Mattic releases a dope free download reminiscent of 90s hip hop.
I remember listening to Mattic for the first time last year when he released The Abstract Convention on Phonosaurus Records. Capturing the essence of a true MC from the golden age, we’re happy to hear a brand new track from his vault and it’s free! The North Carolina rapper sent “gigabytes of unreleased demos, back catalogue and mixtapes” over to Two Hungry Ghosts, a site dedicated to electronic music, underground hip hop and all that retro goodness. On Soul Of The Ghost In The Machine Parts 1 And 2, Mattic begins with a monologue of his approach to music and why he prefers sampling to non-sampling before the beat fully kicks in – hard chops and thumping kicks galore. Break neck stuff, and that’s just Part 1. On Part 2, Mattic spits over a superb sample of The Originals’ We Can Make It Baby that sounds fresh enough to have been released today. Love Madlib, Dilla and 9th Wonder? Wrap your ears around this now.
