I just got hip to this free demo download from Dopkwe (the beat/rhyme combo of producer BeanOne and emcee Game Soulo). BeanOne is on his grind, as usual, concocting those left coast underground-flavored beats. And G-Soulo’s high-pitched flow goes nicely over said tracks.
I know Seattle doesn’t have a particular “sound” yet, but I hope that if and when it gets one, Bean’s name is mentioned in the conversation. His resume (Framework, Dyme Def, Choklate) is built solid like Qwest Field.
(Speaking of Frame, Hello World is also available via free download here. I had to scour the entirety of Capitol Hill one sunny day in ’05 to find a used copy of the CD. Too little, too late interwebs!)
