Shawn Lee – Apache b/w Bongo Rock ’73

Famed composer and multi-instrumentalist Shaw Lee is never NOT working on something and one of his latest projects amongst many, he takes on a pair of foundations in Hip Hop DJ’ing with his signature sound and gives them a twist that pays homage to the original, yet makes it completely new.  Originally recorded by The Incredible Bongo Band, both “Apache” b/w “Bongo Rock ’73” should be very familiar to any and everyone at this point but you’ve never heard it like this! Keeping in with the original structure, Shaw Lee’s recreations of these Bboy classics are spot on and funky in every way and brings these timeless gems new life.
