This London, England-based hip-hop trio comprised producer Ace Shazamme and rappers 0026 and the Phantom. Formed in the early 90s, their central appeal was the intoxicating beats and rhythms designed by Shazamme, including both 70s funk grooves and samples drawn from television and radio as well as the Doors. However, for many critics this served as scant compensation for misogynist lyrics conveyed by the group’s MCs. Signed by emergent London rap label Kold Sweat, they released their debut album, A Measure Of Force, in 1994.
