[RATING: 5] The second round of the new series from Tru:Funk, Tasty Beats Vol. 2, serves up an even more flavoursome selection than its predecessor. DJ Maars commences proceedings with one of his trademark reggae-hip-hop booty bangers featuring Biggie n ragga vocals which is followed by Chudy who does one of his reliable breakbeat reboots of nineties soul. Next up is Shaka Loves You with energetic nufunkhop sustenance and then it’s the turn of Mako (of Mako & The Hawk fame) & Mr Bristow with the ridiculous does-what-it-says-on-the-tin soul n bass antics of Jungle Soul. Which just leaves Warson to close proceedings with a more conventional drum n bass dessert. Preview audio below plus DJ Tanner’s video edit of Mako & Mr Bristow’s Jungle Soul below that – nice to see Tina and The Ikettes (not to mention the Dutch rave massive) put in a bit of dancing for Loma Records’ Linda Jones. Bomb-a-drop!
(Out 28 April on Tru:Funk)
