Emcee Mattic brings some real fresh and original hip-hop to the table, with his full-length "The Abstract Convention". Producer's The Dirty Art Club provides eclectic, abstract soundscapes through the use of samplers and live instrumentation. Influences from vintage true school rap, jazz, funk, psychedelic rock and even classical compositions stand out without coming off as messy. However, you're gonna need a skilled rapper who's able to captivate the general hip-hop head, using such lush musical settings; Luckily Mattic's effortlessly flows his way through the entire set. If you got an open mind when it comes to your musical preferences, this is strongly recommended. Released via Phonosaurus Records, the project is available on wax, CD and in digital format (purchase for download / stream for free).
