One of the gigs I missed which I regretted muchly of late was Prince Kong at the !Kaboogie Squidge EP launch a couple of weeks back (Also missed The Alphabet Set one for my sins). The whole stonking, rumbling set is up at !Kaboogie now and features over an hour of the best future dub, bass and ragga coming out of Ireland (and most other places) at the moment.
The durrty-skankin’ set has MC Rodrigo of Super Extra Bonus Party and MC Lady Grew from London, who I know little about but has bags of attitude. Seriously, this is heavy. Rod comes in about the 15 minute mark and Lady Grew pops up at the 26 minute mark.
PCP has some great photos of the launch (as the one above) and a couple of exclusive Prince Kong tracks. Kong’s album Proper Horror Show will be released this month and is expected to feature Jah Balance, Warrior Queen, Rodrigo and Lady Grew. The Well Sick EP is also coming on !Kaboogie records.
From the demo I heard a few months back, it’s going to be turning a lot of heads in the UK and Europe – I’m looking at you Mary Anne Hobbs.
