oh snap!! + hostage.

in case you've missed oh snap!! on his first round on the blogs earlier this year, he is best described as (quoting himself) 'your favorite mediocre whiteboy'.

i probably shouldn't reveal more, otherwise you might not even consider checking him out, so to spark your interest again, discodust favorite hostage has just done a nice fidget flavoured bouncing remix for oh snap!! that should get people moving on the dancefloor, especially those with bill cosby sweaters and reebok pumps:

oh snap!! - bill cosby sweater (hostage remix)

UPDATE: a minute after i published this post, mickey sent a brandnew song over that he just finished two days ago and i am almost convinced that oh snap!! is here to stay and will play an important role in the steadily growing 'rave rap' scene, enjoy this tribute to one of the freshest haircuts ever:

oh snap!! - high top fade

furthermore, here are two originals (that i have blatantly stolen from the awesome get weird turn pro) off the already released oh snap!! ep 'new snap!! city', available from amazon and probably a lot of other spots:

oh snap!! - i'm too fat to be a hipster
oh snap!! - how & why

and if you still can't get enough, here is a brandnew mix by oh snap!! featuring tracks by well-known discodust favorites like the bloody beetroots, hot pink delorean, revolte and crookers.

oh snap!! - two snaps with a twist mixx

the tracklist is in the comments. if you like what you hear, let oh snap!! know on myspace.

i will quote the venerable De La Soul in my review of this "rave rap" . . .

"That's it? That's all?
Van Damme!
What happened to the pimps?
What happened to the guns?
What happened to the curse words?! That's what rap music's all about, right?
That little bastard Jeff, he found this in the right place. GARBAGE!"

(not feelin it)

Discodust - you just made the comments worth reading

I love "I'm too fat". I want to hear a really massive remix of it so all the obese DJ's can play it out and say it loud

"I'm too fat to be a hipster!"

after giving it another listen, i must concede that it's pretty decent. i just have a harsh ear when it comes to raps over dance songs . . . a lot of BS out there. i think it's just the intro that got to me initially.

then again, i do like to play me some Uffie . . .

hypocrisy abounds!!!!!
