Beyond Hamsterdam, Baltimore Tracks from The Wire by Various Artists
Released: Jan 2008
Label: Nonesuch
While the soundtrack fails to acutely capture the urban ennui so adeptly depicted in the HBO series, it does signify the various sounds snaking through the Baltimore music scene. DJ Technics' break 'n' horn-heavy "My Life Extra" is a hip-house thrill that properly reps Baltimore club music. Rappers Ogun and Diablo are too unpolished to have a national impact, but their provincial rhymes fit with the series' devout B-Town focus.
