Review: Dubbed 'a musical behemoth of apocalyptic proportions', Funky Presidents is the third Breakers Banquet release and it highlights the label's roster perfectly. BadBoE delivers pure funky party breaks gold with the well-named "Tear The Roof Off" and Roast Beatz gives some modern hip-hop a vintage twist on "Rock Right". Meanwhile El Bomba's "Shotgun" and Cris Crucial's "Comin From Da Underground" both channel feelgood 90s big beat in fine style.

Review: Serious booty-fusion abounds on this new series from Booty Fruit. Badboe introduces Jeru The Damaja and Ini Kamoze to a disco bassline. Roast Beatz gives Grand Puba a sexy, sun-kissed facelift. El Bomba and Hidden Riddim go back to school on their Akai and get clever with a range of well-known samples and big old juicy bassline. Waggles finishes the set with the cheekiest addition that sees the Beastie Boys on a lounge lizard samba flex. Party insanity.

Review: Tequila-fuelled beats from Exeter. Is it a rave in a regional branch of Chilango? Nope, it's the latest EP from veteran nu-funk & breaks producer, El Bomba, on new label Breakerz Banquet. Boasting four musical burritos packed with Latin goodness, highlights include the percussive Mexican groover "El Baron", the organ-led big beat hip-houser "Buen Viaje" and the slow melancholic bounce of "Tristeza".

Review: However many new directions dance music goes in, there will always be a place for simple-but-effective bootleg mash-ups of familiar grooves and hip-hop acapellas. To be fair to the Booty Fruit camp, they do it better than most, offering reworks that balance dancefloor playability with a tasteful approach to production. There's a distinct hip-hop feel throughout, with Roast Beatz's harmonica-laden Beasties booty "Hick Stick" and Livingstone & Conosis' bumpin' "Tuna Salad" - a Charli 2na rework - standing out. Check also the head-nodding disco-skank of El Bomba and Hidden Riddim's "Miss Discoflex".

Review: The second in Booty Fruit's "Proper Produce" series sees four new funk-propelled mash ups hitting the virtual shelves this week. Among the highlights, Beastie Boys fans will certainly appreciate El Bomba & Hidden Riddim's "Dr Fluteski", which uses the same sample source as the NYC legends' "Flute Loop", while The Allergies give Blueboy's "Remember Me" an '80s soul rerub.

Review: Breakerz Banquet switch the feast to a BBQ flex with a quartet of laid back summer vibes. Fresh from fronting the label launch, El Bomba takes the lead with "Party Your Ass Off". A refreshingly honest ode to smoking, drinking and fun times, it's an instant smiler. Knuckle Fingerz plays the spot-the-sample game with a whole range of well-known lyrical hooks and a Tribe Called Quest level groove. Cris Crucial plays a similar rap homage with added Dee-lite and Maars. Finally the whole team collide for the 'banger' of the bunch... Muscular drums, a clinically obese groove and party chants a-go-go, if you're not popping within 30 seconds, your volume function is faulty. Yummy.

Review: Booty Fruit goes in for the kill on the second helping of the Cherry Bomb series, a twisted fusion of boogie breaks, sample-heavy chops and house-flavoured grooves. This time it's Roast Beatz, El Bomba and Father Funk who teams up to spray the madness out in full effect. If you're into the combination disco, funky and breaks, then look no further...

Review: From the home of breaks-laced mash-ups, Booty Fruit drop four new tasty treats for DJs and fans alike. Tonic invoke classic '70s funk band War with their brassy "Smack", while Cut La Vis gets superstitious on the slow and punchy "Superwishin". Elsewhere, Jim Morrison gets chopped and screwed with on Funkanizer's "Peace Frog" while El Bomba's "Mad Style" recalls the best of '90s hip-hop thanks to some tight drum samples and an effortlessly funky bass line.

Review: Swiss booty dealers Tremendo launch a new series and the title says it all. The label's established funk sound is still in abundance, but it rolls with a heavier bass twist. In some places the low end urgency is more obvious than others - DJ Soo and Tim Livingstone's earworm bassline rips through "Boom!" with true musical mischief while Father Funk's "Feel The Beat Y'All" is less dirty and more cheeky with its classic swing motifs and occasional wobbles. Elsewhere we hear Jayl Funk pay homage to classic 60s funk, Trotters and Telephunken munching on raw squidgy bass and El Bomba getting all slinky and sexy. Get dirty.
