About this item

Dynamite Cuts are back with another limited 7" release from Tarika Blue, the sublime fusion outfit who released two stunning LPs back in 76 and 77 on the famed Chiriucuro imprint. On the A-side we have the DJ favourite "Dream Flower", a gorgous slive of mellow jazz taken from the mega rare, self titled LP "Tarika Blue". Often sampled in hip hop (relatively recently by J Cole), this was most famously flipped by J Dilla for Erykah Badu's "Didn't Cha Know", who made expert use of that brilliant bassline and plangeant guitar note. On the flipside, "Jimi" takes a ganja leaf out of the Funkadelic book, macking out in "Maggot Brain" mode with a heavy guitar solo from Ryo Kawasaki.
