DJ MAARS vs. TOM SHOWTIME: Summertime/ Jump Around (2015 Re-master) (2015) Ltd. red vinyl 7″

Summertime Jump Around Maars ShowtimeRating: ★★★★★ There’s still room for a few more epic reggae mashups this year it seems (despite the space taken up by Cockney Nutjob’s excellent recent Heads Boppin’ EP) as DJ Maars and Tom Showtime flex their mettle again. This new one grafts Mos Def’s Summertime over the riddim for BB Seaton’s version of the Gershwin-penned – er – Summertime and enlists Seaton vocals on the hook with a dash of Finlay Quaye. Why – it’s the sort of thing that deserves a red vinyl seven inch release! But what to put on the flip? How about a 2015 re-master of oldie mash Jump Around? I think so. Boom!
(Out 7 November on Easy Now Recordings)
