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

MORLACK:  Keep That Funk EPThe long-running partnership between the Breakbeat Paradise label and a man who must surely be its most prolific signing, Morlack, continues unabated with the arrival of the latter’s Keep That Funk EP. But how precisely must that funk be kept? Well, given that it’s Morlack we’re talking about here, it must almost certainly be

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

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. V

Who better to deliver the thirtieth release on the Funk Blasters label than the head honcho himself, Morlack?

MORLACK: Ghetto Disco Vol. 2 (2017)

MORLACK:  Ghetto Disco Vol. 2 It seems like barely a minute since Morongroover and Mr Bristow popped the cherry of a new Breakbeat Paradise series – Ghetto Disco – and now here’s Morlack with Ghetto Disco Vol. 2. Being Morlack of course, he’s not only gone one track deeper than Vol. 1 (taking this to five tracks) but his ‘ghetto’ take on disco benefits from his magpie-like approach to sampling. Take in your

MORLACK: Beautiful Mistakes (2017)

MORLACK: Beautiful MistakesReports of Morlack’s death have been greatly exaggerated, it seems, since here he is in fine fettle with new LP, Beautiful Mistakes. But where has the former ‘busiest man in breaks’ been and what’s with that title anyway? Well, apparently he’s spent some time hanging out with Trotter in Brazil attending festivals in the middle of the jungle which – admittedly – is a pretty good

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

MORLACK: Good To Go Go Vol. IV (2016)

Good To Go Go Vol IV MorlackThere surely can’t be a man outside of Washington DC doing more to propagate a global love of DC go-go music than Morlack. His devotion to this regional Stateside blend of 70s funk and early hip-hop has been a massive influence on much of his work and is the prime focus of his Good To Go Go series which, with the arrival of this, is now on Vol. IV. Of course Morlack is a fully twenty-first century

Yep – it’s him – back once again like the renegade master with the first Funk Blasters drop in a while.
