Al’Tarba & DJ Nix’on
“(…) This is raw, grimy, gritty, and every other word you can use to describe the word of the streets in its purest forms. The cuts by Dj Nix’on are a perfect match and display top tier talent” -Ok-tho.com
“[A track] that takes us to an authentic ‘high’, with a lot of substances passing from hand to hand and mouth to mouth. With a real trip and gore.” – Tsugi
French beatmaker and rapper Al’Tarba already has a lot of releases and numerous collaborations with rappers on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean (Zoxea, Swift Guad, but also Raekwon, Ill Bill, Onyx, Q-Unique…). Also member of the A Clockwork Orange-inspired crew Droogz Brigade, his music is reminiscent of Alex DeLarge and his droogies’ morbid escapades : horrific, disturbing, but somehow appealing and highly enjoyable.
Nonetheless, the young artist tends to broaden and diversify his body of work by releasing abstract hip hop projects, with the same success as before (the compilation “Lullabies for Insomniacs”, released digitally for free in 2011, has been downloaded more than 50,000 times).
He released an EP on Jarring Effects called “The Sleeping Camp”, and a new album “Let The Ghosts Sing” in 2014 with more to come this year. With more than 4,000,000 views on his youtube channel and over 40,000 followers on fb, you shall be on the lookout !
