Hero No.7 return on their own Hero Records imprint with a brand new remix of “Keeping It Real?” by Germany’s breaks superstars Mash & Munkee. The original version of “Keeping It Real?” was a bona fide b-boy classic, gathering support from top international DJs such as Coldcut & Andy Smith, and was featured alongside Eric B & Rakim, The Roots & The Herbaliser’s “FabricLive 26″ mix-CD.
It was also used by champion breakdancers the Bad Taste Cru when they represented the UK at the 2008 Battle Of The Year World Finals. This remix for 2011 sees Mash & Munkee (aka Unifairfly / Renegades of Jazz and Deli-Kutt) turn the notch up and take the track into nu-funk territory with new drums, guitars, fat horns and swift scratchimg.
In a remix exchange, Hero No.7 have in turn reworked Mash & Munkee’s track “Keep On Movin’” and turned it into a cut’n'paste extravaganza, stripping back the original track to its musical roots and topping it off with heavier breaks, percussion and vocal samples. The track is topped off with some deft turntable action from legendary scratch DJ Krash Slaughta (II Tone Committee / Monkey Mafia / Killa Instinct) who expertly cuts up more musical delights.
Two sides of dancefloor b-boy funk guaranteed to rock your party.
