Hardnoise – Mice in the Presence of the Lion [1991]

YEAH. An absolute banger from UK Hip Hop outfit, Hardnoise. Demonstrating everything that was absolutely magical about early 90’s UK Hip Hop in just one song. Kick your Wednesday in the face with this, it deserves it.

From Discogs
DJ Son, DJ Nyce ‘D’. and T.L.P.1 got together to form Hardnoise. Primarily a sound system, but mainly friends from school/college. At college they teamed up with DJ AJ & Gemini & put together their first track, pure destructive Power, an unreleased gem, their 1st release was ‘Untitled’ a massive underground British rap tune using the famous ‘Apache’ sample from Michael Viner’s Incredible Bongo Band like never before. Produced by DJ Son, T.L.P.1 & Mastermix, with cuts by DJ Son & the newest member to the crew: Adam Pancho AKA DJ Mada (2), this was a self financed venture which Music Of life Signed them for. The crew’s second release was the single ‘Mice In The Presence Of The Lion / Serve Tea Then Murder’. Another firing release, with the M.C’s voicing solo tracks, each track showing their own unique styles. But sadly this was their last. So as elusively as they stepped on the scene, they disappeared from the scene, but not entirely, as they all carried on with their own projects, “AJ” Is currently producing beats & regularly puts out mix tapes (‘A.J’s Planet of the Beats’), Gemini did the Bushkilla tracks & is currently in the studio working on new material. He now goes under the title “BLOODHOUND”. “DJ Son” is DJing at clubs in the London area playing a mixture of soul, funk, breaks & rap. Some of the remains teamed up to form Son Of Noise. Unfortunately no news from T.L.P.1 anymore, but there are rumours he still writes lyrics. Adam Pancho too is still representing, he runs a nice website on British Rap.
