The Great Communication

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Somobe

In the tradition of groundbreaking producer/MC duos like Gang Starr and Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Las Vegas’ Somobe deliver purist hip-hop with a futuristic twist. Musician Bob J forgoes samples for long synth chords layered over pulsating melodies and backbreaking kick-snare patterns. Vocalist Jon D blends Common’s optimistic narratives with the confident twang of a young Jay-Z. The resulting debut, The Great Communication, is familiar yet refreshingly unique. Hopefully this secret won’t stay in Vegas.
