Ok Text Me is a four track EP of fantastic old-school hip-hop and rap. Rapper Lucid Optics, from San Jose, collaborates with UK producer Museum to great effect. The rhymes flow, and the production is utterly pristine, mixing analogue instruments – tasty Rhodes, and funky Fender licks – with crunchy beats to excellent effect.
It’s incredibly well put together, but it does lack a character of it’s own – it sticks so closely to such a classic template that it doesn’t offer anything particularly distinctive. I am being very picky though – this is another high quality release from Romeda Records, and it’s an absolute bargain at £2.00.
