As the third commercially released single drawn from their great third album "Next!" Germany's dancehall caballeros Seeed (who already released in collaboration with Pionear and his Germaican Records their 'Rodeo'-riddim to conquer the dancehalls) after "Aufstehn" and "Schwinger" THE dancehalltune of the album, their German lyrics take on the 'Rodeo' "Ding" has just been released. Heute bin ich ziemlich gut drauf, zieh mich schick an, setz'n Hut auf, die Rolex tickt, Mann, seh ich gut aus, hol mir den Kick, den ich absolut brauch ... great lyrics that culminate in the hookline Ohoho mein hübsches Ding, ich versteck mein Ehering. The tune has already gained (on February 9, one day prior to its release) maximum publicity in Germany, as it was the winning song representing Berlin in the by German entertainer Stefan Raab initiated second Bundesvision Song Contest for Germany's commercial TV-station ProSieben, in which last year Mamadee feat. Gentleman competed. Together with the French rap crew Saļan Supa Crew a great next version of their English version "Pretty Thing" of "Ding" is delivered, followed by the till now unreleased "Family Thing", a great horn driven roots tune (in the style of "On Top Of The City") with lyrics and production by Eased. The very fine animation video of "Ding" and a cool 8 minutes video of "Seeed live @ Wuhlheide" capturing their live magic close the third, and again must buy Maxi-CD taken from their "Next!" album.
