Song of the day – 520: Nitty Scott MC
I don’t want this music to ever stop.
This is underpinned with what sounds like a slap bass. Normally I don’t like it when musicians slap their bass – what the fuck harm did it ever do to you, dog? – but oddly I don’t mind it so much when the bass is a stand-up. This track is minimal and righteous and old school like the Beasties: a good time MC tune. The samples are sparse, the beats are fluid. Feels like a highly polished demo made while someone was checking out their mum’s record collection. What the fuck is wrong with that?
Slick, though.Slick, laconic and with a bit of that early Dream Warriors vibe.
Here’s another one.
