Ultramagnetic MCs – Travelling at the Speed of Thought

Despite being 25-years-old, this still sounds remarkably fresh and fun. It’s cleanliness and simplicity – and relative innocence – is underscored by a great sample of The Kingsmen’s Louie Louie (which may or may not have been a deliberate homage to that kind of classic primitivism). It’s the drums that make it so wonderful: a straightforward, incessant thud, with minor embellishments, that was the staple of so much great hip hop in those days. It bangs away at you, reminding you that banging away is the essence of the best rock ‘n’ roll.
