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

SNOOP DOGG: Drop It Like It’s Hot (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Pastel Pimp remix)

SNOOP DOGG: Drop It Like It's Hot (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Pastel Pimp remix)Pastel Pimp remix? I like the sound of that. And what more appropriate title could there be for a remix of Snoop’s planet-sized hit which replaces the original beat with a seventies-sampling frankenstein’s monster of a groove that nabs bits of soundtrack from The Mack, Carwash, Magnum Force and Rollerball? I like the sound of that too. Swirling wah-wah, rolling funk drums, piano
