RNT co-head JKriv does it up royal here with a bit of old and a bit of new. On the A side ‘The Queen On Her Throne’ is one of J’s seminal reworks in all of its 8 min glory, and although names have been changed to protect the innocent, a bomb by any other name is still a bomb!
That said it’s the flip that is our big tip here – West African 70’s jam ‘Bukom Mashie’ is re-worked into the raucous jazzy afro-house stomper that is ‘King Mashie’. Big tip for fans of Philou Louzou, Al Zanders, Cottam, JM Edits, and the recent Sleazy Beats Black Ops 12″.
To round it off there’s the stripped down beats-n-synth-apella of Queen’s Beats, perfect for mixing with the OG or played on its own! Essential.
