See What Deh?

How is it that it took until this past weekend for me to stumble upon* this utterly bizarre, Bill Laswell-produced, hip-hop-infused 1987 version of “Boops” by Sly and Robbie?

Be sure to watch at least up to the eskimo kiss and cello duet —

*thx to DJ C for a fun-filled afternoon of random riddim walking pon di YouChube

    That was crazy – Bassline sounds like the Liquid Liquid sample that got used for “white lines”

    “White Lines” was totally my first association too, Tone!

    And plenty of other hip-hop (and reggae) references scattered throughout.


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
