Taking the Piss EP

Second To None
It doesn't get much rowdier than this bassline banger from Leeds crew Vital Techniques, even if the combination of MC Pean's frenetic vocals and 'Taking the Piss's heavy wobs and ravey stabs is so full-on that it reminds you just a little bit of one of Kurupt FM's busier studio efforts. To be fair, there is an instrumental mix, for those who like their beats a little less intense. Personally I prefer the EP's supporting tracks, taking in the beefy but laconic four-four of 'Hold On', the kung fu movie sampling 'Shadow Boxing', and the breakbeat throbout of 'Supply and Demand', which uses Pean more sparingly.
