INNEREYEFULL: Remixed (2015)

Remixed Playground InnereyefullAfter the album of course (and not for the first time this week), the remix album. Enter Innereyefull, former dusty breaks merchant, still delivering stoner downtempo beats n breaks but now equally likely to go all dnb on your ass or funk things up enough for Craig Charles to take notice – though now via the medium of live instrumentation rather than samples.

PEDIGREE CUTS: Pedigree Cuts Remixed! (2013)

It’s that Pedigree Cuts lot again. No not the dog grooming service from County Durham – they’re hardly likely to put out a twenty-two strong remix compilation are they?

In fact this mainly consists of much of Skeewiff’s recent Man

GMF feat. AKIL THE MC: Remixed! (2012)

“Do whatever feels good to you. It’s cool/ For you to do whatever you want to just do,” raps former Jurassic 5 member Akil The MC on the original Grand Mother’s Funck version of Do (video below) – with admirable laissez-faire as his and the band’s work is taken off by Badboe and various nu-funky friends.
