Morning breakers! Couple of belting releases for you this week, and in a new addition to this column – I flick back through my breaks vinyl to highlight a tune from what I consider to be the golden age of breaks. Not to take anything away from the releases these days, but I seem to hear a lot of older mixes cropping up again online, and the tunes still do the business. Nothing wrong with looking back and reflecting how we got to where we are today!
Gotta be careful about not putting too much Finger Lickin records stuff in here, but it’s hard. Looking at my collection, I have loads and loads of their records, white labels too. Part of what makes these records so awesome for me is the great artwork by Jem Panufnik. Serious talent. If I had my way, my flat would have every one of his covers framed up on the walls. Not sure what Mrs. B-Roll would think about that! Both tracks are absolute corkers, Foxy Moron is a serious acid-tinged banger, but you they both still hold up real well.
Buy it here.
While we are on the subject of Jem Panufnik, here is his tasty release from his musical alter-ego – Jem Stone. Its a tip top, Hip Hop /Ghetto Funk extravaganza with a slick vocal from Mouthmaster Murph & MC Goldseal. Definitely one for the funked up party floors. With remixes by the one and only GF master Featurecast , you need this in your box. Digital exclusive, available from Juno here.

Morlack – Loose Booty
French funk blaster Morlack brings a 14-track album of Nu/Ghetto/Glitch and swing style funk. Nice mix of styles and vocals, an album you could actually listen to, not just for the dancefloors!
Janette Slack & Some DJ Feat. Tuhin Chisti – Kut Me Sum
Renowned breaks DJ Janette Slack recently upped sticks and shifted to the other side of the world. London’s loss is Hong Kong’s gain though, and here we have her first EP release from that side of the pond. Solid package here. Original track is a nice rising breaker, but there are some super remixes too. Funkanomics turn in a trap-esque re-work, while B-Side brings it to the Ghetto Funk side of things. The Chamber version though, is the one that sent shivers down my spine. Deep rolling bassline, total winner.
Lots to like here, can’t wait for the next release! Buy now from Juno.
