Review: Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's recent Vinyl TV show depicted the birth of New York black party culture with the mighty Kool Herc at the helm. Here Dr Packer riffs off that same imagery too, even if his edits are more in the disco vein than that of Herc's hard funk breaks. There are a whopping six edits to wrap your ears around here, highlights include sensuous 70s boogie, complete with electro bassline, of "Disco Lovin", the protracted hiNRG New Order loops of "Monday Blues" and the shimmering, dry ice soul of "Chocolate Boogie". Fun music for fun times!

Review: Hot on the heels of Tru Thoughts' recent Tasty Beats compilation, the firmly party orientated label has rustled up a tenth instalment of their Party Breaks series. Now it's time to shake it up at every house party you can find this summer! Highlights include Bang N Mash's funky old skool Eric B mash-up "I Got Soul", Chudy's "So What?" which intertwines the Tom Tom Club and Destiny's Child to sizzling effect and finally DJ Clairvo who fuses big beat, ragga and vintage organ stabs on "Here Me Now All Massive". Boom!

Review: The Danish may be all serious about design, but when it comes to partying the Breakbeat Paradise crew prove that they can be as frivolous as the rest of us. Here they've rustled up a bumper packed collection of cheeky if disposable mash-ups and edits of the kind that'll go down a storm in bars and house parties. There are six offerings some highlights of which include the squelchy retro funk breaks of "Walk In Place" by F-Block, the cut-up go-go boogie of "Free Wheelin Franklin" by Kibosh and the raw big beat swing hybrid "Hit Em Hard" by Blitzkrieger.

Review: Famed for their Stank Soul Edits vinyl series, Mako & Mr Bristo return on Funk Blasters with the mightily titled, Electric Bongo Disco. The name captures the vibes on here pretty well - four vintage cuts loved for their breaks gently souped up for modern dance floors. Opener is "Sugar Hill Bongos", which lovingly updates a Sugarhill Gang classic. Elsewhere "Hype Fresh Mine" is poppy disco meets hip house, "Refried Beans" is a sweet vintage B-boy gem and "Electric Ruffneck" really goes there, sampling Edie Grant and somehow making it actually sound cool! Now that's talent.

Review: The clue is in the title here as Brighton-based funk label Jalepeno have rounded up fifteen of the best soul sister cuts from their mighty catalogue. Boasting a mix of old and new, and spanning quite a few different styles too, this compilation couldn't have come soon enough. Some of the many highlights featured include the powerful and bluesy soul-bearing opener, "Reckoning" by Iro FitzRoy, the candy floss tones of Berenice Van Leer on the 80s-tastic "My Mind' Made Up" by Kraak & Smaak and the muscular harmonies of Farina Miss on Featurecast's "Ego Tripping".

Review: Nuremberg's Jayl Funk is becoming one of the most important producers and DJs in the funky breaks scene. He returns on his own Honkey Phonk label with "Across The Sea (Club version)" a soul funk excursion in the vein of Teddy Pendergrass or Chic but hey don't ask us, ask the DJ or keep diggin' Daddy O! There's also two killer remixes at hand; first up is Funkonomics with a rendition which goes for a more stripped and '80s sound with synth funk bass, 808 hi-hats and vocoded vocals. Finally DJ Love's remix is definitely the party starter on here, with its hip-hop inspired block rocking' beats.

Review: Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".

Take Me - (6:44) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
I Don't Care - (6:32) 126 BPM
from $1.93
Review: From Four40 to Project Allout, UK bass scientist Tuff Culture has shown us many sides of his artistic persona. If we want to keep things topline, this guy can make just about any form of UK dance music; he's given us dubstep, a little trap, some house, and now two new garage-leaning joints. "Take Me" is deep and pensive, but once the main hook drops it's an infectious drum affair with a growling, penetrative bassline. "I Don't Care" is a more typical garage tune because of its twisted, dusty drum pattern, but the sounds within are anything but what you'd normally expect from a 90's garage track. Wait for that switch, too.

Review: UK breakbeat legends the Stanton Warriors are back on their own beloved Punks imprint with a new single entitled "Hoping" which gets a bunch of seriously kick ass remixes. First up is Stuttgart, Germany's Marten Harrger with his rendition; hard garage/2 step if we've ever heard it! Bristol's Jay Robinson is up next and takes the track down a darker and wonkier route; loved this one! The Left/Right remix is definitely the fiercest effort on offer, with some serious bass and a relentless shuffle. Finally it's over to The Vanguard Project who give the track some serious stadium drum and bass flavour that would make even Sigma stand up and notice.

Review: The unstoppable force that is Funk Fusion are back with a killer edition of their Fused Funk series of funk, breaks and wicked crossover beats. Are they already up to number 18 already, like woah! We'll give you only one guess which Jimi Hendrix classic Sticky Icky's "Foxy Loxy" samples. Or how about the wicked White Stripes cover; breaks style, named "Seven Nation Skarmy" by Head Honcho. Other honourable mentions must go to the very James Brown sounding "Try It Again" by Batchy Scrollox and the block rocking party beats of Ghetto Cats "The Winehouse". No guesses who they sampled on that one!

Review: There are no holidays to be had at Punks HQ this year, what with the release of their BBQ Beats comp and a new single from Left/Right +Jacq. Following on from the huge Can't Stop, this new jam, "Lies" will only keep the hype coming. The original is pure cinematic gothic vibes with brooding bass hums and morbid vocals. The remixes are livelier affairs however - Billy Kenny drops the BPMs a tad for his riotously sleazy tech-bass monster of mix. A tough act to follow, but Aloka brings it with a remix full of stark drum and bass-meets-breaks mayhem.

Review: Four reggae-riddled bootlegs from breakbeat's favourite Nutjob. We kick off with a bulbous flip on Desmond Dekker's "Easy" before 'lively mode' is activated with a very well polished take on a classic reggae version of Smokey Robinson's "My Girl". You want to get even livelier? Look no further than "Heads Boppin'", Nutjob's twist on The Selector's "On My Radio". "I'm Skankin' Out" is the cherry on top of this very tasty cake. Adding a Jamaican sparkle to the Diana Ross sampling Biggie classic, Nutjob's successfully fused hip-hop, disco, reggae and breaks all into one track... And he's done so in style.

Review: A breakers banquet sounds like quite a messy affair - all those head spinning moves sending plates of food flying in all directions. Cris Crucial's Flawless EP thankfully fails to make a mess. Instead he delivers and unapologetically retro riot of late-80s, early-90s hip house jams that are all about the party. Highlights include the big beat scratch-a-thon "Anything Funky", the laid-back gangster funk of "Big Crucial Thing" and the 60s funk-sampling instrumental "Trouble Bucket".

That said Tom Showtime has paid his dues too with years of delivery the party ammunition. Here he joins forces with the aforementioned label to provide more of the usual light-hearted floorfillers. There are five jams to enjoy here including the funky, Fresh Prince-era hip-hop vibes of "Supernaturalflow", the tough breaky grooves of the Salt-N-Pepa-sampling, "Dancefloor Seasoning" and the sunshine vibes of dubby dancehall jam, "King Of Clubs".

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.

As We Do Our Thing - (4:04) 130 BPM

Review: The Allergies are duo (DJ Moneyshot and Rackabeat) who hail from Bristol. However unlike many a fellow Bristolian, these guys don't produce bone-rattling bass productions, instead they opt for the 'feel-good, energetic ear candy' of mashed-up funk, soul, disco and breaks. Their album, As We Do Our Thing, is out now, and here we have two tracks culled from it. First up, "Love's Supposed To Be" fuses twangy, Fatboy Slim/Wiseguys-style '90s big beat with a soaring soul vocal, whilst on the digital flipside the album's title track is all about loose '60s R&B/soul loops - pure party (guilty) pleasures!

Review: Some people have incorrectly dubbed Switzerland as being well, a bit boring. This is nonsense of course, and, with their cheeky mash-up productions, Swiss duo The Niceguys take great delight in proving the haters wrong. The EP's title alone sets the tone - Joy indeed. There are two incendiary party jams featured here - "Pride & Joy" leads the way, taking Marvin Gaye's ode to fatherhood and setting it to a slow trumpet-stab-lead hip-hop groove. Providing a contemporary foil to the latter, "Get Up" sees classic Nate Dogg (and Eve!) set to a lively electro-house backbone. Feel the party joy!

Review: Here they are at it again, fusing, twisting and sampling all the hits, obscurities and bangers you've come to love over the years; be they hip hop, electro, pop, funk or rock. Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!

Throwdown (Latin Freestyle mix) - (5:23) 126 BPM
from $1.93
Review: For the seventh volume in Optimo Music's Disco Plate series, JD Twitch has recruited Alex Warren AKA Kiwi, whose previous releases on Blase Boys Club were particularly well received. "Throw Down" is arguably his most ambition cut yet: a cover version of Carmen's cult 1986 electrofunk jam of the same name that comes in two contrasting versions. On the virtual A-side you'll find Warren's original version, where Ciara Holder's confident, nuanced vocal rides a chunky synth bassline, clipped guitars, sparkling synthesizer flourishes and an unfussy, toe-tapping drum machine rhythm. Arguably even better is the Latin Freestyle mix, which sounds like a long lost Latin Rascals production with additional, spine-tingling piano riffs.

Complete Madness - (4:36) 128 BPM

Review: Well known for leaving festivals in their native Canada in tatters, Smalltown DJs have called in extra artillery for their latest festival-friendly assault, the Bout To Go Down EP. Not that their productions don't work in a club, of course they do, but their energy is so epic that a roof couldn't' contain them! The title track is only three and a bit minutes long but it packs some serious punch, switching between 4 x 4 jabs and breaky fills and breakdowns. On the digital flip, "Complete Madness", is a sleeker, sleazier, late night bass/house hybrid. Hype!

7 Day Weekend - (3:39) 55 BPM
from $1.93
Review: A. Skillz (aka Londoner Adam Mills), is a committed funkateer with a mission to reach the top. None more so than on 7 Day Weekend, his latest jam, which offers more than just a passing nod to the good time boogie vibes of Mark Ronson's worldwide smash Uptown Funk. Much like the Ronson track, this tune is three and a half minutes of pop-funk class, complete with early 80s bass squelches, catchy anthemic chorus, digi-brass and general key-tar craziness. Welcome to you, new earworm, you soon won't be singing anything else!

The "Mustapha Dance" instrumental mix of The Clash's "Rock The Casbah" also gets a good seeing to on closing track "Hypnotic".

Review: This is a first for all parties: JFB's first official mix, Ghetto Funk's first artist-fronted compilation and Disco Cakes' first ever long playing release. Needless to say each party has really stepped up; JFB has curated a mammoth 37-track adventure exploring every possible corner of Ghetto Funk's sprawling sonic scenery, ranging from wholesome, down-home country funk (Grinny Granddad "Good Girl"), slick ragga-swing (Stickybuds "Clean Air") bump-shuffling electro ghetto (Featurecast "Around The Block") and raw, teeth-clenching bass filth (Skullee - "Badboii"). Leaving no stone unturned, this documents the Ghetto Funk movement with immersive mischief, AND it comes with a killer DJ mix.

Review: Mysterious Soundcloud edit fiend Leygo is back on Docta Hooka's Relative Dimensions. Nominated for Best new label in the 2014 Breakspoll International Breakbeat Awards; and that's nothing to scoff at! On "Sleng Teng 2016" he kicks off the party in explosive fashion; if these aren't block rocking beats then when we don't know what is. Not to mention their message regarding that notorious white powder. The jagged beat of "Heading High" is reminiscent of DJ Zinc's progressive drum and bass experiments in the early noughties complete with ragga style MC vocals. Finally, on the tough four to the floor stomp "Skanking High" it goes for more of a hooligan house vibe which will equally bring the house down.

Review: Hankies at the ready... This 30 track best-of set is Ground Level's final release. Celebrating eight years of fuelling the breaks scene with exciting and authentic original material, the label boss Andy McAllister has decided to close its doors and get busy on a new project called Four Three Six. As with any well-selected best of compendium, each and every track is a highlight. But if we're going to pick a few that really sum up the unique spirit of Ground Level then chow straight down on the Orbital-on-triplets vibe of Stylus Rex's "Spangle Wagon", Rebel Sketchy's super-slam bass jam "The Ride" and Andy's very own "The Theme". With its mischievous horns, hype-rising riff and techy undertones, it acts as a great final salute to a game in which they've scored many many wins. Ground Level will be sorely missed.

"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.

Highlights include the classy, laid back opener "About Me" by The Fritz, the dubstep-meets-Charleston vibes of "Swingers" by Father Funk and the epic electro-swing monster "Cufflinks & Caviar" by Tuxedo Junction.

Review: It's been a while since Irish party slappers Dirty Dubster delivered a ragga package but here we find them making up for lost time with four rock steady heaters. No genre unturned, each cut reps ragga's broadest reaches: "Walk Like A Champ" swings low with a guttural dancehall feel, "Bangerz N' Goulash" tips a nod at a Diplo classic over a salubrious digidub groove while "Follow Me" shreds up on a high energy D&B flex. For most, though, the key cut will be KayPod's Marley-mashing "Could You Be Push Forward". Could this be loved? Yes siree.

Review: Washington DC breakbeat duo Fort Knox Five presents yet more killer remixes of Pressurize The Cabin, originally released a year and a half ago. Starting out with the Eighteenth Street Lounge affiliated Ursula 1000, who delivers a low slung and funky rendition of "Ready Go" which will rock the dancefloor of any party, there's also a handy instrumental version for serious DJs. Meanwhile Palletz delivers a bass heavy, very UK makeover of "24 Hours To Set It Off" complete with ragga vocals which will storm any serious soundclash. Interestingly enough, this fella is from British Columbia, Canada; who'd have thought! Again, a handy instrumental version is included of this remix too.

Well now it's Spring and he's decided its time for a follow up. Volume 2 has a hip-hop theme, beginning with opener "Gangstas N Honeys" where a classic Nas rap is set to a perky, tough big beat backing track. Vintage sounding brass is added to the crowd-pleasing formula on "Real Hip Hop", "Belong To You" mixes electro and 70s soul and things wrap up with the arms-in-the-air anthem "Getting Funky Round Here".

Elsewhere we get sizzling tropical Latin bass on Bombo Rosa's "Salto Batida", brooding, sultry UKF on Skapes & Jamie George's "Serious", haunted breaks on the Warriors' own "Where's The Beef?" and the dreamy melancholy of the freestyle pop jam "Move My Soul" by Mafia Kiss and Alison Levi. A decent summer collection if ever there was one.

Review: Four explosive bootlegs from Bristol badman X-Ray Ted (or X-Ray Edward as he's known on his birth certificate). First up is a low-tempo swagger jack rendition of Mary Jane Girls "All Night Long". The heavenly vocal remains intact while mid-range bass worms and wriggles amid the beats. "The Two" flips us up the tempo while D.O.C's Dre-produced "It's Funky Enough" gets a savage nu-funk turbo charge. "Don't Stop" sees Usher, Lil Jon and Ludacris's "Yeah" get a Michael Jackson-level revamp while "Let's Groove" revisits Earth Wind & Fire with gusto. Each one guarantees serious floorplay.

Review: Over their 15 year career, London's Freestylers have covered the full spectrum of the bass music genre. They have played all the biggest festivals and clubs around the world, had huge hits like "Push Up" and "Painkiller" plus there was even that appearance on the Top of The Pops. Their album Pressure Point was their second full length, originally released in 2001 on Freskanova. We may very well be preaching to the choir here, but it's a wicked album and includes the singles "Get Down Massive", with its funky breaks, ragga rhyming and trance arpeggio. There's also the urban soul of "Told You So" featuring Petra's powerful vocals and of course the block rocking' party vibes "Weekend Song".

Played by: Jayl Funk, THE NICEGUYS
Review: Italian maverick, Tosses, has graced many labels such as Tru Funk, Pig Balls and er, Total Wipes. Here he's sticking to what's done him well lately - the stability of Electric Cave. Here he provides three more of what he does best- funked-up mash-ups. The eponymous title track takes vintage James Brown and adds some tough go-go style drums underneath. Elsewhere the party vibes keep coming on the cheeky keyboard-pop of the breakbeat Doors hybrid "East Soul Project" and last but not least, the bluesy, hand-waver "Hand Clappin". Party music central.

Review: Tru Funk have cooked up yet another funk feast, and there's plenty at the table for everyone. Maars kicks off proceedings with a skank-soaked ode to Biggie's "Machine Gun Funk". Chudy, meanwhile, presses the disco button with a series of well-known disco licks and piano hooks. Further on we find Shaka Loves You fusing Stevie Wonder and DJ Kool with infectious results and we get lively to Mako & Mr Bristow's firing Motown jungle flavours. Finally Warson maintains the 170 vibe for the EP climax as "Feel Good" rolls with sizzling soulful charm. Yummy.

Review: Nuremberg's Jurgen Ludwig, aka Jayl Funk, knows his soul music inside and out and here he delivers four fresh new jams via Goodgroove. They're all pretty high quality scalpel jobs, as per usual. "SixxThree Aight" is all heavy breaks and tight licks, "Piece Of Mine" is some classy disco funk, "Supernatural Babe" is some excellent low down boogie and "Still Together" is a hands-in-the-air 70s soul gem.

Review: In search of B Side tracks your best ports of call are labels like Big M Productions, Ghetto Funk and of course the producer's own B Side. This release sees B Side land on the prolific Breakbeat Paradise Recordings with a filter-funkin', rock-steady five-track with the block party beats of "Joy" a highlight. The disco vibes of this EP come out most on "Lets Do It", while the whole EP brims with upfront basslines and in your face rappin'.
