Black Super Hero Musik - Vol. 1: Issue #1
reviewed by ZEROSYSTEM
A few days ago, a good friend of mine and Producer Curtis Metcalf made a post on Facebook asking for people to post links to their latest BandCamp projects and I figured I'd keep a look out for some stand out tapes to feature on the blog but I wasn't expecting this.
Enter: Black Super Hero Musik, a joint project between Jamal STEELE & EFAYEME. I can think of only a few times in my life that I lost composure listening to an album and this is one of them. Back in the 90's I was a comic and hip-hop head so to be able to hear golden era style production with top notch lyricism from emcees keenly aware of the subject material made me take note. So much so that I listened to this 3 track EP for the rest of the day wondering how were they able to capture the characters so well in sonic form.
Issue #1 starts with T'Challa, a lounge style track with Jamal STEELE & EFAYEME tag teaming it like Camp Lo in their prime. Next up is the silky smooth Ororo Munroe which production wise has some of the sickest drums I've heard this year. Carl Lucas ends the EP exactly the way Power Man would do it, a right hook to the jaw. I could go into a little more depth but I'd rather you experience them for yourself. Press play and experience what it's like to go from Wakanda to New York in 11 minutes.
