To be honest, I wasn't totally happy with the music on Style Wars, it was too similar to PE's "Public Enemy Number 1", but those are the compromises I had to make as a co-producer. Nevertheless, I wasn't bothered because I was utterly convinced that the Rapping and Scratching were what made that track a winner.
Hold No Hostage was your first solo production and led to a whole wave of similar recordings, was it your definite intention to increase the BPM and create a track of this pace? Yes, I used speed as the main ingredients for creating an intense hardcore atmosphere in my music. I think about music the same way that a composer writes movie scores to capture moods. I did not increase the BPMs intentionally instead I tried to capture my feelings at that moment i. It just so happens that BPM seemed to capture all that perfectly.
Haha, It sounds corny and immature now but we just wanted to serve everyone and I tried to represent this in the music. I think everyone got the picture! I remember at the time that all my mates thought it were wicked where you scratched up the high-pitched sample of the word Hijack. Haha, that's funny, it was all discovered by mistake! What's even funnier is amidst the other more complex scratches that were done it's the simplest and least challenging ones that people remember.
Ice T then got to hear the track when he was guesting on a radio show, when did you first hear that he was interested in signing you to Rhyme Syndicate? Had you met him before?
The night that radio show aired, I got a phone call from a friend to tell me Ice T was going crazy about Hijack and the Hold No Hostage single. The following evening I was sitting in the WAG club having a drink with him. He was all about business and wasted no time in propositioning us with a contract on his Rhyme Syndicate Records.
I had not met Ice before but I later grew to know him during the several shows we did on the road. I find him to be a real genuine character, I still have much respect for him. No doubts what so ever. I mean, the label was being managed by Ice T, a Hip Hop veteran whom by then was a leading force in rap music industry, he had power.
Rhyme Syndicate were not the problem, it was their collapse and our subsequent move to Warner Brothers that I had doubts about. The terrorist group image spontaneously grew out of the name Hijack, coined by DJ Undercover. We simply incorporated the imagery associated with rebel forces, airplane hijackers and terrorist as seen in the newspaper and movies. Although I never caught Hijack live, I remember when you were performing Syndicate Outta Jail on Dance Energy and there was a bit of theatrics going on, was this a regular occurrence with a Hijack concert?
Yes, this was a regular feature of our show. We had learnt very early on that some carefully thought out acting and action sequences would leave a lasting impression with the audience. What wasn't shown in that particular TV show was the use of firearms, this wasn't allowed for obvious reasons. We normally used blank guns to act out on stage shootouts with blood capsules and everything.
Another thing about that TV show was that my brother stood in for me on the turntables that day as I had an urgent engagement elsewhere.
I think he did a pretty good job faking it though - haha. Yes, It entered the top When I was told about this I remember thinking that "we've crossed over". I find that flattering. We decided to do a remix of Style Wars as a stopgap while Warner Brothers were figuring out what to do with the Horns of Jerico album. We wanted to let people know that we were still around and haven't gone anywhere.
If Warner's released our album when they were suppose to we never would have done that remix for Music of Life. I would have never entertained such a question back in the day but since I've buried my battle axes long ago I can confess that I rated the Demon Boyz, London Posse and Hardnoise. These crews were as innovative as Hijack and if not for the silent competition that raged between us, I doubt that UK hip-hop would have reached the heights that it did.
For these crews I still carry much admiration and respect. When The Horns of Jericho finally arrived, I remember clearly thinking at the time that you would now crack America, was this your anticipation also? How realistic was this view? I think we would have made a few ripples on the US scene if Rhyme Syndicate Records had not been dissolved and we got the proper backing but that never happened.
We knew Warner Brothers gave no release date for the album in the US well in advance so we weren't under any illusions as to what was going to happen, realistically. S release? I'm sure he did have influence with Warners, but not enough for them to invest thousands of dollars on something that the US where not ready for. You got to remember that there was nothing out there that sounded remotely like us, it was totally alien to them, they couldn't pigeon hole it, they just didn't know how to sell it.
Did you get any reaction from America in relation to either your live performing or your tracks? I found out that our material got around on the underground hip hop scene in a big way. It's weird because I had always heard about this back in the day but never paid it any mind, as far as I was concerned it was a rumor. He told me he was a great fan of Hijack, that the scratching was way ahead of its time and how it had a major influence on him.
Haha, after almost 18 years of perfecting the cut, there I was invited to share the stage with the worlds best DJs! This was one of my proudest moments. I've been told I appear in the Scratchcon video too. I guess someone on-high decided to push the album in Europe where there was already a market for us and not invest any capital in promoting us in the US.
The usual major label bullshit! On 'Back to Brixton', Chuck D is mentioned as giving advice to yourselves and I got the impression at the time that Public Enemy were very enthusiastic about the U.
K scene, did U. S groups like this do enough to help you and other UK groups to gain more success, particularly in America? No, US groups did not do enough, but then why should they? Hip Hop is not a charity business. I believe you will always find your way through once you can prove you can stand on your own two feet as an artists.
Right now UK hip hop hasn't got a leg to stand on and no ones going to hand out wheel chairs to support it. None what so ever, we were in total control. In fact he loved the music and even wanted that I produce for him, we just never got round to it. You then left Hijack after disagreements over your future. You've said that Kamanchi Sly and Undercover wanted to conform to what the U.
S market dictated, can you clarify this further? Yes, I had said earlier that Warner Brother's did not release our album in the US for economic reasons. When this happened it was pretty clear to us that Warner's believed our unique brand of hip hop would not sell in the US. The realisation of this affected everyone in different ways. My feeling was we got this far being unique it's just a matter of time before the US caught on and if not, who needs them. K Sly and Undercover were of the opinion that we needed the US market and if our music was a problem then we should adapt.
In other words 'jump on the US band wagon'. They were adamant that this was the only way forward for Hijack but compromising was something I was not willing to do - this basically brought about the end. My favorite track is 'Hold No hostage'. I always thought Back to Brixton was one of the best cuts on the album.
Why don't you like it? It's not the best rock loop that was used, there was much harder stuff but Hijack (2) - The Horns Of Jericho (CD) just didn't make the final album track list.
In between leaving Hijack and forming Backbone Records, what did you get upto? There is a house DJ called Supreme who has released stuff, are you one and the same?
I did not make this DJ Supreme house track. Apparently, when I left the group they replaced me with someone else with the same name and made their move into dance music. It's a bit low replacing you with someone of the same name, I take it that the split with Hijack was not totally amicable?
I guess those guys were generally not pleased because they probably knew when I left the Hijack sound would come with me. And I wasn't happy because I realised I had nothing in common with them anymore. I know that the record was released without your permission leading to solicitors getting involved, what happened there? Not wanting to get into all the details, my lawyers got involved and the record label responsible for releasing the single agreed to stop pressing that record.
A lot of b-boys are up in arms at Kamanchi Sly going from one of the hip hop scenes most respected MC's to dropping very basic cliched lyrics on a very poppy tune, what is your take on that?
I can't comment much because I don't know their material. I've been living outside England for some time now so I've evaded that whole garage scene thank god! My thoughts on K Sly moving from b-boy to garage-dude-whatamacallit, Hijack (2) - The Horns Of Jericho (CD), I'm not surprised, he was always looking for a new direction.
I can understand how the b-boys feel with the blatant hypocrisy of the MC that wrote "money ain't the matter it's the principal that makes us invincible". But hey, who are we to judge - every man is at liberty to choose how he makes his bread and butter no matter how stink it may look to the rest of us.
I think the tune has just hit Hijack (2) - The Horns Of Jericho (CD) one in the charts and they've been performing on all sorts of prime time television. I'm not bothered that he's gone into Garage but the lyrics are truly awful.
