Image: 1581954 The Captain aka Fab Samperi is one of the hottest names in Ghetto Funk right now and we are proud to welcome him to Breakbeat Paradise Recordings to drop a monster 5-track vinyl. He’s teamed up with two countrymen who share his passion for funky upbeat drum ‘n’ bass groovers – the Italian producers PhonoMatt & Tommyboy. If this wasn’t enough they’ve teamed up with another ghetto funk heavy weightier: BadboE who’s dropping a killer remix on the flip side of this EP.

Expect something a little different from the usual BBP business but as always funky as hell and full of attitude. The tempo is closer to drum ‘n’ bass but the street feel and wobbles from ghetto funk makes these jams perfect peak time bangers.

The Captain just recently dropped his first 4-track vinyl on the legendary Ghetto Funk label, which were ripped off the shelves and sold out in less than 2-month time. The Captain has previously released tunes on labels likes Resense, Tremendo & Good Groove and remixed tunes by CMC/Silenta, Ursula 1000, The Sly Players & Dj Love as well as releasing the full length album: Power Bossa on the Agogo label in 2011.

It’s clear that PhonoMatt & Tommyboy is following the footsteps of their Captain and this EP shows a breath of air into the Ghetto Funk scene from a new breed of funky Italian producers.
