ROY PORTER SOUND MACHINE feat. DED TO THE WORLD: Generation (Vinyl 7″)

ROY PORTER SOUND MACHINE feat. DED TO THE WORLD: Generation (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ If you like your boom-bap jazzy and uptempo, Number Nine Records have lined-up an absolute treat for you with this first-time-on-45 release for Generation, Roy Porter’s 1994 collabo with L.A. hip-hop outfit Ded To The World. Powered by the funky drums of legendary sticksman Porter, a jazzy beat featuring double bass, Rhodes, horns and wah-wah provides the backdrop for rappers Khalif and Boots to honour their musical forebears. Definitely one to file alongside early Pharcyde and Freestyle Fellowship, ┬áit’ll have them tearing up the dancefloor and you’ll wish this little-known Hieroglyphics-affiliated crew had made good on early promise and released an album.
(Out 8 November on Number Nine Records)
