‘Down and Out’ is an uplifting jazzy number with a cheeky vibraphone sample and tuff, funky drums. Much lighter and brighter work than his current 70’s soundtrack stylings. A reasonably engaging if unspectacular mic presence, Danny offers up some helpful pointers for the Prozac massive feeling down on their luck. Despite coming over a tad self-righteous on the drink and drugs issue it’s all brought together with a catchy chorus that’s hard to shake off.
‘LP On The SP’ flips a more quirky sample than the straight up summer madness of the A side. This one sees Danny reflecting on the musical process, stressing the importance of Hip Hop homework and testifying to the skill and dedication of the SP1200 master. And I can’t argue with him. It’s good to see Lewis back on British soil and working with British rappers, it would be a shame to lose him to the US indefinitely. A promising start for this nascent label, fans of hard head nod Hip Hop would do well not to sleep on this one.
