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.

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is very pound to welcome back one of the Ghetto Funk scenes finest producers: B-Side for the second installment of his Party Bangers series. This time he’s teamed up with another heavyweighter – BBP’s very own BadboE to line up 4 big tunes designed for maximum dancefloor destruction!
Party Bangers Vol. 2 takes us on a musical journey through different areas of electronic funk: from the peak time ghetto funk bangers – over Reggae grooves, electro swing to end up with a disco anthem. The musicality plays a big role on these tunes and its easy to recognize both producers signature through-out this EP.
The EP kicks off with a big electric funk bangers Funk Me Again, which takes elements from a classic funk jam and mixes it with some J5 party rap in a progressive ghetto funk arrangement. Rewind it Back takes on some catchy reggae summer grooves and slams on some big beats and wobble basslines. Do You Wanna Ride flips it around with some electro swing vibes to makes sure the party keeps on riding. Last but not least its time for B-Side & BadboE to Get Busy on an extended disco anthem. 7 mins of groovy disco goodness.
For those of you who trying to steer clear of the mash-ups or wants to do you own mixes, all 4 tunes comes in instrumental versions.
Another banging EP from your one-stop-shop for everything you need in funky beats and breaks…

Review from Juno Download:
“Roll up, roll up! Break Beat Paradise present a clash of the party breaks titans, DJ B-Side Vs DJ BadboE. Both acts have released party fodder separately before, now though they’re together in this mean soundclash (actually BadboE is the label owner). This time there are four tracks all in the trademark party breaks vein beginning with the electro-funk-rap jam “Funk Me Again”, before Usher gets a go-go sing along makeover on “Rewind It Back”. Next “Do You Wanna Ride” sees vintage big band samples blend with hip-house and finally “Get Busy” ends with a Groove Armada/lush disco fusion. Boom!”

- Groove Mind – Inner Fire
- Groove Mind – Bring The Funk Back
- Groove Mind & Frankee More – Music Is The Answer
- Groove Mind – The Dreamers of the Dreams
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back to release the Inner Fire together with a new talented artist: Groove Mind on this 4-track bangin’ ghetto funk EP.
Groove Mind has gone back into the archive of golden soul and funk samples and pick out a few all-time favorite clips and embedded it into his world of big beats and basslines – and the result is as the title indicates: pure fire!
The glitchy pieces seems to be playing a vital role on these track, but yet still they manage to stay very groovy and funky. On Music Is the Answer – Groove Mind has brought along a follow funky bass producer Fankee More to further boost the funky vibes.
Overall a very interesting and well-produced debut solo EP from a new ghetto funk producer, that we surely will be hearing a lot more from in the time to come.
As to many time before… you heard it first – right here on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings!
“Groove Mind’s ragga-glitch signature is getting stronger with every release. Swaggering up to BBP with four party-fused bangers, it’s yet another level of indelibility. “Inner Fire” busses up a Ragga Twins sample over a cavalcade of bass textures, “Bring The Funk Back” is so sleazy it could make Troutman blush while “Music Is The Answer” fuses some very well-known samples into a track that celebrates everything that’s brought us here today. Looking for a little more pep? Jump straight onto the party D&B cut “The Dreamers Of The Dreams” and get skanking!”
