Inner City
Inner City (limited 7")
Cat: FF45 015. Rel: 05 Apr 22
Jim Sharp - "Inner City" (3:45)
Nick Bike - "Inner City" (Power mix) (4:48)
Review: Jim Sharp & Nick Bike are two of Canada's finest beat makers and here they turn their attention to the legendary Marvin Gaye. His 'Inner City' from the timeless What's Going On album gets a modern update from Jim Sharp that retains the soulful vocal of the original but with new drums. They're crisp and tight but funky, and the bendy chords and melodic motifs flesh it out. On the reverse is a Power Mix by Nick Bike that ups the weight and stomp of the drums and layers in the wordless ad libs from the original to bring the soul.

Old Skool Bounce
Cat: FF45 016. Rel: 05 Apr 22
Old Skool Bounce (3:39)
It Really Matters To Me (3:33)
Review: Aaron aka Double A really serves up a double a-sided banger here for the Friday's Funky 45 label. It is a block-rocking beat with plenty of old-school samples and raw funk drumming that kick off on 'Old Skool Bounce'. The vocals are visceral call-and responses with a classic lead flute sound bring the joy. On the flip, things start with a super cool and breezy beat before a big vocal erupts and the prickly funk drums and rim shots elevate the track. It's another classic vocal top line that finishes it in style.

Right On (Jim Sharp mix) (2:57)
Full Love (Jim Sharp mix) (4:14)
Review: Ff45 (Friday's Funky 45) welcome Canada's finest Jim Sharp back to the fore with two 7"-ready sure-shots, of the remix/reinterpretation/covers variety. On the A, we hear a flip of J-Lo's pop classic 'Get Right' but reconstructed to dazzling effect, with every part rerecorded impeccably and placed into a fresh breaks-funk context. The B, meanwhile, reinterprets the Armand Van Helden/Common hip-disco-house classic, 'Full Moon'.

Marrrrtin's Scenario
Cat: FF45 019. Rel: 22 Jul 22
Hip Hop/R&B
Marrrtin's Scenario (4:05)
Enta Humpty (3:21)
Review: French beatmaker DJ Marrrtin has his fingers in a lot of pies, from running Stereophonk to working in groups like Funky Bijou. Now he's up on Friday's Funky 45 with a hip-hop rooted re-flip to get party people the world over rocking out. 'Marrrtin's Scenario' does a damn fine job of re-positioning A Tribe Called Quest's classic 'Scenario' with some organ-soaked funk, while 'Enta Humpty' goes heavy on the boom bap breaks to provide a heads down groove that should get the breakers breaking and the freakers freaking. When you can't get enough heat for that lil box of 7"s, Friday's Funky 45 have got you covered.

Soul Powder (4:11)
Soul Powder (instrumental) (3:01)
Soul Powder - Bonus Cutz (bonus track) (0:39)
Review: FF45 welcomes Smoove back for his third edits release, and this one surely won't disappoint: The Pharcyde reign over a beefed-up JB break - what's not to like? - while an instrumental and some bonus bits for DJs abound on the flip, making for a more measured listen in contrast to the more vocally immediate, on-the-beat A.

Street Hop (2:55)
You Got It (3:04)
Review: Martin Reeves aka Krafty Kuts was a key player in the breakbeat explosion at the turn of the millennium. Like many of his peers in the scene, he was of course also a deep digging DJ with an extensive knowledge of breaks and funk and it is that which he twisted into his own contemporary style. Now he returns to those roots somewhat for a seance time on his FF45 label with a pair of hard and hella funky hitting beats. The first is 'Street Hop which is a raw, Nas-style hip-hop joint with tough bars and beats. 'You Got It' then takes the energy levels down a touch for a deeper vibe with bars that remind more of Biggy.

93' Til Infinity (remixes)
Cat: FF45 023. Rel: 06 Jul 23
Hip Hop/R&B
93' Till Infinity (DJ ADS remix) (3:46)
Hate It Or Love It (DJ ADS remix) (2:50)
Review: DJ ADs joins the FF45 roster with two banging remixes of Souls of Mischief & 50 Cent classics respectively. On the A, we hear a version of the former's ''93 Till Infinity', except for a deeper, fuller boom-bap instrumental that revels in its central bass riff and electric-piano staccatos. 50 Cent's remix is the highlight of the B-side, with 'Hate It Or Love It' lent a victorious, brass-laden memory-lane-trippin' beat, more than fit for a king, "rap's MVP".

Hip Hop/R&B
Don't Stop Get It (3:21)
Funky Atmosphere (4:14)
Review: Norfolk breaks master Chrome has been at it since the 80s, but this is a marker of authenticity that almost goes without saying, not least since his latest 7" 'Don't Stop Get It' needs rather little context to back it up. When your A-side is this bouncy, punchy and deft, most cut-up heads will deem it an insta-cop. That being said, while these sample-heavy originals prioritize maximum bass and treble at all turns, they also flaunt a taste for the weird; the B's 'Funky Atmosphere' is funky indeed, coming thick and fast with its cuckoo-clock-like samples and strange plinky-plonky stutters.
