A Tribe Called Quest – Bonita Applebum (Remix)

Classics: A Tribe Called Quest Vs Sir Piers & Si Ashton – Bonita Applebum (Curious House Mix)

“Do I love you? Do I lust for you? Am I a sinner because I do the two? Can you let me know? Right now, please, Bonita Applebum…”
A memorable intro which has pretty much made its way. Itself being the one of the memorable ‘Bonita Applebum’. The follow up to A Tribe Called Quest‘s ‘I Left My Wallet In El Segundo’. And, in the meantime, the second single from the band’s ‘People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm’ 1990 debut-album. Itself the subject of countless remixes along with time.

Sir Piers definitely deserves his title. First, as a long time friend who’s always behaved as a Gentleman. Then second, because of the distinction that always prevails on his works. This remix of the classic ‘Bonita Applebum’ makin’ no exception. Therefore keepin’ the (Hip-Hop) spirit of the original alive, although on a fiercer beat tailored for the floor. Piers and Si Ashton expanding its jazziness and adding extra vocal parts courtesy of Simon Green and Yasmin James. Thus turning their rework into a definitive Hip-Hop Jazz/Funk masterpiece…

Released back in 2001 and still sounding so fresh…

What’s the value of your vinyl record?
