Monday morning and we’ve got the funky scoop for you. You see, Superjock Records out of New Orleans is moving like a freight train through the night with another NOLA Breaks volume on 45. We are up to volume nine, and this time Professor Shorthair has teamed up with the Bay Area’s DJ Platurn to relick two important originals for the dance floor. Shorthair takes a killer track in The Enticer’s “Thief”, a heavy drum filled original made brought to the mainstream by Mos Def’s “Napoleon Dynamite” and other DJs who have been popping that 45 for years. On the flip, Platurn gets busy with Warren Lee’s “Underdog Backstreet” and gets the party started right and quick-ly, niftily, aw you know the rest. The turntablist adds in plenty of bars and samples, so you may want to pick up doubles of this one. Pressed up on gold colored vinyl with a limited pressing of 500, it also contains a heavy duty sleeve and collaboration stickers as well. Two sides of party rocking joints, so get them before they are gone. Both DJs/ producers have been lighting up their respective parts of the nation with exclusive releases, mixes, and the like for years. It’s great to see them work together on this project. It’s important to support people like Shorthair and Platurn, who both do a great service for the DJ and music industry.
Listen to a snippet of both sides below:
