Chicago – Street Player ………The Bomb
In the Mid 90′s The Bucketheads released into clubland a monster record called The Bomb, I can remember being on the dance floor at The Cafe De Paris, London when I first heard this record and watching the whole place go off. The long build up of the tune was so teasing, it just carried on and on for almost half of the 14 min long track before it exploded into a catchy funk riff that was sample from Chicago’s Street Player. The Bucketheads was the brainchild of US producer/DJ Kenny Dope and was originally started as a backalsh to the commercial eurodance scene. The Bomb had such dancefloor sucess that it created a turning point in club land and revived an interest in US disco influenced house music. For me The Bomb died of an overuse during the mid 90′s, however it cannot be denied it was a true dance floor classic.
