Beats and Styles presents: "Allstars"
The newest release from
Beats and Styles in Germany at the moment is "Allstars".
On 28.8.2003 Alimo&Control flew featured artists on the album from all over
the world to perform at the album release
party. On the same weekend they also decided to record a new track with all
these artists featured on it. The beat was called "allstars" and everybody
in the crew liked it right away.
On one sweaty afternoon at the studio we god Slarta John (Basement Jaxx) / UK,
Papa Dee (First Cut is the Deepest and of course Girls
anthem) / SWE, Z-MC (Drum and the Bass and Bomfunk MCs:
Back to Back) / USA, MC Jus Red (Smoove @ Ministry of Sound and Beats&Styles
Anthem) / UK, MC Venom / UK and the mysterious London MC. Some female colour comes
from Kallaghan / UK. For the chorus line we got the trustworthy MaxC, who's
also featured on Dynamite. So very international in deed!

"B&S Anthem"/"Summer tune"
The second release from Beats and Styles is a perfect example of the versatile
and international style this label can offer. With vocalists from Brazil, UK,
USA and Finland and well produced drum'n'bass/new school party breaks/UK garage-flavours
this one is definately takin Beats and Styles to the map.
On the D&B-side
you've got a brazilian style drum'n'bass roller "Summer Tune" with
touching vocals by Brazil's Papa Ricky. But the bomb is set at "Anthem"
on the UKG-side. The absolutely rolling MC-lick by MC Jus Red from the UK takes
the tune into a completely new level.
