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! As usual there’s plenty of buzzsaw bass-synth antics and indeed the Bear Twists/ Father Funk/ Phibes/ WBBL opening quartet is business as usual in this regard. Where things start to get interesting for the

VIDA G feat. KRSA: Moonshiners (2014)

Moonshiners Vida G KRSANynfus Corp has only been defunct as a production proposition for five minutes but former member Vida G is not letting that slow down his output for here he is with some finely distilled bottom-end heavy, bashment-tinged electro swing. That’ll be Moonshiners then. Of course, where there’s moonshine, everyone wants a piece of the action. Consequently, VG has had to cut remixers Hanzee


Bring Back The Funk Vol. 2 BBPRating: ★★★★★ And so it is that Badboe’s label Breakbeat Paradise Recordings brings back the funk (of the nu- and ghetto- varieties) for Vol. 2. By way of showing that this is a drop that means business we open with the return of Funktomas who provides a master-class in how to make ghetto funk with this pumping and downright nasty wobble edit of DJ Kool’s Let Me Clear My Throat. J-

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 4 (2014)

Scoured Cream Vol. 4Consider the number four for a moment: the number of the great elements – earth, air, fire and water; the number of ‘noble truths’ in the Buddhist philosophy and the number of letters in the Tetragrammaton. 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

J-SOUND: Super Nature (the remixes) (2013)

“Super nature the remixes god-damn!” Hmm – somehow that doesn’t sit quite as well with the beat as the simpler “Super nature god-damn” which J-Sound culled from the the Beasties’ Triple Trouble back in the summer for his Super Nature drop. Just as well, the two remix heads involved here (Badboe and Trotter) just messed around with the beat. Badboe fills in the sonic gaps in the comparatively sparse original with extra percussive

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 3 (2013)

Third time’s the charm as Vol. 3 of Scoured Cream wobbles all the way to the bank not to mention, on past form, all the way to the top of Juno’s breakbeat chart, if that hasn’t happened already. It wouldn’t be a Scour release if it began without a glitch though and this one is no exception as J-Sound steps up with the swinging Glitch Up Funk Right which encapsulates the retro wobble flavour

J-SOUND: Super Nature/ Fully Funked (2013)

Nice little two track release on Mustbeat here as J-Sound feels the funk on his first drop for the Hungarian label. First up is Super Nature whereon the Cardiff-based producer righteously plunders a couple of verse lyrics from the Beasties Triple Trouble to formulate a hook for a nu-ghetto-breaks bleepfest. Then he jumps on the mic himself to deliver a falsetto vocal turn for Fully Funked where

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 1 (2012)

Rating: ★★★★★
Spinforth‘s Soundcloud Scour is all grown up! Its now a record label as well as a means of saving thousands of lazy-bastard digital djs from mining soundcloud for the diamonds among the shite. This release is a bit like the free Scour really – only it’s not free. Well there’d be little point in starting a label if it was would there? You can expect the Scour traditions to be firmly upheld in

EL BOMBA: Cop Dat Shit (2012)

Hot on the heels of Basement Freaks’ Gold Digga is another breaks/ ghetto funker that pares an old hip-hop vocal hook down to its hookiest part though in this case the artist is El Bomba and the hook invites us to “Cop Dat Shit.” That’s ‘invite’ in the Mafia sense of course since, by the time you hear the words “cop dat shit,” you’ve already been ‘copping’ a minute of throbbing buzzsaw bassquake
