SECOND HAND AUDIO: Yes, We’re Open EP

SECOND HAND AUDIO Yes, We're OpenHey what’s that musty smell? Kind of like body odour with the underlying tang of piss? Just kidding! They might be called Second Hand Audio but there’s no way you’ll find the works of DJP and the Breakbeat Junkie nestled between Sonia ‘s Everybody Knows LP and Now That’s What I Call Music 21 in your local Cats Protection League shop – and that is because they have a new EP out –

LACK JEMMON: Lack Jemmon EP (2017)

LACK JEMMON:  Lack Jemmon EPLatest on vinyl 12″ from BBP is the Lack Jemmon EP. No guesses who that’s by. And so it is that the Hungarian pairing deliver a four-tracker for masses – quite literally actually as it kicks off with a remix of a certain ska-influenced pop tune by Simon Cowell puppet, Olly Murs. And if you thought that displayed formidable chutzpah, check the next tune which redefines the very concept of

HIPHOPPAPOTAMUS: Samba Junglist EP (2017)

HIPHOPPAPOTAMUS:  Samba Junglist EP (2017)Not typically within the monkey’s remit, junglist pressha does occasionally make a fleeting appearance on MB as part of remix packages or when there’s a heavy crossover with funk, soul, hip-hop, reggae and breaks as in the case of Hiphoppapotamus’s Samba Junglist EP. Broadly under the drum n bossa or, more accurately, the sambass umbrella (yes, they’re both really a
