About this item

On a handy 45 tip, Breaks & Beats are back with another pair of extended B-boy / DJ bangers from Lafayette Afro-Rock band and Gaz. Their latest seven-inch excursion begins with a tidy revision of Lafayette Afro-Rock Band's brilliant "Hihache", a low-slung favourite rich in lolloping, head nodding drum breaks, jazzy bass, flanged funk guitars and fuzzy horn motifs. The new version is deferential towards its source material, extending breaks here and there whilst leaving much of the tune in tact. Fans of LL Cool J may recognise this jam from its appearance in "Jingling Baby". One of the most doubled-up drum breaks in hip-hop history takes pride of place on side B, where Gaz's Salsoul released wiggler "Sing Sing" gets the re-edit treatment.
