Booty Fruit – Cherry Bombs Vol.1

Cherry Bombs Vol.1

http://www.junodownload.com/products/badboe-roast-beatz-cherry-bombs-volume-1/2213190-02/?scref=sc

The Booty Fruit Record label has rapidly become a name synonymous with supplying upfront party funk nuggets that get dance floors rocking and heads a nodding. With their latest release Cherry Bombs Volume 1 we are yet again treated to some instant club classics, with recognizable samples a plenty, fused with some serious production skills from the likes of Badboe, Roast Beatz, Waggles, El Bomba and Hidden Riddim that make for a well rounded release that sat at the number 1 spot in the Juno Download Breakbeat charts.

Roast Beatz takes Grand Puba, Biggie Smalls and Thievery Corporation on a smooth and sexy down-tempo trip, constructing the tune This Is Not A Love Song which is perfect for those early funk warmer sets. El Bomba and Hidden Riddim keep the tempo low but take the vibe up high for their track On A Mission as they combine a seriously tasty breakbeat with an even more delectable bass line with the result being a sure fire dance floor burner. Waggles tune has the upbeat tempo covered and is appropriately titled Mash Up The Fun which is exactly what he’s done, with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa and the Beastie boys getting a massive fun(ked) up samba work over. The absolute highlight of this release for me though has to be Badboes sublime jam Playin Yourself in which he delivers the best use of Ini Kamozes Hot Stepper I’ve ever heard (and I’ve heard more than my fair share), melded superbly with Jeru The Damaja, some slick beat work and the juiciest disco bass line your likely to hear, creating a slick vibe that’s guaranteed to get those booties shaking.

Booty Fruit has gained a reputation for releasing high quality, funked up and club friendly tunes and with this first volume of the Cherry Bomb series supplying an abundant crop of the freshest, plumpest and tastiest produce to keep your aural taste buds satisfied, you’ll find it hard to resist getting your hands on some of this ripe and juicy booty fruit flavor.

Ghetto Funk DJ and producer Father Funk has today released his long-awaited debut album ‘Heavy Rotation’ on his favourite day of the year – 420 day! Not only is it his first full record but it is also the first release on his brand new label ‘Funk Therapy’. The new album is available now in all major digital stores across 270 countries.

After signing with legendary agency and former label Finger Lickin’, Father Funk quickly became one of the biggest names in Breakbeat and Ghetto Funk. Fresh off the back of two Canada tours earlier this year and the 1st anniversary of his own successful Bristol based night ‘Church of Love’, the father has cemented himself as one of the freshest tastemakers in the UK right now.
Taking huge inspiration from the disco and funk sounds of the 70’s and 80’s he has been writing music for over 10 years having released 5 EP’s and numerous singles across Sunday Best, Ghetto Funk, Adapted Records and Scour Records to name a few. His back catalogue includes remixes for the likes of Dub Pistols and Fort Knox Five including many bootleg remixes that have also amassed huge numbers on Soundcloud.
This debut record is the first full release that is completely original and free from his best-known sampling work. It captures the energy of the funk and soul golden years whilst combining it with modern dance music and disco culture, not sticking to one particular genre. With over 3 years in the making the father has been able to collaborate with some of the freshest names in the UK on this project; including London rap duo Too Many T’s, Ghetto Funk legends WBBL and Slynk, Canadian rap group Illvis Freshly and neo-soul singer Hilary Beckett.
Speaking on the new release Will Williamson aka Father Funk said:

I think the album is a bit of a lost art these days, and as someone who still very much enjoys listening to them, I wanted to bring back this mentality of writing songs as a collective artwork, not just as floor fillers or money makers. ‘Heavy Rotation’ is not just for dance floors but for front rooms, backyards and long journeys. I hope you enjoy it is as much as I enjoyed making it.
