Review: For a label that only launched this spring, four volumes of creatively executed party jams is beyond impressive. We reckon this could be Funk Fusion's best yet, too. From Rhythm Scholar's respectfully tripped out twist on "Lucy In The Sky" to Fabioulous Barker's slap-bass blazed take on Skeelow via the funkiest ever version of 2Pac's "California Love", it's an impressive collection that leans towards the more subtle art of editing rather than crass bootleg cut-and-shuts and will have a lot more timeless appeal as a result.

Review: If you like your funk and breakbeats a little dirtier, than Funk Fusion have the grease to grind those gears. Terry Wagun drops a wobbly, saw-wave bassline over a choral of Lily Allen vocals in the opening track, while Mr Bristow slugs out some dirty low-end similar to Mr Oizo's "Analog Worms Attack" in his addition. For a crunchy, slowed down, stoners version of Pharrell's "Happy" there's 2RUD's "Happy Ska" - and don't forget Dave Gerrad's mashup of Queen and Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" in his Funkadelic "Kurtis Breaks". Some bass-heavy 808 beats like Felix Da Housecat's "Kickdrum" rumble under a pair of titan hip hop vocals in "Turn Down For Hip Hop" thanks to Lil Jon and Fatman Scoop samples which spit over the top of Major Lazer synths. Get fused.

Review: An EP that really does live up to its name: Everything about Father Funk's first full EP for Scour genuinely is phenomenal. Bursting at the seams with a full flavoured rainbow of grooves, we're spoilt for choice: the Bootsy-level chaos of "Love Shack", the Cuban heel clicking fiesta fire "Gringo Lingo", the surprisingly salubrious disco licks of "Filthy" and, of course, the Van Helden salute that is the title track. "Phenomenal Funk" = phenomenally funky. More please daddio.

from $1.49
Review: Old Rummy returns to the Bomb Strikes stable with three more essential party jams. "Work Signs" takes Justin Timberlake back to the early '70s on a Parliament-charged funk train, the epic sample session "Funky Vibrations" flips us back to the early '90s with a focus on the De Le Soul's "Roller Skating Jam". Finally we get lively with a muscular big beat jam that features the distinctive vocal tones of DJ Kool Marva Whitney's evergreen horn hook from "Unwind Yourself". Show us a sign!

from $1.32
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.

Following some retrospective anniversary releases, we now get a selection of "Future Bombs" to enjoy. Highlights include Neon Steve's brutal dubstep/hard funk hybrid "Kill Em With The Vibes", the wobble-heavy synth epic "Rumble" by Herbgrinder and Mooque's own breaky electro-houser "Piano Thing".

Problem/The Edge by Icicle on Shogun Audio Cue Track
The Edge (feat Metropolis) - (4:29) 170 BPM
from $1.49
Review: One of drum & bass' most unconventional producers, Icicle has repeatedly re-written his own rules when it comes to forging his own sound and this time around he's chosen to ditch the dubstep for cut-throat political verses in "Problem" from Salford's own master of the vocal dark arts, Skittles. Twisting back into contorted bass and synths for "The Edge", a dirty, electrified stomp and step through the Icicle mainframe. It's good to be challenged every once in a while.

from $1.49
Review: Bringing new levels of heat to the nu-funk fire, Rise Above returns with three more surefire party ruckuses. WBBL kicks off with a pitch-perfect update of Bomb The Bass's "Bug Powder Dust" on "Buggin", Sammy Senior looks further back and taps into the deepest pool of classic jams with a savage bass-scorched "Sweet Funk", and finally X Ray Ted closes the show with a cool homage to Al Jarreau, complete with a cameo from Mr Biggie Smalls himself. New blood? Bloody great, more like.

Review: Origin One got it together to release album All For The Love back in May, but it looks as though things have slowed down since then. As a result, we just get the one new track, "Good Ganja", here - a laidback dub reggae jam with an authorities vocal from Cheshire Cat. There's four remixes to choose from, our favourites being DJ Maars' half-time hip-hop influenced head-nodder and Juice Foresight's surprisingly lively deep tropical house jam.

Review: Bristol-based beat minder Hiphoppapotamus jumps aboard the good ship Booty Fruit with his first full EP. The result is a five-track collection of total party hedonism. "Tropical Wiseguy" adds a slice of spicy bossa magic to the Wiseguys' classic, "Sunshine Riddim" is all about the sassy sun-kissed skanks and breezy organ blasts while "It's Carnivaaal" takes a Trojan standard and takes it to steel drum city. Elsewhere Desmond Dekker gets a rolling big beat makeover on "You Can Get It" while "Yeh Dig" closes the show with a splash of samba magic. Total party stimulation, expect plenty more vibe wallowing from Hiphoppapotamus very soon...

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: Morlack assembles yet another distinguished troupe for his latest label collection. All exclusives, all funky, all guaranteed to smash your party's trousers to pieces, highlights include the Parliament-level squidgy funk on DJ Clairvo's "I Like To Like It", DiscObeta's disco-flexing fix of Redman on "Get It On", Mako & Mr Bristow's super nerdy homage of criminally overlooked hip-hop classics "Re-Freshed Rhymes" and Itchy Bastards' guitar-slapping glitch space disco breaker "Let Yourself Go". Morlack has the honour of closing the show, and he does so with a euphoric twist on an A-Ha classic. Incredible stuff, it needs to be heard to be believed.

from $1.49
Review: Mash-up hero Tom Showtime has assembled quite a cast for his latest production Funk Pants, a reworking of one of his older tunes. His own rework sees samples of funny old stage banter introducing some big tough breaky funky hip-hop madness. Remix-wise, BadboE ups the jerky funk, D-Funk adds some electro bass and breaks, Roast Beats goes brass-centric but it's Showtime's regular partner, DJ Maars, who wins out with his hyped reggae 're-skank'.

Review: You might buy a release for the A-side, but the best stuff - the stuff you'll drop a helluva a lot longer - is always on the B-side. Naturally Ghetto Funk's B Side is dedicated to those longer lasting bangers, and here he is in full-flavour, four-track, happy-slapping form. Technique highlights include the supreme application of a very well-known horn sample on "Rock Ya Body", the chainsaw bass chugs and JB samples on "Get Involved", the tripped out high-end riff bubbles on "Bug On Out" and the p-funk attitude of the clinically obese bass on "The Dancer". Embrace this and you'll be B Side yourself! (Yeah, we went there...)

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.

Review: This label recently launched by DJ Spinforth (and pals) as a next step extension to his biweekly column for the Ghetto Funk blog called 'The Scour', to highlight and showcase the unsigned talent that he encounters while 'scouring' Soundcloud. 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: And now time for some Canadian country glitch. Bryx's beats are so rich yet so spacious there's heaps of groove and space for fellow countryman Corb's vocals and guitar strums. The result is a hoe down that hits so hard you'll either take up line dancing or be incompetent of walking in a straight line for the rest of the night. Either way; total party carnage delivered a truly unique way.

Review: More scrumptious sonics from the Polish party crew, the fourth volume of Tru Funk's "Tasty Beats" series sees old friends and new lay down five sizzling jams that will guarantee unified butt-shaking. New faces Bruno Borlone and Boogie Mike lay down a Spanish rap funk jam "I Like The Party", DJ Axe pays homage to Nice & Smooth and Curtis Blow, ElectroGorilla reach for the lazers with the euphoric breakbeat flexor "Funky Beast" and Rory Hoy and Saxon Scoundrels get busy on a classic rock and swashbuckling drum vibe with "Bouncin & Rockin". Finally The Beat Selecta boldly fixes up the classic Batman theme tune on a D&B with - quite cleverly - Hijack's "Badman Is Robbin" rap originally sampled by DJ Supreme. Holy bootlegs!

Review: Four firing party pieces here from nu-funk's Irish ambassador DT, where we find him tricking out some of modern history's most formative classics. "Shake Ya Booty" lives up to its title with salubrious grooves and a quick-switch dynamic to sharp mid-range bass, "Have A Party" takes a Jackson Five standard and processes it through an industrial strength low-end machine, "Funky Music" pays homage to Wild Cherry by way of seriously swashbuckling beats and an arrangement that twists and develops on every 16. Finally "Nod Ya Head" ignites with an instantly engaging skank riff and a bassline so squidgy and funky it could make Bootsy Collins titter like a schoolgirl.

from $1.49
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.

Bombstrikes Vol 20 by Mooqee & Pimpsoul on Bomb Strikes Cue Track
Do It - (4:02)
from $1.49
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.

from $1.32
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.

My Love - (3:19) 129 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The Hot Cakes bossman dons his darker alter ego for two booty-slapping breaks jams. "Bass Shaker" is all about the Public Enemy vocal samples, a very well-known Lafayette Afro Rock Band horn sample and a series of classic breakbeats. "My Love" flips the sexy switch by way of a Mary J Blige vocal, slinky garage elements and a buxom b-boy bassline that ensures the chaps are just as charmed as the ladies. Shake that bass!

Review: Morlack comes correct once again with a 27-track collection of total funk blasts. Naughty booties, reversions and mash-ups galore, the eclectic vibe ranges from skippy hair-swishing party rock ("Funky Woman") to cheeky Ting Tings reversions ("Hang It Up") via crazy blends of Zeppelin, Black Box and Outkast ("Ride On A Whole Lotta Love"). Elsewhere we hit gems like the big disco string B.M.W sucker punch "Get A Lil Stupid" and Bowie-busting block party slammer "Triple Fame". Morlack's repertoire was already bulging before this - now it's just ridiculous. Easily one of the best masters of the illicit art of mashery.

Review: Every now and then, in between artist EPs, Tru Funk knock out a mini compilation of bootlegs where the original artists get spliced together like Frankenstein's monsters of funk. Highlights of this five tracker include Tom Showtime's fusing of Khia's famously filthy My Neck, My Back with some of Snoops' Gangsta Luv on "Gangsta Lick", Phibe's totally eccentric party smasher "Dig My Bounce" (which mixes Missy Elliot with No Diggity) and Spox's electro funk monster "Roses" which beefs up Haywood's '80s classic of the same name.

Review: It's refreshing to see Disco Cakes add a little something different into the mix of their mash-ups: bass! So in a bold fusion of old and new we get the likes of Deekline & Hotline Zero's "Pump Up The Volume" which takes M/A/R/R/S' 80s hit and marries it to a fizzy Drop It Like It's Hot hip-hop jam. Slynk also has a stab at "Top Rankin" which takes Althea & Donna's perennial 70s party anthem and successfully welds it to some steely big beat sounds and finally Hotline Zero's remix of "All Gravy" gets all tropical bass on our case.

Review: Two rawhide ghetto romps from two of the GF crew's sharpest upstarts, Howla and WBBL. "Crazy Paving" lives up to its organised chaos name; a big bass groove swings back and forth while keys, horns and additional bass layers casually slide in and out of the mix with decorative drama. "Gunfunk" sees Howla going solo with a slinkier vocal cut. Sultry but loaded with gritty switches, it will have your crowd waggling their AK-47s with mischief in an instant.

Review: Bass music's finest schizophrenic returns to Passenger. To celebrate, the label has dusted off Riku Pentti's earlier label outings, remastered them and reminded us of his masterful, muscular skills. Five tracks of timeless low-end naughtiness, each cut resonates with all the best eras and chapters of electronic music; the speed garage flavours of "Smasher" and "Rule Dancehall" and the heady muddiness of the M25-jamming rave vibes of "Rinse Music" will ensure all parties are dented in a 10 mile radius of your next set. For added measure Passenger has also thrown in a killer classic hardcore version of "Rule Dancehall" from Manix. Lighter!

Review: Emerging from the Midlands in 2007 with the telling-it-like-it-is Serious Wobble by Stylus, Ground Level has rapidly risen to the top of the bass leagues. Now to celebrate its seventh year of success, main man Andy McAllister has provided this sizzling hot mix featuring 13 bangers. It's quite a trip and some of our fave pit stops on the way include the deep 'n' jazzy baile-ton of Zap! Pow! Die!'s "Bounce (Fuck This Mix)", the ethereal dubby 2step of "It Feels So Good" by John Bradley and the beefy-bassed, hypno laser jam "Hula Hoop" by DJ Hero.

Bombstrikes Vol 15 by Nick Thayer vs Will Styles on Bomb Strikes Cue Track
Party People - (3:21) Biggest-selling track on this release
Bombstrikes Vol 15 by Nick Thayer vs Will Styles on Bomb Strikes Cue Track
Shake Like Ya Mama - (3:35)
from $1.49
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.

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: The ever-rising star of 2010/11 and master of experimental beats brings us the follow up EP to his superlative Noir EP which landed on Critical around this time last year. In the title track "Aria", Rockwell blends glitchy, cinematic rhythms with sonorous, blissed out vocals and cooling instrumentals. Next, "Live For The Moment" adds a dash of funk, whilst talented duo Ulterior Motive's remix of the aforementioned "Noir" is nothing short of superlative, as they toughen it up with a super dark b-line smashing breaks and that iconic Virus-meets-Subtitles tenacity. A collab with Hemlock owner Untold backs this up in "Rehekou Sunrise", adding a shimmy of samples and soulful bliss as we reach the end of the EP.

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.

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.

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: Things that make you go phwoar! Sexy people, massive bowls of ice cream, low flying blimps and, most importantly, Actual Sounds compilations. Each one of them comes bulging with baggy-trousered booty joints; they ooze character and promise nothing but the purist party juice. Vibes abound across the 20 track set but highlights include a trance-tinged electro treatment of Sugar Hill ("Belgium Delight"), DJ Nixon's rude rendition of Delinquent Habits' "Return Of The Tres", Mr Bird's squelch-attack on Moby and Middle Diddle's strangely effective take on Green Day. Sounds terrible in type, but brilliant through the speakers.

Bombstrikes Vol 18 by Badboe on Bomb Strikes Cue Track
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.

from $1.49
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: 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.

Review: Spinforth's quest for freshness continues as he follows up the debut December Scour dispatch with another generous selection of chunky-jacksy bass joints. With gnarly fingers probing every party pie, across the collection we're treated to dubstep-meets-classic-Brooklyn ("Time To Rock"), 23rd century electro wobbles ("Boss DAT!") and VERY cheeky Cypress Hill booty business ("Insane Brains"... obviously!) And that's only three examples. Get Scouring.
