Boomkat Product Review:
Third and final Worst Edits session in the series from the don Jamal Moss, deploying an hour and a half of unmixed bullets made to let u LARP as The Sun God himself demolishing and rebuilding New Wave, Chi-house and Disco in that inimitable, deadly style.
Vol 3 deploys 1.5 hrs of his heaviest heat, executed in a style directly inspired by Ron Hardy DJ sets and the styles heard at Chicago clubs Jamal was a patron of during the late ‘80s and thru the ‘90s. As we’ve already mentioned, even eulogised; Jamal’s extended DJ sets are little short of life-changing/affirming experiences that make most other DJ sets pale in comparison, and that’s in part due to the devilish, unpredictable swerve of his edits, as you’ll hear here. Ye ye they’re rough and f*cked around the edges and that’s what makes them so untouchable.
Jamal brings a seriously deep knowledge and unique frame of reference to every edit in a way that just cannot be sniffed at. Yet again we’re mostly stumped for track IDs, but can guarantee they’re all zingers if you’ve a kink for this kind of thing (read: you love dancing), including unmissable chops of MBO & Klein and John Cooper Clark in it along with incendiary, tracky lathers, cavalcades of Afro-Latin percussion, and jaw-wobbling peakers, plus an incredible 15 minute disco-funk rug cutter, and machine gunned disco stutters to polish you off.
