Raw, gritty, a dizzying narcotic rush – Tadd Mullinix a.k.a. Dabrye created an unstoppable manifesto with this album. When the Jedi Mind Tricks just reproduce the every day violence of a system that let people starving to death and forces everybody to work yourself to death and so JMT become a part of this violence themselves, Dabrye creates cold beats that mirror and break the modern enslavement at the same time, like Detroit Techno also did. His first works were just instrumental and more minimalistic, detail-driven creations. On two/three he has invited some MCs, but kept up his personal style balancing crackling trap kit beats against gossamer melodies and bass lines that reference jazz and electro in equal measure, rooted more in hip hop than ever before and emerging at the forefront of hip-hop’s new wave! And with guests like MF Doom, Beans, Wildchild, Guilty Simpson, Waajeed, AG or Day Jee really nothing can go wrong. Two/Three, the second offering in a trilogy of albums, bridges the gap between One/Three’s slinky minimalist hip-hop, and shows a promising glimpse of what lay ahead. One of the best records from 2006 and still on the top in 2007!
The man with the mask, metal-face MF Doom and mysterious Clutchy Hopkins. Is Hopkins really this bearded old man? You can help investigating the case or you just believe the official biography. To give you the short version: after travelling around the world, today Clutchy Hopkins is living in a cave. Or you just don´t care about it and enjoy this jazzy, funky Hip Hop songs from two (?) fantastic musicians.
