The unintentionally hilarious comment below from a neo-nazi has reminded me that I haven’t mentioned this essential new release from Soul Jazz.
If you’ve been following this blog and the mixes I’ve done for the last few years, you’ll know that I think the history of UK MC culture has been massively under-exposed – this is fantastic start to redressing that error.
Full review to follow in the next issue of The Wire, but do yourself and favour and grab your copy now – you won’t regret it. If there is a release more important than this in 2008 I will be very surprised.
The album also functions as a beautiful antidote to the socially constructed concept of “whiteness” that my correspondent seems so keen on.
