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…

New act in the scene is doing their debut 12″ vinyl here on BBP Recordings. Mako & The Hawk is bringin’ back the good ‘ol days of raw funk – sampleheavy party joints.
Remember a time when samples were king and production was fat? Allow Mako & The Hawk to take you back as Breakbeat Paradise Recordings proudly welcome the UK production duo to the label for a four-track EP of b-boy-friendly hip-hop bangers.
The pair have been building a reputation as producers since 2009, gaining numerous radio plays for their funk, soul, hip-hop and reggae remixes and edits on, among others, Craig Charles’ BBC Radio 6 Funk & Soul Show. They released a joint EP with Morlack on his Funk Blasters label last year, and recently set up their own Tour Of Booty label to release their T Bird & The Breaks remix. Now, finally, Mako & The Hawkdrop a massive vinyl debut on which their ear for old school production values is writ large – the Party Goin’ On EP where the party is most definitely at. Don’t sleep!
A1. Party Goin’ On
If there was a sequel to The Wiseguys’ 1998 hits Ooh La La and Start The Commotion – it would sound like this. True to its name, the first timeParty Goin On was played live it took the roof off – hands in the air, ladies dancing on tables, the whole nine yards.
A2. Hold On
One of the East Coast’s biggest old school latin rapper duos meet an original soul sister on this big horns-drenched slab of party hip-hop. What my deejay name? Mako & The Hawk!
B1. Free NWA!
Did someone say nineties revival? How about splicing both ends of the decade together to move the crowd? Free NWA! Melds Dre and Co.’s Snoop-featuring ’99 West Coast gangsta reunion to loops culled from the funkiest ‘baggy’ track of 1990. Add in some kick/snare leverage and consider the crowd moved.
B2. Lowrider (feat. Loopez)
When Mako heard Loopez’s Lost Tapes # 1 instrumental on his Free LP – there was no doubt it had to be sampled and matched with a big latin hip-hop vocal. Loopez co-signed immediately and sent over the stems. Hawk cut up the organ to evoke The Mohawks’ Champ and shortly after that a lesser-known acapella by the West Coast’s biggest latin hip-hop act was added. What emerged from the Mako & The Hawk studio chop shop was this, in all its boom-bap glory.
Feedback for the Party Goin’ On EP:
“Party Going On” is an ANTHEM!!!!! Please let me know when it is cool for it to be played on the show as it would suit perfectly! It is one of those tunes that within 5 seconds you are going fuck me that is HUGE!!!!!!

It rocks! What else you got hidden?
