Specifics Lonely City
- Words: DJ Daz
- Label: LP
This three-man crew from Montreal, Quebec (MC Golden Boy, Producer Think Twice and DJ Goser) takes hip-hop back to a time of creative samples, monotone vocals and fresh cuts. Think Twice comes with some heavy, boom-bap beats, along with jazz and soul samples and chopped up sounds reminiscent of early Dr. Dre, RZA and Premier productions. Credit due to DJ Goser's smooth, understated scratches, cutting in familiar vocal snippets, horns and snares from classic hip-hop tracks. Check for the cuts "Lonely City," "Put Ya Hands Up," "Under The Hood" and "That is Why" to truly understand the musical diversity of this crew.
