“Since releasing his eclectic debut album, “Transistor Rhythms” on 50 Weapons last year, the electronic maestro Addison Groove of Footcrab fame, has proved to be unexpectedly deft in all sorts of non-bass related goodness, if not a lols track-namer (‘Rudeboy’, ‘Ass Jazz’, ‘Incredibly Exhausted Bunny Ears’?).
Ahead of playing Easter weekend’s Ostgut Ton Vs 50 Weapons night where he’ll be repping his label alongside Shed and Benjamin Damage, whilst special guest Robert Hood joins Function and the Ostgut crew taking over Room 1 - he’s made us an exclusive mix featuring heady jams from the footwork G, DJ Earl, and Machinedrum-collaborator Om Unit to Outkast.” - Dazed
Der Hi-Hat Club versteht sich als Labor, in dem die Producer all das ausprobieren können was im klassischen Hip-Hop-Kontext von Beat plus Rap nicht möglich ist, beim Champion Sound Geburtstag startete das einmalige Beat-Ensemble mit oben genannter Aufstellung. Eine spannende Mischung aus Live-Performances an MPC und Controller, Sound System und Beat-Battle, stilistisch grenzfrei, nur Dope muss es sein!” - Champion Sound
“Legendary Swedish Techno producer responsible for some of the biggest trax of the late 90s and early 00s on his own Corb & DK imprints aswell as on labels like Adam Beyer’s Drumcode & Code Red.” - Future/Past
This time around Serge Severe has linked with up and coming Hip Hop producer 5th Sequence for the EP Boom Bap & Bars Vol. 1 available May 6th. The EP is a combination of 5th’s jazzy hard-hitting production and Severe’s razor tongue.
“The EP is full of dusty samples, jazzy hooks, and lyrical dexterity that harkens back to the golden era of hiphop.” - Ryan Feigh (Portland Mercury)
