Neil McMillan and Andrew Divine of Hi Karate have been fighting over records for the past three years now and their break beat funk night at Glasgow's Art School has just had its first birthday. These are their four top tunes at the moment, and we hope the scars have healed.
Organic Audio: ‘Kumquat Shot' ’ (Tummy Touch)
’Likely to be the biggest record on Tummy Touch thus far. Phat Brazilian drums, geetars ~~ sub bass fantastic.’
Lyn Collins: 'Think' (People 7‘) 'UItra-heavy James Brown funk sampled to death (see 'lt Take Two' em, but the original still kicks.’
Jurassic 5: ‘Concrete Schoolyard EP' (Pan)
'With a kazoo added to the album version of 'COncrete Schoolyard’ and a bunch of fresh instrumentals, hip hop's brighteSI hopes continue to excnte purists and dancefloors alike.’
wig/z . I ,1" a . 'Grandmaster Flash: 'Adventures On The Wheels of Steel' (Sugarhill) ‘Traditional Hi Karate closer which always unites the disco kids, the hip hop lovers and the Queen fans.’
