BBP-106: BadboE – Ghetto Funk Testament EP
The time has come for BadboE to return to once again rock the floors across the planet with an explicit 4-track party breaks EP. The Ghetto Funk Testament is BadboE’s interpretation of the sound of ghetto funk that has been causing so much hype over the last few years. The 4 funky bangers on this double a-sided EP is taking it back to where it all started – as sample-heavy – upbeat party smashing music!
This is the first major release from BadboE since his successful second album Pump Up The Funk that dropped in 2012. Followed by an instrumental EP and a remix album, which very much celebrated the ghetto funk sound with tunes from the very best in the scene.
Making a full Ghetto Funk EP was a natural next step for one of the pioneer players in the funky breaks scene, who has been one of the go-to sources for all funky DJs for the last 10 years. BadboE’s approach on ghetto funk however is not taking itself too serious, but focuses on the good samples and heavy beats and just enough bass to keep it ghetto without loosing the soul of the music. All 4 cuts on the EP keeps up that happy funky vibes and the b-boy flavors that BadboE is known and loved for.
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is now one of the last labels to be releasing funky breaks/ghetto funk on vinyl and we are proud to continue to provide the very best this scene has to offer. This EP will remain exclusive for vinyl DJs for the next 6 month before dropping on digital.

A2. Feel Like Funkin’ You Up continues on with catchy chopped samples and rhymes from the finest sources of hiphop. It’s all spiced up with some crisp electro synth and ghetto bass lines and some straight up funky BadboE beats.
AA1. On the flip side BadboE returns to the big soul grooves and bouncy basslines as he seamlessly mashes up some smooth RnB vocals and turns it into a ghetto funk anthem.
AA2. BadboE ends off his Ghetto Funk testament by infusing some silky smooth disco vibes, which blends perfectly in a ghetto funk treatment. The art of sampling cannot be replaced with wobble bass and this is a perfect track to remind us of that.
