New video from the Beekeepers (Parker & Boca 45) ahead of their release from Jalapeno Records in early July 2011..... A lot of nice remixes in this one !
RELEASE DATE: 4TH JULY 2011
Bristol duo The Beekeepers ramp up the pressure with the release of ‘Queen Bee’ – a killer collaboration with UK rapper Mystro that’s got the whole place buzzing.
The deep, moody and epic nature of their ‘Ascending Change EP’ earned them the number one spot on DMC’s ZZub Chart and lead to much head nodding approval from their peers. From Bristol – check. Respectful of “The Bristol Sound” – check. Heavy dub vibes - check. Well just before you compartmentalise The Beekeepers you need to check this.
In its original form ‘Queen Bee’ is a killer slice of uptempo party hip hop. It’s then hustled into a Back to 91 Tardis by Hint (who’d a thought he was a ruffneck raver at heart). Jalapeno stalwart Dr Rubberfunk drops some B-Boy badness in his mix using a funky as hell fuzz guitar riff while Beekeeper Parker turns in a dubstep mix under his day-job moniker. Finally Canadian Breakbeat hotshot Neon Steve turns in a heavy roller for the breaks crew. Sorted.
Mystro is one of the most exciting talents in UK hip-hop crossing over to a whole army of new fans with his ‘Round My Way’ single at the end of 2010. He has taken time out from recording his debut album ‘Mystrogen’ to drop two tracks on The Beekeepers album and has just been confirmed to perform with The Beekeepers at their Glastonbury show.
