rico tubbs.

finlands funkmaster number one rico tubbs is dropping his album 'knuckle sandwich' on menu music next monday, july 7th. the album will be full of banging club tracks featuring rico's trademark style famous for heavy uk garage influenced bass lines, hip hop samples, cracking snares and baltimore breaks. his recent tracks (mainly the killer tune 'gangsters') received huge support from all the major players in bass-heavy music and beyond like switch, sinden, drop the lime, deekline and crookers.

here is a brandnew cut from the album in a special edited (and shortened) version for discodust, so you have proof that the album won't be all wobble-bass:

rico tubbs - unbelievable (radio edit)

and in case you missed one of the largest slammers of the recent past, here is 'gangsters' in a special edit for our friends over at discobelle:

rico tubbs - gangsters (discobelle edit)

and i know you still can't get enough, as rico tubbs is simply one of the best sources for fresh tracks these days, so here is another track called 'i like it raw' where he has sampled, you've already guessed it, the legendary ol' dirty bastard (rest in peace, baby jesus!) and on top there is rico's recent mix-set for no love lost records:

rico tubbs - i like it raw
rico tubbs - exclusive nllr mix

many thanks to rico tubbs himself, discobelle, palms out sounds and no love lost records for the hookups. now go add rico tubbs on myspace and watch out for the album dropping on monday on beatport, track it down, itunes, you name it.
