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: 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: From their recent online musings, it seems that the award-winning Scour Records seem to be as equally fond of the other type of swinging as they are the style of music they've done so well at releasing thus far. Thankfully here we're only about the music and what a lot of it there is on Scoured Swing Vol 1. Here label owner DJ Spinforth selects eight of the best new jams around. 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: Although the cover of this latest instalment in the Paradise Breaks series echoes the famously trippy sleeves of '70s prog rockers like Yes, the music couldn't be more modern. Actually that said, many of the productions on here do plunder the '70s for inspiration but they choose funk over wizard's capes and that. Highlights include the mighty "Bad Mother" which combines raw soul divas vocals, wah-wah guitars and thumping break beats, J-Sounds' tight and groovy break-funk jam "On And On" and the super catchy shuffle-pop gem "Nobody Else" by Arteo. A totally mixed bag and all the better for it.

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".

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!

Dance Now - (3:05) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: An Australian based in London, producer Frankee More gives the occasional instalment of frothy party fun. There's no fear of groundbreaking sounds here or deep navel gazing, it's all about cheeky giggles on the dancefloor. Here we have another two such sizzlers to enjoy. First up, "This Feeling" fuses a laid-back electro-funk bassline with an impassioned soul vocal and a sax solo. On the digital flipside lurks "Dance Now", basically an update of C&C Music Factory's Everybody Dance Now that, if played at the right time, will blow the roof off any self-respecting house party. Job done.

Review: Funky Breaks, Ghetto Funk, Nu Funk, Glitch Funk, Nu Skool & Old Skool Breaks: you name it, they got it! London's Funk Fusion are back with Fused Funk Volume 16, which is a whopper of a compilation; 17 servings of block rockin' beats which will suit any occasion.. almost! Some of the highlights on here (and there's quite a few) are: "More Diggity" by Jay Tip; no guesses what this is a remix of (hint: Blackstreet!) but there's no hints for which rock'n roll classic got mashed up with jump-up drum and bass on Phat Bangers Club's "Wah Wah Everybody". Elsewhere, Sticky Icky's "I Wanna Hold You" takes the timeless classic by The Beatles and injects it with some tough breaks.

Review: There's no denying Funk Fusion definitely live up to their name; take these first two tracks which sample and flip Kool & The Gang and Tribe Called Quest numbers into something new and different for 2015. There's also a cheeky garage remake of Basement Jaxx, and for something slower check out the hip hop throw down of Aretha Franklin's "Say A little Prayer For You" by KMT. And have you heard Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" pitched against Sean Paul lyrics? Well you have now. Something for everyone.

Review: Stanton Warriors' Punks label is on fire right now with hardly a week going by without some killer new dancefloor slayers arriving from this imprint. The latest bass grenade from this stable is Brain by Outlord, and boy it doesn't disappoint! Presented as 'two classic 808 ragga re-rubs', the title track kicks off with some seriously muscular thump, and classic rave/hardcore breaks and sirens. Next up "Down The House" evokes memories of early Prodigy by teaming vintage reggae samples with doomy ghetto beats. Tailor made for festivals these two jams will set your summer alight.

Review: Welcome to the sunkissed and free world of Swing Set Sounds, a label committed to sunshine melodies and grooves. Having cleverly built interest in this, their first artist compilation, by revealing a track at a time, the album is set to put the label (and the artists!) firmly on the map. Highlights include the slow and low organic hip-hop grooves of "Imagine This" by Shimi Sonic, the big drummed funky breaks of "Watch The Man" by D-Funk and the sparse Latin grooves of "La Majeur" by The Fritz. Once you visit this world, you won't want to leave.

Review: There's been a gaping hole in the world of cheeky mash up scamps since Australian melodic breaks hero DJ Axe entered radio silence a couple of years ago. Now he has chosen to re-establish his party boogie transmissions through the medium of an LP called City Funk. There are 14 new works to ingest; enough to provide sustenance to a millions house parties for years to come. Highlights include the sunny go-go influenced title track, the blissful cascading synth funk of "Bells" and the totally cool vintage breakdance joy of "Push 'Em Up".

Review: UK purveyours of funky breaks, Bombstrikes Records, may have a controversial name but there's everything to love about their sound. The fun loving and dancefloor bothering label run by Mooqee & Beatvandals was founded in 2004 and they claim that if you have been to a club since then you will most likely have heard their releases. Well then! Starting off with the low slug funk of A Skillz's "Mooger Fooger (dub mix)", Mooqee & Beatvandals themselves appear with "Back Up" and the legendary Cut La Roc is still at it; "Sunday Morning People" (Herbgrinder remix)" proves that he's still got his finger on the pulse. Other highlights include Pimpsoul's ever soulful "Is This Love (feat Pat Fulgoni - Pimpsoul funk remix)" the street attitude of A Skillz & Beatvandals "Simply Playing (feat Real Elements)" and the legendary Martin Solveig (remixed by the equally legendary Mousse T) who appears with the James Brown sampling "I'm A Good Man".

Review: A former hard junglist who defected to the chilled world of dub and reggae, LA's 6Blocc, has found a whole new lease of life. Usually found jetsetting around the globe spinning tunes, he's taken a break from his busy schedule to deliver Bassline Bangers Vol 2. There are six raw cuts to be found here with highlights including the rolling sing-a-long rasta anthem "Fiyah Tyme", the I Got Five On It-referencing warehouse garage of "Changes" and the clap-heavy booty bouncer "Sundayz". Dope!

Review: Party breaks producers always say that it takes a long life of slogging before you make it to heaven, but not for this mash-up king who had reached Breakbeats Paradise early. 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: 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.

Typo (Doctor Jeep remix) - (4:59) 130 BPM

Review: The Stanton Warriors-run Punks imprint is back with Welsh act Aloka who serves us with two cuts of razor sharp breaks. "Typo" is definitely inspired by dubstep with its dark aesthetics and low frequency pressure and ragga-style vocal samples. Brooklyn's Doctor Jeep gets on board for a remix of the track which gets more of a hands in the hair party starting vibes with more bass pressure and druggy whirry melodies to whip the crowd into a frenzy.

Review: Stanton Warriors have been on a mission to bring us the finest broken beat and heavy bass on Punks Music since 2001. Here the debut volume of the their new 'Punks Selection' series is curated by Mafia Kiss and focuses in 'on the deeper/stripped sounding side of the label's roster'. There is a whopping 22 track featured, as well as a one-hour DJ mix. Highlights include the urgent, haunted bounce of "The Oracle" by Leda Stray, the sultry, late night breakbeats of "K2" by Aloka and the scattershot ghetto beats of "Check Me Out" by Sly One.

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!

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

Review: Here we have some old skool flavours concocted by a new skool duo, the improbably named Slappin Plastic & MC Shureshock. It Shocks Pt 1 sees the eponymous anthem by this Aussie duo reworked by two contemporaries. First up, funk maestro (self-proclaimed, mind) Pimpsoul mixes the original's vintage block rockin' vibes with some seriously muscular contemporary big beat funk. Next we get the original mix from Slappin Plastic & MC Shureshock which takes into more hands-in-the-air party rap territory. Can't wait to see what Pt 2 will entail.

Our tops picks have to be Phibes' "Needles" for thos soulful vocal samples, "Rockin' Cold" by Rollomatik and Cockney Nutjob's "Firepower" for the undeniable comic effect of that sample...you'll know what we mean!

Review: Paul Woolford's first Special Request material since signing to XL, he's gone right back to the roots (roots which XL helped dig and plant themselves) with nine tracks of heady, sweaty rave evangelism. Labelled as three EPs in one, it's as good as 2013's debut album with every track tailored for the dancefloor. From the brain-melting warped bass and tension/release of the title track we dig deep into breakbeat science... "Amnesia" is the sound of 1991 when hardcore first found its feet, "Reset It" tips it cap to A Guy Called Gerald, "Damage" ups the ice factor with synths so cold they could make Randall shiver while "Take Me" and "Simulation" are both unfettered love letters to the earliest chapters of the Whistle Crew. We could go on, but we're pretty sure you know the score... Hardcore.

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.

For some electro-swing vibes check out "Golden Boy" and get tropical on "Real Smooth". Consider your next fiesta sorted!

Review: Washington funksters Fort Knox Five have played a major role in the party breaks scene with such confidence and consistency it feels like they've been around for much longer than 10 years. Here we find their explorative, far-reaching range under the knife of their finest peers. 15 tracks in total, each one highlighting a different aspect of the FKF's repertoire: Krafty Kuts and Skillz add a UK booty-bass twist to "Radio Free DC", Rodney Hunter adds a sense of Vandross-level disco silk to "Uptown Tricks", Badboe emphasises the raw organic soul swing of "What Make Ya Dance" while Featurecast ramps up "Killa Soundboy" with P-funk naughtiness. And that's just the tip of this funky iceberg. A consummate celebration of a decade of bona fide party artistry, here's to the next 10 years.

Review: Phibes specialises in delivering no-nonsense floor filling party jams. His Ghetto Beats release from late last year undoubtedly soundtrack many a Christmas and New Year party. 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".

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.

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".

Review: As you might've guessed, Bluntskull ain't no Clinton, this guy inhales and doesn't care who knows it. He has a similar approach to his music and here he invites everybody all back to his for the "Bluntskull & Friends EP". We get four such friendly jams here (the first two are solo cuts), "Gun Gospel" being a killer hybrid of 4/4 breaks and reggae gangster vibes, whilst "Whine Ya Waist" is a hypnotic slice of 21st century digi-dancehall. Chris Crucial gives the former a '90s urban make over and El Bomba gives the latter a pumping party orientated twist.

Review: There's no stopping Stanton Warriors' Punks label this summer, with heavy dancefloor artillery arriving on a seemingly weekly basis. This latest missive though, is particularly special. Punks resident beat maker Marten Horger has joined forces with bass obsessed act Donkong to create one-track monster, "Feel". Clocking in at four and a half minutes, the track is like nothing else around: a moody fusion of breaks, electro, trap and deep bassy bounce, which will guarantee unforgettable hands-in-the-air moments at festivals from here to Timbuktu!

Review: Featurecast has been dabbling in groove and funk for quite a while now. Matter of fact, in his own words he has been on a mission to "funk his way across the globe with his own brand of.. mid-tempo Breaks, Hip-Hop, Funk, D&B and downright dirty Bass together in his own remarkable way". The Shout It Out LP comes courtesy of the UK's funkiest dance label Jalapeno. Highlights include the hip-hop/heavy metal crossover of "Shout It Out" featuring Illvis Freshly's killer rhyming, the electro infused breaks of "No One Left" featuring Greg Blackman's soulful vocals and the funky block rocking beats of "What You Want" featuring the mad skills of Pugs Atomz, Wes Restless & Ill Legit.
