RIYL: sample-heavy hip hop, blaxploitation soundtracks

Label: Redefinition Records

New York City funkstrumental duo The Du-Rites, made up of multi-instrumentalists J-Zone and Pablo Martin, have thrown the damn gauntlet down on their debut full-length, combining the best elements of jazz, funk and hip hop and slamming an adrenaline shot into its chest cavity.

You can hear J-Zone and Pablo’s sweat all over this mix with every punch of that funkified bass, those warm Rhodes riffs and the hip-grinding breakbeat rhythms.  These tracks are bursting with an endorphin rush, best listened to on that last martini of the night before you move your chips all in or while you’re walking down the street with your friends dressed to the nines on your way to a jewel heist.

500 copies are available on orange wax, and if Redefinition Records runs out, there are a few on their Bandcamp page.  Listen to the entire album below!
