‘Every Trick In The Book’ is the new single from Bristol-based beat makers, The Allergies.
True to form, they’ve whipped up a sun-kissed groover that’ll add a splash of colour to your day, whatever the weather.
This A-side takes a vintage vocal sample from the ‘Queen of Rock n Roll’ herself – none other than Tina Turner! Yeah, you know ‘Private Dancer’, ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’, ‘We Don’t Need Another hero’ etc. That Tina Turner! Jeez Louise!
Well the guys have supplemented her pipes with loops from a long-forgotten Latin boogie 12”, and layers of live horns, cuts, drums, and FX, to give us a joyous mid-tempo groover that you’ll be humming for weeks.
While the flipside takes it back to ’91, as long-time Allergies collaborator, Andy Cooper, reworks his hero Big Daddy Kane’s classic ‘Nuff Respect’.
This cover version takes the fast raps of the original, tweaks them, and fires them back over an explosive backdrop of scratches and b-boy beats. Respect due.
