JOHNNYPLUSE feat. MC COPPA: Never Get Old (2012)

Never Get Old is the second single off Johnnypluse’s forthcoming LP and finds him laying down a bedrock of fat breaks over which he juxtaposes what sounds like a gathering swarm of bees with a sweet piano hook while the ever-reliable MC Coppa ponders the shit life throws at you and delivers life-affirming couplets. Remixes come in the shape of the dark and bleepy

JOHNNYPLUSE feat. BASS NACHO: Back To The Future (2012)

New from Johnnypluse is Back To The Future. Basically a vehicle for Bass Nacho it sees the Floridian doing some of that there speed-toasting business over minimal skankin breaks and bass abrasive enough to get rid of all your rough edges with proper singing on a chorus all full of island sunshine horns. You get the original mix and a

JOHNNY PLUSE: The Market Street Cut Up (2011) Digital release/ remixes

Not quite the East End gang brawl it sounds like, Johnny Pluse nevertheless brings along enough remixers for this digital re-release of 2009’s The Market Street Cut Up to almost make it worth starting a ruck. There are eleven mixes available from the likes of (deep breath) Ewan Hoozami, Quincy Jointz, Hong Kong Ping Pong, Totalcult, Mustbeat Crew, Rory Hoy, Dusty Tonez and Funkanomics. Gang leader Pluse’s skankin’ 2011

JOHNNYPLUSE: Load Up On Guns (2011) – Free download

Never a man to let an opportunity pass him by, Bulabeats label boss Johnnypluse cashes in on the cashing-in of the twentieth anniversary of the release of Nirvana’s Nevermind album by putting out a cheeky retro breaks number that makes shameless use of ‘that’ guitar riff from Teen Spirit. Well, I say ‘cashes in’ – this one’s actually a free download

DUSTY TONEZ: Ghetto Maestro (2011)

Ghetto Maestro is the forthcoming release from Dusty Tonez and as more cultured readers will know, ‘maestro’ is Italian for ‘master.’ What is less well-known is that the same word appears in Irish Gaelic and, although there’s no direct translation, it approximates to ‘rather large and funky slice of wobbly bass.’ As you might expect therefore, the original mix here draws from funk, ragga and dubstep influences

In which Irish breaks bandit and Bulabeats label boss Johnnypluse gives The Apples’ jazz-funk version of Rage Against The Machine’s fire-starting anthem a touch of the breaks. Done, one suspects, without the knowledge of either band or their record labels and released for free – now that really is raging against the machine. How do you like them apples?

JOHNNYPLUSE feat. Youth Mass: Drinkin In The Sun (2011) + video

Drinking in the sun! It always seems like such a good idea doesn’t it? There you are with your workmates by a river or something, supping a cold pint, full of bonhomie…and then it all goes blurry. You ‘come to’ sunfried, dehydrated, slumped on cardboard boxes in a piss-stinking shop doorway with a half a kebab down your front wondering when it got dark and where everyone is. Johnnypluse seems to have captured the euphoric

JOHNNYPLUSE: Laser, Lasers, We Need More Lasers – 2011 + ‘It’s Some Craic’ free download

Here he is then, back once again like a renegade master – yes – it’s Irish beat assassin JohnnyPluse with new album Lasers, Lasers, We Need More Lasers – or (as it’s almost certainly destined to be known) Lasers. For those who aren’t in the know, JP is a man afflicted by ‘breaks’-ADHD – a little known disorder that I’ve just invented but which perfectly describes his clear conviction that there can never be enough breaks.

JOHNNYPLUSE: Skanky Bitch – 2011

Don’t worry, Irish breaks merchant and Bulabeats label boss Johnnypluse isn’t venting about some chick. The title of this, the second single from his forthcoming How Much For The Monkey LP is more a literal description of the track itself, ‘skanky’ in the sense of skankin’; ‘bitch’ conveying the monstrous rhythm section as in, ‘Damn! That bass is nasty!”
