Even though hip hop out of the UK is in the English language the accents can sometimes still come across so foreign to American audiences. But Emcee Teknical Developments alongside producer Hey!zeus really made it hard for me to tell they are from London because Project Mooncircle and Hip Hop Vinyl have released yet another gem! This label has been so consistent over the years that it's become almost impossible to find a bad release. Jazzy beats, but a little darker and abstract with conscious lyrics may sound cliche in the underground but this one's an exception. It's deep, it's meditative, it's not grime-rap...this is pure hip hop. The atmosphere of the album kind of reminded me of Serengeti and Polyphonic's Anticon release Terradactyl (my top pick of 2009). Obba Supa is a real surprise and pretty much blew me away...Heat!
