Fannypack is a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based quintet comprising producers Matt Goias and Fancy and B-girls/singers Jessibel, Belinda and Cat. With "So Stylistic," it has created a crazy, sexy and cool soundtrack, perfect for body rockin' on hot summer nights. Fannypack's music references such '80s club rhythms as electro, freestyle and Miami bass. Comparisons to acts like L'Trimm, J.J. Fad and Salt-N-Pepa are completely warranted. As the lead single, the very novel "Cameltoe" has become one of top 40 radio's quirkier hits of late; it has also become a favorite in disco-punk clubs. A tale of "frontal wedgies," "Cameltoe" perfectly captures the group's light-hearted spirit—we're not talking brain surgery here. Elsewhere, the girls rhyme "Biggie" with "P. Diddy" ("The Theme From Fannypack") and "plaid" with "sad" ("Things"). "Smack It Up" is a

rock-kissed, super-stylin' anthem
