Technotronic Feat. Ya Kid K – Get Up (Before The Night Is Over) (The Wing Command Mix) [1990]

Apologies for the lack of posts, ive been out of town for a couple of weeks and havent been near a computer for much of that time, bliss!

Anyway, this classic popped up on the iPhone this morning, a quality remix of the classic cut from Technotronic. Yes, the vocals havent aged well at all, were they really ever any good? However, the rest of the track is a cracker, a nice laid back bassline groove and the break lifted from Funky Drummer. Its even got the classic “woo yeah” sample in it, awesome.

  1. Without the unique vocals of Ya Kid K, that song would have been just another funky instrumental beat. So don’t be dissin.

    • Hey man,

      Thanks for the reply and perhaps your right for calling me out. I am being a little too harsh on the Kid K, especially since I secretly harbor a love for “Spin That Wheel” and “Rockin over the beat”, both of which have instrumentals that have aged far worse than the vocals!

      Cheers for stopping by mate!

  2. I see Kid K just released a new video too: http://youtu.be/-zmPN8kBX0A
