mister T. - Big Day (Cold Busted)

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.
