About this item

JJ produced all the tracks, DOOM provided the bulk of the vocals and compiled the cut and paste skits. DOOM recorded the album while ‘banished’ from the States and living in London. He references British culture throughout the album, name dropping British institutions, and possibly being the first emcee to reference My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. Jneiro recording the beats in the Dirty South, got into a UK state mind, and turned in heavy hip hop production that leans towards grime, dubstep and British techno.

The album will appeal to fans of classic DOOM material. JJ's tough, far out hip hop production will appeal to fans of
 J Dilla, Flying Lotus and El-P.

‘Key To The Kuffs (Butter Version Deluxe Edition)’ features 4 new JJ DOOM tracks including a new guest vocal by Del The Funky Homosapien, and remixes courtesy of Beck, Clams Casino, BADBADNOTGOOD, Thom Yorke / Jonny Greenwood , Dave Sitek. Other guest appearances from Beth Gibbons (Portishead), Damon Albarn (Gorillaz) and Khujo (Goodie Mob). Album artwork is by graffiti artist Steve Powers aka ESPO.
