Following their debut album "We Are To Answer", production duo Ancient Astronauts look like their getting even hotter if this new EP is anything to go by. Lead single "Put Em Up" is something that true-school hip-hop heads will go crazy for, thanks to the superior rhymes of rapper Raashan Ahmad and some phat and punchy live drums.
As Ahmad says "ain't nothing like hip-hop music" - fans of any classic 90s rap from The Pharcyde to Jurassic 5 would definitely get a buzz from "Put Em Up". The EP also sees some exclusive and rather ace remixes of "We Are To Answer" tracks as well. Tru Thoughts legend TM Juke takes "Everybody" and rolls it into a tasty funk and electro fusion with some expertly produced drums kicking throughout. Protassov takes the vocals supplied by the Phat Old Mamas on "A Hole To Swallow Us" and provides a fun piano-led downtempo mix, similar in spirit to the early Gorillaz releases. Lance Herbstrong and Gianma both give I Came Running their own unique stamp while BBC radio's DJ Pathaan rewires Lost In Marrakesh into a smooth and sharp drum and bass rhythm.See also:
