Review: Out on Deekline's Booty Breaks label, Australian electro/breaks star Athson cooks up four storming dancefloor heaters as part of this epic series of bouncing bootlegs and mash ups. "All The Girls" sounds like a follow up to Bmore anthem "Watch Out For The Big Girl" thanks to its looped vocals and delayed trumpets, while Ludacris gets a funky-tech rerub on "Go Low". Add the mean electro stabs of "Go To Work" and the old school rave shout out "Hardcore Heaven" and this makes for a very fine and banging set indeed.
Review: Well known breaks barons Defkline & Pure SX get lively once again with another instalment of cheeky bootleg action. First up is "212", a bold reversioning of the currently unavoidable Azealia Banks track. With high-riding synth hooks and a beefy rhythm construction, it's a surefire bullet this summer. "Link Up" sees Wiley go under the duo's carving knife for another failsafe chunky funkster. Rolling breaks with rounded bass, it's more respectful than some of the remixes that have been doing the rounds. Finally we hit "End Of Line", a fine-tuned Beyonce homage that comes complete with instant hands-up 80s synths, very well executed bass tones and an electro riff that develops throughout.
Review: Always boasting a well-stocked arsenal of mash ups and breakbeat remakes, the Booty Breaks label drop three new beats on this long-running series - this time supplied by crafty cutters Defkline and Red Polo. "Power Boots" revisits a '90s euro house classic, Drake's teary-eyed raps get a pleasing beat-driven overhaul on "Take Care" while excellent tropical electro banger "Go Outside" rounds off the set.
Review: DJ Defkline, Red Polo and Dustin Hulton team up for this killer three track EP on Booty Breaks. The highlight here has to be the L'Trimm sampling "Cars That Go Boom", which turns the late 80s Miami Bass ode to car speakers into a smashing breakbeat jam. Also check out "Flat Toes" which throws a killer vocal over Mr Oizo's timeless electro cut "Flat Beat".
Review: Great news everyone! Trading Standards will definitely not be calling on Booty Breaks any time soon - their releases never cease to live up to their rump-shaking name. Bad news everyone! Trading Standards may well give Fog a call... crystal clear sonics with perfect 20/20 funk focus: There's nothing foggy about this Dublin breaker in the slightest. Or stingy; he's generously given us three well sprung bouncers, all of which salute to the foundations made by the likes of Deekline and the Stanton Warriors. With well sliced samples and some incredibly well rounded bass tones throughout, each cut will cause major booty shaking action.
