Track of the Week: Bost & Bim Feat Brisa Roché & Lone Ranger – Jamaican Boy
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Bost & Bim Ft Brisa Roché & Lone Ranger – Jamaican Boy
(I must thank Gilles Peterson for this one.) The Parisian duo of Bost & Bim do one thing, and do one thing well–remix popular music with a reggae twist. On their MySpace page, they rework everything from Justin Timberlake to Marvin Gaye. However, their rework of Estelle’s American Boy is stellar. With French (county?) singer Brisa Roché (website probably not safe for work…you know how the French do) taking over Estelle’s part, the track is a simple, yet effective rework of the Kanye produced tune. You can cop Jamaican Boy on iTunes.
The track is available for download at iTunes as well as on vinyl 7 inch soon.
