“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.” /Juno Download
For this highly anticipated second volume of ‘Breakin The Riddim’, Breakbeat Paradise have got an awesome tracklisting and roster together to showcase the fusion of dub and funk into breakbeat compositions. For us the immediate highlights have to be the the reggae infused design of ‘Meditation’ from Leygo, the smooth patois vocal presence and from Richard Smiths on ‘Fire Sound’ from Illgorhythms and of course the crunchy drum design and writhing bass tones on Pecoe’s ‘Boom’. Overall this is a great compilation, showcasing a vast array of styles without diverting from the common theme of the project.
It’s time to take it back to the roots and the sound that Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is known and loved for. There is no better to represent the funky party-rocking vibes of the breaks scene than australian mash-up mastermind Pecoe, who has been called upon to drop a 4-track EP to provide you the party vibes for the holiday season.
This month freebee from the Power Hour show is delivered by the awesome Pecoe who’s cooked up a rather fine edit of the classic Earth Wind & Fire track Shinning Star.
This is a preview of what to expect later on this year when Pecoe will be dropping a 4-track artist EP of funky bangers for your funky b-boys and girls out there…
