SPOX PHD (Oxygen & DJ Spinna) - Chicken Scratch (Ltd. Edition Yellow Vinyl 7")


Here we find the highly anticipated second release from the dynamic duo SPOX PHD.
“Chicken Scratch” displays emcee Oxygen’s masterful lyricism showcasing a barrage of crafty, rapid fire word play with Dj Spinna cutting up doubles of an obscure chicken clucking drum break. That’s all. Very simple formula. Quite reminiscent of an early 80’s park jam, but with a modern edge.
The B-side “Actual Fact” is reminiscent of a short feature film from 2 of hip hop’s elite directors. With mc Apani B Fly making a guest appearance, this is an honest compact testimony from Oxygen reflecting on his life story and crossroads he’s confronted over the last 2 decades. There’s no debating his veteran status and this song offers some insight to aspiring artists and listeners who’ll relate to the daily effort of being true to who you are when your environment doesn’t always promote your agenda. Spinna provides an instrumental thick in texture opening with syncopated piano chords and punchy drums as the foundation for his signature accompaniment from multiple sound sources. Listeners should note the use of the rolling kick throughout the drum sequencing. This resumes comfortably where their last 7” left off and must have for fans of authentic NY hip hop.
