Lab Overview

Aww snap, Shoes is back! Ya'll already know how the Shoes crew kills it on the edits (see past refixes of Miles Davis, Roy Ayers, Bohannon, etc), but this time they've really outdone themselves by tackling a diverse selection of classic digger cuts and funky anthems. Up first is Skull Snaps' "It's A New Day", a track infamous for its heavily sampled drum break, but Shoes flips it so now the whole track can get some love on the dance floor. Next up, Ray Baretto's "El Bantu" gets chopped and filtered for a slow motion latin stomp, while Manu Dibango's "Wilderness" gets a killer re-work for the afro-disco heads. Lastly, Shoes switches it up on the closer with the heavy blues vibe of John Lee Hooker's "I'm In The Mood" getting a subtle dub out. Don't sleep on this one! Recommended.
