Cartel Madras

Music / Hip-Hop/Rap / Canada

It might be somewhat unusual for Bhagya and Priya Ramesh to count MF Doom and Freddie Gibbs, but also M.I.A. and Cupcakke toward their direct musical influences. How the pulsating sound that the two sisters create from such an inspirational palette manages to sound downright brutal and yet absolutely feminine, however, is at least just as unusual. The production of tracks like "Goonda Gold" or "Working" combines the best of what contemporary trap has to offer, the bars of "Eboshi" and "Contra" are at a Missy Elliott level of quality and are served boiling hot, while traditional South Indian sounds give Cartel Madras' sound an unmistakable character. The queer duo has supported acts like Hollerado, Fetty Wap or the completely underrated industrial rap combo clipping on their US tour and have shown screaming crowds just how dirty, fucked up and in your face female-fronted rap can sound. After two EPs, half a dozen singles and the cultivation of their own signature, the two are more than ready to take to the stage in Hamburg. Caution: buckle up.
