About this item

Killer shizzle here on a blink and you'll miss it 7" on the unknown Solo 500 imprint. On the A-side we get the B-side from the sole (soul) recording from Jimi Entley, a 2002 studio project from Portishead duo Geoff Barrow and Adrian Utley, which saw them get deep into the funk. Wonderfully flipped by Dilla for "Donuts" banger 'Geek Show', the OG is a masterpiece of blistering guitar, raw soul and heavy-hitting funk that could easily have passed for a "Black Moses" outtake. Flip it for classic Placebo cut "Humpty Dumpty", an immersive blend of insistent Rhodes, irresistible breaks, wah solos and simmering brass recreated for Dilla's "Love Jones".


Patrick says: Solo 500 open their account with pair of funk hits previously flipped by Dilla for some of his timeless productions. On the A-side we get Portishead pair Adrian Utley and Geoff Barrow in full funk mode, whilst the B-side brings us a classic cut from Euro funk heroes Placebo.
