Steve Austin - The Cyborg ChroniclesUprock Recordings
Uprock Recordings started back in 2000 with the merging of some serious heads. One of the seven original members is Steve Austin and here is his latest album. He has worked with some of the big names in hip hop, the broken beat scene, and is a regular MC and DJ at CO-OP, which has certainly given him a wealth of knowledge and experience. Steve has gone back to his roots and turned out an album which displays UK hiphop at its best. Even though there are some obvious samples used, especially in 'Rapper Have No Style', they are worked to perfection with Steve's lyrics, timing and production. Fans of Roots Manuva and TY need this.
