Bboy Music Playlist – May 2016

Only the dopest bboy songs, mixtapes, remixes and more…

The Bboy Music Playlist is drawn from our personal selection of what we’ve been enjoying on a number of platforms, including Soundcloud, YouTube, Bandcamp, and elsewhere. To submit your own music or for someone else, click here.

Check out some of the artists, DJs, bands, and producers that we’ve been digging this month, starting with a heavy dope collection of tracks from China’s DJ Donew:

DJ Donew

“5 Bullz”

We don’t know much about China’s DJ Donew, other than the fact that he has some extra dope tracks on his Soundcloud page, though the song descriptions dig include this:

“5” (Traditional & Original & Root & Underground & Family)
“5” (Toprock & Footwork & Freeze & Air & Spin)
“5” (Life & Dance & Work & Love & Hiphop)
“5” (DJ & MC & Graffiti & Bboying & Knowledge)
“5 Bullz” 是一个组织,是一种方式,是一种世界观

…and we can dig it. Make sure to visit DJ Donew on Soundcloud for more of the funk.


DJ CHiEF

“Sofrito Secrets”

Bboysounds resident DJ CHiEF remains apparently on the run since the discovery of his “Panama Account” bboy song last month and since then, more of his hidden assets have come to light, including “Sofrito Secrets”:

This “shocking” release has been the soundtrack to DJ CHiEF’s escape from the authorities, with backstory here:

Keep up with DJ CHiEF’s latest releases on our own Black Label Breaks.

YOOMS

“Lonelyman” (Spencer Wiggins) Bboy Edit

We happened upon YOOMS’ bboy edit of “Lonelyman” and couldn’t stop listening to it.

Holding it down in France, YOOMS has got some treasures on his Soundcloud page, in addition to an account dedicated to riddims, and we love the reggae.

Make sure to check out YOOMS on Soundcloud.


Plasteed

“Exclusion 2016”

We came across Russia’s Plasteed while digging through the “bboy” crates on Bandcamp, and we’re very happy this happened, especially because of this album called “Exclusion 2016”:

Many dope, deep breaks, all the way from Sevastopol, Russia. Make sure to check out this and other releases on Plasteed’s Bandcamp page.


Funky Bijou

“Lido Break” (Road to Roma)

The funkiest brothers from France DJ Marrrtin and DJ Deheb of Funky Bijou are back – big time – with new tracks as part of their EP “Road to Roma” and as usual, we can dig it.

Anyone who appreciates dope original breaks knows that Funky Bijou is always bringing the heat, and we were very lucky to interview DJ Marrrtin on Bboysounds.

Make sure to support the brothers and visit Funky Bijou’s Bandcamp page.

Congrats to these brothers on another dope mixtape. Make sure to visit DJ AmazeMe on Soundcloud, and DJ Just-A-Kid as well.
