Smoke Notes

New Zealand's homegrown hip-hop scene has been gathering more and more momentum over recent years, to the point where we're now stocking our shelves with hot new local releases on a weekly basis. The quality keeps getting better and better too, and this anticipated release from Auckland-based trio Ill Semantics is another local release that'll attract a lot of interest. Coming straight out of South Auckland's Dawn Raid studios, the group's debut full length is jammed packed with crafty wordsmithery, fat beats and hooky melodies, including some classic appropriations of instantly recognisable pop hooks ranging from the Fat Albert theme to De La Soul, the latter rubbed tastily up against a hit hook from New Zealand's own Ardijah. The boy/girl MC combination and a huge guest list make for good vocal variety, producers John Chong Nee and P-Money deliver some dope beats and the group's in-house DJ CXL is as deft hand at the scratch, so all up this is a near-perfect package and one of the best local hip-hop releases you'll hear this year.
