Latin Grammys - Action Bronson

tempo: 85 bpm

the dj's take: Song #5 in session 61 (8:05):

Quick note on the intro - there's a little pattern where you've got the softer funky guitar, then the louder horns pop in with the signature riff. If you're beatmatching against a softer song, consider cutting out the horn part and isolating the guitar-only section. Here's how it looked when I mixed over Brandy's I Wanna Be Down in Logic Pro X:

Re: the music video, amazing to see what Action Bronson was doing back in 1995. He was winning World's Strongest Man, and I was in high school, beating Chrono Trigger and raining 3's on my cousin in NBA Live '95. Greatness comes in many forms and forums.
