Funky Friday Round-Up

Another week of bangers to get your funky strut on to! Loads to get through this week with releases from Mash & Munkee, Johnny Pulse, a phat-ass remix from Badboe and a free mix from D-Funk.

Mash & Munkee - Work It Out EP

Forthcoming on Funk Weapons, this slab of wax is so hot you'll singe your fingers. Pure funky vibes and a deep fuzz bassline with slick disco touches make the title track a surefire smash as Mash & Munkee continue to show they're on a roll in 2010.

On the flip, 'Make A Difference' drops groovy percussion touches, fly, familiar guitar grooves and laid-back vocal snippets backed with a sharp horn section and some lush flute interludes. Serious business.

Neighbour's remix of 'Work It Out' is a guitar-driven bass-heavy stomp through Funky Town while their take on the B-side takes the track into deeply funky synth disco territory. Awesome work.

Have a listen below and keep an eye out for this release - out soon!

BXP Soundsistema - Balkan Train

This is a chugging eccentric ska tune that would sound right at home in a Mr Scruff set, but the real fire here is the Badboe remix. Infusing it with acid touches and hip-hop sensibilities, Badboe once again proves he's got the Midas touch.

Shazalakazoo comes with a tough wubber bass re-rub that's also well worth checking out.

Johnny Pulse - KaBooom

KaBooom indeed - techy touches, fantastic synth work and old-skool breakbeat touches fuse to fierce effect on this triple-tracker from Ireland's Johnny Pulse.

'Beechmount Car Park Waltz' hits with wobble bass and upbeat ska samples, sure to inject some bounce into the laziest of dancefloors.

Funky beats and heavy acidic synths make for some serious groove on 'Don't Be Pathetic' - which also boasts some of the crispiest beats we've heard this week!

 'Stick 'Em Up' rounds off this tidy package, with more ska brass, some massive crowd-pleasing Funlovin' Criminal samples, bass by Dangerous Dave and a dope guitar groove designed to leave a smile on the face of everyone it touches.

This one is out now on BulaBeats, listen and buy on their Juno page.

Dirty Dubsters - Soundclash EP

Just space to give props to this release - four tracks of booty funk from the guys who are re-defining the word 'prolific', popping out a phat EP almost every week at the moment.

Huge bass shoots through every track, the standout being 'Soundclash', which captures breezy summer ska vibes and injects them with tough beats and snatches of hip-hop vox. Bad-ass business.

Listen below and treat yourself on Juno.

D-Funk presents 'The Good Stuff'

Now you know we like to spoil you here at - but this week we've even surprised ourselves!

Dropping over an hour of party anthems, D-Funk's 'Good Stuff' mix has been spinning in our iPod all week and you can listen and download for free below.

From Q-Tip to Sister Sledge, D-Funk has mashed, mixed and re-vamped a whole heap of funky classics, and included loads of his own material, some exclusives and some cheeky pre-release tasters.

Do yourself a favour, play this loud!
