Crate-digging DJs relax: as long as there are bands like Kings Go Forth around, you'll never lack for sample-worthy grooves. On this track from its upcoming debut The Outsiders Are Back, the Milwaukee ten-piece wraps blaring horns and burbling congas in a warm production style that does justice to its '60s and '70s soul ancestry. Drummer Jeremy Kuzniar's killer solo is the crowning moment here -- his fierce barrage of crashing cymbals and clickety-clackety rim shots are like a coveted breakbeat waiting to happen.
