I could write this review with one line: Silvar - not for fans of Hip Hop. I won't just leave it at that though; you need to know why. If I'm not mistaken 'Searching' is produced by Sermstyle who can produce decent Hip Hop beats. Instead for this release someone decided that synthy-dance-mulch based beats would do. It's obvious this is aimed at folk who listen to the radio and go to see X Factor winners in concert but I doubt this will even cut it with them - it's a bit too mundane.
I've been a fan of Mr. Scruff for as long as I can remember (a lie, but for as long as I've been really getting into music) and it was this album that started it all off. It's 10 years old now (hence the 10th Anniversary re-release) and it still sounds as good as it used to.
DJ Juice's production grooves along (in the way a modified premo joint might) as Danny Spice cruises vocally on his latest track Money. Mr. Spice tells us in no uncertain terms ("You see me, ain't up in the game to be cool/ Or have MTV round to look at my pool/ I rap to because I have to") what he deems to be the state of realness in Hip Hop.
Breakdancing is considered as one of the significant elements that make up hip hop culture. Also known as breaking, b-boying, or b-girling, this street dance was developed in the 1970s among the African-American and Hispanic youths of South Bronx, New York.
