In 1993, as dancehall’s crossover popularity seemed to be peaking, Big Beat Records launched a short-lived reggae imprint, Big Beat Reggae. One of the label’s first releases was a 12” featuring this hip-hop remix of “Bam Bam” handled by influential New York radio and club DJ, Stretch Armstrong. The version, along with the original “Bam Bam” recording, would also appear on the 1993 compilation, Buyaka: The Ultimate Dance Hall Collection.
