is an excellent compilation put together by Pascale Lanfranchi, who may be
better known to some of you for her 'Chez Nous le Hip Hop' slot during Sway and
Tech's syndicated 'Wake Up Show' during which she spins international sounds to
over 13 million listeners. Through her longstanding knowledge and contacts she
has collated the best tracks from the most well known and respected crews from
all over the world. This compilation is refreshing because each crew
demonstrates their hunger and brings their own unique influences whether they be
traditional instruments, local social issues or even Whale song! Many music fans
know about US Hip Hop, but may be blissfully unaware of rap from Croatia, Israel
or Greenland. Hip-hop is flourishing everywhere in the world, and people should
open their eyes and ears to these little publicised sounds.
