Katch22 "Dark Tales From Two Citie" 1993

Fantastic album by the UK hip hop crew Katch 22, this is their second effort from 1993. The UK hip hop scene may have a bad reputation, but I love it, very overlooked (both now and then), the UK groups from back then did their own kind of hip hop, a bit faster than the US scene, and coloured it with different danceable grooves from the period, sometimes with a jamaican flavour. But Katch 22 sounded very american, and mixed joyful melodies/beats/sampling in the more traditional american way. To me one of the best UK acts, sadly they broke up in 1994.
