The Body Snatchers

The Body Snatchers AKA highly respected underground production duo 30Hz and Baobinga drop their debut long player ‘Feeling Good, Looking Nice, Smelling Right’ as their bling-tastic, spaced-up, crunk-enducing alter ego and it’s been long worth the wait.

Having been tearing holes in sound systems since teaming up to release their debut single ‘Rip Shit Up’ (a firm favourite with Pendulum in their DJ sets) the duo have gone onto remix the likes of Ferry Corsten, Krafty Kuts and most recently Noisia for Skint Records. Heavily inspired by America’s southern Rap scene alongside the high energy bounce of the Bay Area’s ‘Hyphy’ scene The Body Snatchers have twisted these sounds together with a large UK injection of b’line manipulation and balls to the wall distortion, the result – pummelling party music to make your ass shake and your ear bones quake.

So who the hell are The Body Snatchers?

Well, Baobinga (Sam to his mum) was recently named ‘Player Of The Year’ in IDJ magazine probably because he is one of the most versatile producers and DJs operating in the dance music field today. Whether in partnership with I.D. as Big Monster for Fat! creating new ragga hybrids with Tayo for Soul Jazz or producing solo on labels like Mantra, a steady stream of releases have caught the attention of some of the top names in dance music and his latest pairing with 30Hz shows that this Manchester-based powerhouse has no sign of slowing down!

Hailing from Washington, DC in the U.S of A and now a resident of Bristol, 30Hz is one busy man. Signed (individually) to Meat Katie’s Lot49 imprint and releasing his critically acclaimed debut solo long player ‘Electric Sheep’ at the tail end of 2007, James or ‘Ginz’ as he’s known to family and friends also runs two labels: Vertical Sound for his Nu-Skool Breaks outputs and Tectonic – one of the world’s leading Dubstep labels. Working alongside Planet Mu’s DJ Pinch as ‘P.Dutty’ the duo were responsible for the bass-led Dubstep anthem ‘War Dub’ which was snapped up by Universal Pictures and used on their box office hit ‘Children Of Men’, oh he recently received nominations for Best Single & Album at this years Breakspoll Awards, this is one man on a mission!

The Body Snatchers >>> Following two massive singles that have ruptured the splean of club land ‘Big Ass Miniskirt’ and ‘Freaky Ho b/w Twist Up’ and with a third vocal-led monster about to drop ‘Call Me’ featuring Lil’ Jon’s latest signing the super hype Sporty-O alongside sublime UK vocalist Yolanda (Bugz In The Attic/Massive Attack) this will be the last in a 12” trilogy before the release of the debut artist album ‘Feeling Good, Looking Nice, Smelling Right’, an album that is set to flip the script on UK Urban sounds infused with serious electronic sensibilities.

Featuring a whole host of MCs, mixed up with skits a club-based album this aint. Think Urban style music with the production standards of two geniuses, two mad professors who’ve been locked in the studio formulating a super hype hybrid sound – here’s a breakdown of who’s on the album:

Sporty-O – Hailing from Altanta, Georgia, Sporty-O is definitely one of the hottest new US rappers out there. Having just signed a deal with Lil Jon’s label BME Click to release his forthcoming album he is set to blow up on a global scale, having previously worked with DJ Lethal from House Of Pain and Limp Biskit, Sporty-O is causing big ripples across the pond.

Mr Smith – Grew up as an army brat, travelling with his parents who were stationed across America and Germany. Originally a native of Indiana, Mr. Smith relocated to Tampa, Florida where he linked up with local legend Acafool. Expect material later in 2008 from both Mr.Smith and Acafool on Passenger.

Goldmouf – Another Altanta MC making waves on the underground, Goldmouf’s mix tape series ‘Goldmouf: Street Idols Vols 1 – 5’ have seen some real heat drawn to this young player. With his debut artist album ‘The Best Thing On Myspace’ about to drop, Goldmouf is one hot new talent. He is also known to appear in the occasional movie!!!

Kamikaze – New Jersey native based in Bristol, Kamikaze has racked up performances at renowned NYC venues such as Tramps and the NuYorican Poets Café as well as performing alongside the likes of Grandmaster Flash, People Under The Stairs, Skinnyman, Smith & Mighty, Peewee Ellis (James Brown’s saxophonist) and Maceo Parker. He also performs live with fully live (i.e. no DJ) hip-hop band ‘Rawness’ currently attracting a lot of attention.

Sirplus – Legendary Bristol-based MC has supported some of the biggest names in Hip Hop including Mobb Deep, Wiley, Sway, Inspektah Deck as well as France’s Saian Supa Crew. Plus can often be found recording in Roni Size’s studio and appears on a track with Full Cycle Dynamite MC and DJ Die.

Yolanda – Bristol born and bred Yolanda is steadily building a reputation as one of dance music’s most in demand vocalists appearing on tracks with Chase & Status, Bugz In The Attic, Freq Nasty, Domu, Deekline and Krafty Kuts she is currently working with Massive Attack on their forthcoming album.

Fern Lee – Appeared on the groundbreaking Outkast album ‘Stankonia’

Frilla – more Bristol-based talent from a producer who started making beats on his Playstation 2, since then he has been developing himself as a top-level vocalist resulting in high profile support gigs for the likes of Kano, Wayne Marshall, Styles P and Lethal Bizzle. He recently competed in the Vauxhall Tribes Urban Music Competition which featured Dizzie Rascal on the judges panel, Frilla won ‘Best MC’ and supported Dizzie on his ‘Maths & English’ UK tour.

Featuring ten brand new tracks alongside previous singles and skits ‘Feeling Good, Looking Nice, Smelling Right’ is set to put the bizzounce back into the bizzangin as these two highly talented artists get ready to drop a veritable bomb from a very big height!

Clearly a duo never to rest on their laurels as well as the music The Body Snatchers decided that simply releasing music was not enough and have created a trilogy of music videos to accompany the three singles taken from this album. Approaching (and convincing!) The Arts Council to give them funding to produce a three animated shorts showcasing the intergalactic adventures of their cartoon alter egos cannot be bad in any books! (check the weblinks below!) This design will feature throughout their album / website and myspace!

Official album launch party
– Fri June 6th, Passenger Records Boat Party and Official Album Launch Party for The Body Snatchers Album! Venue: Golden Jubilee, 8pm – 1am – more info www.aquasky.co.uk/shop

Apologies for the downtime today

Posted in news at May 27th, 2008 / No Comments »

Our web host has been experiencing some problems over the past 24 hours and this has meant that the site has been acting quite strangely. Thanks to the efforts of http://www.hosting-unlimited.net/ support staff we are back in business.

However, it has reminded me to make a full back-up of everything just in case we don’t back from the dead at some point in the future….


Gatecrasher

A man, thought to be from Northampton, has been dead in a tent at the Gatecrasher festival near Brackley.

The festival is taking place this weekend at Turweston Aerodrome.

UK Tek 2008 in Manchester

Posted in news at May 26th, 2008 / No Comments »

Every year the UK Tek converges on a remote spot in the UK to put on the underground (illegal) equivalent of Creamfields. Ravers are invited via a mixture of text messages and word of mouth powered by internet forums. The last big one was held in Davidstow, Cornwall and was in 2006. The organisers held it on the same weekend as “Run to the Sun” and this enabled revellers to blend in with all of the people headed to Newquay on the same weekend. Over 5000 people turned up and it went on for 3 days, police were powerless to stop it due to the sheer magnitdue of it, understandably since then Police have been keen to crack down on any subsequent parties.

UK Tek 2008 was held in a remote (very dusty) quarry near Manchester and by all accounts it was a disaster, with Police busting it very early on and not very many rigs turning up in any case. There have also been reports of heavy handedness from the Police, but what do you expect when 100 police arrive on horseback and riot shields? Getting the fuck out of there has to be your #1 priority.

There are lots of raves taking place every weekend and the organisers are usualy dilligent when it comes to cleaning up and leaving as few traces as possible, after all, who is really bothered about 100 or so people converging in a remote location miles away from anyone. Clearly the government are bothered and this is why they spend so much of our tax money on investigating music forums and undercover activity designed to stop parties.

No one is making any money out of them, there are no big brands involved and no tax being paid. These public gatherings are important and the people that put them on are doing it for the love of parties and what harm are they really doing?

2006 UK Tek News Report

Footage from this years Tek in Manchester

Here is an old news report on raves from the Police’s perspective

Here is a link to Phatmedia where you can watch footage of raves from the early 90s.

Taken from a 1988 TV news clip which follows a group of young ravers meeting up for a mystery warehouse party. A few clips outside of coach convoys and some acid dancing inside the warehouse.


Whilst idly channel surfing the other night, we stumbled across BBC3’s Eurovision semi final show and caught the start of the Bulgarian entry. We were quite surprised to see it was a breakbeat track! The dudes with the CDJs built into their guitars and flaming decks caught our eye, the circa 2005 tearout breaks brought a smile to our faces….. worth a giggle.

It almost sounds like something “The Breakfasterz” would have done….. 😉

Finally, we have 30Hz set ready for you to enjoy. The whole thing was recorded live and direct by Ollie 303 from http://www.southwestunderground.net

Head over to the music page and click the link to grab it. There is no track listing, as most of the tracks are not out yet!!

Thanks to 30Hz for making it possible.

Watch out for more live sets from Tom Real, High Eight vs That Girl Dj and Poface-Killa in the coming weeks…..
