Help With A '70s Track

Sun Jul 07, 2013 5:46 pm

This has been wrecking my head all day and I can't get to the bottom of it. Anyone know what '70s track this Basement Jaxx record is basically a re-working of?

I had a hunch it might be Brass Construction's Movin', but it's not that. Could still be them, but I don't know what track. Maybe Superfly can help here!

I don't think it's a reworking of anything.

Oh it is, it is . . . I could hum along with it as soon as I heard it. A lot of records now sample older tracks, but this is more than that. It's actually very close to the original.

The song contains a sampling of this:

Bolivar - Merengue

Mortyman beat me to it.
It's hard to get information on these electronic dance track remix artist. I've heard the original before but not sure who the artist was.
I've heard a band in Chicago play this song live at The Note in Wicker Park.
It was awesome!
Song is great!
