A couple of brand new cuts by DJ J Rocc of the World Famous Beat
Junkies – his first (we think) effort for Stones Throw! "Play This (One)" is the kind of record that made DJs like Shadow and Cut Chemist saints of the sampler – capital F Funky drums all over the track, plus a nice vocal sample from some weird instructional LP, all flowing into some tasty bonus beat
s. The flip "Junkies Pick" is just as hot – a tight instrumental drenched in funky horn, drum, and organ samples, plus some serious JB shouts, grunts, and soul claps. This track could fit as the backing for just about anything on Soul Fire or Daptone – nothing but hard, soulful super funky beat
s. It features a great cover with J Rocc and others disguised behind old LP covers of Just Ice, Frank Lowe, King Crimson, Ruben Wilson and others – as if we didn't already know the man has good taste!
