Following the recent release of their 2nd longplayer, "180.000 Miles & Counting", The Dynamics are back in 2012 with a dope remixes package of their new single "For the Love of Money".
We couldn't resist to ask the mysterious bootleg Kings 7 Samurai (GAMM) to do a remix, and he turned the track in a massive Reggae-Disco version. There are lots of Steel Funk recordings by huge orchestras from Trinidad and other Caribbean islands. We were wondering what would become "For The Love of Money" in their hands, the answer is given by the master of Deep Funk, The Mighty Mocambos, with the participation of the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band .
- Alex Kenning (Radio 1 Producer - Gilles Peterson / Judge Jules / Roger Sanchez): "Great thanks!"
- Nick (Record Kicks / Italy): "Wicked stuff, excellent job by 7samurai. A great dancefloor mover... bravo!"
- Michael Reinboth (Compost Medien GmbH & Co. KG): "nice ride and flow I LIKE, I LIKE, I LIKE, THANKS"
- Frank Dubya (SHOOK Mag): "Pockets linted? Forget the 'pinch', 'squeeze' and 'crunch', bet it all on black...7 Samurai's disco rub breaks the bank!"
- Jason Pulaski (KUCI 88.9fm / Ubiquity Records): "The 7samurai mix is the winner here! Will be playing."
- Miles Bonny (INnatesounds / Melting Pot Music): "I love the air and funk. Reverb heavy and good. Music for music's sake. I like that"
- DJ Solespin (The Suite Delight (CJLO Radio)): "The 7 Samurai mix of For The Love of Money is a modern-day, dubbed out, funkdafied dance floor track. Loving it!"
- Jeremy Sole (KCRW / Afro Funke / theLIFT // DJ & Radio Host): "Taaasty. All of these are on really point but as a cat who loves a good steel drum cover version, Mocambo keeps it authentic yet gives it one of these modern day booty transplants."
- Mike Chadwick (Jazz FM / UK): "Lovin the steel pans, 7 Samurai on the money (tee hee)"
- Julius (LDBK radio): "I'll play it for sure but... show me the money first ;)"
- Merijn Tiemessen (Wicked Jazz Sounds): "Wel def get some airplay on Dutch radio!"
- Mark Milz ("FURTHERIN FUSION" @ Radio Corax 95.9fm (Germany)): "7 samurai for the win !!!"
