Hot Peas & Butta specialise in making movie soundtracks to movies that don’t exist. Sound familiar? Yep – it was them behind the Big Pimp Jones ‘soundtracks.’ But where BPJ’s Jimmy Ruckus & The 5 Fingers Of Death riffed off Blaxploitation and Kung Fu flicks, Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown riffs off vintage Japanese monster movies in general and Godzilla in particular. Like its predecessors, it’s a sampler’s paradise packed full of dope ass beats throughout which are dotted fake samples of dialogue “Radio up to headquarters to be prepared. It might be coming their way.” “Headquarters was destroyed five minutes ago.”
If you know anything about the Big Pimp Jones project you’ll know that the only thing missing was the movie itself. Mind you, with the HP&B ‘about’ page revealing that (having expanded from a club night into making music) the collective is now heading,”into the animation…realm as well,” even that might not be missing the next time we hear from them. Cop the free non-LP promo mix from Hot Peas & Butta dj supremo Skeme Richards from the soundcloud player below and check the full LP on the player below that. There’s also a limited 7” and cd package combo available – where the wax tracks are exclusive to the vinyl. More info at kodoja.com.
