Stream: SIFU Hotman S/T EP (Show TONIGHT)
If you somehow have missed the Guante + Rube + Dem Atlas collab effort SIFU Hotman earlier this year, now is your time to repent. You can stream the three song EP below, which features Rube’s frantic beats with some playful but powerful rhymes from Guante and Dem Atlas. Guante uses this release to step back a bit from his social commentary for a few rounds of spit-fire-shit-talk, and he is met round for round with the spirited stylings of Dem Atlas, who was new to me when I first heard this EP. The limited edition vinyl that the trio released features the three songs plus a flip-side that features instrumental beats and a vocal only version of “Limb for Limb.” Hearing Rube’s high octane beats without the vocals makes you appreciate how frantic and wild these songs are, and how impressive it is Guante and Dem Atlas were in crafting vocals that matched the beats intensity. Stream the EP below and buy the limited edition vinyl from Fifth Element.
The trio don’t play out much, but you can see them tonight at a All Ages show in Burnsville at the Garage.
