You might have heard of him. You might’ve not. You might’ve seen him jamming with some Brighton bods. Spoken word artist and National Poetry Slam champ Adam Kammerling, also known by the ridiculously creative alias Adam The Rapper, has teamed up with producer Cuth to drop their debut joint project. An “…earthy, soulful brew”, “The Letters EP” sees the Don’t Flop associated wordsmith strike up a winning combination with his compatriot behind the beats; delivering a smooth, smart and downright impressive release.
Tracks like “Remember The Days”, “Shining”, “Break Your Heart” and the mellow grooves of “Got It Back” showcase Cuth’s superior crate-digging skills; as the soul-drenched samples offer an ideal backdrop for Adam’s laid-back flows. Maybe it’s the spoken word element to his verbal offerings, but the clarity and emphasis of delivery, blended with Cuth’s dope beats, make “The Letters EP” a crisp, distinctive and infectious listen.
With their debut EP, Adam & Cuth manage to draw from the essence of Hip Hop of old; honest, heartfelt lyrics packaged neatly with tight-knit, head nodding instrumentation. Lyrically, it’s refreshingly clear that the duo are genuinely normal geezers, with nothing more than a love for the art and something clever and witty to say. Throw in a couple of guest spots from fellow B-Town heads Teej and Vecks and “The Letters EP” is a short, yet extremely sweet offering. If you don’t believe the hype, check the brilliant promo vid they’ve dropped, before heading to their Bandcamp page and doing the business. £2 folks, it’s a no-brainer…
