☆☆☆☆☆ It’s sureshot booty double-header time from Voodoocuts as our man brings his Juice series to format-of-the-minute, seven inch vinyl, with his first Juice On Wax drop. Step forward a pumping funky disco edit of Etta James’ 70s funk period number Only A Fool that, frankly, only a fool would ignore. Still, what to put on the B-side? It better be something big. Ah yes – Loopita – that’ll do a nicely, a windmilling b-boy breaks edit of Nico Gomez’ giant latin-psych cut Lupita that not only manages to take things in a different direction to Bronx Dogs’ Mambo Roc but be equally dope.
The 7" is fiiiire! Defitenly one for my DJ-bag. Lookin' forward to drop this gem!

The masterful remixer/re-editor and consistently excellent Voodoocuts over in Berlin has a new 45 coming early May, and boy oh boy it's a good one! The A side features a pumping disco-funk banger with a chunky 4-4 kick drum and Etta James belting out the vocal, pure class! The flip sees the classic 'Lupita' by Nico Gomez become 'Loopita', a BBoy monster that will ignite any dancefloor, just check the preview below. Big up Voodoocuts, excellent work sir!
I love it as always!
