Rekta – Hustle Life (June 09, 2017)

Rekta, a French rapper from Rennes city, has been on top of the game since quite a while, and now he’s back with his new album called “Hustle Life“. It looks like a solid g-funk / gangsta rap album packed with dope guests both from USA and France: Kokane, Big Tray Deee, RBX, Westcoast Stone, Bad Azz, Lil’ Eazy-E, Baby Eazy-E, Smokey Lane, Mofak, Reena, Nancy Fletcher and others.

It’s worth pointing out that Rekta never disappointed on his previous albums La Niche (released as duo with his homie Twareg) and Marche Ou Creve and now he proves again that he’s one of the most active gangsta rappers nowadays keeping it real with the game, droppin’ dem bombs on a constant basis.

All in all, we highly recommend you to check out and cop this album which gets released in CD format as well as digitally thru ADDICTIVE MUSIC

Bybo – Dream On (2016)

0007876932_10Early September, Germany-based label dropped their 3rd release – Dream On EP by a Karlsruhe native, Bybo – a producer from Germany. First Touch lent a hand here with some mixing/post production and put their glossy stamp on most of the cuts.

This 6 track EP travels with ease through the spectrums of Modern Funk, Boogie, New Jack Swing & G-Funk and is definitely must have for the fans of all the above genres: “you get a mixture of fat synth bass, jazzy chords and mellow strings. The end result is a mix that ranges between 80s Funk and Gfunk. Besides this you can recognize elements of New Jack Swing, clearly in the track “Superintelligence” with features such as specific chords mixed with 80s synth sounds”.
