SMOOVE: The Only Way Is Oop/ De La Smoove Lesson 1 (2013)

Rating: ★★★★★ It’s been a while since Smoove‘s last official release but Berry Geordie is back with both remix barrels aimed squarely at the dancefloor on this sexy little 45 from the Digga Please label. First up is surefire lady-pleaser The Only Way is Oop a.k.a.Smoove’s muscular northern coal edit of Otis Clay’s 1980 lost classic more famously covered by Yazz eight years later. Over on the flip our man lets his b-boy roots shine through to school y’all by rebooting the whole Double Dee & Steinski/ DJ Shadow/ Cut Chemist lesson concept and taking it right back to Lesson 1 by stitching together samples famously used by De La Soul. Gan and get yorsel a copy man!
(Out 22 July on Digga Please)
