BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Big Fat Mama Beats (2016)

Big Fat Mama Breakbeat ParadiseHaving done the ‘old’ (with the retro 90s-ish sound of the Badass Funk EP from earlier in the year), Breakbeat Paradise Recordings now do the ‘new’ assembling a seven-artist strong squad consisting of Discobeta, Mr Rich & Caretaker, Crashgroove, Wiccatron, Funky Boogie Brothers, Rory Hoy and Pulpfusion to take things musically bang-up-to-date with the Big Fat Mama Beats EP – all expectations (as

VARIOUS: Block Rockin Bulabeats (2015)

Block Rockin BulabeatsThere’s only a few weeks before the year closes – which means party time is expanding exponentially. What else to do then, if you are the Bulabeats label, but come back with another one of those Block Rockin Bulabeats. Or better still four of them. Thus Crashgroove wobbles-up Marlena Shaw on Ghetto Girl and the splendidly-named Barry Krishna has not a single problem providing

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Funk Bananas (2015)

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Get Up On Ya Feet Remixed (2014)

Get Up On Ya Feet Remixed Cockney NutjobCockney Nutjob‘s muscular dancefloor skank from November gets the remix treatment on the next drop from Radical Mixtape Recordings. Going in first are Phibes who doctor the original in a wub-wub-snarl stylee that gives it a sort of ‘insectoid-battle-droid cousin to the original’ air and then Maars goes in for sloppy seconds. If Phibes’ version was a cyborg then the Maartian version is like some sort

JOHNNYPLUSE: The Book Of Lies Remixed (2013) + The Prowler (Django party mix) Free download

If you’re a producer, it has become somewhat de rigeur of late, to follow the release of ‘the’ album (i.e. yours) with ‘the remix album’ – i.e. by ‘them’. You know, a crew of usually like-minded individuals who, the minute they get their grubby mitts on those stems, throw the owner a sly grin as if to say, ‘this shit is mine now and I’m going to go to town on it’ and then go to town on it.

CRASHGROOVE: Apollo EP (2013)

Here’s Crashgroove everybody – latest signing to Bulabeats and not to be confused with seminal hip-hop movie Krush Groove. As if you’d make that mistake with this lot of noisy shenanigans. The Apollo EP contains three tracks – the relative merits of which can, I believe, be conveyed by three different types of Apollo. In reverse order then: the snarling, ear-punishing, breakz-fest of closer Apollo
