It is rare that a track comes out of nowhere and hits you the very first time you hear it in a world of sensory brilliance. Hip Hop duo duality., consisting of two members LOU.M and Daigeau, have certainly achieved that level of brilliance and more with their debut track “Ketamine.” Silky smooth and infectiously organic, the groove is laid back, melodic and an unbelievable journey into the more sophisticated side of what the genre has to offer.
Borrowing from the masters of Soul and RnB, the intricacy of their flow and their intelligent use of layered vocals, rhymes and harmonies is the tonic the world has been waiting for. Group members Daigeau and LOU.M are based out of Los Angeles and yet their music moves far beyond the glitz, glamor and bling the city is known for.
Produced by Ashton McCreight, every element of Ketamine realizes duality’s ambition of making music that touches the soul. Referencing artists like D’Angelo, you can really get a sense of how the pair view the world. Soulful and yet complex, both rappers dance around each other in a vocal display which is a gift that keeps on giving.
Include a remix by DON DR3 which further liquefies the spirit, Ketamine is the drug that will satisfy any addiction. Occupying territory that only the greats can stand in, Duality are repping a style that will undoubtedly appeal to audiences far and wide.
Drop into the K Hole with Duality, If Ketamine is the drug, then they are the cure.
