Yes yes y'all!
October 10th 2011 sees the eagerly anticipated return of the UK's all-star producer Mark B (Mark B & Blade – The Unknown album) (Tommy Evans - Move..Now) (Delta - The Lostralian album) with this brand new hard-hitting single Fresh, Wild, Fly & Bold; a tribute to old-skool Hip-Hop pioneers The Cold Crush Brothers.
Mark teams up with Dialect (Dialect & Despair - The Vortex album) to bring it back to absolute basics with gritty-funky samples, hard crunching Emu SP1200 drum machine beats, menacing flutes, & most importantly three of Hip-Hop's key elements; knowledge, lyricism, & scratching.
Dialect pays an over-due respect to the Boogie-Down Bronx's eminent pioneers The Cold Crush Brothers (Grandmaster Caz, DJ Tony Tone, DJ Charlie Chase, Easy A.D, Almighty Kay Gee, J.D.L & Money Ray R.I.P) for those unaware Grandmaster Caz is widely acknowledged (yet unaccredited) for writing Rap's first single, The Sugarhill Gang - Rappers Delight.
To coincide with the release Mark B & Dialect also launch their brand new website FreshWildFlyAndBold.com
; A 3rd eye account to the birth & passion of greatness. A site solely dedicated to preserving Hip-Hop culture through the means of interviews, stories & knowledge of its pioneers. Altogether making this one complete package not to be missed.
