Como Asesinar A Felipes - MMXX [Koolarrow Records 043 Promo]

Run by Billy Gould of Faith No More-fame since the late 90s the Koolarrow Records label has released "MMXX" on October 16th, 2k20, the latest album effort by long standing Chilean band outfit Como Asesinar A Felipes who are coming at us with seven new and original tracks plus an additional set of seven remixes on this longplayer which is even including a contribution crafted by Dub-staple Mad Professor as probably the most prominent producer among those remixers featured. Based around a framework of turntablism, raw and dirty HipHop paired with elegic strings as well as a gritty underground street attitude and loads of intricate sample works fans of the Mutant HipHop genre might recognize connections to late albums by bands like Dälek whereas others might draw a musical connection to an attitude displayed in instrumental masterpieces like DJ Shadow's "Endtroducing..." - all falling together in an intense and well urgent manner sonically reflecting on the political socio-economic tension their motherland Chile is going through these days whilst the remixes are covering a stylistic range from HipHop-infused NuDisco / SlowHouse to obviously heavyweight Dope Beats, partially garnished with deeply melancholic synth lines and cinematic backdrops, tripping, ever stumbling Illbient / Crooklyn Dub and beyond. A well interesting one for the underground HipHop-headz out there.
