Battle of the shimmy shimmies…

Prince Fatty - Shimmy shimmy ya!

Prince Fatty - Shimmy shimmy ya!

Spotify and Shazam – I am not worthy!

I heard a great cover of ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’  (originally by the Wu Tang Clan) being played a couple of times by DJs at the Big Chill.  At the time I Shazam-ed it and found out it was by Prince Fatty on Mr Bongo records. 

Being lazy, when I got home I searched Spotify for ‘Shimmy’ and as well as finding his heavy reggae cover (read my reggae cover club post for details of my obsession with these mofos…) I came across the El Michel Affair’s version sung by – as far as I can make out – a kid’s choir (lil’ dirty bastards, if you will).

Needless to say these two babies will be in the Big Chill Mix I’ll be posting on Sunday.  If you’re too impatient to wait here are some ‘videos’ courtesy of youtube:
