after an endless search-odyssey thru my mp3-abyssum I finally found it; I´m talking bout my deceased german-hiphop-project ‘A, D & Hoellen-G’ (from 1997-2003).
on the pic above you can see us in front of our private forest featuring from left: A (aka Andreas), D (aka Dennis), Hoellen-G (aka me) and E-Z Riddler (aka Jens), who was not really a part but often joined us for some doped-out freestyle sessions. 🙂
A & D were mostly MC´s and responsible for the lyrics while I was mainly the DJ and responsible for da beats and da overall arrangement.
‘A, D & Hoellen-G’ was never typical hiphop, especially when it comes to the music, which was way more lofi, distorted & wacky than normal hiphop-productions nowadays.
when it comes to the lyrics especially ‘A’ was the guy who often drifted away on political, social and humanistic issues, never caring bout f.e. american rap clichés like battling, dissing, drive-by shooting, etc.
we were way more oriented on oldschool hiphop & rap and never took ourselves too serious – a lot of other people did… 😉
so, enough talked – here are two examples:
furst one is rare live-recording from our song ‘Wirklichkeit’ (in engl.: Reality). it was performed at a party in our hometown bielefeld in 1999. can you guess the main sample?? 😉
second track named ‘Rassismus’ (in engl.: Racism) is from our homerecorded, selftitled album in 2001 and as the name says you can guess whats ontopic here?? checkout A´s driven & powerfully written lyrics!
enjoy the tunes!
