With a serious glut of releases hitting the market right now we feels it's our duty to present to you, dear reader, our top choices for your eardrums so gather round. We're here today to discuss a brand new label DRPN Gems who present label boss Wally Puma on one side and Jim Sharp on the flip. With his producer cap on, Wally Puma pits a party classic with a more current JA ting for 'La Di Stepper' for what's sure to feature in lockdown Twitch streams and post lockdown club sets.
On the flip, the most prolific producer servicing DJ's who's format of choice is the humble forty-five has upped the ante once again on this his debut release for the label. We refer of course to Dusty Donuts DJ squad member Jim Sharp who's latest effort delivers with all guns blazing bringing the listener into full force block party territory with an essential DJ tool entitled 'Step Into A Break' . The producer takes elements of the Blastmaster's party fave and combines this with his own drum toolbox to bring this cut bang up to date. On 'Something In The Way' he gives a nod to the classic NYC mixtapes like Kid Capri's '52 Beats' and underpins Ms. Mills with that ruffneck Honeydripper beat to round out what is a nice set of DJ tool tracks.
Head to Juno after the stream to secure doubles.
