Paul Birken keeps the bonus ball bouncing with 4 tracks of low-slung, dirty gutter funk - an art he has been perfecting for 25 years..
The Bonus Round family have been huge fans of Paul’s ever since hearing the Surfin Superior and Speaker Freakin’ records in the 90’s, and after his absolutely devastating rework of Luke’s Anger’s ‘Working Overtime’ (bonusround005), it is with great pleasure to introduce a 4 track EP by the underground innovator –
1. ‘That Which My Shovel Finds’ – Kicks off the E.P with a butt-clenching ride to the mothership! Off-beat organ stabs combine with crunchy tin-can drums to provide the backbone of this funk monster, all hell breaks loose as the alien orkestra beam down and jam out on their laser-kazoos and photon guitars!
2. “No Mo C64” – ‘An ode to my good ol' Commodore 64.. We don't need no mo. Comma 8 comma 1 load.’
Set your freak-phasers to stun, this is rolling late-night discotech!
3. “Doormat” – wiping it’s feet of all the boring tech-clones that plague our existence, this acid techno how we like it- RAW, live, and direct to your sensory systems.
4. “Shrug It Off” – Bubbling, groaning and screeching analogue synths controlled by alien octopus technology, this is not for the faint-hearted and comes with a recommendation to be aired in cavernous, neon-lit warehouses.
+++++++++++Forthcoming Bonus Round E.P’s T.B.A from artists such as Al Tourettes, Kid606, Ben Pest, Luke’s Anger, Jerome Hill, Spewis and more!+++++++++++

Gliteratti Fashionista EP
Bonus Round 12”
Half of The Black E and a quarter of Ninjatune's skronk-funk collective Pest, Ben Mallot's solo techno work seems designed to prove that digital doesn't need to mean clean.
In “Jumpadelic” a hammering Bassline House beat rebuilt from first principles from old Relief rhythms and a discarded Grime bass-tone pins you to the spot while self-replicating acid gargoyles with god-knows-what crusted round their mouth yammer gibberish in either ear.
“There's A Party Inside My Mouth” cuts it up for breakdancers to spin on a layer of fag-butts and chewing gum, while during “Tiny Beginnings” the whole club discovers that dancefloor gunk has transformed into a rising tide of deep, black marshmallowy gloop, but keeps moving nonetheless.
Luke's Anger's fast-edit remix of “Now Panic” is the smart kid at the rave, still mangled but with a sardonic smirk, miraculously keeping its trainers clean in the chaos.
the show starts at 8pm,

Luke passed me this recording of his a few weeks back. It's a recording of him playing live. The twist is that it's his first attempt at playing live off of the Machinedrum UW solely.
"quite happy with some parts of it, a few of the loops and transitions are a bit ropey but it's nice
to bang a box once in a while!"
Yes Luke, we all enjoy banging a box once in a while.
I hope you all enjoy this mix of Luke's as much as I did. It flows a lot differently than his stuff usually does due to the new way of putting it together for him. It's like hearing all your favorite Luke's Anger tracks remixed and recombined in a new way with some surprises along the way.

Review taken from Boomkat
"Luke Sanger arrived at the world of electronic music in 1995, experimenting with DJing having made his way toward an Amiga and some tracker software at an early age.
Since then he's released a series of dancefloor terrorising 12"s on imprints like Don't Recordings and Tigerbass, and this CD collects many of these works, sequencing them into 12-tracks on a convenient one-stop digital format.
Expect tracks with titles like 'Do Yo Ass' and preposterous Sinden-esque emissions like '24hr Freshness', or the hiccuping-hard-drive ghetto house of 'Get My Drink'. Massive bass damage is incurred on the likes of 'Dirty On The Floor', whose kick sounds come complete with that 'destroyed woofer' effect, all piled on top of faintly obscene sample snippets and the odd moment of outrageous DSP sabotage.
Plenty of fun to be had here..."

Bonus Round is back, the "Glitterati Fashionista EP" by Ben Pest unloads 4 original genre-bending tracks that contain elements of Techno and P-Funk, all ready to cause ruin to the discotheque!
"Jumpadelic" is a heavy Chicago influenced, gangster-funk workout. The tune has been causing a stir as part of Ben's live set with a vocal hook that gets everyone jacking! "There's a Party Inside My Mouth" is a hard and crunchy electro-funk track with some wobbly synths that will warp minds. Luke's Anger checks in with a futuristic re-work of "Now Panic" adding some spookiness to the twisted original. "Tiny Beginnings" rounds off the EP with a slower tempo and more funk-laden grooves, lots of cheeky sounds keep the mind hooked while the ass follows ;)
"Bonus Round Records keeps the shrapnel flying with its third release “Blister Pack”. Unleashing 5 fresh bass tracks designed to inflict critical dancefloor damage at your local rave. As well as two brand new killers from label boss Luke's Anger, Bonus Round welcomes some fresh faces: hellnoise rave pilot Kid 606 (Tigerbeat6/Tigerbass), Inspector Spectre (Truesounds) and Brighton’s Ninja Nuns from Outta Bass.
002 was recently released in spring '08 bringing 4 more tracks of bass-driven electro, techno dancefloor bizniz. Once again by Luke's Anger, this also has a storming electro remix courtesy Al Tourettes. A dubstep influenced collaboration with bass-pilot Uberdog rounds off the EP with style.
The first release by Luke in December '07 was a monster 4 track EP with a remix by London's techno maverick, 3d!t. It received critical acclaim and was rinsed (and still is!) by across the board DJ's such as Jerome Hill, Si Begg and DJ Warlock.
