You may think that Fight Like Apes are a blogspiracy such is the amount of blog love coming their way of late. But they’re real and they rock like apes.

More reasons to love Palms Out as they’ve outed the Prodigy as sample monsters. If you haven’t done so already, check out Palms Out’s forensic dissection of Daft Punk. More cuts, incisions and nasty bits than a monster mash of Scrubs, ER, Grey’s Anatomy, Holby City, All Saints and Casualty. For some reason, there were never any nasty bits in The Clinic. Just the acting.

Cheers to Charlie for signposting this documentary on the Amen break, the six second sample from “Amen, Brother” by The Winstons which has subsequently gone on to star on countless hip-hop and drum’n'bass tracks.

Via the mighty Cheebah crew comes this fantastic footage of breakdancers doing it at the Cliffs of Moher as shot by Claire McGrath. Who needs a blooming interpretive centre when you can dance off on a big square of cardboard or lino on top of a cliff?

German deep funk powerhouse Poets Of Rhythm are on their way to Ireland for dates in Dublin (Whelan’s, June 7) and Limerick (Dolan’s Warehouse, June 8). Check out what they sound like in advance with this free download courtesy of the Choice Cuts gang.

It’s the party-friendly Missill. She’s at Tripod (Dublin, May 25) and Trinity Rooms (Limerick, May 26). Go along. Jump around. Enjoy. Smile. Or watch her latest video here.
