A Very Royal Funky Friday Roundup

We have some really great releases this time round, let’s not waste any time and dive right into it!

Rory Hoy - Tonite E.P.

The Big Beat revivalist is back with his much anticipated solo E.P. on BigM Productions. This fabulous record is a real funktastic treat that blends the sounds of old with the sounds of now. The tunes ‘Tonite’ and ‘Hey, Hey (Funk It Up)’ are an amazing hybrid of the classic Big Beat sounds mashed with that of the modern day Nu-Funk sound while ‘Feel Tha Phunk’ is straight up classic Fatboy Breaks. To end the E.P., the Hoyster teams up with the legend that is Freddy Fresh for the smashing grand finale, ‘Trumped’. Absolutely Essential.

BigM Bootie Vol. 10

We love the BigM booties and guess what, they’re back! 4 really amazing uptempo party breaks numbers. Starting in 2007, the BigM Bootie series has helped in the revitalisation of the Big Beat genre and has made some fantastic booties ranging from Jimi Hendrix and even Lulu, designed for those who don’t take it too seriously!

Kool Hertz - Revive the Message E.P.

This is one incredibly funky E.P. Unlike the more organic tracks of previous Funk Weapons releases - this E.P. is in the Midtempo mashup style that fans of people on the Bombstrikes and Goodgroove labels will go crazy for. The best track personally for us is the title track, as we think it’s a brilliant tribute to the late, great hip-hop MC, Guru from Gang Starr

Pimpsoul - Let’s Do It (Right Now)

One of the biggest Nu-Funk/Ghetto Funk labels ever is back with another great release. In a change to the usual booty style, Pimpsoul provides a totally original track featuring the amazing talents of MC Sureshock. The production is a nice blend of the organic and electronic, and contains some great remixes from the Basement Freaks and Hong Kong Ping Pong.

Various - Party Breaks Vol. 1

Are you ready for a Nu-Funk party? You have come to the right place! Featuring BMD, Jayl Funk and Warson remixing classics such as Oasis, Jimmy Bo, Lyn Collins (Yeah, Woo!), and Afrika Bambaata and also contains the Funktion Junction favourite, ‘A DJ Is Not A Jukebox’. This is the ultimate remedy to funkless chart music that will make you smile and shake your hips!

Take care, see you soon!
