Maxwell D : Serious
It's already massive on underground garage floors.More on
Seconds out... the boxing ring comes to the dancefloor courtesy of this UK garridge/boomshanka dancehall crossover anthem. It's already massive on underground garage floors, mainly thanks to MC Maxwell D's rolling vocal delivery (think Shabba Ranks jamming with So Solid Crew). Sure, they sample the theme from Rocky, but the production is still dead on. The remix from Jameson (who turned Destiny's Child's 'Survivor' into the smash it was) maxes out the bassline and adds staccato strings for a well-rounded knockout punch.
