Synthetic Substitution
Synthetic Substitution (7") (1 per customer)
Cat: BAB 001RP. Rel: 13 Jul 20
Funk
  1. Melvin Bliss - "Syntheic Substitution" (extended Break edit) (3:50)
  2. Sweet Daddy Floyd - "I Just Can't Help Myself" (extended Break edit) (4:17)
Review: This tasty, DJ-friendly 7" single boasts two extended, break-heavy reworks of obscure and in-demand soul workouts. On the A-side you'll find a tasty extension of Melvin Bliss's superb, piano-heavy 1983 cut "Synthetic Substitution". While Bliss's brilliant original - all heartfelt vocals, jaunty keys and warm bass - is largely kept in tact, the mystery re-editor naturally makes more of the opening breakbeat, which was sampled several times during hip-hop's "golden era". Flip for a similarly tasty rearrangement of Sweet Daddy Floyd's 1978 Blaxploitation style disco-funk shuffler "I Just Can't Help Myself", a cut rich in rolling breaks, densely layered percussion, punchy orchestration and "Shaft"-style guitar licks.

Funk
  1. Lafayette Afro Rock Band - "Hihache" (extended Breaks Special edition version) (4:23)
  2. Gaz - "Sing Sing" (extended Breaks Special edition version) (4:27)
Review: More sneaky 45 action from the Breaks & Beats crew, a shadowy organization whose tried-and-tested re-edits offer DJ-friendly extensions of popular break-digging favourites (many of which were sampled on classic hip-hop cuts). Their latest seven-inch excursion begins with a tidy revision of Lafayette Afro-Rock Band's brilliant "Hihache", a low-slung favourite rich in lolloping, head nodding drum breaks, jazzy bass, flanged funk guitars and fuzzy horn motifs. The new version is deferential towards its source material, extending breaks here and there whilst leaving much of the tune in tact. One of the most doubled-up drum breaks in hip-hop history takes pride of place on side B, where Gaz's Salsoul released wiggler "Sing Sing" gets the re-edit treatment.

Funk
  1. Brother Soul - "Cookies" (extended Breaks Special edition) (3:33)
  2. Ramsey Lewis - "Back In The USSR" (extended Breaks Special edition) (3:25)
Review: Get ready for more extended breaks fun with this new edit from the popular Breaks & Beats bootleg 45 series. Unknown cut and paste masters are behind these two special editions, the first of which tackles Brother Soul's 'Cookies' and flips it into a driving funk tune with big, rousing horns and subtle funk riffs. It's a tasteful banger to pump any party and on the flip comes the more subtle and jazz tinged Ramsey Lewis tune 'Back In The USSR.' Noodling keys leave wispy arias in their wake as the bristling rhythm section powers along below.

Funk
  1. James Brown - "Funky Drummer" (extended Breaks Special edition) (4:48)
  2. Jimmy Smith - "Root Down" (extended Breaks Special edition) (3:40)
Review: By now we should all know what to expect from the Breaks & Beats "Extended Breaks Special Edition" reworks, namely stretched-out versions of classic funk, soul and disco cuts that give extra priority to DJ-friendly drum breaks. This particular edition offers up revisions of two colossal cuts. On the A-side the un-named scalpel fiends get to work on James Brown's "Funky Drummer", stretching out the Godfather of Soul's impeccable original to a touch under five minutes. Over on the flip you'll find a tidy version of Jimmy Smith classic "Root Down" that starts and ends with mixable loops of the track's insatiable groove.

Funk
  1. Vaughn Mason - "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll" (4:23)
  2. Bad Bascomb - "Black Grass" (3:16)
Review: More from the matter-or-fact Breaks & Beats seven-inch series, which offers up DJ-friendly "slight edits" of funk, soul and disco classics built around extending the drum breaks in sometimes hard-to-mix classic cuts. The tenth volume in the series kicks off with a mix-friendly tweak of Vaughan Mason's roller-boogie anthem "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll" that expertly stretches out the previously all-too-short instrumental intro. Over on side B, Bad Bascomb's odd but brilliant country-funk hoedown "Black Grass" gets a similar treatment, with Breaks & Beats' un-named re-editor sneakily extending sweaty drum breaks here and there throughout the track. Given the quality of those breaks, this is a very good thing indeed.

Funk
  1. Billy Squier - "The Big Beat" (extended Breaks Special edition) (2:54)
  2. Le Pamplemousse - "Gimmie What You Got" (extended Breaks Special edition) (4:12)
Review: We've said this before, but there's something brilliantly simple about the Beats & Breaks label's "Extended Breaks" series of seven-inch re-edits. There's no superfluous fluff or needless rearrangement, just solid and matter-or-fact extensions of key drum breaks to both aid mixing and light up dancefloors. For proof, check the mysterious re-editors' take on Billy Squier's 1980 heavy rock workout "The Big Beat", which prioritizes the track's fat, bottom-heavy drums and the singer's impassioned vocal yelps while stripping out most of the gnarled guitar riffs. If you need a bit of a breather from the heavy dancefloor pressure, the crew's subtle revision of Le Pamplemousse's drowsy, synth-laden deep disco shuffler "Gimme What You Got" - a string-laden slice of sun-kissed sweetness - should do the trick.

Funk
  1. The Winstons - "Amen, Brother" (extended Breaks Special edition) (3:32)
  2. The Chosen Few - "Candy I'm So Doggone Mixed Up" (extended Breaks Special edition) (3:25)
Review: The Beats & Breaks 7" series was founded to satisfy the desires of DJs, mainly by serving up re-edits that put some of the world's most recognizable drum breaks front and centre. This edition kicks off with a rearrangement of the Winstons' "Amen Brother", whose drum break not only became a staple of U.S hip-hop in the 1980s, but also the foundation of jungle and later drum and bass. This edit wisely gives plenty of air time to the infamous drum break, dropping into it at frequent intervals in between bouts of punchy, horn-heavy funk. Flip to the B-side for a tastefully chopped and rearranged version of The Chosen Few's super-sweet 1976 soul cut "Candy I'm So Doggone Mixed Up".
