Music Blog of the Week: Silence Is A Rhythm Too

I discovered this music blog while trying to find a mp3 of the Skatalites version of the James Bond Theme. There's always interesting MP3's available to download every week making me a regular visitor. The blogs' maestro is based in Minnesota, United States and goes by the name of Michael aka DJ Rez.

Hi there, trying to get back to old ways - I actually bought some records for the first time this year!
These are some of the sounds coming from the SHED this week !

Here are the links and they will all be on a mix to download soon -
if I get the time ;-)

The Dynamics: Seven Nation Army / Move On Up 7"
Label: Big Smile Catalogue number: BIGs001
Country of origin: FRA

Two huge reggae cover versions of classic tracks. White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army gets a deep dub mix with an amazing trio of vocals from the Dynamics. On the flip the Dynamics cover the classic Curtis Mayfield Move On Up. Keeping the sweet mellow flavour of the original whilst cranking up the reggae flavour. This hyper-rare 45 is attracting some serious action and is destined to become a bit of a collectors item.

(Not) J*Star: Reggae Rigby / Reggae La La 12"
Label: White Catalogue number: NMT001
Country of origin: UK

The very hard to come by reggae version of the Beatles Elanor Rigby turns up on a twelve inch. Its a very well done re-edit, with Paul McCartneys vocal chopped to fit the reggae backing perfectly, you would almost think Revolver was the Beatles lost dubbed out classic... Flip over and there is a reggae version of the Fugee's Fuu-Gee-La. It was first listed at Fat City by J*Star, they later found out it was NOT the work of J*Star, but of another mysterious reggae relicker, so thats why it's down as (Not) J*Star !!!
****With a bit of google-research I found a post on the House of Cuss forum dated November 26, 2004 (!), that the "Rigby Reggae" mashup was done by the French duo Loo & Placido. So the track's a couple years old !

DJ Shadow: This Time (I'm Gonna Try It My Way) / Dub 7"
Label: Island
Catalogue number:1716790
Country of origin: USA

DJ Shadow's new album The Outsider has been getting quite a lot of negative feedback recently but this track taken from it is a gem of a 7". The story goes that DJ Shadow (or a friend) found a dusty old unnamed 60s / 70s soul acetate in the studio a while back, listened to it and was so impressed that he based this track on it. To re-create that sun-dappled Memphis blue-eyed soul sound he hooked up with the Heliocentrics (Stark Reality's Nesta and funk 45 hero and drummer Malcolm Catto, ex of Mo'Wax) who add live playing. Then, just to ice that cake a bit more, he's drafted in Wil Malone to arrange the rather emotive strings. If you didn't know already, Malone is famous for the strings on Massive Attack's "Unfinished Sympathy", as well The Verve's "Bitter Sweet Symphony" and a few cult soundtracks too. On the flip there's a slow and low dub version for the beat diggers, which is also pretty damn fine. Don't let this sneak under the radar because it's gonna be your first killer secret weapon of 2007!
