News from my homies Lex, Parental & Le Makizar in Paris. After an incredible debut album in 2009 (about which I blogged back then) and a great instrumental 2LP by Lex de Kalhex called "Perfect Picture" from last year, they have been teaming up with "Grap Luva" and "Rob O" for their next and soon to come 12inch "Perspectives/La Fine Ligne" on Akromégalie Records.
Kalhex, Rob O & Grap Luva rhyming over the instrumentals of Lex and Parental. Rob O gets a nice laid back INI kind of treatment and Grap Luva rocks an uplifting boom bapish beat with nice layers that make only listening to the beat an odyssee. The record includes vocal, instrumental and (yeeeah, we like that!) also the acapellas (I always figured it being really sad, that this kind of early hip hop phenomenon stopped at some point). But that's not all. The record features two bonus beats by Parental and Le Makizar in addition to that and they also really hit my nerves. Heard them all and more of that ... and believe me; this one is going to be a must have aswell as the rest that seems to come in future! What else to expect from my favourite french producers on the mic. Enjoy! Support artists! Buy records! Originally blogged on "sirlensalot meets lens j"
I filmed a little something with my phone when I joined them for the mastering session last week - its a part of the bonus beat by Le Makizar.
