Oh Be Thankful - (5:54)
from $1.96
Review: One man party rocker and mash-up king D Funk returns to Grits N Gravy with three new treats. "Nothing But Money" sees an '80s rock classic slowed down and layered with some tweaked bass and drums, "That Glitch Thing" updates a Lauren Hill classic with a cavalcade of synths and live drum fills and perhaps best of all, William DeVaughan's evergreen "Be Thankful For What You've Got" gets a subtle update on the excellent "Oh Be Thankful".

Hot Heating Up - (4:47) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: Quench your floor thirst with these juicy nu-funk nuggets from Aussie UK ex-pat D Funk. Operating around the cool mid-tempo range, it's all about the low-swung b-boy attitude. "Back In Love" takes LL Cool J's "Headsprung" and adds a sleazy bassline and an alphabet of cheeky trumpets. "Sicker Than You", meanwhile, takes Biggie and lays him down flat over a bed of bulbous bass and tight wah wah funk guitar licks. "You Don't Hear Me" pumps with more of an '80s boogie vibe while "Hot Heating Up" flips the switch with a Steve Miller "Abracadabra" rub with additional instantly recognisable vocal snippets - see how many you can identify!

D-Funk & Philly Blunt - "Time To Move" - (4:39)
BUY
D-Funk - "Big Kids" - (4:52)
from $1.96
Review: From breaks-heavy mash-up label Grits 'N' Gravy, this trio of new tunes from D-Funk and Philly Blunt are guaranteed to please. "All Good" sees the De La Soul acapella of the same name layered over a new, bassed-up electro beat, while "Time To Move" is a nu-funk beauty which welds together live drums, bass and brass with classy studio tricks. "Big Kids" goes back to the bass though, creating a new, squelchy breaks/dubstep beat for Big Daddy Kane's "Set It Off" acapella. Heavy, head-nodding stuff.

Review: Ex-pat boogie peddler Doug Masters (now based in Australia) has been doing his thing as D-Funk for well over a decade, releasing popular party tunes through his two labels (Upstart Music and Grits N Gravy), and here is his latest release. The Funk Jammer EP features three new tunes that, if not being straight up covers, all reference famous tunes. "Get Up & Jam" doffs its cap to classic p-funk and boasts a mighty hand waving anthemic spirit, "Bumper Jam" is classic party breaks fodder with nods to Grace Jones and "Dope Jam" looks to both daisy age hip-hop and Barry Gibb's Grease for inspiration.

Tom Drummond - "I'll Be Round" - (5:28) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: A host of breaks talents get together on this new release on Grits 'n' Gravy, with D-Funk and Some DJ merging a Jurassic 5 accapella, Primal Scream's "Loaded" and a pile of top drums and bass synths to create the party-stoking title tune. Tom Drummond and Philly Blunt work up more of a disco/nu-funk beat on "Drop The Chalupa" while Drummond drops his solo delight "I'll Be Round", throwing in samples from Sly and The Family Stone, George McCrae and Funkadelic amongst others over some thrillingly chopped up drums.

Never Knew - (5:40) 120 BPM
from $0.00
Review: Australian funk wizard D-Funk returns to Grits n Gravy with three new floor monsters and a luscious remix. This guy knows how to get the groove on and "Save Me" is one of those tunes that'll send your panties in a twist from the first bar. Title track, "Kick This Thing" is a certified boogie tool, whilst The Owl's remix goes into deeper mode and brings out the percussion further. "Never Knew" is just the cherry on top of the cake - beats, bass and funk.

Mr Doris & Donewrong - "Twaddle" - (5:58) 131 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Aussie nu funksters let rip with another tempo-flexing trio of party treats. Spanning the pastures of slo-mo glitch, cheeky D&B and classic breakbeats, there genuine is something for all stages of the night. D-Funk's "Gotta Get Loose" oozes sludgy bass and lazy acid analogue over a squelchy hip-hop break. "Hit The Yellow Brick Road" takes a Ray Charles cover and twists it inside out. Mr Doris and Donenowrong finish the set with a premium breakbeat wobbler that wouldn't have gone amiss in breakbeat / UKG's crossover days 10 years ago.

Philly Blunt - "Funky Music" (free track) - (3:20) 152 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $0.00
Review: Following on from their previous collaboration, "Time To Move", Aussie breaks mangler D-Funk and Grits N Gravy label boss Philly Blunt reunite for "Let It Ride", a low-slung '80s funk-meets-soulful rap hybrid that smashes in hard with a slinky electro bassline and a swirling set of disco strings. Two new solo D-Funk beats also see the light of day - the equally head-nodding thrills of "Turn That Upside Down" and the Clash-sampling "Don't Ever Stop" - while Philly Blunt's excellent blues 'n' breaks-fest "Funky Music" also gets a well-earned release.

Review: Cover versions don't get more scrumptious than those penned by Eat More Cake. Taking the Womack & Womack classic, they've given the track a sultry new lease of life with organic instrumentation and Emily May's purring vocals. Jayl Funk develops the organic nature of the original neatly with soft guitar plucks and a thick warm groove. Jump The Gun, meanwhile, flip the vibe entirely with a pumping old school house jam peppered with cool speed garage samples and far-away vocal effects. Finally D Funk gets all slinky and strutty with his silky glitch twist. A really cool release - the only teardrops will be of those who miss out on this.

from $1.96
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'.

Review: Australian funky breaks producer Slynk has acquired props from all over the world, from the likes of A Skillz, Mooqee and Fort Knox Five amongst others. Here, he plays it straight disco with a funky rock edge on this new release for Grits N Gravy. The lead song "Monkey Magic" evens sounds a little like 10cc at times, while "Chilling Out" has its own Yacht Rock-meets-the Gap Band thang going on. Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" also makes a brief appearance on the party-starting "Slide Slide".
