Review: The Danish may be all serious about design, but when it comes to partying the Breakbeat Paradise crew prove that they can be as frivolous as the rest of us. Here they've rustled up a bumper packed collection of cheeky if disposable mash-ups and edits of the kind that'll go down a storm in bars and house parties. There are six offerings some highlights of which include the squelchy retro funk breaks of "Walk In Place" by F-Block, the cut-up go-go boogie of "Free Wheelin Franklin" by Kibosh and the raw big beat swing hybrid "Hit Em Hard" by Blitzkrieger.
Review: Breakbeat Paradise Recordings are on a roll right now and they return with another action packed compilation. This is the fourth installment of the beloved Bring Back the Funk series. Bring Back The Funk Vol. 4 features brand new joints from BBP all-star producers, Lack Jemmon, B-Side, BadboE & Proper as well as introducing new artists to the label: Hebegebe and Brian Carson, Kibosh and Synoptix who all have some funky goodness up their sleeves. BBP is dedicated to bringing you the very finest in the funkier spectrum of the electronic breakbeat scene.
Review: A veteran of labels such as Adapted and Breakbeat Paradise, here this Aussie 'cosmic collector of robots and rainbows" has served up a sparkling four track EP for the guys and gals at Scour Records...and it's a winner! "Monkey Bars" trundles along evoking memories of vintage Go-Go, hip-hop and swing, "Back N Forth (feat Imagine This)" shows of his turntablists skills in fine style, "Dustin' Diamond" on the other hand, shows off his disco and funk influences and "Infamous" is a tough party breaks jam that will fill the floor at any self respecting house party.
Review: Bomb Strikes are back with another belter as Kibosh steps forward with this ferocious two tracker. We begin with the delicious grooves of the title track 'Spinning Wheel' which combines squelching bass instrumentation with classic soul sampling with fantastic results. Then we are blessed with the glitched out arrangement of 'Pep Squad' with folds funk.
Review: Next up from the incredibly consistent Bomb Strikes imprint, we have Kibosh joining the party for two tracks of neurotic twisted magnificence, kicking off the title track 'Loopback'. This one unleashes a vibrant, unpredictable bass lead with writhes and evolves alongside the track, alongside super punchy drum licks and vocal additions. On the flip side, we dive into the funkadelic flex of 'Fire'. This one is seriously groovy, with catchy wah wah riffs and smooth horn lines to match. Very saucy stuff indeed from the Bomb Strikes team.
