If the majority of bass music producers were even half as talented as C.C. Lemonhead and Jay Ski, the genre might have become more than a hokey cul-de-sac off hip-hop road. The Jacksonville, FL, production team of Lemonhead and Ski were responsible not only for the anthems “Whoot (There It Is)” and “Tootsie Roll” (as 95 South and 69 Boyz, respectively), but they also struck platinum with Quad City DJ’s’ “C’mon n’ Ride It (The Train).” One of the biggest singles of 1996, the song was a relentlessly catchy workout full of witty, shoutable lyrical couplets. Just as the duo’s previous triumphs had, “C’mon n’ Ride It” extricated the raunch from bass music, but retained and even expanded on the booty-shaking rhythms, almost to cartoonish proportions. While “C’mon n’ Ride It” was a success as a single, applying its formula to a bankable album was a trickier prospect. Lemonhead and Ski didn’t necessarily succeed with Get on up and Dance — it suffers from repetition, and nothing is as undeniably catchy as the single.
