old school reunion is really what I would call old school electro hip hop and to my best judgment they are doing a good job doing so as well :-)

I think it is very refreshing to here how “osr” so successfully incorporate the traditional sounds of the 80’s and 90’s into their songs, which is not very common in today´s hip hop sounds. However, what disturbs me a little is that the drums does not really stand out in the mix – you do not get that really juicy damped sound of the bass drums, they feel a little to sterile

Conclusively, I like the vocals and the overall sound scape that “osr” has put into their mix, but I would give a little more love to the drum loops, both in terms of choice of sounds and its variation over the mix, some sounds does not feel as they belong their.

Worth listening to: Definitly, if you’re into hip hop
