Justin Timberlake – Let The Groove Get In (Sammy Bananas Bootleg)
If Justin Timberlake’s “Let The Groove Get In” is an exemplification of Latin and African musical styles converging with JT’s voice, then the bootleg by Fools Gold’s own Sammy Bananas is the disco and funky fraternal twin.
You would confuse this bootleg for the original based off the first few seconds, but shortly after, Sammy thrusts you into his funky rework. The first segment is followed by a chilling, relaxing breakdown; which takes you into the final dance between JT’s voice and bass guitar. The grooving bass guitar ties the whole rework together. Cap the track off with the title and you have yourself a hit.
This bootleg most notably retains the lyrics from the original: Sammy takes Justin’s voice and lays it on top of a disco-funk production. This is done so well that listeners who have heard neither the original nor this bootleg would easily assume Sammy’s is an original piece by itself.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the best kind of remix/bootleg.
By the way, did I mention this amazing piece of work is free to download? Get on that!
