le hip hop

Who likes french rap ?
not me...
but, sometimes, you gotta stay open, and that's how you discover fresh sounds !

a few time ago, i saw this, ans it was kinda funny :

Then i saw this :

so i searched, and discovered Hocus Pocus !
He (actually it's a band) is an MC from Nantes (Bretagne, FR), he's smart, he's funny, his visual style is very nice and he has a lot of influences (jazz, funk, soul, ...).
so, here are some tracks to discover this fresh kind of hip hop.
(it's better if you speak french, 'cause the lyrics are quite good)

Discover Hocus Pocus!

Abd al Malik
He's also a rapper, but more politicaly engaged. 
His album, Gibraltar, has been well received, and won a lot of prices.

Midnight Madness by The Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers are testing some new material this summer, before the release of their 2nd 'Best Of'-album, 'brotherhood'.
They played this new track at Rock Werchter, and I've read (because i was on holiday...), that it worked very well !

from their site :

23-06-2008 // Following their fifth consecutive number 1 album last year, the Grammy award winning ‘We Are The Night’, The Chemical Brothers return with ‘Brotherhood’ a best of collection with a kick and a twist, set for release on 1st September 2008.

Brotherhood comprises of 2 discs, the first is a collection of 13 Singles from the band's immense back catalogue and new track ‘Keep My Composure’ which features the shimmering flow of Baltimore’s Spank Rock.

The 2nd will feature exclusively Electronic Battle Weapons 1-10. Since 1996 Electronic Battle Weapons have acted as the laboratories for The Chems devious musical experiments and laid the rhythmic and melodic foundations for numerous tracks as well as providing some of the duos most formidable mixes. Until now Electronic Battle Weapons 1-9 have only been available on various limited formats and this is the first time they have been widely available.

Brotherhood will be preceded by the digital download single Midnight Madness on 4th August 2008. Derived and developed from Electronic Battle Weapons 10, Midnight Madness is The Chemical Brothers at their most infectious, euphoric, report to the dancefloor best.
