Riding home from the Shambhala Music Festival a few years ago, Dash from the Root Sellers came up with the concept for this track – calling upon the audience to put in their earplugs so we can all keep hearing the music. When we got home, we recorded the track and debuted it at the opening of Shambhala 2012. It’s been a staple in my set ever since and will probably continue to get dropped for years to come.
Big shouts to Captain Planet for letting us take his original beat and shift it into the piece you hear now.

“Sir Timothy Wisdom cocks his hat to it’s jauntiest of angles, meets you in the centre of the ring and challenges you to ‘put em up’. Three minutes later you’re begging your trainer to cut your eye and are wailing for Adrian! “Mama Said’.”

A year in the making, here’s the next instalment of the “Back to the Bass Kicks” series – featuring loads of my original tunes, remixes and tracks I’ve worked on with producer friends from around the globe. It starts with the Hip-Hop style of funk, heads into banger-ville and then ends back with the Funk. Huge thanks to everyone I’ve worked with, all the fans who’ve come out to shows and all the promoters who’ve had me come to perform at their events. We’re keeping the Funk alive!

* A MiniBomb is a a concept I’ve been playing with for the last year. Each MiniBomb is in the same key and tempo and is very short (i.e. not a complete song, just a build-up and drop). They’re useful for making interesting DJ mixes where you simply alter the order of bombs to make new remixes. I’ve been working in the 6A key but I’d like to have MiniBombs for every key eventually. If you like this idea and want to get involved in building a MiniBomb library, get in touch. When we get enough, we can release a library of tiny tunes.
