Review: A quad of funklets from the ever reliable Nynfus corp as we get deep down and dirty with these bass-ravaged ghetto grooves. "Break It Down" is a fantastic discofied breakbeat take on Ebony Eyez "In Ya Face". Elsewhere we find an off-the-wall rendition of Edith Piaf's "Je Ne Regrette Rien" that you will NEVER regret dropping at a party ("La Petit P"), some gypsy jazz style eastern carnage ("Istambool") and some proper thug life vibes featuring Blade ("Gangster's Rock"). All different flavours, all killers, Nynfus Corp can do no wrong.

Mamoreez - (5:12) 149 BPM
Your Lover - (5:32)
Move You Fresh - (4:58)
Say What - (5:08)
Review: Originally released last year, Big M re-up this generous four-piece from Hungarian funk fanatics Nynfus Corp. Thanks to a mild Latino sway and great use of a Blackalicious vocal sample, "Mamoreez" is such an instant party-starter you couldn't possibly make a boob of yourself (sorry). "Your Lover" takes us back to Florida's freestyle proto R&B days while "Move You Fresh" takes Ludacris directly to the disco with groovy results. "Say What" ends with a more traditional nu funk and a cool House Of Pain vocal.

This Weed (feat Timothy Wisdom & King Lion) - (4:48) 96 BPM
The Beat Goes - (4:04) 116 BPM
Nina Is Back - (4:27) 106 BPM
Jessie Bones Boot - (3:17) 106 BPM
Review: Budapest ghetto funk purveyors Nynfus Corporation serve up some deep down and dirty breaks on the So Long Dudes EP. Starting out with the smoker's delight "This Weed (feat Timothy Wisdom & King Lion)" which will get many a lighter in the air, for more than one reason! There's the fierce dark side roller "The Beat Goes" which is reminiscent of classic Meat Katie, the block rocking, party starting beats of "Nina Is Here" (featuring a massive rhyme delivery courtesy of the MCs) and finally "Jessie Bones Boot" which features 'that' Moby sample.
