Ken is blasting into the scene with an instant classic funky joint called Closer To The Sun, and is being accompanied by veteran established names on remix duties. US-based Kenhas a good ear for chilled funky hooks and has cooked up a perfect example on the title tune on this EP.
Good friend and partner producers from discObetais taking it further down the chilled path with their down tempo trippy mix which will be sure to please your ear. discObetahas featured on multiple compilations and remixes as well as dropped the Chinese Robots EP right here on BBP.
Legendary electro disco funk producer from New York Ursula 1000 also adds his signature treatment to the Closer To The Sunjam by adding some catchy electro synth and beats to keep the trippy vibes going strong.
German producer-duo Mined & Forrest takes the track to the dancefloor by applying a well-arranged midtempo groove and some ghetto funk beats. The track is spiced up with a good doze of catch vocal samples for the ghetto funkers.
Last but not least we invited Australian bass producer Bezwunwho cooked up a smooth housy bass mix to keep the party rocking well into the night.
Lots of diversity and twists on a classic original joint on this EP to keep things funky as always – right here on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings.
Bio on Ken:
KEN ascends from a state: The range of perception, understanding, vision and knowledge. Bringing the debut single “Closer To The Sun” to life with a crunchy break beat, a flurry of sitars and and infectious blues style vocal. Hailing from the North East (U.S.), lifelong friends and collaborators of discObeta, KEN is a seasoned musician and songwriter. There are rumors that KEN also works with well know downtempo artists holding duties as a guitarist, bassist, drummer, and engineer. Not much more is known about this multi-talented artist… and he likes it that way. KEN has had his share of label deals, brushes with famous artists and has a unique relationship with the backbone of one the greatest bands in the world. Where the many desperately seek the limelight, this stoic artist strays away from it and would rather relish in the wash of melody, beats and the exotic. KEN may or may not be the future of music and he likes it that way. This is surely not the last time we will hear from this mysterious music man. Always in the lab cooking up something new to provoke and stimulate your feets and ears. KEN cares about music as a healer and soundtrack to life.

Pecoe is back to follow up on last year’s successful EP drop – with yet another banging 4-track EP showcases some new production skills from the notorious beat master and maskup champ Pecoe.
On the Funky Shizzle EP – Pecoe is taking us on a journey thorough beats and breaks – from funky sounds via some reggae vibes and over to some dancefloor heavy street jams. Pecoe has one of the most sought after soundcloud pages for funky mashup but on this release, he is taking a more serious approach on the productions and spicing it up with just enough classic samples to keep it interesting.
The EP kicks off with the Funky Shizzle, which features some serious funky grooves and some banging beats. This is followed up with a badass twist of a classic on the Delight jam before turning on the smoothness on the High Ground track, which also adds a new twist to a classic joint. Things are ending with a banger on the Game Face jam, which delivers some big beats and rolling basslines to keep the dancefloors moving.
Yet again Breakbeat Paradise Recordings keeping it funky on those dancefloors across the globe this summer. More badass funky grooves are coming soon. Stay tuned.
“Let the funky times roll as Pecoe joins forces with the almighty Breakbeat Paradise Recordings on this brand new four track collection, destined to drag even the shyest mover into a swift jig. We begin with the subtle grooves and smooth vocal sampling of ‘Game Face’ before moving into the deep riffs and stirring horn riffs of the title track ‘Funky Shizzle’. Next up, we step into the more hardstyle drum processing and minor piano chord breakdowns of ‘Delight’ before finishing up terrifically on the mash up masterclass known as ‘High Ground’, which forges together some classic soul and r&b samples over choppy drum loops and subtle basslines.”

The up-tempo funk jams continues across the Be Bumpin Freshand Ghetto Girlstrack before turning down the tempo and up the catchy vibes on the DAYoand Let’s Get It (Part 2).

“The Breakbeat Paradise Recordings catalogue is an impressive one, boasting some of the most sought after releases in and around the breakbeat scene. That catalogue has just been improved yet again by the ever-impressive sounds of Morlack, who returns with his brand new 5 track project. We kick off with the depthy funk melody sampling and gritty reeses of ‘Keep That Funk’ before drawing for the vocal fidget combos on ‘Be Bumpin Fresh’ and ‘Ghetto Girls’. Next up the more stripped back skippy arrangements of ‘DayO’, before finishing up the EP with ‘Lets Get It (part 2)’, which utilizes some fantastic patois vocal sampling with exhilarating horn riffs and smooth percussive patterns.”

- Captain Flatcap– Rat Race (feat. Isabel Drake)
Aww yea! This time with Kurnel MCand Isabel Drake at their side, Captain Flatcap are back with an all-new, all-encompasing, genre-busting EP – ‘Squelchedelic Sounds’. The flavours of swing-garage in ‘In My Blood’ and swing-funk in ‘Let’s Have Some Fun!’ make for two dirty DJ gems, guaranteed to get any crowd moving like puppets on strings! ‘Bong Hits From A Preacher Man’ is a creative and glitching collage of various classic soul, hip-hop, dub (and a certain smokeable something!) styles and samples! To finish, ‘Rat Race’ shows off the best of Isabel Drake’s smooth and soulful voice, accompanied by some deep and organic instrumentation and bass roars! As you’d expect the EP is tied cohesively together by parading a multitude of familiar Flatcap instruments, including the distinctive flute and trumpet parts.
“On this one Breakbeat paradise continue their seriously impressive 2017 run by employing the services of Captain Flatcap for a fantastic four track selection by the name of ‘Squelchedelic Sounds’. We kick off with the ruckus of a recording with ‘In My Blood’ alongside the infamous vocals of MC Kurnel. Next up we skip into the fidgetty funk of ‘Lets Have Some Fun’ which combines pan flutes and synths in and extended call and respond movement for a real turn up. Following this we have ‘Bong Hits From A Preacher Man’, which is a classic rework of you know what, featuring fantastic work from Isabel Drake. Isabel also features on the final track ‘Rat Race’ which takes a dubstep format with crunchy lead synths rolling out smooth melodies.”/Juno
