Kela and Mr Thing - Antistatic Mouthwash Mixtape (Jazz Fudge, 2000)


Vadim, Kela and Mr Thing in the house

What do get when you mix a Pervert, a bottle of Listerine, a mic, two turntables, a TDK and a dude who can imitate a drum with his tonsils? You get another really fucking sick mixtape put out on Jazz Fudge records is what!

Will cost you £20ish
Antistatic Mouthwash is the second tape Jazz Fudge released two years after the awesome Architects of the Great mix that DJ Vadim dropped alongside Mr Thing's fellow Scratch Pervert, DJ Primecuts. But whereas A.O.T.G. was the kind of triphoppy experimental kind of stuff you would expect from the loopy Russian label head at the time, Antistatic Mouthwash is straight up, old fashioned banging hip hop, breaks, scratch routines and vocal beats from beginning to end.

And how did it all come together? Well the year was 2000 and at that time the DMC Championships still meant something! It was a time when Deejays still had to actually have skills and a vinyl record collection. Mr Thing was flying high off the back off the Scratch Perverts 1999 win of the DMC Team World Championships and solidified his position as the nations number one by taking the UK crown a year later. The Pervs were in heavy demand and were popping up just about everywhere. In an effort to make the most of their brand they decided to expand - briefly lending their name to some of the most promising young talent in the UK Hip Hop scene in the process.

Perverts - Harry Love and Mr Thing
Whereas the Perverts had been knocking around since '96, in the late '90s the man from the Fruit Pastels ad was only just starting to make moves on a grander scale. He was spending these his formative years knocking around with Koaste and the 360 Physicals crew performing at various nights all over the south of England in the late '90s. The crew was massive and would regularly have a presence at the open mics and dominate the centre of breaking circles and cyphers at the Brighton nights I went to as a fake id rocking under-ager. Initially performing as a rapper, Kela was just another one of them but then he started beatboxing Jeru's Come Clean pretty much to perfection, and people started to take notice. He spent the last years of the '90s hosting nights and making contacts and gaining a reputation as a supremely talented beatboxer.

Kela Comes Clean
Around the turn of the new Millennium this lead to him hooking up with the Scratch Perverts to become part of an extended crew that included Harry Love, Prime Cuts and Plus One - none of whom where original members of the collective. This was also to be the year that his recording career kicked off - linking with Vadim and dropping his first ever 12" record (Crop Circles on Jazz Fudge). But first came this little excursion onto tape on the same label alongside original Scratch Pervert, Mr Thing - the rest, as they say, is history! Kick back and enjoy the next 60 minutes of magic - it took me right back to my youth no doubt!
