SOOPASTOLE

More from top-drawer rework merchant DJ Soopasoul, whose cheeky revisions on his Soopastole label are consistently on point and dancefloor-focused. For his latest trick, the long-serving DJ/producer has decided to apply his magic to one of the greatest disco records of all time and a "foundation record" of the hip-hop scene: Chic classic "Good Times". The A-side edit sounds like it has been created using the multi-track parts, as dubbed-out vocal sections ride stripped-back grooves and portions that variously showcase the track's original strings, Nile Rodgers' guitars and Bernard Edwards' killer bassline. The flipside "Part 2" version is similarly minded but more like a disco dub in feel and execution, with the maestro drenching vocal sections in delicious amounts of delay.

Aretha Franklin / Jimmy Bo Horne

Respect / Dance Across The Floor (DJ Soopasoul Edits)

DJ Soopasoul shows some R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the Queen of Soul maxxing out the drums, extending the breaks and bringing a whole load of danceability to this perenial soul favourite, while retaining all those shout along vocals and groovy, doo wop flavours. Flip it for a tight rework of Jimmy Bo Horne's Bboy friendly "Dance Across The Floor", which extends those raw funk instrumental breaks into a highly mixable / flare-able arrangement. Get yer lino out!

Bobby Bird / Lyn Collins

Hot Pants - I'm Coming, Coming, I'm Coming / Mama Feelgood

Funk never sounded so good! Bobby Bird and Lyn Collins are side by side on this upbeat 7” brought to us by Soopastole. ‘Hot Pants I'm Coming, Coming, I'm Coming’ which is quite the title, can make anyone get up and boogie. ‘Mama Feelgood’ is also just as soulful with powerful vocal game from Lyn!

Labi Siffre / Banbarra

I Got The / Shack Up

If you needed some funky disco tunes if your life then look no further, Labi Siffre and Banbarra have got your back. ‘I Got Your Back’ has that irresistible catchiness that has turned it into a pure classic. Flash forward to the B-Side, ‘Shack Up’ is just an essential funk track, instantly recognisable and an absolute banger!


Johnny Pate and Bobby Womack bring us this hot repress of edits from the legendary tracks, Shaft in Africa and Across 110th Street on the label, Soopastole. Soul classic ‘Shaft in Africa’ you can never go wrong with, it’ll be in demand until the end of days. On the flip side ‘Across 110th Street’ brings the vibes with Womack’s skills. This is limited so don’t hesitate!

In every collection there's some space left for a classic, no matter if you've already had it for years or it's just released in a different format. True? With #11 of the Soopastole edits series comes the 1986 Run-DMC classic "Peter Piper" in 4 different mixes. The "Raw Remix" cuts the track back a little for extra Nautilus action then snaps your neck with the B-boy breaks of the "Beatapella". Over on the flip the "Breaks Mix" serves up Run and DMC's unique bars over a full fat funk beat while a scratch friendly acappella brings the curtain down.
