MC Chickaboo, the award winning UK's number one female MC teams up with The Str8jackets following collaborations with Timo Maas and Rennie Pilgrem for an insane Urban Dance, hip-hop hybrid sound that is already causing havoc in the clubs and on the blogs due to the killer new single 'Move & Rock'. Effortlessly crossing genres 'Move & Rock' is smashing up all clubs from the legendary Space Terrace in Ibiza to the UK Funky floors of Twice As Nice and is already building into THE summer anthem!
Scottie B (Twice As Nice) "Move & Rock!!! I like that!! That works for me :-)"
Jonathan Ulysses (Space) 'Mate. I love this tune.... 9/10 for its funky feel and the production is great.'
MC Chickaboo, started out in 1992 MC'ing at the now legendary Fantasia, Dreamscape and Jungle Fever raves alongside some of the best DJs around, including DJ Dazee, DJ Craze, Jumpin Jack Frost, DJ Storm, DJ Bailey, Goldie and the legendary Afrika Bambaata. Chickaboo then exploded into the BreakBeat scene and before long was working with and performing alongside the likes of Timo Maas, Rennie Pilgrem, General Midi, Suda (Faithless), Prodigy and SuperStyle Deluxe and in fact became the lead vocalist for Rennie Pilgrem's band TCR Allstars. In fact it was with Rennie and BLIM that MC Chickaboo won the 'Best Song' at Breakspoll 2006 for '2 Freaks' and even more impressively her massive collaboration with collaboration with Timo Maas 'Shifter' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KgwBR62Kds) hit number 1 in the MTV UK Charts and USA No 1 Billboard charts. MC Chickaboo currently runs her own party Tatty Bogle which took over from her Batty Bass parties in East London, a funky party which delivers equal measures of funk and craziness!
