Chill Bump - Hidden Strings EP

We've been waiting on French duo Chill Bump's third EP and after the excellent first two efforts, it's safe to say our expectations for 'Hidden Strings' were high. Fortunately those expectations have been met, perhaps even surpassed by Bankal and Miscellaneous' latest release.
Bankal's beats are, as always, well on form, with complex and unique use of samples and original material to create perfect audio backgrounds to Miscellaneous' words, it's very hard to pick a stand out track in this regard, but the mellow final track, '5 Minute Breather', is fast becoming one of our favourite hip-hop beats of all time.
On the lyrical front the story is much the same. Miscellaneous' vocal energy is sublime, yet aggressive when he needs it to be. His flow remains unquestionably tight and his highly charged lyrics, discussing everything from politics, to creativity, to the condition of the modern man, serve to truly cement each tracks' status as a valuable work of art. Again, choosing a stand out track isn't easy, but in this case we've chosen the politically charged opener 'Life Has Value', in which Miscellaneous' aggressive delivery and revealing observations surmise perhaps his finest lyrical peak to date. 
As with previous releases this EP is available for FREE via BandCamp, so listen below and head on over to grab it. This is yet another exciting release in a string of commendable Hip-Hop efforts by Chill Bump, so grab the other releases if you haven't already and show some love on their Facebook. There's big things in store for these guys in the future and we can't wait to see what's next.
