The Allergies 'Let Them Know' (Jalapeno)
5th June 2020
'Let Them Know ft Cuban Brothers' / 'Lightning In A Bottle ft Andy Cooper'
With the new Allergies album 'Say The Word' on the horizon, the boys have another single release to butter up the 45 slingers, and butter us up they do with a double-sider. Residing on the A we find a new collaboration with festival favourites The Cuban Brothers on 'Let Them Know', a Latinized groove with a catchy chorus that has crossover written all over it, I can see this entertaining the masses in a festi-field on a summers afternoon (if that ever happens again). Meanwhile, as a special treat on the B there's a single only club rocker with MC Andy Cooper, and as you might have guessed from this reviewer, this is the real heat on this wax. For 'Lightning In A Bottle', the guys expertly flip an R&B nugget for Andy to flow upon with phatback drums and heavy bass, what can go wrong? Nothing. I can't see any DJ passing on this one, except any hardcore Bristolian DJs who can't get past Andy's use of the word 'Brizzle'! Funky as ****, get on it pronto.
