Miniature Heroes are a three man Hip Hop crew hailing from Leeds, consisting of
DJ Baboon, Lay-Z Bones and Arro. They formed into a crew in early 2001 after a
couple of months of hooking up and have been performing in Leeds and elsewhere
on the regular ever since. They have been receiving rave reviews and after
listening to the demo you can see why.
"Heroes For Hire" is a purposely
under-produced, low budget single session with the Heroes and aims to capture
some of their strengths, which include beat box and strong freestyles. That it
certainly does and coming in at nearly twenty five minutes in duration it is
pure energy right from the start. Beatboxing from Lay-Z Bones is of a good
quality and is interspersed with choice instrumentals laid down by Baboon, such
as Primo's N 2 Gether Now, Harry Love's Its All Live, Mass Hysteria's Persevere,
Aspects' We Get Foul and the Lewis Parker produced Not Nice from Tommy Evans'
Four Horsemen 12. So you can see the quality these guys like to roll with and
their rhymes definitely live up to the quality of the beats they have chosen. It
is intended to spread the word and act as a promo to get more gigs in and
outside of Yorkshire.
The whole crew work together well keeping the
tempo and the vibe going throughout, so I would be looking to book them for sure
if I had a night to put on. Good on them for getting out there, even if they
don't have their own beats. They have the enthusiasm and humour to make it
happen. They are currently in the early stages of producing an EP and are
interested in hearing from any producers who are looking to get their beats
rhymed over. You heard it here first.
