ok its just a diy acapella on top of some jazzed up beat, with a simple drumloop, but nonetheless this works. its a classic and even trying to pretend that it has anything on this huge huge classic tune would be wrong, but seriously the original is one of the tunes that was like a hiphop Mantra in the nineties and just seeing someone give it a different spin is welcome by me. Watch how the horns build up and interact more and more towards the end, in contrast to the quite monotoneous intro. By the end of the tune you ll be swinging. Reminds me of Premiers classic work with Branford Marsalis.
