John Safran's Music Jamboree - Choose One - Netflix
Choose One is the debut album from Australian hip hop group 1200 Techniques, released in June 2002. Produced entirely by band's founder, DJ Peril, the album features a mix of contemporary hip-hop, rock and electro. It peaked at No. 20 on the ARIA Albums Chart. AllMusic's Jody Macgregor rated it at three-and-a-half stars and explained “the group's guitarist Kemstar lays down a rock-solid rock riff. That unusual addition, a live rock guitarist in a hip-hop group, goes a long way towards individualizing the 1200 Techniques sound, adding an odd and sometimes surprisingly funky layer. Another thing that makes them unique is their unabashed Australian-ness.” The single, “Karma” (April 2002), samples elements of Hot Chocolate's “Brother Louie” and was featured on a “World Instruments” segment of John Safran's Music Jamboree. The track “Battlemaster” contains a widely used line from the hip hop film, Beat Street.
