Dr Syntax and Tom Caruana / A Slice of Fried Gold

You need to download this ASAP.

A whole album of tracks by Tom Caruana and Dr Syntax revolving around ‘Shaun Of The Dead’, ‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Spaced’ and ‘Scott Pilgrim’.

I am very flattered and excited by this audio explosion. I hope you dig it too.

YEEEAH BOOYYY! British hip hop stalwarts and long-time friends Dr Syntax and Tom Caruana have teamed up to bring you a concept album based around dialogue snippets from the work of legendary TV and film director Edgar Wright (of Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and Spaced fame).

After years of well-received releases, tours and collaborations (including songs with chart sensations Rizzle Kicks and Foreign Beggars), the newly-formed duo made the album after Wright himself got in touch with Caruana and gave him carte blanche to sample his work. The result is 14 tracks of quirky, funk-fuelled dopeness, featuring dazzling cameos from Leaf Dog (Four Owls/High Focus), Rebecca Stephens (formerly of The Pipettes), Don’t Flop! rap battle legend Enlish and newcomer Clev Cleverley. All that, plus the Cornetto from the shop. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

    Wow – that is some tribute. I wonder if 5 8 3 is on there somewhere? (just one bit I can think of off hand)
    You should tweet about that, now you’re back from your twitter sabbatical – let more people know!
