Track Listing:

The Mushi 45 series returns with something rather special: a limited edition seven-inch containing un-credited re-edits of two killer cuts that have previously provided sample fodder for some of the biggest hip-hop cuts of all time. On side A the mystery re-work merchants set to work on the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band's "Darkest Light", a jazzy laidback funk shuffler whose snaking sax line has popped up on countless rap tracks by the likes of Jay-Z, Public Enemy and Ice Cube. Over on the flip Outlaw Blues Band's "Deep Gully" gets the rearrangement treatment. It's another familiar favorite thanks to use in cuts by MC Serch, De La Soul and Cypress Hill, with the secretive scalpel fiends tastefully cutting and pasting the deep grooves, eyes-closed guitar solos and jazzy horn arrangements.
