Bombstrikes welcomes Ali B back to the label and this time he is joined by the multi talented Afika NX for the infectious track 'Swing It'. With a career spanning over 2 decades in music, Ali is somewhat of a pioneer. After making his mark at the legendary Blue Note club in the mid nineties, he went on to become the resident DJ for legendary club Fabric for over a decade, releasing one of the first albums in their mix CD series, and hosting radio shows on Capital and Kiss FM along the way. South African-American hip-hop artist Afika NX also brings a strong pedigree to the collaboration, he has picked up huge props for his musical output and is credited with an impossibly catchy style evoking both Bob Marley and Busta Rhymes in the same breath. The resulting music is something special, fusing 808 rhythms and contagious sax hooks seamlessly with Afika NX's impeccable flow. Flipping the tempo, Washington DC's own Funk legends Fort Knox 5 deliver a killer remix, toughening up the beats, adding guitar licks and keys to great effect. Also included is the very handy Instrumental mix. We guarantee this one will stick with you after just one listen.
