Altered Tapes - Vol 11LABEL: Heat Rock
Heat Rock Records's ongoing series hits a superb 11th volume with another crucial pair of floor-filling tunes from the worlds of funk, hip & r&b. It is a return to the golden age and flower power ear of hip hop on the opener by Trew. 'Kamaal & The Gang' (take A Break remix) is led by a mystical flute line and back with stylish horns as well as buttery rhymes. The beats cut deep and then on the flip it is Double A who serve up the hard-hitting b-boy breaks and angular rock licks of 'Can You Hear Me Now?' (The Source Is Yours edit).
