Rico Tubbs “Knuckle Sandwich” the album is out at the end of June on Menu Music
Take a little bit of Baltimore, add a dash of rave stabs, throw in a little hip hop sample here and there, then allow to cook for 6 minutes with a massive bassline and what do you get? This amazing LP that will blow you mind with massive support from the likes of Sinden, Annie Mac, Switch, Crookers, Hannah Holland and Ras Kwame. It’s the perfect melting pot of musical styles with a good dose of fun thrown in for good measure.
