This is one of the best mix tapes I’ve come across in recent times, and available at ‘name your price’ to download below, you really can’t complain! It’s a good taster of all that is going on with the Hellfyre club. See what you think below.
There’s lots more to explore on Hellfyre Club’s band camp site here.
While keeping pockets of the internet abuzz with their individual endeavours all through 2013, this is the first project that this line-up works on together with solo and collaborative songs from primary members of HFC, Busdriver, Nocando, Open Mike Eagle, milo and more.
Since releasing Hellfyre cult favourites like Flash Bang Grenada’s “10 Haters”, Open Mike Eagle’s “Rappers Will Die of Natural Causes”, milo’s “things that happen at day//things that happen at night” and “Cavalcade”, Hellfyre has been cementing itself as formidable force in the indie rap world. The forward thinking bass music sounds of Low End Theory (Nocando being the host of the weekly show) are a large component of HFC’s sound as is the Project Blowed backround that most of the rappers share.
Dorner Vs. Tookie is meant to act like as a pre-cursor to upcoming solo efforts from everyone in Hellfyre and a benchmark in their ever-evolving sound. With a handful shows from Busdriver with CocoRosie and Kool A.D. already under their belts, we’ll have to wait until spring of 2014 for a proper Hellfyre Club tour.
