Not that Hype Williams, silly chops. Everysod who’s seen a music videogram knows who he be.

This Hype Williams are a duo, from what I’ve been able to glean from infinitely more up to date berks than I. They’re spearheading a new movement known as Mongfug*, which is all about slightly queasy Jam-style disquiet putting the creeps up otherwise quite accessible little emissions.

They were part of the The Guardian/SoundCloud thing yesterday, which was designed either to “turn you on” to good new music or “make you feel” “hopelessly” “out of” “touch”.

Now, before you go hoping for anything nostril-shittingly original, you should know this number – called “The Throning” – samplifies Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo” (I wonder what Glamma Kid‘s up to now?). But Hype Williams change it from – well, you know what Sade’s about (notwithstanding recent rebranding efforts) – into something a bit more like… sweet aural influenza?

You can see what I mean, can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you? Can’t you?

Apparently they’re doing some kind of art happening at a placed called Space later this month, so it might be interesting to see what kind of people show up. They’ll probably all be ever so “chill”.

Hear more Hype Williams at their MySpace, which has got pictures of what appears to be a man holding branches of “Khat” amongst its gallery of images. Have you ever chewed Khat? How did it leave you feline?

*made it up.

Have your say!
