Album Review

Mekalek – “With Percee P and Fedd Hill ” – [Glow in the Dark Records]

Max Level   4/11/2006   12-inch, Hip Hop

Two tracks from the upcoming full-length by producer/beatmaster Mekalek of Time Machine. On the P side, Rhyme Inspector Percee P (NY) hits hard with his aggressive, rhythmic, rhyming style. Mekalek’s beat is big and busy, full of keyboards and percussion, but doesn’t overpower Percee’s delivery. As if anything could. On the F side, the Fedd Hill crew (RI) shows us what time it is, in the cover photo and on their group track. Mekalek sets up a simple, moody beat giving Pone, Jahpan, and Trens lots of room for their perceptive, socially-conscious lyrics. All the pieces fit perfectly on this strong track. Track 4 on the P side is untitled and sounds like a messin’ around, behind-the-scenes thing. Track 4 on the F side is a megamix appetizer of tracks from Mekalek’s ‘Live and Learn? record, scheduled to drop on us around May or so. The mixtrack is fun to hear but probably not good for radio, being many short snippets kind of glued together.
