GHETTO FUNK presents: ROAST BEATZ (2016)

Roast Beatz Ghetto Funk GFPD27When roasting beats, it’s important to remember that there are a number of schools of thought regarding method. If you are DJ Roast Beatz for example, you favour imbuing your offerings with a rich helping of hip-hop and disco flavour as well as the crispest of snares – while at the same time experimenting with other influences to create a richly seasoned and well-cooked fusion. Thus we

GHETTO FUNK presents: MEGAN HAMILTON & THE BERMUDAS (GFPD22)(2015) Free download

Megan Hamilton Bermudas Ghetto FunkI think it’s fair to say that the world of ghetto funky breaks is massively under-represented by women – even in the vocal department where they mostly make an appearance – and it’s also fair to say that the world of ghetto funky breaks isn’t massively represented stateside either. This being the case, it’s pretty lucky for women and the states that Twin Cities producer/ vocalist Megan

GHETTO FUNK presents: WBBL (GFP019)(2015)

WBBL Ghetto Funk presents GFP019Another day, another wobble. I mean WBBL. A man named after one of the defining characteristics of the ghetto funk sound and who makes frequent use of both that and the other two i.e. crunchy breaks and choice samples – here exemplified in this four tracker. Amid the grind on Stephen!, appears to be a chopped up bit of Will Smith’s Wild Wild West, there’s some vintage

GHETTO FUNK presents: DJ MAARS & TOM SHOWTIME (2014)

DJ Maars Tom Showtime Ghetto Funk presentsRating: ★★★★★ Reggae hip-hop double act DJ Maars and Tom Showtime display irrefutable evidence of doctorates in advanced weaponry design with yet another killer low-end genre-splicing four-tracker.

GHETTO FUNK PRESENTS: Bring The Boom (GFP16)(2013)

Some of you may be aware that Bim and Ben lead bands with brooms and furthermore that Ben’s band bangs and Bim’s band booms. While you’re pondering that, here’s something else that booms – Ghetto Funk‘s forthcoming Bring The Boom EP. JFB & Dancefloor Outlaws give Desmond Dekker some dnb boom, Timothy Wisdom gives LL Cool J some ghetto funk boom (don’t call it a comeback)

GHETTO FUNK presents: SLYNK (GFP15)(2013)

Slynk by name he may be, but there’s nothing furtive about his music. Indeed, far from skulking quietly in the background this man’s latest four track EP is more likely to be found sashaying flamboyantly down Main Street in the electro-disco-boogie district of Breaksville, with everything hanging out. Like samples for example – which are cut up, and liberally incorporated into every track

GHETTO FUNK presents: B-SIDE (GFP14)(2013)

The second of two exercises in breaks n bass wobble from the Ghetto Funk stable this month and this one’s from B-Side mixing and matching his classic hip-hop and funk samples over warping bottom end noise. It’s packed to the gills with hammering synth bass and a surfeit of moments for the kids to grab mates excitedly and go, ‘wait for it – here’s the drop!’ (or indeed float one of those

GHETTO FUNK presents: BASEMENT FREAKS (GFPD)(2013) Free download

Six million ways to roll and here’s two of them for free download as the mighty Basement Freaks turns up on the mighty Ghetto Funk label. There’s lots of California love here as he appropriates a veritable smorgasbord of West Coast samples including, er, Tupac’s California Love itself on Clap Ya Hands. Oh and he forcibly unites both coasts by including the decidedly ‘New York’ Busta Rhymes on

GHETTO FUNK presents: FATHER FUNK (GFPD13)(2013) Free download from 13.2.13

Father Funk‘s name always sounds to me like a slightly testy personification of the greatest musical genre known to man (“Do you think I’m made of funk?”, “Funk doesn’t grow on trees you know”, “I’m not sleeping, I’m just resting my funk” etc. etc.) which, is ironic because his music is the very thing to prompt just such a testy personification to tell the ghetto funk kids to, “Turn that bloody

SOME DJ: Ghetto Funk Presents (GFPD08) (2012) – Free download

Latest in a run of freebie EPs from the mighty Ghetto Funk machine is this four-tracker from Some DJ. It would have gone up a lot earlier but for my personal battle with the mighty Apple Macintosh machine. All I can say is there’s a letter heading to California you smug-faced, air-conditioned wankers РI know where you fucking live. More difficult to track down might be Some DJ
