Describing the project as "Boom bap '90s style hip-hop", the guys at Remnant Muzik have come up with exactly that. Working together doing it for God ("We Doin It") are D7 and others like Soloman Gehazi, Sheziah, Radical and Matt D. As a UK-based collective (from Wolverhampton to London and beyond), it's refreshing to hear old skool breaks with British emcees flowing. Throughout the boom bap keeps flowing, with the head-nodding breaks and a generally laid-back style of rapping. Occasionally there seems to be a bit of a mismatch vocals and backing track ("So Short") but because there's a real feel of vinyl about the album, this may well be intentional - reflecting the early days of hip-hop. There are also some standout beats and tracks like "Real Recognise Real" which is truly reminiscent of hip-hop back in the day before commercialism superseded content in the rap industry. Overall this is solid, God-centred and just a hint at the good tunes and increased production now flowing from Remnant Muzic.
