The Martin Brothers set the pace with a characteristically heavy house bass line, the twisted “let that booty clap” vocal sample dancing over the driving groove. Zombie Disco Squad lets the buttock-smacking claps take centre stage, while a clever percussion score and perfectly timed ellipsis make for certified ghetto house dance floor material. Dirtybird debutant by way of Croydon, Plastician, focuses on the bass elements of the original, creating a swaying dubstep rhythm where booty claps become glock pops before your very eyes, while Mark Starr opts for a similarly languid groove, without losing sight of Kill Frenzy’s playful genre-splicing.
Make That Booty Clap feat. DJ Funk became an instant milestone in the dirtybird canon and it’s great to see Kill Frenzy’s debut receiving such masterful reworks a year on.
