The Sugarhill Gang – Apache (Jump On It)


The Sugarhill Gang Apache (Jump On It) Mp3:

Apache !s an instrumental written by English composer Jerry Lordan. The original version was by guitarist Bert Weedon, but Lordan did not like the version. The Shadows recorded “Apache” in June 1960.

A 1973 version by Michael Viner and a funk group called The Incredible Bongo Band added a bongo drum introduction and included more percussion. The drum break was played by Jim Gordon. Although this version was not a hit on its initial release, it became heavily sampled in early hip hop music, including by Afrika Bambaataa, who cited its influence.

In 1981, the rap group known as the Sugarhill Gang covered the Incredible Bongo Band‘s version of the song on its second album, 8th Wonder.
