A few months back, Bacao Rhythm and Steel dropped a great 45, covering J Dilla. There's talk of an album the way from the band, but in the meantime, check their great remix of Lee Fields...
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band lend their unique blend of steel drum melody and pounding drums to Lee's unmistakeable raspy tone giving the tune an upbeat sunshiney vibe. They are set to release their full length debut on Truth & Soul Records in 2015.
Marco Polo brought his signature slamming drums to the table balanced out by the smooth keys and the raspy delivery of the man himself, Mr. Lee Fields. Marco Polo has done production for the who's who of Hip Hop music including Pharoahe Monch, Masta Ace, M.O.P., and Large Professor to name a few. We were really excited to see what he would do with Lee's tune and to put it lightly we are not surprised."
Both remixes are coming soon to a 45 near you on Truth & Soul Records. Digital out now.
