Boomkat Product Review:
The cult compilation primer on Dungeon Rap is mercifully available again via the underground ruff riders at Manchester’s Natural Sciences after the 2nd hand prices just went silly - will fly out, quick hands!
“Making moves out of Ukraine, DJ Sacred is the project of Alex Yatsun. An ex Doomshop Records affiliate whose debut release "Introduction to Dungeon Rap" on Natural Sciences ushers in a new movement in underground hip-hop with a sound pulled from war time machinery, rituals and ancient runes.
Split across three different aliases, and a host of collaborations (including MC Holocaust, Rita Keen & Devilish Trio), the record draws on the sounds of Norwegian black ambient, DJ Sound, Immortal Lowlifes and old school dungeon synth. Anti-establishment campaigns which are morphed and screwed into a sixteen track record that spans lo-slung hip hop, doom electronics and nightmare breaks. It's the sound of a new tormented world. A guttural vision of social media decay, celebrity status and virtual simulations. An introduction to the new wave of darkness.”
