Review: The Atlanta based B Boy Breaks series continues with another drop of serious cuts to get beat jugglers, sample diggers and just straight up funk lovers going hog wild over the lashings of drum breaks. First up on the A side there's some widescreen, expansive beatdowns taking place with the massive "Show Me The Funk Breaks" - a fela esque sax screaching ,hammond organ swirling classic you already know from the many times it's been lifted for its treasured sonic ingredients. "Harder Breaks" on the flip is another monumental jam, presented here in instrumental form most recently used for the theme tune of a UK TV show . The evergreen groove is just crying out for someone with the skills to drop some serious turntablism all over this one.

  1. Turn It Up Loud! (feat Craig G) (3:11)
  2. Blow Your Mind (3:17)
Review: Over recent months and years, Bristol-based DJ/producer Boca 45 has served up more donuts than an average branch of Krispy Kreme. To continue the metaphor, we'd say that his latest - which features guest rapper Craig G on side A - is one of those 'premium' ones with fancy glazing and a gooey centre. "Turn It Up Loud" certainly delivers in instant hit of energy and a sugar-rush, with Craig G turning hype man over a notably crunchy, early Beastie Boys inspired beat from Boca 45. Flipside "Blow Your Mind" delivers similarly sweaty and crunchy drums, with rock riffs and breakbeat lifts being joined by tight scratches and all manner of dusty-fingered vocal samples. Just like a real donut, it will leave you bloated but happy.

  1. Boca 45 - "It's All There" (feat Swaby)
  2. Boca 45 & The Bryan Munich All Stars - "Hot Wheels The Chase"
Review: For the latest coloured vinyl missive on his 2020 Donuts label, veteran DJ/producer Scott Hendy AKA Boca 45 has enlisted the help of some of his many music industry mates. Kelvin Swaby, lead singer of The Heavy, lends his voice to A-side "It's All There", a low-slung chunk of flash-fried funk-rock rich in Prince-style guitar licks, jaunty bass and loose-limbed drum breaks. Over on side B, the Bristolian crate digger is joined by The Bryan Munich Allstars - an outfit whose members include Beak and Portishead man Geoff Barrow - for a fiery cover of Badder Than Evil's much-sampled 1973 funk bomb "Hot Wheels". Boca 45's new version rocks hard, with the ensemble cast laying down a scintillating funk-rock revision that will delight all those who loves the '73 original.

  1. Jorun Bombay & The Espressolites - "Peas In An Alternate Universe" (4:22)
  2. Jorun Bombay - "Mister Magic" (A Jorun Bombay edit - alternate version) (3:19)
Review: When it comes to delivering party-starting funk and soul 45s, Jorun Bombay has an impressive track record. His latest seven-inch is rather fine, too. On the A-side he joins forces with a trio of musicians to offer up "Peas In An Alternate Universe": a riff on JBs classic "Pass The Peas" that layers extended organ and trombone solos over a groove dominated by crunchy breakbeats and virtuoso bass guitar. Flipside "Mister Magic" is a deeper, warmer and more laidback affair, with tidy electric piano parts, toe-tapping drums, occasional string-laden disco samples and warm bass being joined by a simply wonderful new vibraphone solo.

Review: If smooth, synth-powered soul is your bag, we'd suggest checking out this EP from French future R&B star Jean Janin AKA Cezaire. It begins with a sumptuous slice of '80s soul revivalism featuring guests Phabo and Jordan Lee (the really rather good "You Came In Time") and ends with a bubbly chunk of deep electro-soul ("Je Plane", featuring Crenoka). In between, Janin treats us to some sparse, drowsy and distant lo-fi soul ("Beyonce"), a spacey slown jam featuring immaculate lead vocals by Ayelle (the synth-bass-propelled goodness of "The Answer"), and an all-to-short tribute to talkbox-sporting Los Angeles synth-funk jams of the 1980s ("The West Coast").

That is where he eventually start this own journey and with elements of Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson added in, he now lands with a fully formed, heart swelling soul sound. It comes on Defected after label A&R Simon Dunmore hunted Davie down having heard him singing on an advert for Wild Turkey bourbon in the cinema. A big and bubbly dance song with lively instrumentation and warm bass, it will get any party started.

  2. Eric B Is On The Cut (3:42)
Review: Mr Bongo's Eric B & Rakim reissue series continues via a fresh pressing of the hard-to-find U.S seven-inch single release of the NYC duo's second single, 1987 gem "I Ain't No Joke". Rakim's distinctive vocals naturally take centre stage on side A, albeit over a sparse-but-strong Eric B beat high on the kind of crunchy drums, headline-grabbing scratches and sampled horn motifs that marked out the duo's best collaborative work. As with the original American single, the B-side boasts "Eric B On The Cut", a quality cut-and-paste affair in the style of Grandmaster Flash's "On The Wheels Of Steel" that's little more than a highly impressive DJ routine.

Review: There can be few hip-hop heads who don't know Eric B & Rakim's "I Know You Got Soul", a Bobby Byrd and Funkadelic-sampling beast from 1987 that remains one of rap's most recognizable moments. The rap from Rakim is iconic, but it's the Eric B beat behind - all loose-but-heavy, snare-heavy beats, recognizable guitar licks and chorus-style blasts of Bobby Byrd vocals- that makes the track such a club-ready hip-hop classic. Here it gets the reissue treatment on "45" courtesy of Mr Bongo, with the duo's brilliant vocal version being joined on the flip by the overlooked, delay-laden "Dub Mix". For those who covet alternate versions of classic cuts, this instrumental revision is a must.

Review: Nearly five years after the first seven-inch appeared, the seventh volume in J Rocc's on-point "Funky President Edits" series lands. As with the tracks contained on previous volumes, the showcased cuts have long been staples in his DJ sets and should be considered "tried and tested bombs". First up on side A is "Flight #2", a shuffling, ear-pleasing affair that combines jangling elements from a semi-acoustic Afro-Soul cut with borrowed chorus vocals and languid, laidback percussion. "Greddy Foot", on the other hand, is a low-slung funk bomb -a slightly dubbed-out revision of a James Brown original with additional vocal samples from other Godfather of Soul workouts.

  1. Too Complex (4:43)

Review: Last year Chopped Herring Records offered up a fine album of vintage demos from Massachusetts MC La Da Head Toucha, a rapper who never quite hit the heights commercially many expected he would. That was not for the want of trying though, and his double A-side 1997 debut remains a much-loved underground hip-hop classic. Here it gets the reissue treatment, appearing on seven-inch for the very first time. A-side "Too Complex" is superb, with La Da Head Toucha delivering Q-Tip style flows over a sparkling, golden-era beat that makes great use of Don Blackman samples. Flipside "It's Your Life" is a deeper affair built around a slightly stripped-back beat which is nevertheless a bona-fide head-nodder.

Review: Dondi Records latest celebration of underground U.S hip-hop history sees them offer up a new edition of Brooklyn artist Mister Voodoo's most celebrated cut, 1996's "Lyrical Tactics". Produced by regular beat-making collaborator Henri Charlemagne, the A-side "Rap Mix" is a near perfect fusion of boom-bap beats, dusty jazz samples, on-point scratches and a confident lead vocal from Mister Voodoo that remains one of his best lyrical flows. The flipside instrumental mix is tasty, too, with Charlemagne scratching in key snippets of Mister Voodoo's vocal ("using lyrical tactics...tactics...lyrical tactics") over his own rock-solid beat.

Review: The latest must-check missive in CB Records' "Change The Beat" series, which was inspired by the legendary San Francisco party of the same name, comes courtesy of label regular Mophono and collaborators Tenshun and The Heavy Twelves. The former lends a hand on A-side "Goons", a formidably fuzzy and lo-fi fusion of chaotic, loose-limbed drums, throbbing bass and intergalactic noises. The Heavy Twelves replace Tenshun in the studio on flipside "Spy vs Spy". Operating at a lower tempo with dirtier bass, grime style stabs and dub noises aplenty, it's arguably even stronger than the A-side.

  3. Wanawake (Loefah remix) (5:28)
Review: It's easy to see why Loefah snapped up this single for Swamp 81. For starters, bass-heavy beat-maker Sumgii has already contributed a number of killer missives to the label's digital catalogue, and "Wanawake" contains one of his fattest beats to date - a sparse, warped, sub-heavy affair that sits somewhere between regular hip-hop and 21st century grime. Then there's the fine bi-lingual English/Swahili rap that sits atop it from Nah Eeto, a rising star of Kenya's blossoming underground. Her style and delivery is distinctive and on-point, working in perfect harmony with Sumgii's killer backing track. Loefah naturally supplies the obligatory remix, placing Eeto's vocal atop a crunchy bed of hip-house style James Brown breaks and stirring synthesizer chords.

Review: First featured on Nas' peerless 1994 album "Illmatic" - a classic that really should be in your collection - "The World Is Yours" is a classic Pete Rock production that has never appeared on a seven-inch single before. Mr Bongo has decided to set the record straight, pairing the album version, which includes some of Nas' most potent lyrics, delivered in fine style as you'd expect, with an instrumental take that showcases Pete Rock's brilliant beat and tight, on-point scratches. It's a deliciously baggy beat all told, with sampled pianos and subtle jazz lifts combining cannily to create a suitably laidback, golden-era groove.

Review: Rawkus Records regular R.A The Rugged Man has received plenty of plaudits for his recent album "All My Heroes Are Dead", which marked his return to the full-length format after a gap of seven years. Here he delivers a limited-edition "45" featuring one of the album's most potent cuts, Slug and Eamon hook-up "Golden Oldies". Featuring a blend of crunchy beats, sweet '70s soul samples, loved-up chorus vocals and some tight, on-point raps from the man himself, the track lives up to the nostalgic promise of its title. Over on the flip there's a first vinyl airing for the previously cassette-only 2013 cut "It's Gone", a stuttering slab of 21st century boom-bap produced by former DMC World Champ DJ Noize.

Review: Classic Brooklyn hip-hop alert! First released on 12" way back in 1995, Smif-N-Wessun's "Sound Bwoy Bureill" is a golden-era treat. It sees Tek and Steele - then fresh faces on the scene rather than the grizzled veterans they are today - spout forth over a killer beat produced by Evil Dee and Mr Walt. That beat is sparse but heavy, with crunchy kicks and snares being accompanied by little more than reggae vocal samples, moody chords, occasional electric guitar notes and a suitably deep bassline. You can hear it loud and clear on the flipside instrumental version, though it also provides a near perfect bed for the duo to showcase their flows on the superior A-side vocal mix.

This is the fourth "45" pressing in an ongoing series that also includes similarly must-have golden-era hip-hop gems as "Bucktown" and "Sound Bwoy Bureill". "Wontime" was first released in 1995 and sees the NYC duo spit typical thoughtful, on-point rhymes over a beat crafted from little more than the James Brown "Funky President" drum break, some deep and drowsy chords and occasional snatches of Spoonie G's early hip-hop classic "Spoonie Rap". That deep, head-nodding beat can be heard in full on the accompanying flipside instrumental mix.

On the flip you'll find a more experimental, sharply edited "remix medley" - in effect a series of short takes with barely time to breathe in between, which together form a coherent suite - from Max I Million and Ion Zaar.

Review: These are buoyant times for leftfield hip hop rooted in experimentation and lo-fi sonics, and here comes Denzel Curry returning with a serious lesson for all newcomers. Hailing from Carol City, Florida, Curry has been dropping pure fire for more than 10 years, but his current form is pushing him even further into the global rap conscious. Kenny Beats is taking no prisoners on the production, while Curry's righteous anger gets processed, re-pitched and mashed up and still it lands every blow. Moving through skits, mad samples and heavyweight tracks, this is everything a visionary hip hop LP should be.

  9. No Remorse (5:36)
Review: Since its initial cassette and CD-R release way back in 2006, Da Crime Click's sole album (so far) "Million Wayz To Murda" has become something of a must-have amongst collectors of "gangsta" hip-hop. Happily, the album has finally been pressed to wax, with a stripped-back track listing that focuses on the six-piece act's full vocal numbers. It is an undeniably lo-fi and underground affair, with multiple members of the group dropping thug rap and gangsta style rhymes with skittish, stripped-back drum machine beats and cheerily cheap synthesizer sounds. The whole thing sounds like it was recorded in someone's garage, but that's no bad thing; after all, if the beats and rhymes are good - which they undoubtedly are - then polished production is not required.

Review: Recognize Ali and Verbal Kent are both hugely successful underground hip-hop MCs in their own right, so seeing them join forces as Dueling Experts for this debut album on Mello Music Group is more than a little exciting. It's rather good too, thanks to an attractive mix of solid boom-bap backing tracks (carefully crafted by fast-rising producer Lord Beatjitzu) and fine conscious raps from Ali and Kent. At times they trade verses, while at others they join forces or deliver solo spots that expertly showcase their individual rap styles. The result is an album that has the feel of a future underground hip-hop classic; certainly, it's a set that the heads won't want to miss.
