This collection of ‘remixes’ span from 2011 to 2019, covering many genres and featuring prominent MCs Gift Of Gab(Blackalicious),Imani(The Pharcyde), Lotek and N’Fa Jones. The LP follows the typical musical arc of a Tom ShowtimeDJ set. Beginning with Trip Hop, moving through Jazzy to Party Hip Hop, Funk next, followed by a Tropical excursion and finishing with Reggae ‘redubs’.
You never heard these tracks sound like this before. But then maybe that’s because these versions were never released before: an R&B stomper done as an anthem in the vein of Aretha’s Think, an uptempo R&B heater transformed into a looser slice of southern funky soul and a rock n roll classic re-imagined as a New Orleans-style funky nugget.

It’s quite marvelous to see so much fresh new music has been coming out of the legendary Breakbeat Paradise Recordings camp this year, as they bring together another top draw drop, this time courtesy of Stabfinger with his ‘Funkastick’ project. We kick off our journey into this one with the randomized wobbles of ‘Twenty Five Miles’, which is closely followed by the groovy guitar licks of ‘Disc Jockey’. Next we have the succulent percussive pressure of the title track ‘Funkastick’ which combines oldschool drum combos with exciting chord patterns to achieve a really cool energy. Finally we round up with the tasty drum crunches of ‘Simple Et Fonky’, topped with classic vocal samples.

Breakbeat Paradise have been on a serious spree of late, dropping regular releases with major quality behind them. This trend continues as they put together this self titled project from Lack Jemmon, consisting of four heaters. We begin with the catchy piano slices and vocal pinches of ‘Who’s Serious’, before landing on the super breaksy drum lines of ‘The Party Riddim’. Next up, ‘Would You?!’, with some more catchy vocal work and groovy rhythms before we finish up the project with a super electro rework entitled ‘Olly’s Heartbeat’. As a project, this one boasts some serious creativity, excellent work!
