MORLACK: My Spin Is Ur Drama

Morlack reckons his spin is your drama on his new Funk Blasters drop entitled – er – My Spin Is Ur Drama – and he’s not talking about his washing machine or his ability to manipulate political cock-ups into media triumphs either. Nope, it’s another anything goes (as long as it’s broadly 80s-funk-influenced party breakbeat) Morlack EP with the samples blender in full effect. Thus while the beats

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits Vol. IV

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits Vol. IVThe cheekiness of Morlack knows no bounds as he returns to his favourite musical decade to re-vitalise a quintuplet of eighties R&B cuts for Cheeky Edits Vol. IV. Armed with his digital scalpel and the very latest in crisp breakbeats he’s set to work on cuts by O’Bryan, Al Jarreau, Konk, Herbie Hancock and Lizzy Mercier Descloux extending and boosting each until they’re fit to go

MORLACK: Good To Go-Go Vol. VII

MORLACK: Good To Go-Go Vol. VIIBack on home territory after the nu-disco-inflected excursions of May’s Good Times EP, Morlack returns to his beloved DC Go-Go as source material for Good To Go-Go Vol. VII. This eight-tracker opens with Stevie getting some assistance from Little Benny & The Masters on Robin Practice and then it’s roto-tom-ago-go on track two’s laid-back poolside splice of Pleasure, Jaco Pastorius

MORLACK: Skanky Bank Vol. II EP

MORLACK: Skanky Bank Vol. II EPAre you getting the feeling there’s an island influence on the four new cuts from Morlack that comprise Skanky Bank Vol. II?┬áThe cover art’s a bit of a giveaway after all, the Funk Blasters’ Betty Davis label logo which seems to have swapped heads, old-school Worzel Gummidge style, (“‘allo Aunt Sally, I’ll just get me rasta ‘ead on”), and the rest of it features palm trees silhouetted against a


MR BRISTOW & BENNY SILVER: Stupid EPLast heard of touting their wares as a duo nearly a full five years ago, Mr Bristow and Benny Silver return this month with their new Stupid EP.
“What’s stupid about it?”
Nothing – that’s the EP’s name!
What’s the EP’s name?”
Not what; Stupid.

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits EP Vol. 3

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits EP Vol. 3Somewhat more than a year after Vol. 2, Morlack returns with Cheeky Edits Vol. 3. Bet you can’t guess what that features. Of course you can! And I bet you can make a fairly good prediction of which decade he plunders for his source material too. Yes it does start with ‘eight’ and end with ‘ies’! There’s no mistaking that synth sound on Rhumba – a fully hopped-up bass version of Johnny Dynell and


MORLACK: Bluff No frontin’ from Morlack as he delivers a new party breaks LP, the thirteen-track Bluff. The producer is one of the few scene players who actually troubles to knock out whole albums and not only is this his ninth full-length effort (thus surely giving anyone else’s record in the genre a thorough trouncing) he continues to maintain an envious level of consistency. Those familiar with

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. VI

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. VIOk so here’s your latest lesson in DC go-go from Morlack – surely the music’s biggest fan (not to mention biggest proponent of it) outside Washington DC itself – with another massive payload of 80s-influenced beats. Imagine an A Skillz entirely fixated on the music brought to the world by the likes of Chuck Brown and later Experience Unlimited and Trouble Funk and you’re

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits Vol. 2

MORLACK:  Cheeky Edits Vol. 2 Cheeky Edits Vol. 2 eh? Don’t beat about the bush Morlack, say what you really mean! Oh, right, sorry – you did. Cheeky edits of what though? Knowing you, I’m guessing vintage funk from the late 70s to late 80s or perhaps even early 90s at a stretch – but who specifically? Let’s see now…Trouble Funk? No? I see – stepping out of our comfort zone are we eh? What about Parliament

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. V

Who better to deliver the thirtieth release on the Funk Blasters label than the head honcho himself, Morlack? And what better release than Vol. V of Good To Go Go, the latest instalment of a series of heavyweight breaks which chops up Morlack’s beloved DC Go-Go a.k.a the music which has had Washington D.C. rocking since the funk era. Good To Go-Go Vol. V turns the party out with five cuts
