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: Four pristine, dub-flexed booty-busters from Southsea's sassiest soundbwoy Maars: highlights include a genuinely unique blend of Chali Tuna and Crooklyn over "Take Five", a wicked switch up with Outkast and Errol Dunkley on "Dub Jump", a skank-maxed rub of The Alkaholics on "Feelin Irie" and a super-tight mix of The Beatnuts and Barrington Levy on "Barrington Got Props". It might not be the summer anymore, but with this selection playing the sun will always be shining. Warm as toast.

from $2.16
Review: Whatever you think of the artistic merits of bootleg mash-ups, they remain an integral part of DJ culture. What's more, these cheeky mash-ups often do more damage on dancefloors than the original material. This EP from the Booty Fruit camp - the third installment in the popular Proper Produce series - features four more bespoke bootleg jams destined to cause maximum dancefloor pleasure. There's a studied tastefulness to the lazy hip-hop reggae of DJ Maars' "Come Dancing", while the boom bap hip-hop funk of Prince Pimms and General Tack's "Bad Influence" is so expertly crafted it sounds like an original production. There's a tasty, sophisticated skank to Livingston and Canosis' "Hold It Down", while the fat beats of Cris Crucial's "Like Dis" casually steer clear of silliness.

Review: Booty Fruit's DJ Maars joins forces with newcomer Tom Showtime for some seriously delicious sound mash-ups for this EP. "Heatwave Episode" is a funked-out re-edit of Dr.Dre's and Snoop Dogg's infamous "The Next Episode", whilst "Hungry Busta" puts a real dancehall vibe over Busta Rhyme's inimitable vocal machine-gun bursts. "Rocksteady Up" re-fixes yet another early 2000's hip hop gem "Ante-Up", and "Champion Steez" goes all breakbeat/ska mode, introducing some rather rapacious Jamaican lyrics over that booty-shaking groove.

Review: It's a Southsea/Melbourne showdown as Maars and Showtime collide for a series of sparkling slices of dub-informed booty business. "Rakim Riddim" takes Rakim's "Heat It Up" and lays it down softly over a Levy-style digi dub groove. Elsewhere we find "Still D.R.E" laid down over a buoyant skank while Biggie's "Big Poppa" gets the Trojan treatment. Impeccable funk fusion on an international level.

Mr Fresh - "SOUL" - (3:42) 146 BPM
from $2.16
Review: A nu-funk remix of The Mommas & The Poppas' "California Dreaming". Just writing those words seems preposterous. But trust us, Tim McVicar's take on the 60s hippy classic really works! Squidgy bass and chop-slapping beats a-go-go, by the end of the summer it will be illegal not to play this in BBQ and beach sets. Law will also be upheld on anyone not exploiting the utterly funky charms of the other three cuts. DJ Tiznas & Mr BiGK's take on Kenny Dope and Screechy Dan's "Boomin In Ya Jeep" is like Fatboy Slim circa 98, Dedy Dread & Mr Bird take Missy Elliot into Hammond organ heaven while Mr Fresh's "SOUL" is a trip head nod so heavy it falls over into massive sticky pile of jazz.

Review: However many new directions dance music goes in, there will always be a place for simple-but-effective bootleg mash-ups of familiar grooves and hip-hop acapellas. To be fair to the Booty Fruit camp, they do it better than most, offering reworks that balance dancefloor playability with a tasteful approach to production. There's a distinct hip-hop feel throughout, with Roast Beatz's harmonica-laden Beasties booty "Hick Stick" and Livingstone & Conosis' bumpin' "Tuna Salad" - a Charli 2na rework - standing out. Check also the head-nodding disco-skank of El Bomba and Hidden Riddim's "Miss Discoflex".

Review: The second in Booty Fruit's "Proper Produce" series sees four new funk-propelled mash ups hitting the virtual shelves this week. Among the highlights, Beastie Boys fans will certainly appreciate El Bomba & Hidden Riddim's "Dr Fluteski", which uses the same sample source as the NYC legends' "Flute Loop", while The Allergies give Blueboy's "Remember Me" an '80s soul rerub.

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: It's more than ten years since the phenomenon of the bootleg mash-up became 'a thing' thanks to the likes of Richard X and yet people still come up with fresh interpretations of the genre. People like Booty Fruits, who have now reached number five in their ongoing series of booty compilations. We get four sizzling tracks here including the cut and scratch ragga-hop of "The Dopest", and 'Minnie', which sees Lone Drum following in Jean Jacques Smoothie's famous footsteps by utilizing Minnie Ripperton's "Inside My Love".

Review: An offshoot of UK label Riddim Fruit, Booty Fruit is an imprint dedicated to mash-ups, bootlegs and edits that drops Homemade Bullets as its first release this week. Mr. Mention melts the Stereo MCs' "Connected" with the accapella from "Classic", a prestigious posse cut from a couple of years ago featuring Nas, Kanye, Rakim and KRS-1, while Dedy Dread cooks up a fun mix of chirpy reggae and Wyclef Jean. Funk Ferret chooses to add some big beats to UB40's perennial classic "Red Red Wine", and to round things off, One Funky Soul gives Jeru Tha Damaja a Northern Soul twist on "So Called Bro's".

Review: From the home of breaks-laced mash-ups, Booty Fruit drop four new tasty treats for DJs and fans alike. Tonic invoke classic '70s funk band War with their brassy "Smack", while Cut La Vis gets superstitious on the slow and punchy "Superwishin". Elsewhere, Jim Morrison gets chopped and screwed with on Funkanizer's "Peace Frog" while El Bomba's "Mad Style" recalls the best of '90s hip-hop thanks to some tight drum samples and an effortlessly funky bass line.

Review: Cypress Hill getting mashed up and personal with Led Zeppelin, Biggy getting busy over The 45 Kings, an electro-skank remix of Sister Nancy... these are just three of the super-cheeky bootleg treats on offer right here. Booties can go one way or the other; poorly pitched cut n' shut or clever, witty and complementary. These definitely fall in the latter. From furry flute bliss ("Dr Fluteski") to Busta Rhymes on a major skank-up ("Kingston Bounce"), this ticks all the right party boxes.
