Once upon a time, there was a band called De La Soul, whose spectacular blend of high-camp, funk riffs, boom-bap and lyrical acrobatics influenced generations of musicians and truly defined 90s hip-hop. If this is news to you, you'll be bowled over by the Young Fathers, an Edinburgh-based hip-hop act who seem to have nailed everything from the psychedelic golf wear, to the body-popping riddims, to the infectious hooks of Native Tongues' finest.
For anyone else, Young Fathers are one of the most stupidly entertaining Scottish hip-hop acts out there, brimming with wicked hooks, freewheeling verse and crisp boom-bap, they dress like Andre 3000 and sound like Too Live Crew colliding with the Wiggles. Awshum.
Their new single Fevers Worse (out now) has been reworked by fellow Scottish faves and LuckyMe staple The Blessings. We've got it right here for you to download. Get it in the boomboxes.
