BRACE YO'SELF - YO MAJESTY RELEASE KRYPTONITE PUSSY EP

Yo! Majesty | 17/06/08

"This is about being real. Straight up. We believe in what’s just, what’s right, what’s real..." – Shunda K of YO! MAJESTY

It is with great pride that we announce the debut Domino release of Yo! Majesty.

The soon to be legendary Kryptonite Pussy EP will be available as a US import vinyl from Monday the 14th of July (out now for digital downloal) preceding the band's debut album Futuristically Speaking… Never Be Afraid, which will see the light of day in September.

For those new to Yo! Majesty, Jwl. B and Shunda K are 2 girls from Tampa Florida, on a mission to bring good times, good grooves and a message that will make you question your preconceptions of what hip hop should be. The first time you hear Yo! Majesty feels like being dunked naked in a Nordic ice hole as an adrenaline shot rushes through the system re-vitalising every inch of your body with sensation.

This EP's title track'‘Kryptonite Pussy' is classic Floridian electro, coming on like a female 2 Live Crew, but taking it to the next level. It’s proud as hell in its stance and a great call to arms for the growing Yo Army. 'Break Bread', produced by Ceri 'Sunship' Evans sees the girls get political over a deranged, minimalist, bashment beat. ‘Monkey’ sees the girls back on the floor in a sea of innuendo and jungle lust against the native electro rhythm of their home state. 'Hit It and Quit It' (featuring Plastic Little) has to be one of the most shockingly powerful odes to safe sex ever, if this does not make you stop and think about your actions it’s possible nothing will. And then there is 'Hey There Girl' a track simply designed to dance to.

The thing to re-iterate about all this music is that it is real, it pulls no punches, it is Jwl. B and Shunda K’s lives, thoughts, ideals, visions. None of the Kryptonite Pussy EP tracks are featured on the debut LP which we’ll tell you about another time, this is the missing link between last year’s Yo EP and ‘Futuristically Speaking….Never Be Afraid’. Brace yourself.

Yo Majesty's Kryptonite Pussy EP is now available as a digital download.
