Waking from the meditation, your eyes open. A big breath in, a big breath out. You hold your hand high above your head and *CRACK* it slices through the timber. Watermelon Boy returns with another tropical club classic. This time teaming up Kingston’s Richie Loop and Jamaican-American Mark Dwyer for the martial arts motiffed Break That Board.
A percussive, twerky rhythm peppered with 90’s fighting game sound FX. Richie Loop’s distinctive vocals are familiar from his collaborations with Hardwell, Timmy Trumpet, Henry Fong, Steve Aoki, Vybz Kartel & Sean Paul. He adds a ripe dancehall flavour to the tune and enacts chorus with the proficiency of a 5th dan black belt. Emerging rapper Mark Dwyer burst into the second verse with a 12 hit combo that shuffles like Ali’s footwork. Combining his passions of tropical sounds, martial arts and vintage gaming, Break That Board is Watermelon Boy’s most personal work yet. A track to motivate, inspire & elate. Break That Board is out Today! (4th of November 2022).
