JOHN LEE HOOKER: Boom Boom (ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM edit) Free downloadBoom Boom! No, Basil Brush is not in the area but rather inveterate edit artists, Rocknrolla Soundsystem who ‘woke up this morning’ to take on the 1961 single from the mighty John Lee Hooker. Well, I say ‘this morning’ though obviously they did spend a bit of time cooking this one up. Whereas the original was a lively twelve bar blues stomp praising the way a certain fox walked and talked, the boys have transformed it into a squelchy wah, strings n’ Rhodes filled slab of psychedelia that is an altogether more smouldering affair. Comparing the two back to back, you wonder how they could even come up with such a remix concept let alone get it to work. But work it does and like a bastard too – slack not in your downloading. Cop it below…
