We had the honour to listen to Daretta some time ago thanks to our supafriends Overknights.
For sure is one of our favourite record of the year, and surely is one of the most important records that recently comes from the italian scene.
We've already talked about the new italian Hip Hop, Abstract, Wonk...ecc...but this time instead of describing instrumental shit, we'll need to recomend and focus to next level kind of MCing on which Daretta sits as undisputed King.
Daretta is definitely a post modern poet. His technique is eccelent, his style is chronic, and his mantric lirics are somewhere between modern hip hop and sciamanism.
Daretta points to describe the dark side of life with a smart approach that avoids obvious creative paths which often make serious issues patetic and readymade.
He uses a grimy sense of humor full of pop culture quotations and an arsh expressivity that makes his work associable to oldschool punk bands:
DARETTA made it happen....HARDCORE is Back...
Some words from Overknights:
"We are very proud to present Daretta and his solo album "Heavy Mental"!!
Our boy is representing for "la Raza Araucana" from Santiago de Cile to Firenze Rifredi, and describes himself as: 'Born in Minorca, son of Norca, killer like an Orca, as poetic as Garcia Lorca...'
Let this deeply determined MC take you down a spiral made of black velvety words... and if you don't understand italian you can catch some drops of spanish, french and english here and there.. we assure that the meanings are seriously backing up the sounds and the mood. NO DOUBT!
go for it
