Supathugz and Da Jamz So Hot it Hertz (J-Sonic) Supathugz and Da Jamz say they're aiming for a musical mutiny, overturning Canto-pop's reign, starting from the underground up. Their hybrid of hip-hop and R&B ballads, with guest vocals from the likes of Jessica, Kenn, MC Yan and Ella Koon, aims to 'drop a bomb' on the Asian music scene. Taking a style of music born on the streets of the US and delivering it to the Hong Kong public has been the mission of many artists in recent years. MC Jin is perhaps the best-known Chinese rapper, yet he conveys his messages in English and is quite well known in the US. Unfortunately, So Hot It Hertz fails to deliver what it promised. Despite enlisting Kenn to sing vocals on 2 Love, the result is reminiscent of something Prince might have done in his hey day (albeit with a hip-hop undertone). Hanjin is better known for his time as Edison Chen's album producer, yet R24 falls short of what it aims for. The end result sounds like a Nelly cast-off. This album is a difficult pill to swallow. The vocals sound too forced in Cantonese and Putonghua. The French have mastered how to deliver hip-hop in their own way, but you can't help but feel that Supathugz are concentrating too much on how the vocals fit with the beats. No two tracks really sound the same, which is always refreshing when it comes to hip-hop. But good mixing isn't enough. All the ingredients have to work together in order to bake the best cake. In this case, the souffle has come out of the oven rather flat.
