Rating: Good times – Dusty Donuts 18 is on the way! As is their wont, the DD crew have been busy tracking down classic hip-hop sampled sources and then re-imagining the original tracks with the way they were sampled in mind and – hey presto – you have neither a re-build of the rap tracks nor an edit of the originals but something in between. Jim Dunloop’s Espíritu Do Rio (Brazil Wave Mix) gets it on boom-bap style with the
various samples on Ugly Duckling cut Rio De Janeiro, while Dunloop (again) and GRZLY Adams Walk In The Shade of both Rachel Sweet and The Beatnuts but they do it fine style. You might be all locked down but it’ll be a party wherever this bad boy is played!
(Out 10 July on Dusty Donuts)
