Before Beats International’s mighty Dub Be Good To Me, there was of course The SOS Band’s even mightier electro-funk chugger Just Be Good To Me. You can now make that a mighty trio with the arrival of yet another wildly different interpretation in the form of this one from Jalapeno Records’ man of the moment, Sam Redmore, who has gone for a cumbia-style take on the SOS Band original. Did someone say horns-laced skank? They might as well have done, for that’s precisely what this is, providing the bedrock over which Andrea Brown’s vocals soar. Also comes in extended version and instrumental extended version too. Yes, it will be big in the clubs.
