The Magic Fly

Two Planets (feat. Ricky Ranking)

Bastard Jazz Recordings

Released: 6th October 2009 | 3 track broken beat single
Bastard Jazz's newest release comes from Brighton's The Magic Fly featuring UK soundsystem veteran Ricky Ranking (recently known for appearances on The Bug's London Zoo and Roots Manuva's Awfully Deep) on microphone duties. Two Planets is a big summertime crate mainstay, nudging itself right into disco dub territory with Mr. Ranking's chat's riding right in the pocket. To the B Side, Bristol's Mr. Benn (Leisure Recordings) flips the flavour of the original version into a dancehall stormer, throwing some nasty 90's drum'n'bass wobble stylings into the mix, with just a touch of Baltimore club for added heat. Also included is the original instrumental. Airplay on Solid Steel (Ninja Tune) + BBC Radio (Don Letts) On rotation with DJs like Kraak En Smaak, Drop The Lime, 7 Samurai, DJ Vadim, Simbad, J-Boogie, In Flagranti, and more.... Review + Reaction: Rob Watson aka Magic Fly returns to Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz label for a funky fusion of disco and reggae styles. The original mix of 2 Planets(1) combines a snappy disco beat with skankin' reggae guitars and Ricky Ranking adding that ragga MC touch to please the crowd. Definitely one that'll get the place moving for sure (I can imagine Sabo killin' it with this). Mr. Benn gives it the Bumbaclog remix(2) on the flip that sways the disco vibes for more of a tough dancehall riddim with big bass wobbles underneath. Also includes the especially tasty instrumental for the OG. - Turntablelab You can always rely on Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz imprint to turn out strange nuggets like this. The original mix of 'Two Planets' is what we'd describe as an up-rocking-ragga-disco oddity but please feel free to ascribe your tag to this dancefloor weirding production. Faring much better is Mr. Benn's Bumbaclog remix on the flip, taking Ricky Ranking's ace vocal and retuning it to a smart ragga house riddim. Very odd, very cool. -Boomkat Shakin to the sound of 2 planets...wicked dizko ragga style!!! I like!! - Tom Wieland aka 7 Samurai Biiiiig Ricky Ranking ragga bash crazy jams!! Cheers. I will def play these! - Drop the Lime Nice package, the Mr Benn remix of Two Planets wins out. - A La Fu (Big Dada) That Mr Benn mix is pure fire!!! Gonna be using that a lot! - Shepdog (Nice Up! Records) Very nice release. The original is a great mix of fresh dancefloor sounds and the Mr Benn remix is killing it! - Dusty (Jazz & Milk) Great release, the original mix is top notch! - Slim (GoodGroove Records)
