From beyond the stars comes the mysterious John Bigbooty, an interstellar super-group prone to dusty vacuum tube beats and distorted hyper-melodies blasted out of hi-fidelity megaphone speakers. Delicious breakbeat buffoonery mingles with hip-hop sample catching in four outrageous studio productions bound to start a dancefloor pogo riot.
The epic “Doin’ Your Duty For The Booty” is not only the theme song of the project, but also a stand-out downtempo track that shakes and shimmies through a dark series of aural alleyways. “A Second Hand” sounds like an old school breakdance showdown overrun by a rusty steel drum ensemble. Meanwhile, “Sonny Days” repeats the Bigbooty slogan (“Music is our business!”) while slugging the listener with some fast paced gnarly breakbeat action.
John Bigbooty is rumored to be a one-off collaboration between Eighth Dimension stalwarts Q-Burns Abstract Message and DJ BMF arising from a presumed-forgotten session of beer drinking and beat making. It’s been unearthed and repackaged for widespread release and is a sure-fire winner for fans of labels like Wall Of Sound, NinjaTune, and Bastard Jazz. Lap it up.
