Review: Tru Funk have taken the nu-funk ball and run so far with it they're in a stadium four towns over. This debut full lengther from fellow Polish party starter BMD is a fine example; a collection of his previous buzz-rubs and a few newies thrown in for good measure, it's all about the booties and beef-ups. All presented in a bulbous mid-tempo breaks style, highlights include a respectfully muscular reboot of Jamie Lidell's "Feels Good", a heads-down 80s synth funk shuffle ("Off The Catwalk") and a salacious twist on Scissor Sisters with Bootsy-level slap bass freakiness ("Yo Mama").

Review: An eight track funk attack from Poland via Spain, this is a picture perfect example of nu-funk's international reach. Calagad's control of squidgy bass shines through at every opportunity as we shake, rattle and roll the day away to his slippery disco grooves, but it's Cez 14 who really takes the spotlight with four solo tracks and collabo with Green Jesus. We haven't got space to list all of his accomplishments, but highlights include the UK rap and hooky sing-along style chorus on "The Beginning" and his insanely cheeky bootleg of the Blues Brothers fave "Rawhide" with Green Jesus. His uptempo dub skank antics on "Fallen In Love" is a very charming party piece, too. Introductions over!

Review: Monster debut album alert! Having demonstrated his skills both as a solo artist and in heavyweight co-lab duties with Warson for several years, Polish party jammer Chudy unleashes his first long player. A tight combo of tried and tested bangers and brand new material, Let's Groove On! shows Chudy at his most extensive and flavourful. From the evangelistic "Looking For Somebody" to the softer '80s soul of "In The Club" via block-rocking hip-hop homages such as "Hot Guitar" and filtered funk slammers like "Everybody", no party stone is left unturned, no corner of the dancefloor is left unattended. A highly accomplished long player.

Review: The Polish party vibes keep flowing at Tru Funk as Chudy returns to the stall with another fine mess of well-laced booties and nu-funk nuggets. "Happy Joint" is the perfect opener, fusing Art Of Fighters with a Michelle Wallace classic. "Looking For Somebody", meanwhile, is the perfect heater; jumping and jiving with a more cut-up sound, it takes an L.T.D joint to a whole new groove dimension. "Where's The Party At" rides with more of a playful, sexy swing while "Keep The Beat" ends on more of a b-boy flavour with added pianos. And that's before we even get to the wide range of remixes! Another must-have from Tru Funk.

Review: There's been a gaping hole in the world of cheeky mash up scamps since Australian melodic breaks hero DJ Axe entered radio silence a couple of years ago. Now he has chosen to re-establish his party boogie transmissions through the medium of an LP called City Funk. There are 14 new works to ingest; enough to provide sustenance to a millions house parties for years to come. Highlights include the sunny go-go influenced title track, the blissful cascading synth funk of "Bells" and the totally cool vintage breakdance joy of "Push 'Em Up".

Review: Two of the nu-funk scene's leading lights go toe-to-toe on this sizzling six-tracker from Tru Funk's Polish party HQ. Axe goes deep on a less-is-more ethos; "Funky Jam" builds with confidence, holding the full House Of Pain rap back to the very last moment. "Bush Tucker" is deeper again with a warped wonk to the groove while "Totally Fried" ends Axe's trio with some very cool use of a talkbox and a well known numerical chant from J Kwon. Morlack, meanwhile, develops his electro boogie rep; "Happy Hip Hop" bubbles with a rich synth bassline, "Summer Lover" radiates sunshine vibes via the medium of slap bass and cheeky Vanilla Ice vocal stabs while "Suspicious" wouldn't have gone amiss on a Paula Abdul record. Unashamedly 80s. Unashamedly funky, too...

Review: A very classy set of instant party starters from the Tru Funk stable, with BMD getting wild with the Isley Brothers' classic "It's Your Thing". Warson & Chudy deliver some serious hip-hop wobble on "Find The Funk" and drop the Slim Shady beat over "Ghetto Bounce". The real gem, however, is Jayl Funk's "Funky Song" - riding a classic call/response soul sample over a rock solid nu-funk beat.

Review: "A DJ Is Not A Jukebox": Sentiments every DJ can relate to, as expressed in the title of Warson's debut LP for Tru Funk. Mixing boogie-disco vibes with breakbeat production, Warson drops 17 gems including the old-school, '80s NYC vibes of the title tune, the Labelle-assisted "Ghetto Sisters", the dancehall power of "Go Girl" and the power-ballad refix "Banger Joint". Altogether, this is a hugely fun and frantic party-starter of a debut.

Review: Ah, this is what we like to see: an album dedicated to Kiefer Sutherland's nail-biting anti-terrorist series 24. Can't quite see how raw-assed party bombs, funk bullets and cheeky bootlegs relate to the ongoing mission of keeping the western world safe? It's simple. Take some time to study the dirrty south chants and upbeat Rhodes flavours of "Boogie On Tape", the razor-sharp riddim of the previously-released D&B-driven Tupac dedication "Snake Faces", or indeed the high-flying disco delight of Jenny Burton booty "Number One".... If these don't reflect the same killer instinct and ruthless efficiency as Jack Bauer, nothing will.

Review: Having previous dabbled in Tupac bootlegs and issued a hefty LP in celebration of his 24th birthday, Polish music producer and DJ Warson returns focusing his populist approach to the breaks genre on the original space opera Star Wars. There's 11 tracks here all marrying familiar, if heavily tweaked, vocal samples with celebratory hip-hop and house production. Guaranteed to keep you partying well into 2104!

Review: Ghetto sounds abound as Warson & Chudy continue their sterling work. Instant funk spray without the nasty CFCs, the six-track heavy Funkosoul EP is a total party aerosol, compressing a myriad of classic samples into their solo and collaborative pieces. Chudy's work takes a slower, hip-hop style pace, making it perfect for warm ups or wind downs. And trust us, there is no booty on the planet that couldn't resist a wiggle to "Movin' To The Funky Beat"! Warson meanwhile flexes on a more uptempo vibe with both "For My People" and "One Love" taking your dancefloor directly to the freak-o-clock. As for their collaborative work... you can find that one out yourselves!
