QELD - 28 Draws Later 12" [Indie]

Fresh off the microphones and MPC comes the single '28 Draws Later' from Bristolian, left-wing Hip-Hop duo QELD. It's one hell of a hard-hitter, too: Soulful boom-bap mixed with sharp flows and lyrics that dip into Libertarian, Communist and Anarchist ideologies.

For starters, it's great to hear that rebellious and reactionary Hip-Hop is still alive and sincere-sounding on the underground scene ("Fucking Thatcherite cunts/ You guys are the reason/ I have to buy skunk"). Secondly, it's even better when a track manages to be reactionary and rebellious and actually have a point ("No pasaran/ But you’re eager to let 'em pass/ Grown ass man/ in a 'V for Vendetta' mask").

As well as the enemies of the right, the bars address the many posers, talkers and wannabe-bad men of the left who claim to make a difference. The main point here is the lack of decent activism, something of which '28 Draws Later' expresses a fair amount of scepticism towards and attacks with great ferociousness.
