PHIBES: Raw 2 The Floor EP + ‘Ain’t No Thing’ A Glitch Swing Collection (2017)

Apparently not ones to drop merely one thing when they can be releasing a three track EP on legendary breaks label Bomb Strikes at the same time as putting out a self-released ten track album on their bandcamp, the Phibes boys have done precisely that this February. The Raw 2 The Floor EP finds the pair open with the heavy artillery of the title track upon which skeletal beats vie with

PHIBES: I Got A Woman (2017 Remix)(2017) Ltd. free download

i-gotta-woman-phibesI don’t know – Ray Charles got a woman, Kanye got a gold digga – er – I mean a Kardashian, and many previous producers and their dogs have versions of each and sometimes both at the same time. Saucy. Not wanting to be left out of such a writhing mass, Phibes have just launched their own take on things. They start out by scratching (there’s cream for that), get Ray involved, then

PHIBES: Ghetto Beats Vol. 2 (2016)

Ghetto Beats Vol 2 PhibesIt’s time to feel the Phibes again. I mean the vibes. I mean the Phibes vibes…I mean…oh whatever – what’s important is the Falmouth brothers finally follow up Ghetto Beats Vol. 1 with – well – with Ghetto Beats Vol. 2. As before the pair nab classic funk and hip-hop and filter them through the ghetto funk prism to emerge on the other side drenched in wobble and heavyweight

PHIBES: Ghetto Beats Vol. 1 (2015) + Free download ‘Funk Soul Brother’

Ghetto Beats Vol 1 PhibesThey might have arrived at the party later than some but Falmouth boys and full-time ghetto funk commandos Phibes are making up for lost time. Here they drag Alan Hawkshaw and Sam & Dave grinding and wobbling into the twenty-first century and just for good measure throw in a bit of Joe Budden. Ghetto Beats Vol. 1 (for this is where you’ll find such bass-heavy antics) thus finds label

SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 5 (2015)

Scoured Cream Vol 5 Scour RecordsIt’s time to get creamy again boys and girls. Why? Because Vol.5 of Scoured Cream, the ongoing series of wobbly, glitchy breakbeat butterphat from Scour Records is imminent! As usual there’s plenty of buzzsaw bass-synth antics and indeed the Bear Twists/ Father Funk/ Phibes/ WBBL opening quartet is business as usual in this regard. Where things start to get interesting for the

PHIBES: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2015) Free download

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Phibes…And for their next trick Falmouth’s Phibes move in for a bit of the ‘ol ‘kiss kiss bang bang’ with that High Contrast cut from 2007 that can’t decide if it wants to be trip-hop or ‘liquid’ dnb. You know the one – that’s it – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Just for jollies the boys make it so this remix can’t decide if it wants to sit on the fence between trip-hop and big beat or be a snarling glitch monster. Although

CARO EMERALD: You Don’t Love Me (PHIBES remix) (2015)

You Don't Love Me Caro Emerald Phibes remixIf you thought that Cockney Nutjob cut was the last of the swingy wobbles tonight, think again! For here are Nutjob’s label mates Phibes with their latest – an electro breaks take on Charleston-jazz style cut You Don’t Love Me from Dutch chanteuse Caro Emerald and her 2010 LP Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor LP. Alright, so it’s been out for a minute. That’s no excuse for

Gettin In Trouble PhibesThere’ll be no getting in trouble on ghetto funky dancefloors for Phibes with their new Lou Rawls-sampling freebie Gettin’ In Trouble brought to the masses for their download pleasure in association with Scour Records. Surely, there’s been some sort of occasion? There certainly has, Falmouth-based Phibes are now fully paid up members of the er-Falmouth based Scour Records crew. The

RAM JAM: Black Betty (PHIBES remix)(2014)

Black Betty PhibesPhibes take on one-hit wonders Ram Jam and their version of Black Betty for a bit of heavy blues-rock-powered ghetto glitch remix action here. The precise meaning of the eponymous ‘black betty’ of the title is a matter for speculation and has been variously interpreted over the decades as referring to a bottle of whiskey, a musket, a whip or a penitentiary transfer wagon

PHIBES: Gold Woman (2014) Free download

Gold Woman PhibesShe gives me money; she takes my money; she’s a kind of friend; she’s a trifling friend…She’s a Gold Woman – that’s what she is. To put it another way, she’s what you get when you combine (as South west-based production team Phibes have done) a lot of Ray with a little bit of ‘Ye (not to mention a dash of Ludacris and Missy Elliot) into a musical alloy of bouncy-bouncy ghetto-swing-hop action
