“I Love Rap”, the hit single from the iPhone game B-Boy Beats (TAG Games / Mobile Pie) is available today! Id Obelus teamed up with super producer Ace Ha (from Maddwest fame) to create this banger. A lyrically playful disclaimer for Id’s love of rap music that many should be able to relate to. This maxi-single was mixed and mastered by the great Nomar Slevik and features a guest appearance by DJ Bizkid (Galapagos4 / milled pavement). It comes with alternate versions, instrumentals, and a’capella. Go get it to at least get your remix on!

Before the Hip Hop culture police arrest everyone involved in this… keep in mind, this is breakdancing with your fingers! Yet another testament of the never ending influence of hip hop culture on the world around us, no matter how morphed it may be.

B-BOY BEATS – FULL DETAILS REVEALED!
Underground Hip Hop soundtrack, innovative game-play and heaps of attitude…
DUNDEE, UK – 29th January 2010
Scottish iPhone publisher and developer Tag Games is today pleased to announce full details of its upcoming hip hop rhythm action game B-Boy Beats. Developed in partnership with Mobile Pie, a hugely talented studio based in the UK’s hip hop heartland of Bristol. B-Boy Beats aims to reinvent the stale rhythm action genre made popular on iPhone by titles such as Tap Tap and Rock Band.
Are you ready to party? B-Boy Beats is a unique, all action, hip hop rhythm game set in 1980’s New York City. As the lead member of a new break-dance crew looking to gain respect, you’ll need to learn the latest moves and battle other crews to claim new turf across various city locations.
Place your fingers on the screen and get ready to move! Simply tapping isn’t enough to succeed in B-Boy Beats. Players must hold their fingers on the screen – giving the feel of virtual legs moving across a virtual dance floor!!
Learn the latest dance moves in the fully interactive tutorial before heading out onto the city streets. There are 10 break-dance moves to learn with each one requiring ever greater skill, timing and confidence to pull off. You knew the city was a dangerous place when you left the safety of the suburbs but are you ready to be tested to the limit? There are 7 hardcore crews each breaking on their home turf to take on and ultimately beat down in your quest to be the best in the city.

B-Boy Beats features 17 dope tracks from the rising stars of underground Hip Hop. Led by Nerdcore and Penny Arcade favourite MC Frontalot the game also includes awesome tracks from Optimus Rhyme, Id Obelus, Ultraklystron, Rai and Magitek.
