In 1974, Kool & The Gang dropped “Hollywood Swinging” and since then, the unmistakably catchy disco tune has been reworked and re-imagined through a developing hip-hop frame since the 80’s. Most famously, DJ Kool sampled the iconic disco selection with his crowd-rattler, “Let Me Clear My Throat” in 1996, and now we are seeing the evolution of the song reach the electronic spectrum in a huge way.
LA-based slugger Party Favor, has delivered his remix of “Let Me Clear My Throat,” taking DJ Kool’s vintage hip-hop classic, and warping it into a twerk-tastic banger that is bound to destroy festival stages and club crowds alike. Party Favor’s 100bpm rework loops DJ Kool’s party-commanding vocal cuts into a high-octane build as the track finally breaks into a twerked-out drop that is meant to make booties bump and crowds jump. The rump-shaking synth arrangement, matched with the uncanny level of hype “Let Me Clear My Throat” delivers, gives this remix the perfect party vibe. Moving through the track, Party Favor weaves in some quick beat box segments with Kool’s iconic microphone mayhem, making for what will be the next twerk anthem on the circuit.
