This new single from Tuneyards (who appear to have dropped the hyphen this time round) is well all-star! Check it out, you've got the album cut of 'Gangsta', a slice of wonky hip hop party greatness from their album 'w h o k i l l' on the A side followed by mixes from Adrock and Cut Chemist! Then on the other side we've got an instrumental and an a capella, rounding off a very tasty bit of DJ fodder (fuck knows why it's on 33rpm, presumably space issues). As one might expect, the Cut Chemist mix here is the one you'll want to slot into your set, with some amazing booming stop-start beats and false endings and a touch of tasteful and unintrusive scratching. A prime cut, make no mistake. The more I think about it the more it's a match made in dancefloor heaven; they've both got total cheese pop stylings mixed with a rhythmic playfulness and a dynamic edge. If you're looking for a fun night in, why not get an extra copy of this record and try to line up the instrumental and a capella versions simultaneously on two record players for your own unique album version? Just a thought.
