Mr Boom has shown a keen ear for an edit for time now so it’s excellent news that he’s got himself onto vinyl and netted the A-side of Nola Breaks V7 with a remix of Ernie & The Top Notes’ clattering funk bomb Dap Walk. The result is a cut well over a minute longer than the original, with extra drums layered on and extended sections which include replacing the original’s fade with something a little more conducive to blending on the ones and twos. Boom indeed. Meanwhile, on the flip, Professor Shorthair grabs Skip Easterling’s funked-up Muddy Waters cover I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man by the short hairs and works his own magic with scratches, extensions and extra drum crunch. And if that’s not two good reasons why Superjock Records have dropped yet another NOLA Breaks bomb, I don’t know what is.
