Stats for this track
The Young Punx return for their second full studio album, a startling and inventive exploration of the deliberate destruction of genre boundaries in electronic music. Probably the first album in history to have toyed with drum and bass, heavy metal, electropop and cuban timba within the first 5 minutes (!)
"Mashpop and Punkstep" is a vibrant manifesto for the next generation of mashup music. Featuring the epic collaboration with Memphis hip hop Don 'Count Bass D' - "Ready For the Fight" (already heard as the theme music for EA Games "Fight Night 4" and as official entry music for world middleweight champion Arthur Abraham), the J-pop electro disco of SugarCandySuperNova and the Ragga House of "Juice and Gin" the album spans Puccini Opera, Punk rock, hip hop, synth pop, Japanese rock and much more...
What the blogs are are saying about Mashpop and Punkstep:
Blastercase - "An epic breakbeat-dancehall-techno-rocking-hip-hop-electro-mind-fuck... Highly recommend grabbing their debut album" Disco Demos - "You You You has easily convinced me to mention the album on my site. It's like a cross-section of contemporary music, totally amazing"
The Culture of Me - "There is no such thing as a great electronic record; there is in fact only a such thing as a great record. Mashpop & Punkstep is that great record... one of the best "pop" records we've heard in years"
