BOMBSTRIKES: Funk N’ Beats Vol. 9 – JIM SHARPCovid cases might be on the rise again in 2021 but the Bombstrikes label nonetheless unleashes a second salvo of Funk N Beats to make up for last year’s absence and for Vol. 9 it’s the turn of Dusty Donuts crew member Jim Sharp to curate a twenty-two track selection of funky drum break-powered party ordnance that’s arguably slightly more hip-hop oriented than either of the last two

ALI B: Swing It 45Bombstrikes’ hugely successful 45s series continues apace with the latest instalment arriving next week and featuring remixes of cuts by label stalwart Ali B.

DUSTY DONUTS 20: Feeling Good (JIM SHARP & GOCE edit)/ Old Digger (JIM SHARP edit)(Vinyl 7″)

DUSTY DONUTS 20It’s a bit of special one for the second part of Dusty Donuts’ double 45 release announcement today for the piece of wax in question is the label’s twentieth drop! That’s right Dusty Donuts 20 – and who better to helm that than Jim Sharp – the man responsible for the first ever Dusty Donuts release? No-one, that’s who! Er – though, come to think of it, maybe they could get DJ Goce to help

JIM SHARP: Gangsta Walk 7″ (2017)

JIM SHARP:  Gangsta Walk 7Rating: ★★★★★ Dusty Donuts regular Jim Sharp branches out on his own for new booty seven inch Gangsta Walk and it’s a certified floor filler. The A-side plunders Mark Ronson’s massive dancefloor hip-hop banger Ooh Wee for Nate Dogg and Trife’s vocal bits and adds posthumously-released Nate Dogg ‘pella Gangsta Walk over a beat concocted from the same Boney M loop that Ronson used

DUSTY DONUTS 11: Risin’ To The Top (JIM SHARP edit)/ Mary Jane (JIM SHARP’s Buddha edit) (2017)

DUSTY DONUTS 11:  Risin' To The Top (JIM SHARP edit)/ Mary Jane (JIM SHARP's Buddha edit)Like cream, the Dusty Donuts label rises to the top again with a richly smooth re-drummed edit of Keni Burke’s slick slab of eighties silk – er –
Risin’ To The Top as Jim Sharp cynically targets anything female with a pulse. Then he goes in for the kill with another re-drummed re-version – the bass-heavy ‘Buddha edit’ of that classic seventies musical personification of marijuana as a sexy lady, Mary

DUSTY DONUTS 10: Funky Thang (MARC HYPE & NAUGHTY NMX Underground edit)/ 90% Hangin Out (JIM SHARP edit)(2017) + Dusty Donuts 10 Anthology Mix

My Thang 90 Hangin Out NMX Dusty Donuts 10Marc Hype’s gang are straight back at it for the new year with Dusty Donuts 10 – cannily catering to both b-boy and ‘ladies’ night’ dancefloor appetites. The former is amply sustained by the Donuts crew’s stock-in-trade of mashing up originals and tracks that sample them – in this case by chucking James Brown’s vocal off My

DUSTY DONUTS 9: No Love In The City (NAUGHTY NMX Refix)/ Too Much Hustle (NAUGHTY NMX & JIM SHARP edit)

naughty-nmx-jim-sharp-dusty-donuts-9I hope you’re peckish because Dusty Donuts have been frying up more ear-snacking goodness and are nearly ready to serve Dusty Donuts 9. This time neither Naughty NMX nor Jim Sharp have found it too much hassle to track down the sample-source of Jay Z’s Can’t Knock The Hustle and do a super smooth lady-friendly splice of both Beyonce’s bloke’s track and the Marcus Miller original entitled Too Much Hustle. Large as this is

DUSTY DONUTS 6: Weapons Of Choice Vol. 1 ft MARC HYPE & JIM SHARP (2015)

Weapons Of Choice Vol 1 Dusty DonutsDusty Donuts switch things up for the next drop with heavy battle weaponry on one side from Marc Hype and two edits (and a musical history lesson) on the flip from Jim Sharp. That’ll be as many dj ready vocal snippets and shout-outs as you can fit onto one side of a 45 on the A-side (clue: it’s quite a few) plus Make A Livin Break (re)constructed from the two key sample
