Über Camp Lo
Camp Lo, the Bronx-based duo of Sonny Cheeba and Geechie Suede, first hit the scene with "Coolie High," a buttery smooth track off the Great White Hype soundtrack. In '97 they dropped their exceptional debut album, Uptown Saturday Night, fuelled by the ultracatchy lead single "Luchini (aka This Is It)." A retro '70s theme was prevalent, from the cover art to their clothes and constant references to old school blaxploitation films. Their distinctive voices and stellar beats made the record an instant classic, chock full of hot tracks such as "Black Nostaljack," "Spanish Harlem," and others. After several years on the DL, the two reappeared in 2002 with their second full-length Let's Do It Again, a solid independent effort which was unfortunately under-promoted and slept on by most. The following year they guested on Aesop Rock's Bazooka Tooth LP, and are rumored to be working on a third album.
