If you're a regular to this blog you've probably heard me mention Jim Sharp. Not only is he an amazing turntablist and DJ, he's also a brilliant producer. In his latest exploration of turning a classic track into a fresh original rework, he's taken on Scott Walker and his best of release Boy Child: 67-70.
Featuring elegant sample looping matched with beefed up percussion and the odd scratched vocal sample, Jim has taken these select tracks and made them his own. Check them out in the player and have a listen to the original tracks via the Youtube links below. Jim Sharp & Scott Walker - Boy Child: Revisited EP is out now on Championship Vinyl records and you can download it from the Soundcloud player below.
