It's Funky Friday Roundup!

Bonjour! As it is time for another Funky Friday Roundup! Let’s not waste any more time, and begin!

Jem Stone - Perpetual Lotion E.P.

Been at #1 in the Juno Breakbeat charts for quite some time. This is a fantastic release from the amazing Jem Stone featuring an eclectic mix of Jazzy Hip-Hop Grooves and funky breakbeat. If you love the Jazz & Milk Breaks series from back in the day, you will love this!

The Breakbeat Junkie VS DJP - Time To Roll E.P.

Some really funky vibes on this release. The Breakbeat Junkie teams up with DJP for a really dope E.P. that will impress dancefloors everywhere. Also includes a remix of Time To Roll from the All Good Funk Alliance, and a solo track from both The Breakbeat Junkie (The Mink) and DJP (Controlling The Club). Essential!

Itsu Uno - Skorpio Dope Jam

This is fantastic! Itsu Uno strikes again with another Funky Big Beat banger following on from the outstanding ‘B-Boy Rave For The Ageing Hipster’ - Skorpio Dope Jam is just too amazing for words. To make this release even more special, the B-Side has a dope remix of his song (The Headlock) by DJ Spatts that samples the old timey tune ‘Mr. Sandman’ - Absolutely brilliant!

DJ Butcher - Chopshop Vol.5

Fresh from the cutting room abattoir and straight onto the packed dancefloors is a really good release from DJ Butcher, that provokes the Midtempo Funk jams of the 1980’s. A very nostalgic trip through the history of dance music of the time recreated for the modern Dancefloor. If you want to listen to the best of the 80’s without the cheese in just one go, buy this great release.

Mr. Bird - Heavy Duty Booty Vol. 7

Some wonderful laid-back grooves from Mr. Bird that will help you get the true feeling of summer (which is hard in old Blighty with the insanely inclement weather and all). This release also has a fantastic remix of a certain Soul Legend, who is, in my humble opinion, the greatest of all time, singing something about being superstitious is not the way to be! Summer is here in this really dope release

Empresarios - Sabor Tropical Remixed

And last (but not least) is a reggae banger from Empresarios that has been remixed by the Fort Knox Five, Quincy Jointz, The All Good Funk Alliance, Telephunken, and Thomas Blondet & Second Sky. An absolutely essential remix pack featuring some really great remixes of an already great song.

Take care and let’s hope that the Sun shines!
