Funk n' Beats, Vol. 5 (Mixed by The Allergies)

A 26 track funk album (2h 33m 29s) — released May 4th 2018 on Bombstrikes

The Funk N' Beats series from Bombstrikes has reached something of a landmark with the delivery of the fifth volume. Now firmly established as a series of the highest quality, each compilation delivers in its own unique way via the guest artists involved and yet still it fits together as an overall body of work with the albums becoming something of a must have. The high level of guest artists continues on this compilation, with Bristol's funky beat-smiths The Allergies sitting in the curators chair and stamping their trademark style on proceedings and delivering the goods as would be expected from the mighty duo. The funk has been set to 11 here, showcasing why these two have been picking up some major props over the last few years! The track list delivers not only dance floor gold but also an education in life on the funkier side of music. There is plenty here for even the most educated aficionado of the scene, yet it is still delivered in a way that can engage first time listeners, which is no mean feat!

Once again the album contains new exclusive material nestled alongside bona fide classics and hidden gems. The Allergies deliver it all in a melting pot of their influences including Hip Hop, Funk Breaks and Soul. Fusing classic sounds for a modern audience like only they can. Some long time collaborators are present and correct on the album in the form of Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling) and Dr Syntax (Mouse Outfit & Foreign Beggars). The track listing also features highlights from Australian funksters The Traffic proudly sitting next to the UK's finest Ty, Soul maestro Bo Saris, the legendary Marc Hype, Chali 2na (Jurrasic 5) & The Funk Hunters, beats don Featurecast, music from the boys themselves and many more. The package also includes a DJ mix from the duo, which given their turntablist routes is every bit as good as you would expect. The only question left to ask is; what are you waiting for? An essential purchase!
