CHAMBER: Flip Like A Renegade (2014)

Flip Like A Renegade ChamberHow about a little Chamber music? No, not that kind. Relative Dimensions decide that warping great electro blues-funk break Flip Like A Renegade from Beat Kitchen resident Chamber was just too good not to remix. So they’ve had it remixed – by Doc Moody who flips like Aphrodite, El Bomba who flips like 90s big beat, Leygo who flips like he’s a ghetto Robert Johnson, Sketi who flips like he’s

Google ‘cloud watching’ (like I just did) and you’ll probably find that the first search result is the Cloud Appreciation Society (‘Uniting cloud lovers around the world’) who are, “fighting the banality of blue sky thinking.” Unsure whether this was some sort of joke or whether there really are people apart from meteorologists out there that interested in clouds I had a quick tour around the site and

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 3 (2013)

Third time’s the charm as Vol. 3 of Scoured Cream wobbles all the way to the bank not to mention, on past form, all the way to the top of Juno’s breakbeat chart, if that hasn’t happened already. It wouldn’t be a Scour release if it began without a glitch though and this one is no exception as J-Sound steps up with the swinging Glitch Up Funk Right which encapsulates the retro wobble flavour

BOOTY FRUIT: Cherry Bombs Vol. 1 (2013)

The latest installment of fruity booty from the Booty Fruit crew is the first in their new series (Cherry Bombs Vol. 1) which sees them lobbing four mashed-up hip-hop bangarangers right atcha.

TREMENDO: Dirty Funk Vol. 1 (2012)

Rating: ★★★★★
That the raison d’etre of Vol. 1 of this new series on Telephunken‘s Tremendo label seems to be to put the funk back into ghetto funk will come as no end of relief to those who were wondering if that ‘f’ word was (with honourable exceptions) becoming as redundant as the ‘funky’ in ‘funky’ house always has been. Dirty Funk opens with Trotter & Telephunken getting all stank with the
