Over the years we have made some great friends at Soul 45, people that are passionate about music are the people we care about. One of them that we always check in on is our mate Leo from Paris, France, DJ SUSPECT.
We were luck enough to having him play for us and had the pleasure of hearing some incredible french funk 45s back in June, now Dj Suspect has created a very unique podcast mix for NYC based label Truth & Soul, showcasing some of these fantastic records. Packed with funk bass lines, wurlitzer organs and drum breaks that beat makers will be begging to sample, there is no question here that Dj Suspect has taste.
Opening up with the moody rhythms of Georges Garvarentz – “Haschisch Party”, The mix takes you on a journey of French Jazz, Funk and Soul, featuring giants like Serge Gainsbourg, Jean Claude Vannier and Jean Jacques Perrey. There is something very original and unique about this mix that perhaps only Dj Suspect could pull off with out it becoming cliche. Download and stream, we urge you to do both.
DJ SUSPECT & DOC TMK (feat. EMSKEE & A.S.M.): That’ll Never Happen / Fresh (Dusty Platter 45 Remix Vol.1) (2014)
As well as ‘French Delivery’, this month Suspect has been been busy on production duties, delving deep into the crates for dirty samples with collaborative partner Doc TMK, launching a brand 45 remix series on Dusty Platter. Begining with a great double sider, slick label artwork from Mr Krum (no introduction needed, check the portfolio) and limited to 500 pressings world wide, the A side “That’ll Never Happen” features NYC mc Emskee from the Good People bringing some classic rhyming flavours over these great rolling bongos and warm bass lines.
The flip side sees a remix of ‘FRESH’ taken from the Jukebox Champions – Don’t Rock The Jukebox LP, featuring the half German, half Canadian team ASM (A State of Mind). It’s hard not to get down to this one and we’ll be dropping both sides at the club night next week.
Chances are this has sold out but there might a few left for the taking if you’re quick
