MASS DEBATE
Shun CD, 2011

Funky hiphop with large beats, fat basslines and an Aussie female MC/singer. The production is clear and thumpin’. The lyrics are all questioning governmental politics, racism and sexual politics. The more overtly sexual lyrics remind me of Lady Sovereign and Princess Superstar. The songs are sharp, snappy, quick in and out. I haven’t heard a combination of political energy and pop music this smooth since Chumbawamba. Catchy pop rap that probably sounds great on the radio. Beats and production by Skot, Ernie and Meagan D, who also did the rhymes. Consolidated, remember them? “if you fuck up, just sit on your hands,” nice hook.
