The Soul Searchers / Dimitri From Paris
In 1987, a young Dimitri discovers that the "Ashley’s Roachclip" break was the backbone of Coldcut’s legendary ‘7 minutes of madness’ remix of Eric B & Rakim’s "Paid In Full”.
He digs out the original 1974 song by The Soul Searchers, and falls in love with the rest of the music. Fast forward 35 years later, DFP chops it up in an old school cut-and-splice way, adding a touch of modern technique to beef up the beat all throughout.
The original’s sophisticated funky beat, rolling bass, fuzz guitars, great horns and flute are all present in this new edit, adorning the extended sections of the infamous break.
Officially licensed top end manufacture This makes it the second outing on Dimitri From Paris’ own ‘DFP Vaults', a new label aimed at releasing his unreleased secret weapons, whether old or new.
