- Mined & Forrest – There It Is (Original Mix)
- Mined & Forrest – Funk Toxic
- Mined & Forrest feat. Joker – Drugs
- Mined & Forrest – There It Is (Jayl Funk Remix)
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back to drop another debut EP from the German producer duo Mined & Forrest consisting of Forrest Funk & Mined from Obba Select. They are both well-established names on their own with a large group of followers – known for their edits, mashups and funky DJ sets.
Inspired by classic funk, modern bass design and hiphop sampling they teamed up to bring their musical ideas together. Spending lots of time in the studio turning knobs and hitting keys, they now have a bunch of funky tunes ready to hit the dancefloors out there.
The EP kicks off with the groovy and catching title tune There It Is, which perfectly showcases their take on the ghetto funk sound. A steady beat with some clever hip hop samples and a great deal of musicality including a big middle passage of beautiful atmospheric sounds.
On the next cut the duo takes us a little further back to the oldskool on the Funk Toxic banger. Toxic funky bass on a boom bap beat mixed with their chopped up hip hop vocal samples.
Things are about to get serious on the 3rd jam on the EP which features Joker on the bass heavy Drugs tune. Heavy beats and big basslines is in center on this bad boy jam.
The title tune There It Is is finally getting the upmost funky party treatment from BBP’s very own Jayl Funk on the last track on the EP. A steady block rocking beat and twist up on the vocals is all it takes for Jayl Funk to make this his very own as he brings this EP home.

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings have pulled together some top and up-and-coming producers to provide a slightly different approach to Swing. Bringing beats, bass and swing together to bring you an ecclectric mix of funky swingyness …
DJ B-Side is the man of the moment, with regular hits both on major releases, and on the freebies. This guy has a talent to produce tracks that are sure to get the crowd going, and this is no different. Sampling Missy Elliott, with some great swing and breaky beat, B-Side delivers as expected!!!
F-Block has graced the release with a head nodding, booty shaking piece of swingy DnB. This track has pure swing rhythm, heavy bass and beats that can only make you dance. He takes a very different approach with the elements of swing, producing a top tune for lovers of many different genres.
Established in the swing scene, and churning out the bangers, The Swing Bot has delivered yet again!!! A heavy bass driven track, with everything you could wish for from a swing track, but with a twist… Be sure to get this into any set for all those who love the heavy rumbling bass!!!
New kid on the block, Kibosh is a australian producer, with an ability to produce high quality!!! Thius track goes more on the Glitch funk, but with strong influences from Jazz and the like. A tune for bith listening and dancing, it will fit in most sets of all genres.
Leygo is a name often associated with reggae, breaks and dnb. But when we asked him to take a chance on swing, he jumped at it, producing a rolling swing thumper with some deep bass for those sub enthusiasts!!
Last up is a little known producer from Copenhagen, Denmark, going but the name of Blitzkrieger. This guy released a little swingy/balkanesque freebie earlier in the year, so we had to get the guy on board. Heavily influenced by hip hop, you can definitely hear it, in the bashy beats, and rolling bass!!!

“This year already they’ve done old (the retro breaks of the Badass Funk EP), they’ve done new (the grinding, glitchy breaks Big Fat Mama Ep) now it’s time to swing with BBP on the Swing That Funk EP. Yes, Badboe invites along a cast of thousands – well, six – to try their hand at funking up the swing. Which means that BBP is broadly essaying an electro-swing EP on the world…”

“Its been 3 years since the release of the last paradise breaks volume – and boy do we have something to show you! At the same time, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the label, and is there a better way to celebrate that but to release 15 golden tracks as hot as these?
It’s been an action packed couple of years with 26 EPs, 6 album & 7 vinyls being released in this period, which made it very difficult to pick the very best tune to go on this 4th edition of the Paradise Breaks series.
The result is a ghetto rockin’, funky breakin’, oldskool blasting compilation with all-star artists like: Wbbl, BadboE, Roast Beatz, Morlack, Timothy Wisdom, Tom Drummond, DJ Rudd, The Captain and many more. Never before has so many ghetto funk legends been collected on one compilation.
For all of you who are new to the scene, all you have to do is pick up this compilation and you are up to date with what’s been going over for the last 3 years. And for all our beloved fans and followers, whom we are sure will be delighted to have all these classic tunes collected in one place.”
