JAZZ SPASTIKS: Move (feat. APANI B-FLY)/ Frequency (feat. MOKA ONLY) (2014)

Move Frequency Jazz SpastikzAccording to the PR, Jazz Spastiks are, “a highly gifted production duo residing in Edinburgh, Scotland. Blending their love of Jazz with Hip Hop, they make nothing but pure head-nodding, neck-snapping beats.” Which is true. But is there scope (see what I did there?) for lyrical enhancement? As it turns out there is. First up is a veteran emcee known for her Native Tongues-ish ’96 single Estragen, Apani B-Fly, who (90s rap fans will be pleased to hear) still be fly in 2014 on Move. On the flip (for this is limited vinyl!) is a veteran Canadian emcee, Moka Only, who was previously a member of – er – Swollen Members and who appears on the slightly faster Frequency – both of which tracks rock a stoned Native Tongues vibe a la early Blackalicious. Sounds good to me…
(Out 23 June on Dusty Platter)
