Product Type: VINYL LP
Beat master Muqata'a, one of the brains behind the thriving hip hop scene in Ramallah, Palestine, delivers a unique instrumental album, Inkanakuntu. While Discrepant were exploring the world digging for music that exists at the edge of many genres they realized the need to create an (other) adventurous new sublabel. Souk Records aims to bring beats from every corner of the world with the divergent and discrepant taste that has been delivered since 2010. Inkanakuntu is more than an instrumental hip-hop album, with nods to classic hip-hop works and mixed with a downtempo grime feel that captures the urgency and eagerness of UK's dance culture. With these eight instrumentals Muqata'a shows how vast and deep his music knowledge is, with a refined taste and a perfect sense of melody-molding. Sometimes it's real raw, in others we can feel mellowness and jazz feeling or the perfect pop beat. Make no mistake, Muqata'a is a beats craftsman.
