Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is pleased to welcome back the Laptop Funkers for another set of high-octane fun & funky breakbeat. This 8-track album is a symphony of samples and breaks designed for you to Feel The Goodness. Following up on the successful vinyl release Ready to Rumble from 2013 the Laptop Funkers is back in better shape than ever!
Almost instantly after Ready to Rumble was sold out and a repress was demanded , tunes started coming in for what quickly turned out to be a full album release. Now after tweaking and perfecting these jams for over 2 years we are ready to present you with Feel The Goodness – a 12” vinyl filled to the limited with the finest beats and breaks this scene has to offer. Now available on digital!
The Laptop Funkers ( the alias used by producer and sound designer Nuno Soczka for this breaks project ) is an elusive underground act that only emerges when there are some fresh choons to showcase. The influences are not hard to discover and Laptop Funkers has no problem in taking us back to the glory days of Big Beat with tunes that would make even Fatboy Slim and The Chemical Brothers feel envious!
Some of the biggest grooves you’ve heard for a while can be found throughout this ruthless funky album : from the soul-gospel flow of the Feel The Goodness tune to the bouncy brass works on Ain´t Nobody Like We , the ghetto drops on Incredible Funk and the contagious funky groove of Soul Power ; from the pump up energy on I Can Keep It Going to the laid back soulful vibes on Where The Funkers At , the b-boy banger attitude of Got The Party Rockin and the chemical psychedelics of The Temple.
8 golden joints of epic sampling inferno that’ll be sure to keep you entertained from start to finish. Comes in a full-color front-and-back cover 12” vinyl package with custom illustrations by the talented Cristiano Suarez.
As so many times before BBP is here to provide the b-boys and girls with some proper breaks to keep the party going…
“If you’re looking for a funky time look no further than this fantastic new LP from Laptop Funkers entitled ‘Feel The Goodness’. Our highlights right from the off have to include ‘Soul Power’ which is an amalgamation of tight breakbeat rhythms and powerful bass lines, topped with shiny melodies and vocal snippets. Other notable features are the punchy drum arrangements and scratch melodies of ‘I Can Keep It Going’, the electro-swing synthesis of ‘Incredible Funk’ and of course the disco infused melodies of the title track ‘Feel The Goodness’.”

B3. Turntill & Merlin feat. Doppia Erre & Sky 189 – Break A Day (Quincy Jointz Remix)
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings has teamed up with The Chosen Few Records to proudly presents the latest escapade of TURNTILL & MERLIN: “BREAK A DAY“. This tune is dedicated to all the b-boys and other funkateers worldwide that love the drumsound and the funk. The MCs on the song are DOPPIA ERRE from Apulia, Italy and SKY 189 from Capetown, South Africa.
Both are true Hip Hop heads that love the art of breaking! In the hook you hear the sweet, catchy voices of Stella Baraldo and Dominique Bouvier. A real powerful b-boy anthem and club joint alike, which is interpreted in five additional versions on a six track 12” vinyl release.
Guests on the A-Side are DJ KID STRETCH (Greece), FUNKY BOOGIE BROTHERS (Belarus) who is giving the tune a new flow in the oldskool b-boy direction. On the flip side we have invited some of the very best from the Ghetto-Funk scene to give the tunes an injection of electro vibes and big basslines. For this job we called upon the dream team DUBRA X ARTEO (Latvia) and ghetto funk superstar B-SIDE (United Kingdom) who are always armed to the teeth with big beats and electro basslines. Last but not least we sent for a true veteran and pioneer in the Nu Funk scene QUINCY JOINTZ (Germany) to do his thing on the electro side of this vinyl release.
The funky beats and breaks has once again brought people together from all over the world to collaborate on this big release that not only tips the hat to the b-boy community but also pushes the limit to the new eras of funk music. Something we share the vision for and feel strongly about on both Breakbeat Paradise Recordings and at The Chosen Few Records.

- City Love
- Pull Up My Roots
- Stand By It’s On
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings has once again teamed up with Mr. Bristow to deliver yet another groovy EP of high-energy old-skool funky breaks.
On the City Love EP, Mr. Bristow takes it back to the roots of funk and soul and throws some golden era hip hop MC-ing into the mix, for maximum party flavour.
We’ve been hearing more old-skool beats and breaks from Mr. Bristow lately – both as a solo artist and as part of the successful duo Mako & Mr. Bristow. The pair has had a number of successful 7-inch vinyl releases this year (with support from Craig Charles on BBC 6 Music), as well as their Supersoul Rock N Roll EP that was released last year here on BBP.
The City Love EP is a special delivery for all those b-boys out there that like their beats broken and rhymes sharp, over a funky groove. All four cuts stay true to that recipe, but at the same time work perfectly in any modern mid-tempo party rocking dj set.
From the easy rockin’ grooves of the title tune City Love, to the funky disco breakin’ Pull Up My Roots – to the hyped flowin’ Stand By It’s On and the heavy breakin’ Lunar-Tune.
Already getting support on the Deep Fried Funk Show on NSB Radio and in the latest BadboE mixtape.
Keeping it real with the beats and breaks as usual on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings!

- 1988 feat Koaste (The Allergies Remix)
- Pour Me feat Mysdiggi (Shaka Loves You Remix)
- The Ultimate feat Manic and Kristy Kuwolski (El Bomba Remix)
- Heavy Ear Play feat Action Bronson, Jehst Brotherman and Stig of the dump (DJ Maars Remix)
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is thrilled to welcome back Roast Beatz to follow up on his successful album release Luxury Boom Bap from 2015. BBP and Roast Beatz has hand-picked some of the very best in the scene to make a Remix EP that are worthy of the Luxury Boom Bap brand.
The Allergies get things started with their retro funk twist on the 1988 jam featuring Koaste. The Allergies (Dj Moneyshot & Reckabeat) is known to reshape funky vintage sounds for the modern dancefloor and that’s exactly what they do on this remix!
Shake Loves You takes on the awesome Pour Me feat. Mysdiggi and effortless turns it into their own funky disco style. The tune has undergone a huge transformation but the result is no less than: pure dancefloor dynamite.
El Bomba was a perfect match for this project as he never disappoints on the steady rockin’ b-boy bangers. The Ultimate feat. Manic and Kristy Kuwolski receives the signature Bomba treatment and yep you guessed it – it’s a banger!
Last but certainly not least we called upon one of our favorite producers and reggae riddim expects DJ Maars from down under. One of the pearls of the album Heavy Ear Play featuring the mighty Action Bronson, Jehst Brotherman and Stig of the dump – fits perfectly on a gentle riddim by DJ Maars.
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings giving you the soundtrack of the summer 2016 and working hard on keeping you equipt with the freshing and funkies beats in the breaks scene…

Never before has it been done as well as this with Tom Showtime getting on board and tailor-making this 4-track EP of banging feel good jams around our genres beloved 105 BPM, aka The Butter Zone.

We’re happy to welcome back Calagad 13 to the label. After releasing some bad ass vinyls on his label Fresh Kingdom, Calagad 13 has now returned to drop some oldskool b-boy breaks for us right here on BBP.
The Music Is My Life EP really takes us back to the oldskool with some 80s electro boogie as well as some funky soul chop up’s and some classic breakbeat material. This release is dedicated to the breakdancing scene, but it does have crossover appeal to the club scene, where these jams could be doing some damage on the dancefloors as well. As we are a sucker for the oldskool here at BBP, this EP had no problem fitting right into our catalog.
Look out for the catchy funky guitar licks on the Fonkey Callin’ tune, and the funky JB sounding Think Positive, the bad ass b-boy bumpers like The Great Battle and the Electro Boggie Nation and the soulful Flow tune and Slow (Bonus Breath). Not to forget the title tune Music Is My Life which is already a well-known classic tune in the b-boy breaks scene – but on this EP in a previously unreleased Human Beatbox Version. The EP comes with instrumental cuts of each tune for your mixing pleasure.
As always BBP is here to give you the original vibe and keeping the breaks and the funk alive for 2016 and beyond.
5-star review from Monkeyboxing.com:
“ 120 bpm plus and makes you want to leap around like a hare on hot coals? Gotta be b-boy breaks. Welcome to a world where if it doesn’t give you that itch, it ain’t worth scratching. There are no such shortcomings for The Fonkey Calling though – the amping opener to Calagad 13‘s triumphal return to BBP (their Music Is My Life EP) which carries enough firepower to see offany battle rivals. B-boy breaks don’t have to be over 120 bpms of course and actually the rest of the EP isn’t – but that ain’t mean it don’t rock the spot. Think Positive is a JB cut-up dance jam, The Great Battle pits warlike guitars and epic horns against a rolling breakbeat, Electric Boggie (surely ‘boogie’) Nation comes on like something off the soundtrack to Shogun Assassin, Flow makes like the breaks are a jazz thing and as a Brucie bonus you also get old classic (also the title track) in its human beatbox incarnation. Well I say that’s the Brucie bonus – you also get four of the cuts in instro form too, and if that’s not a Brucie bonus – I don’t know what is!”
