IZO FITZROY: Say Something

IZO FITZROY:  Say SomethingRight, new Izo FitzRoy single out – Say Something. No, not you, doofus! That’s the name of the single! Third track off last year’s Skyline album, you may remember – rolls along on a cracking drum break, decorated with a jazzy bit of piano while FitzRoy lambasts an unsupportive lover in her bluesy rasp? What could improve on that? Well, the singles package

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER:  Rock Rock b/w Blast Off (Remix)(Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Whoo-eee! You won’t know whether to Rock Rock or Blast Off with this new double-Andy Cooper-featuring Allergies donut on Jalapeno. Haaaang on a minute. Didn’t Jalapeno release Rock Rock and Blast Off on 7″ already? Like two years ago? Ahhh – you’ll be thinking of the original vinyl drop when a 45 featuring speed-rap Rock Rock and the album version of Blast Off

PROFIT feat. JFB: Booking Hot (SHAKA LOVES YOU remix)(2017)

PROFIT feat. JFB:  Booking Hot (SHAKA LOVES YOU remix)Part two of tonight’s remix frenzy is the Shaka Loves You boys’ take on the final single from emcee PRofit‘s True Colours album – the JFB-featuring Booking Hot. Out go the wah-wah guitar, and electro beat of the original and in come a rather more funky break, horns and a Rhodes melody, the latter of which lends something of a pensive air to proceedings despite the undoubtedly

MENACE*LIVE: My Persona (DUBMATIX remix) (2017)

MENACE * LIVE:  My Persona (DUBMATIX remix)Following his success with Megative’s excellent More Time, reggae remixer de jour, Toronto’s Dubmatix, gets his hands on slacker anthem My Persona by former Shootyz Groove roadie Menace*Live for another legit remix. Man knows how to pick a track! Out goes the heavy bashment beat of the Queens-based rapper’s original and in comes Dubmatix’s trademark heavy dub-reggae skank as he works

MEGATIVE: More Time (DUBMATIX remix and dubs)(2017)

MEGATIVE:  More Time (DUBMATIX remix and dubs)(2017)“Oh, I never gave a fuck about the youth I wasted/ I thought I had more time,” sang Megative’s Tim Fletcher (formerly of The Stills) on the band’s mournful reggae anthem More Time back in the summer. Check the video and you’ll see this multi-racial band channelling The Specials in their parkas, Fred Perrys and Sta-Prest slacks adopting a suitably haunting early 80s vibe. As

DJ JAZZY JEFF & THE FRESH PRINCE: Summertime (RHYTHM SCHOLAR remix) (2017) Free download

DJ JAZZY JEFF & THE FRESH PRINCE  Summertime RHYTHM SCHOLAR remixRhythm Scholar optimistically chooses Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s Summertime for his latest remix trick. Has he seen the forecast for tomorrow? Obviously not. Mind you – that’s over here while he’s over there where the North Korean Missile Crisis has been hotting up. Apparently, there nothing like the flash from an atomic blast to give you a tan. All that aside, here is a certain

A TRIBE CALLED QUEST: Bonita Applebum (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Remix) (2016) Free download

bonita-applebum-rhythm-scholar-remixRhythm Scholar works his magic on yet another hip-hop cut, indeed – yet another ATCQ cut – in this case his remix of Phife, Tip and co’s 1990 homage to the high-school fox of the title, Bonita Applebum. The vox and that sitar riff are all present and correct and the break is similar to the original albeit with more layers. After that though we’re off to the land of 80s soul with sparse piano

TOOTS & THE MAYTALS: Funky Kingston (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM Remix) (2016) Free download

Funky Kingston Rocknrolla Soundsystem TootsRating: ★★★★★ Not another rework of Toots & The Maytals’ Funky Kingston – the massive and hugely influential title track of 1972 LP Funky Kingston? The much-sampled, much-covered and indeed much-remixed Funky Kingston? Yes, that one. The very same. You done? Good – now shut-up and listen. Rocknrolla Soundsystem don’t do wack remixes and this one finds them bumping the

NOTES FLOATS feat. KILMATIK: Cheers (Prod. SALMAN KUSHDI) (2016) Free download + remix

Cheers Notes Floats KilmatikI’m not sure this quite qualifies as a ‘posse cut’ what with said posse consisting of just Austin emcees Notes Floats and Kilmatik but all is forgiven as the two trade ATCQ-style flows over a chilled jazzy beat created by the splendidly-named Salman Kushdi. Actually, the latter better watch out – if he carries on like this he might be facing a phat-wa. Cheers then – the latest drop from the

SWING NINJAS: My Belle (COCKNEY NUTJOB remix) (2016)

My Belle Swing Ninjas Cockney NutjobLike this version of Swing NinjasMy Belle? That’s because Cockney Nutjob‘s got the ill communication – mainly because he plumps for using a bit of Funkadelic’s You’ll Like It Too break to give the electro-swing original a little bit of funk. This version is one of the recent winners of the My Belle remix comp. and the stoke from that plus the fact that Mr Nutjob as just passed
