Just in time for the flood of warm sunshine, drinks with umbrellas, cool shades, and lounging on a beach somewhere, Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band return with even more heat on their new seven in via Big Crown Records. “Xxplosive b/w Burn” is a double header of that hot hot heat that you need for your turntable. After their scorching debut on Big Crown and a sophomore full length coming in September, these two tracks are exactly what the doctor ordered, and we mean it. The band get on some West Coast steez with a cover of Dr. Dre’s anthem “Xxplosive” done of course in a BRSB style. Steel drums ablaze, they body this track which will no doubt be one of the hottest tracks of the summer. But just flip it over and you’ve once again get some East Coast love as they take on Mobb Deep’s “Burn”. Done way before the unfortunate passing of Prodigy, it is now a fitting tribute to one of the best in the game. Again and again, Big Crown continue to set the bar higher and higher, which forces other labels to do the same, hence upping the quality of these forty five releases around the world. Never one to back away from a challenge, BRSB have got a set of bangers on them, plus two records that are both the Summer anthems you’ve been looking for. Stream both sides below and pre-order after the stream.
The flip “Burn” is tough!
