Boomkat Product Review:
A stalwart of the Big Dada roster, New Flesh are back with the follow-up to 'Understanding' - with 'Universally Dirty' taking the Brit-Hop rule book and giving it good fraying round the edges. Whilst the specter of grime rose to supplant the more traditional British-flavours a few years back, it has now fallen to the old-guard to provide the most appealing treats - with Roots Manuva, New Flesh and honoree lad Sway all firing out instantly addictive rhymes and beats. Just as satisfying as they were the first time round, New Flesh aren't traditionalist in terms of production - with the likes of 'Home Movie' propping up the marble-mouthed rhymes through some fiercely wrought electro beats+buisness. From here it's a rich (yet never overwhelming) master class in what makes British hip-hop such an exciting place to exist, with the likes of 'Give Up The Flight' (a frenetic shower of pepped verbosity) and the loping spasms of 'Who's The Daddy?' worth the entrance fee alone. Undoubtedly one of 2006's most edible hip-hop missives, New Flesh are back with a vengeance.
