RAM SKANK: Superstylin’ (2012)

Sarf Londoner and sometime BigM artist Ram Skank returns in June on the splendidly named Pig Balls Records label with the eight-track Superstylin’. On this he continues his mission to bring back big beat – in a way that’ll keep the ghetto funk posse happy. Tempos range from about 100 to 130+ bpms and you get everything from club floor bangers to the more laid back affairs like – er – Laid Back. Best two cuts are the first two – mid-tempo squelchy-bassed opener All Night Skankin’ with its combination of big beat soul and reggae vocals and the guitar-y, Tosses & Varvez-featuring big beat roller Shake Your Boat. Check release track All Is Calm below and audio snippets of the whole release below that.
(Out 11 June on Pig Balls Records)
