Breakbeat Paradise Recordings are on the themed tip again, this time getting their reggae vibes on. First came the “Swing that Funk” EP, and now comes “Breakin the Riddim”!! An EP of pure funky riddim feelings, BBP have hauled both veterans and new in to create their take on how they feel breaks and reggae should be put together…
DJ Maars kicks the EP off with his own unique style of riddim and this man is a master of the reggae/hip Hop mash, and with this, there’s no disappointment. Basschimp follows up with a banger of a tune called Under Mi Sensi, which has received the head-nod treatment, with big drums and bass to tear the dancefloor up. BBP’s resident funkster Leygo, brings the heavy vibes with his badboy of a track. Tight beats, accompanied by deep rolling bass and funky horns bring this already sweet tune to life.
No breaks compilation is complete without a bit of wobble, and who else better to provide it, than Cockney Nutjob. The man has skills, creating simple, yet great tunes that are almost impossible not to enjoy!!
Finally up-and-comer Fredy High brings the happy vibes. A real reggae riddim, with nice breaks, and a sweet vocal, make this tune a secret of the record box.
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is pleased to finally welcome to the label a true veteran in the funky breaks scene: Mr PulpFusion with the huge 12” vinyl release Funk Never Sleeps – now available on digital. Straight out of Switzerland, PulpFusion has been producing funky jams since the early days of nu funk, and this time around he has brought a true dream team of remixers for this enormous 7-track EP. On the flip side he has teamed up with another skilled funk producer Morris Chestnuts from Bristol as well as Producer and Rapper Imagine This from New Zealand to help complete this funk fest of a release.
PulpFusion has countless albums and EPs under his belt and done remixes for Ed Royal and Mr Bird & Tal M Klein as well as running the successful label Big Balls Records. He has a unique sound that has strong roots in electric psychedelic funk mixed with beats and breaks.
The remix duties are in good hand with all experts within their fields starting with DJ Maars from down under, who is true master in skanky reggae mash-ups – Mr. Rory Hoy who is skillfully keeping alive the sounds of the big beat era and finally a true BBP all-star Jayl Funk who specializes in anything funky for the dancefloor.
Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is proud to start off another year with another extremely funky release to keep pushin’ the sounds of funky beats and breaks even further.
A. PulpFusion kicks off the EP with his straight up funky original of The Beat Inside My Soul. Some easy going breakbeats and some groovy basslines is all it takes for PulpFusion to create a in instant nu funk classic. All brought to the next level with a beautiful hook on the female vocals on this track.
B. If you didn’t know DJ Maars you would be surprised about this guy being able to create a skanky reggae jam out of just about any tune. His remix of The Beat Inside My Soul is a perfect example of him doing just that, by taking the essence of the vocals of the original transferring it all the way to Jamaica for some reggae grooves. All perfectly mashed up with some hip hop rhymes to go with it.
C. To end off the A side we got Rory Hoy giving The Beat Inside My Soul his signature big beat treatment. Toughening up the arrangement and adding some booming bass lines, allows Rory Hoy to turn the sweet vocals of the original into a true big beat anthem.
D. The Funk surely does not sleep as it continues on a get even funkier on the flip side. Funk Never Sleeps sees raw funk flavors from the magic team PulpFusion & Morris Chestnut & the legendary sax player Lorenzo Medici as they cook up a funky joint that will get just about any party started.
E. Everybody’s favorite nu funk producers Jayl Funk is on the spot to turn Funk Never Sleeps into his own as he slams on some latin style funky beats and rearrange the element of the original to perfection. Funk headz can go straight for this one.
F. The funk fest goes on – on the third cut on the b side, which sees PulpFusion teaming up with producer and vocalist Imagine This on their Beat The Clock. The electrified backing track of this jam matches perfectly with the progressive vocals by Imagine This.
G. Finally last but certainly not least we got PulpFusion and Morris Chestnut back together for the final jam on the record: Feelin’ The Blues. The funk is mashed up sweetly with the classic Johnny Cash country song as if they would have always belonged together. At the end of this jam you will all agree with us that FUNK NEVER SLEEPS
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!
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…
