The latest up to get down is my 1st LP, ‘Rap Traffic’ recorded round at Req’s house in Brighton a decade ago. Here’s what the critics said about our endeavours back in the Y2K+1…

 

“Admirably Warped” – Jockey Slut 

 

“A distinctly British take on B-Boydom. Flawed comic genius” – Seven 

 

“Goddamn. This is 100% of that hip-hop shit. Go play in the traffic” – ATM

 

“Lo-fi raw genius with real ’83 venom. Keep an eye on these clowns” – DJ

 

“Sounds like a 15th generation dub from the T-Connection circa 1981 with some killer trashcan percussion à la 23 Skidoo” – Wire 

 

“The freshest, most unpretentiuos, lo-fi, graf-writers-getting-it-right-by-getting-it-wrong music odyssey you will hear until his next release. Get” – Muzik 

 

“Something to be commended in an age of dollar bills and fur coats. This is one to watch”

– Record Collector

 

“Slugtrails on the wax, drizzle on the jeepster and tea in the pot while the two beat-boys downgrade fidelity. Fresh” – Bizarre Magazine 

 

“Deep, surrealist Brit-Hop. Check the rhymes and see if you can work out what the f*ck the Kid is on about” – Mix Mag

 

“Rougher than a crocodile’s nad sack. Inventiveness to the fore and well worth tracking down”– Ministry 

 

“Truly creative. Grab yo’self a ladle. Shit is piping hot” – Knowledge
