Freestyle signings Speedometer have a crack at the Eddie Bo/ Inez Cheatham classic sampled by DJ Shadow, Fat Joe and The Snugs among others. They rope in vocalists Ria Currie and Myles Sanko and re-imagine the gritty New Orleans original as something a bit lighter and faster and maybe a bit more like JB would have done it. New LP ‘The Shakedown’ is due later this month. Press guff below links and vid:
