Superteng by Wrongtom meets Deemas J
Wrongtom meets Deemas J’s critically acclaimed, reggae, dancehall and dub fuelled album ‘In East London’ was, for my money, one of the best UK releases of 2012. It has been hailed by many including Steve Lamacq, Huey Morgan, The Heatwave, Mojo, Q and the Wire as a stone-cold classic. I have listened to it repeatedly and this speaks volumes as these days it is rare that I play an album in its entirety.
Superteng is the second single from the LP and is a reverb-heavy, old school classic. The digital package includes the album, extended, instrumental and A Cappella versions of the track. Scoop, Alter Ego and Rico provide a pumping UK bass remix and Mo’ Matic a hip-hop, head-nodding makeover. The other great treasure of the package is the Benny Page Jump Up Drum and Bass remix of previous single ‘Jump + Move + Rock’. This is a must-have and turns the already dancefloor-friendly original into an end-of-the-night belter that you can’t help but move to. This will be featuring in my DJ sets for a long time to come. The remix is worth the price of the single alone but overall you get a lot of bang for your buck with this release.
Get yourself a copy of the single and pick up the album at the same time. The single was released on Tru Thoughts on April 1.
