"One for the big soundsystems. Super delicate melody with big deep drums."
Produced this one together with my UK homies and with great result.
Split Prophets beatmaker Badhabitz throws together some nice grungey chaos here but it's Phili's rhymes that keep your head strapped to this, lightspeed political critique long-overdue as the coalition continues its cruelty and lies. Only hip-hop would have the balls to create a track like this right now, great to hear some political thought and aggravation back in UK rap and as choruses go 'FUCK THE GOVERNMENT' is one I hope catches on in playgrounds nationwide. From the duo's self-titled debut LP out on Bandcamp now.
Crackazat’s music works for me because it never tries to hide what it wants to be. It’s purely an infectious blend of driving, layered, melody-rich dance music that in the case of ‘Somewhere Else’ sounds a little bit like a 4/4 version of that moment when Dorian Concept took off his shoe onstage and used it, along with his face, to play his microKORG to the braying hordes of punters at Sonar; hand grenades and all.
