On

MINED & FORREST: Coming Through EP

MINED & FORREST: Coming Through EPStand aside please, Mined & Forrest coming through with – er – Coming Through, the follow-up to their previous extended play effort on Breakbeat Paradise – There It Is.

DAYTONER:  Feel Like Jumping b/w Perfidious (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Feel like jumping? You will do when you’ve heard this as Daytoner is all set to drop another gold standard double sure-shot 45 by way of a follow-up to the last time he released a gold standard double sure-shot 45.

DUBBEN:  Jesus Boogie b/w Cachaça (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ How do Matasuna Records do it? The time between vinyl 7″ releases shrinks again yet they put out their best release so far – why it’s against all natural law!

DJ KRASH SLAUGHTA: A Little Funk (In Your House) b/w SPECIFIK:  Back To Business (Vinyl 7What better way for B-Line Recordings’ new vinyl 45 imprint, 7 Series Phonograph Co., to introduce itself than with two super-funky b-boy bangers courtesy of Glasgow’s DJ Krash Slaughta (previously A.W.O.L. since his Bobby Deans find and remix in 2016) and Bournemouth’s Specifik. Krash brings us A Little Funk (In Your House) which turns on a funky drums and conga break
