We could all do with a superhero once in a while, right? Thankfully the one provided by Kartoons doesn’t exactly fly across skyscrapers, rescuing people from the clutches of evil however, if you really wanted Nicky to, he would no doubt don a cape and skintight suit the next time he graces the decks!
The original ‘Superhero’ by The House Crew was released way back in 1994 and what a time to be alive that was. Jungle music was literally exploding all over the UK, we had a great choice of events to attend and nobody really knew exactly what they were doing - perfect. Times have changed no doubt but the spirit of jungle music lives on, especially with the likes of Monk, Papa G, Profile, Sub Killaz and Alcemist who have all provided their unique take on the original classic.
Monk & Papa G’s 2020 relick will make you smile from ear to ear. Their huge attention to detail gives them ultimate bragging rights in respect of remixing a classic, bringing it up to date yet retaining everything that was brilliant about the original. The Monk ‘95 Unreleased VIP’ is certainly something special and it’s been a long time coming for some die hard junglists. No beard stroking required here.
Profile and Sub Killaz of course provide a 2020 jump up relick with plenty of oomph and a frenzy of midrange bass. Alcemist reloads the clock, slipping into 2019 territory, speeding up the BPM and sticking it all in a big mixing pot.
The lyrics “You can be my knight. Who's watching over me” are certainly timeless. What a way to end the year for Kartoons.
