Seven deadly fresh productions of hard jackin’ Bass and funk slammin Breaks and Ghetto Beats have landed… A hot saucy mama for your collection. Now seeing the break of dawn, from your number one vinyl and digital pusher, Breakbeat Paradise Recordings. Back again pumping a glitchy and funky Big Fat Mama Beats experience.
Monkeyboxing review: Having done the ‘old’ (with the retro 90s-ish sound of the Badass Funk EP from earlier in the year), Breakbeat Paradise Recordings now do the ‘new’ assembling a seven-artist strong squad consisting of Discobeta, Mr Rich & Caretaker, Crashgroove, Wiccatron, Funky Boogie Brothers, Rory Hoy and PulpFusion to take things musically bang-up-to-date with the Big Fat Mama Beats EP – all expectations (as raised by the title and the artwork) to the contrary. It warps, it grinds, it glitches and in directions you might not even have considered. Step forward Funky Boogie Brothers whose Crunch may well have you contemplating the background music on your next visit to your local curry emporium in a new light. DiscoBeta kick things off with a stomping, skanking Chinese Robots ‘re-up’, Mr Rich & Caretaker get glitchy on a soul tip, Crashgroove is back once again like a renegade master with a grinder, Wiccatron lulls you into a sense that you’re in classic boom-bap land before suddenly turning the FX up to Skrillex on the warp-o-meter. Oh yes and of course Rory Hoy gets to Rok Tha Party his reliable manner while Pulpfusion closes proceedings with the acid-drenched ‘almost’ title-track – Big Fat Mama which goes full Heavenly Social (so a little bit retro after all) with it’s Hard Hop Heathen and Josh Wink-isms. – monkeyboxing.com

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is proud to present Tom Showtime with his brand new 4-track release, The Butter Zone EP – previously only available on 12” vinyl. As it has done so many times before BBP is bringing Ghetto Funk and Funky Breaks back to its roots by putting the funk in focus and letting the rest speak for itself. Never before has it been done as well as this with Tom Showtime getting on board and tailor-making this 4-track EP of banging feel good jams around our genres beloved 105 BPM, aka The Butter Zone.
Tom Showtime is no newbie to the field having dropped laid-back funk bombs on lables like Groove Penguin, Booty Fruit, Riddim Fruit, Tru-Funk as well as an artist EP on the Ghetto Funk label.
This time he really means business as he takes us on a deep dive into his crates of samples and treats us with some flawless ghetto boogie jams. The EP even comes with a scratchapella cut – so DJs its time to gut business behind the wheels of steel…

To thank you all for the support of their new Ghetto Beats Vol. 2 the awesome Phibes bothers are giving away a mighty fine FREE DOWNLOAD! Rewobbling a classic joint by Rufus Thomas leaves us with no other choice than to hit the dance floor!
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is very excited to welcome back one of the hottest acts in the ghetto funk scene right now: Phibes who is back with the second installment of their Ghetto Beats series.
Just like the first volume the jams are scientifically designed for dance floor destruction. On Ghetto Beats Vol. 2 the Phibes brothers has gone back into the goldmine of Funk and Soul and dusted off some real classic jams and applied their signature beat bangin’ bass booming treatment.
From start to finish this EP has all it takes to get a party started. The soulful grooves and vocals, high octane beats and bass and hip hop acapellas to keep us hyped. Phibes is once again showcasing what ghetto funk is all about: Bringing back funk anthems in fresh bass infused arrangements. This is how it’s done!
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is proud to delivery once again the finest this scene has to offer.
“Phibes specialises in delivering no-nonsense floor filling party jams. His Ghetto Beats release from late last year undoubtedly soundtrack many a Christmas and New Year party. Well now it’s Spring and he’s decided its time for a follow up. Volume 2 has a hip-hop theme, beginning with opener “Gangstas N Honeys” where a classic Nas rap is set to a perky, tough big beat backing track. Vintage sounding brass is added to the crowd-pleasing formula on “Real Hip Hop”, “Belong To You” mixes electro and 70s soul and things wrap up with the arms-in-the-air anthem “Getting Funky Round Here”. ”

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back to mark the 10th year of being in the ghetto rockin; funky breaks business. To celebrate that we’ve decided to hit you hard with a 7-track vinyl release to represent the very best of what the label has to offer. 7 of the very best producers in the funky breaks scene have joined forces on this ruthless funky bomb of an EP!
With the Badass Funk EP the BBP All-Star team is taking it back to the timeless sound of the oldskool that the label has kept on rockin’ since they first started in 2006. Since then the label has navigated through related genres like Nu Funk and Ghetto Funk without loosing track of the base core. Every since the first release: Sound of Invasion by BadboE the label has kept a strong grip on the funk, the breaks and the street vibes of the oldskool.
To kick things off we brought back 2 of the very best producers in the game The Breakbeat Junkie & DJP, who’s been responsible of some of the classic BBP tunes like Freak Hop Part 3 and Represent The Style. Here they are back in better shape than ever to do their thing on the Go Off jam.
To follow things up we call for a true ghetto funk phenomenon: DJ B-Side, who just started to drop party bombs for us last year. But B-Side has been a household name in the ghetto funk scene for years and has released several legendary EPs for the Ghetto Funk label.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any funkier we brought in DJ Maars from down under to tease us with the skanky funk jam: Work That Funk.
It wouldn’t be much of a BBP anniversary release without a tune from label owner and funk breaks veteran: BadboE. All striped down to the core BadboE’s cooked up a funked up jam that oozes oldskool funk from start to finish.
Moving on with more skillful mashup business from one of the scene’s favorite DJ and producer: Roast Beatz. This is the first release from Roast Beatz on BBP since his epic album release: Luxury Boom Bap that dropped last year.
The Boom Bap continues on the track from BBP residents Mako & Mr Bristow, who team up for some more of their addictive throwback funk business.
Last but certainly not least a true expect of the oldskool: Morongroover is ending things big with his Good ‘ol Days joint.
Time goes by but it has become evident that the funk stays – and BBP is right here to make sure it will. Stay tuned for another 10 years of funk, beats and breaks…
“Blimey. Hold the floor. When a label like Breakbeat Paradise celebrates ten years in the business you know you can expect some heavyweight party breaks action and with a name like Badass Funk EP – you know that shit is going to be stanker than JB’s jock strap. Don’t be expecting any wobble though because part of this one’s charm is that in celebrating a labelestablished before the rise of the wobble, the content reflects a time when all you needed to rock that spot were phat breaks and samples.
Flying the funky flame are a range of BBP regulars from grizzled veterans The Breakbeat Junkie & DJP and label don Badboe, to relative newcomer Morongroover via ghetto funk wunderkind B-Side, reggae-hip-hop fiend DJ Maars, regular hip-hop fiend DJ Roast Beatz (in non-hip-hop mode) and nineties refugee Mako in cahoots once more with his sometime partner in crime – the easy rollin’ Mr Bristow.”
