Dancehall Joints: Super Cat "Ghetto Red Hot"

I suppose saying Super Cat was your introduction to Dance Hall is like saying MC Solaar was your intro to French hip-hop; you gotta start somewhere. This record dropped in that golden year ('92) and was the first "must-have" dancehall cut I heard. From my perspective at least, this was the record that got the whole hip-hip/dancehall scene jumping off:

Super Cat "Ghetto Red Hot" 12"
(Z-share link)

Skip directly to the "Ghetto Red Hot" hip-hop remix, if you don't already know. It's arranged by Bobby Konders and Salaam Remi; anything Salaam Remi took part of in the early 90's is vintage. The beat bounces (but hits with a wicked snare) over that sample you've definately heard before as Super Cat's chattering is at its best. On the flip side there's a hip-hop remix of Don Dada as well, but it doesn't come off quite as hard as "Ghetto Red Hot."

Includes "Ghetto Red Hot" (vocal, instrumental, and hip-hop remix) and "Don Dada" (hip-hop remix and instrumental).
