  1. Babe Ruth - "The Mexican" (Mr Fantastic edit) (3:37)
  2. Organised Konfusion - "Prisoners Of War" (4:35)
Review: Consistently on-point and expertly dug, Originals continue to join the dots with creativity. Here we rewind to 1973 for Babe Ruth's biggest cut "The Mexican". Its lolloping, rolling bassline and spacious drums have been sampled by many but Organised Konfusion's use is definitely one of the best. Needle down and listen as Prince Po and Pharoahe Monche lay down lucid 1991 flows with a serious political agenda that's still just as resonant today. Timeless on both sides.

  1. Art Blakey - "Stretching" (J Rocc edit) (3:43)
  2. Digable Planets - "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" (4:18)
Review: With a refreshed label design, the Originals series seems in no trouble of running out of steam any time soon as catalogue number 30 hones into view. The 29th rinky dinky Originals squares the focus on Art Blakey's "Stretching" with one of the world's best DJs, J Rocc, offering up a fine 45 treatment of the Jazz classic on the A Side. Representing the sample flip on the flip is Digable Planets and "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" which deftly pulled out the horns and bassline from Blakey's original and looped them up for what is now regarded as an early '90s hip hop classic.

  1. Blue Mitchell - "Good Humour Man" (5:24)
  2. The UMC's - "One To Grow On" (4:45)
Review: The Originals sample-seeking series continue as we're asked to compare and contrast an original source and a classic execution made years later. This is a perfect example; here Blue Mitchell's Blue Note 1967 smoky jazz instrumental (taken from his Heads Up! album) is remembered in all its multi-strand narrative glory before we jump deep into early 90s b-boy heaven by way of New York's UMC's. A fine lesson in how to work a sample to the funkiest effect.

  1. Billy Brooks - "Forty Days" (6:16)
  2. A Tribe Called Quest - "Luck Of Lucien" (4:32)
Review: The Originals dot-joining exercise continues apace with another great lesson for the budding diggers and sample spotters... Here Alabama trumpeter Brooks' 74 jazz adventure is dusted off in all its meandering, joyfully unpredictable seven minute glory. Flip for a fine lesson in classic sampling as Tribe Called Quest's "Luck Of Lucien" utilises the hook at a different speed, pitch and vibe that's tailored for ATCQ. In the words of Q Tip himself "Get a grip on the mission you're taking".

  1. James Brown - "Make It Good To Yourself"
  2. Percee P - "Lung Collapsing Lyrics"
Review: Given James Brown's sizeable contribution to hip hop in terms of samples flipped, it's a mark of the diggers knowledge shown by Originals that the Godfather of Funk has only featured intermittently on the series across it's 20 plus releases. Nonetheless, the opportunity to indulge in the ripe funk of James Brown has proved too hard to resist any longer for Originals, who square in on "Make It Good To Yourself", a contribution to early '70s Blaxploitation flick Black Caesar. On the B Side some classic early '90s hip hop from Percee P is the sample flip of choice, with producer Richard Todd Ray's usage of the track on "Lung Collapsing Lyrics" quite superb.

Funk
  1. Ray Bryant - "Up Above The Rock"
  2. Kool G Rap & DJ Polo - "On The Run"
Review: This seven from the Originals label perfectly encapsulates what the series is all about, pairing a track whose elements have been sampled numerous times over with perhaps the best example of how it was musically reinterpreted. Even if you don't know "Up Above The Rock", the title track from the 1968 LP by Philadelphia based jazz pianist and composer Ray Bryant, by name you'll immediately recognise it's distinctive break and piano riff. This latter element was incorporated superbly on the early 90s hip hop cut "On The Run" from Kool G Rap and DJ Polo which lines the B Side, slowed down somewhat but still distinctively the work of Bryant.

  1. Gene Chandler - "In My Body's House"
  2. Baby Huey - "Hard Times"
Review: You can hear elements of "Hard Times" by Baby Huey in the Tribe classic "Can I Kick It?" and numerous other hip hop cuts over the years (Ghostface and Diamond D to name two) so it's little surprise to see it picked up by the Originals series. However this 45 offers a slight deviation from the label's successful formula, as instead of a hip hop banger sharing space with baby Huey we have the late '60s track that actually inspired "Hard Times". Penned by Curtis Mayfield, and sung by Gene Chandler, "In My Body's House" makes for a comparatively upbeat soul cut replete with a blinding breakbeat that will have the sample fiends out there very excited indeed.

Review: If you were lucky enough to snap up that Dee Edwards and Pilooski seven inch with the familiar logo that proved so massively popular over the summer months then you'll know the drill with this latest 45 from the Originals camp. On the A Side you get "Scrabble", Rene Costy's masterful slice of library funk that is complemented on the flip by the classic Motor City boombap of "F*ck The Police" by the sadly departed J Dilla which of course expertly pilfered the stuttering break.

  1. Cymande - "Bra"
  2. Gang Starr - "Movin' On"
Review: Here's a cool concept... Originals have coupled up a funk classic and a tune that's sampled it. Cymande's chucklesomely titled "Bra" has been sampled by De La Soul, Raze, Chuck Chillout, Busy Bee and Rhythm Technicians, but it's Gang Starr who score the B-Side with their old school classic "Movin' On". Ironically that was later sampled by Chad Jackson in "Hear The Drummer Get Wicked"... This unique and highly collectable concept could go on forever!

Review: The Originals label is on straight-up fire at the moment, coming through rough and ready with a whole heap of gorgeous disco reissues ready to be cranked-up by contemporary producers. "Funky Music Is The Thing" by The Corvettes, a funky-as-hell soul train, is beefed up by Mr Fantastic with a tidy little edit, whereas The D.O.C and their "Lend Me An Ear" hip-hop joint gets a nice touch-up of the modern B-Boys.

  1. Why Can't There Be Love?
  2. I Can Deal With That
Review: The late great Alabama babe Edwards was last re-introduced by Adidas in 2010 via a very cool Pilooski remix. Cleverly revisited in 'original' form, the 1971 version is quite subversive for its time thanks to its distorted rhythm guitar providing a unique backbone. "I Can Deal With That" takes us forward to 77 on a slinkier, sexier soul vibe. Beautiful. Shoe companies should run labels more often...

  2. DJ Jazzy Jeff - "A Touch Of Jazz" (4:46)
Review: In the pantheon of Marvin Gaye classics, "T Plays It Cool" is a steadfast favourite here at Juno Records. That intro, the stone cold drum fill, the monster saxophone, the subtle moog melodies, and the fact it was part of Gaye's superb soundtrack for Troubleman. A mark of its stature as a classic is the countless times it has been sampled, with Originals opting to line the flip of their latest 45 with Jazzy Jeff's chunky late '80s cut "A Touch Of Jazz". In his hands that classic lilting sax line and numerous other elements are included in a sampledelic fashion aimed at showcasing his scratching prowess.

  1. Syl Johnson - "Different Strokes"
  2. Divine Force - "My Uptown Beat"
Review: Another clever release from Originals, Syl Johnson's "Different Strokes" has been sampled by some of the biggest names in hip-hop history; Kanye, Jay-Z, Wu Tang, J Dilla, Public Enemy... The list genuinely goes on and on. A classic piece of soul funk, it's hard to spot the breakbeat sample as the tune's so embracive and funky. For a remix-rendition Originals have picked Divine Force's "My Uptown Beat". Probably the rarest of the lot, it's a formative piece of late 80s hip-hop when b-boys were gearing up to jump the shark. An excellent, not to mention damn funky, history lesson!

Review: The familiar retro three stripes logo that adorns the centre of this 45 tells you it's another Originals release! Fans of vintage Pete Rock will recognise Ernie Hines voice as soon as the vocals to "Our Generation" drops and this 72 conscious soul gem contains a pretty tasty beat too! The flipside has an equally bumping cover version undertaken by modern day funkateers par excellence The Roots with John Legend providing a more than adequate Hines replacement!

  2. Gang Starr - "Who's Gonna Take The Weight"
Review: Now firmly into the double figures, the Originals series seems like it could quite easily surpass the centenary mark without the concept ever feeling exhausted such is the vast well of source material and those that sampled it. Here the classic slab of funk that is "Parrty" by Maceo & The Macks takes centre stage on the A Side, reminding everyone that needs to be reminded just how tight Maceo, Fred and James were. For the flip, Originals turn to a master of flipping a track in DJ Premier and the Gangstarr standard "Who's Going To Take The Weight?". Listen to the A then the B and you'll realise how much of a producer Premier is. Seriously.

  2. Pete Rock & CL Smooth - "Good Life"
Review: Originals label pay homage to the fine art of sampling once again with this ace 7" dedicated to The Meters. Responsible for some of the best breakbeat contributions of all time, here we find their 1970 classic "Same Old Thing" (taken from their Struttin album) in all its bass-thumping, organ-slapping glory. Meanwhile on the B we hear just how it inspired Pete Rock and CL Smooth with the still-fresh "Good Life". An unmissable celebration of classic funk and hip-hop where the Originals imprint continues to impress.

  1. Odetta - "Hit Or Miss"
  2. Bo Diddley - "Hit Or Miss"
Review: Two hugely historic versions from Adidas's high-schooling Originals imprint. Odetta's 1970 original is a beautifully sexy, smouldering piece of smoky blues while Bo Diddley's cover (that came four years later) is much more upbeat and funk focussed with added horns and head-turning bass runs. Both have inspired every generation that's followed and have undergone myriad sample treatments. Return to the source and understand just why they've been so influential.

  1. Send Him Back (original mix)
  2. Send Him Back (Pilooski edit)
Review: It's unofficial 'let's remember how great Pilooski is' week! The Frenchman's excellent robo-funking take on LCD Soundsystem's 45:33 was the subject of a much needed reissue via DFA's White Out series and now the dinked Originals label offers up one of Pilooski's best edits. Whilst that Frankie Valli edit might have brought Cedric Marszewski to great acclaim when it featured on the Adidas advert that inspired this record label series, let's not forget there were much better examples of his masterful craft on those Dark & Lovely 12"s that started surfacing in 2006. Chief amongst them was his barn-storming take on "Send Him Back" by The Pointer Sisters that deftly upped the dynamism of the original via some subtle handclaps, beefed up low end and killer looping. It will remain a certified dancefloor killer for many years to come.

  1. Maggie Thrett - "Soupy" (2:58)
  2. De La Soul - "Jenifer Taught Me" (3:51)
Review: Number 30 in the originals series highlights the link between Dynavoice Records and the Daisy Age hip hoppers who sampled many of the label's releases. We are of course talking about Posdnuos, Dave, and Maseo, aka De La Soul, with Originals wisely squaring attentions on the Northern Soul monster "Soup" by Maggie Thrett and the De La classic "Jenifa Taught Me" which featured ample sampleage. This Originals edition of "Soup" is the first time it's been available in the 7" format since it's initial release in 1965 and is the sort of cut you can drop in a funk jam and see the crowd melt. What more is there to say about "Jenifa Taught Me"? It's a classic mate!

  1. The Turtles - "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea" (Chief Rocca edit) (3:42)
  2. Steady B - "Serious" (BDP 12" remix) (4:28)
Review: 1968's "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea" is perhaps one of the greatest forgotten nuggets of pure breakbeatism, and the original by The Turtles dates back to 1968. The date isn't perhaps that surprising in relation to the sounds used and the quirkiness of the tune, but it's the fact that it sounds like straight-up hip-hop from early 80s NY; Chief Rocca aka J Rocc does a bit of editing on this version, but the meat and bones of the original are definitely there. Steady B features on the flip with a remix from BDP, and this one is a pure throwback hip-hop banger like they used to make them - think Run DMC but much more from the underground.

Review: The Originals series continues to excel in deep-digging dot-joining department with this cool rewind back to 1977 when Velvet Hammer's "Happy" became a ubiquitous northern soul anthem thanks to its relentless groove, emphatic organ and soul-stirring falsetto vocals. Back to the future for the B-side we hear how celebrity hat wearer Pharrell Williams digested the classic and made it his own. Spanning over 35 years of soul, the Originals concept just keeps on teaching.

A joyous record for all selectors as it stands, the 45" series does what it does best with a sample-craft dot-joining pair-up with another essential floor-burner: EPMD's 1987 debu "It's My Thing". Two serious classics right here.
