Funk, Filth and F-Words! - An Exclusive Free Mix from Retropolis

@#&%, £%$# and also @£&*£! This is something @*%#ing special!!

One of the best things about life at Funk and Filth HQ is that occasionally we stumble across DJs and Producers who are not global superstars, who do not have thousands of pounds of marketing spend behind them, but who ARE fucking brilliant at what they do! Retropolis is one of those, and we are stoked to have a brand new EXCLUSIVE FREE MIX from one of the hottest breaks talents in the UK at the moment!

Not only has Retropolis been responsible for producing one of our favourite breaks tracks in recent memory [Hold Me Now, check it out further down the post!], but he has been pretty much ever-present in the Beatport charts with a consistent string of badass releases! Check them all out here.

Like an outburst of beautiful musical tourettes thumping into your ears and through your ribcage, his x-rated Funk, Filth and F-Words mixtape below is rammed full of breaks, electro and other bassline bangers (even including Kwerk's recent Funk and Filth Re-Werk!) . . . this will definitely get the blood pumping!

Check it out and let us know what you think! The tracklist is at the bottom of this post!

Have you got your tickets to our massive London party at Brixton Jamm, featuring Deekline, Freestylers, Kwerk, Danny Byrd, Doctor Hooka, Jurassik and loaaaads more??

Funk and Filth File 'o Facts : Eli Crust [Exclusive Free Mix]

Beautiful bassline music is a global phenomenon, rupturing from speakers in all corners of the globe, including Belarus! And this exactly where our latest surprise package has been unearthed!

Coming from Belarus has been a massive bonus for Eli Crust, as he's been able to soak up music and vibes from touring DJ's who visit his little oasis (or should we say o-bass-is!? Sorry, really got to stop doing that!) in Western Europe. It's also afforded him the opportunity to tour around and take his sound from Poland to Romania, spreading beautiful beats across Eastern Europe like Nutella across warm toast! Mmmmmm, Nutella!

Eli has flirted with all sorts of styles of electronic music, but Breakbeat is at the core of his sound and his true love.
His latest release is a double header with some of the UK's finest vocalist. 'Machine Gun' features Sirreal (Freestylers & Dub Pistols) and Manners, While 'Ride Wit Me' has vocals from Jay Tuns & Kwame Atteen.

Remixes for this release come from Dr. Verbel (Belarus) & Burnt B (Germany) and you can bet they're just as special! The package of originals and remixes spans the wide spectrum of breaks from 'Booty' to 'Electro'... There is something here for everyone, have a butchers and see what you think, we bloody love it!

In fact we loved it so much that we asked Eli for an Exclusive Free Funk and Filth Mix, to see what else has been tickling his musical fancy! And here it is, an absolute stonker of a mix, including nuggets from the likes of Meat Katie, Plaza De Funk, Tim Healey and Deekline and loooaads more! Grab it for FREE now! [Tracklist at the bottom of this page]


We also had some questions to ask of the hottest thing to come out of Belarus! Find out how he ended up hooking up with SirReal and why he loves the fact that he only plays vinyl in his sets!

You are from Belarus, how is the breakbeat scene there?

Unfortunately, breakbeat is not so popular in our country nowadays. There are a couple of DJ's supporting this style. Less parties are held here now. But I am hoping to bring the sound back to my home by making some great breaks!

You've just returned home from a tour around Europe, tell us your favourite country you played on tour?

Of course I love to perform in Germany, but breakbeat lost its popularity. Poland is more prostrated to this sound, for example with the annual festival Bass Planet hosted by Westbam.

You only play vinyl right? Tell us why?

I'm still one of those old analog audio lovers, conservative DJ that still plays fundamentally only vinyl mainly due to the sound as a whole as well as like to say "direct contact with the music", today's it's become a unique part of my DJ show!

Your new single RIDE WID my MACHINE GUN is out next week. Tell us the vocalists who are featured on your latest release and how you started to work with them?

I prepared this release almost a year and a half ago, the release has changed a few times in that period, but the MC's are still the same: Sirrial (Freestylers, Dub Pistols) and Jay Tuns (Ten Ton Beats, Ben & Lex), on back vocals also with great guys Manners and Kwame Atteen. Admire their voice and way of lyrics: hard and groovy!

So what are your plans for the future?

Still wish breaks music was like it was 10 years ago! I prefer to be more underground, playing little clubs, meeting breakbeat supporters, producing quality stuff! Will continue my climbing top charts to show my skills!

01 The Autobots and Screwface feat MC Navigator - Burn (original mix) [Broke]
