Ramson Badbonez is the name of this artist. Ramson Badbonez. What Badbonez has for us is a semi-concept UK hip-hop 12”, in which he sort of assumes the role of the titular Silva Surfa. Among his rhymes he has the incredible boast “I’ll give it to you straight like Frankie Boyle”, which is worthy of note. On Boot Records.

- Silva Surfa by Ramson Badbonez
8/10 Mark Customer review, 23rd October 2015
Ramson Badbonez is a stalwart of British Hip Hop, he first appeared on the scene as a promising 14 year old, and has built his reputation from there. He often appears wearing a skeleton mask, looking like MF Doom who has died, been buried underground for a couple of thousand years and then resurrected by some villainous Hip Hop Witch Doctor to tread the stage again. If your after authentic underground Hip Hop then this guy eats, sleeps, smokes and bleeds it.
Silva Surfa is his 3rd long player and is a concept album based on the Marvel Comic Book Superhero 'The Silver Surfer'. It is also, interestingly, a follow up to the Kashmere 2010 LP Galaktus... which is a concept album about the Marvel Comic Book Supervillian Galactus. If you don't know.. Galactus is a God like Super Being that eats planets.. and The Silver Surfer serves Galactus by flying around space trying to find another planet for "him" to consume. Eventually he finds Earth and all sorts of things happen.. including (but not limited too) this record.
In his early days The Silver Sufer was bad news, if you met him you were God food, and this is a theme in this album.. all served up with a with a large dose of North London dirge, gritty street talk meshed with interplanetary high jinks. Ramson Badbonez is the Silver Surfer, taking up the role of the doom bringer. He is joined by a number of guests, Kashmere makes an appearance as Galactus on the excellent "Getdafucoutta Here" and Jehst pops up on "Warlords & Immortals".. there are also spots for Jam Baxter, Fliptrix and Micall Parknsun, all big names on the British Hip Hop circuit.
The music is well crafted, the beats are abrasive and dirty, inventive and original. It comes straight out of a North London gutter, you can sense the fried chicken grease and phone unlocking shop neon lights blinking away as Badbonez stalks the streets, hoody up, snarling with menace. Some of the word play is staggering as the MCs weave through talk of space, time, Chemistry and Physics all laced with Sci-Fi and comic book references. This is some serious MC'ing, and it never lets up... at times it is dizzying, the words packing a punch like a planet eating God.
This is underground Hip Hop at it's best. Uncompromising. Cerebral... and massively geeky. I am sold.
