Review: Bomb Strikes ain't playing around these days. Once an irregular outlet for cheeky party nuggets, now a serious mover and shaker in the nu-funk movement, their output has been exemplary of late - and Neon Steve's leading from the front. Following his Feeling EP, a set of sizzling originals, comes these two tonked up bass gems. "Tell Me Who" takes an old George Thoroughgood rock n' roll ditty about having chimneys made of human skull and gives it a luscious low-end seeing to while "I Got Tha Faith" blends Led Zepp with Depeche Mode. The result? Inspired. Two bombs of the rudest distinction.

Review: An interesting development for Bomb Strikes.; usually found touting killer bootlegs and unofficial remixes, Neon Steve's EP is 100 per cent original. And 100 per cent funky! "Feeling" features the distinctive vocal work of NY chanteuse Charlotte Dobre. Wriggling with a slinky post-dubstep breakbeat it's got equal measures of sexy sonic sophistication and true bass grit. And if it's grit you're after, you can't go wrong with the Zulu-fronted "Kill Em With The Vibes". Rocking and shocking on a grinding tropical flex, it's a party piece with the power of a hundred carnivals. For added versatility and flavour, "The Sideshow" ends the release on a cheeky, low-swung nu-funk flex. We're definitely "Feeling" this EP!

Review: Released by Punchout, a sister label of US imprint Homebreakin', these four new hip-hop/breaks tracks are perfect party starters - from the Guru-sampling "Movin On" by Neon Steve, to the Junkyard Band remix "Soul Foodie" by Bobby C. Punchy, party-rocking excellence.

Review: The Bomb Strike Sound System strikes again! This time Pimpsoul's taken the controls, picking up various co-pilots along the way. First up is "Merry Go Round". Co-written with Neon Steve, it's a really cool piece of sample mastery, taking a really obscure Supreme's vocal refrain and giving it a complete funk facial. "To The Beat" sees Pimpsoul flying in tandem with fellow Bomber Mooqee on a more stomp-angled number that incorporates a very Fred Durst sounding vocal snippet and a Fela Kuti horn sample. Finally Pimpers goes solo for "What". The prize banger of the bunch, it kidnaps the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, holds them in nu-funk's county jail and throws away the key with glee.

Review: The adrenalin junkies at Bomb Strikes HQ launch a new series of EPs designed to demonstrate the studio skills of their main artists. Here, Pimpsoul and Neon Steve make their debut on the long-established breaks bootleg/mash-up imprint, offering up a trio of heavyweight jams. As ever, all three have that typical Bomb Strikes vibe, which marries tried and tested breaks and back passage-bothering bass with just the right amount of rap and some sneaky little melodic hooks. Pimpsoul's "Set It Off" slightly flips the script, working in a cute easy listening/slacker pop vocal. Otherwise, it's floor-baiting business all round!

Review: If you're after cheeky, rump-shaking breaks heaviness with a dash of old skool charm and more than a few familiar samples, you could do worse than check out the ongoing Bomb Strikes series. This split EP showcases more material designed to induce jumping-around and other dancefloor silliness. Pimpsoul delivers just that in the shape of "Rock You", a funky kick-up-the-pants disguised as a slick house/breaks/disco mash-up. Neon Steve goes jungle on his epic wobble-a-thon "Blindside", while Bryx wobbles and stomps his way through a bro-step version of Ninja Tune fave "The Terrorist". Heavy? You bet!

Review: Kings of funky breaks Bomb Strikes are the kings of hefty party-starters, and Into Battle Volume 3 EP doesn't disappoint, featuring Pimpsoul's huge La Roux rerub "This Time", the Hendrix-heavy "Hear Ya Say" from Harvey, bitcrushed rock from Neon Steve on "I Got Tha" and the supreme '80s funk-flavoured "Whoa Now" by Slynk. Get into it.
