DU6 aka Monsi du (1)6 grew up in Paris, then moved to Naples where he started to produce beats in the late 90's with the underground legendary neapolitan duo Cosang.
Many collaborations followed with several main southern italian rap artists (Luchè, Nto, Lucariello, now internationally famous as Gomorra's soundtrack performers).
It allowed him logically to dig and sample many 60's and 70's italian tracks. Indeed most of his beats are based on obscure italian loops, but also strongly influenced by his parisian years.
Make no mistake, in this Sixtape vol.1, we are taking here about gritty, greasy, bumpy hip hop instros stinking like it’s 1996. You’ll smell some of Mobb, some of N.O.I.D, some Nottz, some of the Bootcampish ish we all love.
Enjoy this sip of dope middle school boombap!
