Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back to mark the 10th year of being in the ghetto rockin; funky breaks business. To celebrate that we’ve decided to hit you hard with a 7-track vinyl release to represent the very best of what the label has to offer. 7 of the very best producers in the funky breaks scene have joined forces on this ruthless funky bomb of an EP! After selling out all vinyl and getting support from major djs including features on the Craig Charles Funk and Soul show this release is available on digital format.
With the Badass Funk EP the BBP All-Star team is taking it back to the timeless sound of the oldskool that the label has kept on rockin’ since they first started in 2006. Since then the label has navigated through related genres like Nu Funk and Ghetto Funk without loosing track of the base core. Every since the first release: Sound of Invasion by BadboE the label has kept a strong grip on the funk, the breaks and the street vibes of the oldskool.
To kick things off we brought back 2 of the very best producers in the game The Breakbeat Junkie & DJP, who’s been responsible of some of the classic BBP tunes like Freak Hop Part 3 and Represent The Style. Here they are back in better shape than ever to do their thing on the Go Off jam.
To follow things up we call for a true ghetto funk phenomenon: DJ B-Side, who just started to drop party bombs for us last year. But B-Side has been a household name in the ghetto funk scene for years and has released several legendary EPs for the Ghetto Funk label.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any funkier we brought in DJ Maars from down under to tease us with the skanky funk jam: Work That Funk.
It wouldn’t be much of a BBP anniversary release without a tune from label owner and funk breaks veteran: BadboE. All striped down to the core BadboE’s cooked up a funked up jam that oozes oldskool funk from start to finish.
Moving on with more skillful mashup business from one of the scene’s favorite DJ and producer: Roast Beatz. This is the first release from Roast Beatz on BBP since his epic album release: Luxury Boom Bap that dropped last year.
The Boom Bap continues on the track from BBP residents Mako & Mr Bristow, who team up for some more of their addictive throwback funk business.
Last but certainly not least a true expect of the oldskool: Morongroover is ending things big with his Good ‘ol Days joint.
Time goes by but it has become evident that the funk stays – and BBP is right here to make sure it will. Stay tuned for another 10 years of funk, beats and breaks…

Its been 3 years since the release of the last paradise breaks volume – and boy do we have something to show you! At the same time, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the label, and is there a better way to celebrate that but to release 15 golden tracks as hot as these?
It’s been an action packed couple of years with 26 EPs, 6 album & 7 vinyls being released in this period, which made it very difficult to pick the very best tune to go on this 4th edition of the Paradise Breaks series.
The result is a ghetto rockin’, funky breakin’, oldskool blasting compilation with all-star artists like: Wbbl, BadboE, Roast Beatz, Morlack, Timothy Wisdom, Tom Drummond, DJ Rudd, The Captain and many more. Never before has so many ghetto funk legends been collected on one compilation.
For all of you who are new to the scene, all you have to do is pick up this compilation and you are up to date with what’s been going over for the last 3 years. And for all our beloved fans and followers, whom we are sure will be delighted to have all these classic tunes collected in one place.
This time it’s not all just previous released tunes, as we have a fresh new 2016 version of WBBL’s remix of BadboE’s Ghetto Funkalicious to kick off the compilation. This tune has already been turning a lot of heads in the scene and sets the stage for the other ghetto funk tunes such as, DJ Rudd’s Like Jello, J-Sound’s On and On, Tom Drummond’s Thick Shake, Arteo’s Nobody Else ∫and Kool Hertz’s Whatta Joint remixed by BadboE. For the funk-loving b-boy rockers we got tunes like Timothy Wisdom’s Bad Mother, Morlack’s Chinchilla, Laptop Funkers’ Soul Feel Free, Mako & The Hawk’s Party Going On & Breakbeat Junkie vs DJP’s Represent the Style. Original cuts includes BadboE’s Hit It Mastro remixed by Jpod, ElectroGorilla’s Say My Name and Roast Beatz’ Boombox featuring Dr Syntax. Before ending things with the drum n bass anthm by PhonoMatt & Tommy Boy called 5 O Clock remixed by The Captain.
Another living proof that the funky breaks and ghetto beats is still very much alive – and by now you know where to go to get the very best of it…right here on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings!
“Although the cover of this latest instalment in the Paradise Breaks series echoes the famously trippy sleeves of ’70s prog rockers like Yes, the music couldn’t be more modern. Actually that said, many of the productions on here do plunder the ’70s for inspiration but they choose funk over wizard’s capes and that. Highlights include the mighty “Bad Mother” which combines raw soul divas vocals, wah-wah guitars and thumping break beats, J-Sounds’ tight and groovy break-funk jam “On And On” and the super catchy shuffle-pop gem “Nobody Else” by Arteo. A totally mixed bag and all the better for it.”
