Product Description

Product Description

Stereo Typical is the debut album from Brighton rap duo Rizzle Kicks, AKA BRIT School graduates Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens and Harley "Sylvester" Alexander-Sule. The album mixes rap and pop and includes the single "Down With the Trumpets", as well as the Fatboy Slim-produced "Mama Do the Hump".

BBC Review

It’s been a fantastic year for Rizzle Kicks, aka fresh-faced Brighton duo Jordan Stephens (19 years old) and Harley Alexander-Sule (20 next month), ex-students of the BRIT School. Unknown to the public as recently as May 2011, the pair’s debut single Prophet (Better Watch It) caused enough of a stir online for its follow-up, Down With the Trumpets, to climb into the UK top 10 in June. And two months later they went all the way to number one, as guests on Olly Murs’ Heart Skips a Beat. Stereo Typical therefore carries the weight of no little expectation on its shoulders – but it does so with an appealing spring in its step, as well as a cautious swagger, and with plenty of good-natured humour that reaches beyond their predominantly young audience.

Given its makers’ ages it’s no surprise that Stereo Typical’s lyrical content is largely rooted in the social calendar of inbetweeners – too young to go here, too old to be seen there. When I Was a Youngster talks of losing enthusiasm for being a fireman as soon as cider could be acquired – it adds, "these days you can catch me sitting on a bench in the park with a lager and crisps" – atop skittering percussion and enjoyable brass. Dreamers explores a more innocent time in our protagonists’ lives – "I’m gonna take myself to the moon and back in my dreams" – which is still incredibly fresh in the memory; and Miss Cigarette makes a beginners-level parallel between nicotine addiction and one’s lust for a particular girl. But with a refreshingly laidback approach to production, recalling both D.A.I.S.Y. age hip hop and the ska-meets-soul-meets-pop mix that accompanied the first Lily Allen LP, at no point do clichéd couplets become a problem. As the pair’s worldview expands, they’ll introduce more impressive imagery into their rhymes – which, it must be said, are tight enough right now.

At 14 tracks Stereo Typical is a couple of filler cuts too full of itself – Demolition Man could certainly have been lopped from the final product without affecting its first impressions, and the Fatboy Slim-produced Mama Do the Hump doesn’t really fit with the more relaxed feel of what surrounds it. But Rizzle Kicks’ debut, by bypassing the commonplace put-downs of peers and proffering a very British take on pop-flavoured rap, is an accomplished and infectious introduction to some rightly rising talents. --Mike Diver

5.0 out of 5 stars Who are these guys? You'll know soon enough... 1 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
The question is, who are they? Jordan "Rizzle" Stephens and Harley "Sylvester" Alexander-Sule are just 19 and 20 years old respectively, just a couple of teens who decided in the last year or so to start creating their own fresh style of hip-hop after meeting at Blatchington Mill school in Brighton, UK, collaborating on a few songs and then finally, with help from a friend, made some music videos on their YouTube channel that showcased their strengths with no real weaknesses.

They've only really "officially" released two songs, but they've got a ton more online and recently put together a number one duet with X-Factor runner-up Olly Murs in August 2011, but their inaugural album definitely tells the world they've got the knack for not just being confined to a "collaborator" any longer.

14 songs, totaling just about 50 minutes:

1. Dreamers - they know what they want, and that's total domination. First England, then the world. They come out swinging, and they definitely score big by showing they will not being denied their chance to show everyone they're the real deal. They rap about how about they're ready to take off, and don't step on their Nike trainers! It's only a dream away, according to this opener.

2. When I Was A Youngster - they're young, they're letting you know who they are and what they wanted when they were kids, and these guys really know how to have fun with their music, mixing some reggae in the background with fresh modern beats, and this one song puts a couple of older more established rappers to shame with their actual joy of creating their music.

3. Round Up - they're mixing accordions with hip-hop beats and they make it work, but with an edge worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars De la soul via Aspects 19 Feb 2012
Format:MP3 Download
I am old enough to better. Having grown up with De La Soul and the Hip Hop electro compilation tapes of the Eighties. World weary from watching Hip Hop go down the gangster route. My hand was forced due to charperone duties. Off I ventured to Sheffield Plug venue to see the Rizzlekicks. Having only heard a couple of singles, the cd was duly slipped into the stereo for the journey down.

Surprised yes. Refreshing yes. Vocal ticks are straight outta the Aspects album "Correct English" and the quirky nature of the tunes too. It could be a direct linage. Thats not to degrade this album. It puzzles me how and why they are attached and promoted with such acts as One Direction and the Brit pop manufactured dirge. They are more than that pap. This is clever mature Hip Hop.

What amazes me after seeing them live, is how toned down this album is. Again not a critism. Live these tracks come into there own, its pure English Hip Hop on Speed.

Get this album and buy the Aspects Correct English and Mystery Theatre and you wont go wrong.

As the Guardian newspaper once said of the Aspects debut "Aspects are the brightest hopes for British hip hop". Well the Rizzlekicks are not only the brightest... "they are million candles brighter".

I was a bit worried about buying this album as I considered it for youngsters and I am 56! I had heard a couple of tunes and decided to go for it, so glad I did. It's funny, and uplifting! Great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously talented 28 April 2014
By Louise
Format:Audio CD
The greatest duo to have come out of the British music industry in years, (yes, even over Disclosure!) Rizzle Kicks are simply everything hip hop should be, smart, sharp, and tolerant. They've captured a very old-school happy-go-lucky image, but don't let that convince you that there's no substance behind it. Wise beyond their years, Rizzle Kicks are well worth the Brit School hype, and well above the Brit School stereotypical bubblegum pop image. Simply fantastic, there's no other words to describe their feel.
