JOHN LEE HOOKER: Boom Boom (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) Free downloadBoom Boom! No, Basil Brush is not in the area but rather inveterate edit artists, Rocknrolla Soundsystem who ‘woke up this morning’ to take on the 1961 single from the mighty John Lee Hooker. Well, I say ‘this morning’ though obviously they did spend a bit of time cooking this one up. Whereas the original was a lively twelve bar blues stomp praising the way a certain fox walked and

JERRY JONES – Compared To What (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM Edit)

JERRY JONES - Compared To What (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM Edit) We’re not even a month into the new year and the good shit is rolling in thick and fast. Here’s the latest nugget in the form of a Rocknrolla Soundsystem re-edit of the title track from Compared To What – the rare Studio One album recorded by Philly soul man Jerry Jones back in 1971. With full respect to the original, the RRSS boys unobtrusively extend the intro and beef-up

MJ:  Thriller The Funk of 40 000 Years (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM Edit)(2017) Free downloadHello – pictures of fruity young ladies with tattoos? You can tell this is a Rocknrolla Soundsystem edit before you hear or read anything about it – even if the hottie in question is all dolled-up like Baron Samedi. Turns out RRS have done a rework of MJ’s cheesy Halloween classic, Thriller and not the first one this month either – since this edit follows Hot Border Special’s cover. ‘Blimey – what’s that

ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM: Going Back To Cali/ Jolene How You Want It (2017)

Rocknrolla Soundsystem Going Back To CaliRating: ★★★★★ Edit kings Rocknrolla Soundsystem trump all previous efforts with this massive double-A side featuring two mutant mashups. On the one hand you’ve got Jolene How You Want It which splices 2Pac, Dolly Parton and a certain famous Jackson (no, really) for thumping nu-disco boogie-hop action and then, just when thought you knew where things were at, they flip the script

ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM: Shakey Ground (2017)

Long known for their respectful (not to mention classy) free download edits, Rocknrolla Soundsystem now turn up with no fewer than three respectful and classy cheeky versions of funk and soul classics on NYC label Alpaca Edits. What you get is a nearly four-to-the-floor take on the release’s title track by psychedelic funkers The Temptations, a more fluidly four-to-the-floor re-

ROEBUCK ‘POPS’ STAPLES: Father Father (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) (2016) Free download

father-father-roebuck-pops-staples-rocknrolla-soundsystemRocknrolla Soundsystem have one of those – ‘ooh – this’d sound better if it was a bit faster with a bit more drum leverage, tweaked bass, maybe some extra guitar’ moments with the blues-gospel title cut off Roebuck ‘Pops’ Staples final album. A remix idea in other words. And don’t they execute it well? So much so, that the patriarch of the Staple Singers sounds right at home on the

OASIS: To Be Where There Is Life (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) (2016) Free download

rocknrolla-soundsystem-oasis-editThose with long memories might remember back in 2008 when Noel Gallagher expressed outrage at a hip-hop headline act (Jay-Z) for Glastonbury some months before releasing an album (Dig Out Your Soul) to which the closest musical parallel in the Oasis discography was 2000’s Standing on the Shoulder (sic) of Giants. Which was an album that those with even longer memories might remember

TOOTS & THE MAYTALS: Funky Kingston (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM Remix) (2016) Free download

Funky Kingston Rocknrolla Soundsystem TootsRating: ★★★★★ Not another rework of Toots & The Maytals’ Funky Kingston – the massive and hugely influential title track of 1972 LP Funky Kingston? The much-sampled, much-covered and indeed much-remixed Funky Kingston? Yes, that one. The very same. You done? Good – now shut-up and listen. Rocknrolla Soundsystem don’t do wack remixes and this one finds them bumping the

MECHELL NDEGEOCELLO: Come Smoke My Herb (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM)(2016)

Come Smoke My Herb Rocknrolla SoundsystemFeeling a bit stressed? What you need is Rocknrolla Soundsystem‘s blissed-out beat re-tweak of Come Smoke My Herb by neo-soul, comfort woman herself – Meshell Ndeogeocello. Consider it less a track than the very culmination of a club-night where Morpheus is the dj. Which is to say it’s not unlike the musical equivalent of being wrapped in a duvet whilst being conveyed

LEROY BURGESS: Stranger (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) (2015)

Stranger Rocknrolla Soundsystem Leroy BurgessCertainly no strangers to a remix, RocknRolla Soundsystem here tastefully address Leroy Burgess’s 1983 cut – er – Stranger – a track that could only only exist in a post Michael Jackson’s Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough. Where the original had the simplest of basic eighties funk beats however, this re-version provides a pulsing bit of heavily syncopated artillery and does away with
