The Dutch duo of rapper Pete Philly and producer Perquisite brought themselves to people’s attention with their debut album Mindstate a couple of years ago, providing a record where each track portrayed a different emotion. With that release they showcased their respective skills and Mystery Repeats takes those skills to the proverbial next level.
The track you can here on Crossfire is Q&A which features a nice bouncy beat, complete with a broken guitar hook and some exquisitely complimentary short bursts of piano. With this backdrop, Pete Philly’s chilled delivery flourishes and the catchy chorus rounds off a perfect example of how to make a summery hip hop track.
The rest of the album allows Perquisite to show his versatility be it the brilliant High Tide with its twists and turns ending in almost a DnB beat or the mostly sung Last Love Song with its occasional flute and staccato drums.
This record is one that you won’t immediately think about listening to, but after you’ve given it a couple of spins, you’ll realise that the potential for these two is enormous.
