HIPSTA: Step To The Rhythm (2014)

Step To The Rhythm Hipsta“Do you wear skinny jeans rolled up with no socks? Do you wear a plaid shirt and braces? Do you wear your hair long and greased back on top but shaved at the sides? With old school biker tattoos and a beard like Edward fucking Lear? Looking like some art school cock’s idea of a 1940s biker? Probably with a beer belly?

MASSEVIL: Welcome To Eccentric City EP (2014) + Shake That Booty video

Welcome To Eccentric City MassevilThis is precisely what happens when you leave MassEvil unchecked. No, not a pro-UKIP calypso by that sanctimonious prick Mike Read – (that’s the consequence of leaving ‘mass evil’ unchecked) I’m on about the Welcome To Eccentric City EP – and it’s a downright nasty place. I imagine Radical Mixtape‘s latest discovery to be an immense black creature lurking at the centre of

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Get Up On Ya Feet Remixed (2014)

Get Up On Ya Feet Remixed Cockney NutjobCockney Nutjob‘s muscular dancefloor skank from November gets the remix treatment on the next drop from Radical Mixtape Recordings.

JAPETTO: Party Bangers Vol. 7 (2014)

Party Bangers Vol 7 JapettoOnce upon a time there was a nufunk beatcarver called Japetto who got his hands on some rather lively samples which he fashioned into his debut three track EP for the Radical Mixtape label. There was the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies one which formed the basis of opener swing breaks opener Swingin Riot, the Diana Ross one which underpinned the ladies ghetto-funk night middle number and the

COCKNEY NUTJOB: Get Up On Your Feet EP (2013) + video

Wasn’t it the late great Rufus Thomas who said, “Get up on your feet and then you start to move,”? I’m not sure what he had in mind was Cockney Nutjob‘s third outing for the Radical Mixtape label but to some extent that’s academic as the parping bass-horns which form an integral part of the powerful skanking title track along with the various chopped-up well-known vocal snippets that

SHAKA: Party Bangers Vol. 6 (2013)

Just backdoored the peak at Teahupoo? Throw out a shaka. Won the latest Billabong XXL? Throw out a double shaka! Vintage VW Beetle or camper driver who’s just experienced the massively unlikely coincidence of passing someone else who drives a Beetle or vintage VW camper?
