We’re happy to welcome back Calagad 13 to the label. After releasing some bad ass vinyls on his label Fresh Kingdom, Calagad 13 has now returned to drop some oldskool b-boy breaks for us right here on BBP.
The Music Is My Life EP really takes us back to the oldskool with some 80s electro boogie as well as some funky soul chop up’s and some classic breakbeat material. This release is dedicated to the breakdancing scene, but it does have crossover appeal to the club scene, where these jams could be doing some damage on the dancefloors as well. As we are a sucker for the oldskool here at BBP, this EP had no problem fitting right into our catalog.
Look out for the catchy funky guitar licks on the Fonkey Callin’ tune, and the funky JB sounding Think Positive, the bad ass b-boy bumpers like The Great Battle and the Electro Boggie Nation and the soulful Flow tune and Slow (Bonus Breath). Not to forget the title tune Music Is My Life which is already a well-known classic tune in the b-boy breaks scene – but on this EP in a previously unreleased Human Beatbox Version. The EP comes with instrumental cuts of each tune for your mixing pleasure.
As always BBP is here to give you the original vibe and keeping the breaks and the funk alive for 2016 and beyond.
5-star review from Monkeyboxing.com:
“ 120 bpm plus and makes you want to leap around like a hare on hot coals? Gotta be b-boy breaks. Welcome to a world where if it doesn’t give you that itch, it ain’t worth scratching. There are no such shortcomings for The Fonkey Calling though – the amping opener to Calagad 13‘s triumphal return to BBP (their Music Is My Life EP) which carries enough firepower to see offany battle rivals. B-boy breaks don’t have to be over 120 bpms of course and actually the rest of the EP isn’t – but that ain’t mean it don’t rock the spot. Think Positive is a JB cut-up dance jam, The Great Battle pits warlike guitars and epic horns against a rolling breakbeat, Electric Boggie (surely ‘boogie’) Nation comes on like something off the soundtrack to Shogun Assassin, Flow makes like the breaks are a jazz thing and as a Brucie bonus you also get old classic (also the title track) in its human beatbox incarnation. Well I say that’s the Brucie bonus – you also get four of the cuts in instro form too, and if that’s not a Brucie bonus – I don’t know what is!”

We’re happy to announce that Morlack has returned once again to Breakbeat Paradise Recordings to drop his long awaited full-length album. The Hypersonic Freak project first landed at out desk a year ago, and the tracks have been selected and perfected ever since. The result is an inferno of beats, breaks & bass and freaky funky grooves, spread across 12 golden tracks dedicated to the dancefloors.
Morlack has been somewhat of a household name on BBP with over 6 digital EPs, 1 vinyl release and a remix album, so to dedicate the full-length album to the booming funk sounds of Morlack was the only natural thing for us to do.
The Hypersonic Freaks album takes us on a journey all the way from 80’s hip hop to 90’s RnB vocals into the present, all mixed with Morlack’s beats and bass and the freaky funky sounds of the 70’s psychedelic funk era. The album even leaves room for some quirky samples on tracks like Gimme Some Love and uptempo progressive grooves like on the Moment of Bang as well as classic Molack bangers such as the title tune: Hypersonic Freak.
In other words this album makes it really easy to be a DJ – just slam on any of these cuts and the party will be going in full effect. Freak funky good vibes from start to finish…
Morlack has some more big projects in the making that we unfortunately cannot revile yet, but we surely look forward to hearing what comes next from this funky beast of a producer.
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is keeping the funk alive as always…

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is very pound to welcome another household name in the Ghetto Funk scene: B-Side with the very first volume of his new series called Party Breaks. Everybody who knows about ghetto funk knows what B-Side stands for: Party rocking breaks, smashing wobble basslines and vocals chops that makes any electronic music producer jealous. That’s exactly what we are going to get on this 5 track Party Bangers EP of peak time bangers.
After dropping 2 legendary vinyls on the Ghetto Funk label and dropping tunes and remixes on numerous funky breaks label including a few remixes here on BBP – B-Side is at the top of his game and second to none when it comes to getting a party started.
The UK-based producer and remixer shows how to properly rock a party on all the tunes on this EP. From the big catchy grooves on the wobbly Again & Again to the delightful swing banger Gimme That Swing. Leaving us no time to catch our breath as he slams an epic revamp of a classic funk tune on Joy before lighting up some serious dancefloor dynamite on the ghetto rockin’ Last Night. Finally the EP is terminated with the up-tempo bass banger Let’s Do It. All bases are covered on this beast of an EP and the party time is guaranteed – or your money back!
All tunes are tried and tested and have already been receiving heavy rotation in the BBP Powerhour shows and by major DJs in the scene.
Another banging EP from your one-stop-shop for everything you need in funky beats and breaks…
