About:

I loosely centre my music around Funk, Hip-hop, Disco and Soul. I love basslines. And drums.

Running Particle Zoo Recordings
Writing & performing:
House/bass as STEGA
Wonky electronic hip-hop as Sirklz
Bassweight remixes of cult classics as one half of Box Rocket

Funk Against Fascism - Out Nov 4th

 
'Funk Against Fascism' is a charity compilation raising money for 'Love Music, Hate Racism'.

Artists from Birmingham to Brazil have come together to create an eclectic album representing the broad spectrum of breakbeat sounds, from chilled out funky hip-hop to fierce, bassline-driven acid.

Every penny of the artists' and label's royalties will go directly to the charity, which supports anti-racist and anti-fascist activity and runs campaigns urging people to vote against fascist candidates in elections.

No other charity celebrates cultural differences like 'Love Music, Hate Racism' and no other music genre revels in sonic diversity more than the breaks scene. It's a match made in heaven.

Tracklist:

1. Fort Knox Five - Funk 4 Peace ft. Mustafa Akbar & Shunda K (Deekline & Ed Solo Remix)
2. tOtALcULt - One World
3. Super Combo Funk - I Don't Need No Dope
4. BadboE - Stop, What's That Sound?
5. DJ Soo - Feelin' Sanctified
6. Ewan Hoozami - Boob Job
7. Geriba - Dancin´ Feet ft. Quincy Jointz
8. Timothy Wisdom - Check The Living Dub
9. Johnny Pluse - A Breakdown Anthem ft. MC Kawasi & Dan Man
10. PulpFusion - Rocking Kids
11. Zamali - Funky Kasbah (No Flip Flop Mix)
12. Hero No. 7 - Never Ever Had A Hero

New JiggyJoe EP

Get on my man JiggyJoe's badass new ep out now on Breakbeat Paradise

Funk From The trunk at Boomtown 2011!

Check out this awesome video of Funk From The Trunk's mini-venue at Boomtown Fair this year... pure carnage all weekend!
We had a 'house party' theme going on, which is why you can see wallpaper and stuff everywhere... let me tell you it takes no small amount of ingenuity to wallpaper a tent!
Anyway, enough about decor, check out the vibes!


We'll be back at a festival near you (and a bigger, badder, better venue at Boomtown) in 2012!

Massive free downloads from A-Skillz, Pretty Lights, The Funk Hunters and Pimpsoul

Some of these are newer than others, but as I'm playing catch up after a long summer, here they all are together... and I guarantee these badboys rock!

Pimpsoul has done a big remix of that track off the Heineken advert

Pretty lights is back with an EXCEPTIONAL track called 'I know The truth'. He actually outsampled his basslines onto vinyl and then resampled them in to get an extra warm sound and it really works.
