And we are back with the 11th edition of Shir Khan’s Black Jukebox Series. This time Shir Khan has collected 3 heavy jams from Purple Disco Machine, Dayne S and Zoka. We didn’t do any promo for this one so far but it’s available in a few good recordstores now. A1 was played by Pete Tong at BBC Radio 1 last week and it’s compilation of the week at DMC World.
PDM’s “Magic” kicks off proceedings with a well know male-rap vocal collaged onto a funky shaker rhythm before “Evil Vibration” by the Mighty Ryeders gets lo-pass filtered into just bass and groove. Every so often the catchy rap hook gets fired over the top of the mix with aplomb, hitting hard and working collaboratively with the hi-pass filtered sections. Dayne S’s “My Soul” is up next, another soundsystem-ready disco-house jam which tickles the subwoofers beautifully and seems purpose built for eyes-wide-shut Summer terrace play in big outdoor spaces. Zoka brings two cuts to the B-side. “I Don’t Dance” deploys some nice warm disco drums before subtly working in some intricate guitar parts, funky b-line and sensual female vocals. Another hip-shaker to get an early evening dancefloor wiggling too. Finally, “Professional Dancer” closes off the EP with a percussion heavy workout taking in wicky-wicky guitar (official term) and heady, psychedelic elements; a loft-party future classic for sophisticated dancers everywhere.
