If you measure the quality of hip-hop on whether or not it brings out your shuffle, pay attention to Hyrdroponic Sound System. From the hilarious lyrics of Ray's Bodega, to the true words of Play The Role and Distractions these tracks are a fresh mix of soul, funk, spanish guitar, spacey synths and deep, indie hip-hop flavor.

The b-side's gonna surprise you with two lusciously smooth downtempo tracks entitled Modern Atmospheres and Disconnected. Modern Atmospheres drops laid-back, Chemical Brothers styled beats, that get softened up with synth pads, jazz flute and guitar, along with subtly spoken, vocal loops. Disconnected goes for an old school IDM-tinged flavor with lo-fi bass kicks and snares over a backdrop of vinyl static and mellow organ that gets joined by flanged and reverbed vocals. Choice Cuts Vol. 1 is definitely eclectic. Having been introduced to Hydroponic Sound System on DJ Chicken George's The Swed.u.s.h Connection, this ep makes for an excellent second impression.

Weiter geht die Swed.u.s.h Connection. Baustelle Dallas. Dort sitzen die Producer Skinny Fresh und Rube in einem staubigen Studio, wenn sie nicht gerade mit Onkel Snoop oder dem Anti-Pops unterwegs sind. Oldschool-Anleihen gepaart mit Soul und den Gastvocals von Headkrack und Bavu Blakes setzen das Standing, das schon vor Zeiten mit einem gewissen Freddie Cruger begann flockig fort. Auf der Rückseite werden sie noch deutlich entspannter, auch wenn der Pitch auf +20 steht. Der instrumentale Downbeat von Modern Atmospheres kontrastiert mit Flöte, E-Bass und Kongas, eh bei Disconnected dann der Rauchwahn ausbricht. Also doch kein Brandy. 4/5 - m.path.iq
