Already a favourite of Craig Charles, David Hanke's Renegades Of Jazz follow up last month's Moo Juice with the new stormer, "Gonna Break This Chain". Eschewing his more jazzier influences, this time Hanke delivers two slices of live and true vintage funk and soul - the title track being a searing anthem of the "Hold On I'm Comin" variety, and "Gimmie Some" fusing old school soul and gospel vibes with some cool, laid back hip hop.
Often, a lot of questionable feats and skills are retrospectively foisted upon music legends by the nerdier music fans amongst us. Classic DJs like Ron Hardy are regularly claimed to have seamlessly mixed the one copy of the same record for five hours with his toenail, whilst stood upside down and blindfolded in the booth. The sleeves of "School Yard Breaks" do nothing to change this, but for the most part we'll never really know what is truth and what is myth. However we do know what they played and here are another 25 b-boy breaks to play 'air mix toe' to.
