Oxide & Neutrino : Dem Girlz
Oxide & Neutrino would rather smoke their laurels than rest on themMore on
While the rest of the garage establishment are still knocking out endless Holby Cities in the wake of 2000’s ‘Bound 4 Da Reload’, Neutrino and Oxide flee the building with this multi-textured 80s electro-flavoured banger. As a Cyprus-based retelling of JAY-Z’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ it may lack the lyrical subtlety of Mr Hova ("Don’t know her name, but let’s call her a slapper" is unlikely to trigger the Ivor Novello alert siren) but the tales of cleavage-thrusting gold-diggers shows that Oxide & Neutrino would rather smoke their laurels than rest on them. Sadly, the line "I taught her small axes chop down big trees" dispels one popular myth about Neutrino. Shame.
