Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – Love For The Sake Of Dub / Grilled (7″) [Big Crown Records BCR163]
Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, who are infamous at this point for their vast and awless catalog of 7”s, put yet more points on the board with this unstoppable two-sider.
The A side is what is known in the DJ world as a “get out of jail free card”, meaning if the party isn’t going well, put this on and voila!!! It’s a party again.
BRSB cover Claudja Barry’s mid-tempo disco classic “Love For The Sake Of Love” which they tip into a dubby steel pan affair and aptly retitle “Love For The Sake Of Dub”. A punching drum break starts the record and all bets are off when the melody comes in on the pans.
The B side “Grilled” is a BRSB original composition that is as they say “cooking with grease”. An African funk inspired tune with two drummers that give it a wildstyle energy that is sure to burn up dances around the world
