ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After writing a collection of lyrics based on his political, social, personal beliefs and experiences, Anglo-Turkish rapper Aslan AK teamed up with producer and composer Mike F to form Class Actions. Class Actions mission is simple: produce accessible music which simultaneously incorporates a message against international injustice.

Class Actions are based around a combination of Aslan’s aggressive, fast paced rapping style (dubbed as 'Shout Rap'), attention grabbing live act and Mike F’s catchy backing tracks. The tracks creatively fuse house, electro, hip-hop, techno, drum n bass and even some reggae mixed with rock. The duo’s originality eventually led them to raise money to form a record label simply titled Class Actions.

2010 sees the release of the first ever Class Actions album ‘Keep Your Pride’. The album is a perfect mixture of up-tempo hook-orientated tracks like ‘Do You Feel Safe’ and ‘The Underdogs’, the sing-along satire of songs such as ‘Do As I Say’ and ‘M is 4 Maggie’ and the hard hitting social reality of the title track amongst others.

A follow up album will be released the following year and Class Actions are currently playing live nationally.

Note all lyrics and music copyright Class Actions 2006 - 2010.

Dance vs Political Hip Hop
Loving my dance music, I downloaded this album as it put a new and different spin on what your ordinary floor fillers offer. The mix of the political hip hop added to the amazing underlying dance harmonies makes the album leaving you wanting more. Favorites for me included Venom, Do you feel safe and Magic Man. Thankyou for something refreshingly different.

Floor fillers meet protest rap
This album is an eclectic balance between party / club tunes and angry politically charged hip hop. The first two tracks will fill any dance floor whilst ‘The Terrorist’ is razor sharp and effortlessly controversial. The diversity of styles will engage any listener making it a truly enjoyable album. More of the same please!!!!!

CLASS ACTIONS
Provocative seemingly effortless lyrics plus skilled musicality - energy reminiscent of the Sex Pistols and politically charged like Public Enemy. Could listen to 'Do you feeel safe?' all day! Where've they been all this time? Like the cover - brooding passion! Bursting with originality. When's the next album?

Politically Electric
From the opening song, the vocals hit you. Brash, brutal and in yer face!
“Do You Feel Safe?” is the question, and as the album progresses, this question becomes more and more apt.

Politically charged and aggressively delivered, the vocals talk out at both the personal and political environment of the artist, from estranged lovers to political figureheads – dearly departed (we can but hope!) Margaret Thatcher, to name but one. Many artists fail to reveal the raw emotions of the lyrics behind there songs, and this is one of the main strength’s of this album. It has the “feeling” behind it.

This is an album that needs to be heard. Full stop.

Political Dance Music
Although the album lyrics are in the style of Immortal Technique, Class Actions use house and techno beats (along with some hip hop) to get their political message across. Political dance music is an unusual idea but the album works very well. Highlights include 'M is 4 Maggie', 'Magic Man' and electro house anthem 'Do You Feel Safe?'. Dance music that makes you think is something refreshingly different.

Rap Dance is back!
Quality tracks, like a mash up between commercial and underground, really love Do You Feel Safe? and Underdogs, both make me wanna dance, the hard hitting stuff is ace too, such a variation across the album.
