|What gets us all to the "Low
Life's Main Courses: Food" (and also hungry).
A collection, compilation, collaboration, conceptualization
of everything Low Life stands for. And for those
that don't know what that is, then in short: the
best UK rap you're likely to get (besides all the
other great UK material that's out there). And the
list of artists on the fourteen tracks of this compilation
is illustrious, and a list of names you should add
to your rap repertoire: Braintax, Rodney P, Harry
Love, Jehst, Chester P, Task Force. Rings familiar
like the second week of tinitus? Nope? Well, that's
exactly what compilations (despite them being more
loathed than hairy armed females) are good for:
introducing you to folks. Many, many people.
|And we shall introduce you to a
couple of the best tasting servings here. With the
number one spot being hogged by the geezer Jehst
and his fabulous, wacky and erratic "Adventures
In New Bohemia". You should hear
that female when she gets completely to the high
notes. Lock away your stolen pint glasses, mate.
Speaking of the good drink, Jehst hails student
life and everyone with higher learning will relate.
And as we are smart folks around here, it'll be
everyone. So add this to your best of 2003 list
today. Moving on, there's "My
Type Of Party", a smooth little
ditty, that gets us moving without wrecking any
muscles. This part is bobbing and Mystro is just
laying out the perfect gathering to boogie, drink,
chat and be happy. Man, invite me to the next one.
|Not everything is as straight forward
and 'hi hi' as that. Nope, on "Tell
Them!" there's some remote double
timing, over a as jiggy as they can still be happy
with beat. The words by Mikey D.O.N. and Live 1
then also turn to the braggadocios, and the lowriders
bounce. With the whole style of this being repeated
by the mighty Task Force and Braintax. More representing
is on "Next Level Response"
by The Iguana Man, while Rodney P does that UK style
on the Braintax produced "Run That", that
waxfactor says can only be understood by UK people.
Although this compilation features only little of
those Caribbean riddims, instead there's a rough
by Jehst, Asaviour and Usmaan that shows that not
everything is daisies and carrots on the island.
|So there you have it. No conservatives,
no preservatives, no e-numbers. The cooks outdid
themselves. It's time for you to get yourself hip
to the UK kitchen. Get UK some sales, damn it. Especially
if it's the right stuff you purchase. And there's
nothing wrong about Low Life and this compilation.
