It’s been a while since MB has featured any stuff by Tensei (a.k.a. Simple X formerly of Herma Puma) but his Hotbox Sessions Vol. 2 is out at the minute and it’s not to be sniffed at. All expectations to the contrary, there’s nothing whatsoever x-rated about it – the name is a reference to the sweatbox of a studio in which these 6 slabs of hip-hop boom were created and from which they went on to be used by such luminaries of the mic as Pugz Atomz, Primeridian, Philip Morris and ADAD. Players below.
