Review: Jordane Poret's Djar project hooks up with King Most for another sweet 7-inch special edition that celebrates the 50th jubilee for the long beloved Resense-series! With horns blaring into a mix of calypso jazz and big band vibes, Djar outta France turns in a warm number for the exotic swing-tings out there while San Francisco's King Most throws down some dusty funk and instrumental cover inspirations that stems from an undeniable motown classic referencing all matter of blues, roots, funk and rock. Celebrate!
Review: As ever, the Bomb Strikes imprint delivers an awesome package to us with this brand new 25 track compilation entitled 'Funk N' Beats Vol. 5', To be honest, it's exactly what it says on the tin as The Allergies head up waves and waves of funkadelic rhythms and crunchy riffs. For us the highlights have to be the futuristic drum processing and subtle percussive movements of 'Loose Gardner' from Flevans, along with the classic breakbeat fusion of 'Fire' remixed by Smoove but originally produced by the Renegades Of Jazz. With the sheer depth of the project it's easy to get lost within the tracklisting, which is always a good sign on a large scale compilation.
