1 THING / HOOLA HOOP
Cat no. BC063-7
Following up on the massive success of their sophomore full length The Serpent’s Mouth,Bacao Rhythm and Steel Band is back with another dance floor classic. Side A is their already infamous cover of Amerie’s smash hit 1 Thing. Done up in what is now their signature fashion, they take on the break originally lifted from The Meters, and believe it or not....step it up a notch. Steel pans play her infectious vocal melody lines over the raucous and crushing drum track. This will have the dance floor turning to the booth in amazement and wonder as soon as the pans come in. An absolute essential for DJs across the globe.The B Side, Hoola Hoop is a Bacao Rhythm and Steel Band original tune, the stuff that B Boys dream about...Setting it off with a killer breakbeat intro that drops into pan hits and flute flourishes, never losing the groove and full of energy. They trade off leads from flute to steel pans while running through turnarounds and drum fills building more energy the whole time like a snowball rolling down a mountain headed right for the speakers.
