— FEATURED ARTISTS: LOU BEGA —
LOU BEGA is an interesting character. While he’s largely known as a one hit wonder (and a bit of a cheesy one at that), he deserves credit for combining sounds from the 40s & 50s with modern electronic percussion a good decade before CARO EMERALD, and SWING music really became a scene. By the time he was a teenager, he had already lived in Italy, Germany, and Miami, USA. As an adult, he has traveled the world extensively and still continues to do so. Though there is only 1 real chart success under his name, Bega has released 5 albums, made loads of television appearances and found success in licensing his music and image for video games and cartoons. A truly unique artist with a natural flare for multiculturalism and a real zest for life.
That notable hit I refer to is MAMBO NO. 5, ofcourse. Back in 1999, I was interning at MUCH MUSIC. Whenever the video for this song would come on (which was often), all the ladies in my department would get up and start dancing. It’s a fond memory that I have every time I hear this tune. Grab yourself a digital copy ripped from my very own 12″ VINYL PROMO.
OR you can BUY THIS RECORD, which has rocked many a 90s Night dancefloor. Cheesy or not, people go APE when I drop it.

** EVERYONE in Toronto watched ELECTRIC CIRCUS in the 90s. Apparently, it also had a loyal American following, being the only place to see and hear dance music videos during its hay day. So, how many of you remember the THEME SONG?
*** If somebody gets me ONE OF THESE, I’ll totally wear it everywhere.
