Erik L & Illingsworth – Northern Connection

by JM on January 26, 2010


Sundsvalls own Erik L (Supersci & Favorite Flava) is a busy man, he spit out one great tune after another. This time he has teamed up with Detroit’s Illingsworth and created a monster album full of broken hip hop.

I don’t really know how they’ve worked with this album, if they’ve worked together with the beats or if they’ve made the beats separated and collected them on this album. Either way we get sixteen track and a bunch of guest appearances, how about; Black Reign, Ohkang, 7even:Thirty, Sene, Supersci, Stryfe, Paradox, Stray & Hanna.

It’s kind of hard to try to pin down the sound on this album but I’ll give it a try. Slow hip hop beats with funky but still a modern touch. The album is released on Erik’s own label Soularp Records.

If you’re into these kind of avantgarde beats you shouldn’t miss this one.
