Laughing Underground

Laughing Underground by Tomer Yosef
Released: Aug 2008
Label: Jdub Records
Tomer Yosef spends his time singing/rapping about either politics or girls -- two very worthy subjects -- though you're going to have to brush up on your Hebrew if you want to get the deets. But you won't need a translator for these grooves, which filter snarky hip-hop through Israeli and Middle Eastern pop, detouring through Jamaica for the tub-thumping basslines. This is the cutting edge of the global ghetto, urban music for the multi-lingual masses who first found themselves quaking to Manu Chao and now can't stop their ears from seeking out previously hidden corners of the musical universe.
