  1. Jerome Isma-Ae Remakes The OT Quartet’s Hold That Sucker Down!

    Rollo (of Faithless) and Rob D (of Clubbed To Death fame – you know featured on The Matrix Soundtrack) are the O.T. Quartet. They produced this awesome track back in the mid 90s which was a huge hit back then in the club world. It has the trademark Rollo/Cheeky Records sound and I loved it back then and I still love it now. It’s a classic masterpiece that doesn’t get boring after countless listens. I’m glad Jerome Isma-Ae remade it and brought the track into the sound of now at clubs. It’s fun and I dig it and I’m sure you’ll dig it too if you like anything by Faithless or Rollo you will certainly dig Hold That Sucker Down by Jerome Isma-Ae. And if you don’t know anything about The O.T. Quartet then this will certainly be the way for you to discover the great Cheeky Records and Rollo sound. Check out both original and the remake below.

    I had not heard of this track Feeling Good (Epic Mix) by Huff & Herb back when it came out in 1997. It’s basically a sample of Feeling Good by Nina Simone. This of course the Epic Mix is remixed by the genius Rollo of Faithless fame and the brother of Dido! Anyway I first heard it several years later when Buddha Bar 1 came out. It’s a pretty darn good mix and of course a remix by Rollo with his signature sound. And I love how Nina Simone’s voice is perfect against the electronic dance beats! Pretty risque pic of Nina below … didn’t know she did that type of stuff! In the nude!!!!!!!!

    Check it out below and compare the original with a very minimal background well at least the first part of the song is pretty minimal and the Huff & Herb version with the Rollo Epic Mix. The video is below too. Not anything special and it’s pretty dated but worth a look! Also check out the black and white vintage animation with the song Feeling Good at Dailymotion.
