Warren Lee - "Underdog Backstreet" (DJ Platurn remix) (3:53)
Review: Five years have passed since Superjock launched the Nola Breaks series of DJ-focused funk reworks. Here the New Orleans-based imprint offers up installment number nine, handing over the reins to local legend Professor Shorthair and Bay Area scratcher DJ Platurn. The former handles the A-side, wrapping the Enticers' fuzzy funk gem "Thief" - as sampled by Mos' Def - in fat new breaks and tight scratches. On the flip, DJ Platurn has his wicked way with Warren Lee classic "Underdog Backstreet", wisely extending the intro and outro breaks while also adding some tasty new samples.
Review: Pure brass bedlam from the long-standing, Grammy-winning, heavy-hitting Rebirth Brass Band: "I Like It Like That" and "Do It Again" are taken from the band's hugely successful Rebirth Of New Orleans album and have never seen the light of 45" before... Until now. The former is hotter than a Mardi in July with a party-rearing hook you'll be humming into the 20s. The latter takes more street corner momentum as the band put down their horns and chant like their lives depends on it. It doesn't get more powerful than this. Super limited too - only 500 copies to be pressed.
