Drowning Dog & Malatesta - Sick Of This Shit [Entartete Kunst Records]

Coming in directly from the hands of the artists is "Sick Of This Shit", the latest album outing by the international, now Berlin-based underground HipHop duo Drowning Dog & Malatesta which we've met only recently when they were playing a show alongside Optimus GFN at Hamburg's Hafenklang venue. Together, the pair creates a dark, yet bouncing and unique take on conscious underground HipHop bordering the realms of so-called Mutant HipHop at times. With Malatesta on production surely playing out on and bringing forth an evolutionary step of his influences which he stated to be Illbient, grinding, doomed and sparse Downbeat as well as stuff released on Mille Plateaux' former 'Electric Ladyland'-series alongside Drowning Dog on vocal duties, spitting her on point, razor sharp lyrics without giving the audience a break we see the duo create one of the most fascinating HipHop longplay outings we've come across in ages with "Free Thought" not only being the albums potential hit single but also a blueprint of how to keep BoomBap fresh whilst combining elaborate raps and unique, off-kilter hooks to a massive, well bouncing effect. Large up!

A little background story on how this release ended up with us:
