DTMD 'The Basics EP'
It's very rare these days that I find new hip-hop that I like. So called rappers these days either try to be too underground or too gangsta, there's hardly a middle ground anymore. I long for the days where there was equal focus on the beats and lyrics and attention paid making sure that both were in synchronicity. DTMD have somehow found this formula and they put in action in their free EP 'The Basics.' DMV duo DTMD, made up of producer Dunc & emcee Toine, have released their latest project The Basics EP. You may recognize Dunc from his contribution to Diamond District’s critically acclaimed album In The Ruff and Toine from "95 North" off of Oddisee's "Oddisee 101" album. No gimmicks or coonery, just smooth headnodding beats and earnest wordplay. These cats are definitely on the watch for list.
