Love. Life. And death. These are the main sources for Misanthrop’s music: Rap in his most honest and pitiless form. No pose but poise. No self-centered delusions of grandeur but self-depreciating frankness.
Misanthrop simply leaves conventional stereotypes behind – he preferes to combine music and lyrics to his own headstrong interpretation of German rap.
His latest release, which is entitled “Psychogramm” (Personality profile), is his most personal release so far. Through it the listener approaches the ups and downs of life so close like never before. Here, anger and world-weariness seize the territory they are entitled to: The listeners’ hearts and brains.
Combining their distinctive producing skills, Misanthrop and Aqua Luminus III (Equinox Records, 88:Komaflash), both from Munich (Germany) created an astonishing 5 track EP that will appeal to both groups of listeners: abstract Hip-Hop heads and Electronica lovers. Although this is the first project at which the two artists and long time discjockeys worked together, they seem to harmonize perfectly. The diverse selection of samples, the heavy drum programming and crashing rhythms, plus the melodies and scratches – all this leads us to an uncommon but very unique and strong release.
The broad spectrum of sound colors on this limited edition picture vinyl 10” is reflected in the name “Leinwand” (German for canvas), whereas all names of the songs (e.g. “Giftgrün” (bilious green) or “Rabenschwarz” (black as a crow)) are coloquial German words for colors.
Additional information: This is the second vinyl only release on Audiac Records from Germany, the official sublabel of Equinox Records. The canvas artwork was done by Aqua Luminus III himself. The release is limited to 500 copies worldwide.
