It's been just over a year since the passing of legendary recording artist Jimmy Castor. To mark this occasion, Blunted Astronaut, DJ Doom and Nutso are proud to present a very special tribute to one of the most important B-Boy anthems of all time - the 1970 funk masterpiece "It's Just Begun".
Hailing from Brooklyn, NYC, Doom has been immersed in Hip-Hop culture since the days of his youth in the early 1980's. Graff writer, B-Boy, DJ, producer - there's not a lot the man hasn't done! On this, his third BA release, he teams up with Queens NY's own, Nutso for a truly unique project, revisiting a timeless classic that carries forward the musical legacy of the late, great, Jimmy Castor for years to come.
His trusty SP1200 is once again put to work, and Nutso combine their talents and with guest appearances by Large Professor, Tony Touch and El Da Sensei (The Artifacts) this limited 7" is guaranteed to be another Blunted Astronaut sure shot.
It's also worth noting that the label artwork (by Mr. Krum) is inspired by the layout and typesetting of the U.S. 45 on Kinetic - the much treasured 'original' version.
