Review: Taking Asaf Avidan's emotional exercise in modern day folk and giving it the regal reboot it deserves, Pure SX and Mutant Breakz ensure Hot Cakes' reputation as 'king of bass bootlegs' remains intact with this blistering breakbeat version of "One Day". One sawtooth bassline sizzles over a more elongated distorted low-end lick while the beats swagger and the guitars loop gently in the background. Building gradually, the vocal doesn't really take full presence until the breakdown, causing serious dancefloor meltdown in the process.

Review: There are various ways to apply pressure to your dancefloor. You could turn the venue into a vacuum, you could drop one of those comedy (but deadly) 100 tonne anvils on the floor OR you could drop this - a nu-funk swagger basher with cute shades of electro on the bass and a silver-tongue, almost Q-Tip style, rap from Imagine This; it's perfectly pressurised and comes danger-free! Remix-wise Funkanomics add a little P-funk to proceedings, the ever-cool Skeewif goes for more of a classic low-swung funk rub while WBBL hurl a whole barrel of squidgy bass at us. Apply this to your dancefloor today!

Review: Madrid outfit Telephunken come through correct once again on Tremendo Big Records - a rightful home to their jaw-shattering take on breakbeat. "California Love" completely tares up Dre's and Snoop Dogg's timeless lyrics and meshes them ever so gracefully with a sweet pair of soul vocals, but "Rollin' With Telephunken" really gets things moving and squeals out one of the gnarliest basslines you'll hear in a while - not to mention its sweet chorus. "24 Hours Of Madness" is the funkiest of the lot, discombobulating the chugging beat to the point of near hysteria and it serves as further proof of Telephunken's increasingly alluring beat-thrash style.

Review: Mooqee's label Bombstrikes is doing all right for itself. So much so in fact that they've reached that milestone - a label's first compilation album. Here Mooqee has selected 25 sizzling bangers new and old that do it for him, and hopefully will do it for you too. Highlights include the compressed electro steamroller that is "Back To School", the crunch synth funky freakout of "Come On Bounce" and the devastating bass that's eaten all the pies of "Let's Do It Right Now". Heavy!

Review: Flipping the bird from his high tower betwixt EDM, electro and breakbeat, Beatz Projekted's distinctive blend of spirited sonics has won him many fans over the last year or so with releases on labels such as Disco Bomb, Miami In Tech, Plasmapool and Redbox. His debut on Texan label Kick It is likely to score yet more; "Battleship" gurgles and glitches with vibrant funk flourishes and a vicious bass undertone that will sink any boat in a 20 mile radius. Remix-wise Kwerk adds a little more breakbeat swing to the melting pot while Tactical Groove Orbit throw down a whole new chapter in stomp. Heavy.

Review: Flip the switch and get with the program: evergreen party purveyors Breakbeat Paradise have commissioned a whole bunch of reversions and each one is an instant booty-buster. Highlights abound throughout this raucous bass-bizzled nu-funk adventure but only a twit wouldn't pack Badboe's rub of Kool Hertz En Vouge sampling sizzle-up "Whatta Joint", JiggyJoe's orchestral disco-strung halfstepper rub of Calagad 13's "Back To The Power" or Badboe's take on Rudd's Supremes-slicing "Shake It Out". Paradise found.
