Tha Liks, or Tha Alkaholiks, who blisteringly expose the world a particular heady reign of dynamic, energetic, and sublimely rhythmic form of hip hop. Resoundingly unapologetic, braze and confessional but most importantly authentic. Described by NME as "West Coast funk above all, a daredevil strand of hip-hop that celebrates the smoggy heat-hazes of Los Angeles and many forms of ignorant behaviour. J-Ro, E-Swift and Tash are obviously intelligent – it takes twisted and cerebral minds to concentrate so much on drunkenness without getting boring – but they’re out to have a good time, and leave any preaching or social comment on a subliminal level."
Ethix, a UK act that would win the world over critically and popularly, to rival American Hip Hop. However, all of this based on integrity and artistic driven sense of drive, Ethix also injected in to his work a wild and wicked humour, "Uptempo, fun loving hip-hop with hilarious lyrics."
The Gipsy Kings, an astonishing and musically versatile band who are however founded on a real, compassionate, authentic devotion to their roots. Bringing the deep, mystical, intelligent and wonder evoking culture of the gypsy tribes to their music, their sound is a delicious evocation which sparkled with charismatic charm and light.
The vinyls of the Gips Kings and Tha Liks are sound, clean and free of scratches. The vinyl of Ethix leaves some to be desired, their are marks and dust. Boxes are all fine.
