Yes, another giveaway people!! We have the great opportunity to team up again with our friends from London, team Blunted Astronaut Records. This time we give you another 7″, but one that will be more familiar to your ears:
It’s been just over a year since the passing of legendary recording artist Jimmy Castor. To mark this occasion, Blunted Astronaut and DJ Doom are proud to present a very special tribute to one of the most important B-Boy anthems of all time – the 1970 funk masterpiece “It’s Just Begun”.
Hailing from Brooklyn, NYC, Doom has been immersed in Hip-Hop culture since the days of his youth in the early 1980′s. Graff writer, B-Boy, DJ, producer – there’s not a lot the man hasn’t done! On this, his third BA release, he teams up with Nutso for a truly unique project, revisiting a timeless classic that carries forward the musical legacy of the late, great, Jimmy Castor for years to come.
His trusty SP1200 is once again put to work, and with guest appearances by Large Professor, Tony Touch and El Da Sensei (The Artifacts) this limited 7” is guaranteed to be another Blunted Astronaut sure shot.
It’s also worth noting that the label artwork (by Mr. Krum) is inspired by the layout and typesetting of the U.S. 45 on Kinetic – the much treasured ‘original’ version.
We all know the track from LiveFromHQ, where it’s being played for several weeks by DJ Premier!
Now… We are giving away 3 copies, you want to win? You probably already know the deal. To win one of these copies you just have to send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address. Deadline: 10th of July 2013. The winners will also be announced next week.
Big thanks to Nutso & DJ Doom and Blunted Astronaut Records! Of course you can also buy the 7″ and many more music at their shop. Support!!
