The DubTalk ft. Hamza

Hamza’s newly released EP “Tracks from Mars” was one of the key windows we got into the outcome of his practiced craft. He performed the EP’s title track as well as “One Two”, both tracks clearly demonstrating his self professed obsession with writing short, dense lines painting tales in pictures. His performance of his poem “Impassable Stretches” was our second opportunity to see him at work, albeit in a different frame of mind. For Hamza, rap and poetry occupy two distinct modes of expression that, although sometimes utilizing the same techniques, scratch different pieces of his artistic itch. If you’re pressed for time, you can see the performances on our new series “TRAX”, which is a compilation of all of the performances from The DubTalk.Related Links: Raymond Antrobus‘ collection of poems The Perseverance.

TRAX by Hamza | The DubTalk

Hamza is the second guest to be featured on this season of The DubTalk. As you know if you’ve been keeping up with the weekly updates, we’ve decided to upload shorter compilations of some of the best moments from the episode in the lead up to its release. Our first new series is TRAX, a collection of all of the pieces performed by our guest. Hamza’s first piece is the title track off “Tracks from Mars”. He opens his EP with a clear statement of intent and style, which he delivered in the studio in his typical understated nonchalance. The second piece is a poem entitled “Impassable Stretches” wherein Hamza comes to a realization about depression while sitting in a chapel in solitude. His third and final performance in the K12 was a cheeky little number from “Tracks from Mars” entitled “One Two”. This track is a nod to all...

The DubTalk ft. Breezy

Season 3 is here, and for the first time, The DubTalk is on video. We invited Breezy to the K12 studio to talk about her new “Tragic Mulatto” EP. The session is a wealth of knowledge and infectious improvised tunes. From minute one, Breezy was candid and honest with Lex and Eli. Off of the back of her open demeanor, we quickly dove into serious conversation about her road to “Tragic Mulatto”. Returning to American culture was rough for Breezy after a year in Berlin studying at dBs Music Berlin. She spent some dramatic time in L.A., which ended in her decision to return back to her home on the east coast. It was there that “Tragic Mulatto” grew into the moving piece of music that it is. The album is informed by “sources”, as Breezy calls them in the interview. These short skit-like interludes come between each track and...

The DubTalk ft. Pourtr8s

Pourtr8s had some BAAARS to drop when he came into the K12. This Irish MC is the reason that Lexodus started to freestyle, and he came into the place fiery and ready to do just that. Pourtr8s prides himself on his ability to speak straight from the heart, and he uses hip hop to spread his message, which is one of acceptance and understanding. Growing up, he felt a deep connection with the ability of rappers to tap into the struggle of inner city ghettos, so he started freestyling at a young age to become a part of the culture. Amidst the savage freestyling, we got seriously in depth on the topic of hip hop and the kind of musical culture that we want to foster and cultivate in our lives. From swag rap to conscious rap, underground to main stream, we discussed the impact an MC can have and...

The DubTalk ft. Babiche Papaya

The penultimate episode of the final season features yet another multi-talented and socially active being, and she goes by the name of Babiche Papaya. At her request, we opened up the episode with a lengthy freestyle cypher session. Right away, we noticed how unique and witty her freestyle swagger is. She was whipping out lines that were totally off the wall and unexpected, which had us doubled over with laughter. Once we’d rapped ourselves into a frenzy, we finally introduced ourselves to each other and got to talking about serious shit. We wanted to understand how she perceived the Berlin hip hop scene as a woman and an immigrant from Rwanda. Although she speaks fluent German and has such an incredible flow, she was often discouraged by male MC’s treating her as an outsider and questioning her skill even when it was on clear display before them. Throughout the episode,...

The DubTalk ft. Emeka Ene

In the time since this episode was first aired, Emeka has let poetry fall to the side in favor of dance and performance art. Nowadays, he’s using his physical form to express the eccentricities of his mad soul. You can still find him at Curious Fox though. Every first Tuesday of the month, Emeka materializes from the ether to foster a the poetry of others.
