1200 Techniques feat Ghostface Killa - Flow Is Trouble

Written by  | 06 October 2015

Award winning Australian group 1200 Techniques are officially back on the block, after taking a well deserved hiatus from the better part of a decade. The group have been scheduled to drop a new album any minute now, but in the meantime have given us this dope little taster in the form of this limited edition seven inch press featuring Ghostface Killah from Wu-Tang clan - and when I say limited, I'm talking about 150 hand numbered releases in total.

The band have always had a great handle on writing infectious party jams, and this one sits very nicely into thier already established repertoire. Kemstar provides a dense guitar riff (Reminiscent of the groove in Barry Whites "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More") that sits effortlessly over the beats layered with a couple of sparse samples. DJ Peril has lined up some great vocal snippets in the chorus that change up the track nicely before settling back into its catchy groove.

Rapper N'fa kicks off the proceedings, setting up the template and showing that he hasn't lost any of the lyrical prowess he is known for. Ghostface sounds very much at home over this beat. He settles into the groove immediately and gives up that dope lyrical flow you come to expect from him.

The song is big and brash, unapologetic, and very catchy. Overall a great release and a welcome return from one of Australia's favourites.
