100% independent, fairly-priced and with core values which have helped shape and focus the direction of the festival since the very first event over 8 years ago, Leopallooza has garnered and nurtured a significant, passionate following from it’s attendees over the years.
1000 Earlybird tickets went on sale on December 1st 2013, 19 minutes later, they had all sold out.
A whole new Leopallooza experience for 2014 “Hong Kong Ping Pong presents Temple Of Boom’ – we’ve handed over a part of the festival to the popular DJ troupe. Expect the unexpected!
Jimi revamps his unmistakable electro-swing banger ‘Swing Da Club’ into something, well, rather Ghetto Funky indeed!
We are excited to announce the 2nd instalment of Ghetto Funk Presents… on Saturday 26th July 2014 at The Bunker – Orange Rooms, Bournemouth.
I Found Lovin’ gets a funky revamp by Sammy Senior as he puts his take on a classic track from The Fatback Band
Featurecast remix of Easy Ain’t Nothin by Ephemerals
Out soon on Jalapeno Records
Touching down at McClusky’s Kingston for a room 2 takeover, Fresh from the Sewer Presents… is a brand new night of bass-fueled party shenanigans.
Ghetto Funk have found a new platform to share music with you, and to kick things off properly we have started with uploading the Icons Vol. 1 tracks as free downloads, which were previously only available to members of Ghettofunk.co.uk
Dear Hong Kong Ping Pong fans, Mixcloud in association with the International Radio Festival (IRF) have launched the inaugural Mixcloud & IRF Online Radio Awards. We’d love it if you’d consider dropping ‘Beating The Crates’ a vote! Thankyouplease! xxx
Windy City Soul is a free track from Spark Arrester which is available to download from his soundcloud page, and was released in conjunction with Boogieburg Recordings
We wanted to present a Hype Vocal Pack that was as valuable to DJs as it would be to Producers. So we contacted 2 heavyweights in the vocal business, Ugly Ducking’s Dizzy Dustin and Savant aka Stanstro and invited them into our studio to create the Ultimate Hype Vocal Sample Pack.
DJ Shepdog has released some of his classic tracks in a tasty download package from bandcamp
Too Many T’s make their way over East side to preview their Running Wild show before they head on their next full UK tour.
This is a new mashup I made featuring vocals by Ghostface Killah (Wu-Tang Clan) and instrumental of Moby’s “Run On”. 92 bpm, works well for me in my hip hop sets, or after Drum & Bass.
DJs put your booties on, it’s dope out there! Yes – a year after its now sold-out vinyl drop, Mako & The Hawk‘s mighty Party Goin On EP is coming at ya in digital formats in time once again for the summer party season.
Another freebie from Father Funk, this time the last track of his set from Shindig Weekender Festival.

Here is a digital master of “Start Your Feet Like Dis” by Basement freaks released as a b-side on the legendary GoodGroove Records back in 2009.
Shaka Love’s You (longtime) have made a great AV edit of A.Skillz’ Festival Edit of ‘Dub Be Good To Me”
2 x World Champion, creator of a long list of original scratches and turntablism techniques, co-designer of the worlds first turntable instrument (Vestax C1), audio-visual DJ pioneer, animator and designer. DJ Woody is identical to none.
Morphosis returns from a Glastonbury induced hiatus (he did a show last week but failed to blog it) to the NSB Radio webwaves bringing you ‘Beating The Crates’ in a Hong Kong Ping Pong Styleeeeee in association with www.ghettofunk.co.uk, jammed full with some of the freshest cuts around. Big love to all we bumped into at Glastonbury, needless to say a lot of fun was had! xxx
THE FUNKEE WADD LOVES YOU!!!
They’re back! Although they’ve never really been away. Barry Ashworth’s evergreen bunch of dubwise vagabonds have been rocking practically every festival in existence all summer, and yet have still found time to squeeze out a new album — their sixth. And it’s another corker.
Fort Knox Five delivers the latest mix in their Funk The World mix series – Funk The World 24 is now available as a FREE DOWNLOAD!!
Today Sir Skeewiff-how-very-dare-you the third and the right honourable Reverend Samwise Senior don short cut red leather jackets, pull on diamante studded fingerless gloves and own our sorry asses with their sexual prowess and latex lunges. It doesn’t matter if you can’t turn left, or own a centre for moonwalking ants, not when you can walk like an Egyptian!
Bondi Stereo. He’s not just funky, he’s angrier than a bag of jumping jackaroos!
Four cheeky party-pleasers: “Party With Me” takes Busta to the nu-funk pastures his distinctive vocals have always demanded. “Hold Me Down” introduces us to Morongroover’s ability to fine-tune the perfect amount of distortion to an otherwise salubrious party chant while “Hit That Jive” acts as the liveliest, glitchiest, freakiest soundtrack to one of Bootsy Collin’s wet dreams. Finally we hit “Can You Do It”, a slower hip-hop influenced track that struts with a confident guitar-twanging swagger and expert execution of one of People Under The Stair’s best raps. We can only assume Morongroover has named himself ironically – truly, there is nothing moronic about these beats!
The latest release on Disco Cakes see’s Deekline team up with Hotline Zero, whilst Slynk revisits another Deekline and Solo classic drum n’ bass track, bringing it into the world of funky breaks in top form.
Happy Slap Boutique recently ran a DJ competition offering a ticket and a DJ slot on their stage at BoomTown Fair Festival to the winner.
The Funk Hunters and CMC & Silenta have released a very funky slice of Glitch-Hop with See-I on the vocals!!! Click thru to check out the music:
