Title:Break The Funk
Label:Breakbeat Paradise
Attention all funky breakbeat heads! The Danish independent label AuditoryDesigns is proud to present the full-length debut Break the Funk by BadboE. We have listened to his groovy tracks over and over at the office and cannot seem to get enough. This crispy breakbeat bomb is meant to kick some flavour to the floor and we are sure that a lot of DJs will find BadboE's touch on the genre refreshing. Break the Funk consists of 15 original tracks with plenty of sampling, scratches, good beats and a praised remix of Dynamite made by All Good Funk Alliance (AGFA). BadboE gets his inspiration from late 60's and 70's funky productions like other breakbeat artists, and has refined it all in his mix with 80's vocals and hooks. On "Funky Medley" MC Sens One is guest performing and Linn Lavinsky from Phat Old Mamas (has worked with Marc Collin from Nouvelle Vagues) is spicing "Spread the Words" up, with her highly addictive and sensual voice. BadboE has already released numerous EPs among them Loose your Funky Self and most recently Dynamite also on AuditoryDesigns, both received good responses from funk DJs all over the world, both title tracks are included on Break the Funk. BadboE proves that you do not need to be born American to make some heavy funk-influenced catchy tunes. With the approach of bringing UK-style breaks in combination with soulful vocal samples and elements from the Danish hip-hop heritage, he has his own distinctive sound. At AuditoryDesigns we are not afraid to say that BadboE is one of the most interesting musicians at the funky part of the Scandinavian scene. So tune the ears in at planet Break the Funk, it's partytime!
Title:Heartbox EP
Label:Hot Corner
Who the f_ck is Blockboy? In his recording studio and atelier in an old building flat in Munich, Blockboy regularly descends into spheres of visual art and sound, while swinging between bliss and desperation because of his perfectionism. With attention to detail, the communication designer plays and records all instruments himself, strictly according to the motto: keep it real! To put a label on Blockboy's sound is not easy, since he moves between Ambient, Downbeat, HipHop, TripHop, Dubstep and Turntablism - always enhanced by an affection for detailed samples of vinyl treasures.

Artist:Frameworks & BluRum 13
Title:The Brickbuilders EP
Label:My First Moth
For their 10th release Manchester based label My First Moth present a collaboration between two visionary artists from opposite sides of the Atlantic. New York born rapper BluRum 13 should need no introduction after lacing countless records from the last decade with his distinctive gravel-voiced flow, most notably the classic Ninja Tune album "Children of Possibility" which he recorded as one-third of One Self alongside DJ Vadim and Yarah Bravo. Producer Frameworks is a relative newcomer although still fiercely prolific, having notched up collaborations with Long Island legends QnC and UK rapper Bang On amongst others. With releases on First Word Records, Hero Records and Organik Recordings, Frameworks is quickly forging a reputation for a solid production technique, fusing old-school sensibilities with a touch of live instrumentation and a keen ear for a killer sample. This 12" features two tracks from the forthcoming Brickbuilders LP along with heavy remix treatments from four distinctly individual producers. First up, MFM's own Neko Neko drops an afro-funk tinged dancefloor bomb not dissimilar to his recent "Trouble in the Streets" 12" which sold out in a matter of weeks. Mixkings' Bunty Beats follows this with some next-level slowmo reversed sampling on a tripped-out atmospheric tip. Flip for some darker leftfield leanings from Danny Drive Thru, fresh from recent outings on Project Mooncircle, Fat City and Mind On Fire Records. And lastly Wah Wah 45s finest Part-Time Heroes wind things up nicely with an epic uptempo cinematic workout reminiscent of some of Bonobo's instrumental productions.
Artist:Spaced Out Family

A shiny and well-crafted 12", this is the debut EP from beat making trio 'Spaced Out Family' with the Andalusian record label. These six psychedelic instrumental hip hop tracks take the listener on a cosmic trip with 70's free experimental sounds as the first stop, passing through the golden era of rap breaks and ending in the vanguard of the contemporary abstract electronic beats scene.
Title:Chinchilla EP
Label:Breakbeat Paradise
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is happy to welcome back Morlack, with his very first solo 12" vinyl, with 4 hot jams straights from the funky sequences of Morlack studios.

Morlack has a unique style and he is known and loved for his crooked samples and always spot-on ghetto funk productions and this EP shows the cream of the crop of the of the Morlack style.

Title:Como Estan Bitches?
Label:First World
Souleance are back! Following on from the success of their debut LP 'La Belle Vie' from earlier this year, the French duo have been busy in the studio producing La Beat Tape. 20 tracks deep, the release is aimed squarely at the DJs, with every beat guaranteed to shake the danceflloor. Souleance are producer Fulgeance (Musique Large / MPM) and DJ Soulist (What The Funk Paris?). Since releasing their debut EP (Le Monde) back in 2009, they have built a solid reputation for their idiosyncratic take on modern beats. With fans including Gilles Peterson, Danny Breaks and Mr Thing, their debut album was the culmination of 3 years of beat-making, touring, partying and drinking too much Pimms. Whilst other producers would rest on their laurels after releasing their debut, Souleance got straight back into the studio to produce La Beat Tape - their sole aim to create tracks that they would DJ with themselves. The result is 20 tracks of pure dancefloor fire. This 7" is our pick of the tracks that we think the DJs will love most. It takes in heavy Turkish breaks (Sauce Samorai), Hammond funk (L'insouleance), Just Blaze-style horn-heavy hip hop (Como Estan Bitches) and loose-limbed hip hop funk (BBQ & Pimms). This limited edition 7" containing features artwork by long-term collaborator Alice Dufay: it's sure to join their previous vinyl releases as a genuine collectors item.

Title:EP Three
Label:Boogie Boutique
Finnish DJ crew Rollomatik break out on the Boogie Boutique imprint with a two track release that aims to represent the Arctic Circle fully in the nu funk/breakbeat scene. Formed of Hesh & Eaves, Rollomatik aim to rock the party and that much is evident on this cheeky 12" with "We Love To Party" deftly blending Will Smith with Chic amidst a melange of other recognisable samples. A similar approach runs through flipside jam "The Greatest" as Rollomatik lay down the vocal from an oft used Q-Tip solo joint over a heavily filtered take on Sister Sledge's most ubiquitous track.
Title:Peace Soup EP
Label:Jalapeno Records
Hoglodytes is the unlikely pairing of UK West Country producers Chubb Nice and Vinyl Peasant with New York rapper Emskee. How did they meet ? really don't ask me - I don't know and I can't imagine but what I do know is that this is some re-wind and start from the beginning righteous 90's hip hop vibes thrown down by some people who clearly love what they do.

Title:Greatest Rewinds EP
Label:Off The Chain
After blowing up the reggae mash-up scene with his very first release back in 2006, DJ Shepdog has quickly established himself as a dancefloor connessieur mixing up hip hop, reggae, drum & bass and whatever else fits the bill of "Righteous Party Vibes". Now a firm favourite at festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Big Chill, Outlook and many more, he can also regularly be found playing at clubs across the UK & Europe. Unfortunately many of Shep's early releases are now unavailable on vinyl as they were only every pressed in very limited quantities (some often fetch a handsome price on eBay & Discogs!) so we thought it was time to give them another lease of life on fat wax! "Bigger Than Jamrock" was Shepdog's first ever single and his calling card for future mash-ups that never fail to get a reaction on the dancefloor. Long since deleted it is now made available on vinyl for the first time in 5 years. "Ganja" is a remix that he was commissioned by Rob Da Bank for the Dub Pistols, which has never been issued on vinyl. Over on the flip is a dancehall inspired take on some classic party hip hop that should also get the hands in the air, only ever available on the "Cut Ups, Muck Ups & Bruck Ups" CD. The EP is finished off by something a little bit deeper, using his old mate Jstar's brilliant "One Life riddim" and spicing it up with some timeless NY MCs, again never available on vinyl before now!

Title:Young Adults EP
Label:Young Adults
Young Adults is a new housier-flavoured label started by the good folks behind Friends Of Friends. As part of a growingly endangered breed of all vinyl musicologists, L.A.'s Young Adults opt to let the records play in this digital age of instant gratification. The first installment in their commitment to pressed wax platters culls a collection of spectrum exploring body music from cohorts both near and far. Starting off the festivities is the golden child, Suzanne Kraft, whose feel-good stunner 'Jus U' exemplifies why Running Back was oh so eager to add his talents to their ever impressive roster. The sunsoaked strut that shimmers on this sampler track is just a teaser of things to come on Lil Suzie's forthcoming 12" EP for YA later in the summer. Next up is The Dead Rose Music Company with a shimmering study in repetition that only adds to their laureled cloud of mystique. A driving pulse and infectious vocal snippet assure that 'Soothe My Mind' soars in both headphone and floor-tested settings. On the flip, Urulu brings down the lights and cranks up the diva on a soul-studded banger that burrows its way into the deepest psyche caverns. 'Missing You' balances grit with a glossed-out sheen personified by loopy lipstick signatures on rusted bathroom mirrors. Rounding out the affair is a dank and dirty collab between up-and-comers Grown Folk and LOL Boys. 'Ghost Path' exists deep in the acidic bowels of the night and guides its followers through uncharted terrains without a flashlight. Make sure to buckle up.
Artist:Colm K
Label:Bstrd Boots
Irish producer Colm K returns to Bastard Boots after 'Dancing Skulls', his big tune on the label in 2010. This time, Colm dives into the world of lush beat production with a sampling of some unlikely sources. On the A side, 'Slipping (Into Tomorrow)' builds itself around a classic Steve Miller Band vocal snippit with deep hip hop drums and live bass playing that would make Thundercat proud. On the flip, 'Go!' is a deft chop on 'The Look Of Love'
Big Fun In Big Town front
Artist:Various Artists
Title:Big Fun In Big Town
Label:Five Day Weekend
If you think the title of this DVD sounds like a struggling foreigner's attempt to describe his trip to New York during the formative years of a cultural revolution, you would be spot on. Filmed in New York City in 1986, 'Big Fun In The Big Town' chronicles the emerging hip hop culture through the lens of an upstart Dutch filmmaker named Bram Van Splunteren. Armed with nothing more than a camera crew and vague understanding of English, Van Splunteren's fearless excursion led him to the gritty landscapes of Harlem, South Bronx, and the Lower East Side during the peak years of the 1980s crack epidemic, a backdrop which proved to be the incubator for a breeding ground for hip hop pioneers. Bram happened to be in the right place at the right time. Putting his own personal safety at risk, he travelled to remote locations in neighbourhoods where no outsiders were normally allowed, capturing the essence of that time and place, while also managing to get interviews with and footage of rap heavyweights and emerging artists, many of whom now refered to as legends. The amazing scenes include a 17 year old LL Cool J greeting the crew from the doorstep of his grandmother's apartment (where he still lived), Chicago's Mystery Crew trying to snag a meeting with Russell Simmons outside the small offices of Def Jam on the same day Van Splunteren happened to be interviewing him, DMC freestyling to an unreleased beat on the cassette deck of his brand new and first Cadillac, and a still skinny Biz Markie beatboxing for Roxanne Shante on stage. Released for the first time ever in a physical format, 'Big Fun In The Big Town' is a must-see, must-own for any true rap historian, and a window into a time and place many of us can now only learn about through study. Travel back to where it all began and relive the inspiring struggle of hip hop music all over again. Running Time : 41:28. Region-Free DVD.
Title:Ghetto Funk Presents WBBL

Label:Breakin Bread
Breakin Bread drop the second single from Japanese producer Kazahaya who's been working with US MC's. Proper boom bap music on both sides, uptempo dancefloor craziness on one side, midtempo bumping gear on the flip.

In 2007 he sent a demo to Breakin Bread and the resulting EP "Remember Hip Hop" became a bestselling hip hop release of that year. Because it was a mashup with loads of famous MC's on it Breakin Bread had to pull it from release! Since then Kaza has been getting mad props for his beats so he decided to work with some US MC's and this series of 7"s is the result.

A - Sounds of The City feat D-Stroy

One for the b-boys and b-girls. D-stroy rips it over an uptempo beat designed with the dancefloor in mind. The old school references abound but this is a fresh and forward thinking slice of proper hip hop on wax with a chorus to die for.

D-Stroy was born and raised in Bushwick, Brooklyn and he met Tony Touch at school forming a group called Touch and D-Stroy. After school he formed the legendary Arsonists and he went on to open up/host for X-zibit, Ludacris, The X-ecutioners, Papa Roach, L.L. Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Eminem to name a few. D-Stroy is currently featured on releases by Marco Polo, Q-Unique's, Pro-Sinnerz CD and The Snowgoons "Trojan Horse" LP. He is not a thug, he's an adult. He's not underground or commercial, he is HIP HOP. Perfect for working with a Japanese producer

B - Stay feat Paulie Rhyme

Kaza's beat on this one is a blessed out bit of summer goodness showing he can rock the filtered styles with the best of them. Paulie Rhyme waxes lyrically about his love of hip hop culture, something all true hip hop heads worldwide will recognise from this track forged somewhere between Southern Japan and West Coast USA.

Paulie Rhyme is a Bay Area based; Cleveland bred emcee, giving people music that touches mind, body, spirit, and soul. Putting in work in the indie circuit for a good portion of this decade, Rhyme has worn many hats in the industry before finding his calling in front of the mic.

Homeboy Sandman's debut on Stones Throw is a six-track EP, as the artist describes it, "with songs dealing with content no one has ever rapped about before in the history of rap music.

Artist:Virgil Howe & Mark Claydon
Title:The Claydon Break / Cosmic Exotica
Label:Breakin Bread
More drums! Beats, breaks, rolls, all live, no loops. Breakin Bread continue their specialist Drums Series of 7"s with Mark Claydon joining Virgil Howe for 2 killer beat heavy tracks. Breaks for the future!

Breakin Bread is rooted in hip hop and all things related to hip hop so tracks with heavy drums and breakbeats are staples of the output of the label and the turntables of the clubs. The Drums Series features drummers that the Breakin Bread Crew have got to know since they launched their club night thirteen years ago.

The Claydon Break: This time round the guys take it back to more of an original 70s funk band sound. Mark Claydon underpins the track with a steady uptempo breaqk. Virgil and Nick Hirsch from The Killer Meters take the track into driving heavy deep funk rock territory. A couple of clean breaks are embellished with big build ups and multi instrumental frenzy. We were all in the studio for this one and its one of the most intense studio sessions we've ever done.

Cosmic Exotica: This is Virgil's homage to rare as hens teeth Asian Psych Disco breaks. He can imagine Finders Keepers or Now Again records re-issuing this strange but break heavy offering. Think of a Chinese Big Band dropping this in the early 70's for some Grind-House biker movie drug scene that gets a bit lary as a massive fight breaks out! Uptempo breaks for the dancefloor!
Artist:Sonny Rhodes / The Right Kind
Title:You Better Stop / My Money Is Funny
Is it Funk? Soul? Mod? RnB? Yes and no and yes again, it's a bit of everything! Sonny Rhodes' 'You Better Stop' is an alround post-deepfunk/soul crossover club dancer, good sounding for everyone. First spun on the European cross-genre funk n' soul scenes by UK DJs like Ian Wright and Fryer, now getting picked up on the UK Northern scene which is now leaving the old stompers behind and is embracing the bouncing rhythms of funk. Fryer managed to get to the tapes which amazingly were still intact, so we went to work and transferred them at half-speed for a truly explosive sound!

On the flip we have another very cool instrumental track from the same period. Labelmates "The Right Kind" whip up a funky R&B stormer with a slight moddy edge which never goes amiss for the '60s R&B and New Breed lovers. Not to be overlooked!
Artist:Various Artists
Title:Turntables On The Hudson - Reflecting Cielo
Another limited 12" sampler from the Turntables On The Hudson crew, leading up to the brand new compilation CD celebrating their monthly Friday residency at NYC's Cielo club. This party platter features more of the sounds and artists that have been dropped by Nickodemus and friends on the big Funktion One sound-system over the last eight years! Things kick off with Mr.Scruff's infamous 'Pickled Spider', a ripping dubstepper of track with huge wobbly bass and delayed female vocals urging all dancers to the floor. Next up is 'Dub For Mali' by San Fran's own Pleasuremaker (of the Afrolicious crew), featuring Yacouba Diarra on vocals and Thievery Corporation's Rob Garza weighing in on some extra production. To the flip, SUMO's 'Zwakalani' could be one of the party's most heavily spun tunes since it was released five years ago, with it's booming drums, guitar licks, and uplifting vocals. Clocking in last on the 12" is 'Lovesick' by T.O.T.H. family-friend Mariella, remixed into a deep boogie-house vibe with heavy bass for the clubs by Mark De-Clive Lowe.
Artist:Randa & The Soul Kingdom
Title:The Things (Mooqee & Beatvandals Mixes)
Randa and The Soul Kingdom released 'The Things' swinging funky disco 12 (FSR092) on Freestyle Records early June 2011, a pretty straight ahead affair produced and guitar scratched by one of the busiest men in the music bizznizz: Lance Ferguson, the man responsible for Freestyle soul-jazz organ trio Cookin On 3 Burners, as well as The Bamboos & Lanu projects on Tru Thoughts Recordings. For this booty style remix they have taken Randa's outstanding vocal and completely reworked the track into an electro funk bomb. Toughening things up but losing non of the funk the mixes aim straight for the dancefloor.
Title:One Of Those Days EP
Label:Breakbeat Paradise
BBP Recordings is very proud to welcome back a true legend in the evergrowing Nu-Funk scene - BadboE is ready to drop the first single from his long anticipated second album. He has teamed up with 2 heavyweighters of bassdriven Ghetto Funk Pimpsoul from the UK and Bryx, who are killing dancefloors in Canada at the moment. UK-based MC Coppa is delivering the vocal contribution to the reggae dub grooves on the A-side title track One of Those Days.
Title:Strike Up The Band
Label:Jack To Phono
Tombee is back with his 4th release on Jack to Phono with Strike Up The Band. Hailing from Newcastle (home of the Brown) DJ, producer and film-maker Tombee often describes his sound as Folk-Hop. The definition of Folk music, if you look it up, is music handed down from generation to generation, which when considering the beats interwoven and flipped here, kinda makes sense...

This time Tombee teams up with Mr Konfuze & Lunatic, Tom Eno and Winter North Atlantic to create one eclectic download and remix package! From a dancefloor friendly party vibe to the ambiance of Winter North Atlantic.
Artist:Prosper & Rory Hoy

Title:Skankin' Riddim
Label:Super Hi-Fi
Hailing from Sydney, Australia: DJ, producer and beat maker Omegaman has laid down an infectious groove with his new ass wigglin? track "Skankin' Riddim". Proudly presented by Super Hi-Fi Recordings, it's a cheeky salute to old skool Ska with a straight up breakbeat, dubby bassline, majestic horns courtesy of Scotty Sax, and vocal samples from reggae legend Horseman. The release also features an all-star lineup of remix artists.

The vinyl release will include Omegaman, Thomas Blondet, Stickybuds, and Busta. The digital release adds two more remixes to the stellar roster courtesy of All Good Funk Alliance and Fretless. Styles range from straight up ska with big beats, lounge core head-nodders, to breakbeat stompers with some seriously womping bass action - this release covers all bases with a nice variation of genres.
Artist:Nick Thayer
Title:Rhythm Method EP
Label:Bombstrikes Records
Following hot on the heels of the outstanding Pimpsoul ep, Bombstrikes once again maintain their scene leading formula. This time out it's the turn of Nick Thayer to deliver the dancefloor goodies. In a style very much his own, Nick raises the bar even higher with this incredibly strong three-track ep.

There is no messing about on this EP "Do You Want more" on the A side hits hard. With vocal hooks and guitars kicking the track off in fine style before the almighty lead synth hits with guaranteed head nodding approval. For our money this is an absolute monster. Over on the flip, first up is "Rhythm Method" which brings Nick's trademark swing and movement to the proceedings. Vocals play perfectly with the synth and horn riffs to ensure plenty of dancefloor ass shaking will follow. Rounding things off nicely is the bass heavy groover "Ladies Love Cool Jams" which is so devastatingly executed it is bound to hit the right spots.
Artist:Omas & Aver
Title:Out Of Time
Label:My First Moth
Following on from a few well received 7"s last year Omas hooks up with long time collaborator Aver (aka Joey Average) for his new single. Aver himself is well at home behind the boards as beatmaker for Manc hip-hop crew The Natural Curriculum who are known for regularly tearing up stages across the North-West with their excellent live shows.

Here they turn their hands to an uptempo funk rock workout where funky guitar licks collide with heavy drums and spoken word cuts. With its expertly chopped drum breaks and fills the track comes across like a dusty library music faceoff between The Meters, Rare Earth and Rjd2!

On the flip My First Moth regular DJ Mischief is on remix duties, reworking a few choice elements of the original into a tasty Latin hip-hop groover. Syncopated double bass and Latin percussion builds up towards big anthemic horn stabs which set the track off into proper club banger territory!
Artist:Guitar Ray
Title:Funky Pete Parts 1 & 2
Label:Tramp Recods
Guitar Ray, whose actual name was Raymond Washington, recorded just over half a dozen 45RPM singles in New Orleans from the late 1950s to 1968. Four of those had been released on Hot Line Records out of New Orleans, which was a subsidiary of Nola Records. Wardell Quezergue, one of the principals of the companies, did most of the production and arranging for them - as shown on the label: "Arr by Wardell."

Released in around 1967, the singer's own Funky Pete appeared on the third of Washington's four singles for Hot Line. It was a straight-ahead dancer that emphasized the rhythmic elements of the song, all locked into a tight, spring-loaded, high energy groove, probably propelled by el supremo beat-man, Smokey Johnson. The drum and vocal intro that Quezergue set up pulls you right into the action; then the horns come in and push the groove to maximum heights.

As with all re-issues on Tramp it comes with excellent sound quality and original label artwork too. Because Funky Pete Pt.1 also appears on the Feeling Nice compilation (TRCD/LP-9012) they did a strictly limited press run of 111 hand-numbered copies on the Hot Line issue. Be Quick!
Title:Disparate EP
Kidboy is an upcoming producer and versatile musician based in Granada who is always searching for a balance between organic and electronic sounds. On his debut EP he teams up with vocalists such as Ohmega Watts, BluRum13 and Julio Cesar Rodriguez and a bunch of excellent jazz musicians. Bored by too many monotonous releases out there Kidboy wanted to present a diverse EP ? with percussive Broken Beats, heavy basslines sounds and Latin instrumentation on the one hand and very mellow and jazzy Hip Hop tracks on the other!

The EP starts off with Yo Me Voy De Aqui a progressive dj-tune filled with organic latin samples and an enormous sub bassline ? one truly for the dancefloor! Also on the latin tip, Chang?? De Manteca features cuban singer Julio Cesar Rodriguez on vocals and percussion, Cesar's Salad pianist Jo Junghanss on keys and Andrew Linch on sax on top of an energetic Broken Beat.

Eventually Kidboy takes you back into the 90's ? the golden era of Hip Hop ? with organic beats, jazz driven instrumentation and sophisticated rapping. The Culture features Ohmega Watts, a virtuoso rapper from the States who has released on Ubiquity and already worked with well-known acts such as Quantic, The Bamboos or Breakestra. A Moment To Think presents BluRum13, known for his project One Self with DJ Vadim and Yarah Bravo, who came to Granada to collaborate with Kidboy.
Artist:Space Ranger
Title:Plastic Romance
Label:Love Monk
Dancing with tears in your eyes on the remixes of "Plastic Romance", one of the ace tracks off of "What About The Magnetic Fields?", Space Ranger's debut album on Lovemonk.

The German outfit returns with it fourth single on Lovemonk, the wonderful "Plastic Romance" featuring the chilly vocals of Captn K, who can also be heard on previous single "Nightmoves". Bonar Bradberry throws some beef on the barbie and turns the slo-mo disco original into a ultra-funky dancefloor stormer, while the fabulous Rimshooters, a.k.a. Massimiliano Pagliara and Rotciv, speed it up and take it back to the eighties.

Motorcity Drum Ensemble shift into fifth gear as well and undress the tune while they're at it, leaving Captn K sounding even chillier. Groove Attack & Innervisions hero Marcus Worgull liked the MCDE remix so much, he decided to do his own edit of it. A fabulous package if ever there was one.
Artist:Peabody & Sherman
Title:All Your Bass Are Belong To Us
Label:Super Bro
Taking a turn to the left, Mssrs P&S head out of town to where beats are best, albeit backwards. Mining Afrocentric and South American beat traditions, combining them with contemporary studio trickery and dub stylings, our heroes end up not quite where they expected, which of course is normal. The starting point was the bassheavy nusounds coming from Brazil, Argentina, and Africa, with the endpoint expected to be some new and interesting rhythmic material. As usual, the process begins with some livetracking, but the result has been chopped and flipped so many times, and had a kitchensink'sworth of sounds, and chants, whistles, sirens, and other material appropriated from the World Wide Web, that no one is too sure what came from where, and how they got where they are. The A side starts with a remix by DRM, who typically selects a few elements from the original mix, and weaves an insistant rhythmic slice of dancefloor delicacy. He adds some extra guitar, and then as if from nowhere, some techno-y synth that should sound out of place, but doesn't. That is paired with a second remix, from Chancha via Circuito, who radically slows down the original, but uses most of the basic elements, plus a few tricks of his own. Auditory cough syrup indeed. The B contains three original tracks which are very different in sound and approach. 'Ayayaya' has a long mournful intro which suddenly drops into a mutant funk bass with raucous chant provided by some Pacific Islanders, toss some drunken horn choruses on top, and there you have it. 'Last Drunk At The Party? is built on a bent Afrofunk bass, with African chanting and whistles, air horn melodies, more whistles, and then yet more whistles. 'Bahia Shuffle' takes some tuff Batacuda beats, adds oodles of dubbed out keys, and floats spoken word intros from Middle Eastern 78rpm recordings for extra flavour.
