TUNE OF THE DAY – BEN E. CHALI KWELI “LOCK SHIT DOWN” (MR DORIS & D*FUNK’S SUPERNATURAL REWORK) – 2DOGS RECORDINGS
Sister label of KAT and KAT45 recordings. Beats for street rather then disco for the dance-floor.
The Streetchoir edit of this Ben E King classic Supernatural was massive for us last year so our ears were turned immediately when this mash up was sent our way. Gonna be spinning this with love.
Release #3 from the 2Dogs stable brings you another 7″ this time via beat aficionados’ Mr Doris (We Love, Ibiza eclectic resident DJ) & D-Funk…
Kicking things off is ‘Lock Shit Down’, a gem of a mash up which takes the vox from Chali 2na ft. Talib Kweli and lays down over the all time classic, ‘Supernatural Thing’ by soulpremo, Ben E King.
On the flip is ‘9th Wonder, a good old fashioned party Hip Hopper of a tune which skilfully (and lovingly) underpins things with the wondrous ‘Impeach The President’ by The Honeydrippers then adds vocals stripped from ‘9th Wonder’ by the Digable Planets resulting in a turnout of pure Funk goodness.
