More Info:

The Mohawks consisted of a group of session musicians assembled by the British composer Alan Hawkshaw. They released the song The Champ 50 years ago in 1968, successfully re-released in 1987. The songs itself is based on the Lowell Fulson soul blues classic Tramp. This Hammond infused dance groove went on to be one of THE essential Hip-Hop samples of all time, used by artist like: Nas, MC Hammer, De La Soul, Dj Shadow and Mobb Deep. The Champ is used as a sample in over 600 songs. This record store day release also includes the ska songs “Sound of The Witch Doctors”. Both songs were recorded for the 1968 album The Champ.

Alan Hawkshaw is known for his work as a composer for movies and television programs. He was rewarded a doctorate in 2016, giving him the title of Doctor for his contributions to the music. With the studio group Love De-Luxe he scored a number 1 single hit in the USA in 1979.
