Jim-E Stack - Lemme

'Jim-E Stack is an up and coming DJ/Producer out of New Orleans that draws influences from UK funky to Mexico’s 3ball, and house. He's churned out some rad remixes this year and has got big things planned for 2011.' via Mad Decent.

Jim cuts up and loops a Chris Brown vocal sample, much like Joy Orbison does on 'J.Doe', adds a funky drum pattern with some splendid pads and looping delayed lead.

The vocal chops really add to the rhythm of the track.

Been listening to a lot of stuff like this at the moment, just straight up funky/garage/dub instrumentals with added vocal cut ups layered up on top. Seems to resonate with me, especially when the sun has been blazing.

A few excellent riddim examples below...
