Von Pea ft Willi Dudat – Steppin’ Outro

July 7, 2010 1 comment

I must be wrong here, but… is this the first rap track to flip a “Steppin’ Out” sample? This song reached the hip-hop heights of PeanutButterWolf’s “BadMeaningGood” DJ compilation, as well as holding it down as a playlist staple for Jono Coleman back in his Virgin Radio days for nearly five years (and, when you think about it, surely Russ & Jono, what with their big personalities, health problems from excessive consumption, and a split that saw one disappear while one fell into mainstream abhorrence truly were the UK’s Big Pun and Fat Joe?)

Those of you fortunate enough to not be music writers will be unaware of how often reviews get bumped, dropping, or simply ignored. This can be for any number of reasons: the site has too much content, editorial confusion, incorrect tone of piece, or just the fact that it isn’t another fucking article about the Foals. Here at ILB we’re happy to present the following review of Tanya Morgan’s “Tanya Morgan Is A Rap Group” which was written for, but didn’t appear in, Drowned In Sound earlier this year. Read more…
