Dr Rubberfunk Disco Scene The good doctor has been a cherished member of the Jalapeno Records family for the best part of ten years now with three albums and many more singles to his name. With evergreen support from the likes of BBC6Music and especially Craig Charles his back catalogue never seemed to fall out of fashion and we consistently received requests to reissue classic tracks on vinyl for discerning DJs and fans. Well we're not the types to argue with anyone and frankly we thought that they might have a good point so we've relented and are releasing a special 7 vinyl with two versions of his seminal track 'Disco Scene'. Of course the classic original mix is present and the frantically energetic 'Breaks Of Wrath Re-Edit' has got its back…One vinyl, two banging mixes, many happy people – it's just simple maths really.

Dr Rubberfunk Hot Stone Dr Rubberfunk drops new album 'Hot Stone' on Jalapeno Records! He used to work here, check this out! 2008 was the year that Dr. Rubberfunk joined the Jalapeno family and brought his irrepressible good time vibe to the j-funk party.The first fruits of this partnership dropped in Spring 2008 in the form of the ‘Sunset Breakup EP’ – a cracking 4 tracker that rounded up 2 dancefloor friendly B-Boy tracks (originally produced at the behest of the Rock Steady Crew!)and the sizzling soul of ‘Part Of Me’, a brand new collaboration with Dutch soulstress Sitzka. Working tirelessly with a talented collection of musicians, the Rubberfunk studios began to yield a steady flow of songs, and another solid hookup with John Turrell on the blue-eyed-soul of ‘Northern Comfort’. Listening to tunes and album ideas in the Rubberfunk record library, led to one of those ‘wouldn’t it be great if…’ type conversations; ‘wouldn’t it be great if we could get Roachford on vocals’, and a few quick emails later ‘Trouble Woman’ was born. A cautionary tale and a lesson in low slung soul all in one. vocalist Philippo, who’s featured on‘Rising Steps’ brings sweet harmonies to some dirty drums, exotic percussion and floating keys.The vocal tracks are rounded out with 3 more stunning performances from Sitzka, showcasing her talents in a variety of styles, from the rolling jazz piano hip hop of ‘It’s Not Clear’, the mellow acoustic guitar beats of ‘Get Away’ to the intense gutsy funk of ‘You’re No Good’. Horns on ‘You’re No Good’ (along with ‘Northern Comfort’ and ‘Trouble Woman’) come courtesy of a transatlantic hook-up; Todd Simon, hornsman for The Breakestra, Connie Price & The Keystones and Mayer Hawthorne, drops the perfect brass accompaniment to the Rubberfunk sound. Remaining instrumental tracks on ‘Hot Stone’ roll from Blue Note style soul jazz of ‘Magic Beans’ to the fuzz heavy psych funk on ‘Theme From Hot Stone’, all in the inimitable Rubberfunk style and completing a beautifully crafted album of songs and sounds, moods and melodies – a stone cold aural massage!

Dr Rubberfunk Riding With The Ratman * All initial copies are personally signed by Dr Rubberfunk himself! * A rock solid funk beat banger as the Doctor is known to drop with consistency like you wouldn't believe, with some smartly dropped US vocal snatches about rat catching that fall in with the beat perfectly. Side B is more of a soulful jammie with Rogiers, who has worked with Platinum Pied Pipers and is definitely on the rise...

Dr Rubberfunk Latin Player Another sho' shot from the funk doctor! Lovely summery acoustic guitar layers meet with keyboards and solid drums to create a mellow track with rugged undertones which will serve your barbeques or other non-cooked meat based social functions well! The b-side '2 Player Hi Score Remix' is more straight up Rubberfunk biz with some choice computer game samples to take you directly back to your childhood days of too much gaming (well, for the some of us) and 'Come On In And Get Some' is a keyboard heavy, funky drum laced and very live sounding hip hop influenced jammie, with some tight cuts on there too! Good work, Rubbs. You rule! (NB) GPS 12"
