Come Correct - (4:45) 58 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Who Da Phunk? (instrumental) - (4:41) 55 BPM
Review: Marz and Paul's Discobeta project returns after almost a year's silence with another firing collection of premium party jams. We ignite with straight-up party hit "Who Da Phunk?" before diving deep into "Good Foot", a barbed electro/funk hybrid where the hook screams mid-'00s while the bass and guitar scream mid-'70s. "Come Correct" is a heady rewind to the acid house halcyon era with more samples than a generous delicatessen. Speaking of generous, Funk Blasters have also thrown in an instrumental of "Who Da Punk?" for good measure. Bouncy.

NasT Anthem - (5:44) Biggest-selling track on this release
Worthwhile - (5:43) 150 BPM
Yo Hit It - (4:14) 146 BPM
Review: Scotty Marz and Erin Paul's Discobeta project hits party pay-dirt with this spotless four-track sample session. There's a slick rock vibe running through "Up & Coming" as we experience swashbuckling organic breakbeats and even bolder guitar riffs before we head deep into a groaning bass session on "NasT Anthem". Further on "Worthwhile" flips the flavour with a glitchy-disco lick complete with a mild peppering from Jay-Z while "Yo Hit It" gets busy on the classic funk tip, all horns, salubrious slap bass and sopping wet wah-wah guitars, it's the perfect way to end an accomplished EP.

Make Money - (4:31)
Lemme Talk - (4:13)
Roundacorna - (4:48) Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Serious party vibes abound as El Salvadorian Itchy Bastards add three new funk nuggets to their armoury. "Make Money" takes Busta to trumpet school, "Lemme Talk" looks to Clinton for some world dominance (George, not Bill) and "Roundacorna" is a deeper, jacking affair with a lolloping slap-bass riff and some lovely organ and wukka-wukka guitar twangs on the main hook.

Another State Of Mind - (4:25)
Lovers Rock - (4:38) Biggest-selling track on this release
Ground Control - (4:18)
Review: Premium beat dealers Itchy Bastards lay the smack down once again with three instantly engaging party blasters. "Another State Of Mind" rolls heavily with a cheeky Van Halen reference and an overall anthemic vibe. "Lovers Rock", meanwhile, takes a very well-known Kathy Brown vocal and subverts her with dark panache. Finally "Ground Control" shows a heavier side to the Itchy fellows as we flip from half tempo to slick, spacey drum & bass. Complete with big synth flavours and a great sense of drama, it's the perfect way to conclude a highly accomplished EP.

Hang On - (4:43) 123 BPM
Keep That Funk Alive - (4:11) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Nu-funk breaks label Funk Blasters drop four new gems from the Itchy Bastards on this new EP - led by the chunky P-funk of "Funk Iz Us" and backed nicely by the old-school rap of "Movin' Machine" and the more disco-paced, brass-flecked "Hang On".

Review: It's 80s time! Eat your Filofaxes. Buy low. Sell high. Have rubbish hair! Or... Just get your funky selves down on this retro-funky four piece. Spanish soundclowns Itchy Bastards give EU's "Doing Da Butt" a raw rub, ensuring not to take any of its authentic timely class. Morlack, meanwhile, takes what sounds like a Paula Abdul snippet and blends it with every shade of block party on "Give It Here" and gets cosmic with on well known vocal from "Let No Man Put Asunder" on "Monie 2009". Finally Itchy Bastards finish the show with some lovely glockenspiel action. Naturally.

Sugarhill Bongos - (4:50) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Hype Fresh Mine - (3:48) 60 BPM
Refried Beans - (3:52) 55 BPM
Electric Ruffneck - (3:36) 125 BPM
Review: Famed for their Stank Soul Edits vinyl series, Mako & Mr Bristo return on Funk Blasters with the mightily titled, Electric Bongo Disco. The name captures the vibes on here pretty well - four vintage cuts loved for their breaks gently souped up for modern dance floors. Opener is "Sugar Hill Bongos", which lovingly updates a Sugarhill Gang classic. Elsewhere "Hype Fresh Mine" is poppy disco meets hip house, "Refried Beans" is a sweet vintage B-boy gem and "Electric Ruffneck" really goes there, sampling Edie Grant and somehow making it actually sound cool! Now that's talent.

Morlack - "Heaven's Posse" - (4:20)

Review: Here we have a shared EP showdown between 'seasoned ghetto-funk priest', Morlack, and the self-proclaimed 'deadly mash-up monks' Mako & The Hawk. Mash-ups are indeed the dish of the day, with the former delivering some cleverly tweaked 80s boogie "Big Flow" and slick vintage funk "Heaven's Posse". The latter act are on a different tip though, with Radio Clash given a hip-hop makeover in "Doug Clash" and a lazy rap meets reggae uptown in "Lighters On The Corner".
