TRU FUNK: Nu Party Breaks Vol. 5 (2013)

There ain’t no party like a Tru:Funk party and the crew assembled for Nu Party Breaks Vol. 5 pillage past decades to make sure business is all funky as usual. DJ AKA gets busy with KC & The Sunshine Band, the superbly named Hiphoppapotamus wallows in the sound of Curtis Mayfield, Morlack responds to the siren call of Dizzee Rascal, Warson re-imagines soul funky cut Don’t Lose Your Groove? for the ghetto funky generation and then both he and Zenit Incompatible deliver a brace of tracks that appear to sample the arse end of the eighties. Party kings this time are Tosses & Varvez though with their skankin ghetto funk People Switch All Around. Don’t even think about calling it ‘ghetto ska.’
