North West Metropolis

Expressions EP

(UR003)
Back to overview

The Expressions EP is the first and only release by North West Metropolis, a hiphop collective consisting of producers Perquisite, Omar Rey, Ane and MC’s Cee Major, Pete Philly and Kain Slim. Innovating Hip Hop is the keyword. Cee Major (the Proov), Pete Philly (ex-Nicotine) and Kain Slim (False Chordz) take things up to another level supported by the sometimes slumbering minimalistic yet innovating sound of the North West Metropolis beats. A remix is included by Rednose Distrikt. More info on North West Metropolis.

“These kids are nice; with the beats, the rhymes; they’re doing their thing. It was a complete surprise when I realized they were actually coming out of Amsterdam…” Andre Torres, Waxpoetics (New York, US)
