KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 109 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 109 (MORLACK)At least as big a regular on Katakana Edits as he is on Breakbeat Paradise or even his own label Funk Blasters, Morlack now presides over Vol. 109 of Katakana Edits. A five-tracker, this one opens, in not unaccustomed manner, with the beefed-up eighties boogie of Anticipation providing a whistle wetter to the approach of the EP – if not always to the genre of the source material – as you’ll hear

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 98 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 98 (MORLACK)MB regulars will know that nary a month goes by without a release from the super-prolific Morlack and equally that rarely do more than a few of the equally prolific Katakana Edits volumes come out without Morlack having provided the music. By happy coincidence, it seems that by the time the Katakana crew got around to planning Vol. 98 (yes, 98!) Morlack had more than enough edits

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 94 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 94 (MORLACK)If Private Eye released Katakana Edits they would definitely release Vol. 94 which – once again – features the work of party breaks’ very own ‘Mr Prolific’ – Morlack. Actually, this four-tracker has been out since 20 December but you know how it gets at Christmas. Ironically, now the party’s over, it’s all party action on this. Opener Wipe Mo is a

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 88 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 88 (MORLACK)Morlack on Katakana Vol. 88? Didn’t MB already cover this? Nope, that was Katakana Edits Vol. 83 – also featuring Morlack, a mere two months ago. They don’t hang around (Vol. 89 is already out!) and neither does he – unlike the monkey who likes to take a holiday every now and then – hence the late love for this. This time it’s heavy party breaks-cum-nu-disco re-works of Tim Maia

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 83 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 83 MORLACKNow on an incredible Vol. 83, the Katakana Edits series once more features breakbeat’s go-go king, Morlack, though on this occasion he’s heading in a funky direction that’s less DC-centric. First up is the brisk Jimmy Sabater-sampling Here Comes The Hook which sets a very funky precedent that is ably matched by the squelchy groove of Sossego – a heavyweight rerub of an already very groovy

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 68 (MORLACK) + ‘Just A Lil Action’ Free download

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 68 (MORLACK)Katakana Edits – blink and you miss ’em! Honestly, the last time the monkey covered a drop from this edits label was Vol. 63 in May this year which featured Morlack. A mere two months later and they’re already on Vol. 68 which – er – features the ever productive Morlack again. Obviously, it being himself, you might be expecting something in the way of DC go-go

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 63 (MORLACK) + Jungle Lion – Free download

Leaving his beloved DC go-go at home for a change, Morlack is nevertheless lured out of his den with the promise of a whole EP to himself in the form of Katakana Edits 63. 63!. I can’t keep up – they were only on Vol. 51 in October! Still, all that aside, Morlack delivers a set of four beefy edits – bookended by the disco-friendly pounding proto-house of Chic/ Whitney mash Your Love and

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 51 (THE WORLDSTYLERS & DJ CLAIRVO)(2017)

KATAKANA EDITS:  Vol. 51 (THE WORLDSTYLERS & DJ CLAIRVO)(2017)Time for a Hungarian double-header as The Worldstylers lay it down Latin style in collaboration with DJ Clairvo for the four-track Vol. 51 of the long-running Katakana Edits series. First up is the appropriately-titled Hello Everybody which provides suitably sinuous samba antics to engage the wallflowers and then, having got people on the floor, it’s all about the uptempo Latin disco

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 38 (2016)

Vol 38 Katakana EditsAre you a soul man? Do you know anyone who’s a soul man? Timewrap does. He knows Mr Vragz and between them they’ve got soul fingers as they rework soul classic – er – Soul Finger into re-energised Hammond breaks workout Soul Fingerz. It sounds like Big Boss Man after they’ve sampled and eaten themselves. Also comes accompanied by much mellower Timewrap outing Jalec because

KATAKANA EDITS: Vols. 35 & 36 (2015)

Vol-35-36-Katakana-EditsIt’s the Katakana Edits express again already! Vol. 35 sees a four-to-the-floor production face-off between Fabiolous Barker who goes the epic disco edit route (nothing here much under six minutes) for three tracks before Amir Perry comes along and submits a dub disco edit of Sandy Gaye’s Watch The Dog and – not to be outdone on length – an even more dubbed-out six
