about

A silly concept album mixing what I call ballroom music (big band jazz, exotica, latin jazz, easy listening, bossa nova, cha cha, samba, swing, space age etc) with hip-hop and rhythm and blues.

Planned as the first DJNoNo album in 2005, I finished Stripper Jackson and Cha Cha Like It's Hot to a chorus of mass apathy so the project got shelved, although most of these tracks were planned back then.

Given that ten years later I was retiring - it didn't last long - I revisited it and completed it with a few extra tracks - the Death Grips is definitely one of those as D.G. didnt exist in 2005! But the rest are pretty much as they were planned in 2005.

I was surprised no-one had done this project in that period - given the rise of Strictly Come Dancing I thought it inevitable that someone would do it, saving me the bother. Nope.

My first ever attempt at a mashup was Eminem vs the music from Watch, the BBC School for Kids series. It was so bad I never finished it, but 'Super Wheels' is a nod to that.

Dedicated to Mr Fab, Evolution Control Committee and all the Crumplebangers Crew.
