Rock (Unplugged) 7" Japanese Import
Remarkably, ‘Rock (Unpluged)’, DJ Spinna‘s collaboration with the Tortured Soul Band, is now 20 years old.
Originally released by BBE on a now sought-after seven-inch, the cut adds tight, on-point scratches and sample trickery from Spinna to a languid, hot-stepping jazz-funk workout laden with loose-limbed drum breaks, warming bass, spacey synths and fantastic horn arrangements.
Over on the flip you’ll find a fresh re-edit of 2003 album track ‘All Up On It’, a more laidback chunk of scratch-sporting Hammond-funk that’s as deep, jazzy and warming as they come.
Whether you’re a dusty-fingered hip-hop head or a fiery funk enthusiast, you need this in your life.
