Man, I'm not sure if I chatted bout it here or not, but I do miss France. Majorly.
So whenever I come across some good beat music out of FRA, I get pretty pumped. I seem to have this penchant and even a small bias in it's favor.
Hence, when I stumbled upon this group D3CCPT (D3 Concept) and a 12" entitled Psycho they were pushing out featuring the hardest working man in rap right now, I had to stop loop and listen.
How could I not?? it featured all things I loved: a hot beat, conceptually a Detroit sound and, the MC du jour @ the time, your man GS. Inevitably, you just knew they were on their way to a full album.
Kwame, Gea and Vestat aka D3CCPT, went on to complete what I would characterize tight LP: The Movement.
Featuring varied guests including the youngest in charge Black Milk, D3CCPT were able to convey the very heart and soul they feel: all things Detroit. From the rhyming, the electonice to that je ne sais quoi, theunmistakable brand that was heralded by none other. (D3CCPT btw is a play on words. In the French language, D3 is homonymous to Detroit. But D3 which is also 'These 3'. )
The LP gets artillery from such like minded as Sir OJ from Slumgullion, French man Fulgeance, EveryDayz and Pursuit Grooves (nice!). The body of the work however was deftly handled by Tayreeb who delivered absolutely delivered bangers.
There's no better feeling that a hot find and for all who enjoy that sound, D3CCPT have delivered one that will def keep your head bopping for some time to come.
And even better for all of us on the other side of the world, The Movement is available NOW on iTunes, and DRM free.
So in my last few beaming endorsements, want to leave you with a few joints.
