Diggin’ This: JIM (Ron Basejam, Crazy P) – “Phoenix” (The Cult Cover) (NuNorthern Soul Records)
Nottingham, UK’s JIM aka Jim Baron aka Ron Basejam aka one of the founding members of Crazy P turns in a frankly fantastic folk reimagining of The Cult’s “Phoenix” with backing vocals from his Crazy P bandmate Danielle Moore.
Attention DJs: this one segues perfectly into JIM’s NuNorthern Soul labelmate BJ Smith’s superb acoustic rework of The Pharcyde’s “Runnin’.”
(Listen to it here and check out his equally amazing cover of “Umi Says” while you’re at it.)
Jim – “Phoenix” (The Cult Cover)
