*(Female voice on DJ Fatman's I Wanna)
I like booty bass. I like big buTTS and I can-NOT lie - no, wait. Sorry.
Miami booty bass, ghetto-tech, accelerated funk - call it what you will,
there's nothing quite like it to make your hips go bomp.
It's a synthesis of hip-hop, electro, techno and drum'n'bass; a combo
of hyperspeed beats, sleazy bass reverb, turntable tricks, and explicit
Some of the finest examples of the genre can be seen on last year's mix
album from Disco D, A Night at the Booty Bar (Tommy Boy); and the figurehead
of the whole movement must surely be DJ Assault, whose Jefferson Avenue
album has just been re-released on Inuit-Solar records.
DJ Deeon, DJ Zap, DJ Profit, DJ Nehpets, DJ Fatman, DJ Skip, and DJ Nasty:
I've got no idea who any of these are, but they're all on A Night at the
Booty Bar. Like most dance music, what's important is less the individual
producers of the tracks, more the overriding mood; and the overriding
mood of booty bass, or ghetto-tech (as Disco D calls it) is this: I HAVE
A MASSIVE BONER AND I INTEND TO STICK IT UP A HOE'S ASS.
|Sex drips and oozes off these
records: lewd, lascivious, deliberately offensive. This is a music which
celebrates men exploiting women for voyeuristic and sexual gratification:
the lexicon is 'titties', 'ass', 'pussy', 'hoes', 'bitches', 'suck', 'fuck',
Now here at AMP we're way down with the rough stuff, but not when it gets
just plain... lame. On Jefferson Avenue the women are told how to dress
('I like those girls with them g-strings on / you don't see no panty lines'),
what to expect if they don't meet Assault's hygiene standards ('skank-ass
bitches / who need to wash up/ don't get mad when I don't wanna fuck / you
need soap and water') and how to react when your liaison with him reaches
its inevitable, eye-stinging climax ('hoe don't cry / when I nut in your
eye / let it drip down your face / trick, how does it taste?'). Thanks for
the advice, Assault m8!
