When we were wee and copping white label UK garage twelves in like, the early oughties, our anxiety at spending entire paychecks in one record-shop excursion always dispersed when we heard the wobbly bass with the tweety (no twitter) treble. We never imagined that 9000 years later, we would be listening to kuduro that reminded us of those days but improved upon them to the umpteenth, yet still had the same vocalist as the garage singles. Sizzla! Jah praise your longevity. This Buraka remix of Dre Skull's newest joint makes us wish we had a fog machine and energy drink waiter following us around at all times, instead of a camera crew and Adnan Ghalib.
