Esteemed London producers Charles The Earthman and Tom Foolery Beats both make up the production duo Earth2Tom. Their debut EP sees them compiling several of the soulful hip hop singles released over the last year along with some exciting new material too.
Their dusty boom bap style sees them incorporating choppy samples and dusty percussion. A diverse choice of guests accompany the beats – Keesha Simpson opens the record with some soulful singing combined with Daak Martin’s dope lyrics on ‘Hope’. This is followed immediately after by some tongue-twisting bars from South London rapper Confucius MC on ‘Robotz’.
Emcee Imagery and rapper-singer Holly Flo lightly also contribute vocal performances. All in all, the songs contain a good mixture of established and upcoming UK vocal talent. Instrumental tracks ‘Art’ and ‘Kari Da S’ meanwhile show off the beatsmiths’ production talent with some chopped and screwed pianos.
The EP serves as a taster of the duo’s upcoming album which will be hotly anticipated off the strengt of this EP! Anyone that loves their hip hop old skool and raw should definitely give this a listen.
