Today was a big day for me. My SOUNDCLOUD hit 20,0000 plays. It’s quite a monumentous number to reach, and I’m so grateful to all of you Dead Kids that have been pumping and sharing my mixes and tunes.
To say thanx, I’ve temporarily enabled DOWNLOADS on my newest track, which has also got me quite excited.
MISS C & GOBBY Z – LOLLIPOP SKANK
On one drunken winter night, at a UK FUNKY party, in Toronto, me and my homeboy, Dave, came up with the chorus for song celebrating the petite girls in the club. “Represent the Lollipop Queens/ If you’re too short to be seen”.
About a whole year later, my UK homegirl, MISS C, was visiting Toronto, and wanting to collab on a tune with me. I pulled out the chorus for Lollipop Skank, thinking that Miss C had just the right amount of sass to pull it off. The idea got some good looks from her, so I laid down some beats, and she came up with additional vocals to compliment the chorus. After a little session, we had ourselves a song, but it was a VERY different song from anything else I had produced.
I ended up sitting on the tune for another whole year. To be honest, I was a bit scared of it. Being that I’m a rotting corpse, I didn’t think I could get away with putting my name on a tune that was so… well… cute. It was positive re-inforcement from Miss C that finally convinced me to go ahead and put it up. I’m happy to say that she made a good call. the feedback on the tune has been extremely positive.
Give it a spin for yourself, and feel free to leave a COMMENT on the timeline. It’s my first attempt at a GLOBAL BASS vibe, and I’d like to get as many opinions as possible while we decide what to ultimately do with this tune.
Now, I’m only enabling FREE DOWNLOADS for 24 HOURS, so chances are that as YOU are reading this, it is no longer available. In that case, here’s the next best thing…
DATSIK – FIREPOWER (MUNCHI MOOMBAHCORE RMX) ((GOBBY Zs JUNGLE VOODOO EDIT))
Hopefully, you’ve heard this edit in my NOW YOU DEAD studio mix. I re-arranged the tune so that it transitions from blistering BREAKCORE to pure fiya MOOMBAHCORE, from the master, MUNCHI.

And to think this all started with an abundance of alcohol and a VERY short girl.
