Conte Crux - "Turn It Up" - (5:55) 129 BPM
   
DJ Rudd - "Like Jello" - (4:16) Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Denmark's Breakbeat Paradise, as the name suggests, is Scandinavia's holy ground for anything breakbeat-oriented. Starting as an early music website back in 1996 it has since then developed into a full-blown label and an impressive one at that This time we have five different names and five different tracks, ranging from Conte Crux's electro-charged "Turn It Up" to "Like Jello" by DJ Rudd - featuring masterful sampling and chopping throughout. Morlack's "Makossa" re-spins some old-school NY rap, whilst "Bring Back The Funk" itself is a driving, break-ridden floor monster. DJ Throwback's "The Hook" tops it all off with some loose, hip-winding beats and breaks a la Africana.

Shake It Out - (4:10) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Toxic bootleg action! Spill one splash of these fruity mashes on the dancefloor and your groovers will bump and grind like mutated fools. The title track takes Royksopp's "Eple", adds a smidgeon of Marvin and a dash of electro while "Shake It Out" fuses Cassius with a killer lick from The Supremes. Elsewhere we find Edie Brickel, Eminem, Fugees and The Wiseguys get wobbly over a glitch-step hook ("Say Ooh") and Sly & The Family Stone get a classic hip-hop schooling. You heard the man...get it on!

BadboE - "Thriller In Manila" - (5:05) 113 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Bezwun - "Satisfy" - (4:11) 55 BPM
Review: Tru Funk are bona fide bringers of beats to soundtrack any good house party and this Essential Selection of Nu Party Break brings together a complete playlist for Saturday night. A whole load of scratching, sampling and cutting comes from DJs AKA, Axe, Kid Stretch and Rudd and Skandi, while it ain't only new school with more traditional funk jams coming from BMD's "Bad Man". There's also some Daft Punk-meets-DJ Shadow-meets-Stevie Wonder action on Funkanomics "One More Headache", while Funky Boogie Brothers bring back the big beat fun with "Street Jam" - and that's not even the half of it!

BadboE - "Ghetto Funkalicious" (feat MC Kitch - WBBL 2016 remix) - (3:28) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Timothy Wisdom - "Bad Mother" - (4:26) 110 BPM
Review: Although the cover of this latest instalment in the Paradise Breaks series echoes the famously trippy sleeves of '70s prog rockers like Yes, the music couldn't be more modern. Actually that said, many of the productions on here do plunder the '70s for inspiration but they choose funk over wizard's capes and that. Highlights include the mighty "Bad Mother" which combines raw soul divas vocals, wah-wah guitars and thumping break beats, J-Sounds' tight and groovy break-funk jam "On And On" and the super catchy shuffle-pop gem "Nobody Else" by Arteo. A totally mixed bag and all the better for it.

Kool Hertz - "Whatta Joint" - (3:47)
Review: It's been well over a year since Breakbeat Paradise last compiled a 'best of' collection. Since then they've delivered countless party bombs from some of the very best in game. In case you missed any, this is the perfect time to get up to speed. Highlights include Kool Hertz En Vogue homage "Whatta Joint", Morlack's p-funk party attack "Funkafize Me" and Prosper's slinky, sultry bass stalker "Slutty Snoop". Label compilations don't get much more satisfying that this - if you missed any Breakbeat Paradise releases recently then get up to speed right now!

Kool Hertz - "Whatta Joint" (Badboe remix) - (4:05) Biggest-selling track on this release
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.

Chudy - "See You Soon" - (3:45)
   
DJ Axe - "Ready To Roll" - (5:20)
Review: What in fresh hell is going on at Tru Funk Towers? Barely six weeks have passed since they gave us the 10-track strong Volume 1 and already we're looking down the barrel of eight more serious funk nuggets! Featuring some of the label's favourite faces we see the likes of mainstay Chudy rub shoulders with DJ Kid Stretch with party-starting glee. The former causes spine-tingle meltdown with his Aeroplane level of synth lushness on "See You Soon" while the latter gets jiggy with a classic Deborah Cox vocal and some full strength bass riffage. That's just two of eight; do you need any more convincing?

Wood N Soo - "Attack Jam" - (4:31) Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: From funky breaks label Tremendo, this second compilation assembles a crack squad of producers to get loose over these hot new tracks. Alongside new jams from the likes of Telephunken, Rory Hoy and Morlack, Bobby C Sound TV channels the best of Washington's go-go scene on "Ghostin' The Machine", Badboe mixes old school hip-hop with new school funk on "Unhooked Jam" and Breakbeat Junkie goes off on an '80s soul tip on the brass riding "A Journey Into Funk".
