Breakbeat Paradise Recordings have pulled together some top and up-and-coming producers to provide a slightly different approach to Swing. Bringing beats, bass and swing together to bring you an ecclectric mix of funky swingyness …
DJ B-Side is the man of the moment, with regular hits both on major releases, and on the freebies. This guy has a talent to produce tracks that are sure to get the crowd going, and this is no different. Sampling Missy Elliott, with some great swing and breaky beat, B-Side delivers as expected!!!
F-Block has graced the release with a head nodding, booty shaking piece of swingy DnB. This track has pure swing rhythm, heavy bass and beats that can only make you dance. He takes a very different approach with the elements of swing, producing a top tune for lovers of many different genres.
Established in the swing scene, and churning out the bangers, The Swing Bot has delivered yet again!!! A heavy bass driven track, with everything you could wish for from a swing track, but with a twist… Be sure to get this into any set for all those who love the heavy rumbling bass!!!
New kid on the block, Kibosh is a australian producer, with an ability to produce high quality!!! Thius track goes more on the Glitch funk, but with strong influences from Jazz and the like. A tune for bith listening and dancing, it will fit in most sets of all genres.
Leygo is a name often associated with reggae, breaks and dnb. But when we asked him to take a chance on swing, he jumped at it, producing a rolling swing thumper with some deep bass for those sub enthusiasts!!
Last up is a little known producer from Copenhagen, Denmark, going but the name of Blitzkrieger. This guy released a little swingy/balkanesque freebie earlier in the year, so we had to get the guy on board. Heavily influenced by hip hop, you can definitely hear it, in the bashy beats, and rolling bass!!!

“This year already they’ve done old (the retro breaks of the Badass Funk EP), they’ve done new (the grinding, glitchy breaks Big Fat Mama Ep) now it’s time to swing with BBP on the Swing That Funk EP. Yes, Badboe invites along a cast of thousands – well, six – to try their hand at funking up the swing. Which means that BBP is broadly essaying an electro-swing EP on the world…”
