About this item

Fifteen!!! Seemingly set on making me feel old, Magic Wand drop a new batch of edits on our azz, calling in the services of Osmose, Sweetooth, Baz Bradley and Mushrooms Project for some slanky fun. 

Osmose takes a break from Smokecloud duties to deliver a suitably stoned jame on the A1, pitching a disco loop down to qualuude tempo, then dipping into his bag of Balxplo style vocal samples to round out the kind of beatdown jam we were hammering in 2010. Sweetooth (me neither) make their vinyl debut on the A2 with a hydraulic boogie / cinematic italo cover of Joni's Hissing hit "Edith & The Kingpin", turning out something frankly glorious, and utterly unexpected for a guy who looks like Lee Mack and a gal with top notch disco hair. (I don't usually go in for look-a-like quips, but our internet is patchy today, so I'm just going off the Discogs image. Might not even be them)

Bounce along to the B-side and Baz Bradley seeks out the sunset with a super loopy re-stretch of an Italian AOR jam, complete with ascendant sequences, female vocals and Fleetwood Mac guitars. All that remains is for Mushrooms Project to go full on swamp funk with an Afro-cosmic stomper comprised solely of clattering polyrhythms and synth weirdness. My kind of thing really.


A1. Osmose - Pour Myself
A2. Sweetooth - Edith & The Kingpin Remake
B1. Baz Bradley - Something In The Night (Piano Edit)
B2. Buyu (Mushrooms Project Edit)
