After 17 years as producer and MC of the Austrian HipHop legends TEXTA, FLIP finally comes around with his solo album called "Umberto Ghetto". FLIP is Umberto Ghetto, an alter ego, first used for the album "Die Unsichtbaren" (for those who know). The peculiar title stands for the hip hop socialization of FLIP, where "Umberto" stands for the European, philosophical element and "ghetto" for the roots of hip-hop as street culture, that originated in the devastated ruins of the South Bronx in the 70s. "Umberto Ghetto" stands for plain rap. Rap in its most diverse forms and styles. Expressive, uncompromising, oscillating in all directions, dazzling, wordplay and flow in its purest form.
In every seconds of the 17 songs (on vinyl 18), you must recognize Flips long experience and superior serenity on the mic, the MPC and the 1210s. "Umberto Ghetto" is, what classic rap music should be: outstanding beats, clever lyrics, great musicality and variety...
