Meet Da King & I... this was one of those albums that you flick through your collection and go "damn i forgot this shit!!!" This was a pretty dope album back in the day and its aged really well too. You can whack it on a turntable still and the head nods start pretty much straight away and it continues the whole way through this good good album!
I had a friend round the other day and we started to dig out some classic shit when he found this and asked "whats this man?" obviously i grinned straight away and told him to clear away from the decks and threw it on.
The album starts with a funky little intro then bursts full pelt into a gem of a track called "Lets take a trip" my friend was like "yeah thats some good shit" so i just left the album to run through as i knew he was gonna get more impressed as it went on.
The 3rd track on the album was also a pretty sweat 12" back in the day and was what first got me onto the group in the first place "Flip Da Scrip" Now this was straight up head noddin magic! awesome beat and bassline just makes you wanna listen more to this crew.
Other great tracks from Da King & I were "Krak Da Weazel" ... "Lost My Mind" And also the singles released from this album gave us 2 great remixes "Krak Da Weazel (remix) " and the amazing " Tears (remix)" I prefer the album version but i'm sure you will check it for yourself after hearing these tracks!
Unfortunately this was about it from this crew??? not quite sure what happened which is a shame! I did a lot of digging to find out some more about Da King & I but didnt come across much untill i came across (by accident too) the myspace page of Dj Majesty hope you like this album as much as i do? Oh yeah 1993 if you was wondering.
