||Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band return with another instantly classic 45 guaranteed to be all
over DJs set lists. With their sophomore full length coming in September, they treat us to
another bomb of a two sider.
Side A is a cover of the Dr Dre hit “XXplosive” done up in proper BRSB fashion, smashing
drums and steel pans playing the lead and bass lines. They take this one into new territory
by adding synth parts and dubbed out horn lines playing Nate Dogg’s infamous vocal hook
Side B takes on one of NYCity’s grimiest Hip Hop club anthems, Mobb Deep’s “Burn”. We
decided to do this tune and demoed it out long before the unfortunate passing of Prodigy.
Unfortunately, he will never get to hear this cover, and that has been one of the nicest things
in covering some of these more current Hip Hop tunes. Rest In Peace P.
BRSB manages to do it again…..a version equally as raw and punchy as the original. Pans
bang out the iconic riff from the original, theremin ushers in the changes, and the low rubble
of the synth bass is sure to crush the subwoofers.
