The 22 year-old Serbian (currently New York) Hip Hop / Experimental rapper, producer and songwriter Def Manic has shared the stage with many huge International acts and released a superlative album D.R.A.W. last August (which is an acronym for “Do Right And Win”.)

Now he has released Cosby Kids x Mamacita from D.R.A.W

We had a listen:

This hybrid mixes Cosby Kids which is the first track on the album – with the fizzingly spirited Mamacita (little Mama).

You get an admixture of cool bopping jazz and organic drums, plus pliant keys.

So here it is — rap slickerie meets munificence — lusciously produced and lovingly repeated.

The muted trumpet is particularly melancholic. And the rap is expertly delivered.

This harks back to a time when hip-hop was masterful and wide-eyed… Back in the when.

And, in those days, things were more exciting, wonderfully blended and less selfish.

We just wanna see you get your head up… Here’s one way to start.
