New essentials, mix tape fodder and floor rockers.

1.  Habitual Parking Violators – One to Twelve [REBTUZ]
The Sesame Street disco counting classic gets another re-edit, but this time on very handy 7 inch vinyl.

2.  Incredible Bongo Band – Apache [Mr. Bongo Recordings]
The bongo-fueled break classic on a loud 12 inch with a Grandmaster Flash remix. Nice!

3.  Color Climax – Crabwalk [Breakin’ Bread]
Latin-flavored dirty breaks and organ funk stormer. Heavy!

4.  Speedometer – Work It Out [Freestyle Records]
Miss B.’s instant classic (from Austin Powers in Goldmember) gets a live funk treatment and a remix from the prolific Beatfanatic.

5.  Milez Benjiman – Chop That Wood [Tru Thoughts Recordings]
Electro-funk/hip-hop floor-filler from new Tru Thoughts signing Milez Benjiman. Dopeness.

6.  Skull Snaps – It’s a New Day REDUX [Ten12 Records]
Underdog remixes the Skull Snaps break-heavy soul classic.

7.  The Bamboos – Bring It Home (Lanu Remix) [Tru Thoughts Recordings]
The incomparable Ms. Alice Russell does her soul diva thang with live funk band the Bamboos. And the Lanu remix pushes it over the top and into Bossa breaks territory. This is definitely one for the ladies.
