BBP-134: discObeta – Chinese Robots EP

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is back with a huge release to kick off the new year. US-based discObeta is dropping their first EP on BBP with 2 epic originals with remixes by heavyweight producers BadboE & Groove Mind.

The title tune Chinese Robots was first released last year on the compilation Big Fat Mama Beats, and because of the huge success the song has got from all over the world we decided to dedicate a full EP to the song. What started out as just small sample from a Chinese news clip turned into an infectious dancefloor anthem. On this EP the original jam is accompanied by a big glitchy remix by Italian super producer Groove Mind. This remix takes all the catchy vibes of the original and mixes it in a bit of electro funk/wobble basslines and big synth sounds.

The second part of the EP is taking it back to the oldskool with the street banger called No Doubt. The original Funk 2da Brain mix gives something for the break headz to get down to with some funky breaks and big basslines.

On the remix of No Doubt label head honcho and funky breaks legend BadboE is taking the things on ghetto funk trip of big punchy beats and wobble basslines.

All and all a package that should be sure to turn just about any dancefloor on fire. Look out for more dancefloor dynamite from the discObeta producer team soon here on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings!

BBP-106: BadboE – Ghetto Funk Testament EP

The time has come for BadboE to return to once again rock the floors across the planet with an explicit 4-track party breaks EP. The Ghetto Funk Testament is BadboE’s interpretation of the sound of ghetto funk that has been causing so much hype over the last few years. The 4 funky bangers on this double a-sided EP is taking it back to where it all started – as sample-heavy – upbeat party smashing music!

This is the first major release from BadboE since his successful second album Pump Up The Funk that dropped in 2012. Followed by an instrumental EP and a remix album, which very much celebrated the ghetto funk sound with tunes from the very best in the scene.

Making a full Ghetto Funk EP was a natural next step for one of the pioneer players in the funky breaks scene, who has been one of the go-to sources for all funky DJs for the last 10 years. BadboE’s approach on ghetto funk however is not taking itself too serious, but focuses on the good samples and heavy beats and just enough bass to keep it ghetto without loosing the soul of the music. All 4 cuts on the EP keeps up that happy funky vibes and the b-boy flavors that BadboE is known and loved for.

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is now one of the last labels to be releasing funky breaks/ghetto funk on vinyl and we are proud to continue to provide the very best this scene has to offer.  This EP will remain exclusive for vinyl DJs for the next 6 month before dropping on digital.

A1. Eye of the beholder sets things off with a big soul groove chopped and cut to perfection. Mixed with some funky street beats and some rocking ghetto funk bass lines. Finally some well-picked rap hooks from the golden era of hiphop takes it home with style.

A2. Feel Like Funkin’ You Up continues on with catchy chopped samples and rhymes from the finest sources of hiphop. It’s all spiced up with some crisp electro synth and ghetto bass lines and some straight up funky BadboE beats.

AA1. On the flip side BadboE returns to the big soul grooves and bouncy basslines as he seamlessly mashes up some smooth RnB vocals and turns it into a ghetto funk anthem.

AA2. BadboE ends off his Ghetto Funk testament by infusing some silky smooth disco vibes, which blends perfectly in a ghetto funk treatment. The art of sampling cannot be replaced with wobble bass and this is a perfect track to remind us of that.

This time around is all about the peak-time weapons and turntable elements that run thourgh-out this EP, which is what Tosses refers to as Scratch Breaks!

Scratch Break Vol. 1 dives into various areas of the funk music legacy – from straight 70s funk, to blues and even Swing. So something for everybody can be found on this release.

As always BBP is keeping you fueled with them funky beats…

Juno Download Review:

“When it comes to coming up trumps in the party-breaks scene Italy’s Tosses wins the er, toss, every time. Here though he takes a little bit of break from the norm, presenting four less recognisable jams rather than the instant -hits he usually provides. “Adderall” may be generally used to treat hyperactivity, but here it’s an utterly electro-boogie wild child. Elsewhere “Funky Fresh” riffs off classic 70s funk grooves, “To The River’ is a bluesy, gospel-breaks reverie, and “Work Song” closes with some baddass vintage swing-samples.”

Feedback from the scene:

Funkliners This is getting dropped bigtime on fri night! adderall is insane!
