|British breakbeat hardcore and jungle DJ/MC duo.
Top Buzz were originally formed in 1988 by , and DJ . All originate from areas in north London, Tottenham and Enfield respectively.
They were one of the first to popularise the darker sounds of jungle techno as it began to emerge from the hardcore rave sounds from 1991. The band released the Livin' in Darkness EP on Basement Records in 1992, which encapsulates much of the flavour of the era. They were headline performers at Amnesia House, Fantazia, Universe, Dreamscape and Obsession events, amongst many others.
A distinct feature was the ragga MCing of MC Patrick, strongly influenced by Jamaican dancehall. Patrick often referred to the team as "Two Blacks and a Bubble", a reference to their ethnic origins, with 'bubble' referring to Bubble and Squeak, the Cockney rhyming slang for Greek (Jason K is of Greek Cypriot descent).
MC Mad P and DJ Jason Kaye still perform at oldskool hardcore and jungle events across Britain.|
