James Brown still casts a long shadow over hip-hop, particularly the turntablist community. Even renowned diggers such as Jason 'J Rocc' Jackson keep returning to the Godfather of Soul's heavyweight, break-filled catalogue. Here, Jackson pays tribute by delivering two impeccable, Steinski style cut-ups of highlights from the great man's bulging catalogue. It's been done before, of course - see DJ Format's "Stealin' James" 12" from a few years back - but rarely with quite so much vim and vigour. Both "Part 1 & 2" and flipside "Part 5 & 6" hit the spot, whipping through classic JB breaks and samples at a furious rate. As a result, they should be considered essential DJ tools for party-rockin' DJs.
