2. โ€œI Left My Wallet In Segundo (Vampire Remix)”

One of the earliest productions by Norman Cook, the future Fatboy Slim, this remix included on the 1992 remix album Revised Quest for the Seasoned Traveller was until recently a little known footnote. It took on new life in 2008 when producer Bangladesh slowed down a split second loop of Phife Dawg’s A-milli-billi-billi-bom chant, for the principal sample in Lil Wayne’s “A Milli.” For our purposes, it is most notable for Phifer’s convincing early ’80s skat-chat, and it’s bass-heavy reggae riddim. Come in, Mr. Deejay!
