YES! It's finally here, our boys do us proud once again.... Here's the official write up from Malente's No Brainer Records:
'Welcome to the Jungle'
Are you afraid of flying? It is a 28 hour drive from Chicago to Calgary. So when WILLY JOY (Trouble & Bass, Mad Decent) meets the SMALLTOWN DJS(Plant, Top Billin) it takes him forever to travel there.
One might think that's a total waste of time and gas, but with 'Wicked' the guys show us how inspiring it can be to hit a traffic jam. Picture this: Old jungle mixtape is playing, car stereo volume is maxed out, bass boost is activated. Hitting the car horns has never been more fun.
ARDALAN (Dirtybird) takes it to the Autobahn with his Dub. Why buy an expensive painting and hang it on your wall if you can have a timeless piece of art to dance to like this remix for less then two Euros. Yeah I know, but why not go over the top a bit in an info like that?
We at No Brainer Records love it when we can get someone to remix a tune they normally wouldn't even play in their sets. In a world where the musical majority goes: 'We only remix tunes that are our style', the guys who take on a challenge, the open-minded guys who love good music in general deserve our biggest respect. And is there a better way to translate a tune into your own language then MIXHELL (Boys Noize) do it here? There's not. It is 'Wicked', and it stays'Wicked' in this amazing remix.
As if all this wouldn't already prove that we love rhythm… With this remix by newbie MARCEAUXMARCEAUX(Voodoo Village) we serve you an additional future beats assault to digest. Guten Appetit.
Back to the Jungle where our main characters Mike and Pete, the cowboys from that small-town of Calgary and Willy Joy, the man from the windy city of Chicago, who's real name is Willy Joy by the way, find all their inspiration for this EP. 'All Junglists' is a shuffling thank you to a musical genre which deserves at least that.

These six tracks make up another exceptional and distinctive release from Auditand Homebreakin' Records. Stay tuned for more to come and funkier things to follow. A couple of remixes round out the package, courtesy of Homebreakin' extended family members Wax Romeo and Max Ulis. Max Ulis tackles 'Weirdo Beat,' raising the tempo as well as the proverbial roof with a somewhat house-fueled mix that builds with clanky percussion and excited, rhythmic vocal drops. Phased out synth pads and a crunchy bass line add to the late night sonic stew. Fellow Calgary-based DJ/producer Wax Romeo is up next, enhancing 'Sunny Winter' with a kinetic breakbeat and a repetitive, lilting female vocal line. It's a classy rework, using the layered Juno-60 arpeggiations and a solid low end for a full, rounded-out sound.Audit has been making things happen for over ten years, with DJ-proven past releases on the likes of East Recordings, Punchout!, and Homebreakin'. His sound combines elements of breakbeat, downtempo, and the funkier 'boogie' styles epitomized by like-minded friends All Good Funk Alliance and Neighbour. This latest release leads with 'Back To Normal,' a dubbed out slow motion crawl of a track incorporating a reggae skank, funky flute, and captured late-night radio transmissions. It's a new direction for Audit, with the title inspired by his need to 'get back to normal' after a slew of summer festival DJ gigs. 'Weirdo Beat' follows, with its chunky, loose rhythm and spaced-out atmosphere recalling the best moments of Sa-Ra and Mo' Wax. Next, Audit collaborates with partner-in-arms Watson on 'Sneek,' a deliciously slinky and squelchy exercise that does sound like a careful tip-toe through George Clinton's mothership. Very sneaky, indeed. Audit gets even moodier for his final track, 'Sunny Winter,' which is based around an endlessly tweaked Juno-60 arpeggiation over a heavy, loping beat. Audit recalls twisting the Juno-60 for hours on end at high volume, causing his neighbors to respond by blasting country music in his direction. Audit's punishment is his listeners' reward, as 'Sunny Winter' turns out to be an evocative, musical track touching on unexplored genres.Canada's funk contingent at Homebreakin' Records are pleased to unleash the latest effort from Calgarian DJ/producer Audit, titled the Back To Normal EP. Made up of four new tracks and a couple of hot shot remixes, the Back To Normal EP is anything but, instead comprised of unique and off-kilter dance floor grooves primed to send the party into the stratosphere.
