Mike Delgado Byrd Man's Revenge EP (Sunflower) 1999



Never has a loop sounded as good as this! I think this is from a Donald Byrd tune which could explain the name but not 100% on that. Wherever it's from, it's the business.

This was MASSIVE back in the day! Used to get asked to rewind this the moment the first verse came in.

What a KILLER tune this is. Classic house music from Dina Vass. This starts off with the instantly recognisable bassline then builds up to a magnificent soulful vocal. Sounded different to anything else at the time and that's what gives it so much appeal in my view. The BOMB.
