Gabe’s Picks – January 27

Recently a lot of print has been dedicated to the “New School” of Seattle hip hop made up of groups like THEESatisfaction and Champagne Champagne.  These groups fuse techno laden beats with classic laid back raps to create music that is both fun to listen to and invokes real emotion.  The question many are asking about the “New School” is if it is a lasting musical style, or just a fleeting craze.  In my opinion, one group stands above the rest in both their excellent beat selection and their lyrical talent.  That group is Helladope, made up of MC’s Jerm and Tay Sean and part of the Cloud Nice collective.  Both MC’s rap and Tay Sean handles most of the producing duties.  The duo is based in Beacon Hill and released their first album, Return To Planet Rock, in 2009.
