About this item

Back again with a pair of edits in the lower BPM spectrum, Jim Sharp takes us on a regional tour of the South. Side A, breaks down then reassembles an early West Coast gangsta hit, Dopeman. Us-ing the OG drums and extending the breaks, this will rock dance floors and bass bins alike. The B side, takes us to the Dirty South with 808 kicks, sprinkler Hi-Hats and sweet Soul music. I Chose You Could be dropped at a bounce party or a wedding. Willie Hutch sounds like an International Player with the revamped construction and drums. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Jim Sharp does his thing for Soul By The Pound here, breaking down and building up NWA classic "Dopeman" as a bass heavy, break-led beast then recreating that killer beat from UGK's "Int'l Players Anthem" on the flip.
