Para Todos…

 Para is a Swindon-based DJ and producer and for the past years he’s part of the Breakin’ Bread family. “It’s The Hornet/ The Hideaway EP” was released back in 2008 and it’s a fine introduction with the musician, if you haven’t heard him by now. Hip hop beats and breaks with funky and latin grooves, all beautifully combined, as the sound of today wants to be aggressive and also sweet… 3/5.

Bongolian Candidate…

 “Outer Bongolia” is the third album of The Bongolian aka Nasser Bouzida and was released in 2007. What you can find here? Psychedelic grooves dipped into funk and jazz, latin soul and bongo rhythms served with breaks and big beat. Great production and a free ticket to travel to the sound of the past. The Bongolian is one hell of a musician and knows well how to merge classic music genres with a dancefloor attitude. Don’t miss this (if you don’t have it, already)… 4/5!

Balboa…

 Lefties Soul Connection are back! That’s great news. “One Punch Pete” is here to continue their raw funk experience. For the first time we see, some collaborations on the vocal part, a cover of “Have Love Will Travel” and the usual shenanigans of the Dutch quartet. Great production, great music, awesome revival spirit. That’s what characterise the Lefties Soul Connection. We love them and we support them. Carry on, my good fellas… 4/5!
