Reks

Reks

Reks is an emcee who needs no introduction. Or does he? As a Hip Hop head, I would personally consider you to be asleep if you had overlooked his 2008 joint Say Goodnight and the phenomenal 25th Hour, both Premo bangers. But Reks has been a key player in the evolution of Boston Hip Hop and the global underground scene generally and has made several albums. He has just released his seventh album Revolution Cocktail.

Benny Diction and Able8 - Life Moves LP [Boom Bap Professionals]

Benny Diction and Able8 – Life Moves LP [Boom Bap Professionals]

'Life Moves' is the brainchild of prominent London-based MC Benny Diction and prolific Australian beats producer Able8. The two met at a Melbourne hip-hop night in 2011 and have been working together since. Both established artists in their own right, they have combined to turn hip-hop on its head and create something that stands out from the usual format. Able8's signature sound combines the world of dusty vinyl samples with heavy bass-laden electronic sounds and swinging drums, providing the perfect backdrop for Benny to paint his intricate, tightly-woven rhymes. The result is an exciting mix of classic hip-hop with a futuristic, off-kilter sound.
