The Grouch
Sound Advice

Label: Alpha Pup Records
Release Date: Sep-09-2003


The combined work of The Grouch, D-Styles (DJ), and Daddy Kev (producer), Sound Advice is a very short (21 minutes in total) dive into an experimental world of classical jazz/hip hop fusion. The entire work stands out for its sharp use of jazz-tinted piano, string, and horn pieces floating over subtle "beats" (I am loath to use that term when writing of hip hop) and elaborate double-bass riffs skilfully arranged into a hip hop context that "makes sense". It is recommended for the wonderfully original (in the context of a hip hop album) compositions and arrangements of D-Styles and Daddy Kev, as well as being a worthy introduction to The Grouch.
