JAYL FUNK feat. TARZAN BROS: Funkin’ Your Soul (2017)

JAYL FUNK feat. TARZAN BROS: Funkin' Your SoulJayl Funk and Tarzan Bros. channel late 70s Bronx vibes on their latest collaboration Funkin’ Your Soul. Out on Jayl Funk’s very own Honkey Phonk label, this drop is all about the super disco-breakin’ vibes, positively dripping with retro-synth bass and funky geetar while Tarzan Bros. grace the mic in a firmly Sugarhill stylee. Let’s put it this way – Sylvia Robinson would have released it. Can

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 22 & 23 (2015)

Vol 22 23 Katakana EditsLee Zamah‘s The Castor Groove takes Jimmy Castor’s words A Groove Will Make You Move as its guiding tenet on Katakana Edits 22. Words, beat and quite a lot else in fact since, this is bootleg city and nothing is sacred. On the flip, Trotter pops round to help make Ginga the chunky slice of electro boogie that it undoubtedly is. Vol. 23 is however the sole province of Morlack who takes a

MORLACK: Boogaloo EP (2012)

“Richie, would you do me a favor and eat my pussy for me, please?” Yeah. That got your attention didn’t it?
