DJ OONOPS: Oonops Drops Vol. 2

DJ OONOPS: Oonops Drops Vol. 2 Stand by for Oonops Drops Vol. 2, the second volume in a multi-genre compilation series from Brooklyn Radio’s DJ Oonops which comes out on Agogo Records at the end of the month. It seems our man spent more than a year putting the funk, soul, dub, jazz, beats and hip-hop encompassing double vinyl project together and you know with that level of time investment, there’s going to be a big pay-off.  Which is why you can expect most of the tracks included in the fourteen-deep set to consist of exclusives or first-time-on-vinyl business from an array of talent both better and lesser-known. These include a Manasseh dub remix of the Ce’Cil & Toddla T-featuring Make Up Your Mind from legends Coldcut and Soopasoul’s trip-hoppy remix of Chasing Shadows by John Turrell’s. What you want to particularly keep your eyes peeled for however are a dope cover of No Diggity from Texas funk outfit and MB favourites T Bird & The Breaks (currently, not to mention sadly, on indefinite hiatus), the trip-hop class of Tokyo Jazz Freak from 45 (a.k.a. Swing-O), Amy True’s blistering brass-drenched Save Urself featuring Nubya Garcia and the gorgeous jazzy dreaminess of closer Tibb’s Nightmare from Tibbs One.
(Out 27 September on Agogo Records)
