‘Kommunicator’ is the third album from the hip hop four piece called Five Deez. The music is hypnotic with muffled beats and spiralling sounds around the rapping. The sounds and samples that are brought in to the mix are unusually melodic, balancing the tone of some of the harsher words. Not that the lyrics are offensive, they are largely positive – if listless and angry at times. What strikes me is the amount of experimental electronica and old school sounds that co-exist so successfully.
