Pete Graham’s ‘Thrown Together EP’ features a couple of killer bumpy bass house cuts in ‘He Said’ (with Bumpy Fool) and ‘Pop Like This (with Donkie Punch) but the real piece de resistance on this EP is the Jungle Breaks collab with Donkie Punch called ‘Frank Castle’. ‘Frank Castle’ will go down well with both breaks and house fans alike with loads of quirky samples, a nod to Jaydee ‘Plastic Dreams’ and some rather obese basslines going on!!!

Junki Munki recently guested on Kidson Show-Ridge Radio, if you don’t know about Junki Munki or have never heard his brilliant shows (with hilarious Frank Bruno impersonations!) on Nu-Rave Radio back in the late 00’s you’re in for a real treat here. Junki Munki was one of the top artists in the Rave Breaks scene, a scene that at its peak was championed by the likes of Slipmatt & Billy Daniel Bunter.
Kidson chats with Junki Munki while listening to some of his productions on various labels and some personal oldskool hardcore faves too, it’s a great show and a nice insight into a scene we would love to see return in a big way!!!

To coincide with his latest release, Lucas has put this amazing oldskool style breaks track up for a free download. We’ve been listening to this tune all day here at the blog. If you love Pirate Jams & Freestylers- you’ll love this warm and uplifting track with a 91/92′ era tempo, big strings and loved up vibes!!!
A true Techno pioneer, Orlando Voorn joins the Snail Juice imprint with remixes of his own track ‘I Know’
Orlando Voorn’s ‘I Know’ gets remixes from Bit Float & Lucien Foort plus two of his own reworkings. The Techno mix is Techno in it’s purest emotion driven form. The UK mix switches the 4×4 beats for breaks in homage to the 90s UK rave scene. Bit Float steers ‘I Know’ into Deep House music waters with a rich array of keys and straight to the soul synths. Lucien Foort lays down a remix to drop right in the middle of your set for maximum fever pitch!!! I know you’re gonna dig this!!!
Alt-A’s new Breaks stomper ‘Encore’ is out now on VIM with a classy Wavewhore Remix!!!
‘Encore’ is what you will be exclaiming when the bass hits you on Alt-A’s bright n’ bangin new tune!!! Wavewhore turns in a stunning remix that many have rightfully described as asuperb new construct of the original Nu Skool Breaks sound of the noughties. Crisp sound design, crunchy finger lickin’ basslines and clubbin’ beats/breaks make this a remix the DJs will be spinning for millennia!!!
Made To Move takes it back to the oldskool with a House music twist!!! We first heard this artist on Spira Music. Since then he has featured on some of the scene’s top labels like the two Simmas (Black & Red), Hustler Trax & Nurvous. Some of his latest releases are here for review below, check them out!!!
Made To Move- Hardcore Feel EP
Both ‘Hardcore Days’ and ‘Feel The Beat’ conjure up the early 90s rave vibe perfectly with excitement laced synths and rolling beats a la Low Steppa, Dennis Quin & co
Made To Move- You Had It
We really love this one, for the keen spotters out there, this is a homage to Bass Ballistics ‘Blow Out’, the kick drums get swapped for some rolling breaks and if this doesn’t make your skin go all goosebumpy then quickly check your pulse!!!
Made To Move- Classic But More EP
The title track takes a teeny weeny snippet of Baby D ‘Let Me Be Your Fantasy’ and blends it in the percolator for a rushy garage/breaks hybrid that practically forces you to hit replay. ‘Radi Call’ features a really cool vocal sample and hits the dubstep tempo for a slammin’ breaks banger of a tune!!!
