Seamus Ryan (AKA MC Esoteric) is a breakbeat producer and MC. He’s also a toy geek who makes really strange but amusing videos on Youtube, most of which feature vintage Mego and other action figures.
My favorite video is called “MC Esoteric vs. Gary Numan (General Zod)” and features Gary Numan’s brilliant “We Have a Technical” as the track’s backdrop. I love the samples, including (of course) Terrence Stamp’s General Zod.
It’s kind of hard to explain, but you can check it our yourself, above. If the video dosn’t play back properly, you can also visit Youtube to watch Esoteric slay them whacks and lay mad tracks on wax.
