Here’s a track guaranteed to be played at the beggarman’s disco as Irish funky breaks merchant Johnnypluse brings the Dole Dance. JP’s original goes for a nice organic, old school, breakbeat instrumental sound with a big snare that wouldn’t have sounded out of place in an early Coldcut set while remixes come courtesy of Hayz and BSide. Hayz gets his squelchy electro on for those who laugh in the face of anything that even faintly resembles an organic sound while I rather favour Bside’s liberation of the piano-based middle eight to become the basis of the track (rather than it’s interlude) and wobbling-up of the b-line – hey – it’s ghettofunk time everybody! Coming to a dancefloor near you soon.
(Out 30 January on Bulabeats)

(PRESS RELEASE) Ireland’s Johnnypluse drops his first single from his long player “ How Much From The Monkey. ‘Dole Dance’ is a super-charged funk bomb with a serious catchy piano hook, some sexy horns n bass and some old school vocal samples. Nufunk superstar HAYZ gives it a nice little bit of funk and keeps the ladies happy, and Gettofunk beatmaster BSIDE injects a nice bit of bassy funk into the tune to keep the floor rockin. This package is serious battle weapon.
