Sub Luna City – City Rivims Mk1
Sub Luna City are a British rap crew consisting of Edgar, Rago Foot, Jadasea, Black Mack. “City Rivims Mk1” released last month, is their debut album showcasing their unique, laid back vision of hip hop. Mixing up electronic smoke-filled beats, jazz, soul, and a nice helping of off-key British MCing. “City Rivims Mk1” washes over you like a mellow wave, seeping into your mind, needing repeat plays to get the full meaning and message of each track.
There is definitely more than a hint of 90’s hip hop in there, think Digable Planets, or even the Boogiemonsters (remember them?), but their sound is pushing into the future. Along with acts such as Strangelove and Hawk House, this is a new breed of boundary pushing hip hop coming out of the UK right now.
