Sepalot "Did It Again feat. Saigon"
Germany's not exactly a hotbed for rappers, and it's perhaps the fact that he doesn't have many local influences to pull from that gives Sepalot his own unique flavor when it comes to music. His recently released Red Handed album finds the Munich-based DJ as influenced by electro as he his by Detroit hip-hop, with artists like Frank Nitty (of Frank 'n' Dank fame) rapping over buzzing club beats. The resulting sound constantly darts between grinding, aggressive production and a light, partygoing feel–an intriguing juxtaposition. Photo by C. Boehm.
