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.
The Soopastole label have pulled out all the stops again by bringing us Myra Barnes and Barbara Gwen for this limited-run 7”. Soul sensation Myra’s ‘The Message From The Soul Sisters’ is an absolute classic to treasure from the golden era. Barbara Gwen also brings the best of the best with ‘Right On’. Only 300 copies made so be quick!
FORMAT INFORMATION7" Info: Limited to 300 copies.
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!
DJ Soopasoul has handpicked two of the finest funk/jazz songs from far and wide to edit them with a twist. Kool & The Gang and Aretha Franklin never sounded so funky. There are only 250 copies ever made so it’s very limited and will with no doubt fly off the shelves.
FORMAT INFORMATIONLtd 7" Info: Red vinyl, limited to 250 copies.
Johnny Pate / Bobby Womack
Shaft In Africa / Across 110th Street
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.
STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: For their 11th edition Soopastole bring us four twists on an all time classic, Run DMC’s schoolyard smash “Peter Piper”. Aint’ no school like the old school folks.
