Record of the Week

Paranoid London - Suck A Dick [Paranoid London Records]

This one already feels like a classic after hearing it in Paranoid London sets for years, so it was great to see that the sample has been cleared and it's finally able to be cut to wax.

Paranoid London add their own signature acid line to the original DJ Milton sample, to which Mutado Pintado builds the perfect call and response vocal.

Classic of the Week

Emilio Pasquez - Do It Again Emilio [WEA]

I'm not sure the A side of this one, "Sounds From The Pink Sandbox", has aged all that well, what with the samples of the 60s Batman series. However, the B side, "Do It Again Emilio", strips all that back and turns up the resonance knob, resulting in an overlooked classic that still sounds great on the dancefloor almost three and a half decades later.

One More

Prom Night & Brynjolfur - Freakfunk (Hot Mix) [Prom Night]

It's all in the name for this one, super funky tune from a couple of months back and one of the standout tunes of 2022 for me.
