Keeping up with the series of consecutive singles, XXXSSS Tokyo delivers their fourth
release to wrap up 2016 with a loud, bassy and infinitely energetic bang.
This combo of Ukraine born / UK raised XLII, and Japan born / NYC raised DJ SARASA has
been ruining fresh sneakers and fine clothing of dancers worldwide, from main stage at
ULTRA JAPAN and Olympic Stadium in Korea to tropical bashments in Indonesia and
goosebump locations in Mexico.
First there was something not entirely unlike soca with “Kinisunna”, then there was something not entirely unlike
Brazil with “B.O.P.E” and then we said upon them: “Thou shalt dance really really wonky to the wonkiest of
whistles” and they so did with “Porra”. Now, we deliver you the most beastly song in the history of XXXSSS. We
give you DAWGZ. No, not your homies. This one is literally all about thugged out Chihuahuas, ripped
Pomeranians and dodgy Pugs.
We’ll be honest, this tune is pretty doggy. So doggy, it’ll make you snarl. It’s so doggy, it’s got actual barks in it.
It’s so very doggy, the cover’s got a dog face on it. The very dogginess of it made us call it DAWGZ. Besides the
cover, AND the title, AND the pug references, AND all the barks, there’s also a particularly doggy vocal sample to
put the sheer dogginess of this track in perspective. Expect to be howling, chasing tail, humping chair legs and
hounding the DJ for a reload. When I say woof, you say woof! WOOF!!!
KINISUNNA! (Don’t Worry) feat. MC MOGGYY (Out Sep 30, 2016)
Is it soca? Is it hip-hop? Or could it be some kind of twerky hint at carnival? Nobody will ever know. What we do know is that the shy girl 3 rows down threw her shoe up because the heel broke and then did squats. There was also a businessman spraying strangers with foamy dranks and a barmaid serving herself. This song isn’t asking for much - lose the worries and throw your shizz up in the ayeeer. If you don’t have shizz, then maybe throw a gunfinger? Nobody minds. MC MOGGYY, the busiest voice in Osaka, delivers an equal mix of vibes and laughs and “hype man ting”. Snares roll like Trinidad, kicks stomp like London, except that this is Tokyo and everybody is bouncing.
This coming Tuesday, me and DJ SARASA are taking over the stage at Niku Festival. That’s right, meat festival. If you like a bit of riot sound with you weekday BBQ, come through! It’s free… Not the food of course.
