Mon Corps T’Exprime
(2011, D.I.Y.) France.
Here is some good french hiphop.
I follow, sad, the different french hiphop band these years, and nothing really new comes out (except maybe Jonaz, Non-stop and Fuzati)
And then : Mochelan : here is the magic cocktail : Original production, Terrific voice and strong identity then smart-ass lyrics with a good flow.
Let’s listen to these tracks, after noticing this great artwork (I love combination of à-la-Epinal pictures).
There is two parts on that record : Thèse / Antithèse.
I must admit that I don’t really like the acoustic tracks, but it’s my bad : I listened too young too much The Locust and Hella.
But at least, the voice is more in front in the mix and you’ll better appreciate the quality of his lyrics.
I really love Notre Ville lyrics.
Then come the Antithèse part, electro and that was a big slap in my face.
My favorite track is Ah Ouais (evenif some may think it’s Alors Ouais).
A totally crazy production, crafted by the hands of the fine Listel Drinker, Max Landers.
I don’t say that because Max is a friend/co-worker, but it’s true : these piano riffs flaping in the air : well-done.
The mix is well-done and don’t struggle the voice : a master work.
“On choisit mal sa vie quand on choisit mal son vin” (To save in my punchline stock)
In the same vein : Incidence, Le Futur et Le Plus Barge and their delicatessen lyrics (cf Salvateur Dali).
Fine, Visionnary, We want more !
