EWAN HOOZAMI: Through With Love (2012) Free download

Ewan Hoozami gets all post-modern and samples himself (well alright, his band Syte & Sound) on sweet trip-glitch-hop freebie Through With Love. Heart hurting? Are you spending the day moping about a darkened flat too depressed to dress? Can’t believe that special person has been swinging for years behind your back and has a well-documented ‘amateur’ career on the

VARIOUS: Bulabeats Four Zero (BB0040) (2012)

For many, reaching forty means a flabby gut, spending money you don’t have on a leather jacket and sports car you don’t need and staring at life’s traffic lights wondering where and when it all went so wrong. Not Bulabeats though. Nope, they’re hitting the dancefloor with a ten-track blast of dirty-ass bass and breaks. But maybe that’s because this is a celebration of Bulabeats’ fortieth release rather than their fortieth

BOX ROCKET: Avalanche Psychiatrist (2011) Free download

Long before Frape, happy-slapping and shanking innocent passersby, the box rocket (along with sniffing glue and a gentle game of British bulldog) was one of many forms of more innocent youth entertainment. Oh wait – that was a pocket rocket wasn’t it. Still, you wouldn’t want to call your mid-tempo breaks project ‘pocket rocket’ nowadays though (if you were Ewan Hoozami and Dave Remix – as indeed Box Rocket are) since

JOHNNY PLUSE: The Market Street Cut Up (2011) Digital release/ remixes

Not quite the East End gang brawl it sounds like, Johnny Pluse nevertheless brings along enough remixers for this digital re-release of 2009’s The Market Street Cut Up to almost make it worth starting a ruck. There are eleven mixes available from the likes of (deep breath) Ewan Hoozami, Quincy Jointz, Hong Kong Ping Pong, Totalcult, Mustbeat Crew, Rory Hoy, Dusty Tonez and Funkanomics. Gang leader Pluse’s skankin’ 2011

PULPFUSION: Street Art EP (2011)

The Street Art EP is a quality six-tracker from Pulpfusion (the man who bought you Sex, Drums, Funk And Roll and ‘that’ video from earlier in the year) which the PR would have you believe that is a collection of “downtempo breaks.” Listening to the Poison-era, Prodigy-style sound-graffiti of the title-track original and remixes by Frenic and Ewan Hoozami (and especially this

LOVE MUSIC, HATE RACISM & CULT MUSIC present: Funk Against Fascism (2011)

There are many reasons to reject fascism in its many forms – the one-dimensional, ‘might is right’ attitude, the staggering lack of logic in its ideological arguments and crucially – the shit music. Wagner and Skrewdriver? Christ! Enter breakbeat deejay Totalcult who (in collaboration with Love Music, Hate Racism has been marshalling the rebel forces

PULPFUSION: Sex, Drums, Funk & Roll EP (2011) + video,

Forget Swizz Beats – this is all about Swiss beats for it’s from the land of expensive watches and expansive bank accounts that PulpFusion hails. The Sex, Drums Funk & Roll EP finds Mr Terence Thony (there’s an umlaut on the ‘o’ but not on my keyboard) indulging his love of big ass drum breaks, funky samples and rock guitars in quite spectacular fashion. Oh yeah – and sex

JOHNNYPLUSE feat. Youth Mass: Drinkin In The Sun (2011) + video

Drinking in the sun! It always seems like such a good idea doesn’t it? There you are with your workmates by a river or something, supping a cold pint, full of bonhomie…and then it all goes blurry. You ‘come to’ sunfried, dehydrated, slumped on cardboard boxes in a piss-stinking shop doorway with a half a kebab down your front wondering when it got dark and where everyone is. Johnnypluse seems to have captured the euphoric

EWAN HOOZAMI: Cutty Limb (2011) – Free download

Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down. You will though, if you hear this latest remix by Bristol beats merchant Ewan Hoozami through the bass bins on a proper sound system. Alright, so this wouldn’t be the first time Cutty Ranks’ Limb By Limb acapella has made the rounds but anyone who knows anything about music knows that a classic vocal excuseth not a shitty beat. Luckily, Hoozami knows a thing or too about beatsmithery and he forged a beast here in plenty of time for

EWAN HOOZAMI: Straight Out Of Charleston (2011) – free download

In which Bristol’s Ewan Hoozami enthusiastically wheels his trolley down the ‘genre aisle’ of the music producer’s supermarket helping himself liberally to dubstep, jazz, ghetto funk and a couple of special offer acapellas from Masta Ace and MJ, among others. The result is Straight Out Of Charleston an entity which builds and builds throughout its duration in a very big, soulful and totally twenty-eleven kind of way
