Da Phathedz

Finally a new review in this blog as the re-upping session’s eventually came to an end! The fine wax to be presented in here comes from the New Yorker producer duo…

DA PHATHEDZ. The producer-combo is actually two brothers (twins to be exact) that lives in queens and that is still very active in producing (under the synonym “Da TuneRaiderz”) and engineering (as “Da Phathedz”). The duo is production-wise not only limited to Hip Hop but also in latin styles and reggaeton (check their myspace site here) and besides that they also co-own the label Gladiator Records. During their long career Da Phathedz already produced & engineered many songs for artists like Q-Tip, Rah Digga, Masta Ace, Tragedy Khadafi etc. and, as they say, various other well and not so well known acts. The production you find is definitely one of the category “not so know artists”…

This fine piece of vinyl is an ep, pressed on a special 10” format. The name of the ep is “Da Nay-Ba-Hood Goodz & Treats” and it brings some good beats plus two great tracks that feature some totally unknown emcees. This review is about those two rap-songs…
“for the year” is the first banger and features a man on the mic that goes by the name of Tera Lo. The tune is rather sec and laid-back and fits perfectly to the easy flow of Tera Lo!
“darkness surrounds me” is performed by Lord Rebel and as you can imagine by the title already – shit is really sombre!

this shit is mad ill, i love both joints, if i had to choose, i would definitely choose darkness surrounds me, it has that real dark sound to it, it reminds me of a scene in a horror in a dark ass cave where the killer stalks, and i think this was released in '94, because in the tera lo joint he says '94 in his joint so im assuming darkness is also, or it could be that they were both made in 94 but the ep was released in'95, good post.
