The Tape vs RQM is Berlin based producer Robot Koch (Jahcoozi, Autodrive, MMDC) and Polish Brooklyn born, Barcelona resident MC RQM (Al Haca, Stereotyp, I-Wolf, Filewile). The EP Luvely features the original track and three remixes, by Chris de Luca (Funkstörung), Filewile and Kalabrese.
Luvely is a soulful, Rock-Electronica tune, built on a strong Hip Hop foundation. The intro gives the impression of listening to a live band play - an impression that remains throughout the track, even though the electronic production is hardly concealed. A Heavy rhythm section, super tight arrangements, intelligent in your face rhymes and an incredible over all groove make up this monster of a tune. Strange this piece was made in Berlin, when it sounds so incredibly American. It's just so very soulful, so big city sound, so 70's influenced, so movie score... so big! This sounds like the Mahavishnu Orchestra of Hip Hop - from a Billy Cobham kinda angle - so take it as a compliment.
The Remixes cover a more electronic angle. Chris de Luca has us straight in the club: heavy, twisted beats with a touch of Baile Funk, rocking every breaks floor out there. Filewile employ RQM's talent for their tours and he regularly guests on their studio work. So it comes as no surprise, that their version of Luvely is an actual retake, both from the vocal and the music ends. RQM teams up with fellow Filewile singer Joy Frempong, while the rhythm section now features a live bass, courtesy of Mago, another Filewile associate. The groove is ever so funky, with some wicked sub-conscious bongo beat setting the pace.
The mix for the early hours comes courtesy of Kalabrese, Zurich based producer and DJ. His take on Luvely is a Minimal House affair, full of organic sounds, brimming with energy, humour and beautiful melodies.
