TRU FUNK: Tasty Beats Vol. 5 (2014)

Tasty Beats Vol. 5 Tru FunkFuck Christmas 2014! Let’s party like it doesn’t need to involve ripoff shit in the shops, crap work parties and a bunch of tax-avoiding millionaires reworking a patronising ‘charity’ song about famine. Enter the Tru Funk label with some good time flavour on Tasty Beats Vol. 5. Green Jesus, Warson, Funkosol Beats, Jayl Funk and DJ Kid Stretch are all on hand to provide conspicuously

DJ KID STRETCH: Get It On The Floor (2014)

Get It On The Floor EP DJ Kid StretchGet It On The Floor? Whatever could DJ Kid Stretch be referring to on his new EP? Drugs? Sex? The experience of having your fresh fat laces trodden on by some blundering elephant with two left feet? Then again, perhaps it’s not the answer to a question. Maybe ‘it’ is your ass and he’s issuing a firm command. Cheeky. One thing is certain, either the disco breaks original or one of the disco breaks

TRU FUNK: Party Breaks: Essential Selection (2013)

In today’s internet-era, the public’s appetite for interesting ‘stuff’ is voracious and their memory of said ‘stuff’ so short that they’ve practically forgotten whatever it was they gawping/ listening/ mooing at in the second it took them to ‘swim’ from one side of the digital fishbowl to the other. Plus the amount of ‘stuff’ out there keeps increasing exponentially. In this environment, any record company that fails to market effectively is a

CHUDY: See You On The Floor (2013)

The latest from the Tru:Funk label is this drop See You On The Floor from Tru:Funk crew member Chudy. On it he neatly sidesteps the breaks/ ghetto funk cheese trap which is no mean feat given that he delivers four super disco breakin numbers with an eighties and even nineties (Keep The Beat for example) flavour at times. His four tracks come in the company of five remixes from

WACK RECORDS 11: Smov/ DJ Kid Stretch/ Prosper/ The Breakbeat Junkie/ DJP (2011)

It’s been a while but ‘Berry Geordie’ (a.k.a. producer Smoove of Smoove & Turrell) has a new Wack Records drop waiting in the wings – and this one comes with a theme. Do you hanker for that era when funk and soul was either busy morphing into or being superseded by four-to-the-floor beats and hip-hop was barely a twinkle in Kool Herc’s eye? Are you all about ‘leisure suit’/ nylon shirt-open-to-the-waist combos?

MANMADE Feature Funk Vol. 5

It’s the fifth volume from the Manmade Recordings crew and once again it’s label bosses CMC & Silenta who produce the best cut with the pneumatic genre-splicing monster Rock Da Riddim. Thankful as I am that the 90s big beat stylings of Vol. 4 have been left behind I’m not convinced that DJ Kid Stretch’s speedy breaks-plus-Moose-T loop is the way forward. Neither am I sure about Funkanomics’ On The Floor which, despite containing a sample of Tina Turner’s Funkier Than A Mosquito’s Tweeter comes on like a disco-Tyrannosaurus or Mr Fudge’s Damian Marley-fied Boot All Night – though my baby daughter had a bit of a boogie to that one so it can’t be all bad.
(PRESS RELEASE) Feature Funk Vol5 brings back the NuFunk to all you breakbeat and jungle fans out there…This very diversified Ep comes with tracks by CMC&Silenta, the well known DJ Kid Stretch, based in Thessaloniki, Greece, the German break beat stars Funkanomics and Canadian breaks artist funking up Seoul: Mr. Fudge.
CMC&Silenta thought it’s time for a nasty old school- jungle flavoured track for all the classic breaks fans. Next one is an unbelievable funky breaks track by well known Dj Kid Stretch, perfect for all you horny funky manmade- track lovers and already a bboy favourite track. He is main DJ in the Battle Of The Year Balkans bboy competition, DJ and producer of the Greek hip hop group “Warriorz” and “Warriorz Records” owner. With “On the floor”, Funkanomics splash their typical sound on fat beats once again. This tight production is sound from another galaxy, maybe the guys should have a place on MIB 3, alongside Michael Jackson and G.W.Bush?! OK, If you go to a small club in Seoul, take the brilliant DJ Mr.Fudge, ask Damien Marley to grab the Mic and squirrel it all together – you will get a driving reggae breakbeat tune like this one.
