Modulok & Bare Beats 'Two Cities'

One path, different streets: this summarizes the new collaborative project between Modulok, the Toronto-based emcee most notorious for his work as one half of Red Ants, and Bare Beats, the London-based beatsmith and respected veteran of the British hip-hop scene whose trademark sound has become synonymous with the record label he fronts, Bare Records. Modulok's grime poet lyricism and brass knuckle flows have found a perfect home with Bare Beat's smoked out, jazz-tinged, head-snapping tracks, creating a sound that is dark, abrasive, and reminiscent of the classic east coast hip-hop of the early-mid 90s. Two Cities is tough, raw and unrefined - yet behind the murky atmosphere of broken glass and microphone battling is a thought-provoking exegesis on the plight of the individual trapped in the modern day city.

Track Listing :

1, Intro ft, Wireless
2, Happiness ft, Jabba Tha Kut
3, City ft, Apollo Creed & Jabba Tha Kut
4, Trouble ft, Perry Scaramanga, Kal Sereousz & Smokey
5, Grimy
6, Taste ft, Baracuda
7, Stories ft, Jabba Tha Kut
8, People ft, Jabba Tha Kut
9, Assassin
10, Origin

'Two Cities' Hangs together perfectly as a document of the current hip hip underground" K Mag

" is great to get a glimpse of the man behind the emcee, a feat which is made possible thanks in large part to the gloomy production of Bare Beats, who also deserves credit for his creativity and great sample choices." Thomas Quinlan

"Modulok and Bare Beats are concise and straight to the point in a way, let’s face it, most MCs can’t even silently wave a mic at." British Hip Hop

"With a good mix of dusty jazz, 50’s film suspense music and punchy drums Bare Beats creates a concrete foundation for Canadian MC Modulok." Certified Bangers

Ok here we have the debut LP from the SFDB veteren Clarity. After a 4 year hiatus uk rapper Clarity returns with his long antisipated debut LP the Propaganda Pulse.
