This installment of Shockout's 12-inch series pits a dancehall MC of serious weight and lyrical force against innovative and capable electronic musicians. "Come Back Wicked" is a tuff bad-boy salute to vengeance and confrontation voiced by Jamaicanborn MC Wayne Lonesome (The Bug, Razor X). Music is provided by esteemed techno/electronica innovator Timeblind, known for his genre-defying releases on Orthlorng Musork, Drop Bass, Drop Beat, Mutek, Kanzleramt, Communique, and appearances on mix CDs by Laurent Garnier and Josh Wink. Timeblind's seminal "Rastabomba" was one of the first and best ragga-electronica hybrids. Along with the original new dancehall instrumental bonus track "What the...?" these Shockout mixes take things even further, delving into Babylonian abstraction while still swinging a funky Timbaland-on-supercollider beat. Also stepping up to the international soundclash scene are Ove-Naxx and DJ C. The prodigal find of Soot Records, Ove-Naxx pulls off a healthy cross between Aphex Twin and DJ /Rupture. Boston's DJ C (aka EOSS) is well known in the ragga jungle scene for running his own Mash It and Bliss labels, and for helping to found the Toneburst collective.
