S.M.O.V. – EP W1 (12″ & Free Download EP)

EP W1 CoverWack Records WACK001: 21st August 2006
1. Big Love mp3
“And when it comes to gettin’ nookie, I’m not a rookie, I got girls that make that chick Toni Braxton look like Whoopi”
2. Jazz Trap mp3
“I don’t really wanna lose you, but I don’t want your folks to, turn me over to the hands of the law”
3. Kool Blues mp3
“So to the next weasel that freezes, your beggin’ and ya pleases, only gettin’ ya closer to meetin’ Jesus”

I bought this three track mash-up 12″, but I’ve found out it’s also available as a free download.

‘Big Love’ combines a sample of the killer intro to The Supremes’ 1966 single ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ with the rap from Big L’s ‘Put It On’. By taking just the intro, it’s been turned into something that sounds like Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust For Life’ with added bombastic horn flourishes (Which raises the question, is some budding remixer gonna combine Iggy and The Supremes?). It’s absolutely irresistible, I can’t stop playing it and it’s going to be one of the tracks of the year.

‘Jazz Trap’ is either simply a jazzy remix of a Colonel Abrams’ 1985 house tune ‘Trapped’, or a mash-up with something else that I can’t identify (If somebody knows, please tell me). ‘Kool Blues’ combines Kool G. Rap & D.J. Polo’s ‘Ill Street Blues’ with the 1968 proto-chillout track ‘On A Clear Day (You Can See Forever)’ by The Peddlers. ‘Jazz Trap’ and ‘Kool Blues’ are both outstanding tunes but they can’t help but seem inferior when compared with ‘Big Love’.

I’ve included links to download the songs that have been sampled on the above mash-ups.

Big L – Put It On mp3
The Supremes – You Can’t Hurry Love mp3
Colonel Abrams – Trapped mp3
Kool G Rap & DJ Polo – Ill Street Blues mp3
The Peddlers – On A Clear Day You Can See Forever mp3

Also click here to download a fantastic thirty-minute mix by S.M.O.V. Any mix that kicks off with The Ghostbusters theme followed by a Coldcut sample has got to be worth having in my book.

  2. Hello Smoove and friends,

    I just got this Big Love song mp3. Do you plan to press it again or do you know where I still can get it? It is sold out everywhere and I cant find the vinyl.

    Thanks in advance!
    Stefan

  3. Re: Stefan. I’ve just checked all the usual places and It seems to be soldout everywhere. I’d reccommended sticking in a “favourite search” on Ebay with something like Big Love, Wack or SMOV/Smoove. Then sit back and wait for someone to list a copy.

    Ryan.

  4. Thanks for your efforts, Ryan. I asked a colleague of mine and he recommended me to check again http://www.deejay.de, because he found it there. So I did this and there I could order it. The shop is still waiting for the vinyl, but it is not canceled yet. Usually they cancel an order, if tey cannot get the vinyl within a certain period. So I already sit back and wait. If they cancel my order, I will try to get it at Ebay. Thanks again,

    Stefan
