from $1.39
Review: Skimming the purist, fullest fat cream from the nu-funk crop, Scour's behaviour at the forefront of the party-minded movement is nothing short of commendable. Their most extensive compendium to date, vibes range of the Little Walter-sampling "Ain't No Coolin" to the filtered jazz funk chops and slaps of "The Program". Between these two disparate-yet-wholly-consistent flavours you'll find subverted swing (Father Funk & Howla's "Got Swing?"), stark Jackson Five string struts ("Soul Rocka") and classic rap ("Two For The Crates"). Whipped and unashamedly fresh, Scour really are the cream of the crop right now.

Review: If anyone can fuse Q-Tip, Busta and Sister Sledge, it's the Disco Cakes head honchos Defkline and Red Polo. In fact their baking is so sweet they've cooked up two versions; a funk-fuelled disco jam and a swaggering, breakbeat-heavy hip-hop version. Naturally both cuts are so tasty your dancefloor will be munching out of the palm of your hand. Further on we're punched with a bass-battered nu-funk version of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock N Roll" and sweet-talked by the sexy dancehall version of early 90s hip-hop crew K7 on "Come Baby Come". Yummy.

I Shot Big L by DJ Feva on Dirty Dubster Digital Cue Track
DJ Feva - "I Shot Big L" - (5:23) 144 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Dirty Dubster's popular Ragga Party Jams series continues, with another quartet of dubwise mash-ups and reggae/hip-hop futures. Larry SKG kicks things off with "Hypocrites", an expertly crafted fusion of a classic soulful reggae riddim and well-chosen hip-hop samples. DJ Maars' "Just Like Music" blends a familiar rap vocal and sunshine reggae jam with vocal cuts from a classic Marvin Gaye slow jam, while DJ Rebel's "Here Comes The Mashupper" layers a skanking riddim with all manner of familiar vocal samples. Best of all, though, is "I Shot Big L", in which Bob Marley takes a trip into scratchy reggae hip-hop territory. It shouldn't work, but it's sympathetically produced and sounds like a sunshine anthem in the making.

from $1.67
Review: Fresh-faced nu-funk crew Rise Above call in some big names for their debut quadlet of bass-bitten buzz cuts. Tonic takes the Beasties and drags them into a post apocalyptic future where ugly basslines reign supreme. Howla switches and slams with a series of tightly edited horns and a blisteringly heavy groove. JFB, meanwhile, lays down a bed of rusty bass, sharp breakbeats and an array of cool scratches before dropping into Hendrix's "All Along The Watchtower". Last but definitely not least, WBBL finalises this big debut release deal with a show-stopping disco twist on Mariah Carey. Launch releases don't come any bigger than this.

Review: Fledgling label Funk Fusion have quickly hit the ground running - pushing their nu-funk agenda with joyous abandon. From the Sesame Street vibes of their promo pic, it's clear from the start that this label is all about having fun and their latest mash-up compilation "Fused Funk Vol 02" delivers it big time. There's 12 tough party tracks packed on here including the electro-hip-house of "Get Your Boogie On", the bleepy jump-up funk of "Hold On, I'm Comin" and the smooth retro closer "Danceflaw".

Don't Stop by Warson on Tru Funk Cue Track
Happy Song - (3:42) 127 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Warson
Review: Polish producer Warson has been providing funk-minded breakbeat heads with formidable dancefloor fare since 2011. Here, he pops up on his own Tru Funk imprint with another trio of tried-and-tested floorfillers. "Louder" kicks things off in style, lacing cut-up horns, funk vocal samples and bubbling electronics over a bass-heavy midtempo breakbeat-funk groove. "Love Theme" ups the tempo, basing the action around a classic loose-but-tight breakbeat rhythm. Musically, it has a richer and more expansive feel, with bouncy pianos, sharp strings and fluid funk guitars perfectly accompanying the two prominent vocal samples. He really lets loose on "Happy Song", a jump-up drum and bass roller built around samples from a heavyweight '70s funk rock jam.

Review: This latest offering from the shady Katakana Edits crew makes their previous offerings seem positively anemic by comparison. Boasting a whopping 22 tracks, it's almost certainly guaranteed to provide decent ammo for every house party imaginable. Highlights include the chugging electro dub sing-along "Shakka Boom" by DJ Clairvo, the p-funk meets disco of vibes of "Miami Freaks" by Lee Zamah and Timewrap's pumped up version of The Velvettes's perennial Motown classic, "He Was Really Sayin' Something".

Review: Canadian nu-funk upstart Bryx returns to Bomb Strikes after a brief hiatus with four more floor-shredding slammers. First up is a daring twist on Portishead. Taking the original's haunting undertones and ripping them into pieces with searing bass, it's a bold move but one that pays off. Elsewhere we get itchy and scratchy to the sawtooth heavy "Pop That", we get psychedelic and soulful on "Check It" and end on a raucous bass-ravaged high with "The Fool". Four big bass blasters, one cheeky release, Bryx is back and he's not taking any prisoners.

from $1.49
Review: Two albums for the price of one... Not only is this a fantastic showcase of Pimpsoul's mixing ability, DJ dynamics and selection skills, but, as individual tracks, Funk N Beats Volume 1 also acts as a great nu-funk collection. Joining the dots between formative genre-setters (Breakestra's "Cramp Your Style" and Skeewiff's "Feelin' Fine") to modern day dancefloor bangers (Rory Lyon's "I Got 5 On It" and Mr No Hands' "Feeling Fine") this touches every corner of the party-loving dancefloors. Nu-funk is riddled with label compilations but very few albums that reach further than in-house output. Big props to both Pimpsoul and Bombstrikes.

Review: Dj Badboe treats his four-track Pump Up The Funk EP to a grandiose remix package on his own Breakbeat Paradise Recordings. Although it's an EP categorised as breakbeat, a lot of the remixers draw influences from elsewhere, like the hip house Beastie Boys rap rock of Kool Kertz remix to "Introducing", or the soul cut-ups of the WBBL's remix to "Ghetto Funkalicious". The Captain looks to bit crushed, bleeping disco in their remix to "Sweet Games" while pop music similar to Lily Allen mixed with electro swing defines Listen To The JPOD's remix to "Hit The Maestro". Other styles embedded into this versatile package includes big beat (similar to Fatboy Slim), '90s UK house in (Chuddy's remake of "Green Power Funk") to chunky dub step. All bases, here, are covered.

from $1.49
Review: Originally released in 1999, Stanton Warriors' remix of Zac Toms' "Bring Me Down" was one of the West Country duo's earliest outings. Springing and vibing with turn-of-the-century UKG class, the original represents the act's roots with groove and distinction and still sounds amazing to this day. Rebooted 15 years later, it's still as fresh and funky. Highlights across this generous package include the jazzy keys on Odysseus's Dark House remix, the deep, dubby Serious Danger-style chugging vibe of Origin's remix and of course the swaggering chest-press breakbeats of the 2014 mix. Make no mistakes; this will never bring you down.

Not a dull moment in sight, this is a must for all breaks, glitch and nu-funk selectors.

Review: One of the funk and breaks scene's most enduring, influential players, Cut La Roc reminds us what's important in life: going to church on a Sunday morning and giving it up for the big bearded man above. Prayers don't come much funkier; with big soul elements oozing out of every element, it's an instant ticket to party heaven. Remix-wise we're spoilt for choice: Herbgrinder ups the gnarly bass factor, Roast Beatz adds a sprinkle of ghetto attitude to his blend while Fonkyson fuses the mix with lazer-strutting synths and shades of subtle slap bass. Cut La Roc has smashed it on this one. If only all sermons were this funky.

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.

This long player is a compilation of some of his finest work, featuring eight cuts of serious party breaks. Highlights include the tough rolling swagger of Patti Drew's version of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle", the breaky, electro-swing of "Shake It", the intense clap-along of "Alright Bossa" and the smile inducing Freddie Mercury goes breaky hip-house joys of "Another One Dusty Bossa".

Review: Welcome to the mid-2000s. A few years before Jalapeno took him on and developed him into the nu-funk guru he is today, but after he'd scored international kudos by syncing to an Apple advert "Channel Surfing", Featurecast was one of the biggest bootleg barons on the scene. 21st century big-beat and turbo-hip-hop, Goodgroove released some of the cheekiest sample-heavy tunes of his early career. And here they are in all their remastered glory. Highlights include the Wild Cherry sampling bootie shaker "Funky White Brother" and the Vandross-DMX love-in "Get It On The Floor". If you weren't around the first time, now's your chance to catch up.

Review: This is a bit of a treat for funk breaks fans, as leading label Boogie Boutique gathers together a selection of its finest floor-filling bangers. With cheeky mash-ups and bootleg remixes from the likes of Hayz, Ursula 1000 and Nick Fonkyson, there's much to enjoy, not least the sheer silliness of some of the rump-shaking fusions. Check, for example, the anthemic grooves of Nine Lives The Cat's "Let Me In" (a brilliantly executed fusion of "Just Be Good To Me" and "Cross The Tracks") or Badboe's "Show Me Ghetto". None of the cuts will win you brownie points with chin-strokers, but they'll certainly smash up the dance - and that's all that matters.

Funky Feeling - (3:33)
from $1.49
Review: Polish funkateer DJ Twister upkeeps his sterling rep for cheeky party business with this crucial fist of funky reversions. First up is Mary J Blige's "Family Affair" where the smooth licks and tight drums complement the '90s star to such a degree it sounds like an official remix. Elsewhere we hear MC Hammer getting a harmonica-heavy twist on "Hammer Banger" while "Horny Break" gives a Mousse T classic a discofied sheen. Further on "The Real Funky Party" takes Mary Mary to the most soulful of pastures while "Funky Feeling" references a Pretty Lights/Black Eyed Peas over a Wiseguys style rhythm flex. With strong big beat flavours throughout, this is arguably one of Vinyl Cat's boldest, most accomplished collections so far.

Review: English nu-funker Conte Crux makes his debut on the mighty Breakbeat Paradise. Four cuts, each one coated with pure party persuasion with references and samples that every member of your floor will recognise. "Freak Money" fuses ODB with Missy Elliot with insanely funky results, "That's The Way" surges KC & The Sunshine Band to uptempo supremacy and "Take Me To The Q-Tip" lives up to its name thanks to a stunning funk riff and some of the Tribe Called Quest rapper's slickest spits. "With A Beat Like This" closes the show on a heady old school flex. Cue slamming breakbeats, soulful vocal cries and an array of snappy hip-hop samples - peaktime naughtiness is guaranteed.

Review: Funkosol/Tru Funk's dream team Warson and Chudy have been repping the nu-funk sound longer than most of their labelmates put together. Whether they're going solo or tagging up, each cut pumps and parties with groove cheekiness and musical mischief. Here we find them looking back over their past exploits, hand-picking the finest gems. Of which there are plenty. From the cool filtered deep house chops and LL Cool J lyrics on Chudy's "In The Club" to the disco struts and slap-bass fever of Waron's "DJ Is Not A Jukebox" via the premium funk horn blasts on their collaborative chop-slapper "Oldschool Shit", each one of these cuts will seduce any dancefloor within a 50 mile radius. Guaranteed.

Review: A brand new label dedicated to the nu-funk crusade, Funk Fusion are launching with a serious statement of booty-shaking intent. With concentrated mid tempo party vibes littered throughout the set, there are some genuinely unique examples of creativity here... Including the harmonica and slap-bass mischief of "Seems Like A Dream", the rich crooning dancehall vocal of Waykin Bakaman on "The Scury", the haunted house-level scratchy bass on "Monster". With other highlights coming from X-Ray Ted (a discofied version of Junior Senior) Phunk Sinatra (Busta Rhymes goes Bollywood) and Rory Hoy (gritty horn heaven that nods to Exit Planet Dust), this really is a fantastic way to launch a label.

Review: Four of Actual Sounds' most accomplished bootlegateers unleash their best blends for this exclusive four-tracker. Party insanity is guaranteed from the off: "Ice In Outer Space" fuses The Prodigy with Ice T, "Muppet Funk" takes the Animal's classic solo piece "Mahna Mahna" and charges it with a cool funk break, "The Real Ritz" grabs Eminem and flips him back to 1920s prohibition US while "Regulate The Dogg" closes the show with a very smooth marriage of "Drop It Like It's Hot" and Nate Dogg and Warren G's "Regulate". Seriously fruity funk: Each one is a peach.

Review: Dirty Dubster head to the Czech Republic's darkest, dirtiest dancehalls as they invite Supa John to the fold for his debut release. "Love Dem Bad" is brutal and bashy. Gravelly vocals a go-go; it's an instant grinder. "This Is Sensi Jam" is much more chilled as we relax into a soft sexy skank. "Gimmie Di Weed" takes a well-known Nextmen lick and flips it into a herb homage while "High Rope" completes the set with a shimmering skank and full focus on heartfelt R&B-esque vocals from Janelle Monae. An impressively accomplished debut.

Review: Dom and Mark Stanton fire up their rhythm machine and deliver one of their funkiest jams to date. Slippery, shaking, ultimately speaker quaking, the tight breakbeat groove is adorned by the slick spits of Eboi and given charming rubs from Dustin Hulton (industrial strength, drum-heavy vibes) and the currently unstoppable Mafia Kiss (a stripped back fusion of trap, garage and classic breakbeats). Each version is 100 per cent killer: the Stanton flame continues to burn bright.

Review: A stellar partnership for this latest volume in Bombstrikes' series of funk 'n' breaks party weapons, which came about after Ali B called in on Nick Thayer during a recent Australian tour. The pair fuse together a wild set of influences and sounds, as on opener "Music" which evokes Cypress Hill, Jay Z and classic '60s soul whilst still staying true to their block-rocking breaks sound. "NE Way" dips into a riff made famous by Dillinger and pimps it out gloriously with heavy drums while "Back To You" samples a line from one of De La Soul's classics and adds a Moog-ish bassline and all manner of funky sampled breaks.

Review: For the 20th instalment of the happy-go-lucky Bomb Strikes bootleg series, label regulars Moquee and Pimpsoul join forces. Those who've enjoyed their previous work will no doubt be salivating already - or at least dribbling profusely. "Keep Pounding" is typical of their cheeky, party-hearty style, turning shuffling classic "The Beat Goes On" into a snappy, stepping, glitch-laden breaks banger. "Let It Pop", meanwhile, wobbles and raves in all the right places, lacing a familiar hip-hop vocal over a typically pounding backdrop. Closer "Do It" sits somewhere between the two tracks, cutting up Chic's "Le Freak" and adding a silly, rectum-slackening bassline to propel things forward.

Review: Of all the kinds of biscuits we've heard of, we must admit to being stumped by this latest species, "Jazz Biscuits". Luckily mash-up man Tom Showtime is on hand to elaborate (if not quite fully explain) with the title track's lazy funk beats and Bootsy Collins pon-spliff-icating on top. Big '70s drums get fused with hazy guitar licks and movie samples on "The Short Mac", "Let's Call This One Funky" is a hypnotic techno pop loop, whilst Showtime's more familiar formula of combining vintage electro-funk jams with hip-hop vocals, returns for closer "Spaces & Places".

Review: If this was any more disco it would come complete with a personal love letter from David Mancuso himself. Lavish strings, feelgood chord progressions, emphatic vocals - this perky breakbeat jam spins the shiniest disco balls possible. Powered by tightly edited live drum breakbeats, it's an instant summer smash. Remix-wise BadboE throws down a warped bass flex and fatter drums, Robinson Grooves slows down the vibe and injects a bolder soul vocal and Jimi Needles presses the mellow button with washed out filtered guitars and a slower, steady rhythm. Get it indeed.

Review: This instalment in the long running Bombstrikes series sees Nick Thayer teaming up with fellow Aussie breakbeat producer and self-styled DubRave don Will Styles on this pair of incendiary party starters. "Party People" is a bouncing, "Where's Your Head At" sampling gem which utilises its numerous hip-hop cut ups to great effect, its shining robot electro vibe guaranteed to get you moving. "Shake Like Ya Mama" meanwhile is equally as fun, taking the classic riff from "Walk This Way" and fattening it up with analogue leads and more infectious hip-hop vocal work.

And that's only three examples. Get Scouring.

The next logical step was to actually release this stuff, so here's the impressive debut compilation snappily called Scoured Cream. Originally intended to showcase just five tunes, its now boasts eight including the stop-start blues-hop of "Sun No Shine", the wobble-soul of "Hell Yeah" and some electro-swing courtesy of Hong Kong Ping Pong.

Review: Whether you were there or not, the hardcore period between '91 and '93 remains one of the most fertile fields of inspiration for producers of all generations; the simple-but-effective riffs, the detuned synths, the skippy breakbeats - they'll never fail to ignite a strong sense of dancefloor happiness. Here we find Punks' latest signing Pirate Jams successfully applying all the classic motifs with authenticity and funk. It's so well executed it'll have you ordering a job lot of white gloves before you know it. Remix-wise Freaks' Justin Harris slows the vibe down and injects a thick serum of acid while Howla lowers the tempo even more and whacks us sideways with a tearing bassline and euphoric sub melody. Happy days? They certainly are.

Review: The origin of moombahton is largely credited to some dude in the States who, in 2009, remixed DJ Chuckie's Moombah in a reggaeton style...for his cousin's party. Who knows if that's true, but the genre sure did spread like wildfire. Here we have a selection of artists doing it 2014-style-ee and it's great to see it in as rude health as ever. Highlights include the vintage Cuban tropicala of Sabo's "Havana Dub" and the deep and mysterious Jungle rhythms, panpipes and all, of No Joda's "Mionyae" which also features Sabo.

Review: Back with their second release, Disco Cakes assemble a talented mix of breaks producers of all different styles and collect them on this new, funk-fuelled set. Tom Drummond and JMC have fun with Daft Punk's "Robot Rock" on "Again & Again & Again", while big soulful vocals can be found on The Dancefloor Outlaws "Get Your Boogie Down" and Delimentary's "Why Can't There Be Love". Slynk and Ed Solo meanwhile update Skee Lo's evergreen "I Wish" in a whole new breaks-tinted way.

from $1.49
Review: Whatever you think of the artistic merits of bootleg mash-ups, they remain an integral part of DJ culture. What's more, these cheeky mash-ups often do more damage on dancefloors than the original material. This EP from the Booty Fruit camp - the third installment in the popular Proper Produce series - features four more bespoke bootleg jams destined to cause maximum dancefloor pleasure. There's a studied tastefulness to the lazy hip-hop reggae of DJ Maars' "Come Dancing", while the boom bap hip-hop funk of Prince Pimms and General Tack's "Bad Influence" is so expertly crafted it sounds like an original production. There's a tasty, sophisticated skank to Livingston and Canosis' "Hold It Down", while the fat beats of Cris Crucial's "Like Dis" casually steer clear of silliness.

from $1.49
Review: It's a Southsea/Melbourne showdown as Maars and Showtime collide for a series of sparkling slices of dub-informed booty business. "Rakim Riddim" takes Rakim's "Heat It Up" and lays it down softly over a Levy-style digi dub groove. Elsewhere we find "Still D.R.E" laid down over a buoyant skank while Biggie's "Big Poppa" gets the Trojan treatment. Impeccable funk fusion on an international level.

Shine Like A Halo - (4:54) Biggest-selling track on this release
Bombstrikes Vol 18 by Badboe on Bomb Strikes Cue Track
Masterpiece - (4:55)
from $1.49
Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from bootleg specialists Bombstrikes - tried-and-tested mash-ups underpinned by floor-friendly breakbeats. This latest instalment comes from rising breaks star Badboe, who offers two soul-flecked groovers. Both are slightly less hectic and full-throttle than previous Bombstrikes releases, but that's no bad thing. "Shine Like A Halo" fuses a bouncing, midtempo break with wobbly (but surprisingly subtle) bass, the obligatory hip-hop samples and a dash "Son of a Preacher Man". "Masterpiece", meanwhile, takes a similarly soulful approach, contrasting Jurassic 5 raps with sweet soul vocal snatches at a dancefloor hip-hop tempo. The most cultured Bombstrikes release for some time - and that's a compliment.

Dribbly Dribbly Sound - (3:55)
from $1.49
Review: The thing about most mash-up releases is that they're all about delivering delirious party-heavy thrills. This tenth instalment in the Disco Cakes series does this and then some. "Freak" sees the vocals of Adina Howard's filthy '90s hit "Freak Like Me" layered over a some pretty tough breaks - guaranteed to result in swinging from the rafters if played at silly o'clock. "Scat Empire" may not sound like any empire you'd want to be ruled by, but this bouncy, breaky banger will rule any floor you play it too. Finally "Dribbly Dribbly Sound" goes heavy dubstep for a furious finale. Tasty cakes!

Review: Can Boogie Boutique put a foot wrong at the moment? We don't think so. And here's some solid sonic proof from New Zealand-based label mainstay Funk Ferret. Joined by emerging funkster Imagine This, the duo have created a sprightly party bomb with rapid fire lyrics and a salaciously squidgy electro-inspired bass-hook. There are remixes galore; party baron Cut La Roc doffs his cap to hip-hop's glory days, Nick Fonkynson gets all gritty and vicious while DJ Alias & Benson drop the tempo for a classic exercise in extreme nu funk rudiments.

Defunk - "Banjo Blues" - (4:44) 154 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Canadian vibe masters ReSoul recruit some die-heard funk soldiers for their third "Fully Loaded" EP and each track is a wise move. The unavoidable Basement Freaks gets devilish with a dubstep bass and funky breakbeat with a deft slice of Cypress Hill. Funkanomics digs deep for a lavish string-hook that never stops shimmering. Slynk & SkiiTour rediscover the BeeGees with added electro boogie bravado. Wood 'n' Soo pull your trousers down for a savage bass spanking while Defunk's "Banjo Blues" finalises with a very clever nod to Blackstreet. ReSoul we salute you!

Review: More party antics from Mooqee as this latest in the Bombstrikes series of funky mash-ups takes in KRS-One jammin' with Bob Marley on "Supacat Police", while acapellas from Tupac's "California Love" and Stetasonic's "Talking All That Jazz" butt heads with each other over a flute-led hip-hop beat on "Jazz Talkin". The "Mustapha Dance" instrumental mix of The Clash's "Rock The Casbah" also gets a good seeing to on closing track "Hypnotic".

Review: Booty Fruit's DJ Maars joins forces with newcomer Tom Showtime for some seriously delicious sound mash-ups for this EP. "Heatwave Episode" is a funked-out re-edit of Dr.Dre's and Snoop Dogg's infamous "The Next Episode", whilst "Hungry Busta" puts a real dancehall vibe over Busta Rhyme's inimitable vocal machine-gun bursts. "Rocksteady Up" re-fixes yet another early 2000's hip hop gem "Ante-Up", and "Champion Steez" goes all breakbeat/ska mode, introducing some rather rapacious Jamaican lyrics over that booty-shaking groove.
