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

TOM CARUANA: Inner Space - Free downloadRating: ★★★★★ Blimey – don’t sleep – a massive new Tom Caruana hip-hop mash-up LP has just landed as the producer pairs a host of MCs with beats crafted from the discography of mighty Krautrock pioneers Can – a.k.a. Inner Space – hence the name of this monster. And it is a monster – thirty-six cuts featuring a host of underground legends, many of whom sent

WARREN G & NATE DOGG: Regulate (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Funk For Days Remix) Free download

WARREN G & NATE DOGG: Regulate (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Funk For Days Remix) Free downloadThought Warren G & Nate Dogg’s most famous cut had been utterly rinsed on the remix front? Think again. To celebrate a quarter century of Regulate, the one and only Rhythm Scholar has gone buck wild on the funk samples front and re-regulated things with a full clip of samples from the likes of Edwin Starr, Stevie Wonder, The Blackbyrds along with – er – ‘nu-skool breaks’ commando FreQ

JURASSIC 5: What’s Golden (TOY BEATS remix) Free download

JURASSIC 5:  What's Golden (TOY BEATS remix) Free downloadIt’s been over a month since the last free download on MB but never fear for Toy Beats is here neither balling nor shot-calling but taking it back to What’s Golden. That’s right, we break this extended period of musical privation with TB’s rerub of the biggest track off the mighty Jurassic 5’s 2002 LP Power In Numbers. Now fifteen bpms faster than the original, the track finds Zaakir

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

THE TEMPTATIONS: Ball Of Confusion (BASEMENT FREAKS remix) Free download

THE TEMPTATIONS: Ball Of Confusion (BASEMENT FREAKS remix) Free downloadAnyone familiar with The Temptations’ funky psych-soul single Ball Of Confusion from 1970 will know two things about it. Firstly, that it provides a lyrical commentary on a society in turmoil and secondly, it is such an epic track it would take balls of steel to remix. What manner of remixer would dare? Well, it seems that someone who doesn’t baulk at such a challenge is a certain George

KIBOSH: Pocky Way - Free downloadIt’s been a bit of a week for party breakbeat releases and here’s yet another – Kibosh’s Pocky Way Scour Freemix remix thingy of The Meters’ Hey Pocky A-Way. The original came out on the Rejuvenation LP bang in the middle of the New Orleans legends’ glorious original eight album run between 1969 and 1977 and was a loose mid-tempo groove dripping with sub-tropical bayou
