Back in 2014, Kenny Dope's Kay-Dee label released a sumptuous 7" box set featuring killer re-edits of the breakbeats and groove tracks that were originally recorded for Charlie Ahearn's pioneering 1983 hip-hop movie Wild Style. Since that box now goes for serious money online, the Masters at Work producer has decided to reissue two of the set's most potent rework. On the A-side you'll find his version of Fab 5 Freddy's "Down By Law", where impressively deep and woozy synths ride a low-slung post-punk bassline and punchy funk break. On the flip, the Dope one serves up a DJ-friendly extension of Grand Wizzard Theodore's "Subway Beat", where woozy Moog lines wrap themselves around a snappy drum machine beat and rubbery slap bassline.
