  • John W. Bowman Jr. (born 1958), better known by his stage name DJ Kool, is an American DJ and rapper who produced several popular rap singles in the late 1980s. Raised in Washington, D.C., his influence from years of working the go-go and rap circuits became apparent in his music. In 1996, he released the chart topping single "Let Me Clear My Throat" on American Recordings, which peaked at #8 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1997. The song prominently featured a sample of "The 900 Number" by The 45 King, (that song featured a sample from Marva Whitney's "Unwind Yourself", repeated over a breakbeat for six minutes). The song also began by sampling "Hollywood Swinging" by Kool and the Gang. The song is a recognizable dance floor-filler, and the track remains popular to this day. DJ Kool was featured on two tracks on Will Smith's 2005 album Lost and Found. He was also featured on Mýa's 2006 single "Ayo!" from her 2008 album Liberation. (en)
  • DJ Kool seguì negli anni '80 i Rare Essence come warm-up dj, prima di essere messo sotto contratto dalla CLR Records. Negli anni '90 realizzò vari singoli di successo commerciale, il più famoso dei quali fu Let Me Clear My Throat, uscito per American Recordings. La canzone contiene un campione dal classico hip hop The 900 Number di DJ Mark the 45 King, (che a sua volta campionava Unwind Yourself di Marva Whitney). All'interno del pezzo, nell'introduzione, si può riconoscere anche un campione di "Hollywood Swinging" di Kool and the Gang. La canzone divenne immediatamente un riempipista e rimase popolare a lungo. Di recente DJ Kool è comparsa in Ayo!, singolo del 2006 di Mýa, dall'album del 2008 Liberation. Due tracce di Lost and Found, di Will Smith, vedono la sua collaborazione. (it)
  • DJ Kool, właśc. John W. Bowman Jr. - raper urodzony w Waszyngtonie, który w późnych latach 90. wyprodukował kilka popularnych singli. W jego twórczości wyraźnie widać wpływy muzyki go-go. We wczesnych latach 80., zanim dołączył do CLR Records, Kool pracował jako DJ rozgrzewający grupy Rare Essence. W roku 1996, nagrał swój największy przebój pt. "Let Me Clear My Throat". Utwór, rozpoczynający się samplem z "Hollywood Swinging" zespołu Kool and the Gang, bazuje na fragmencie podkładu piosenki "The 900 Number" DJ Mark the 45 King, której to źródeł należy szukać we fragmencie "Unwind Yourself" Marva Whitney. Ostatnio DJ Kool pojawił się w dwóch utworach na płycie Willa Smitha "Lost and Found" z 2005 roku, oraz na "Liberation" Mya w 2008 roku w piosence "Ayo!". (pl)
