Just Bagged......

Cut Chemist - Rare Equations - Slurp Volume One / Rare Equations 12"

"For the first time together on vinyl we have eight unmixed tracks from DJ Cut Chemist's "Rare Equations" nonstop live mix CD of strictly rare and hard to find dusty old 45s classic hip hop breakbeat . The first volume has the excellent DJ Premier-sampled Foster Sylvers cover version of "Misdemeanor" by Ahmad Jamal, a huge thumping break beat-driven stomper from Dyke & the Blazers “Bull Dyke” (two copies please!!) plus additional highlights from such venerably reliable breakbeat-sampled legends as Kool & The Gang and The Meters. Also watch out for the Jimmy Smith track “Root Down” with its sublime keys over a live funk bluesey break driven backdrop - an absolute gem, and famous for its Beastie Boys sampling!" (Piccadilly Records)


A1 Ahmad Jamal - Misdemeanor
A2 The Meters - Funky Miracle
A3 Bar-Kays - Humpin’
A4 Big Daddy Kane - Long Live The Kane
B1 Dyke & The Blazers - Bull Dyke
B2 Jimmy Smith - Root Down
B3 Kool & The Gang - Give It Up
B4 Young Holt Unlimited - Wah Wah Man

Jose James - Warrior (Remixes) 12" (Brownswood Records)

"Further remixes of soul saviour José James from Rockwell, SBTRKT and Jus Wan. The remix from man-of-the-moment SBTRKT is easily our highlight, dripping James' dark chocolate vocals over a hyper-highlife riddim sounding something like Seiji jamming with Tony Allen on a space station above Lagos. On a slightly more terrestrial tip Jus Wan provides a sparklingly sharp future garage version and Rockwell gives a quicksilver D'n'B mix, but neither comes close to that killer flex from SBTRKT. Heavy" (Boomkat)
