Bamboo was a short-lived British house production act formed by producer Andrew Livingstone, formerly of Hed Boys (with Dave Lee/Joey Negro). It had a #2 hit in the UK Singles Chart with "Bamboogie" in 1998,[1] which was based on a sample from the KC and the Sunshine Band song "Get Down Tonight". The act's other hit single, also in 1998, was "The Strutt", which peaked at #36 and featured Erin Lordan on vocals.[2] Both singles were released on the VC Recordings label,[3] a subsidiary label of Virgin Records. Livingstone also co-produced Take That's cover version of the classic hit Relight My Fire in 1993 along with Lee.
