MAKO & THE HAWK: Spacing Rasco – Free Download

(PRESS RELEASE) Is it a mash-up or is it a remix? Are these really two distinct concepts anyway? Mako and The Hawk couldn’t give a monkey’s!

Despite this, the Hawk persists with the flimsy argument that Mako’s suggestion to, ‘put in some extra kick drums’ constitutes a significant contribution to the production process. Whatever the truth, this unholy marriage of Public Enemy and The Ting Tings will have so many hands in the air in the coming months that it should boost deodorant sales exponentially, with knock-on economic effects that might ultimately lift the UK from the current recession. Hurrah!
