Disposable Rappers

A 2 track alternative rap/hip-hop single (6m 13s) — released July 5th 2010 on First Word Records
Herma Puma are transatlantic Hip Hop duo Pimpernel Jones (UK) and Simple X (Chicago USA). The duo met through a shared love of crate-digging for old library records, and began to make music trading ideas and beats across the web. When they added collaborations with emcees from both sides of the pond they soon had enough tracks to create their debut album Synchromystic. Their golden-era Hip Hop takes it's lead from the likes of Pete Rock and Prince Paul, with added nods to psych-rock, space-jazz and beyond. This 7" is their debut release and is a perfect introduction to the long-player. Disposable Rappers is a funk-break style Hip Hop track reminiscent of Ugly Duckling or J5 with rappers Sensei of Soul and D-Nick trading rhymes over HP's tight production. On the flip Psyche Out does exactly that, with a DJ Format-esque funk workout and an addictive bassline creating a surefire dancefloor bomb. All copies of the 7" come with a free download code for the full album, so it's a real bargain for the vinyl fans out there. Look out for a forthcoming remixes EP and much more from Herma Puma later in 2010. 'Psyche out is the standout track on a tasty release. More please!' DK, DJ Food, Ninja Tune 'BIG fan of these boys!! Been on my radar for a while. Loads of support from me.' Dom Servini, Wah Wah 45s / Blues & Soul
