In the study of Ancient Egypt, the 7th Dynasty is notable for the lack of clear historical information on the period, as well as the breakdown in central authority that occurred during its span. (Thanks, Wikipedia!) Alterbeats’ reign over underground hip-hop seems destined to play out differently; on their latest single, the French production crew and their collaborators offer clear documentation of their dominance over the game, and showcase a level of skill and passion that will prevent their power from waning anytime soon. Over the headliners’ cinematic boom-bap grooves, Queens mainstay Tragedy Khadafi and Brooklyn spitter Divine skillfully interweave mysticism and ancient history with references to current events. Feeling it? More hot beats and tightly-wound bars await on Alterbeats’ Class Struggle LP, set to hit The DJBooth Tuesday, October 29, for free streaming and digital purchase.
