- Artist: Beyond Modern
- Track: Facedown
- Producer: Sur Jazz
- Album: Distorted Reality
Mick Marx and Sur Jazz of Booth-newcoming crew Beyond Modern don't just aspire to be hip-hop stars; on their latest single, making its world premiere along with 1st Impressions's risqué visuals, they also lay claim to the title of sex symbols. A classic 2 Live Crew sample (“Facedown, ass-up!”) set the tone for Marx's relentlessly freaky verses, delivered over his partner's grainy synth-bass and thundering percussion. So, Booth readers, was it good for you? Those who answer to the affirmative should watch our pages for the latest on Beyond Modern's Distorted Reality LP, scheduled for independent release before the year is out.
