THE BREAKBEAT JUNKIE vs DJP : For Promotional Use Only

THE BREAKBEAT JUNKIE vs DJP :  For Promotional Use OnlyFor Promotional Use Only? Yes, it’s just The Breakbeat Junkie vs DJP’s little joke as they return to the party breaks scene after a lengthy period AWOL with a no-messin’ trio of disco-tinged mashups. Currently digital-only (but don’t be surprised if a ltd. 7″ or – who knows – even the traditional disco 12″ eventually manifests itself), the release finds our heroes begin proceedings by

Here they follow-up previous collabo,Got It Like That, with Ugly Duckling’s Dizzy Dustin by co-opting the services of another West Coast boom

THE BREAKBEAT JUNKIE & DJP: Represent The Style (2013)

The Breakbeat Junkie and DJP hook up again, this time on BBP, to release Represent The Style and the style they seem to be representing is cocaine-dusted mirrorball nights. The title track finds the pair of them re-working Lil Kim in a Paradise Garage stylee, then DJP has a louche disco tango with Princess Superstar before the Breakbeat Junkie uses 4EverFresh sample, “We created rap

SECOND HAND AUDIO feat. DIZZY DUSTIN: Got It Like That (GFD03) (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★
There was only one logical step for the ghetto funk/ breaks scene when the well of old school and underground hip hop rapapellas started drying up. Get some original vocals of course. There’s been barely a handful of those in the last few years but you can expect a lot more from now on as the necessity of finding something suitable (and unrinsed)

BIG M presents: THE BREAKBEAT JUNKIE vs. DJP (2012)

Funky breaks dream team The Breakbeat Junkie and DJP hook-up again and cook up some new heat for the Big M label – three joint efforts and DJP’s solo banger Say Word. I’m always a sucker for party hip-hop so it’s the latter that takes my fancy the most with its inspired employment of Treacherous Three and solo Spoonie G vocals. You can’t get much more old school than that and the

BIG M Presents: More Banging Artists (2011) 12”

Big M’s latest wax project hops between sub-genres like a right beat slut. It delivers an wobbly uptempo Bollywood ghetto funk from Nynfus Corp, a straight up funky breaks version of funky soul staple Hold On I’m Comin’ from Nev Scott & Waynessential, mid-tempo Nu-Yorican breaks from The Breakbeat Junkie and finishes up with Uppercut Continue’s dubstep exploration of ‘that night’ when Charlie Sheen’s crack became famous. Sorry, did I say

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?

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.
