The Flaws featuring MC Chickaboo
“The Flaws have produced a warped, electro-house banger with some x-rated lyrical content.”
– Ben Arnold, Jockey Slut
Bitches Brew’s fourth release, The Flaws’ “Freek”, sees the label taking yet another musical turn. Produced by Nikki Lucas and Tim Burns (Lacarno & Burns / Music Is Everything), “Freek” features the androgynous vocals of MC Chick-A-Boo who has worked with Soul 2 Soul, Goldie, DJ Rap, Timo Maas and Rennie Pilgrem just to name a few! Hailed as “the new century’s first pansexual dancefloor smash” by XLR8R , The Flaws got the big up from BBC Radio One jocks, DJ Erol and the NagNagNag crew.
“Freek” features an old school sounding original mix by Nikki Lucas and Tim Burns and a smokin’ remix courtesy of Ewan Pearson, formerly of Maas and World of Apples and who has recently produced The Raptures’ latest album.
“Freek” has been featured on Chicken Lips’ “Body Music” compilation, Cosmo’s “The Disco-Tech of DJ Cosmo”, BMG Belgium’s “Electro Chic”, Stefano Fontana’s “White Trash”, EMI Portugal’s “Moda Lisboa”, Ministry of Sound Australia’s “Clubber’s Guide to 2004″ and Silicon Soul’s “La Terrrazza” to name a few.
Panic featuring MC Chickaboo
Wouldn’t it be nice to whiz off to Trinidad for some cool vibes? No need to – grab this piece of smouldering vinyl and you will find everything you need: rhythm and percussion, cheeky lyrics by the one and only Chickaboo and if that isn’t enough there are also a couple of Charlie Dark remixes thrown in for good measure!”

With its Trinidadian soca flavourings, “Jam” is the perfect, well, jam to get the dancefloors , er, jammin’. Featuring vocals by Chickaboo who has worked with dance luminaries such as Soul 2 Soul, Rennie Pilgrem, Goldie, Timo Maas, and The Flaws, the song features percussion and steel pan by Joy, a Trinidadian native herself and the daughter of legendary calypso kingping Alexander D. Great. Producer Nikki Lucas has also provided a deeeeeeeep and gorgeous Freedom Fighter Dub for those into more of an instrumental sound. On the flip, an ace remix by Charlie Dark from Attica Blues and Blacktronica. He really spent some real time on this remix with it’s beautiful transitions and breaks and the subtle calypso / two-step vibe.
