About this item

Third in the illusive Tru Thoughts "Black Gold" series, this latest incarnation is an up front collection of forthcoming Tru Thoughts music exclusively available on this 12”. These releases are vinyl only, limited to 500 copies.

First up is a true super group. Sleepin’ Giantz are three legends of the UK music scene. Zed Bias on production with lyrics from Rodney P and Fallacy. Tru Thoughts have a full album from the Giantz due later this year but this club anthem sees their first ever appearance as a trio. "Badungdeng" is a swinging, banging UK funky slammer - a heavy, heavy track. Next up is The Colonel with MC DRS (Broke N English). The Manchester MC has been causing a storm with his recent Metalheadz release with Need For Mirrors and this tune is made for the dancefloor. To finish off we have the highly sought after Cottam, taking things deep and dirty. Afro-Tech house styles, again with some hefty weight in the beats and bass. Gilles Peterson has already got behind this one.


Philippa says: UK funky, jaunty hip hop and tough house cuts from Sleepin’ Giantz, The Colonel Feat MC DRS and Cottam.


1. Sleepin’ Giantz - Badungdeng
2. The Colonel Feat MC DRS - Can I Get Some
3. Cottam - Hit The Wall (Frustration)
