Review: It's been a great year for Morlack so far, and he's showing no signs of losing momentum with this brand new quad of nu-funk booties. "Shake That Pussy" gives Dizzee a P-funk massage. "Move Song" comes at you with a shiny Paul Hardcastle / Harold Faltermeyer style 80s groove. "Pusher" takes Ice-T's finest moment and gives it a Shaft-style 70s car chase down Lombard hill. Finally we hit a funky climax of Parliamentary proportions as Morlack goes back to the source and samples Bootsy himself. Outstanding stuff.

Review: French funkateer Morlack gets lively with an EP that belies its unforgiving title... Far from sounding cruel, each of the five cuts on here resonate with a sprightly, positive glow. The big problem is where to start: do you kick off your party with the slap-bass naughtiness and party chant of "It's Hot"? Or you go straight for the jugular with the rampant "Do It To Me"? Alternatively you could press the 'carnival' button and get freaky with the heaving horns of "Mamboteca". How about throwing the party into delightful disarray with the Cypress Hill/Bootsy booty "Refugee Camp"? Or, for your final option, causing a mosh pit with the Busta-front electro-techno-rock clash "Tical"? It's all about the options, of which Morlack gives you plenty. Cruel? Too generous more like!

Review: Morlack's a dark horse! Having emerged in the last 18 months with a selection of ace floor-shattering singles on Breakbeat Paradise, Big M and Funk Blasters, he's not so once as hinted at a full-length album. Yet here it is; and it sounds as if it's been in our collections forever. Operating with a slithering, low-swung vibe there's heavy emphasis on bold hip-hop breaks, sopping wet basslines and well crafted hip-hop vocals from the likes of ODB, Bootsy Collins, Public Enemy and many many more. As the album progresses we shimmy from cheeky b-boy to raw funk ("Bizz") to 80s electro boogie pop ("Yabba Bridge") to decadent synth-driven proto-house ("I'm Too Sexy"). From mischievous funk flinger to full album artist, Morlack's taking names right now.

Review: Breakbeat Paradise continue their commendable services to ghetto funk freaks across the globe with this rather delicious four track from French funkateer Morlack. The lead piece, a pelvis thrusting rendition of Tower Of Power's '72 hit "You Got To Funkafize", sets the agenda with supreme squidgy bass and a groove that simply won't quit. "Party Squeezing" follows, and with it comes an enchanting slap bassline that should woo the most poe-faced of dancefloors. Elsewhere we get a little lively on the horns with "Champagne & Caviar" and "Lil Strange To You", a track that harbours a walking bassline that's so brutishly funky rumour has it Bootsy Collins' chopped off his ear when he listened to it on our site.

Review: Just like his previous EP a few months back on Breakbeat Paradise, Morlack ticks every single party box possible across five tracks here. Kicking off with his darkest moment to date, "Ghetto Messiah" is a vicious Bassnectar flavoured rub of Fugee's "Rumble In The Jungle. Meanwhile "Get Twisted" flips the switch completely with a fair tale nu-funk jam that utilises DMX's "X Gonna Give It To Ya" to a booty-shaking excess. Elsewhere we find Big Daddy Kane going disco ("Dogzone V3") and Nas, Kanye and KRS-One getting lively on a the fattest p-funk groove this side of the Weight Watchers clinic ("Get A Lil' Stupid").

Review: French producer Morlack pops up with this bangin' little release on BBP Recordings. "Ghetto Vaccination" will turn the most heads here, appearing in both original and remixed by Badboe form. The Danish producer adds some nu-funk muscle to his version, adding a sheen of buyability to an impressive release that also includes three more Morlack originals - namely "Electrophonic Mind", the squealing sax of "Nice & Rough" and Juno Download freebie "Play Cards Right".

Review: How many edit series can boast reaching a tenth volume? Ok, well how many can boast of attaining ten successful ones? Here French funk party commander Morlack provides five new top-notch retweaks that take no prisoners. "Loose It" is a tight James Brown-style jam that occasionally veers into French electro territory, "Let's Boogie" is all funk grooves and tough hip-hop breaks, "Big Pill" is total rubberband disco-funk,"Capital S" is more electro-boogie and finally "Tough" wraps things up with a big ole slap bass and flute singalong!

Review: French breaks-bass producer and remixer Morlack has made a name for himself with some cheeky edits and sub-punishing originals over the last few years, but "Where Do U Get Ur Funk From" is his first full-length foray for the Funk Blasters label and it's a gem from start to finish. A mix of straight up raw JB funk (as on "Put It Out") to heavyweight nu-funk breaks ("Soul Train Line"), Morlack lends his hand to all manner of styles and keeps things buzzing and distinctly party-flavoured over the LP's thirteen tracks.

Review: French breaks head Morlack returns to the BBP label after his first "Ghetto Vaccination" release for them a few years back with this sample-tastic, funk 'n' breaks work out. Lead song "Take It To The Zulu" gets split into two parts - one bearing a huge nod to Afro-tribal house and the other leaning on more of haunted hip-hop tip. "Get It Hot" however switches up styles into a jazz-funk blitz while "See The Light" goes all out soulful with some excellent mellow jazz samples layered over kicking breaks drums.
