"Bite Sized Beats Vol. 1"

by Wattie Green

Flip Mode 05:54
Love Break 06:15


Flapjack Records is proud to present the first release in a new off shoot collection of 7” single vinyl pressings entitled “Bite Sized Beats”…..yep that’s right, the tiny little records that used to have big holes in the middle and played at 45 rpm, that’s what these releases will be pressed on. Only these records will have the standard sized pin hole and have a full 6 to 7 minute house track on each side that plays at 33 rpm. But aren’t 7” records low in volume you may ask? Truthfully they are lower in volume than 12” pressings, but ironically are mastered at a higher volume than digital releases and sound super warm and great! It’s a big sound on a smaller format which is why the name “Bite Sized Beats” suits it well.

“Bite Sized Beats Vol. 1” has two smoking cuts from Flapjack veteran Wattie Green. The first cut “Flip Mode” is a great throwback to the jack of i:Cube’s hit Disco Cubism. Utilizing the same slammin key sample, Wattie slices it up just right and puts in the smoker very early in the morning. After about 8 hours, it comes out and is seasoned to perfection with his solid beats and break wisdom resulting in one hell of a delicious dance floor bomb.

On the flip side, we have a “Love Break” which is a beautiful Mexican style dish loaded with Latin flavor. This cut is quite a departure from Wattie signature swinging style, but consistent and tantalizing to the tongue as all of his dishes are. Throwing us back to the days of the Latin house craze, Wattie bastes and bakes this acoustic bass and piano baby to perfection. One whiff of this jam will have your feet stomping into a fried chicken frenzy.

So if you are not looking for something too big, but with huge flavor, then you best try out “Bite Sized Beats Vol. 1”. I’m sure you will find that it is extremely satisfying and many levels. There are many more of this series to come, so keep some room in the fridge for some of this future fried funk.
