Kool & The Gang: “Summertime Madness” (Rhythm Scholar Remix)

I like this new remix by Rhythm Scholar on so many different levels. It not only makes me want to listen to more of this top notch material, but it has reminded me that Kool & Gang’s funky sound has been sampled by so many different artists. The beat for “Summertime Madness alone has been used by heavy-hitting music titans such as The Fresh Prince, Ice-Cube, and Gang Starr. “You Know How We Do It” by Ice Cube is maybe one of my favourite songs (regardless of genre) of all-time, and I now feel like a sucker for not knowing that the grooves were actually samples of “Summertime Madness.” This goes to show how ageless certain compositions are, and how legendary Kool & The Gang has become. Enjoy!
