The title track from Shintaro Sakamoto's Let's Dance Raw sounds like a long-lost breakbeat masterpiece, one that hip-hop producers would feel totally outraged about for appearing on the Dusty Fingers comp. Part funk, part folk, part country, but all groove, Sakamoto dips his toes into Brazilian funk and 70s jazz on his first new LP in two years, due via Other Music on September 16. Stream the title track and check out a recent video below. Sandwich one of these joints in between two rare groove classics during your next DJ set and watch the crowd's collective heads explode.
