Listen To Terreur Nocturne’s New Joint ‘Nécropole’ ft. OstiOne

New single from the group with the legendary OstiOne from the K6A collective as guest. Big dark beat with a trap flavor and obscure poetry raising a morbid cynicism specific to this deeply Phonk project.

TERREUR NOCTURNE is a Quebec rap duo made up of Mc Phylis (Mc Phylis and Maxime Robin, Arvida Crew) and BeatMaker-rapper Max T (Trunk 25, Token of Hate).

The project aims to be a spiritual hip-hop journey in which the two rappers exhibit a deep sense of cynicism, disgust and revenge without ever taking themselves seriously. It’s not Horror Core, nor Trap strictly speaking, it’s just rap made by two disillusioned thirty-something and a little bored of making art to entertain the plebs. All highlighted against a trap-vintage sound background: 90’s south rap, brag rap, vintage sampling, horror, old school video games, dragon dungeon, mysticism.

For the real music lovers, it’s good québ rap more nested, more underground which puts more on the tech, the flow and the darks beats.

Hip-Hop Tag Team Griff & Scorcese Drop Track, ‘DetLef’, Featuring Eddie Kaine

Hip-hop duo, D.C’s emcee SCORCESE and Chicago based producer GRIFF, unveiled their brand new joint titled ‘Detlef’, which features a grimy guest verse from Brooklyn’s Eddie Kaine.

Speaking on the track, Scorcese says: “Griff’s beat here reminded me of a Brooklyn cypher and being a fan of Eddie’s Nezzie Star project, I knew he would be perfect partner on this one.”

‘Detlef’ gives a taste of the forthcoming Griff/Scorcese album, ‘Midnight Express’ which further exemplifies their equal inspiration from boom-bap and professional wrestling.

Speaking on the significance of the album title, Scorcese explains: “The Midnight Express was this infamous heel (bad-guys), wrestling tag-team group in the 70’s and 80’s. It’s most famous incarnation was with wrestler Stan Lane, manager Jim Cornette and every territory they would wrestle in they would bring out a new partner to tag-in. I said to Griff, what if we brought out a new emcee to tag-in on every track? That’s how this album came about.”

Scorcese and Griff were previously featured on the blog with 2019 album, ‘The Dream Team: A Stokely Hathaway Joint’, which claimed the blog’s Song of the Week title three times.

The ‘Midnight Express’ album will be out later this month, 24th September. Have a listen to their hot joint below…
