QDUP & WARP 9 feat. FLEX MATTHEWS: Bodyrock (2016)

Bodyrock Qdup Warp 9 Flex MatthewsQdup, Warp 9 and Flex Matthews get the full lock on the Bodyrock with their new collaborative single, and it’s every bit the slice of twenty-first century synth-drenched slice of bass-funk electric boogaloo you’d expect from the name. On the mic, Matthews lays down the gauntlet for fellow emcees and there’s even a brooding synth dropout to allow the competition to contemplate their game. Warp

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Paradise Breaks Vol. IV (2016)

Paradise Breaks Vol IV BBPImagine if you will, a tropical island consisting of nothing more than a conveniently dancefloor-sized clearing and a couple of palm trees. Floating above cloud level at sunset. Oh yeah – and the conical under-surface of said island reveals the entire structure to be nothing less than a giant speaker. Someone clearly has, for this is the cover of the latest compilation of party breakbeat glory in the

SLAPPIN PLASTIC & MC SHURESHOCK: It Shocks Parts 1 & 2 (2016)

It Shocks Slappin Plastic MC ShureshockSlappin Plastic and MC Shureshock team-up for a lively slice of Oz-hop with single It Shocks – a track packing so much party punch that it had to be released through two different labels. Sugarbeat are in charge of the split personality affair that is Part 2 on which The Original Rude Boy mix can’t make up its mind whether it wants to be a garage-y breaks affair or a garage-y house

DISCOBETA: Bring It To Me (2016)

Bring It To Me DiscobetaCan’t get enough of that ghetto funky stuff? It’s time to welcome back DiscoBeta then who take the less-travelled path of subtlety in said genre with the lightest of touches when it comes to applying the wobble. Of course this means foregrounding – well – other stuff – instead and Bring It To Me manages not only to funk and wobble but also to skank which results in an

TOSSES: Tosses feat. RAYNA (2016)

Tosses feat RaynaIt seems MC Rayna‘s so busy these days with her band Antiplastic that there’s little time for the sort of sterling guest vox that have graced beats by the likes of Badboe, Skeewiff, Jiggyjoe, Sammy Senior, Tonic, and Tosses & Varvez. Luckily Ale Tosses of the latter has used all his wiles to get Rayna on two new cuts. What to call the LP though? I know – Tosses feat. Rayna! Doo Wop is
