Dynamite X – James Brown Remixes

CD (Item 486491) Couch (Austria), 2007 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock



This set's the reason they waited awhile to find a final resting place for James Brown – because the mixes here are certainly enough to have him turning in his grave! The set's a European extrapolation of grooves originally laid down by The Godfather back in the day – remixes that take the best bits, beats, and basslines from older classics, and rework them strongly into more contemporary numbers for the dancefloor. Overall, the approach is very quirky and playful – and the tracks are usually at a tempo that's faster than the more familiar originals by James – at a pace that's similar to the Japanese Soul Source remix project from years back. Titles include "Cold Sweat (Captain Funk dry mix)", "Sex Machine (Readymade jazz defector)", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose (dZihan & Kamien rmx)", "Call Me Super Bad (Cay Taylan rmx)", "Funky Drummer (Listen To The Muro mix)", "Sunny (Funkmaster JB vs Funkmaster JS hardboiled rmx)", "Soul Power (jungle funk mix)", "Call Me Super Bad (Cornelius rework)", and "Get On The Good Foot (Mr Drunk rmx)".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
