Remember the good old days of French rap? When it was mainly soul, funky and harmless fun? Remember the De La Soul era of rap? Well if you do, you might well like this offering from KDD, Kartel Double Detente to call them by their full moniker, a rap collective from Toulouse in France, with Dad PDDA the main vocalist, and the rest of the gang. This album is pretty smooth, and quite low key, you don't get a lot of violent prose - nor do you get a lot of gangsta rap, like a lot of their newer material did. Some people have said this was too soft from KDD, and this is when they got rougher, and tracks like "Qui Tu Est?" came along, which really is nothing like their début right here.
This albums is good fun, from Big Bang KDD all about the group to a typical teenage story of a guy wearing his best polo to impress a girl - to drum and bass influenced "Rien Ne m'inspire". all about his boredom. I guess the only dodgy track you could say was here is Legalise - which is about drugs, but otherwise this album is rather tame, if you're looking for hardcore KDD you're better off looking after 1997, because before that they were mainly producing fun loving rap which had skits and a good sense of humour.
Worth a go.
