As Greece's vibrant scene for funky hip hop and jazzy breakbeats continues to flourish, the Cold Busted label is there on the lookout. This time they've snatched up another high-quality release from the enigmatic Athens-based DJ and producer named mister T. The album Big Day features twelve rhythm-ready tracks, all full of bounce and swing, and many featuring talented vocalists to further spice up the mix. The album opens with "A True Story", transporting a head-nodding boom-bap vibe into a smokey speakeasy jazz club from a foregone era. The diversity of mister T.'s set is shown in Big Day's many other highlights, including the speedy breakbeat -- with scratches and horns! -- of "Yo", the cheeky nu-disco funk of "This Is Not A House Track", and the slinky strut, whispered vocals, and gritty organ riffs of "Move Like Us". The vocal tracks also excel … "Everybody Is Going To Be There", featuring Lucy Lune Gillespie, and other album cuts with Katie Rose Summerfield and JoGoldie, create a classic funk feel while remaining in the contemporary 'beats n' breaks' zone for modern floors. It's prime time for mister T. … Big Day feels like a huge discovery.
