Mr Fantastic (featuring J.Todd of Def Harmonic) – All the Critics
New 7”/Digital single on High Noon Records HN020-7
Bristol based DJ/Producer Mr Fantastic has been making his mark since 1997 as quarter of Bristol Hip Hop crew Beat Route 38 (AEProductions), and also since 2004 handling Turntable duties for Bristol’s finest soul/funk/hip hop project Hundred Strong, while being a regular feature of Bristol’s DJ circuit – infamous for his Soul/Funk 45’s and classic Hip Hop sets.
For the first vinyl release under his own name and first outing on High Noon Records Mr Fantastic is ably assisted by J.Todd of Def Harmonic on vocals hinting at the trials of the British music industry – somewhat of a unique subject matter for an American but, J.Todd has spent a lot of his musical career here in the UK on Altered Vibes Records and touring with Hundred Strong, which is where Mr Fantastic came to know J.Todd.
On ‘All The Critics’ Mr Fantastic stays close to the funk with a beat sculpted from chunks of an organ heavy groove that bounces along creating a perfect platform for J.Todd’s slick vocals and Mr Fantastic’s turntable skills.
Stop press, new 7′ feat Mc Retna is mastered and ready for release in the next few months.
