Jam Hot: Week 25
Every week on my show, I choose one record that isn't just hot, it's JAM HOT and I play it every day.
This week, it's a bassline cover of a classic UKG track from 10 years ago "Addictive - Chocolate"
Who are Addictive?
• Addictive are childhood friends Louise Bagan and Aisha Stuart
• They hail from London's East End, Plaistow to be exact
• They started out in an R&B style but when their management company signed T2, they started making bassline and were championed on 1Xtra by DJ Cameo and DJ Q.
• During the day, Aisha is a social worker and Louise helps her brother out with his fruit and veg business
What is "Chocolate"?
• Chocolate is a cover of Shanks & Bigfoot's UKG Classic "Sweet Like Chocolate"
• The original managed to make it to #1 in the national chart in 1999 and led to BRIT and MOBO nominations for Shanks and Bigfoot
• T2 has produced this updated version but there is currently no release date planned.
Addictive will be passing through 1Xtra towers this Thursday 19th July and will perform exclusively and acoustically for us! Check it out every day on the show.
