Code Switchin'

Def Pressé
8.0
"No forgetting we at war/we in the trench" — an odd combo between house DJ ThatManMonkz and Malik Ameer, an established MC/producer in the experimental rap/jazz scene in both Cali and NYC. Odd combo but it works beautifully — not a trace of house here, just tight and heavy modal-jazz grooves akin to a vintage D.I.T.C production, and fascinating whorls of mind-lint from Ameer sandwiched between a raucous Outkast-style hook. Fingers crossed that this isn't a one-off hook-up and that an album will soon follow cos 'Code Switchin' works a charm.
