Boomkat Product Review:
I'm beginning to think that I'm the guy in the corner scowling when I go to parties. Clearly I don't know how to have fun, I'd rather read a book on Middle Eastern philosophy and weep solemnly as I wonder what it would be like to feel the love of a real live girl. Ninja Tune on the other hand know exactly how to party, and in the spirit of those other party loving animals, known to most of us as 'students' they seem to be on something of a vodbull-fuelled high at the moment. DJ Kentaro, who I'm assuming is Japanese has put together this cheeky little album for the label, and following on from DJ Food's recent party-tastic mix it blends all kinds of upbeat booze fodder for your listening enjoyment (not mine, I'm a party pooper remember). We've got guest spots from trendy (if you read Vice) fellers Spank Rock, the Pharcyde (who haven't been good for 15 years, but whatever), Fat Jon (from Fat Jon and Styrofoam) and New Flesh, each artist contributing their own unique identity and letting Kentaro mash it up to get the ladies gyrating. It's all a bit too much for me though, being tee-total I may never understand a record like this, ever. Oh Morrissey, what would I do without thee. I'm going home now to hide and write poems to the podgy shop assistant in BHS who looked at me once three years ago.
