Da Flyy Hooligan is back on his GourmetDeluxxx label with another gourmet offering entitled Gourmet Trap. The track is produced by long-time collaborator Micall Parknsun and is the first track to be taken from the forthcoming LP Ben Kingsley which is set to drop today.
Hailing from Harlesden, North West London. Lamarrie Essquire aka Da Flyy Hooligan has proven himself to be a driving force of a new breed of emcees, spawning from what would seem a new and fresh look for London’s hip hop scene.
Working with Hip Hop royalty including the late Sean Price, Westside Gunn and Conway, Hus Kingpin, and more recently Planet Asia (Gold Chain Military / Cali Agents), one could say the game is definitely in good hands.
Gourmet Trap is testament to the envelope Hooli is willing to push with his style, love for minimalism, and cadence.
In this new Hip Hop renaissance, Da Flyy Hooligan has been championing the “Drumless Beat” style of production since 2009, and maybe even earlier. This time round via UK Hip Hop mainstay Micall Parknsun creating the sounds, Gourmet Trap is infused with a modern take on the genre, with an extra twist added via the overall flow.
Hooli thinks outside the box and delivers a fast paced “drill” inspired flow, with the usual upper echelon wordplay. Even with no drums you’ll still find yourself nodding to the rhythm of his flow, a true example of becoming an instrument.
This is a first taster into the new world of his soon to drop creative offering ‘Ben Kingsley’.
Alongside the original release of Gourmet Trap, there is also a drill remix version produced by Lewi B.
