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: Freshly Squeezed is known for its many electro-swing releases, but it recently unveiled its new big thing - electro blues. To further pursue the concept, the first compilation arrived along with a new club night in tow - aiming to create a 21st century juke joint experience where vintage rhythm & blues, gospel and old time sounds get a contemporary once over. The albums do the same and here we get 24 more sizzling cuts of this new sound.

Disco Cakes Vol 14 by Hotline Zero on Disco Cakes Cue Track
Unbelievable - (3:36) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Disco Cakes Vol 14 by Hotline Zero on Disco Cakes Cue Track
Spaceman - (3:44) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Embracing the current flavour for all things '90s, Disco Cakes bake up two iconic tracks from the decade, cooking them with all the modern production techniques required to shake booties in the modern age. First up, a bubbling take on EMF's 1990 top 10 smasher "Unbelievable". Instant sing-along with added swing, it will appeal to those who can remember it, and those lucky to be young enough not to. "Spaceman" thrusts us to 1996 with Babylon Zoo's pitched vocal classic. Lolloping along with a quirky off-beat garage bass, it will indeed shoot your floor into cosmoses unknown.

Morlack - "Feelin' It Right" - (6:24) 80 BPM
from $1.49
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: 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.

from $1.49
Review: Here the award winning breaks label Ghetto Funk presents its latest coup: the joint work of spectacularly named producers DJ Maars and Tom Showtime. It's all about the party jams here, with "Lion On My Side" kicking things off on an almost go-go tip with extra hands in the air vibes courtesy of some mean ragga MCing. Elsewhere 'Happy Deals" mixes vintage ska with some heavy sub bass, "Funk Haffi Make" is loopy ragga funk and "Shake N Break" wraps things up as a sunshine reggae/hip-house hybrid.

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.

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: 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: 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: 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: Italian funk fiddler The Captain knows his way around a dusty old seven inch, and more importantly, how to one make into contemporary dancefloor dynamite. 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".

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.

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.

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: Brazilian badness fresh to Punks, Bombo Rosa make their debut on the ever-reliable Stanton Warriors' brand with two cuts that sparkle with unique character and stay true to the low-rolling, groove-infested Warrior sound. "Birds" takes alluring whispers of the Nina Simone classic and applies them to a bright breezy rolling swing groove. Meanwhile "Salto Batida" gets deep down and dramatic with heavy percussive textures and two dynamic switches that - if dropped at the right time - will wind your crowd up something rotten. A consummate debut; we're looking forward to hearing plenty more from these guys.

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: 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!

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: 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.

Review: Sub-Line soldier Adam Ellis dons his Hipsta beard and shakes his whiskers in a Beastie fashion. Dicing and splicing the NYC trio's classic "Hey Ladies" to perfection over some obese breaks, he's created a seriously sweet funk groove with a slinky synth bassline and plenty of horns to boot. Step up!

Review: A veteran of labels like Timewarp, Carnibal and Booty Fruit, quirky producer Vida G now settles in with Mustbeat for remix EP Moonshiners. The original version sees KRSA laid a feisty rap over a catchy electro-swing/breakbeat mash up. On remix duties, J-Sound, adds some serious dubstep muscle, whilst Hanzee injects a little bit of electro-funk into the tune.

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.

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: 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: 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.

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.

Review: After a series of house flavoured releases, Rory Hoy flips the vibe back to the beats and bass he first made his name with. "Ass Shakers Song" lives up to its name in every possible way; bold bass grit, hype rap chants and a dramatic breakdown, if your floor aren't shaking their jacksies when you drop this you haven't played it properly. Dig deeper to find the straight-up acid attack "Get This Thing Started" and two premium remixes: a nu-funk glitch-ridden rub from Phibes and a disco funk flavoured remix of "Party On This Side" by Skeewiff. Funktopia indeed!

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.

There's also some Daft Punk-meets-DJ Shadow-meets-Stevie Wonder action on Funkanomics "One More Headache", while Funky Boogie Brothers bring back the big beat fun with "Street Jam" - and that's not even the half of it!

Bombstrikes Vol 5 by BEATVANDALS vs A SKILLZ on Bomb Strikes Cue Track
Slapdance - (2:44) 152 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Two masters of bootleg-style, hip-hop/funk mash ups team up for this latest instalment in Bombstrikes' series of party rocking tuneage. A Skillz and Beatvandals play a blinder on "Sunshine" - speeding up Roy Ayres' bonafide classic "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" with a tight beat layered underneath and chopped up respectfully. "Slapdance" however sees the pair take the beat from NERD's debut single "Lapdance" and cover it in well-crafted acapella cuts to make it a heavy-hitting floor filler.

from $1.49
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.

Bangers On The Breaks Vol 7 by DJ Twister aka Vinyl Cat on BOTB Poland Cue Track
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.

Good Ganja (feat Stephen Cheshire - Juice Foresight remix) - (5:52) 64 BPM
from $1.49
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.

Nod Ya Head - (4:05) 105 BPM
from $1.49
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.

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: 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!

Funk Pants (The 2014 Re-Thread) (Roast Beatz mix) - (2:59) 108 BPM
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'.

WBBL - "Around U" - (4:39) Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.55
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.

from $1.49
Review: Typically party-storming stuff from Mooqee and his Bomb Strikes label, with this episode of his Bombstrikes series hitting home nicely with "Funk Machine Man" blending DJ Shadow's "Organ Donor", Nas's "Made You Look" and some smart juggling of James Brown's intros all balanced together just right. With a dub and a clean edit also available, as well as "Are You Gonna" - a blend of Lenny Kravitz, Kelly Charles and The Prodigy - this is party fodder of the highest calibre.

All Gravy by Deekline & Ed Solo on Disco Cakes Cue Track
Deekline & Ed Solo - "All Gravy" (Hotline Zero remix) - (3:38) 110 BPM
from $1.49
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.

from $1.29
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: 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.
