The vibes from Contrahesive takes you back to the heavy nineties with a touch of Fjärde Världen. Not least because of the genius producer Robin Banks’ ability to create feeling and thought in every beat, and Luuda’s verses, delivered softly just like Jay-Z but in Swedish.
The first time I heard Luuda was on Snook’s first album “Vi vet inte vart vi ska men vi ska komma dit” in the song “Har du tänkt på din egen begravning?” (“Have you thought about your own funeral?”), where he makes a masterly guest appearance. MC Porno I heard on Allears a year ago, and I have liked him since then. Especially for the song “Bob Dylan Is a Rapper”. Porno’s style is right up my alley, since hip hop and electronica are my two favourite genres. I think that Porno’s way of mixing these genres and at the same time have an international and unique sound, makes him stand out. And that the styles of the two rappers are so different makes this collaboration even more interesting.
Porno, Luuda and Robin Banks have together created the album “Reflection Is Relative”, which could be the soundtrack to Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Domino or any great movie. The album is real and doesn’t solve any political world problems, but the lack of good Swedish hip hop and autumn drabness.
