And yet more good reviews come in for ‘Proper Horror Show’, Prince Kong’s quintessential dosage of dub grime nastiness.From Boomkat.com… What do you get if you cross the DJ Producer with Diplo and The Bug? Maybe something close to Prince Kong on ‘Proper Horror Show’. After a couple of storm-troopin ragga cuts for Alphabet Set and !Kaboogie Records he’s made an even more uncompromising effort for the newly minted Ghetto Quietly label, reeling between bushwacka Ragga-gabber on ‘Angsta’ feat Jah Balance, to hyper-Soca rinseouts featuring MC Quilombola on ‘Whailt’ and ‘Cazz’. It’s fair to say there’s not really owt around like this so it’s the finest example of this style that you’re going to find. boomkat.com … and Kong also has several other releases on the go at present. This is what the nice chaps at Wire magazine had to say about one of these in the October ’09 edition… “Cool single mixing classic reggae topping with a screwed up industrial underlayer. The tension between the forces is hypnotic.” Proper Horror Show is available as download and 2×12 inch vinyl from all good stores.

MMR’s new sister label Ghetto Quietly launches in Dublin this weekend with a rock solid line up of Prince Kong, Bluefood and A-Force peddling their sonic wares along with various MCs.
Prince Kong’s ‘Proper Horror Show’ on 2 x 12 inch vinyl will be the label’s first release and expect much of the material from this release to feature in Kong’s set.
Dublin based Ghetto Quietly will concentrate on limited runs of vinyl for local artists… thus far: Prince Kong, Bluefood and A-Force. Expect GQ vinyls to coincide roughly with MMR digital download releases for these Irish artists.
Perhaps not so much a sister label as a bastard cousin.. the one your Mom never wanted you to hang out with as they were from the wrong side of the tracks!
Our man Prince Kong has a free track to download on top music site indiefeed.com.
‘Outside’ is from the ‘Proper Horror Show’ ep and features the vocals of MC’s Tommy Trouble and Jammys Studio (Jamaica) originator – Eccleton Jarrett… available now from all good online retailers via IODA distribution
“Apparently Dublin isn’t just for world-beating, middle-aged arena rockers anymore. It’s also the province of Prince Kong, who has done more for dance music in just these first eight months of 2009 than Moby has managed in the last decade. Mixing grime, dubstep, ragga, house, and more, Proper Horror Show comes blasting out at you with a danceability so relentless it’s bound to wind up being at the center of a few restraining orders before all is said and done.”

Enlisting the vocal talents of a barrage of MC’s (Lady Grew, Eccleton Jarrett, Jah Balance, MC Rodrigo, Tommy Trouble, Commandante Krakken) – the Kong sound is developing at a fast pace and heading straight towards filling, and consequently destroying, the ghetto-tech dancefloor.
