Review: JPDL x YOGI – {Visual Mixtape}

In Hip Hop by Chris White

Cheltenham based rapper JPDL teams up with the formidable YOGI beats for a 12 minute EP via Played Out Record, showcasing how talented a wordsmith JDPL has become.

The visual aspect of the mixtape is not to be underestimated, as well crafted graphics which effortlessly allow us to follow the narrative and help bring JDPL’s bars to life.

Lyrically sublime, and with a constant stream of beats ranging from old school to heavily jazz and soul influenced, this EP really feels like a journey. Not just through hip hop, but through the minds of the two creatives behind it. Don’t sleep on this pair as we can only expect even bigger and better thing’s to come! You can see them at our Portobello Live showcase on May 5.
