Riddim ripping was recently voted by readers of the Financial Times as one of the hardest professions in the UK. No biggie for the Beat Assassins, though - they've not only ripped up the riddim, they've torn it in to pieces so small you need a massive magnifying glass to see them. With their trademark electro boogie bounce in full effect, this rolls and rollicks with effortless charm. "Living Good" pumps with a more persistent 4/4 drive. With a well-placed hip-hop vocal sample and a thrilling, almost evangelistic build up, it'll make plenty of friends on that dancefloor of yours.
Two silverback slammers from the man like Jimmy Mofo on Ed Solo's burgeoning slammage stable Gorilla Warfare. If you've so much as spotted a Beat Assassins record from afar on a jungle safari you'll know how heavy these cuts are likely to be. "Bomba" cuts through the mix with a chainsaw reese that mutates into a cool trippy groan midway. Elsewhere the heads down bass grit and subtle orchestral elements of "Cockney Boys" are your quintessential 'knees up mother brown'. Except it's not knees it's gunfingers and it's not mother browns, it's mothercrushers. Assassination never felt so good.
