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.

Never mind – what does it sound like when your soul gets high then? Well, it’s kind of like sultry wah-wah-driven (nu)funky breaks with a falsetto vocal from Georges Perin really.

NICKODEMUS feat. THE REAL LIVE SHOW: ‘Give The Drummer Some’ remixes (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★
Next time someone says, “Man, you gotta listen to this” adding earnestly (just before they press play) “…these are the breaks” – stop them. Explain that you have heard the breaks and few people since Kurtis Blow can lay as much claim to his immortal words than DJ Regal (of Wiseguys fame) with his ‘B-Boy Drum Flip’ of Nickodemus & The Real

BIGM PRESENTS: Vol. 22 Various Bangin’ Artists (BigMP22) (2012)

I don’t know the collective noun for a group of breakbeat producers like the one the BigM label has assembled here and neither apparently do BigM who’ve settled for the description ‘bangin’ artists.’ For the twenty second time.

LAKESHORE DRIVE: Living The Funk EP (2012)

Living the funk? James Brown lived the funk and frankly there was a fair amount of drugs, wife-beating and jail involved. I think it’s safe to assume however that Lakeshore Drive’s Living The Funk EP is a celebration of the music invented by the big man than the more questionable elements of his lifestyle. The title track is a tight little slice of programmed instrumental breakbeat funk with a

Oz beat fiend Tom Drummond’s latest is the Rock The Rhythm EP on which he delivers four cuts that buck current ghetto funk trends by daring to venture into the sub-120 bpm arena. Below 120 bpm? Good god – you might as well be sat down for that right? If your answer’s ‘yes’ then think again as TD turns Tags’ obscure psych-funk version of Get Out My Life Woman into a 105 bpm funky breaks
