Funky Friday Round-Up

Blazing beats from this week's featured artists, the Dirty Dubsters, as well as a double whammy from Bombastic Jam and a cracking free disco edit by James DB.

Wiz zis funk you are spoiling uz!

Dirty Dubsters - Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing EP

Blending crazy swing samples with fat breaks and skankin' dub stylings, this EP is full of unexpected twists and fist, floor pounding grooves.

As always the Dubsters hit us with heavy, heavy bass - serious wall-shaking bass, add to this a bucketfull of ragga snippets and some seriously groovy brass lines and you have a pretty heady concoction.

All four tracks are bangers, but 'Every Little Badman Skank' and 'Swing It Brother' are really floating my boat. This EP is out today, so don't delay - grab a copy right now.

Have a listen below and grab your copy exclusively from Juno.

Fuzzbox INc - Once Again

Bombastic Jam is THE hot label this year and we've got a look ahead at a couple of their forthcoming releases this week.

First up, 'Once Again' form Fuzzbox INc is a trippy bigbeat tune with psychedelic swirling sounds and booming bass. It comes with a serious remix from Badboe, which plays with groovy Rhodes melodies over crispy beats. The second remix is from Busta, who can apparently do no wrong at the moment - the bass on this one is killer!

You can preview it below and then stake out Bombastic Jam's Juno page and wait for the release, which should drop on August 23rd.

Bad Monkeys feat. Gizelle Smith – No. 1 Fan

Slamming, skippy beats, funked-out guitars and seriously soulful vocals from Gizelle Smith, make this Bad Monkeys track a surefire winner. The brass lines that hit on the breakdown are incredible and the second drop will send crowds into a funk frenzy.

Basement Freaks, Quincy Jointz and DJ Franksen all step up on remix duty serving up a NuFunk banger, a floaty percussive number and a housey groover respectively.

Another quality release, but another one you'll have to wait for, this one should hit the stores next week (2nd August) so not too long to hold your breath!

Listen below and check the label's Juno page on release day.
