The festive period is now more than half way through, but just because the turn of the year has arrived, that doesn’t mean the gifts have to come to an end.
Well, at least not if you’re a fan of Manchester hip-hop collective The Mouse Outfit or North Carolina rapper Mattic. The two released their collaborative EP Born Lupers via Bandcamp yesterday for a January sale price of just £5.
To be honest it’s pretty flawless throughout, with a series of stoner hip-hop ditties that get stuck in your head and make it think at the same time – as was proved when the title track was chosen as a our Track of the Day a few weeks back.
However, upon the whole project’s first listen it was the disjointed samples and light as air vocal on ‘Recording Again (Ted Pipes) that really caught Far Out’s attention.
And in exchange for offering us this most welcome of presents six days after the Christmas period is underway, The Mouse Outfit & Mattic can bask in the glory being our last Track of the Day victors of 2014. See you next year. X
