Big Fat Mama Beats – FREEFAT#7 V/A
Big Fat Mama Beats’ massive FreeFat EP series is back and back with a bang it is! This time around there are 5 free chunks of wholesome breakbeat goodness to get your hands on from Sonale, The Funk Philosopher, Wiccatron and BadboE.
South Africa’s king of breaks, Sonale, kicks off FreeFat 5 with his sample-tastic track Twisted Shot. Chunky broken beats and an infectious funky groove are matched with a heavy dose of The Beatles, a dash of Salt-N-Peppa and several other samples to create a proper party atmosphere. The Funk Philosopher follows with a remix of Dj Judi‘s deep house track Funky Sound and turns it into an atmospheric breakbeat roller that will transport you to your happy place! It has just squeaked it for me as the best track on the EP.
Label co-founder Wiccatron has a hand in all three of the remaining tracks. His all guns blazing big-beat remix of The Shamen‘s early ’90s classic Move Any Mountain is one of two remixes by himself, with his psychedelic and funkier big-beat take on Fatboy Slim‘s late ’90s classic Praise You. FreeFat 5 finishes with a remastered version of Wiccatron and BadboE‘s gritty classic Sophisticated Beat. As has been the case since its inception, BFMB has delivered the goods once again and if you’re planning a breaks mix or live stream, these 5 tracks have to be in serious consideration for the final cut. You just wouldn’t want to be without them!
