A fat but complex double-bassline heralds the intro to Beattrix & Native Styles’ contribution to Vol. 4 of B-Line Recordings’ The B-Line EP Vol. 4 and then the drums kick in for emcees Reachwun and Strange Man Called Seb to lace with bars. Since two of the four skills are thus represented, perhaps a video representing the two remaining skills to provide the correct ambience? A nearly four-minute montage of b-boy showdowns interspersed with footage of the occasional urban space being creatively appropriated by people with marker pens and spraycans? That’ll do nicely. It’s all about that bassline though.
