[BNB 061] Ill Boogs - King Of Kowloon
Ill Boogs has been one of the UK's top b-boys (break dancers), and influenced many of the now generation. He was one of the founding members of the Floor Science Crew and he went on to become a key member of the legendary Born To Rock and Sinstars Crews.
The label first got to know Ill Boogs when he came down to the early Brixton club sessions (way back in 1998) held by the Breakin Bread crew,. Since then Ill Boogs has probably been to more Breakin Bread parties than any other b-boy in the UK.
But he's not just a dancer, he's been making beats for MC's since 1991. Then in 2005 he sent a track called Gypsy Rock down to the Breakin Bread HQ. The track was made for breakin practice sessions and it got such rave reviews from the dancers that Boogs wondered if we might want to release it. We did and it went on to become a b-boy classic.
The track was included on a Rock Steady Crew mix CD put together by Skeme Richards called 'Bboy Essentials Vol II'. The track then got played at the Battle Of The Year finals and The UK B-boy Championships. Another 7" followed in 2007 (King Conga b/w Funky Ghost Town) and Boogs got props from all the best B-boy DJ's in the world (DJ Tee from Japan, DJ Woodoo from Switzerland, DJ Renegade from the UK and many more all play Ill Boogs on high rotation!)
Since then Ill Boogs has been working hard on the album and this is the lead single.
