Kap Kallous – Blood (Prod by Optiks & Seandammit)

Kap Kallous – Resurrected (Prod by Optiks)

I know I’m a bit late on this one, as the Halloween craziness is gone for now, but since November is one of the darkest months of the year in my opinion, I think it is quite relevant to post this now. Following the release of his debut album I Should Have Kept My Mouth Shut back in March, Kap Kallous is back with another one of those conceptual EPs he is known for. After the media (The TV EP) and a love story gone wrong (The She EP, released on Valentine’s Day), the MC is back with a new very interesting project where his lyrical and story-telling skills are once again displayed. As was the case with the previous EPs, there is a cinematic dimension here and the different tracks could very well be the soundtrack to a horror movie. With The Zombie EP, Kap Kallous takes us on a journey through the deepest recesses of his mind, as he shares some very grim thoughts and imagines some stories that should make you feel a chill in your spine. In the same way as a good horror movie will get you hooked to the screen, torn between your somewhat unhealthy curiosity and the fright you can’t help but feel, this EP has an addictive dimension and you won’t be able to let go of it (or, should I say it won’t let go of you, as would a zombie you met randomly in an abandoned house lost somewhere in the countryside). This is emphasised with the gritty, haunting production courtesy of Kap’s partner in crime, producer Optiks, who produces the EP almost entirely on his own. I won’t tell you too much about the lyrics, so that I don’t spoil the surprise for you but I strongly advise you to give The Zombie EP a listen (preferably late on a rainy, windy night…).
