BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Paradise Breaks Vol. IV (2016)

Paradise Breaks Vol IV BBPImagine if you will, a tropical island consisting of nothing more than a conveniently dancefloor-sized clearing and a couple of palm trees. Floating above cloud level at sunset. Oh yeah – and the conical under-surface of said island reveals the entire structure to be nothing less than a giant speaker. Someone clearly has, for this is the cover of the latest compilation of party breakbeat glory in the


Breakbeat Paradise Bring Back The FunkIt’s sometimes easy to lose sight of the funk in the midst of all the wobble but Badboe‘s Breakbeat Paradise Recordings have made it a personal mission to ensure that the spirit of what JB started isn’t forgotten on planet breakbeat. For this year’s effort, proceedings are opened by Father Funk who loves to love you with a moody disco breaks number adorned with Timbaland vocals and a dash

SLYNK feat. TIMOTHY WISDOM: Flip It Up (2014)

Flip It Up Slynk Timothy WisdomClearly not a man who feels he’s released enough big free downloads in the last month, Slynk drops yet another one. It’s not an edit this time though but some original funky disco breakin and he’s joined on it by Timothy Wisdom.
“Not Timothy Wisdom ‘the ghetto funk MacGyver: you name it, he can do it?'”
“Yep – the very same.”

TIMOTHY WISDOM: Dance With You (2014) Free download

Dance With You Timothy WisdomHe produces snarly ghetto funk anthems, he does a spot of emceeing and now it turns out he’s a bit of a crooner to boot on this funky-but-sweetly-gentle slice of electronic breaks? What can have come over Timothy Wisdom as he declares that all he wants to do is ‘Dance With You’ in a Prince-like falsetto. Especially when he does that over what he freely admits is more of a set-closer than a peak-

TIMOTHY WISDOM: On My Mind EP (2013)

ReSoul Records employ a certain Wisdom to create their latest funky breaks release which he does without resorting to wobble or even much grind but neverthless in a party stylee. Put The Stereo On reworks Gappy Ranks in a pumping, skanking disco funk manner while On My Mind refluffs George Duke’s Reach Out in a pumping disco breaks manner. But how does he do it all

TRU FUNK: Party Breaks: Essential Selection (2013)

In today’s internet-era, the public’s appetite for interesting ‘stuff’ is voracious and their memory of said ‘stuff’ so short that they’ve practically forgotten whatever it was they gawping/ listening/ mooing at in the second it took them to ‘swim’ from one side of the digital fishbowl to the other. Plus the amount of ‘stuff’ out there keeps increasing exponentially. In this environment, any record company that fails to market effectively is a

GHETTO FUNK PRESENTS: Bring The Boom (GFP16)(2013)

Some of you may be aware that Bim and Ben lead bands with brooms and furthermore that Ben’s band bangs and Bim’s band booms. While you’re pondering that, here’s something else that booms – Ghetto Funk‘s forthcoming Bring The Boom EP. JFB & Dancefloor Outlaws give Desmond Dekker some dnb boom, Timothy Wisdom gives LL Cool J some ghetto funk boom (don’t call it a comeback)

BASEMENT FREAKS & TIMOTHY WISDOM: Loopback Brother (2012) + ‘Golden Rock’ free download

Loopback Brother finds Basement Freaks and Timothy Wisdom take a brotherly approach to music creation by pooling resources – including TW on the mic. Which presumably makes them ‘loopback brothers’ or something. Anyway, this semblance of sibling seemliness spawns a squelchy, hip-hop-influenced (and hip-hop speed, at 101 bpm) ghetto funker which our men toss out into

TREMENDO Vol. 3: Various (2012)

Er, yeah – so this should’ve been posted last week. If you didn’t know, the man behind the Tremendo label is Spanish ghetto funker Telephunken. That’s Señor Telephunken to you. Or Senor Tremendo. Sounds like a magician – which is apt since his first trick, I mean track, (well – it is his label) is to sample Rage Against The Machine’s Killing In The Name – just in

LOVE MUSIC, HATE RACISM & CULT MUSIC present: Funk Against Fascism (2011)

There are many reasons to reject fascism in its many forms – the one-dimensional, ‘might is right’ attitude, the staggering lack of logic in its ideological arguments and crucially – the shit music. Wagner and Skrewdriver? Christ! Enter breakbeat deejay Totalcult who (in collaboration with Love Music, Hate Racism has been marshalling the rebel forces
