Review: Looking for some seasonal slammers? Aussie funkster Bondi Stereo has put on a spread of such proportions it will feed you (and your floor) well into the colder months; bulging with obese drum dynamics, rifled with references and drenched in shiny wet funk, each of these tracks show BS at his very best. Highlights include the refreshed and rechunked version of DJ T Rock & Squahy's "Nice Pretty Girl With A Crooked Smile" ("Pretty Girl") and the turbo-charged take on Nice & Smooth's "Hip-Hop Junkies" ("Funky Style"). The expert manipulation of Joe Cocker's "Summer In The City" hasn't gone unnoticed either. Here's hoping for a summer as hot as these tracks!

Review: Beautifully slo-mo and laced with squidgy bass, Breakspoll award winners Scour come correct with this funky little number from Cedar and Imagine. Strutting with swinging beats and a bassline so rude it'll make your father blush, it's the perfect bed for Imagine's slick lyrics. Remix-wise DJP adds some classic horns into the mix, Father Funk gets jazzy on the keys, J-Sound splashes out on some cheeky reverse mid-range bass processes while Howla throws down the gnarliest blend of the set with bolshy bass and bold stabs. One killer original, four creative pristine executed remixes; Scour have nailed this one.

Review: A self-confessed cockney wannabe (he's originally from Essex), Cockney Nutjob, has built quite a reputation for himself releasing agreeable jams for the likes of Radical Mixtape and BreakBeat Paradise. He's also a pretty formidable DJ too, but here it's about his productions and his come up with four party sizzlers for Spinforth's Scour label. Breaking it all down, the vibe for this EP is a fusion of retro 90s rapping fused with bouncy breaks and summery Ska rhythms and its total house party dynamite!

I'm Skankin' Out - (4:30) 118 BPM
Review: Four reggae-riddled bootlegs from breakbeat's favourite Nutjob. We kick off with a bulbous flip on Desmond Dekker's "Easy" before 'lively mode' is activated with a very well polished take on a classic reggae version of Smokey Robinson's "My Girl". You want to get even livelier? Look no further than "Heads Boppin'", Nutjob's twist on The Selector's "On My Radio". "I'm Skankin' Out" is the cherry on top of this very tasty cake. Adding a Jamaican sparkle to the Diana Ross sampling Biggie classic, Nutjob's successfully fused hip-hop, disco, reggae and breaks all into one track... And he's done so in style.

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.

Review: When most daddies get home, you know you're in for it over some misdemeanour or other. Not this one, when he gets home it's all about the party. Father Funk wouldn't know deep or dark music if it came up and slapped him in the face Tango-style. Instead he does what he does best, like here where he presents five fruity, happy tunes to make us all forget our woes. Some of our faves include the buzzy-electro-bas-and-go-go-beats of the title track, the frantic funk workout of "Block Party" and the 80s soul-sampling hip-house sing-a-long "Soul City".

Review: Now on their seventh release, Scour are really coming into their own on the glitchfunk / bootleg game. Here we find Brighton-based turntablist Mr Stabalina laying down four furiously funky twists: "Rock The Party" rides one of the fattest organ lines we've heard in this field all year, "Freak The Funk" samples about 50 of your favourite records over a steady midrange Featurecast-flavoured bass lick while "We Can Do It Again" takes us deeper into bluesy territories with a big piano riff and some really nerdy/brilliant cut & paste narration. Finally "Don't Stop" concludes where we started: juicy fruit organs and a latent sense of funk that's so tangible you can taste it. Ridiculous.

Review: Although they've been dabbling with releases on the bassier and glitchy side of things of late, for their newest signing Scour are on an electro-swing tip. However, the Groove Gigolos EP doesn't tackle the genre in a straight up manner, opting instead for a wider interpretation of the style. "Reflections" takes a familiar Charleston-style melody and fuses it with chuggy bass and staccato beats. "Can't Hold Back" again takes vintage samples and marries 'em to tough breakbeats sprinkled with some MC vocals. The style hopping continues further with even some dobby reggaeton ("Swing Mi Food") and even D&B soul ("J&B").

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.

Review: Skimming the purist, fullest fat cream from the nu-funk crop, Scour's behaviour at the forefront of the party-minded movement is nothing short of commendable. Their most extensive compendium to date, vibes range of the Little Walter-sampling "Ain't No Coolin" to the filtered jazz funk chops and slaps of "The Program". Between these two disparate-yet-wholly-consistent flavours you'll find subverted swing (Father Funk & Howla's "Got Swing?"), stark Jackson Five string struts ("Soul Rocka") and classic rap ("Two For The Crates"). Whipped and unashamedly fresh, Scour really are the cream of the crop right now.

Review: From their recent online musings, it seems that the award-winning Scour Records seem to be as equally fond of the other type of swinging as they are the style of music they've done so well at releasing thus far. Thankfully here we're only about the music and what a lot of it there is on Scoured Swing Vol 1. Here label owner DJ Spinforth selects eight of the best new jams around. Highlights include the classy, laid back opener "About Me" by The Fritz, the dubstep-meets-Charleston vibes of "Swingers" by Father Funk and the epic electro-swing monster "Cufflinks & Caviar" by Tuxedo Junction.

Review: This label recently launched by DJ Spinforth (and pals) as a next step extension to his biweekly column for the Ghetto Funk blog called 'The Scour', to highlight and showcase the unsigned talent that he encounters while 'scouring' Soundcloud. The next logical step was to actually release this stuff, so here's the impressive debut compilation snappily called Scoured Cream. Originally intended to showcase just five tunes, its now boasts eight including the stop-start blues-hop of "Sun No Shine", the wobble-soul of "Hell Yeah" and some electro-swing courtesy of Hong Kong Ping Pong.

And that's only three examples. Get Scouring.

Sitting somewhere between breaks and electro, these tracks are guaranteed to get any party on its way, especially if it involves university dormitories or student unions! Our tops picks have to be Phibes' "Needles" for thos soulful vocal samples, "Rockin' Cold" by Rollomatik and Cockney Nutjob's "Firepower" for the undeniable comic effect of that sample...you'll know what we mean!

Not a dull moment in sight, this is a must for all breaks, glitch and nu-funk selectors.
