The Champion Mushroom EP” is a romp of a record that truly captures what The Magic Fly sound is all about. Starting off things is Champion Mushroom, a monster dub-disco-breakbeat track that manages to source out original Jamaican deejay vocals and mash them into a hilarious Bill Hicks sample, all while keeping the dancefloor burning with it’s infectious bassline and driving beat. Following that up is Thinking Toy, a downtempo dub reggae cut that sounds like something the Upsetters could have cut in the early 70’s, with a retro futuristic vocal from a British documentary laid ontop of it.

To the flip, “Play That Funky Reggae” kicks things off with a very unusual female Russian robot vocal bit (You’ve really just got to hear it to understand) before bumping into a monster breakbeat cut with a catchy bleeping Kraftwerk melody, blasting drum break, looping percussion, and intersplicing vocodor and Toots and the Maytals samples. Next up is JStar’s remix of the forementioned tune, which takes things down a notch into screw-dub territory, a driving echo’d out track with melodica, chopped and slowed vocals, and a killer digikal bassline.
