SLICK RICK: Children’s Story (RHYTHM SCHOLAR 70s True Crime Streetmix) Free Download

Rating: ★★★★★ Now here’s a little something that needs to be heard – a stupid fresh remix of Slick Rick’s cautionary gangster tale Children’s Story by master remixer Rhythm Scholar. The original is an ’88 classic which despite the accelerating use of samples at the time, still featured drum machine beats and a replayed bassline from Bob James’ Nautilus. Rhythm Scholar on the other hand re-

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

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

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

DE LA SOUL:  What's More (RHYTHM SCHOLAR One Of These Eyes Remix) - Free downloadIt’s been how long since De La Soul’s 3 Feet High And Rising came out? Turns out someone else they made an impression on all those years ago, besides the monkey, is remix junkie Rhythm Scholar who takes the road less travelled with this edit by plucking ‘blink and you miss it’ non-album cut What’s More from B-side obscurity. Not only that but he liberates the lyrics from the constraints

You can call it the Halloween Rhythm Scholar Past To Present Fearmix if you like – he

A TRIBE CALLED QUEST: 1nce Again (RHYTHM SCHOLAR AtariFunk 8-Bit Remix)

The summer holidays are over, a new cycle of academic rigor begins again and what better time to welcome back Rhythm Scholar, eh students? And his role this term is both to (re)familiarise you with the classics and experiment with creating something new from said classics. Now then, what’s all that bleeping? I do hope someone hasn’t got a phone out. Oh it’s you Mr Scholar – sorry I

CHIC: Good Times (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Remix)

CHIC:  Good Times (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Remix)Back in 1979, Chic weren’t best pleased at Sugarhill Gang’s unauthorised sampling of Good Times – even though it wasn’t actually sampled but re-played. Now of course there’s a list as long as both your arm of tracks which have either sampled or replayed this legendary disco nugget, so who knows what the band would make of the Good Times Rhythm Scholar Remix. Of course

BILL WITHERS: Use Me (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Mo Funk Remix) Free download

BILL WITHERS:  Use Me (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Mo Funk Remix) Free downloadIt takes a brave soul (or a presumptive one) to add funk to a cut by soul legend Bill Withers – in this case his second biggest Stateside hit Use Me – but such is the claim in the title of Rhythm Scholar’s Mo Funk remix. Happily, there is no hubris from RS who capably sidesteps any egregious rerub pitfalls and engineers a rhythm n bottom-end, chunked-up re-version whilst

DE LA SOUL: Pain (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Heart Attack Remix)(2017) Free download

Not to mention a little bit of De La’s turn on Oliver’s Heart
