Coconut Affair (feat Isabel Drake) - (4:43) 120 BPM
Review: It was 4 years ago when Scour Records happened upon the phenomenon in waiting three-piece Captain Flatcap, playing to two men and a dog in some best-forgotten dive. Now its 2016 and it's different story indeed, the world is beginning to be seduced by the madcap fusion of styles that Chris, Tom and Matt uniquely provide. Now here is their eponymous album to take things to the next level. There are 10 tracks to enjoy; our favourites include the melodic dubstep-meets-ye-olde-flute music of "Awakening", the pulsating medieval trance of "Sergei's Journey" and the DnB mayhem of closer "Are You Me?".

Go Away - (3:54) 120 BPM
Review: Extra Medium is a producer equally known for his iconic moustache as much as his unique skill in turning 20s and 30s obscurities into bass heavy monsters. Ever one for generous notions of sizing, here he gives us five new sizzlers. From the raw-blues-meets-menacing-electro-thump of "Blues Boogie Bass", to the gentle acoustic breeze of "Lazy Bones" via the buzzsaw-Charleston of "Go Away". 4 times World DMC Champion Mr Switch and horn man Cab Canavaral both appear on the Jazz Age-stepper "Size Up" and the dubsteppy "Swinggae".

I Can't Stop - (3:45) 123 BPM
Review: Electro-swing. Done to death right? Wrong! Bristol's Extra Medium almost uniquely takes samples of similar 1920s and '30s jazz age ditties that everybody does but fuses them with a very British bass sound. Here we get served five sizzling jams to loose or s**t to. Highlights include the antique Mediterranean grooves of "Beatnik Boogie", brought up to date with some killer UK bass attitude, the thumping staccato wobble of "Stop The Moon" and the accelerated sing-along garagey break-step of "Troublesome".

Filthy - (4:33) 121 BPM
Review: An EP that really does live up to its name: Everything about Father Funk's first full EP for Scour genuinely is phenomenal. Bursting at the seams with a full flavoured rainbow of grooves, we're spoilt for choice: the Bootsy-level chaos of "Love Shack", the Cuban heel clicking fiesta fire "Gringo Lingo", the surprisingly salubrious disco licks of "Filthy" and, of course, the Van Helden salute that is the title track. "Phenomenal Funk" = phenomenally funky. More please daddio.

The Hump - (5:08) 120 BPM
Review: As expected, Mr Stabalina returns with his uniquely wonky breakbeat stylings for his brand new EP 'Do You Like It'. We begin with the futuristic grooves and vocal slices of 'Put Your Hands Up' before dropping into the smoothly arranged hip hop designs of the title track. Next up 'The Hump' with its electronic leads and nostalgic sampling taking lead roles before we land on the fidgety inspired stylings of 'Funkyass Bassline'. Finally we round off with the scratch heavy house creation 'Just Drop', complete with funky electro riffs and punchy drum work.

Stampede - (4:59) 122 BPM
Review: It's time to get into party mode as we see Spin Kringle make a highly anticipated appearance on Scour to showcase some of the smoothest breakbeat originals we have heard in quite some time. The project begins with 'Float', alongside Sam Klassik, an incredibly bouncy piece of turbofunk, filled with twisted melodic expression and grizzly synthesizer movement. The goofy chord structures of the title track 'Parade' follow, before more synth units are set to run wild over hard hitting drum punches in 'Turn Out'. Finally, the groove intensifies as 'Stampede' combines funky horn work with smooth 4x4 rhythms and a constantly evolving lead bassline. Awesome!

Schweet EPEXCLUSIVE
   
Listen - (3:26) 123 BPM
Review: Clich?s like 'melting pot' or 'smorgasbord' are chucked around way too freely in music reviews, but it's hard to describe the wide array of influences on display here any other way! 'Baller' is an Afro-jazz workout, albeit more 'Afro' than 'jazz', with something of a makossa-ish vibe about it. 'Schweet' itself, which follows, is a more straight-up homage to 70s funk and soul, but we're back in jazz (or more accurately swing) pastures for 'Les Frites', albeit here served up in Latin rather than Afro flava. The EP's then completed by 'Listen', another electro-swing cut with a ragtime kinda feel.

Superfort - "Gloria" - (3:36) 120 BPM
Review: Spinforth's quest for freshness continues as he follows up the debut December Scour dispatch with another generous selection of chunky-jacksy bass joints. With gnarly fingers probing every party pie, across the collection we're treated to dubstep-meets-classic-Brooklyn ("Time To Rock"), 23rd century electro wobbles ("Boss DAT!") and VERY cheeky Cypress Hill booty business ("Insane Brains"... obviously!) And that's only three examples. Get Scouring.
