Strange U is the collaborative effort between Kashmere and producer Dr Zygote and they are back with dark beats and mocking lyrics. Strange U is an original and almost counter formation that might be needed in the mainly one-sided temporary hip-hop industry. With this new EP they deliver raw beats combined with assertive raps and maintain the same message throughout the whole record. Have a listen for your own here below.
The new release of Strange U is a brew of raw beats and raps. Eglo Records is being a bit mysterious about this duo. They didn’t reveal much info about their identity, but after some googling we found out we are dealing with the beatsmith Dr Zygote and Kashmere Iguana. Last year a few spooky video’s appeared on youtube. Today this video, directed by Alexander Nut, dropped for the track ‘Klaatu Barada Nikto’. For now the EP is only available on vinyl, but the digital version will follow soon.
With this Ep, we found ourselves reminiscing about those good old days. Shungu takes us back with a dose of soulful beats. Raps featured are by the likes of Stanley Ipkuss, Fresh Daily, Jalal Salaam, Ivan Ave, Strangers Of Necessity and J’von.
Russian producer and label owner DZA teamed up with Kidkanevil for this ‘Kaiju‘ Ep. The Japanese word “Kaiju” literally means “strange beast” and is also used to refer to monster movies like Godzilla. This Ep is quite the beast. Kaiju beats is what they do and make Kidkanevil and DZA stand out. Both producers proof to be pretty familiar with making good use of your eardrums. The opening track ‘Scarecrow’ starts off with heavy bass drums and percussion samples to eventually be embraced by raw synth stabs. It immediately sets the tone.
