Speech Defect - Killin' Da Wack Shit
(limited edition japan only 12") No Cool Music/Handcuts Japan NCM010, 2006-10-16

Review :
In the vein of Ugly Duckling or People Under The Stairs class of new old school sunshine party hip hop comes Speech Defect, a trio of MCs (Mr Linus, Thage and Boogie B) and a DJ (DJ Prao-D) from Sweden. Their new album is out on Hancuts Records in Japan and they're looking for a distribution deal in Europe. I got my hands on his new 12 inch, a limited thing for Japan only, with two new tracks, instrumentals and a remix. The opener "Superfuture" is supposed to be the red hot hip hop/funk hybrid tearing the roof off, according to the few press reviews available, but in my humble opinion "Hang Up's feat. Abdominal" is the shit here. Starting with a slowed-down Marlena Shaw sample, the same one St Germain used repeadtly on his "Rose Rouge" track, "Hang Up's" is a driving funk'n'breakbeats piece... but it's remixed version is even better! Adding heavy-soul energy horn riffs to the original it's taking it into stepping hit-single territory, close to some of the best Beck mashed-up singles. One of the best hip hop things I've heard recently, it comes from Sweden and is only distributed in Japan. Be aware.

Tracklisting :
A1. Superfuture
A2. Hang Up's (feat. Abdominal)
A3. Superfuture (inst.)
B1. Hang up's Remix (feat. Abdominal)
B2. Hang up's (inst.)
B3. Hang up's Remix (inst.)

Info :
Speech Defect is and interesting crew out of Sweden who's sound is very much influenced by rare Funk grooves and B-Boy rhyme styles. If I had to compare them to somone, I'd say they rank up there with groups like Ugly Duckling, P.U.T.S, and Jurassic 5. This latest release, on No Cool Music/Handcuts delivers that signature formula along with a worthy guest appearance by MC Abdominal. Very nice stuff. Check em out. (from Vinyl Athletes blog)
