DJAR ONE:  Rescue Me/ Bar-B-Q (Vinyl 745 soul edit/ re-works are bigger than ever right now and a man who always knows what’s good on that front is Le Havre’s Djar One who comes through with two biggies right here.

SUNSETSOUL: SunsetSplit EP – 2009 – review

Rating: ★★★★★

Typical. You start to despair of a lack of decent funky tunes and then loads come along at once. Here, Leipzig’s Sunsetsoul label continue a near flawless run of releases with the SunsetSplit EP, a four-tracker of ridiculous mash-ups. Funktomas splices Fontella Bass’s Motown classic Rescue Me together with the vocal remix of The Gravediggaz’ 1-800 Suicide boosting the bpms of this stoned early-nineties head-nodder way over the hundred mark and lyrically creating the musical equivalent of a bizarrely upbeat call to The Samaritans. Prosper & Badboe sort out a fuel-injected rinsing of 25 Miles that gets Edwin Starr all jiggy with Lil Mama and Shantisan does the crazy drum n bossa thing again on Aquela E Minha Menina by lighting a junglist fire under the asses of Os Mutantes. Then – just as you tire of muscular breaks – along comes Manjah with a chilled breakbeat dub rerub of The Supremes in My Dub Is Empty Without You. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
