[RATING: 5] Blimey, The Nextmen feat. Kiko Bun’s Big Time is so good I might have to forgive The Nextmen for they time they tried to house me in Bristol’s Lakota all the way back in 2014. It wasn’t a great gig – this on the other hand is a great track – and you can beat me til I’m blue if that’s a lie. Let’s see now, forge a phat boom-bap beat out of a super groovy slice of late 60s organ funk and then get reggae vocalist Kiko Bun to deliver a vocal over the top of that about how he, ‘screwed up big time.’ Well, he might have done at some point, but not on this he hasn’t. Big time? Absolutely huge!
