Love and Gwalla

Though thoroughly defunct by the time I started finding these edits, Phillip D. Kick was a short-lived side project of British producer Om Unit, "active" to the extent that the moniker was used to release a series of edits and reworks called Footwork Jungle (volumes 1-3) last year - I don't think Philip K. Dick himself, peace be upon him, would be disappointed by the gentle bit of appropriation. Phillip D. Kick's reworks are surreal, often featuring creative sample choruses, carrying over central elements of original vocals and looping them for quick repetition over fast paced jungle and juke house beats. This week XLR8R posted a late addition to the series, previously held back by concerns from the tracks originator, Louis Blaise, with his magic giant watch up there. (via XLR8R)

Louis Blase - Love and Gwalla (Phillip D. Kick Remix)
Remarc - R.I.P. (Phillip D. Kick's Footwork Jungle Edit)
The original Footwork Jungle reworks were available for free but all of the Phillip D. Kick web resources have since been pulled, but here's a well updated article that's preserved a series of embedded mediafire links against the forces of entropy.
