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: Break Beat Paradise Recordings tend to celebratory the more celebratory side of breakbeat music. Here though, the gloves are off on this hard-hitting compilation, Big Fat Mama Beats. There are seven fresh jams to enjoy including the housed-up, ska-infused bouncer "Chinese Robots (Re-Up)" by DiscObeta, Mr Rich & The Caretaker's street tough electro breaks cover of "My Feelings For You" (originally a Gwen McRrae joint) and the urgent percussion and Middle Eastern samples of Crunch "(Scratch By DJ Craft)" by Funky Boogie Brothers. Dope!

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.

Played by: Brian Brainstorm
Review: Navigator recently dropped the dramatic hip-hop/grime hybrid Lyrical Warfare recently bringing much fire in the process. So successful was it that Liondub/ODT have decided to keep the party going with some seriously heavy remixes. First up Brian Brainstorm delivers some hyper DnB action with high bpms and even higher energy. Elsewhere Social Security fuse manic, scattershot beats with relentless ragga MCing (and a cool dub version too), but it's the precision of Submatic's speedy ghetto beats on his dub workout that win the day this time round. Dancefloors everywhere be warned!

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.

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.

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: Ever wondered why David Bellamy always sounded so 'out there'? Well perhaps the suspicious looking nature of his shrubbery on this single sleeve might explain it. Anyone expecting cool credibility with this new Monstafunk EP has probably been smoking some of that 'shrubbery' too, as this guy is all about retweaking big, shiny commercial hits. Here he tackles Red Hot Chilli Peppers on the tough funk workout "Aeropain", Snoop Dogg on the retro grooves of "Monstafun", En Vogue/Montell Jordan on the filtered frolics of "Never Gonna Get It" and finally Sister Sledge/Kanye on the breakbeat/disco jam "Thinking Of You".

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!

Review: Blustering bass boss Leda Stray brought some serious fire with his Punks debut Oracle/Vision, which was all over Radio 1, Kiss FM and Rinse FM. Now he's back with evidence of how blistering an experience he actually is. The Live EP captures him er, live in action with some killer hardcore breaks, chest-busting bass and serious crowd rousing MCing ("Is there anyone inside who doesn't come from fackin Bognor Regis?!" Elsewhere Cellardore streamlines the tune into some wobbly heavy garage, whilst Doctor Nick delivers some nice and deep 2 step goodness.

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: Following on from a successful appearance on the Punks Warehouse Selection album, Canadian producer Zander now looks to the future by hooking up with Dallas resident Left/Right (aka Chris Lund). The results are electric and have already received props from the likes of The Crystal Method, MJ Cole, Krafty Kuts, Sly-One and Nick Thayer. "Cant' Stop" is a prime slice of brooding and intense breaks with serious dark alley vibes, all brought to life by some impressive synth work. Let's hope they keep these collaborations coming!

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: Brighton's Krafty Kuts has indeed come back, and with all guns blazing too. This sizzling new four tracker is destined to set dancefloors alight up and down the country. There's a distinctly more urban/bass feel to these new beasts than the breaks we've come to expect from him, and it's no bad thing. The title track kicks things off with some killer old school rave vibes and lasers-over-the-crowd breakdowns. Elsewhere "Danger" is tough electro-funk, "Flow" is dark and nasty UKF and "Egypt" is a dubby, eccentric grime closer. Boom!

Review: Some DJs are arty farty and some are more meat 'n' potatoes. Phibes falls firmly in the latter camp - always delivering lowest common denominator party tunes. That's either a good thing or a bad thing depending on if you're the in the camp of the former or latter. There's not denying though that Phibes' recipe for cheeky big beats, funky samples and sprinklings of hip-house raps will set most dancefloors alight.

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: This crew is known for delivering release after release of seamless, if often cheeky, bootlegs and mash-ups, and this latest installment is no different. What does separate it from most of their previous releases though, is the size: this one clocks in with a whopping 16 tracks! As usual it's a funk-heavy selection, of which highlights include an organ-led, 60s style makeover for the Jacksons on "Dave Jackson", the P-Funkisms of "Party Sweep", the Yazoo-twisting of "Go Well" and the Snoop Dogg-goes-ska laid back grooves of "Cantaloop Dog".

Yes Yes (Hybrid Theory remix) - (5:03) 128 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Veteran DJ duo Plump DJs recently delivered their big room anthem "Yes Yes" to unanimous approval. Now we get to revisit the banger via a new remix by none other than the mighty Hybrid Theory. Although the essence of the original is retained, HT swaps most of the tribal/baile drum rhythms for more of a wobble-heavy 4 x 4 workout. Stripped back and fresh, this anthem's success is now going to last all summer!

Review: It's a great sign of the state of music when the tenth installment of Tru Funk's Tasty Beats series, which normally features about five tunes, boasts 21 fresh new cuts! It's a veritable feast of party mash-up bangers, with something for everyone. Highlights include the funky Khia/Snoop blend of "Gangsta Lick", the cut-up electro-funk of "Golden Ass" and the hands-in-the-air Stevie Wonder madness of "Party Like We Do".

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: Rumours that party producer Tom Booze records everything whilst completely hammered are yet to be confirmed. However one listen to his latest, the Get Fonky EP, and you'd be forgiven for believing them. This is no bad thing as both tracks here, "You Had It All" and "Get Fonky With It", both posses a certainly woozy, slo-mo charm. The former sees a delicious early 80s boogie jam grind along at 55 bpm, whilst the latter sees classic bloc rockin', anthem-mongering marry some lazy breaks for some classic p-funk party vibes.

Review: Aussie party label Adapted Records like to let the music do the talking, although the title of this here compilation, Glitch & Funk Vol 2, pretty much fills you in. Now what is inside is 11 tracks all crafted for the specific purpose of simply having fun. Mid paced opener "Smile" by Faux Fur, marries a steady breaky groove with hip flavours (plenty of scratching) and some vintage soul sounds and a smooth female vocal. Elsewhere we get electro swing with extra funk on "Bootleg Brass" by Stepcat and the blue-sky synthpop vibes of Bobby C Sound TV's "Europa".

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'.

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: 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".

Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

Review: Although label boss Mooqee is perfectly capable of striking us with party bombs, he occasionally recruits his pal Herbgrinder to help smash those dancefloors. "Sound Around Town" was one of those thrilling jams, and here we now see it revived through a string of new mixes. First up Funkanomics fuse the incessant organ riffs with tight skippy beats and arpeggiated basslines, Beatvandals UK take us on funky drummer trip to the late 80s and Mooqee himself steps up for a sizzling VIP mix that's full of tough beats, cut up samples and a subtle dubby undercurrent.

Review: Now on their seventh release, Scour are really coming into their own on the glitchfunk / bootleg game. Here we find Brighton-based turntablist Mr Stabalina laying down four furiously funky twists: "Rock The Party" rides one of the fattest organ lines we've heard in this field all year, "Freak The Funk" samples about 50 of your favourite records over a steady midrange Featurecast-flavoured bass lick while "We Can Do It Again" takes us deeper into bluesy territories with a big piano riff and some really nerdy/brilliant cut & paste narration. Finally "Don't Stop" concludes where we started: juicy fruit organs and a latent sense of funk that's so tangible you can taste it. Ridiculous.

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: 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.

And it's business as usual as we're thrown around by the limbs to a 28-track strong selection of wide-eared funk fusions that range from an uptempo breakbeat cut n' shut of Nina Simone ("Ooh Baby") to Brooklyn era block busters ("Down With The King") via classic rave-meets-early house mashery ("A Bigbeat Treat"). A bargain and banging - these booties are keepers.

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: Ireland may not be the first place that springs to mind when discussing reggae. Now, following the success of recent album Special Request, the Emerald Isle's Dirty Dubsters (DJ Obese and Jay Sharp) are back with the distinctly Jamaican vibes of pop-dancehall ditty, "Old Vet Again". Further on there are three more new tracks to enjoy - the dubby 2-step hybrid "Street Ruff", the speedy DnB of "Sky Larker" and the feelgood Maytails/Tone Loc mash-up "Monkey Madina". Fun!

Review: London producer Fold has built up a small but respectable discography of 12" releases, largely for local capital concerns Man Make Music and Electric Minds. He's also got something of a penchant for humorous titles, which is on full display for this debut Fold 12" on Will Saul's Aus Music label. Calling your record Netflix and Chill might put off the house purists with no time for internet memes, but you can't fault the standards of Fold's productions here. Lead cut "Calmer Mood" features some fine sampling over skipping drums and a hefty bassline, whilst the appropriately named "Wallop" could be mistaken for a Maurice Fulton track. On the B-side, the drum heavy jungle-house hybrid makes for a refreshing change of tone and is backed by a killer Kassem Mosse remix.

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.
