- Rekkez by Mutamassik
8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 04 September 2012
Mutamassik, the alias of Giulia Loli, who has spent her life thus far between Italy, Egypt and the United States, is back with another full-lengther of dark hip-hop beats and hardcore breaks with lots of Egyptian percussion. It comes with a giant poster and 12 tracks of dark, hypnotic Madlib-meets-Muslimgauze downbeat East-meets-West hip-hop stylings, sometimes, such as in ‘Rawa’a’ taking things down to almost nothing for some almost dark ambient cyclical post-dub post-Moondogisms, while other tracks like opener ‘Rekkez’ provide almost irresistible bumpy grooves.
As the album goes on it seems to get more awkward and sparse and less beat-driven, with weird disjointed sounds, slow wonk-grooves and more of a dark ambient feel than a hip-hop one, although an understated reprise of the title track offers a little percussive respite. Phil says, “Just say it sounds like Muslimgauze”.
