Wordy Soulspeak - Let The Rhythm HitBBE
It's safe to say that China hasn't been a hotbed for hip-hop but Wordy Soulspeak are out to change that. DJ Wordy provides catchy electronic beats, clever scratching and synths while Jeff Soulspeak provides tight production on their debut "Let The Rhythm Hit". The title track symbolizes their sound with clever synth arrangements and wicked break-beats. "Smokeout" is a nice laid back tune filled with warm keys and synths. WordySoulspeak cite many hip-hop influences and that's quite evident. I would bet that they heard a few Dam Funk recordings since several tracks have a 80's electro funk flavor as well. Wherever the inspiration came from the result is a promising debut from the duo from the Far East.
