The Bhunabeats EP

A 4 track beats & breaks ep (19m 43s) — released October 27th 2008 on Bastard Jazz Recordings
Bastard Jazz Recordings presents "The Bhunabeats EP" from label founder DJ DRM, his first proper solo release on the Brooklyn label since 2001's "10 For Life" 7". The 12" also features a remix from Chico Mann of Netherland's Kindred Spirits label, and guitarist for New York Afrobeat supergroup Antibalas. Kicking things off with a heavy nod to Prince Buster is "Blinger On" – a 120BPM ska floor filler that pushes it's way into a big breakbeat with a squelchy analogue bassline complete with a melodica skank and classic Skatelites-esque trumpet solo. Up next is "Maya's Dub" - a bass-quaking joint with big drums, delayed out skanks, horn stabs and bits of organ slinking into late-in-the-game Portugese male vox. Flipping the record over, "Creature Comforts" is a deep, uptempo joint with late-night synths, fuzzy tribal percussion, deep bass and a re-worked two-step break that flips on it's head into a Broken sound mid-way through. Wrapping up the record is a remix of "Vidambana" by Chico Mann, also known as Marquitos Garcia – guitarist for Afrobeat supergroup Antibalas. His remix sticks right by his signature analogue afro/latin sound, incorporating the Indian elements of the original into a funky synth heavy rocker.
