People Must Jam's ninth record is from one of our favourite DJs and producers. A guy who has a ridiculously large back catalogue and in our opinion it is a crime that some of his records haven't received bigger recognition. A true master of House and Hip Hop music, Kid Sublime has been putting out amazing records since 2001. His own label Dopeness Galore literally does exactly what it says on the tin.
Even before we launched People Must Jam's label we wanted Kid Sublime to be a part of it. Now finally we are stoked to present this EP... Four serious cuts for four different vibed floors - look out!
First up Kid's homage to Techno legend Ben Sims with 'Bang Like Sims' a driving deep Techno groove. Strong percussion, deep stabs and that unrelenting beat are going to ensure this one gets some love on the harder edged, heavier dance floors.
'We The People' heads a little down the tribal route with some afro inspired percussion, haunting samples and that kalimba! Dropping a really infectious riff before beautiful piano melodies drift in and out of the mix. Wonderful stuff.
The title track 'I like 'em dirty'; we feel, is a lesson in proper Deep House. Classic sounding house beats, little guitar licks, deep stabs and the vocal sample combine for this perfect house cut. Massive. The EP is rounded out with another cut in tribute to the legend that was Kenny Hawkes. Another master of his craft - Kenny sadly now passed on but his spirit is well and truly alive in this fitting tribute. 'One 4 Kenny' features strong percussion, low bass, deep stabs and slamming beats = cracking stuff.
As always limited 180gm pressed vinyl. We hope you like it.
