EL BOMBA: Cop Dat Shit (2012)

Hot on the heels of Basement Freaks’ Gold Digga is another breaks/ ghetto funker that pares an old hip-hop vocal hook down to its hookiest part though in this case the artist is El Bomba and the hook invites us to “Cop Dat Shit.” That’s ‘invite’ in the Mafia sense of course since, by the time you hear the words “cop dat shit,” you’ve already been ‘copping’ a minute of throbbing buzzsaw bassquake. Possibly I shouldn’t have listened to this with a hangover. On a remix tip, EZ Icarus cops that ghetto swing, J Sound cops that ghetto P-Funk/Electro but it’s Niles Philips who cops the medal for his more soothing, piano-tinkly breakbeat skunk.
