Booty Fruit / Proper Produce Volume 2


Everyone loves a good mashup don’t they? Taking a well known track, spinning it on it’s head and watching the dancefloors reaction of “ooh, I know thi … wait a minute” before going mental is a great laugh.

It’s also somewhat of a  speciality of the Booty Fruit boys and girls and they’ve done the business again on Proper Produce Volume 2.

Leading from the front , the EP opens with label boss Hidden Riddim and his compadre El Bomba’s track, Dr Fluteski. Taking a chopped and screwed flute loop from the Beastie Boys laid over a snapping snare, this will surely set your head nodding.

Next up Bristol boys, The Allergies, take it to a mellow place, reflipping Blueboys Remember Me, adding some Grace Jones and a soupcon of Dennis Edwards to give you Remember. I love the cheeky little Eric B & Rakim sample from Paid in Full on the outro.

On Where’s Me Washboard, Hong Kong Ping Pong show their love of both kinds of music, Country *and* Western when they go digging for samples. Featuring a full-bore gap-toothed yokel style ‘harmonicky solo’ over one of Kernows biggest recent exports – Bass.

The prolific DJ Maars sees us out with Givin Up, a cheeky little lift of Mos Def’s massive hit Mathematics over the top of a personal favourite of mine, New Orleans Funk legend Lee Dorsey’s Give it Up, then add some extra bongos. Nice

And as an extra-bonus-doubleplusgood feature, here’s the video for the Allergies tune below!

Stepping up to the plate to give you all you need to make that Jerk Chicken all the sweeter are the boys from Booty Fruit, with their first volume of Dubplate Bullets
