DIRTY DUBSTERS feat. BASS NACHO & BLACKOUT JA: Real Bad Boys (2013)

Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you? – asked Inner Circle back in ’87. It’s been a long time coming but the answer is obviously to rework the track in a digi-dancehall, nasty-ass bass stylee, call it Real Bad Boys and send it out the front to deal with ‘them’ while you scarper out the back. Which is basically what Dirty Dubsters have done – as well as replacing Calton Coffie’s irie vocals with the rather more ominous Bass Nacho and Blackout JA. While all that’s going on, Run Tingz‘ junglist remix is unpacking an arsenal on the roof and the Basement Freaks remix is calmly sat on the sofa generating a vast cloud of sensi-smoke to obfuscate Babylon – should they gain access. Three mixes then, one at least of which should make you get on the dancefloor and sweat. Oh god. Who fucking mentioned ‘Inner Circle’ and ‘sweat’ in the same paragraph? All together now – a lalalala long, alalalala long, long, li, long long long…
