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…”

- 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!”

Seven deadly fresh productions of hard jackin’ Bass and funk slammin Breaks and Ghetto Beats have landed… A hot saucy mama for your collection. Now seeing the break of dawn, from your number one vinyl and digital pusher, Breakbeat Paradise Recordings. Back again pumping a glitchy and funky Big Fat Mama Beats experience.
Monkeyboxing review: Having done the ‘old’ (with the retro 90s-ish sound of the Badass Funk EP from earlier in the year), Breakbeat Paradise Recordings now do the ‘new’ assembling a seven-artist strong squad consisting of Discobeta, Mr Rich & Caretaker, Crashgroove, Wiccatron, Funky Boogie Brothers, Rory Hoy and PulpFusion to take things musically bang-up-to-date with the Big Fat Mama Beats EP – all expectations (as raised by the title and the artwork) to the contrary. It warps, it grinds, it glitches and in directions you might not even have considered. Step forward Funky Boogie Brothers whose Crunch may well have you contemplating the background music on your next visit to your local curry emporium in a new light. DiscoBeta kick things off with a stomping, skanking Chinese Robots ‘re-up’, Mr Rich & Caretaker get glitchy on a soul tip, Crashgroove is back once again like a renegade master with a grinder, Wiccatron lulls you into a sense that you’re in classic boom-bap land before suddenly turning the FX up to Skrillex on the warp-o-meter. Oh yes and of course Rory Hoy gets to Rok Tha Party his reliable manner while Pulpfusion closes proceedings with the acid-drenched ‘almost’ title-track – Big Fat Mama which goes full Heavenly Social (so a little bit retro after all) with it’s Hard Hop Heathen and Josh Wink-isms. – monkeyboxing.com

The long awaited first ep from Funkliners is finally here on Breakbeat Paradise recordings. These guys have hit the scene hard, already supporting the likes of Krafty Kuts, DC Breaks, Bart & Bakers, as well as a host of other DJ slots. They’re hitting the funky road running, so watch out for future releases, and enjoy their debut single, including remixes from Rory Hoy and Wiccatron featuring Aliens in Denmark (A.i.D).
Formed in May of 2014, Funkliners are a Yorkshire (UK) duo made up of “Snuff” and “Just Jess”. Having been friends, and been on the same line up more than a few times over the previous few years, they were booked to play at Illuminaughty in Manchester as a b2b set. On the night they played alongside “The Chicken Brothers” and “The Itchy and Skratchy djs” to a full house, and have never looked back. Since that moment “Funkliners” were born! Having played at numerous events individually they quickly began racking the gigs up as Funkliners. Snuff comes from a background of djing and producing heavy dubstep and dnb, whilst just jess played more the electro and funky house side. This can often make for a jeckyll and hyde style set with one playing the funkier, hip hoppy side, and one playing the glitchier, heavier side! In the past year these guys have supported A.Skills, DJ Clumsy, Kotch, Bear Thrylls, Father Funk and loads more coming this year. They have also just been given the honour of being UK representatives of “Sideshow Kuts” for the United Kingdom. They run events worldwide and Funkliners will be throwing host of parties over 2016 with loads of special guests so keep peeled here on BBP for updates…
A bit of info about the remixers: Wiccatron aka Kim Sørensen is the Danish co-founder, producer and DJ of Breakbeat Paradise Recordings, best known for his love of breaks and funk and all things in between. He mixes up a great fusion of new Bass N Breaks N Funk. Aliens in Denmark (AiD) is based in Odense Denmark, but originally from England, the Aliens in Denmark are DJ One and En-Jay-Tea. DJ One scratches his way onto Wiccatrons remix of Funkliners “Funk Like This”, accompanying the down-tempo funkiness of this 102 bpm head-bopper.
Rory Hoy is a Multi- Award Winning Music Producer/Film Maker and DJ. He was the Winner of the Yorkshire Young Achiever of the Year Award 2012 hosted by ITV, in the Arts Category, which he won alongside actor Mikey North who plays Gary Windass in Coronation St. He has 5 critically acclaimed albums under his belt. This time he brings us his banging 80’s inspired funky breaks remix, with original scratching as well to get the party going.
Another banging EP from your one-stop-shop for everything you need in funky beats and breaks…
“Funkliners are all about easy, good times, which is a good thing because that’s exactly what the Breakbeat Paradise label is all about too. Here they’ve cooked up two sizzlers that will get even the most difficult dancefloor moving – “Mumble” which is all perky, cut up funk samples and tough beats, and the title track, which keeps those big beats but holds a more stripped back groove. There are also two remixes: Wiccatron’s scratchy rejig and Rory Hoy’s bright and shiny 4/4 pop-house jam.”
