Wait… what year is it? This latest release from Sichtexot Records may confuse your head a bit. Back To The Booom by Man of Booom sounds like something that might have come out in ’95, but with a subtle hint of futurism that indicates it could only have been created in recent years.
Trio Figub Brazlevič, Teknical Development and JuJu Rogers have clearly been busy studying their hip hop history. This album tribute to hip hop’s golden era is a stunning amalgamation of previous styles and trends in hip hop, carefully calculated and executed from a studio in Germany. The driving force and backbone of the LP is the insanely ill Figub Brazlevič production immersed in heavy percussion and layered echoing jazz samples.
Of course emcees JuJu Rogers and Teknical Development come correct like spell check, attacking each track with the hunger of undernourished wolverines. This is the type of ish to make you bust out a ghetto blaster, hoist it on your shoulder, and walk the block dropping freshness on peasants.
The album is available digitally, but the real attraction is the gatefold double LP that will come with a limited run of exclusive 7″ singles featuring 4 extra beats by Figub Brazlevič. This is one of the top releases of the year and a must have for any hip hop head or record collector so don’t sleep!
