Next up from DJ Pnutz is this nifty little vinyl 7″ which features the lead cut off last year’s rather splendid 16 Psyche LP – Pretty Good For A Girl – and provides an object lesson in how what to do with funky drum breaks, horn stabs and slow-burning organ chords. While clocking in at a nippy nearly 120 bpm on the bpm-ometer, it’s mood is arguably better suited to the soundtrack than b-boying so if it’s the mat, beanie and Pumas you want to break out head for the even better flip – a brand new cut entitled Play That Beat Mrs DJ. And play she does immediately dropping the latin-funk drums and pulses of bass before bringing in scorching organ and horn stabs. You know it makes sense.
