After two EPs that shaked down the sound systems - Heavy This Year (2013) and Diskodub (2014) - and various collaborations with Chinese Man, DJ Vadim and Manu Digital, Taiwan MC returns better than ever with his first LP Cool & Deadly. For this new record Taiwan MC rivals the best and draws on his singular creativity by making use of innovative vocals, instrumentals and fresh collaborations from the likes of South-African rapper Tumi, English MC Youthstar, Cyph4, Miscellaneous (Chill Bump), Dj Nix'on, DJ Idem and Chinese Man. Impossible to go unnoticed here is the presence of the female voices of Anouk Aiata and Paloma Pradal who bring an undeniable sensuality to the proceedings.
For the production of Cool & Deadly, Taiwan MC called once again on his loyal partner, the talented S.O.A.P. (aka Son Of A Pitch who has worked with Oxmo Puccino, Féfé and Ward 21). He is now a master of keyboards and all things instrumental: saxophone, melodica, organ...all brilliantly mingled with the percussion of Marc Pujol, the bass and guitars of Matthieu Seignez as well as the brass of Mr Raf and Brice Moscardini. With Cool & Deadly, Taiwan MC produced a well-rounded opus by combining subtle flavors of hip-hop reggae, dub and electronic music. And he shows us the full extent of his vocal capacities, alternately singer, MC, entertainer...and proves once again his true talent as a performer.
