VARIOUS: Migrant Beat Foundation Vol. 1 (2016)

Migrant Beat FoundationHow bad are things in the Middle East? So bad that millions are leaving it for Europe – presumably because all those European arms sales to various brutal regimes have assured them of an open-armed welcome, not to mention all that colonial carving up and interference – the tail end of which is still within living memory – and which laid the basis for much contemporary strife

FORT KNOX FIVE: Whatcha Gonna Do (2015)

Whatcha Gonna Do Fort Knox FiveSome questions demand an answer – what are you going to do for example if DC crew Fort Knox Five come knocking and posit the idea of your remixing their Mustafa Akbar-featuring slab of disco Whatcha Gonna Do? The answer, if you’re Father Funk, is to apply filters and passes over an extended intro, insinuate a fair amount of wobble into the mix and get grinding

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 5 (2015)

Scoured Cream Vol 5 Scour RecordsIt’s time to get creamy again boys and girls. Why? Because Vol.5 of Scoured Cream, the ongoing series of wobbly, glitchy breakbeat butterphat from Scour Records is imminent!

Phenomenal Funk EP Father FunkFather Funk continues his current roll and I don’t mean that stale bap that he’s been surviving on during epic ‘computer vision syndrome’-inducing bouts on the music production software recently.

REGGIE WATTS: Fuck Shit Stack (FATHER FUNK remix)(2014) Video + free download

Fuck Shit Stack Father FunkRating: ★★★★★ On the original Fuck Shit Stack, Reggie Watts conducted a post-modern dissection of the lyrical content of much contemporary hip-hop and identified broad underlying patterns and themes like swearing, objectification of woman and general materialism – often bling and car-related.

SCOUR RECORDS: Freemixed Nuts Vol. 2 (2014)

Freemixed Nuts Vol. 2 Scour RecordsIt’s that time of the year when Scour Records show their love for all the love they’ve been receiving end during the rest of the year with Freemixed Nuts Vol. 2. How do they do this? Why (if the label logo is a clue at any rate) by delivering classic cuts (or ‘nuts’, if you will) into the scrabbling clawed hands and rodent-like teeth of various artists signed to the label. Kinky. Father Funk is

Oh and now also the number of the forthcoming volume of Scour RecordsScoured Cream series. And its name shall be Scoured Cream Vol. 4 – and the number of tracks
