Stream the latest full-length from New York hip hop duo the Doppelgangaz, Hark, via the widget above. Though the duo takes a lot away from the heyday of hardcore hip hop, don’t expect something gritty and in-your-face. Rather, The Doppelgangaz prefer a much more moody and subtle approach to their deliveries and song subjects–especially on atmospheric cuts like “Oh Well.” Enjoy!
New York’s hip hop scene has been quite active lately, with crews such as A$AP Mob, Pro Era, Flatbush ZOMBiES, and The Underachievers enjoying notable amounts of success throughout the past couple of years. The latter two have teamed up for a track titled “No Religion,” which comes from Flatbush ZOMBiES’ upcoming mixtape, Better off Dead. Stream the track above via the group’s SoundCloud.
If nothing else, both Flatbush ZOMBiES and The Underachievers certainly have a respectable amount of energy. The MCs in each crew possess consistently fiery flows and inspired delivery, which serve to maintain a substantial sense of momentum throughout this track. Lyrically, their lines are similarly empowered, with a hook that encourages other rappers to stop trying to follow in the footsteps of their idols and instead strive to be something greater. With an appropriately hard-hitting beat to back them up, Flatbush ZOMBiES and The Underachievers pull together every element necessary in order to display their bold personalities.

On Nails’ sophomore release, the band makes a series of slight improvements to their already extreme sound.

What we have here is a pretty interesting international collaboration between two hardcore bands Loma Prieta from the Bay Area of the U.S and Raein who hail from Italy. They’re both due to be featured on a forthcoming split on Deathwish.
What we get from them is what I can only think of as controlled seizures of hardcore and quick musical shifts. It all initially seems so frantic in the brief 44 second run time, but with multiple listens it is clear that it is more precise musicianship and delicate work to create that sound of chaos. Loma creates some passionate, brief, and intense music here. The ear-piercing shots of guitar are an especially nice touch, too.
