Out today through recently relaunched label New Dawn Records, the new single “Smoke Filled Rooms” b/w “Skitzophonetic” by hip hop crew Belles in Monica.
Already on international rotation, “Smoke Filled Rooms” mixes electronica, turntablism and South Asian flavas to journey into the dark underbelly of the inner city with rhymes depicting a vision of drug squalor hell, while the booming kicks and soaring strings of “Skitzophonetic” provides the dramatic backdrop for a verbal tirade against generic conformity. Bonus cut “That All U Got?” invokes the spirit of Ali & Foreman leaving industry machinations slumped in the corner, towel thrown. The art of storytelling has returned on a release spanning all eras.
Taken from the “Natsukashii EP” out June 7th, the second in their ‘Lazarus’ series following April’s “Y’All in Meltdown EP”.
Released today by New Dawn Records, Underground Cartel’s “Sapientia EP” is the definition of international hip hop.
Produced by Kruze as a showcase for independent male and female artists from the USA, UK, Europe and Africa, the concept is represented in its truest form as all perform in their native tongues.
Stateside there’s coast to coast representation courtesy of Swiss Precise (KBH crew Long Beach), Sacramento’s Crazy Ballhead, Midwest rapper Brandon J Atlas, Boston’s Yukonn MC, Black Market from Virginia, Tone Rome of Baltimore’s Raw Dialect crew and Brooklyn’s female MC Lockness.
London’s Creamo and UK Rapstation host Mr CRF are joined by Zimbabwean Dumi Right, with a heavy European contingent in the form of Madrid’s El Meswy, Beni Blanco from French crew “Originaire du Sud”, German rapper Grizu, Croatia’s Magellano and Dutchman Bleek Wonder. The Italian scene has double representation in the shape of female lyricist Marya and the late, great Primo Brown from legendary crew Cor Veleno.
All stand shoulder to shoulder trading bars which move seamlessly through each track and territory. The result is a fresh, eclectic and extremely rare mix of rhymes, beats and turntablism, essential listening for the global hip hop connoisseur.
