Dedicated to my good mate Moiz who’s leaving for pastures new, heading to Germany today. He dropped this classic on me a couple of weeks ago, i’d forgotten all about it too which is criminal as I used to cane the shit out of this track. Taking a massive chunk of Herbie Handcock’s “Cantaloupe Island” and sticking a quality rhyme section over the top makes this one of my all time favourite Acid Jazz tunes. Yep, I said it, Acid Jazz. Remember that? Before Jamiroquai took it all for himself and corporatized the whole genre, we had classic Jazz tracks being remixed with funky hip hop Rhythms and modern synth work? Quality stuff.
One heck of an amazing Acid Jazz track this is. With the fusion of hip-hop beats and trumpets, it really packs a punch to listen to. Definitely a song to listen when in any mood; the upbeat has been able to calm me down in my most difficult times. This is one heck of a great track from US3.
