Album Review

If the majority of bass music producers were even half as talented as C.C. Lemonhead and Jay Ski, the genre might have become more than a hokey cul-de-sac off hip-hop road. The Jacksonville, FL, production team of Lemonhead and Ski were responsible not only for the anthems "Whoot (There It Is)" and "Tootsie Roll" (as 95 South and 69 Boyz, respectively), but they also struck platinum with Quad City DJ's' "C'mon n' Ride It (The Train)." One of the biggest singles of 1996, the song was a relentlessly catchy workout full of witty, shoutable lyrical couplets. Just as the duo's previous triumphs had, "C'mon n' Ride It" extricated the raunch from bass music, but retained and even expanded on the booty-shaking rhythms, almost to cartoonish proportions. While "C'mon n' Ride It" was a success as a single, applying its formula to a bankable album was a trickier prospect. Lemonhead and Ski didn't necessarily succeed with Get on up and Dance — it suffers from repetition, and nothing is as undeniably catchy as the single. But as nothing more than a party record, Get on Up is a harmless, humorous, and entertaining diversion. "Work Baby Work (The Prep)" is almost a dub plate of "C'mon n' Ride It," "Summer Jam" reinterprets the summery piano line of Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" over a rap that cops the meter of "Tootsie Roll," and "Hey DJ" steals Ready for the World's "Love You Down" (just as INOJ later would for her So So Def-affiliated single "Love You Down"). Hovering at an average of 132 beats per minute, Get on up and Dance also never makes the mistake of including a ballad or an unfunny skit. It's all about dancing, all the time. Two "C'mon n' Ride It" remixes close out the party on a familiar and fun note.

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s

The production team of C.C. Lemonhead (Nathaniel Orange) and Jay Ski (Johnny McGowan) met as high-school pals in Jacksonville, FL. Interested in the bottom-heavy sound of Miami bass, the pair began producing and worked with Icy J and Three Grand before creating the most popular bass anthem of all time, "Whoot (There It Is)." Recorded as 95 South, the single went platinum three times over in 1993 and led to work with Dis-n-Dat ("Freak Me Baby") and for 69 Boyz, the double-platinum single "Tootsee...
