Fall is less than a month away, but that hasn’t stopped New York’s DJ Ease from celebrating the warmth of summer with a new turntablist routine. It’s good timing, too, as Ease just competed in the 2015 DMC US Finals.
In the video above, Ease is shown juggling Kool & The Gang’s 1974 classic “Summer Madness” in the streets of Brooklyn. He also gets busy with Da Bush Babees and Mos Def’s ’90s hip-hop track, “The Love Song,” which samples the Kool & The Gang anthem.
According to WhoSampled, “Summer Madness” has been sampled 142 times as of today. In addition to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “Summertime,” the track was also used in Snoop Dogg’s “Doggy Dogg World,” Ice Cube’s “You Know How We Do It,” Aaliyah’s “A Girl Like You,” and Adina Howard’s “Freak Like Me.”
