Man Like Me. Man Like Who?
If you haven't heard of Man Like Me by now you deserve to get your ears
boxed. This 22-year-old pop-grime superhero tore up 2006 like an
over-enthusiastic puppy on Viagra let loose in a cattery.
MLM began his burgeoning career by showcasing his talents in his parent's
front room back in Feb 2006. A few months later he leaped from showing off
on the sofa in front of his Aunties to showing off on the stages at
Bestival and V, and at hip club spaces such as Adventures Of The Beetroot
Field at Canvas, Bugged Out at the End, Mish Mash at Cargo and Druzzis at
the T-Bar – not forgetting those dodgy gay clubs and school discos along
the way. 2006 also witnessed MLM bagging single of the week in the
Guardian Guide for his addictive slice of pop/electro/grime, `Wine &
Dine'. So there.
Now the time has come to unleash the MLM monster `Oh My Gosh' which has
already won over die-hard fans such as Rob Da Bank, Steve Lamacq and Mary
Anne Hobbs as well as Mylo, Queens of Noise and the Audio Bullies.
Alongside the more-addictive-than-crack original version, this release has
turned out some killer remixes. First up is king of old skool rave A Guy
Called Gerald - famous for dance classic 'Voodoo Ray' - with his playful
nod to the current rave revival. Next up are grime giants Roll Deep, fresh
from their involvement in Tate Tracks, where they wrote a piece of music
based upon the painting 'Ishi's Light' by Anish Kapoor. These East London
Eski boys have shaken up the original and spat out something for fans
everywhere. And last but not least is Ed Laliq's `Hoi Polloi' mix, the
name speaks for itself.
'Oh My Gosh' – do you give a toss?
Initially released as a promo CD-R single in November 2006, this finally
got a release over 6 months later (possibly because the record label seems
to have changed to Stop Start Recordings, as opposed to Non-Stop
Recordings?). The CD-R promo's volume levels are little low - it is
advisable to purchase a download of the remix (via iTunes, etc), as the
levels seem to be a lot better - however it *is* available on the commercial CD single, but the tracklisting is incorrect (actually the track labelled "Stairs" is the Gerald mix - "Stairs", itself, is elsewhere on the CD)!! :)
