About Top Buzz
DJ Mikee B, DJ Jason Kaye, and MC Patrick Jarrett, sometimes known as “Mad P,” created Top Buzz in 1988. They are all residents of north London, and many of them are from the cities of Tottenham and Enfield.
They were among the first to adopt jungle techno’s more abrasive sounds when it emerged in 1991 from hardcore rave noises. This fashion was influenced by the rave music of the time. 1992 saw the release of the band’s “Livin’ in Darkness” EP on Basement Records.
This record does a great job of capturing the vibe of the time. They were featured at many clubs’ special events, including Amnesia House, Fantazia, Universe, Dreamscape, and Obsession. MC Patrick’s Jamaican dancehall-inspired ragga MCing was one of the band’s defining characteristics.
