5.0 out of 5 stars Latest & Greatest
Classy, sassy offering from badmeaninggood to satiate the hip-hop pallete. From start to finish, the album is well mixed and the choice of tunes is unfeasibly good. The inclusion of Scorpios' Theme (Dirty Harry) mixed into Ghost Town by the Specials is worth the album price alone.
Mixed by the Scratch Perverts, this album reflects their laid back, cut up, spliced up...

This review is from: Badmeaningood Vol.4: Mixed By the Scratch Perverts (Audio CD)
Classy, sassy offering from badmeaninggood to satiate the hip-hop pallete. From start to finish, the album is well mixed and the choice of tunes is unfeasibly good. The inclusion of Scorpios' Theme (Dirty Harry) mixed into Ghost Town by the Specials is worth the album price alone.
Mixed by the Scratch Perverts, this album reflects their laid back, cut up, spliced up style. Samples are plentiful and the mixing is seamless.
I couldn't help but be impressed with classics like M.O.P.s Ante Up, closely followed by Les Fleur by Mini Ripperton back to back and sounding like they should be played together. The inclusion of Hip Hop saviour DJ Shadow with the track Entropy and Dr Octagon make this album the most essential purchase so far this year.
Buy it, Play it LOUD and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Itchy, 10 July 2003

This review is from: Badmeaningood Vol.4: Mixed By the Scratch Perverts (Audio CD)
The fourth installment of the acclaimed 'Badmeaninggood' series of mixes from the cream of the hip-hop crop sees the decks handed to London-based battle DJs the Scratch Perverts (a partnership between Tony Vegas, Plus One and DJ Prime Cuts). And what a rollicking adventure in sound they have produced, threading in slips of soul, electro and reggae through the hip-hop / rap staple as seamlessly as your grandma's sewing.
There're 20 tracks all up, so the mix doesn't linger too long at any one point. There's the angelic sounds of Minnie Ripperton's 'Les fluers', the delicious shenanigan's of Schooly D's 'Saturday Night', the hoarse, needling rap of M.O.P.'s 'Ante Up', and the rare original version of UK hip-hop anthem 'Money Mad' by London Posse to chow down on. Alongside the reggae sounds of Specials' 'ghost town' and the superb scratching of Doctor Octagon's 'Bear Witness', the Scratch Perverts have thrown in their first original production - the last track, titled 'Beat Down'.
From Kool G Rap's slick rapping & twanging bass loops to the boozy organs of Mickey & the Soul Generation, if this is your scene, you'll enjoy this offering from the Scratch Perverts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The true face of hip-hop, 25 Jun 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Badmeaningood Vol.4: Mixed By the Scratch Perverts (Audio CD)
This album takes you on a journey discovering the true nature of hip-hop. This is for all the people who appreciate that Gansta rap is just a poor relation of true hip-hop. The album progresses through the roots of hip-hop with respect to artists like The specials and Kool G Rap, moving through the ages via legends like Dj Shadow, then seamlessly the Scratch Perverts redefine what modern hip-hop should be and this group definately lead by example. This is not an exercise in skills-based Dj'ing, but the skills, these world leaders have, shines through in the quality of the tracks. This is definatly worth buying as it is brilliant and fresh from start to finish

5.0 out of 5 stars give it time...., 2 Dec 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Badmeaningood (Audio CD)
The Scratch Perverts have come out with an album that needs time and an open mind to appreciate. Personally being a mainstream hip-hop and rnb fan, I was introduced to the SP's music by friends and was blown away by their inventiveness, ingenuity and experimental mentality which quite frankly overshadows all tired and pop-esque rap that has flooded the market in the late 90's. The Perverts are not afraid to dabble in soul, jazz and old skool to create a truly unique and obscenely entertaining soundscape that harks back to the days when hip hop was true to itself and to black culture. Give it time and effort, and you too will learn to love this gem. And by the way, they're British.
