Attention New York and the entire East Coast - The West Coast abstract gymnastic tongue lashing over bass laced fun has back flipped and somersaulted right into your ears and has made a perfect landing. Outlined in a Aceyalone and Project Blowed rainbow, Tah Phrum Duh Bush, brings that odd west coast like hip hop circus feel to the center of New York and you will not want to miss your ticket to the big top of hip hop.

Before listening to Tah’s new release “Sunshine or Pure Shade” my hip hop obsessed ears closed up shop and turned to the rock genre in search of something new and refreshing. After a few weeks of empty listening I was rejuvenated with the nectar of this albums odd, quirky, yet lovable production and style. As well as the rolling vocals that will leave your neck fully worked and buff from a constant up and down workout.

http://www.freehiphopnow.com/images/tahbacksmaller.jpgFrom “Micro-PH-one01” [my personal favorite] and “Lay That Pipe”- Tah brings that summer feel to speakers that would accent any 40 ounce or pot bellied Dutch quite nicely. But nestled within the sweeping bass and comedic stylings lies a intelligent seriousness that is still enjoyable to listen to. In the farewell track, “Life and Death Dichotomy”, Tah reflects on the subject of life and death and dares to be brave by challenging the common everyday outlook on the matter. The way Tah balances humor and think material gives the listener a variety to look forward to. Hold off your 18 track illegal “Hot Summer Mix” and pick up a copy of this disc for either a summer ride or a night at home clutching a cold after work brew. Tah brings a raw yet stable flavor that will leave his unique sound forever embedded into your music memory.
