BBP-115: Jayl Funk feat Tarzan Bros – Shake It

Breakbeat Paradise Recordings is thrilled to welcome home one of pioneer producers who helped shape the label since the very beginning. German-based nu funk producer Jayl Funk has team up with funk trio/live act from the UK called Tarzan Bros and together they have created a true funk anthem with original vocals and grooves that sounds like it was done back in the glory days of soul and funk. And the goodness doesn’t stop here, because on the remix duties we have some of the very best funk producers from around the world to do their take on these original samples. All the way from the US we got the legendary soldiers of nu funk: All Good Funk Alliance, and from the UK a specialist in breaks and funk Mr. Skeewiff. Finally Yamaha (The Strike Boys, Wall of Sound) and Eletrico (Trio Eletrico, Stereo Deluxe Records) delivers the final remix for this EP.
Most of the people involved on this EP need no introduction as they are already well-established names in the scene but we are very excited to be introducing the Tarzan Bros crew, who originates from Greece but now lives in the UK and delivers original vocals, funky guitar riffs as well as Sax on these tunes.
There is not denying the funky grooves on this record that seamlessly joins in live jazzy saxophones with beats and breaks from the nu funk master Jayl Funk.

Jayl Funk has gone and done it again and cooked up another wonderful funk tune that we are very happy to be releasing as it takes us back to how it all got started here on BBP with his first release dating back to 2008.

  1. We’re kicking off the EP with a steady rocking beat that builds up nicely with a funky groove before dropping the catchy vocals that will last throughout the track. It takes no more than a few seconds to know that we are dealing with a producer who knows how to arrange music in such a way it gets your full attention all the way through the track. It’s all funk – it’s all original – it’s all Jayl Funk.
  2. On the second cut on the EP – All Good Funk Alliance puts us in school for a real electro boogie re-wamp of the Skake It tune. Frank and Rusty really manages to take out the essence of the original samples and make it their own by infusing their electro boogie around the vocals of the original tune. Electro funk at its finest. This is the second remix from AGFA on BBP since the first BadboE album Break The Funk from 2008.
  3. When Skeewiff is onboard you know its gonna be good – and this remix is no exception. Staying through to the feel of the original tune Skeewiff has slammed on a harder breakbeat and given more focus to the saxophone. This remix is an excellent alternative to the original and it will leave it very hard for anyone to stand still while this is playing.
  4. Finally Yamaha.Eletrico electrifies things as they introduce some harder synth basses build around the arrangement of the original tune. Well-put together remix that will make it fit into the more electric mixes our there.

At BBP we are very please to finally release another Jayl Funk EP and once again represent our funk roots and party fucking jams for early warm-up sets as well as peak-time bangers… We are here to keep the funk alive…

“Us Tarzan Bros! You Jayl Funk!” Time to Shake Itin a funky disco stylee as a certain German party breaks producer returns for the second time this month by getting cosy with a UK-based funky trio and an original track characterised by well-defined drums, insistent bass and rippling wah-guitar which curl themselves around pert vocals”
