DJ CLAIRVO: El Clarividente

When better to release an album redolent of tropical heat than at the point in the year when the nights are longest and coldest? And that is precisely what the MustBeat crew’s DJ Clairvo has done with El Clarividente having used his powers of prescience to judge it the opportune moment to collect nearly a decade’s worth of Latin-influenced party breakbeat gear together and unleash the

BASSCHIMP: Kunta Kinte/ Bun Down The Lights

It says here that Basschimp is a ‘Brighton-based swinger bass-jockey’. Luckily for readers, he’s also a dj/ producer too as regulars may have noticed over the last few years. Right now, his latest release is a double helping of dancefloor-influenced breaks in the shape of Kunta Kinte and Bun Down The Lights. The first of these is apparently the more newfangled of the two

KID PANEL & BLADE: Freak/ Weedee Funk (2017)

Kid Panel & Blade revamp a couple of oldies for 2017 on this new Mustbeat drop. The first is Freak which shares a name with Chic’s most famous cut and includes samples from Sugarhill Gang and Ultramagnetic MC (among others) employing pounding drums that keep it just the big beat side of house and take it back to – oohh at least 1997. Weedee Funk on the other hand features a more

FREETHINKER FUNK ESSENCE: Record Store (2017)

Record Store Freethinker Funk EssenceGerman breaks-man Freethinker Funk Essence brings the essence of his freethinking approach to the funk once more on his Record Store EP. The three-tracker kicks off with the appropriately named spy-funky The Spy Of Mrs Lee which pits a moody Rhodes against itchy wah-wah and horns, follows up with the blaxploitation funk of the title track and closes with the jazz-funky Quentin’s Lost

THE FUNK FURY: Like (2016)

funk-fury-like-epFuelled perhaps by all that rage, The Funk Fury dares to explore the twilight zone of breakbeat house on the opening title track to his Like EP which employs the sort of synths typical of the devil’s music to vie with chipmunk vocal samples over rolling drums. This is followed by Birdy where synth-powered 80s electro business plays out over heavier drums while the buzzsaw

GROOVE MIND: Rock The Party (2016)

Rock The Party Groove MindGroove Mind is the new Italian signing on Hungarian label Mustbeat but music knows no boundaries and Rock The Party is a timezone-crossing slab of bass-n-synth heavy glitch-funk adorned with vocal snatches of Busta Rhymes and possessed of 40-grit sonic abrasive properties.

FRANKEE MORE: The Funk Chamber EP (2016)

The Funk Chamber EP Frankee MoreFrankee says: make it heavier and louder and put more wobble on it. Yeah it’s a bit long for a t-shirt – even a big white baggy one but you get the point. Frankee More likes it to bang loud. Welcome to his funk chamber or, more accurately, his The Funk Chamber EP which resonates with so much buzzsaw bass it actually registered as global seismographic activity recently. There’s still a bit of

FREETHINKER FUNK ESSENCE: The Emanuelle Jam EP (2015)

Emmanuelle Jam EP Freethinker Funk EssenceSay the name ‘Emmanuelle’ to people over a particular age and it conjures images of a certain series of racy, soft focus seventies movies. This being the case, the minds of said people can only boggle at what ‘Emmanuelle Jam‘ could possibly be referring to. While certain people ponder that, let’s consider Freethinker Funk Essence‘s The Emmanuelle Jam EP a.k.a the percussive

HANZEE: HaleLuisa EP (2015)

HaleLuisa EP HanzeeHaleLuisa from Hungary’s Hanzee (try saying that when you’re pissed) is the latest drop from the MustBeat label and sees the Budapest breaksman start off with some pumping, insectoid electro-glitch, venture into glitchy P-Funk territory for American Dream and journey from thence into utter glitch darkness on Jive Step. The fourth cut on this four tracker is an Andy Taylor remix of the
