSTARDS:  Return Of The OriginalsDo not adjust your radio dial, it’s not the 90s coming at you through the ether, just Funkin’ Basstards with their very b-boy friendly new four-tracker Return Of The Originals. Which, as the title suggests, draws its inspiration from a pre-bass wobble-era in which big beat went head to head with the hip-hop underground on dancefloors. The ever reliable Mustafa Akbar appears on the

THE ALLERGIES: Steal The Show

THE ALLERGIES:  Steal The ShowRating: ★★★★★ For god’s sake nail down down anything that moves before The Allergies steal the show. They’re after the lot – underground love, mainstream recognition, old samples, new beats and all the guest vocalists they can lay their hands on. What’s all the fuss? Why – it’s the arrival of new album Steal The Show of course – Moneyshot and Rackabeat’s third in just two years. Man that

DJ PNUTZ:  Play That Beat Mrs DJNever let it be said the girls can’t match the beat-making output of the boys as DJ Pnutz drops her third full-length album, Play That Beat Mrs DJ, in two years. And once again the San Diego-based dj/producer weighs in with a substantial opus – this one tipping the scales at fifteen tracks. Like its predecessors, The Good Wife’s Guide To

HONEST LEE: Pajarito + video

HONEST LEE:  PajaritoIt’s been a while since the monkey’s heard from Growroom Productions label boss Honest Lee, but he’s a man who is still very much in business. Indeed, he’s got a nine-track debut album, Solera, in the offing no less. Pajarito is the first cut from it and offers flute-led, chilled-latin breakbeat vibes. This all makes perfect sense if you know what ‘pajarito’ actually means – or at least made the

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits Vol. 2

MORLACK:  Cheeky Edits Vol. 2 Cheeky Edits Vol. 2 eh? Don’t beat about the bush Morlack, say what you really mean! Oh, right, sorry – you did. Cheeky edits of what though? Knowing you, I’m guessing vintage funk from the late 70s to late 80s or perhaps even early 90s at a stretch – but who specifically? Let’s see now…Trouble Funk? No? I see – stepping out of our comfort zone are we eh? What about Parliament
