Awol One & Daddy Kev - Slanguage, CD

$ 10.00 USD $ 14.98 USD







Awol One and Daddy Kev are back together to follow up the underground hits, 'Souldoubt' (Mean Street) and 'Number 3 on the Phone' (Records Broken) with 'Slanguage' - hiphop's take on free jazz. Daddy Kev has crafted a fifty-minute soundscape using minor-keyed pianos, brushed drums, stand-up bass, and jazz guitars over methodically programmed beats and the virtuoso turntable manipulation of D-Styles. Awol One's lyrics are genius in their simplicity, yet hide double meanings and depth rarely found in hiphop, and his voice remains one of the most recognizable in the business. Movements interweave without constraint, tracks start, stop, then start again, and the line between full vocal track, instrumental, and interlude is blurred beyond recognition.
