'at first inspection i fear croakinglizard reeks of no shoes dj sets, sandalwood burners on the bassbin, dole queue to record store bike riders. the crew is unsoundbwoy, sock monster and foundation stepper and if my evaluation of the site has any truth, then i am some middle class stuck up wanker. i am totally hooked on their interpretation of underground. unsoundbwoy is the best new school name since bongmist and they publicly use the term 'break-core' and 'ragga-core' to promote their sound. damn... its been ten years time to bring breakcore back. the mixes on the site are AAA, they use humour to manage the crazy world of DJing and egos and have summed up a real change in dub structures. they are the flipside to the meth'd out drum'n'bass thug step movements'

unsoundbwoy has been skirting the edges of Melbourne, Australia's and the world's jungle. breakcore and dancehall scenes since the early 2000s. His DJ and Live sets are high energy affairs where frenetic breaks, screaming synths and rolling riddims get tied together with a touch of humour. His original productions and remixes feature on Australian and International hip hop, jungle and breakcore labels.
The Sock Monster is a rare, turntable wielding creature from the outback of Australia. His unique mashed up style serves up toxic dancehall, dub bass and ragga toasts with a healthy dollop of broke beats. The Sock Monster has been represented on the website of the legendary Mashit jungle label. He's been known to galavant with the creepy old Russian which known as Baba Yaga, who rides around in a mortar and pestle, has a hut on chicken legs, and iron teeth.
wanklerotaryengine aka 3re is a more recent addition to the croakinglizard family. Taking his inspiration from the streets of Sao Paulo and Soweto as much as the dancehalls of Jamaica and jungle raves and packing 3re brings a truly outernational sound to his produciton and djing
