Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back with another big vinyl release from the amazing producer due Lack Jemmon,which consists of DJ Clairvo and Kid Panel, who are both well-established producers, DJs and label owners on their own. Together they are an explosive cocktail of big funky grooves, filthy glitcy basslines and banging beats! After little over a year of being vinyl exclusive – this 4-track beast is finally ready to be unleashed to the digital audience!
Lack Jemmon has been around for a couple of years and quickly signed up with the successful ghetto funk label Scour Records where they have dropped a few tunes and remixes. When the boys reached out to us and said they had 4 bangers they wanted to drop on vinyl we didn’t hesitate to say Hell Yeah!
The self-titled EP showcases their style of heavy breaks and funky basslines perfectly across the 4 bangers that are tried and tested for complete dancefloor destruction.
A1. The EP kicks off with a big remix on the catchy Olly’s Heartbeat, which has been infused with someheavy duty basslines and some rocking electronic funk beats. Pure fire!
A2. The party continues on the second cut where the boys are really getting serious on another catchy riff and some party rhymes to go with the steady beats and glichy basslines. Let’s not forget the beautiful hook from the original 90s dance anthem to complete this perfect joint – Who’s Serious!
B1. Just as we though this couldn’t get any better Lack Jemmon cooked up another banger for the b-side called The Party Riddim. As the name suggest it harvests some big reggae grooves and vocals mixed with some party rocking beats.
B2. To showcase a different side to the duo Would You?! is a funky house arrangement with some smooth disco grooves and a party rocking rap acapella. A perfect way to end this double A-sided wax of bangers!
You can always count on BBP for your doze of party rocking beats – and for keeping the vinyl alive…

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.”

- Morlack – Lets Get It (Part 2)
It wouldn’t be a proper BBPyear with dropping at least one new EP from Morlack! This time around Morlackhas brought some real big funk bangers and catchy grooves to Keep That Funk going on the dancefloors this summer.
The EP kicks off with a tip of the hat to one of the great funk legends – brought into the new millennium with Morlack’ssignature ghetto funk treatment. Title tune Keep That Funktakes one of the funkiest grooves ever created and wraps it into an inferno of beats and bass.
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).
This is the second time we have the pleasure of dropping some Morlackhotness after his feature on this year Bad Ass Funk Vol. 2vinyl.
Keeping in chilled and funky – all summer long – right here on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings.
“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– In My Blood (feat. Kurnel MC)
- Captain Flatcap– Let’s Have Some Fun!
- Captain Flatcap– Bong Hits From A Preacher Man (feat. Isabel Drake)
- 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

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back with a huge release to kick off the new year. US-based discObeta is dropping their first EP on BBP with 2 epic originals with remixes by heavyweight producers BadboE & Groove Mind.
The title tune Chinese Robots was first released last year on the compilation Big Fat Mama Beats, and because of the huge success the song has got from all over the world we decided to dedicate a full EP to the song. What started out as just small sample from a Chinese news clip turned into an infectious dancefloor anthem. On this EP the original jam is accompanied by a big glitchy remix by Italian super producer Groove Mind. This remix takes all the catchy vibes of the original and mixes it in a bit of electro funk/wobble basslines and big synth sounds.
The second part of the EP is taking it back to the oldskool with the street banger called No Doubt. The original Funk 2da Brain mix gives something for the break headz to get down to with some funky breaks and big basslines.
On the remix of No Doubt label head honcho and funky breaks legend BadboE is taking the things on ghetto funk trip of big punchy beats and wobble bassline
All and all a package that should be sure to turn just about any dancefloor on fire. Look out for more dancefloor dynamite from the discObeta producer team soon here on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings!
More music from discObeta here:
“If you caught Discobeta‘s alpha-plus tune Chinese Robots on BBP’s Big Fat Mama Breaks compilation last year, you might have wondered why a tune this obviously all-conquering didn’t dominate a release centred around itself. Apparently BBP wondered the same thing, so prepare yourself for the march of Chinese Robots EP featuring a title track containing a positiveearworm of a sample from some music off a Japanese newsclip…”

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.
“It seems like it’s been ages since a solo original Badboe release – let me see now, that would have been his Pump Up The Funk LP in…2012. But that was three years ago! Good lord! It really hasbeen ages since a solo original Badboe release. Fear not though, this scene legend is back with a vengeance putting the fun back into ghetto funk in a testament that is tantamount to a dancefloorclarion call with…Ghetto Funk Testament. Feel Boe flow on Eye Of The Beholder as he breaks the body of a beat with a vocal snippet from Treach forged into a hook which is juxtaposed with another hook forged from some late seventies/ early eighties soul flavour. Feel Like Funkin You Up, will also make you feel like dancing (not to mention feel the beat y’all) something you’ll be likely to Refuse To Quit when you hear the orchestral ghetto soul of track three and insistent synths-plus-cheeky ‘guest’ vocals from Brooklyn’s one hit rap wonder Uptown on the closer. Dope on plastic! Actually, as the PR is wont to point out, BBP is one of the last labels still dropping this kind of stuff on wax. Not only that but this release will be a vinyl exclusive for six months – so if you want these beats you know you need to get physical.
