First album from Munich's David Muallem - a 26-year-old guy from Munich. But his debut album sounds as if it was recorded somewhere between London and New York, at 10 000 feet, in a Learjet with Luis Vuitton leather seats. The underground DJ has produced a wild, shiny yet brutally raw mix of futuristic hip hop, digital soul and dancefloor-rockers. There's only one label that makes sense here: damn good. International standard, no doubt. Hip hop, sleazy disco, punk funk, electro soul - somewhere in between Maurice Fulton; SA-RA and old school rap. Feat. Lyrics Born, Beans, Wordsworth, Shawn Lee and Martine Girault. Frankie Splits - named after his favorite haunt in NYC - features a squadron of renowned guest artists, amongst them nu soul queen Martine Girault (Revival), the multi talented Shawn Lee (UNKLE, London) and US rappers Lyrics Born (Quannum), Beans (Antipop Consortium) and Wordsworth (Brooklyn).
