Still going strong since 1989, one of the UK's most long-lived duos, Krispy, are back! Microphone D.O.N. and Mr. Wiz have been consistently releasing powerful, honest hip-hop for the past nine years. Beginning in 1989 with "Comin Thru Clear" Krispy have trademarked and built on their own original sound, bringing over 15 releases to the table; including 3 EP's, 1 full length album and numerous singles. Their constant presence in the U.K. and European markets has brought much success since the earliest days; with constant radio play across the board, including specially recorded Radio 1 Sessions, tours of the U.K. with groups such as Naughty By Nature and headlining their own jams across Germany, Austria, Switzerland and appearances in Paris & Edinburgh. Tracks such as "Destroy All The Stereotypes" (91), "On Tempo" (94) and "Takin It Easy" (95) have sold thousands of copies and won respect for the group from an incredibly diverse audience, allowing their sound to cross easily from the street level todaytime airplay without compromising. After contributing the joint "Raised In Rhythm" to the 97 compilation "Bomb Worldwide", Bomb Hip-Hop Records signed the group and the long awaited second LP "From The Country" will be available from the San Francisco based label in February of 99. This will be Krispy's much anticipated American debut. The album has all the hallmarks of another classic Krispy collaboration, continuing the familiar fat beats and down-to-earth lyrical attitude with a harder 99 edge. Boasting guest appearances from Roots Manuva and I.G. Culture's One Drop Click, amongst others, this project has something for everyone whether it's laid back, uptempo, dealing with serious issues or just dropping styles, "From The Country" should satisfy even the most hardened critic.
