Here we have the first part of a music series, whose publications will be dedicated to a special district of Berlin. First up is a favourite of mine from Germany at the mo, the man responsible for those heavy Boom Bap beats from rap group Man of Booom, Figub Brazlevic. It will be interesting for the German folk to see which neighborhoods are yet to come. Nice concept, perhaps it could take off elsewhere in the world?!
Figub Brazlevic – KEATS 01: Moabit
Fresh new label straight outta the Kiezes of Berlin. Each volume is dedicated to the Kiez (hood) and beats of a contemporary beatsmith. Figub Brazlevic delivers Volume 1, a 12 track boom-bap-old-school-future love affair, freshly produced and arranged this spring and packed with a photograph from his neighborhood, shot by Figub himself. The whole series will be themed by a nice extra frame, drawn for each volume by one of our favorite illustrators, DJs & beatmakers: V.Raeter of Ecke Prenz.
