[ Big Crown / 7in ]
Release Date: Friday 11 June 2021
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, the kings of "wait, what is this!!!", are back with another two-sider that has a little something for everyone. Both songs are pulled from 'Expansions', their forthcoming full-length album.
The A-side is a gritty, gully, and neck snapping cover of the Timbaland produced Jay-Z club hit "Dirt Off Your Shoulder". The signature crushing Bacao drums start the show and the moment they start playing the top line on the steel pans all bets are off. They push the tune to new heights and places adding brass arrangements and working around the original riff never losing the groove. The way they walk the line between the original and making it their own will woo Hip Hop heads and Funk enthusiasts alike.
The B-side finds BRSB ushering everyone to the floor as they cover Sylvester's underground classic "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight".
