Sammy Bananas – Want 2 Get (Iesha Bootleg)
Two years ago, Sammy Bananas started a Kickstarter to fund Bootlegs Vol. 1, a vinyl pressing of four of his favorite bootlegs. His fans responded enthusiastically, and the project was an overwhelming success.
Now he’s trying to fund Bootlegs Vol. 2, which features remastered versions of his “Let The Groove Get In,” “Run 2 Me,” and “Lovehate Thing” bootlegs, plus the previously unreleased “Want 2 Get:” Sammy’s take on Another Bad Creation’s “Iesha.” He smooths out the track, turning the peppy 1990 single into a flowing, mature house song. That said, the sincerity of the vocal loop and his twinkling instrumental maintain the original’s aura of youthful curiosity and fascination. It’s a masterful bootleg — exactly the kind you’d want on vinyl.
Bootlegs Vol. 2 is a vinyl-only release limited to 250 copies. Anyone who funds the project on Kickstarter will be sent download links for each track once the project reaches its funding goal. You can fund Bootlegs Vol. 2 here, and you can hear the rest of the songs on Sammy’s SoundCloud page.
