The mysterious Doppelgangaz duo produce some killer hip-hop and are on their way up the ladder- their music has been featured on the front-page of bandcamp, and I can foresee some favourable reviews coming their way.

I know normally on this blog I feature largely instrumental tracks, today I’m posting Here We Go which has some pretty dope flow and lyricism as well as tight, jazz-sample-based production. If you are into rap, I recommend checking the rest of their tracks. As whole, the record flows quite smoothly from start to end.

Don Da None – Le Bas Coté (Instrumental) by Chris


When I was about 13 years old I loved the german industrial-metal band Rammstein. I loved them so much it inspired me to learn German… until I found out I was head-banging along to graphic lyrics about gay sex. This isn’t something I’m against; It was just a little shocking for my 13-year old self. Then I looked at the cover of my favourite album- an image of the band shirtless and oiled up, standing in-front of a giant flower… it was never the same.

I did see Rammstein live many years later and they were amazing… but something about the muscular front-man in make-up, adorned with feathers and tight black leather just haunted the back of my mind… Mann gegen Mann
Meine Haut gehört den Herren… 

Now the reason I bring up Rammstein is not because of their deceptively homosexual lyrics, but because I haven’t ever loved a foreign band so much as to want to learn the intricacies of their language since I was 13 and head-banging away to German metal…

This time in French; NÉBULEUSE(s) is an album title I’m not even going to BEGIN to try and pronounce. My French is a bit rusty these days (read: ‘non-existent’), but that didn’t stop me from getting into talented French hip-hop artist Don Da None, who self-released his debut EP Nébuleuse(s) for only €3 in November last year.

Don Da None‘s lyrics flow so well  that it makes me wish I could speak French. There’s a sophistication in the way he speaks which compliments the amazing self-produced beats very well. Borrowing samples from rare soul and jazz records, Nébuleuse(s) would work as an instrumental album in it’s own right… In-fact, I have an instrumental copy of  Le Bas Coté to give you!
