Sidney featuring Black White N CoLet's Break (voc, inst dub) ... 12-inch
Carrere (France), 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $1.99
A nice little break track – the kind that we might have found embarrasing, circa 1991 – but which sounds pretty nice as an old school number these days. More beats than lyrics, as you might expect. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Skinny BoysWeightless ... CD
Warlock/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $11.99
The Skinny Boys may be weightless, but they've got a nicely heavy sound that often comes as much from their own human beat box work as it does from sampled beats and other instrumentation!

✨✧ Slum VillageDetroit Deli – A Taste Of Detroit ... CD
Barak/Capitol, 2004. Used ... $5.99
Slum Village returns with their most rugged album ever! The Slum still hasn't duplicated the particularly groovy style of the classic Fantastic, Vol 2, and to be honest, the crew is really the same in name only.

A great pairing of Bay Area hip hop legends Souls Of Mischief and producer-composer Adrian Younge – akin to the cinematic hip hop funk productions by Younge for Ghostface Killah and others – but it's also the tightest, most focused work we've heard from the Souls in a while!
