MORLACK: My Spin Is Ur Drama

Morlack reckons his spin is your drama on his new Funk Blasters drop entitled – er – My Spin Is Ur Drama – and he’s not talking about his washing machine or his ability to manipulate political cock-ups into media triumphs either. Nope, it’s another anything goes (as long as it’s broadly 80s-funk-influenced party breakbeat) Morlack EP with the samples blender in full effect. Thus while the beats

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

MORLACK: Closet Freak EP

MORLACK: Closet Freak EPSurely the most prolific artist on BBP’s roster – even if he’s been relatively quiet of late – Morlack returns with brand new EP, Closet Freak. And if you know Morlack, you’ll know that’s surely an ironic title since he’s never been shy about being freaky with the beats. This one opens with a pumping synth-drenched bass n breaks edit of Motown classic Papa Was Rolling Stone while the

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits Vol. IV

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits Vol. IVThe cheekiness of Morlack knows no bounds as he returns to his favourite musical decade to re-vitalise a quintuplet of eighties R&B cuts for Cheeky Edits Vol. IV. Armed with his digital scalpel and the very latest in crisp breakbeats he’s set to work on cuts by O’Bryan, Al Jarreau, Konk, Herbie Hancock and Lizzy Mercier Descloux extending and boosting each until they’re fit to go

MORLACK: Good To Go-Go Vol. VII

MORLACK: Good To Go-Go Vol. VIIBack on home territory after the nu-disco-inflected excursions of May’s Good Times EP, Morlack returns to his beloved DC Go-Go as source material for Good To Go-Go Vol. VII. This eight-tracker opens with Stevie getting some assistance from Little Benny & The Masters on Robin Practice and then it’s roto-tom-ago-go on track two’s laid-back poolside splice of Pleasure, Jaco Pastorius

MORLACK: Good Times EP

MORLACK:  Good Times EPAnyone looking for a good time could do worse than seek out the latest EP on BBP from Morlack entitled – er – Good Times. Opener and title track Good Times, finds Charli Baltimore getting the buzzsaw bass treatment – something which is also applied on nu-disco rap nugget Sexy Shine and then there’s Freak Biatch 2020 which revisits an old Morlack rerub of Marie Franklin. Pick of the

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

MORLACK: Skanky Bank Vol. II EP

MORLACK: Skanky Bank Vol. II EPAre you getting the feeling there’s an island influence on the four new cuts from Morlack that comprise Skanky Bank Vol. II? The cover art’s a bit of a giveaway after all, the Funk Blasters’ Betty Davis label logo which seems to have swapped heads, old-school Worzel Gummidge style, (“‘allo Aunt Sally, I’ll just get me rasta ‘ead on”), and the rest of it features palm trees silhouetted against a

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

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits EP Vol. 3

MORLACK: Cheeky Edits EP Vol. 3Somewhat more than a year after Vol. 2, Morlack returns with Cheeky Edits Vol. 3. Bet you can’t guess what that features. Of course you can! And I bet you can make a fairly good prediction of which decade he plunders for his source material too. Yes it does start with ‘eight’ and end with ‘ies’! There’s no mistaking that synth sound on Rhumba – a fully hopped-up bass version of Johnny Dynell and
