1. Incredible Bongo Band ‘Bongo Rock’ 40th Anniversary Mix by Chris Read (AUDIO).

    The Mr Bongo record label has put out the 40th Anniversary editions of
    The Incredible Bongo Band
    ‘s seminal Bongo Rock and The Return of The Incredible Bongo Band albums, and to spread the word there’s this cool-ass mix by Chris Read . The group’s powerful cover version of “Apache,” with the still mind-blowing drum break, deeply impacted hip-hop production not to mention b-boy and b-girl battles. Bongo Band’s other output has been sampled and interpolated as well, as demonstrated here.

    Says the Who Sampled blog: In support of those releases, WhoSampled has teamed up with Mr Bongo to present this exclusive mixtape celebrating 40 years of the Incredible Bongo Band in sample based music: Original Bongo Band cuts alongside those who have sampled them from Sugarhill Gang and West Street Mob to Amy Winehouse, The Roots and Goldie via Kool G Rap, BDP and many more.
