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?┬áThe 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

MORLACK: Bluff

MORLACK: Bluff No frontin’ from Morlack as he delivers a new party breaks LP, the thirteen-track Bluff. The producer is one of the few scene players who actually troubles to knock out whole albums and not only is this his ninth full-length effort (thus surely giving anyone else’s record in the genre a thorough trouncing) he continues to maintain an envious level of consistency. Those familiar with

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

MORLACK: Pull Up

MORLACK: Pull UpIt had been relatively quiet from the Morlack camp over the last year or so but one of party breaks’ most prolific producers seems to be ramping up his productivity again with two EPS in the last month. The first was Katakana Edits Vol. 83, the second is this one – Pull Up. And as with its predecessor, it finds Morlack stepping outside of his DC Go-go comfort zone, this time into the

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
