Sons Phonetic – Déise hip-hop collective
What you may need to know…
01. Acting as both a name for their collective creative endeavours and an umbrella for their solo work, Waterford beats co-op Sons Phonetic is comprised of Rabiah “Mook” Zaruq (aka Nylon Primate), Sammy Dozens, Tommy Tyler, Ian Kav, Mouse Hughes and DJ/cutman Tom Dunne.
02. This past weekend, the collective’s first collaborative release since 2011 debut album Twelve Labours was released, entitled Deloreans.
03. The self-produced LP features cuts from UK skratchologist Moschops and Corkonian hip-hop godfather JusMe.
04. The album is streaming in the widget above, and available for download via their Bandcamp, along with several of the members’ solo releases.
Thoughts: Proper, boom-bap production and clinical, precision wordplay. Decent Irish hip-hop™, indeed.
