MOOQEE – Rippin Up The Party/ Polar Crunk – 2007 – (Promo) Single review
If anyone could get away with sampling Robbie Williams’ Rock DJ and making it credible – I guess it would be Mooqee - a man who also sees fit to bung in a bit of kindred spirit Mark Ronson’s Ooh Wee on Rippin Up The Party. From what I've heard, he's used more obvious samples than he has a right to have produced decent tracks with and yet his luck seems to be holding. His website’s still under construction and he’s described as ‘breakbeat/ hip-hop/ electronica’ on his myspace though he’s not fooling me – this stuff used to be called ‘big beat’ in the 90s – but most of it wasn’t this good. Not that Rippin Up The Party is the best track on this promo - that’ll be Polar Crunk. This track features the Joe Thomas Polarizer sample (also used by The High And Mighty on 90s hip-hop classic B-Boy Document, fact fans) as well as a b-line with more bounce than a sugar-rushing fat kid in an inflatable castle. Is it too early for a 90s revival? Apparently not but if it sounds like this, it’s probably ok.
