Review: A bold and brilliant release here from B Side which brings in the talents of MC Kyla for a seriously sick couple of tracks on the Ghetto Funk imprint. First up is the eponymous track of the EP "Throwing It Wild" which blends a dubstep sensibility with live, urban lyrics adding a jovial patter and grouchy mid range bellows. The B Side D&B remix is a nice addition to the package; adding some 175bpm badness to the original and increasing the pace, whilst the Tonic remix is pure funked up sickness aimed squarely at the dancefloor.

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: As the genre shimmies further and further away from its bootleg-heavy roots, nu funk's armoury is beginning to bulge with new original material each month. Profit's ear-blasting roof-raiser "Push Back" being a fine example. Featuring David Boomah and MC Shortston for added lyrical clout, Profit spits with drama and clarity, giving the likes of Rodney P a run for his money. With a swaggering rhythm and heavy bottom end, there's very little fault to find in this... If any at all. And for even more faultless funk, just check any one of Nick Thayer's three remixes. All variations on an extremely unruly p-funk theme, Thayer's given the original the respect is deserves. Get pushin'...

Review: A very special release from nu-funk barons Ghetto Funk: DJP and Breakbeat Junkie have formed to create Second Hand Audio. And to celebrate? They've recruited one of the coolest, distinctive MCs Long Beach has ever given us... Ugly Duckling's Dizzy Dustin! The end result is an authentic slice of original nu funk that pays heavy homage to the scene's biggest influence: funky, laidback hip-hop. Each version is sure-fire party-rocker; warm-ups will enjoy DJP's sludgy, slo-mo riddim while peaktimers will go cuckoo for Featurecast's take. Yup, cuckoo.

Review: Proof, if needed, that nu funk is really finding its feet this year with heaps of original material (we love the bootlegs but a scene really can't survive on mash-ups alone!), this is a gosh-darn fine party piece with hip-hop sensibilities that reach out to both sides of the Atlantic. The big beefy beats, solid bottom end and a cool electro riff act as a perfect bed for Lex One's sure-fire lyric spitting as we bump and boogie our way with glee. Throw in a dub and an instrumental and you've got yourself some real DJ fun - chop up the three and tease the crowd with that vocal. You really can't fail.
