Sometimes, digging up 3 tracks for you lot to feast your ears on is hard work – ploughing through screeds of derivative stale takes on the same old samples, dodging PRs who insist I’m going to love their latest alt-country star (I won’t), and avoiding EDM can chafe a touch.

 Compared to normal, this week’s been pretty easy. My tune-radar was finely honed and the following 3 stunners pretty much dropped into my lap this week. Result!

 Boca 45’s Boca’s Club Donuts label is now up to his 3rd release, each of which has sold out blindingly fast, and now change hands for silly money. This time, I got on it and grabbed me a slice of the prime cut is the sliced ‘n’ diced sample-hopping Sly Dog.

Riddled with beats and cuts you know, from Sly and the Family Stone /Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin),  Snoop Dogg (hence the name of the track), LL Cool J / /Momma Said Knock You Out ,  and a stack of others, I can see this slaying dancefloors.

Word of warning, if you want this one, act quickly – it’s vinyl only and a limited of 300. There might be a couple left on Juno if you’re lucky, else it’s around £30 on Discogs …

 I’m a big fan of Roast Beatz work,, so when he hooks up with Mydiggi (as Mystro v2.0 is known), it’s definitely going to get my attention.

Let It Go is a summery as hell tune, with a lovely vocal coming from Ella Mae Sueref, and some seriously lovely sub-bass in the chorus.

Out on the 22nd June on Cuttinitfine Records

 

Last track is a wonderful piece of liquid Drum and Bass from Earl Grey. The Lick was originally released in 1995, and this still sounds ruddy brilliant.
