COCKNEY NUTJOB: Get Up On Your Feet EP (2013) + video

Wasn’t it the late great Rufus Thomas who said, “Get up on your feet and then you start to move,”? I’m not sure what he had in mind was Cockney Nutjob‘s third outing for the Radical Mixtape label but to some extent that’s academic as the parping bass-horns which form an integral part of the powerful skanking title track along with the various chopped-up well-known vocal snippets that

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Fresh From The Sewer Mix (2013)

It might be his ‘Fresh From The Sewer’ mix but there are no turds here as the underrated Cockney Nutjob tears up the breaks for twelve tracks straight (from track fifteen to twenty seven) with an exclusive mix for Turtle and Fringe Of Steel’s KaneFM Fresh From The Sewer show from the Sunday before last (MB’s finger on the pulse as usual!). It features a wealth of the great and good of the ghetto funk massive and a number of exclusives. I’m assuming those are the Cockney

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Everywhere (2012) Free download

On which Bournemouth-based ghetto funk producer and dj Cockney Nutjob takes a morality holiday. There I was absent-mindedly nodding along to Everywhere’s breaks and catchy bass shudders when with dawning horror I realised that one of the samples on this booming ghetto funker was soft-rock criminals Fleetwood bastard Mac. Mind you, in a week where one wealthy comedian

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Luda Kool (2012) Free download

DJ/Producer, Brap FM host and Mighty Boosh watcher Cockney Nutjob’s latest mashes up Ludacris’s Get Back with Kool & The Gang’s Celebration adding ear-threatening breaks and wobbly bass to give both tracks the ghetto-funking they’d always wanted but never realised. Problem with that? All complaints to

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Woo Hah!! Remix (2012) Free download

Cockney Nutjob does a fine job of a ghetto funking-up Busta Rhymes’ debut solo single from all the way back in ’96. Curious how the memory works – I always remembered the original as being quite full-on but when I listened to it after hearing this it had all the impact of being smacked in the face with cotton wool. Perhaps it was the video with Rhymes’ face – well – all up in your face – that gave it an illusory impression of lairyness. No need

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Fine Young Cockney (2012) Free download

This week’s ‘Captain Scott of breaks award’ goes to Cockney Nutjob who proudly spliced She Drives Me Crazy by eighties soul-pop trio Fine Young Cannibals with the Jigga’s 99 Problems only to have me cheerfully crush his sense of achievement by pointing out to him that DJ ‘Amundsen’ Angelo had got there a year before him. You can imagine the frustration. Still, at least he hasn’t died in the
