BRONX SLANG: The Bronx Kill Mixtape (Free download)

BRONX SLANG: The Bronx Kill MixtapeRating: ★★★★★ Having judged the middle of an ongoing pandemic not quite the best time to be releasing an LP, Bronx Slang – a.k.a. Jerry Beeks and Ollie Miggs – nevertheless unleash more hip-hop commentary from the frontline with their straight dope Bronx Kill Mixtape. And it is a veritable verbal broadside against the racist hate, oppressive brutality and catastrophic

WILLIE WEST: Fairchild (ZEMERALD DJ edit) – Free download

WILLIE WEST: Fairchild (ZEMERALD DJ edit) - Free downloadIt seems like a long minute since there was a free download on the ground at MB – and an equally long minute since we saw anything from Zemerald – a man with a good ear for a funk edit if ever there was one. In fact the last time was four years ago (!) and even then he was saying he didn’t have the time for music that he once did. Tell the monkey about it. Happily our man’s found the time to

JIMI NEEDLES: Dean Town Come Down (Vulf.Paak Boot) Free downloadOf course you did catch Jimi Needles’ Vulfpeck/ Anderson Paak mash Dean Town Come Down a couple of years ago didn’t you? You didn’t!? Oh well, it’s your lucky day then! This bad boy is still doing the rounds and Needles is making a show of actively hawking it again in the hope of hoovering up any Rip Van DJs who slept on it the first time.

JOHN LEE HOOKER: Boom Boom (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) Free download

JOHN LEE HOOKER: Boom Boom (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) Free downloadBoom Boom! No, Basil Brush is not in the area but rather inveterate edit artists, Rocknrolla Soundsystem who ‘woke up this morning’ to take on the 1961 single from the mighty John Lee Hooker. Well, I say ‘this morning’ though obviously they did spend a bit of time cooking this one up. Whereas the original was a lively twelve bar blues stomp praising the way a certain fox walked and

THE TEMPTATIONS: Just My Imagination (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Daydream Mix) Free download

THE TEMPTATIONS: Just My Imagination (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Daydream Mix) Free downloadThe ever-reliable Rhythm Scholar returns with his latest remix – in this instance of The Temptations’ 1971 cut Just My Imagination. The original is a rather wafty, full orchestral affair with drums you can hardly hear that harked back to the band’s smoochy 1960s material rather than the dirty funk of their late 60s/ early 70s psychedelic soul efforts. Mr Scholar knows what’s good though so he

DJ MONEYSHOT: Party Favours – Free download

DJ MONEYSHOT: Party Favours - Free downloadRating: ★★★★★ DJ Moneyshot takes time off from all that Allergies business to drop a double freebie of fully paid-up old school hip-hop business with Party Favours. That’ll be two tracks then, not on 45 (though you’ll wish they were) with more block party bounce than Kool Herc and Flash on pogos in an inflatable castle. Man, that is a lot of bounce! Both the thumping Back Pumps and the looser Hit The Dancefloor dementedly stitch together the
