4) Aquasky & Blastermaster - Take It to the Floor

Aside from all the really good (and really crap) bootlegs, I think that nothing comes close to the impact CANADIAN labels and artists had around the breaks world this year.

My top tune(s) would have to be all the canadian content that rocked those blokes across the pond in the last 12 months.

This was just the start, on to bigger and better things in 2004!

1 - Andrea Doria - Bucci Bag
2 - Sole Claw - Goth Chick Hand Job
3 - Planet Funk - Who Said
4 - Robb G - Who's Lauging
5 - Krafty Kuts - The Ill Funk
6 - Plump Djs - Funk Hits The Fan
7 - Stir Fry - Lose Control
8 - FreeLand - We Want Your Soul
9 - Stereo 8 - Cant Stop
10 - PFN - Fascination

Big Disappointments: Anything Soul Of Man touched...the last whimpers of Airdog Recordings, the innundation of terrible terrible bootlegs and that lumidee track ( ;) )

i have to say, i was rather fond of a couple soul of man tracks this year. i think people expected to be absolutely blown away by the new shite, thus were maybe a tad disappointed when it was just really good. personally, i was very excited about, 'the drum'--wicked choon!!!!, and one of the tracks on the back2back ep was pretty nice n' dark n' funky as well methinks.

..and the one track which most people liked, the rerub of the dub pistols' problem is, i wasn't impressed by at all. ..but perhaps i'm just odd..

Was No Replica 2003 or 2002?

I also really liked Phrenetic - Fatal and Elementalelectrofunk by Andy Page George Clinton and Paul Deuterman.


TRIBE Member
I agree with Meeyag's - SOM blew this year. Lets just hope thats because he was so caught up with other Finger Lickin releases.
