Los Del Mar – Macarena

Los Del Mar
1996 Pulse-8 Records (UK)

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.
