ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM: Going Back To Cali/ Jolene How You Want It (2017)

Rocknrolla Soundsystem Going Back To CaliRating: ★★★★★ Edit kings Rocknrolla Soundsystem trump all previous efforts with this massive double-A side featuring two mutant mashups. On the one hand you’ve got Jolene How You Want It which splices 2Pac, Dolly Parton and a certain famous Jackson (no, really) for thumping nu-disco boogie-hop action and then, just when thought you knew where things were at, they flip the script with the even bigger Going Back To Cali. Oh what – as in LL “Going back to Cali – I don’t think so” Cool J? Nope – the other one. That’s right – Mr Biggie Smalls’ Going Back To Cali (same title, completely different song) with a beat forged from – wait for it – the Bee Gees and Larry Levan disco boogie outfit the NYC Peech Boys.
