Why should you buy Elbow Grease? Well it kicks off with a collaboration surely every UK Hip Hop head wanted to hear – SonnyJim and Foregin Beggars on the big and bouncy Out To Getcha anybody? Percy Filth doesn’t let up in quality of production or guest calibre – next up it’s about-to-return Juice Aleem, Madflow and Lotek on Electronic Music which somehow manages to use digital sounds on a track reminiscent of the 90s era.
It’s not just UK MCs and DJs who have been invited on board – Livin’ Trife features Maylay Sparks, K-Skills, That’s Why (Remix) features K-Skills and J-Sands and Flesh n Blood features (the probably quite eccentric) Arsun F!st.
Over the remaining four tracks SonnyJim, Redbeard, English, Stig of the Dump, Dr. Syntax and Kosyne ensure that there is not a bad track on this EP. The wealth of DJs on this release take care of the very welcome cuts – props to DJ Cro, DJ Weetamix, DJ Roc-1 and DJ Jodo. Percy Filth has got the skills to pay the bills, your head won’t stop nodding for the duration and the skip button will be underused, so make sure you pick up a copy so that he actually can pay for gas and that.
Elbow Grease is out on Aerosolik / Eat Good and is available now from Suspect Packages.
