PULPFUSION: From A Kid To A Man

PULPFUSION: From A Kid To A ManYet another project that dropped in the festive season and was thus in danger of getting lost amid all the nonsense that such a season entails is the From A Kid To A Man LP from a man who has been off the monkey radar for a long minute – Pulpfusion. Nevertheless, Terence Thoeny (for it is he) dropped this instrumental opus of fourteen tracks (plus three bonus cuts if you cop it on his

BREAKBEAT PARADISE RECORDINGS: Big Fat Mama Beats (2016)

Big Fat Mama Breakbeat ParadiseHaving done the ‘old’ (with the retro 90s-ish sound of the Badass Funk EP from earlier in the year), Breakbeat Paradise Recordings now do the ‘new’ assembling a seven-artist strong squad consisting of Discobeta, Mr Rich & Caretaker, Crashgroove, Wiccatron, Funky Boogie Brothers, Rory Hoy and Pulpfusion to take things musically bang-up-to-date with the Big Fat Mama Beats EP – all expectations (as

PULPFUSION: Funk Never Sleeps EP (2015)

Funk Never Sleeps PulpfusionRating: ★★★★★ Pulpfusion comes bursting out of the stalls for January with 7-track wax EP Funk Never Sleeps and brings along MorrisChestnut for extra production, Lorenzo Medici for sax action, Kiwi rapper Imagine This for some vocal action and remixers Rory Hoy, DJ Maars and Jayl Funk for some – er – remix action. Good lord! That’s the sort of line-up that should be read in stentorian

FLYING FISH: Play For Me/ Oh My Dayz (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ The A-side of the current 45 from Flying Fish is a hectic Pulpfusion remix but frankly this one’s all about the flip – Oh My Dayz – the best bit of boom-bap soul I’ve heard since The Snugs dropped Strugglin’ back in 2007. Sparse stabs of dark horns and a tight break create a smoky atmosphere over which Leah Smith weaves a tale of a bloke she’s just met who’s ‘kind of cute’ but a

PULPFUSION: Pain & Hurt (2013)

A nice bit of downtempo breakbeat soul, Pain & Hurt is one of the standouts on the just-released Modern Jazz LP from Swiss producer Pulpfusion – a man more usually known for inflicting damage with sledgehammer breakbeat assaults. Featuring a very easy-on-the-ear female vocal pitched somewhere between horny and sweetly heartbroken, this might be about the singer’s

PULPFUSION: Modern Jazz (2013)

Right then – how about some Modern Jazz. Wait – come back! I’m on about Pulpfusion‘s forthcoming LP Modern Jazz not ‘modern jazz.’ Yes – Pulpfusion – that Swiss ‘ghetto metal’ merchant who makes Junkie XL and The Prodigy sound like chamber music. Has he found a new musical direction? ‘Nu-fusion’ perhaps? A ‘ghetto funk’ On The Corner? Nothing so hideous. The title track might open with

LASH SMASHER: Get Ready Or Get Lost (2013)

Say hello to Pulpfusion‘s new alter-ego Lash Smasher and LP Get Ready Or Get Lost. Basically if you felt that the presence of Keith Flint and Maxim Reality on the The Prodigy’s Music For The Jilted Generation and Fat Of The Land was surplus to requirements or that Junkie XL’s early material was his best work, then listening to this will feel like coming home. In other words, you’re getting

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

PULPFUSION: Wrong World Remixed Vol. 1(2012)

In which Swiss beats merchant Pulpfusion throws the keys of recent ghetto metal LP Wrong World into the remix dish and allows his baby to be taken home by a variety of remixers to get as saucy as they wish. Engaging in the action are Zenit Incompatible, Turntill & Merlin, Hong Kong Ping Pong, Frenic, Assassinated, Funkanizer, Rambla

DJ AXE vs. STEREO BEATZ: Funk N’ Breaks (BigMD038) (2012)

BigM regular Stereo Beatz has brought along his mate DJ Axe this time for Funk N’ Breaks or more accurately ‘ghetto funk n breaks’. Not that I’m complaining you understand – as the synths on this rock a funky ice cream van vibe that I haven’t heard since Jake Slazenger brought out Supaphunk about fifteen years ago. Slazenger’s was more of an armchair anthem though whereas the big breaks
