Press Release :
Fresh from a tour supporting the legendary DJ Shadow with his band Stateless, kidkanevil is back with another razor-sharp 12" to splice up the dancefloor. Yes, our perma-beanied beat technician's called in the big guns on MC duties in the form of Quannum's Lateef The Truthspeaker, Yarah Bravo & UK heavyweight Lotek (Roots Manuva)..

First up, Lateef takes things into '5th Gear' with a tale of a hot night's dancefloor liasons, backed by One Self's Little Miss B. This low-slung groover is guaranteed to get the bootys shakin' as the killer flute slices through the tribal rhythm, as hypnotic as the Truthspeaker's conquest. This tune's got back!

As if that wasn't enough, we've got 'ASBO', a super-fl y track laden with bass as heavy as the wit Lotek spits on the flow ("He thinks algebra is a terrorist cell"). This is social commentary that'll slap a grin right across your noddin' noggin. The 12" is fi nished off with a remix of kidk's awesome debut single 'Kranium Rock' by the man like Diesler. Tru Thoughts' bespectacled wonderkid sprinkles some summer funk into the mix to give Testament's on-point flow a fresh perspective.
