A Good Day marks Doberman’s second single released this year via the online jazz hop curator, following Something Cinematic, a somber and melancholic vocal piece delivered over the stripped-down production of Ryan Broadley.
Falling somewhere between Loyle Carner and the Fred Perry days of Alex Turner, Leeds-born rapper Doberman uses the medium of hip-hop to transcend states of social and emotional limbo.
Determined to push the territory of UK hip-hop into more alternative ground, Doberman’s Yorkshire drawl is unkempt in delivery and poetic in form.
By burying his frustrations within layers of multi-syllabic rhymes, and untangling his internal conflicts through intricate lyrical content, Doberman’s music represents the all-rhyming embodiment of the Great British disillusion.
On A Good Day,Doberman teams up with Chicago emcee and fellow Jazz Hop Café cohort AzMattic to deliver some lively multi-syllabic rhyme patterns that bounce over the spritely boombap production of Dutch jazz hop specialist Jah Dee.
Mixed by ExP of Flame Griller and mastered by Chemo aka Telemachus, the old school flavours of this upbeat sample-based hip-hop jam are the perfect accompaniment to a crisp Autumn morning.
