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.
This month funky freebee comes from the awesome Ewan Hoozami who has cooked up this sweet little joint called Borat’s Theme.
“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’.”
