Here’s a little about the mutated thumb shaped project.
You wouldn't think a collaboration from two chaps living in very different corners of the Britain would work. One residing in the pebble dashed charm of North Wales, the other hailing from the anonymous streets of South London. But the bastard child of PLAY and BASTIC seems to hold up nicely.
Plastic Thumbs pull all their influences from reggae, funk and the golden era of hip-hop. The duo have spent the last few years playing festivals and clubs separately, alongside acts such as Scratch Perverts, DJ Nu-Mark, The Nextmen, Mr. Scruff and many more, but have now pulled together with the same focus, colliding the buzz and crackling energy of dancehall with rhyme splattered beats and gut-wrenching low-end bass lines.
"The Plastic Thumbs sound is a fresh mash of classic ragga party jams, big whompy basslines, and extra crunky beats running the gamut from dancehall to b-more to baile to bashment. Their sets are constantly accelerating tornados of crunky, sassy, lose-your-shit party music." Wrote Whomptronica
"This is Huge!! A filthy mix of Big and Bashie Filth-Step to keep you amused”. Said Chrome Kids
"Just A Demo” is tight enough to be a full release. A thick, delicious
undercurrent of cheeky juxtapositions runs throughout their work, like a fudge ripple in Ben-n-Jerry's." Posted Heavy[dot]com.
