  1. Art Blakey - "Stretching" (J Rocc edit) (3:43)
  2. Digable Planets - "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" (4:18)
Review: With a refreshed label design, the Originals series seems in no trouble of running out of steam any time soon as catalogue number 30 hones into view. The 29th rinky dinky Originals squares the focus on Art Blakey's "Stretching" with one of the world's best DJs, J Rocc, offering up a fine 45 treatment of the Jazz classic on the A Side. Representing the sample flip on the flip is Digable Planets and "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" which deftly pulled out the horns and bassline from Blakey's original and looped them up for what is now regarded as an early '90s hip hop classic.

  1. The Dynamic Corvettes - "Funky Music Is The Thing" (Mr Fantastic edit) (3:29)
  2. The D.O.C - "Lend Me An Ear" (3:20)
Review: The Originals label is on straight-up fire at the moment, coming through rough and ready with a whole heap of gorgeous disco reissues ready to be cranked-up by contemporary producers. "Funky Music Is The Thing" by The Corvettes, a funky-as-hell soul train, is beefed up by Mr Fantastic with a tidy little edit, whereas The D.O.C and their "Lend Me An Ear" hip-hop joint gets a nice touch-up of the modern B-Boys.

Funk
  1. Sly & The Family Stone - "Trip To Your Heart"
  2. LL Cool J - "Mama Said Knock You Out"
Review: The best thing about the Original series is it highlights just how ingenious many hip hop producers were in their implementation of sample source material. See this edition which pairs up "Trip To Your Heart" by Sly & The Family Stone with "Momma Said Knock You Out", the stone cold early '90s classic from LL Cool J. Listen to both tracks and it's clear Marley Marl uses only a smidgen of Sly's original, the "Ah, ah, ah" that is uttered harmoniously when the chorus arrives. The way he flipped it alongside elements of tracks from James Brown, Digital Underground, and The Chicago Gangsters is real proof of his genius. A great seven for the collection, no doubt.

Funk
  1. Maggie Thrett - "Soupy" (2:58)
  2. De La Soul - "Jenifer Taught Me" (3:51)
Review: Number 30 in the originals series highlights the link between Dynavoice Records and the Daisy Age hip hoppers who sampled many of the label's releases. We are of course talking about Posdnuos, Dave, and Maseo, aka De La Soul, with Originals wisely squaring attentions on the Northern Soul monster "Soup" by Maggie Thrett and the De La classic "Jenifa Taught Me" which featured ample sampleage. This Originals edition of "Soup" is the first time it's been available in the 7" format since it's initial release in 1965 and is the sort of cut you can drop in a funk jam and see the crowd melt. What more is there to say about "Jenifa Taught Me"? It's a classic mate!

Funk
  1. The Turtles - "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea" (Chief Rocca edit) (3:42)
  2. Steady B - "Serious" (BDP 12" remix) (4:28)
Review: 1968's "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea" is perhaps one of the greatest forgotten nuggets of pure breakbeatism, and the original by The Turtles dates back to 1968. The date isn't perhaps that surprising in relation to the sounds used and the quirkiness of the tune, but it's the fact that it sounds like straight-up hip-hop from early 80s NY; Chief Rocca aka J Rocc does a bit of editing on this version, but the meat and bones of the original are definitely there. Steady B features on the flip with a remix from BDP, and this one is a pure throwback hip-hop banger like they used to make them - think Run DMC but much more from the underground.
