Single Review


Finally getting a full release after knocking around on the underground for half a year now, this is the former Pay As You Go MCs official entry into the brave new world of UK Funky, and while he may have pissed off Lil Silva by riding one of his beats unbidden, and while the lyrics are bollocks nonsense about phones most hoodrats had 5 years ago, this definitely works. After the skank craze of 2009 vocal funky is here to stay and a splash of personality on a genre that skates the big bottomless rink of deep house is a breathe of fresh air. It’s not big or clever but it bangs in the club, and if what the kids think counts for anything I had 15 teenagers request it this week alone.
