DJ SHADOW feat. DE LA SOUL: Rocket Fuel

DJ SHADOW feat. DE LA SOUL: Rocket FuelRating: ★★★★★ It’s been a while since DJ Shadow got any coverage on MB but if he’s going to make tracks like Rocket Fuel with De La Soul then it might happen a little more often. The single finds the West and East coast legends unite to launch a windmilling, hook ‘n’ scratch-filled slice of b-boy hip-hop powered by Johnny Jenkins’ Gilded Splinters break. Not the newfangled

DE LA SOUL:  What's More (RHYTHM SCHOLAR One Of These Eyes Remix) - Free downloadIt’s been how long since De La Soul’s 3 Feet High And Rising came out? Turns out someone else they made an impression on all those years ago, besides the monkey, is remix junkie Rhythm Scholar who takes the road less travelled with this edit by plucking ‘blink and you miss it’ non-album cut What’s More from B-side obscurity. Not only that but he liberates the lyrics from the constraints

DE LA SOUL: Breakadawn (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Brand New Day remix) (2015)

Rhythm Scholar De La Soul BreakadawnRhythm Scholar continues a quality run of remixes with his latest – a rework of De La Soul’s single Breakadawn off their Buhloone Mindstate album. Prince Paul’s fairly sparse original production (despite at least four samples) is switched up for a more layered beat and a slightly faster tempo. Sample-wise, the Bar-Kays and Smokey Robinson remain while MJ and The Pointer

DE LA SOUL: Ring Ring Ring (RHYTHM SCHOLAR remix)(2015) Free download

Ring Ring Ring remix Rhythm ScholarHey how ya doin’? Anyone for a De La Soul Ring, Ring, Ring remix from Rhythm Scholar that takes a – well – what you might call ‘scholastic’ approach to the sample-magpie technique used by Prince Paul on the original. RS unpicks the many elements that made up the original and makes the most of the disco-fied ones – like Fat Larry’s Band if you want to throw a name around so you can act

DJ PLATURN: So This Is De La Heaven Pt. 2 (2014)

De La Heaven Part 2 DJ PlaturnIt’s not the first time it’s been done, even for De La Soul and even by DJ Platurn himself (So This Is De La Heaven Pt.1 came out eleven years ago) but tracking down the samples used by a hip-hop band and creating a mix with them has rarely sounded as good as this. You could say that Platurn runs rings around his rivals. The rings of Platurn, if you will. Thank you, I’m here all week. If you need

SMOOVE: Keepin The Marley Faith (2012) Free download

Big freebie here from ‘known’ remixer Smoove as he blends De La Soul’s Could You Be Loved-sampling Keepin The Faith track with Bob’s original in Keepin The Marley Faith – a blend that I would say is virtually certain to be loved by all and sundry. He says he made it for his ‘personal use’ but it went down so well that he’s decided to share it with us all. Lucky it’s free eh? Could be construed as
