Review: Big-assed bootleg business from the Actual Sounds crew... Big Bang Breaks revisits Public Enemy on "Bring Your Whistle" and Derrick May on "Swings Of Life". Meanwhile Funk You Very Much mixes up Randy Newman with Biggie Smalls on "Leaving Cali", gives The Doors a slap with glove of glitches on "Break The Doors" and gets jiggy on a two-step vibe with "Bop A Lot". Elsewhere we find Funky Wah Wah fusing Too Short's "Blow The Whistle" with a reggae version of Marvin Gaye on "Blow It Shorty". Hit 'em up... Then knock 'em down!

Review: Four new mash-ups from production team FYVM, who are well-versed in adding an unexpected breakbeat spin to a wide range of songs. "The Beach Noise" for example samples vocals from The Beach Boys and adds them to a simple 'womp' beat, while Nirvana get a thorough overhaul on the huge "Stinking Teen Spirit". And for some fast and frantic thrills, check out the Prodigy and the Beasties going toe-to-toe on "Fight For Your Charly".

Review: Another volume in this fun 'n' fresh series of breaks-slanted mash up's sees The Jackson 5 get shook down to the ground on the excellent disco-rhythmed "Break Your Body Down", Will Smith getting a tough new set of beats on "Fresh Summertime", Dr Dre and Snoop's finest moment updated on "Gee Thang Twang" and perhaps best of all, Jona Lewie's '80s synth-pop classic getting nicely rejigged on 'You Will Always Find Him On The Decks At Parties".

Review: Funking heck! Will Actual Sounds ever run out of party products? We're talking weekly releases here; each one as cheeky as the previous. Five cuts are on offer this time round, with three instantly recognisable bootlegs as Musical Youth's "Pass The Dutchy", Blur's "Song 2" and Chemical Brothers "Block Rocking Beats" all get a boisterous bulletproof nu funk coat. Elsewhere on the EP are two more understated dancefloor burners with heaps of originality and character. "Everybody Wobble" rides out on a vibrant 60s organ swing while "Free Funk" grooves its face off with a pitched down 2007-flavoured electro riff.

Review: Four funky, mashed-up treats from the latest in this series from Actual Sounds. Funkadelic's chorus 'n' guitar solo favourite "Get Off Your Ass & Jam" gets quantised and layered with a whole new punchy drum track, while "Bustin' Loose" is a chopped up and brassy cover of Nelly's "Hot In Here". The George Clinton love affair carries through into the breaks remix of Parliament's "Mothership Connection", while Bob Marley's "Could You Be Loved" gets sped-up and jiggled with on the closing "Bonus Bob".
