DUOTONE, "SERVE THAT PU$$Y (BOSTON BOUNCE REMIX)" (BEAT RESEARCH)Raunchy club music from Baltimore, Detroit, and Miami tends to be populated with imperatives to sexual assault — "Pop That Pussy," "Grind on Dat Booty" — but DJ C and DJ Flack, the lab techs at the experimental party-music lab Beat Research, flip the script by offering kinder, gentler sleaze: "You better learn how to lick that pussy tonight." Meanwhile, a custom-built, hopscotching riddim dubbed Boston beat allows them to stretch and squish the vocals — screwed down, then chipmunked up — without varying the bpm.
"Flack wrote those words originally as a kind of response to all the lyrics in hip-hop and dancehall about how they would never go down on a girl. Seemed kinda silly to us. Is that supposed to make you appealing to women, that you want them to go down on you, but you won't go down on them? Actually in Jamaican music it's sometimes about no oral sex at all. Kinda fundamentalist like. Anyway, the lyrics were written to counteract those ideas. We've been performing the tune for a few years in our acapella form. I beat-box and Flack rhymes. Just recently though we actually made a beat for it, so we can release it on Beat Research soon. It's scheduled to be the 3rd Beat Research 12" and will contain the original, the acapella, the instrumental, a beat-box version, and the 'Serve That Bouncy' mix. The Boston Bounce Vol. 1 EP will be the next release, and that will be out during the winter."
