21/01/2021: “Love Don’t Pay The Rent (The Jinks Work Shy Dub)” by Mone

Mone is a veteran House vocalist, with a no holds barred powerful voice worthy of the genre.

A shame really, that this is the dub mix!

But what can I say? The groove is too great to ignore on this one. Although variously decorated with horns samples, soulful vocal snippets, and dubbed out guitars, the beat and bassline are solid enough to drive the groove for 5 minutes here.

Adding extra flavour is the simple up and down vamp which seems to be taken from the bassline of the original, as far as I can tell.

Star of the show, though, is that smashing drum beat, loaded with juicy, shuffling hi hats and cheeky off beat snares. What a jam…

The track sits on a four track E.P. released on Strictly Rhythm in 2010, Love Don’t Pay The Rent, with 3 other songs – the smoother, deeper DJ Meme cuts and the harder, more aggressive Scott Wozniak mix.
