The mysterious and multi-talented ParanormL first began as a hip-hop scribe at the tender age of 14. Now, more than a decade later, this rapper and lyricist has recorded over five albums worth of material, and over one hundred and fifty songs! So why have you never heard of this gifted boy wonder? Well, we may not be able to solve that conundrum for you, but what we can do is ask you to open your ears and help yourself to one of rap music’s best kept secrets.
ParanormL’s productions witness a welcome return to conscious lyrics, proper song writing, and a respectful connection between the roots and the shoots of rap culture. Tipping his hat to inspirations like ‘Satchmo’ and Ella, as well as A Tribe Called Quest, De LA Soul and Souls Of Mischief. It also sees tender keys (sounding something like a loop from a Minnie Ripperton and Charles Stepney cut) and perfectly placed hip-hop beats laying the foundation for that other-worldly sound. Of course, if righteous lyrics aren’t your thing, there are always the fat beats of producer Stylus One & Freddy Joachim and the ‘abstract hip-hop’ flavour on the instrumental versions of this trio of top-notch ‘jazz hop’ nuggets to get your filthy mitts on. Don’t say we don’t spoil you kids!
