The Bucketheads – The Bomb! (these Sounds Fall Into My Mind)



COD: MS474 Categoria: Tag:


There can’t be many house records that are as instantly recognisable as Bucketheads’ ‘The Bomb’, a killer, mid-’90s Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez production that mixed his own sweaty, bombastic, loose-limbed house beats (chopped and edited to provide instant dancefloor satisfaction) with snippets from Chicago disco classic ‘Street Player’. You’ll find that epic original version tucked away on the flipside of these reissue, with two previously unheard ‘Massivedrum’ remixes on the A. The EP opening ‘Remix’ places the original Chicager a chunker bassline and contemporary house beats, while the accompanying ‘Dub’ concentrates on the beats, bassline and the producer’s own sneaky samples. Both new versions are decent, but Gonzalez’s original mix is still hard to beat.
