Elfen’s Neo-Soul Hip Hop Album pick of the week Hi-Hat Club Vol 2 Suff Draft (LP/CD/DIGI)
Have I got an album or series of albums for you! We’ve got the Hi- Hat Club. Who is the Hi- Hat Club? These are 9 fly beat makers that can mix together some smooth sounding samples and some amazing 16 bar flow that makes you wanna turn it up! Each member of the Hi- Hat Club has a role to play each of them have their own style and flavor. Today I was gonna give you Hi-Hat Club vol 1 of their collection but while listening to vol 2 while writing about vol 1 I was like lemme give you a review of vol 2 suff draft. This is a bangin’ album!
Suff Daddy is my first member of the Hi-Hat Club. Who is Suff Daddy?
Suff Daddy grew up in Düsseldorf (the city of Kraftwerk), listening to the 90ies hip-hop-collection of his older brother. His favourite group back than were Tha Alkaholiks. He caught the beatbug after he moved to Berlin five years ago, inspired by Quasimoto and Jaylib. Suff Daddy started working with MySpace postergirl Kissey Asplund back in 2005, who is also featured on his Beat 45 “Kill Bill”. Locally he is hanging out with fellow Berliners Jim Dunloop and Flomega. “Suff” means “drinking heavy” in German and his favourite drinks are Pilsetten and Tanqueray.
Sampling is an art form without a doubt. Suff knows his stuff. Each song has a jazzy, Neo-Soul, hip hop vibe to it. He takes us on a hip hop journey that you wish would never end. Here’s some of the tracks I play on repeat are….
