The Young Punx return for their second studio album, a startling and inventive exploration of the deliberate destruction of genre boundaries in electronic music. Probably the first album in history to have toyed with drum and bass, heavy metal, electropop and cuban timba within the first 5 minutes (!) “Mashpop and Punkstep” is a vibrant manifesto for the next generation of mashup music. Featuring the epic collaboration with Memphis hip hop Don ‘Count Bass D’ – “Ready For the Fight” (already heard as the theme music for EA Games “Fight Night 4″ and as official entry music for world middleweight champion Arthur Abraham), the J-pop electro disco of SugarCandySuperNova and the Ragga House of “Juice and Gin” the album spans Puccini Opera, Punk rock, hip hop, synth pop, Japanese rock and much more…

“[The Young Punx are...] jubilantly shredding genre boundaries, swooping like crack crazed Magpies to grab their favourite shiny bits with maniacal gusto” – Clash Magazine

(Availability note – though you can buy it on import now from Amazon etc, full release in the USA, Germanic countries, Japan and Australia will roll out over the late spring/early summer)

The Young Punx, a collective of musical miscreants, led by maverick multi-instrumentalist Hal Ritson, have been steadily building a name for themselves over the past couple of years. With remixes for the likes of Autocrats and Mighty Dubcats under their belt, 2010 will see the release of their new album ‘Mashpop & Punkstep’, but ahead of that they’ve pulled together a tasty little Remix EP to whet the appetite…

Heading the EP is Black Noise’s electro crack house take on ‘Ready For The Fight’, which sees the south coast trio throw a heap of Mr Oizo-esque sub bass and beats at the already heavy Count Bass D collaboration. Scene veteran Shinichi Osawa steps up to the plate next turning the guitar driven ‘Rockstar (Understand)’ into a bleep-laden vehicle, destined for the dancefloor.

House man of the moment Riva Starr gives ‘Juice & Gin’ a techy makeover in his own inimitable style, plundering the best synths to create another messy dancefloor affair. Rounding things up is a double hitter of re-workings of ‘MashitUp’ the single released earlier this year to DJ and dancefloor acclaim. Kam Denny takes the electro-pop of the original, adds a tougher edge and builds to a climax which will leave you in no doubt as to how he’s cemented his position as one of Australia’s finest producers and remixers. Fellow Ozzie and young upstart Junior Black completes the set with a vocal-introed mash-up (for want of a better word) punctuated with synths and beeps in all the right places.

With their second longplayer due for imminent release and a double a-side single package coming soon, The Young Punx are now making moves up the ladder and are sure to be coming to a radio station, dancefloor or live venue near you soon…

MofoHifi Records is proud to announce 2 mixes of their infectious ragga house party anthem “Juice and Gin” as part of the early club promo for their forthcoming 2nd album “Mashpop and Punkstep”.

Featuring vocals from Bristol’s Yolanda Quartey (who also sang on their 2007 track “You’ve got to…”) the track has already received early support from the likes of David Guetta, BBC Radio 1 (In new DJs we trust), Loose Cannons on Kiss FM and Jason Nevins

The ‘1.5 club mix’ is the original Young Punx demo of the track, taken from The Young Punx Japan–only mini album “1.5”.

Meanwhile on remix duties one of The Young Punx’s favourite producers of the moment, Southern Fried’s Riva Starr, retools the track as an infectious fidgety banger blending Yolanda’s party shouts with his trademark electro rave groove.

The album “Mashpop and punkstep” will be released during 2009 and also includes collaborations with US rappers MC Paul Barman and Count Bass D, including the awesome “Ready for the fight” which has already been featured on several computer games and TV shows including the US coverage of the Superbowl, prior to release.
