"Doo Wop (That Thing)" is a one-off single bringing to light an exciting collaboration between two prolific and influential artists: Colombia-based, British-born producer and musician Quantic and the Grammy nominated Chilean MC and singer Anita Tijoux (also known as Ana Tijoux).
The A-Side, as you will no doubt have clocked, is a cover of Lauryn Hill's hit "Doo Wop (That Thing)"; the lyrics flipped into Spanish by Tijoux, whose understated yet charismatic flow makes her a beguiling vocal presence, and a Cumbia beat giving an alternative, tropical slant on the late '90s hip hop/R 'n' B classic. Beats, bass, guitar and accordion are provided by Quantic, alongside a horn section comprising some of the musicians who have featured on his Flowering Inferno dub/reggae project.
The B-side brings another cover version, the Spanish language song "Entre Rejas" (translation: "Behind Bars") which was made famous in Latin America and the Spanish speaking Caribbean by the great accordionist and singer Lisandro Meza. The emotive song tells the story in the first person of a character who is in jail and his/her lover has forgotten about him/her inside; and this perfectly pitched rendition is sure to bring it to the attention of a new worldwide audience.
