Chimp Beams Menina
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Concent Productions
Critics typically classify Chimp Beams as three Japanese electronic-dub dudes, but Mari, K-Go, and U-Ske are more accurately Brooklynites who filter their smooth downtempo sounds through the ragged textures of urban living. Menina is a vibrant collection of moods, conjuring visions of lonely cityscapes ("11217") and calm, crisp, melodic moments ("Menina"). Check MC Roger Kahlon's mesmerizing flow on one of the Chimps' most compelling tracks, the dub-centric, jazz-inflected hip-hop cut "Synthesized"-it'll make you yearn for more.
