The Chicharones

Boss Hogs EP from Low Pressure Record’s icon-man Josh Martinez and Oldominon’s Sleep could easily be one of the finest underground hip-hop albums to come out this year.

The collaborative project contains some very animated rhymes and quirky beats, making it a fresh listen every time. The seven tracks feature some of Sleep’s signature double-time rapping ability and Josh Martinez’s famous satirical humour and comments.

This is a fun and upbeat album overall, with intensely serious moments touching on the subjects of war, loneliness and other poignant matters as well. From track to track, the songs flow smoothly, some with more groove than others, but overall very well-produced (with many appropiately timed scratches throughout).

This album is a hip-hop gem, and it definitely deserves attention and respect.
