More hip hop 45s coming out of the Get On Down camp once again as they highlight one of the best singles from 1997, Camp Lo’s “Luchini”. With the fresh Dynasty sample and smooth as butter Bronx flow MCs Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede break it down to the very last compound on this track. To us, this is the embodiment of a hip hop track. Great sample, great flow, and refreshing 90’s production that still holds up to this very day. That’s why this is a classic. In fact, the record reached further than the Hot Rap charts, peaking at number 50 on the Billboard Pop charts as well. “Transcending sweeter on your aura”, “Luchini” was an anthem for many crews driving up the West Side with the top down as well as chilling in the club late night. The flip is another dope track, “Swing”, which you can hear briefly at the end of the video. Two great sides on 45, what more can you want? This special seven inch is printed on translucent blue vinyl and sits in a custom Profile 45 RPM sleeve. the sleeve is modified from Profile’s classic 12-inch sleeve design from the ‘1980s. We dig that. This record is number seven of ten in the Get On Down Juxebox 45 series, which will be released in full by the end of 2015.
When the Dutch is gone, the Lo don’t stop.”- Camp Lo
