Boomkat Product Review:
Ahhh yes, Skam definitely on a roll here. The magnificent Shadow Huntaz return in breathtaking fashion with this 7" taster for their forthcoming album "Valley Of The Shadows". "Rulez of Engagement" is a slow-paced killer, all layered strings and cinematic crescendo's, wrapped up in a typically resolute modified acid coating. This is exactly the sort of thing you'd dream hip hop would venture into more often, daring and open to influences that are normally kept away from the b-boy b-school. Epic midnight hip hop anyone? "That's The Plan (V2)" on the flip is much more straight-forward and jigged-up, a bouncing drumline and upfront lyrics that steer clear of the outside influences, though keeping it tight with that big Funckarma production. Killer.
