"Live At The Capri" is essentially a big beat remix of Funkadelic's "You'll Like It Too", using the hip hop beat from Slick Rick's "Mona Lisa" and samples from Jimmy Bo Horne's "Let Me Be Your Lover", Greg Nice's "Set It Off", Big Kap's "Push 'Em Up", and the themes from "Superman" and "The Incredible Hulk". ★★★★★

"King Tito's Gloves" is another blistering, dancefloor-oriented dose of big beat, sampling "Bad Mouthin" by Motown Sounds, KC & the Sunshine Band's "Let It Go", and "This Is It" from Style Wars. ★★★★

This wax I took backpacking with 10 other select vinyls, which worked really well with an array of other cultural styles.
I think A2 samples The Incredible Hulk

The cries("This is it!" etc.)at the start of 'King Tito's Gloves'are sampled from seminal 1983 New York graffiti documentary 'Style Wars'. The scene is a group of graff writers seeing the result of their night-time efforts appear on the side of a moving train. The illustration on the centre comes from the poster for 70's NY train-hostage thriller 'The Taking of Pelham 123', the soundtrack of which is a beat-head's wet dream. Another Deadly Avenger release is called 'We took Pelham'. Is this guy taking trainspotting too far or what? The music itself is a similarly reverent, spot-the-sample mash up of trip-hop, breaks and house. I seem to remember this stuff being referred to at the time as Small Beat; i.e. kinda like Fatboy Slim only light on the cheese.

King Tito's Gloves is a fantastic blend of disco house and breakbeat with a large dollop of funk thrown in for good measure,an absolutely blistering dancefloor tune.The remaining tunes run a far more downbeat groove.
