CRASHGROOVE: Apollo EP (2013)

Here’s Crashgroove everybody – latest signing to Bulabeats and not to be confused with seminal hip-hop movie Krush Groove. As if you’d make that mistake with this lot of noisy shenanigans. The Apollo EP contains three tracks – the relative merits of which can, I believe, be conveyed by three different types of Apollo. In reverse order then: the snarling, ear-punishing, breakz-fest of closer Apollo is all a bit Apollo 13, middle number (and bass wobble tribute to the movie Beat Street) Street Beat is rather more Apollo Creed while the heavyweight glitchy hip-hop-sampling opener Rip Hop is mighty sun-god Apollo. As the Delphic oracle would undoubtedly have confirmed. Shortly before chanting, “This is how I do when I’m reppin hip-hop.”
Out 1 Feb on Bulabeats
