Archive for the ‘Ghetto Funk’ Category
Greetings Breakers! After a brief sojurn to spend 7 months with baby B-Roll, I am back with a new column of hearty breakbeat, bass and Ghetto Funk goodness. I will be selecting and highlighting quality releases that any DJ and fan should have in their bag. Let’s get to it!
Mooqee – Clubthing
Bossman of seminal Nu/Ghettofunk label Bomb Strikes brings us something different with this “thing-themed” release. “Discothing” is a nice modern take on disco ideas, using some classic sounds, but with a chunky drop which brings it right into the modern age. Need to surprise a dancefloor? Use this. The second track “Pianothing” starts with a simple key melody, then slams into a wicked electro groove. Not sure really what genres these fit into, but both would be nice bridging tunes as you head towards the harder end of breakbeat from Ghettofunk… Great stuff.
Jurassik - Flame On EP
Jurassik is the promoter of the best breakbeat parties in London. Supatronix events, Hot Cakes, Elite Force Boat Party - if it’s breaks in London, you can guarantee he is the man behind the scenes, running tings! You can also catch him playing at the events, but also producing tasty bits and bobs here and there. In this I reckon his best release to date, he takes future jungle, garage, breaks and whips it all up into a wicked skankin sound. Deep bass, skipping drums and wicked ragga vocals. If you like the future jungle/140 or whatever we are calling it, you need this.
To get you in the mood for the EP, he has done a Hot Cakes EP Promo mix for the popular Lady Waks radio show. Listen below or download from Jurassik’s facebook.
Nick Thayer – Dominion EP
Finally this week, I have to give it up for the man that is Nick Thayer. Always pushing his sound and production forward, you never know quite what to expect, except that it will be big, and not like anything else! Is this glitch hop? Ghetto Funk? Does it matter? It kicks. This is a free download, but you can donate to support Nick on his website here. Keep doing the good work sir!
So Brisbane is set for one of the biggest Sunday sessions to remember tonight as both Askillz & Featurecast along with some of Brisbane finest DJ’s have joined forces with Zuri Nightclub, Jagermeister, Skullcandy and DJ Warehouse to help raise money for the Rome Torti Cancer Fund. All it will take is a $ note donation to gain access to what is sure to be an unforgettable night and with all money raised from the door going towards such a great cause, why wouldn’t you want to be apart of it.
Katch (Resin Dogs)
and the host with the most Paul Master.

What do you get when you cross The Mighty Boosh, Father Funk and Slamboree? This delightful bit of funked up whomp gravy thats what. Yummy!
For those not already aware, as well as djing and producing under my funked up Dastardly Kuts moniker, I also produce tunes with a good buddy of mine who, as well as being an all-round good bloke, is also a bonafide bass fiend and quality Ableton head who goes by the name of Aditup and together we produce under the guise Ad’N’Kuts (real original I know). We recently had an EP release thru Grits N Gravy records where we teamed up with San Fransisco MC/ producer Kidd Linus to drop a tune with some straight up ol school breaks flavour and with remixes covering a diverse range of genres from deep bass, ghetto funk and glitch hop from the studios of some of Australia’s best up and coming producers, I can honestly say it’s the release I am most proud of in my career to date. You can listen to and purchase it from Beatport right HERE.
Now as an added bonus we also have a free remix to give away from one of my all-time favourite aussie producers, DJ Axe, who’s version is a sublime booty breaks rump shaker that is sure to get your hips moving. Just head on over to the Grits N Gravy Facebook page, get liking and the download is all yours.
A little Mash-edit i made using Bobby C Sound TV’s dope Laser Funk remix of The Commodores Machine Gun combined with the always dance floor friendly Beastie Boys classic tune Hey Ladies. A perfect funked up party starter! Just head to my Facebook page HERE and like to get your free download.
B-Side and Sammy Senior said they “stumbled” into Pluto’s Bazaar in Shangri-la at Glastonbury festival at 4am to play a back to back set to finish proceedings and wether their stumbling was from tiredness from the early start time or from the consumption of to many festive brews, their form was definitely not affected as they have delivered a stomping mix featuring many of their own productions mixed with some absolute gems from artists like Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz, Featurecast, Opiuo, Slynk, Stickybuds, Dutty Moonshine and heaps more. A wicked way to finish a festival in anyones book.

Happy summer everyone! The suns out in the UK so it’s time to come through with another selection of fresh swinging beats.
The big news here is that I’ve moved into a new house – Swing Towers 2 – which is perfect in every respect except it’s going to take 30 days for the truly rubbish broadband provider to bother to get it turned on. That means this Roundup may be a bit briefer than usual since it’s not easy doing this all through a mobile!
Dimaa mixing up the glitch and swing. Download from here.
Bouncy house with a bit of a swing style bump from Tomahawk:
Bass heavy remix of Bart & Baker:
All sorts of flavours mixing together on this from Cheshire. Quality freebie.
More considered and laid back this. Nice old style swing from Leeds After Hours Quintet:
