Dodeca Records Presents the long awaited launch party for the critically acclaimed ‘93’ - the debut album from the Emcee / Poet / Social Critic Mowgli at Cargo on Thursday 10th June.
To match the eclectic vision of the album and of the label, we have a rarely-seen-before selection of acts to fill the night, which promises to deliver a refreshing mix of dark, experimental and soulful vibes from some of the best and most interesting artists around today across different genres.
What the critics thought of ‘93’:
'Experimental Art-House UK Hip Hop ... a fine example of where UK Hip Hop has been heading ... plenty of exciting sonic moments.’
Mixmag (Album Of The Month ****)
‘Creativity flows from this record ... if you prefer a challenge ... invest. Kudos sir, kudos. Get on it as soon as you can.’
Echoes Magazine (Album Of The Month ****)
‘...it’s got the lot: venom, funk, sensitivity and soul ... raw rhythms and intelligent word play. Roots Manuva and Dizzee Rascal have flown the flag admirably, but this kid’s take on cliché-free hip-hop is an absolute bolt-out-of-the-blue revelation.’
Tilllate Magazine (9/10)
‘Ambitious ... elaborate and eclectic ... echoes the wildstyle invention of US talents such as Aesop Rock.’
‘...a mighty promising debut. Imbued with an almost impenetrable wall of riddle-loving lines and evocative imagery, it’s quickly apparent that Mowgli boasts lyrics to burn ... there’s more than a passing resemblance to Roots Manuva’s weighty delivery ... if this is indicative of the life rustling in the country’s rap undergrowth then all hope might not be lost just yet.’
