Prosper & Badboe ensure the 45 side of things continues to bubble away at the Breakbeat Paradise label with the arrival of new vinyl 7″, Toxic Funk Vol. 3. And the first of two cuts to be featured is A-side Beastie Lifestyles on which (you guessed it) the Beastie Boys’ All Lifestyles ‘pella sees the light of day again over a jaunty new disco-funky beat. This alone should provide more than enough ‘shabadoo shabbadee’ (if not ‘shabadee shabadoo’) to infect dancefloors if the clubs ever re-open. Should additional weaponry be required however, it can be found on the flip where another super-disco breakin groove is laced with classic bars from Snoop Dogg and Eminem. That’s two potent doses of hip-hop-fuelled party breaks by anyone’s definition of such things.
