As promised, Damu the Fudgemunk and Flex Mathews' full length album is here following their recent Burners EP. With Dreams & Vibrations the duo has assembled an ode to their love of hip-hop after a longtime friendship of over 15 years. Complete with all the essential elements of quality rap music, their true school approach features lively lyrical performances, in your face scratching, booming beats and a few extra surprises to garnish their 14 track offering. The project includes the single "Burners" which guest stars California rap pillar, Blu of Blu & Exile fame and Boston's finest, Insight (Y Society). The album was produced entirely by Damu the Fudgemunk with the exception of two specially arranged production appearances from the legendary DJ Spinna on the tracks "Double Helix" and "I Love It."
The range of sounds, textures, samples and interludes are woven between the artists skill sets of beats and rhymes. Flex is a true student of the craft and his passion for words easily captivates over the exceptional production from Damu the Fudgemunk. The record is a commodity for Damu's fans. Some of his best and most ambitious musical ideas to date are unveiled here. Aside from musical direction, Damu's presence is heard all over the album from guest verses on two tracks, various ad libs, long turntable solos and complex musical displays. Also worth mentioning: unlike a lot of today's collabs, the 2LP-set was recorded with both artists working together in the same studio.
The result is a lively, cohesive sound that rewards the listener who plays the album from start to finish in one sitting. Without a doubt the team compliments each other. If you've been dreaming of the right vibe, look no further. Dreams & Vibrations is set for positive impact on your nearest turntable.
