Mike L - On A Columbo Tip - out on First word Records

Mike-L On a Columbo Tip
Mike L - On A Columbo Tip
(CD/LP/Download) First Word Records FW36, 2010-10-25

First Word are proud to present the debut album from Mike-L, the fantastic On A Columbo Tip. Following on from other First Word releases this year, Mike has crafted an album that shares the dusty-fingered, crate-digging sound of Herma Puma with the unashamedly retro style of The Simonsound's Reverse Engineering. Mike's been with First Word since day one, winning over fans with his dusty-grooved hip hop and funk production. Eye Of The Storm was one of the first 12's the label released back in 2005, and was a defining release for First Word. A veteran of six DMC finals Mike has managed the seemingly rare feat of combining jaw-dropping turntablist skills with genuine beat-making talent, crafting a 15-track opus that takes in Madlib-style Hip Hop, Cut Chemist-influenced breakbeat funk and the eerie soundscapes of RJD2.
