PROSPER & STABFINGER: Fire In Me EP

PROSPER & STABFINGER:  Fire In Me EPCurrently turning out about one EP/ single thingy a year on Bombstrikes, Prosper & Stabfinger’s effort for 2018 – the Fire In Me EP – is out tomorrow. But where their Mista Funkmaster EP chopped up the samples and their Dopeness EP balanced the samples with original vox, the pair go all original for this one. Forgoing his more usual falsetto, funky man Georges Perin adds a touch of

BADBOE & PROSPER: Get Your Boogie On (2017)

Production duo Badboe & Prosper reunite for one of their occasional forays into effortlessly effective party breakbeats – this time for the Bombstrikes label with the Get Your Boogie On EP. Which of course you undoubtedly will when you hear the unlikely pairing of Ann Peebles & West Coast emcee Mack 10 on the title track. Possibly even more persuasive a groove is the even less likely

PULPFUSION: Wrong World Remixed Vol. 2 (2012)

News of Pulpfusion’s Wrong World Remixed Vol 2 arrived at just the wrong time two weeks ago dropping on to monkey’s virtual doormat hours before the annual monkey summer holiday. Still, to redress matters here we are now in a brief examination of what happened when the Swiss beat assassin bravely handed over the keys of his Wrong World LP for the second time this year to a

MONKEYBOXING.COM presents: Filthy Rhythm, Dirty Soul Vol. 2 (2012) Free download

CMC & SILENTA: Roca Records presents Feature Breaks Vol. 2 (2011)

Second release in CMC & Silenta’s Feature Breaks series on their Roca imprint and they’ve opened up their back catalogue for remixing. It has to be said that this could be tantamount to handing a nutter some garden shears and getting your wedding tackle out, depending on who you’ve got on remix duties. Never fear though, half the ghetto funk universe were already queueing

WACK RECORDS 11: Smov/ DJ Kid Stretch/ Prosper/ The Breakbeat Junkie/ DJP (2011)

It’s been a while but ‘Berry Geordie’ (a.k.a. producer Smoove of Smoove & Turrell) has a new Wack Records drop waiting in the wings – and this one comes with a theme. Do you hanker for that era when funk and soul was either busy morphing into or being superseded by four-to-the-floor beats and hip-hop was barely a twinkle in Kool Herc’s eye? Are you all about ‘leisure suit’/ nylon shirt-open-to-the-waist combos?

PROSPER & RORY HOY: Get Dat Boogie Chase EP (2011)

I think this might just be my favourite Big M release since Vol 8 of Big M Productions (the one with Breakbeat Junkie & DJPs massive Drop Down on it) came out. In a large part, it has to be said, this is because of the cumbia stylings of Todo Es Nuevo for, as any MB regulars will know, the monkey’s all over a big latin breaks effort. And there have certainly been some bangers this year – DJ Moar, Panama Cardoon and Kuhjo having

BBP: Freak Hop EP (2011)

It says here that the ‘freak hop’ concept was invented by long time Badboe cohort Prosper. ‘Freak hop’, in case you were wondering, seems to be like a mash-up for those with terminal ADHD since it involves combining not two or even three previously recorded tracks but as many as can possibly be crammed into between 4 to six minutes. Didn’t that used to be called a minimix? Whatever it is, the main elements of all the tracks

PROSPER & BADBOE: Blow Matata EP – 2011

Franco-Danish production dream team Prosper and Badboe return on the Rebel Scream label with more funky breaks goodness, here taking the form of the Blow Matata EP. Their manifesto is laid plain in the old-school vocal samples of the title track (“We gonna blow, blow, blow your speakers”) eschewing the (these days) almost inevitable wobbly bassline for a something a little more traditional

MANMADE RECORDS: Gold Edition – 2010

Old funk, nufunk, ghettofunk, blue funk – Dr Seuss would have a field day as we live through the most amusing genre-name wars since the old trip-hop versus ‘blunted beats’ conflict of the mid-nineties. All that aside, Manmade celebrate their tenth release with some 24 carat action in the form of a double vinyl EP – which you just know is going to be cut loud.
