Tomawok - Eek A Wok

French deejay Tomawok is known for his speed rapping style and his gift to combine several styles into a pleasant and danceable rub-a-dub/raggamuffin style. His latest feat is the EP “Eek A Wok”, a nod to the legendary toaster Eek A Mouse, who had his best moments at the end of the ’70s and early ’80s.

eek A Mouse

The six track EP sees him decreasing his rapping speed as he revisits some of Eek A Mouse’s tunes….in French! The first three tunes evoke nice memories. “Ganja City” is an upscaled and accelerated lick of the mouse’s “Assassinator”. Love Tomawok’s version! “Wa Do Dem” is a timeless Eek A Mouse anthem, Tomawok reworks it with ease and effortlessly inserts a few snippets of “Pass The Kouchie”. Third Eek A Mouse reworking is “Pneumostory”. Not 100% sure about this one, but we figure that this tune runs across a lesser known Eek A Mouse tune called “Neutron Bomb”.

Combination & Remix

The lethal combination with Junior Cat delivers “Ever Ready”, a tune that fires from start to finish! And its the only song in English! Finally two tunes across the King Kong riddim, a digital styled piece of music. First the vocal remix where he displays his fast paced rapping style and the instrumental cut rounds it off.
