Quick one this week, as I have a grumpy daughter who won’t sleep, and a festival to pack for.
First up this week is the star track from the recently reviewed Proper Produce Volume 2. DJ Maars takens two of my favourite tracks, Mos Def’s Mathematics and Lee Dorsey’s Give It Up, to give you Givin Up. It’s the tits, Bag it here
Next up is something beatier and bouncier, but still on a funk sampling tip, from the Fajita Funk kids. Taking the awesomely monikered Pigmeat Markham‘s classic Here Comes the Judge and adding a few judicious (see what I did there) loops and a little bit of a rebalance towards the drums and you’re done. Niceness
Given that the summer has finally shown up, I thought I’d bow out this week on a thoroughly cheerful funk tip. This is Sakwatch and their track Your Love. Talk about horntactular-northern-soul-slash-motown-stomper – pick it up here
