The Incredible Bongo Band
Classic break records get reissue treatment
Mr Bongo is reissuing two LPs of some of the most sampled music in hip-hop history by the Incredible Bongo Band. Released just this week in the U.S., these reissues are slapped onto 180g vinyl with beautiful sleeves to match. Yes, the likes of Nas, the Beastie Boys, Sugarhill Gang, DJ Shadow, DJ Spinna, Fatboy Slim, Group Home, and Kanye West, just to name a few, have sampled these records, and there’s good reason. The music sizzles well beyond the classic breakbeat jam of “Apache.” One of our favorites, “Last Bongo in Belgium,” can be heard on Bongo Rock. Check out Mike Deasy on guitar!
Both can be streamed in their entirety below and purchased through the hyperlinks. Beyond these, be sure to check out Chris Read’s Incredible Bongo Band mix on Mixcloud.
