Los Del Mar – Macarena

Los Del Mar
“Macarena”
1996 Pulse-8 Records (UK)
CD LOSE 101

01. Macarena (Radio Version)
02. Macarena (Mar Fe Mix)
03. Macarena (Gregorio Mix)
04. Macarena (Beat Foundation Full Frontal Mix)
05. Macarena (Beat Foundation Infinity Dub)

INFO > No, this isn’t another April Fool’s joke. Yes, “Macarena” is one of the most annoying one hit wonders of all time, so it’s surprising to find a couple of great remixes here. When Pulse-8 licensed the single for a UK release, the label thankfully enlisted Beat Foundation to overhaul the tune as a progressive house workout—the ‘Infinity Dub’ is a hidden gem among BF’s credits.

Trivia > This is not the original “Macarena,” but rather a cover version—Spanish duo Los Del Rio wrote and recorded the song that became an international hit in 1995 and spawned the short-lived dance craze.
