Blackanized are a couple of blokes originally from Wolverhampton but
who now stay in Edinburgh. They used to be in the rap band Zulu
Syndicate featuring ex-members of punk band the Exploited before going
on to record a tracks as MF Outanational (see Mo Wax's Headz
compilation for the only released track that I know off). They then
got signed to the Stereo MCs Natural Response label (see for details) where they released a couple
of singles and a compilation of Edinburgh acts called 'The East Coast
Project'. They've recently released a new EP on their own Yush
Produsction label featuring MC Mello and Awunsoundz. If anyone finds
themselves in Edinburgh you can find Joseph from the band djing at
their 'Lizard Lounge' club where the band occasionally plays live.
