Although at first we referred to Spank Rock as a duo (MC Naeem ‘Spank Rock’ Juwan on the rhymes and Alex ‘Armani’ Epton aka XXXchange on the beats, mixing electro, booty house, acid, Miami-bass, glitchcore and grime under the influence of the clubs in Baltimore), over time it’s become clear that Spank Rock is Naeem’s project. He chooses his partners according to what he feels like at the time, and the proof of that is the fact that XXXchange only features on part of the second album.
After the tribute to 2 Live Crew he made three years ago with Benny Blanco ( “ Bangers & Cash EP ”), and in the wake of his recent tribute to disco under the moniker Mobroder, Juwan returns with a fistful of vicious basslines and lyrics which would make your mum blush, and maybe even you. The follow-up to “YoYoYoYoYo” (Big Dada, 2006) will come out on 13th September under the title “Everything Is Boring and Everyone Is a Fucking Liar”. The production is in the hands of Boys Noize (who’s also the executive producer), Pharrell Williams, Squeak E. Clean (from N.A.S.A), Chris Rockswell and, of course, XXXchange. As a first advance track, we leave you with “Energy”, one of the tracks produced by Alex “Boys Noize” Ridha.
