B.A.D.A.S.S. is exactly what you'd expect… badass! Instantly reminiscent of DJ Vadim's T.E.R.R.O.R-IST, it's not long until you're immersed into the dark side of Mr. Cannon's force. At 140 bpm, drums as crisp as you like and with a bass line sicker than your average, [Mr. Popper Twist cabbage, wait!? wrong song…] Deadline's very much as snug as a bug in a 'dutty' club – his heavy, grimy and catchy flow will get any sweaty club-fiend reaching for his lighter. Not a collaboration to be reckoned with, Deadline + Cannon = BIG-BADDA-BOOM!
Make sure to check out the B Side for some prime skanking goodness with 'This Is…' featuring the notorious UK hip-hop / reggae MC, Serocee (Basement Jaxx, MJ Cole, Toddla T) and UK legend Yogi (Ty, Klashnekoff, Rukus). Once again, Cannon showcases his incomparable talent while Deadline and co. dominate a verse each making for a very strong release indeed.
